Hey, you're in the home improvement zone--YOUR HANDYMAN ZONE!

Telecommunication Lines Category

Problem: 

Phone plug is damaged.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Appropriate phone plug

  • Modular connector crimping tool

  • Long-nose multi-purpose tool (wire cutter/stripper multi-purpose tool)

Solution:

 

If you find that your phone line plug is damaged, you'll need to replace the plug with a new one; any electronics store, home improvement store or phone/electronics online store should have replacement phone plugs for sale. 

Caution:  Because phone wires carry a small amount of electrical current/voltage, before working on any phone, make sure the phone is disconnected from the phone interface box (that is usually located on an outside wall), and this includes disconnecting its phone wire from the telephone jack.

Replacing a damaged phone line plug with a new plug can be done in a few steps, and here's how:

  1. Using a long-noise multi-purpose tool, cut off the old, damaged phone line plug about 1 inch from the end of the phone to which it is attached.

  2. Having cut off the old plug, with the phone line still in your hand, using the long-noise multi-purpose tool again, strip each of the wires of this phone line of its insulation down to about a half an inch.

  3. Next, you'll need to attach these bare wires of the phone line to the new phone line plug, and to do this you'll need to do the following:  Insert these bare wires into the new phone plug in the same wire-color order as was the case with the old, damaged plug, and then "crimp" the wires together permanently with the new phone plug, using a modular connector crimping tool to do this; be sure to set up this crimping tool and squeeze its handles to crimp correctly according to the modular connector crimping tool manufacturer's instructions.

Following the above steps will help guide you into replacing your old phone plug with a new one so that the phone line can work properly again.
