      removing the ring wire

      I want to know how I remove . Usually there are two wires that should be in but when intake the faceplate off there is no wires. So I go behind the test socket and there is a few wires not connected into these screws. Do I pull and yank out the orange is this the ring wire or is it already disconnected.
      Note that I have a master socket.

      Re: removing the ring wire

      If you have no extensions there will be no wires attached to the faceplate, so you will not have a ring wire. If you do have extensions, your wiring is incorrect and should be fixed.

      Re: removing the ring wire

      The Screws attached to the back of the BT test socket are the incoming line... leave it well alone!

      the other wires could be spare pairs in the incoming BT cable (Incase one of the other wires break or you wanted a second line)

      If there's no wiring on the FACEPLATE (this is the lower part of an NTE5) then you do not have any extension wiring (Or at least if you do it's not wired to the current standards)

      There is one exception to this and that is if there are more than one wire attached to each terminal. I have known Diyers who attach their extension to the AB terminals, there are also some cases of alarm fitters doing this in the past, before the advent of broadband. Both practises are wrong and should be corrected.

      I'd still advise caution when touching this, particularly if you're incoming cable is aluminium instead of copper as the aluminium cables if they've corroded tend to disintegrate when poked, which will result in a nice bill from BT to put it right.
