Trouble connecting pots line to MICS 7.1

Trouble connecting pots line to MICS 7.1

Trouble connecting pots line to MICS 7.1

(OP)
Hello,

I'm trying to connect one pots line to a MICS 7.1 and all I get is dead air on the T7316E sets.

The system has been in for 14 years and has had a good running DTI/PRI card in slot 4 since it was installed.

Today I powered down, added an analog trunk card in slot 3 and powered back up. The analog trunk card's a NT7B69AAAB GATC alaw/ulaw LS/DS.

In Hardware it shows card 2 type as loop start with lines 031-034. In Maintenance it shows card 2 enabled with 4 Lines.

I've got line 031 assigned as Appear and Ring on the phones but all I get is silence when pressing line 031 button.

I've verified that dial tone is present on WH/BL of the female amphenol connector by connecting a male to it and checking with my buttset on WH/BL of the male end.

I've also tried running the dial tone through the WH/OR, WH/SL and RD/BL for lines 032, 033 and 034. No joy.

Am I overlooking something? Maybe the analog trunk card's bad? Any suggestions?

RE: Trouble connecting pots line to MICS 7.1

Is you connect POTS to RD/BR, do you get dial tone ?

RE: Trouble connecting pots line to MICS 7.1

Per Missed...031 (line 5) starts at RedBrown/BrownRed

For every 2 lines you skip two pairs:
12||34||56||78

So if W/B is the only pair you get dial tone then you have amp cable issue.

Test with a new female amp and if it's ok then proceed to replace it.
I have seen maybe 10 in my life not punched correctly inside the connector.
Some the cover will slide off so you can see the connections.

You can also put a tone on the pairs and check the amp for signal.

Thank you gentlemen for pointing out that line 031 connects through the RD/BN pair. I was incorrectly trying to connect to the WH/BL.
I'll be back at the site Tuesday morning and will connect this pots line to RD/BN. Will post back after getting it running.

Punched the new pots line down on RD/BN and it's running like a champ.

Many thanks to misseditbythatmuch and curlycord for sharing their knowledge and expertise.
