500DM + iaxy

3 posts in this topic

I obtained a Western Electric 500DM rotary phone and I am using it with my iaxy, everything works fine, excecpt for ringing. I hear the ringer moving but it doesn't quite ring (If that makes sense). Does any one know a fix/hack for this?

Open up the 500 set and adjust the bias spring on the ringer.

Also make sure the dial on the underside of the phone is set to LOUD.

Thanks Strom that did the trick, and the photos made it way too easy. It's going to be excellent for wake up calls, with asterisk.
