    Hi

    I had to detatch a landline socket from the skirting board and in doing so seem to have pulled a wire out. I can no longer dial out and if I dial in e.g. from my mobile, I hear it ring on the mobile but nothing on the landline. There are only 3 wires and 6 numbered connectors on the socket. (it's not the master socket)

    A red/orange one is still in 2
    The blue one is still in 5

    These two have stayed in place from when the phone was working so I assume they're not the problem

    The culprit which I assume I have pulled out is a white wire. Any ideas where it should go?

    As always thanks in advance and I've uploaded a pic of the socket

    Steve

    Well they said they couldn’t dial out ....2 and 5 are the line .....normally blue and white ...3 is only for the ring ...and it’s on a separate cable so I stand by 2
