Default Re: Astral candlestick phone

These modern phones with electronic voice circuits has lots of different standards, so as you see it is a lot of possible things to try out. Still this phone are made in a relatively modern way, and parts are not always made to last for ever, nor repaired, but still we can if we are good enough. I hope we are. The receiver (loudspeaker) may not be bad, but to sort it out, it would be nice to test it. If it is has a plug on the printed circuit board (PCB) please unplug it and just test if it will have a load and clear dialing tone when connected direct to the line. If yes, the fault may be worse to find, but at least we know the receiver is working. If not, maybe that's all.

There seem to be 3 chips on the PCB in the base. Can you post the numbers on them. Somebody may then be able to make a good guess as to how it works.
