      Krone The fact that BB works but you have no dial tone suggests you have the incorrect pair. Try each wire in turn to see if you get dial tone. If you can't get d/t with any combination then you have a line fault.

      If the orange and white were the only wires that were 'marked', then they will be correct. If think you have a line fault. If I were you I would clean up the ends of the wires(snip off the used bit) put them back into the 2 and 5 terminals and call in your line provider.

      I'm with Isitme.

      In your photo there is a white cable in the back box as well as the incoming black one.
      I assume you have wired extensions from this.
      For the time being I would be inclined to leave those off then no-one can blame them for your lack of phone service.
      You will just have a master socket albeit of the older type.

      When you remake the connections (with your new chroneplated Krome tool ) the white wire should be inserted from the other side.

      When you have the phone service fixed you might want to consider replacing the LJ2 with an NTE5 and fit a filtered faceplate which will give best results for ADSL.
