Phone line noise with 322 ?
Posted 07 April 2005 - 08:30 AM
Main problem is Phone line noises its so bad you cant talk on the phone .. I have Dsl and all filters are correct..
I had two 322's had them both replaces.. Now i have a 522 Dvr and 322 and issue is still there ..
They said they did have modem problems in older 322 ..
When phone line is unplugged noise goes away and they dont care..
Phone company and I traced it to the phone lines to the recievers ..
I have had Tech after Tech here and Know one has solved the issue
Now Dish Network wont do a thing to help me ..
They wont drop the charges of the Phone line for me ..
Has any one else had this issue and what did you do to correct it ??

The jack that you are plugging into may be wired wrong. You can get a cheap analyzer from radio shack to check that. has two little LEDs on it. But first, try plugging your 322 into a different phone jack and see if the noise is still there.
Could be a ground loop problem. Unplug everything from the 322, unplug the AC power, the dish, the tv, the vcr, the phone line, everything.
Listen to the phone. you may need to dial one number to get the dial tone to go away. Plug the 322 into the phone line. Any noise? Plug the 322 into the AC power. Any noise? If there is, and the 322 has a 3 prong AC plug, some people might try to lift the ground by using a ground plug adapter. I am not recomending this, so if you try this and die, I am not to blame. If you do decide to risk your life and try this, and the noise goes away, then you know where your problem is.
If you don't have any noise yet, slowly and carefully plug things in one at a time and listen between each to try and find when the noise starts. Note that it could be coming from multiple ground loops.
Just because you find a ground loop, it doesn't mean that it will be easy to fix. But at least you will have a starting point.

Thanks for the info... the first tech guy replaced the phone jacks and added a ground wirer to the main phone area ..
Also, i tryed a new phone line to the reciever and it didnt help
2nd Tech guy a diff one opened the jacks and said things are switched around and he used one of them phone testers you talked of with the 2 lights
so he changed things around in the Jacks
My noise all goes away when Phone line is disconnected from the Phone wall Jacks the 1st Man installed ..
I even let the Tech at Dish Network hear it they said yes noise is bad and goes away when i unplugged the lines
But they wont allow me to go with out the lines or i will be charged the darn 10.00 ..

It seems as you are having grounding problem in your house. Good luck.
