Adding a buzzer to your Swedish Ericofon

buzz1.jpg (11860 bytes)buzz2.jpg (9852 bytes) The buzzer I use is shown on the left. It's the closest thing I have found to sounding like an original Ericsson buzzer. When purchased, it has some sort of neon tube attachment. I remove this for use in the Ericofon.
The picture on the left is as purchased

Make sure no components or wires are touching the case of the buzzer causing a short circuit. If the big resistor is in the way, bend it out of the way, but be careful nothing shorts out. There's not a lot of space in here.

In the picture, I've circled where to hook up the buzzer leads. There may be variations, but in nearly all applications, this is the correct hook up.
If this doesn't work, try adding a jumper wire from the lower left buzzer terminal to the top screw on the back of the phone ("around the corner" from the screw with the red wire, at the top).
