2nd STEP
There Will Be A Large Lifted Screw Terminal Labeled “BLACK” Remove ALL The Wires From
That Screw Terminal, Then Test Communication Again.
** IF YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO TALK OUT OF THE MASTER UNIT
Put All BLACK Wires Back ONE At A Time (Test Communication Every Time You Add A Black
Wire) Until You Find The One That Is Locking Up Your System Or Causing The Volume To Drop.
*** REMEMBER After Testing A Wire And If It Works Do Not Remove The Wire Keep It Under
The Large Lifted Screw Terminal And Add In Another Wire To It, We Need To Put A Load On
The System.
** IF YOU ARE STILL NOT ABLE TO TALK OUT OF MASTER
Then Keep All BLACK Wires Removed And Now Remove All The WHITE Wires, Then Test
Communication Again.
If At The Point You Are Able To Talk Out To The Room Stations At A Normal Volume Then Go
Ahead And Put All Your BLACK Wires Back, Then Test Communication Once Again.
If You Can Still Communicate Put All WHITE Wires Back ONE At A Time (Test Communication
Every Time You Add A White Wire) Until You Find The One That Is Locking Up Your System Or
Causing The Volume To Drop.
*** REMEMBER After Testing A Wire And If It Works Do Not Remove The Wire Keep It Under
The Large Lifted Screw Terminal And Add In Another Wire To It, We Need To Put A Load On
The System.
