Orange wires on PIN 3 are the ring wires, so not needed and create a source of noise pick up usually. Hence why the I-Plate exists.

Simplest is to disconnected and wrap exposed ends in insulation tape.

NOTE: Looking at picture the wiring job is a cowboy one, the wires should NOT be stripped, and not twisted together inside the IDC connectors. Wires should be inserted using a krone tool and the connector cuts the insulation to make contact. As things are now the connector jaws are probably forced apart and would cause problems if you went back to just one extension in the future

For now removing orange should help,

As I am not using the master socket will this help ? I thought the orange wires were the extensions from the master socket to the other ones

They are legacy requirements that are no longer relevant with modern telephones.

House power is not involved with the phone line so no need to turn power off. Generally it is best to remove the ring wire from all extensions and the master - it is not necessary anymore and if removed from all then will ensure it cannot cause any issues

I don't know if you saw the pictures but I can't remove the plates of the other ones , they are no visible screws , only on the master on I can , would it help at all if I just do the master one ?

At the master socket is the prime one to go for. The extra benefit from removing it at extensions is relatively small.

Removing it at the master can add as much as 1.2Mbps to the connection speed - we have seen that figure on these forums. It isn't usually that much, but it is normally a significant gain.

The ring/bell wire is what made old type phones ring, the ring being generated within the master. Most modern phones can generate it within their own circuitry, though a tiny minority apparently can't. This doesn't normally matter, as the dangly filters also generate it.
