Fibre DSL Light Off and Phone No Tone = Borked Socket or?


[link to this post]
 
As title really my DSL went dead last night - no light on the DSL indicator.

Tried resetting it, leaving off for 15 mins etc but nothing.

Also tried a phone which works in my other sockets (non Fibre ones) and has no tone in this.

So basically is the socket dead or maybe something as simple as a wire inside disconnected/loose haha.

Either way engineer coming Tuesday but maybe the original engineer did a rush job and now wire slipped out?

Was connected perfect no drop in signal for 2 months.

Probably not a good idea for me to open the faceplate is it? laugh And check haha.

Is it a split face plate? Can you remove the lower half and access the test socket.

Yes looks like bottom half can be removed.

Why what's the test socket? (i guess the word test means for testing the plate?) haha

Remove the bottom half and then plug in your phone. Does it work? None of your extensions should work.

Then add a dangly filter and plug in your modem, Does it work?

If both work then the lower half of the faceplate may be faulty or just a bad contact. Try refitting the plate (two or three times) and try again - what works?

Yours has got a filtered interstitial plate as well, which also needs to come off. See this page for details.

With interstitial plate need to do more than remove the small faceplate

Ah yes ok then i get a normal tone with the test socket on a phone.

I added a dangly filter but no luck on DSL connection.

Although come to think of it there was a thunderstorm pretty much when my DSL went offline.
Maybe some kind of problem with the Fibre Cabinet?
