Need help with telephone lines (no dial tone)
Today my home phone made a partial ring (more like a chirp), when I answered it there was no-one there and no dial tone. It was working last night. None of my other jacks have dial tone now. I checked the box outside, plugged my phone into it and I have dial tone to the box so it's not the phone company. I took out the jack that the phone was connected to, the green wire was black on the end (but the rest of it is copper where it is showing). It broke off when I took the jack off so I'm not sure it was connected.
This is the only phone I had installed as we just moved into our house and are repainting. I don't think this has anything to do with it, but at the time the phone chirped my husband was reinstalling baseboards and other trim in the hallway but not near where the phone was. He said the phone lines would not have been run at the height he was nailing, but I thought he may have hit a wire which may have caused it. Is that possible?
Does anyone have any idea what I should check next?
