Wiring of master socket

Go to solution

I'm aware there's a few posts around this topic but have tried the solutions and not working for me.

I need to re attach the master socket and wiring in my house. I haven't got any extensions that need connecting. I need to know what colours go where please.

I have an AB terminal and 2 3 5 ports on the socket. 

I have 3 pairs of wires

Orange with white/white with orange

Green with white /white with green

Blue with white / white with blue.

I don't have a telephone which needs plugging in, just a broadband modem

Pics attached for reference. If anyone can help I'd  be so grateful! 

Please could you advise which needs to go into A&B and if any into 2 3 5

Thank you!

Only 2 wires will be live, most likely the blue pair. Connect to the 2 terminals on the backplate of the socket, it doesn't matter which way round they go.

Are there any terminals on the backplate of the socket rather than the removable portion?

In that case, A&B, the numbered terminals are for extension wiring.

That is internal cable, you need to see where your external cable comes in and what colour wires are connected to it.
