Phone jacks not working

Hello,

Just recently all my jacks in my house died. I checked all of them and I found one that a wire appeared damaged. I fixed that and replaced all the old jacks as they were the originals in the house. Still doesn't work. I plugged it in where the line comes into the house (the home phone terminal) and it worked there. But everywhere else nothing.

Anyone got any other suggestions? As to what it can be? Its a 4 wire system and the red green are the ones used through the whole house.

Run a new cable from the NID to the first jack and test.

Do you have an alarm system ? It would be setup to interrupt the house phones.
