Phone jack stop working
Asked Jan 16, 2007, 12:11 PM
Anyone have any idea why a phone jack would stop working? For a couple of days, there was a lot of static on the line but it worked. To remedy that problem, I tried unplugging and replugging the phone a number of times. Then I got no dial tone at all. I tested the phone at another phone jack in the house and it worked, then tried a different phone in the original jack and couldn't get a dial tone. This was all done using the same phone cord. Do you think just replacing the jack will take care of it, or is there a chance that there is a break in the line somewhere inside the house? Is there a way to check that?
I did remove the cover of the phone jack and tightened screws (which all seemed to be connected OK).
Any advice would be appreciated.
