phoneadapter for 4-prong plug into RJ11 plug

Post by sdio.. » Sun, 16 Apr 2006 17:18:53



Sir,
i bought an Ericofon telephone that has 4-prong plug and i want to
connect it into an RJ11 jack (standard modular style). I bought an
adapter that has two wires,a green and yellow one at one side, and the
socket for the RJ11 in other side. How can i connect the wires ?

Thank you
Akis

   Ah, yes.  Radio Shack -- "You've got questions, we've got blank stares!"
But they do have a cell phone for you!

   Radio Shack ain't what it used to be.

If this were meant for European use, the 4 prong plug will be different
from the North American 4 prong plug.

Radio Shark used to have adapters from N/A 4 to modular, but if it is
the European one, you are SOL for an adapter.

The best thing to do is buy a cable, modular on one end, and spade lug
at the other.  Dollar stores, electronic stores, phone stores, flea
markets, etc.

See:
http://images.google.ca/images?q=tbn:o1TqZsPNm3oSpM:www.radioshack.co...

If you open the phone, you should find the wires are colour coded the
same as the spade lugs are on the cable.  If it ISN'T, then take the
phone to a phone service place.  If the same, then ONE by ONE,
disconnect the original wires and connect the spade connectors.

Note the red/green wires are for Line 1, black/yellow for line 2.  If
you only have one line, then only red/green need be connected.

The colours should be
Black
Red
Green
Yellow

Hope this helps

"the red/green wires are for Line 1, black/yellow for line 2.  If
you only have one line, then only red/green need be connected."

That's another one of those little things that has
been bugging me for a long time. I never could figure out why there
were 4 wires to connect a phone.

So, it' really only two and the other two are for a second line.
That makes sense. Thanks.
