Princess phone transformer light background

The Princess telephone and some Trimline telephones made by Western Electric use a transformer to light up the dial. In the old days, the telephone installer would simply plug the transformer into an outlet in an out of the way place, like a laundry room, and then wire the transformer to the yellow and black wires of the home telephone wiring.

Today, it's not recommended you do this because frequently those previously unused lines are now in use by various things, such as security systems, second phone lines, DSL computer connections, etc.

In this case, you're better off to wire just the phone you are using to the transformer only, this keeps the transformer isolated from the rest of the phone system. The Princess phone uses the green and red wires of a phone line for regular use, and it uses the yellow and black for powering the light bulb. If you're handy with a wire stripper, you can do this yourself and just buy the transformer. If you're not quite sure how to do this, or simply don't want to take the time, I've developed a home made "kit" that allows you to just plug in your phone and go.
