The jack was not off the wall and wire use. how do I rewire the jack?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

No name 10 years

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

One week I try rewiring the jack by matching the wire coming from wall with the color in the jack.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Phone Expert to know before I connect you?

When I connect the wires I get like a busy sound

I requested a live chat but haven't received answer, I also did not get a text answer to my question. I knot the jack away from the wall wiring and would like know how wire it back.
Electronics Technician: Pete, Engineer replied 8 months ago

First we need to know what type of jack it is. Is it a phone jack? Or a network jack? Or some other jack?

I want connect the wires to the phone jack
Electronics Technician: Pete, Engineer replied 8 months ago

Thanks for clarifying.

The primary circuit is wired to the center two pins (pins 3 & 4) and is the white/blue and blue/white pair.

A standard single line phone draws dial tone from these center pins.

Here is the full pinout wiring diagram, attached.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
how do I see the attachment?
Electronics Technician: Pete, Engineer replied 8 months ago

Are you using a computer or a mobile device?

If you click on the attachment it should open.

  • Do you only have 3 wires?
  • Is this an older house?
  • Can you attach a photo of your wiring?
