caller id telephone repair

I received this telephone that all the functions were dead. The wall out wire was the first thing that I replaced with a good one the sockets of the telephone wire was broken.

But telephone still is not functioning. I opened the box of machine and directly search for fuse/ filter of telephone  the code of this fuse was TPA2000.

This fuse/filter does not show any reaction to multimeter even in fresh state.



I had in my stock P6KE200 from my last repair they are same as each other’s but still no voice in handset. After this the red led s of key board turned on to red lights this means voltages of the line are reaching to machine. I replaced the earphone hand set with a good one, yes the voice of beep beep line is coming now. This means the earphone of the telephone under test has problem.

Then I replaced the earphone capsule of telephone with a fresh one that I had in my stock  but still the telephone has more problem! The key board is working and numbers are shown on the display LCD but not transmitting from the phone to the line and telephone center this means the main board of telephone has problem.

I resoldered all bad joint but still no progress then I start to check the electrolytic caps I found a bad biggest cap in the main, the legal value according the cap must be 1000 microfarad@10v but my cap tester read this 1444! And ESR at most must be 0.12 but I had 0.14 I replaced the cap, (this is the purifier electrolyte cap that is part of the power supply, of telephone) now the main board start to transmit dialing numbers, also I have to mention that on the main board of telephone zener diodes with different voltages are installed to regulate proper voltages for different part of machine when I push the button of HIGH PHONE to see if is working or not?

bad ecap

The speaker had no any voice this means somewhere something is disconnected may be? Or speaker itself has problem?, by following back  from speaker by help of  the beep tool of multi I found out that one of the 22 wire of flat cable was disconnected from pcb, just the first wire that was belongs to speaker line was broken, the kind manufacturer of the telephone printed the pcb just in front of each wires of flat cable one by one and mentioned the job of each wires like spk or tone, and etc….

This made my job much easier by the help of the pin of one unused resistor and soldering iron I reconnect the wire no1 of the flat to the pcb, I desolder the pin hole of the first wire and by the help of solder sucker I cleaned the hole number one on the pcb  then I cut about one centimeter of resistor pin  and soldered on pcb , by scraping the plastic of flat by a sharp blade I made it ready the rest of wire no. 1  to solder with the installed pin .after that speaker starts to produce whistling!!

This means that Audio frequencies are reaching to the speaker but speaker does not have enough abilities to produce the normal sound for human ear!  The speaker must be 8 ohms according to the attached label on the back of the speaker but my multi read this lower!

shorted speaker

This means some wire windings of speaker must be shorted! I replaced the speaker with a good one. Now telephone completely is working with no problem and strongly returned to services. And a few dollars were the cost of this repair.

Note: In these kind of the Chinese telephone the wires between the boards are very short due to saving the wire and make the final product more economical but in repair job these wires must be extended and more wires must be added to the original wires Unless otherwise repair is not possible and testing the boards are difficult, but same number wire must be used.

NOTE: I took the photo of telephone in the darkness to show the beauty of red and green lights color of the LEDs on the panel after telephone was rescued.

    Very good job, Mr Beh! Thanks for sharing.
    Just one comment: 8 ohms is the rated impedance of the speaker. Don´t be confused with the ohmic resistance, that is normally much lower when measured with the ohms meter. Probably the problem was solved due to another factor in the speaker.

      you are welcome .yes this could be correct .any way by relacing the speaker had I a good voice with no noises .and thanks for your comment

    You have a lot of phones to fix these days Beh. I understand that the 1000uF capacitor was really bad measuring 1444uF, but how did you find the ESR value being too high being only 0.02 Ohm higher? Is your ESR meter that exact? I don't think I can measure this precise with my Blue_ESR and other digital meters.

    YES due to differences between the value of cap and measured by meters I replaced the cap and that was a correct decision. yes I have BLUE-ESR meter as well as ATLAS ESR meter. also I promise to you that I won't accept any more telephone for repair in my workshop from now on. just LED TVs 55 INCHES and bigger. Samsung and or LG brand not small electronic machines!

      You may still fix smaller devices Beh. No need to fix those big 55inch TVs instead if you don't feel up to it. Chances are they only gives lesser successrates.

    That's a lot of work to be done on a telephone! But you never let it go and pursued until you found the positive result! Real grit and determination! Anyone else would have easily left it! Good job and encouraging service!

    Please continue to fix the things that are presented to. A successful repair, big or small, pays the bill. Yes, I agree the small items take a lot of time and might not be profitable!

      Yes this is true repairing of one LED 55 INCHES for example is much easier than one of these smaller machines in such big TVs there is three or four PCB board and each has a cod number the only job that you have just guess which one is faulty then by ordering the board to your local supplier and or china and then by replacing the board the tv is fixed of course rarely technician s repair boards by their own small smd need special tools and experiences and knowledge and most of the customized parts are not find in the market.DEVON thanks for you comment...cheers.....beh
