PostPosted: Wed Sep 28, 2005 7:43 pm    Post subject: Line Goes Dead After Home Wiring Reply with quote Back to top

I posted this in another thread, but I thought I might get some help faster if I started a new one.

I followed all of the home wiring directions and my lines are now dead and free of voltage. When I plug my PAP2 into a phone jack all of my phones get a dial tone and work. The problem is that the phones act as if they are off the hook. I can listen in on a phone and it gives a dial tone, then it gives a slow busy signal, then a fast busy signal and then the line goes dead. Somehow the system is not recognizing that I have hung up the phone, it still the thinks the phone is on. If I plug a single phone into the PAP2 it works fine and knows when I hang up. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem???

Thanks in advance.

This won't help you much, but I can tell you that if you are getting dial-tone when you go off-hook, the PAP2 does not think you have a phone off-hook. If you go off-hook and get dial-tone, and then stay off hook monitoring the dial-tone, getting a fast busy is normal.

As I said, I know this doesn't fully answer your question, but if you are getting dial-tone you don't have an off-hook condition.

Edit: I have a PAP2 as well, and when I go off-hook and get dial tone, the dial-tone will time out if I don't dial any digits in about 7 seconds giving treatment - first a regular busy, then a fast busy. This is just how it works - not unlike a telco line. If you don't break dial-tone with a DTMF tone, it thinks you left the phone off the hook and stops looking for dialed digits.

Thanks for the reply. It goes off hook even if I don't pick up the phone, that's the problem. If I plug the PAP2 into the phone jack and never pick up the phone, it does the same thing. If I listen in a minute or so after I have plugged it in, the line is dead. This is really weird, any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Describe how you are connecting the PAP2 to your home wiring and how and when you are seeing dial-tone. You mention that you have dial-tone on all your phones - is this only for a minute before they are all ? If you provide some exact details of what you've done it will be easier for someone to respond with a solution.

I'm assuming that you have all your home wiring still connected together at either the Telco Network Interface or some other common point if you ever had dial-tone on all your lines, is that correct?

It would also be useful to know how all your jacks are wired- standard home installs usually have each wire from the rooms run to a central location in an attic or basement then each wire is just twisted together to make connection. This twisted together isn't the most reliable or error-free junction.

If you have erratic issues with home wiring, look where all the lines run to - it could be a cross-connection issue or grounding as it sounds the PAP2 is responding to signals it isn't expecting on the line.

Thanks for asking about the way the phones are wired, it made me actually look at them. I unscrewed all of the jacks in the house and have come to the conclusion that the previous owners had 2 lines. Some of the jacks have 2 cables coming into them and others only have one cable coming in. Question: Do I need 4 wires hooked up to the jack or just 2 wires? They all have the blue, blue w/white, orange and orange w/white. I think is what I'm going to do is go around to all of the jacks and wire them the same exact way. I haven't been down in the crawl space to see if there is any main box that it all goes to, but when I do that, is there anything in particular that I should be looking for?

Thanks for the help guys.

For each telephone line you need just two wires (one pair) - referred to as Tip and Ring. For your one line, the convention is to use Blue / Blue & White. If you wire everything the same you should eliminate your problem.

Look here for a detailed resource:

I have gone through the house and re-wired all of the jacks so that they are all the same using blue and blue/white only as I have only one line. The phones are wired using one line Cat 5 wire coming into the house and then the phones are wired from one to the next and so on. Nothing very fancy going on here, yet I am still having the same problem as before. The Vonage service acts like I have a phone off the hook when I plug it into my home wiring. The last thing I'm going to check is my alarm box and see what the deal is there. Anyone know what I should be looking for? I have a Brinks system a little over a year old.

Thanks for the help as always.

I have exactly the same problem. It works on the phone lines in the house for about a minute and then goes completely dead.

Do you have an alarm system hooked up?
