T-View 100

T-View 100 was a video telephone, made by Deutsche Telekom / Siemens.

manawyrm has two of these phones, laforge owns two as well.

External photos
Front view of the T-View 100 Back view of the T-View 100

Power supply is called STN20, output DC 22.5V; 0.9A. Center positive, 5.5/2.5mm barrel jack.
The RCA connectors are (from left to right): Audio out, Video out, Video in, Audio in

Mini-DIN / RS232

The Mini-DIN (8pin) connector carries a RS232 serial. It was used to connect to auxiliary devices like relay control boxes (to alert deaf people of calls), VCRs (remote control) and PCs (for firmware updates).
We have a copy of the 1.2 firmware update and the RS232 communication protocol.

RS232 pinout is given without Null-Modem reversal (aka it's meant to be a male connector), reverse RXD/TXD and RTS/CTS for a female connector.
Serial settings (for debug output) seems to be 19200, 8n2.

The framing and at least some commands are described in V24-Control.pdf

Service menu

There is a hidden service menu. Scroll to "Service", press OK, type the number 7.
Enter passcode "3570" and press OK.

"Service" -> 8 is another hidden option for a "Factory SETUP". The passcode is 3745.

Phone disassembly

The bottom cover plate has 6 Phillips screws and is clipped together at the bottom. Use multiple guitar picks to get them free.
The plastic does not seem to be brittle (yet), some force is OK.

Backside of the main video / interfacing PCB is visible under the cover plate:

Lift the video / interfacing PCB out by pulling it straight up, it's connected via a rigid interface PCB (but not screwed down):
Interconnect PCB between the video/interfacing and telephone PCBs

Unscrew the 7 Phillips screws attaching the plastic shield. Be careful with the speaker wires on the right, they are not detachable!
Lift the plastic shield out of the way to the right. When re-assembling, make sure the hook-mechanism and speaker are correctly in-place.

Display/camera disassembly

Disassembling the display/camera unit is a bit tricky. You'll need a 10mm socket (and possibly socket extension)!

Start by removing the 4 screws on the connector:
Backside of the display/camera unit

then remove the 3 screws in the top of the unit.
The sides of the display/camera unit are covered with round covers. They can be pulled out with a bit of force.
Round side cover plates removed on the display/camera unit

Use a 10mm socket to unscrew the nuts on both sides.
Lift the connector cover. This is tricky! Please fill in a good way to do this. The author broke 2 plastic clips by doing it:
Interconnect PCB on the bottom of the display/camera unit

Remove both bolts (and the washers). The swivel piece can now be bent inwards slightly with a bit of force to get it out.
Underneath the swivel piece on the display/camera unit
Unscrew the 2 remaining screws holding the display unit together.

There are clips all around the display/camera unit. Use guitar picks again and open the display.

Common faults

- Faulty display hotbar
Symptoms: Missing (pixel) rows / columns on the (24x2) character LCD.
Fix: Try and reheat the hotbar (~180°C) with a clean soldering iron tip and a lot of pressure

Symptoms: Garbled characters/stuck bit
Fix: HD44780 interface is connected via Hotbar as well.
Find out which bits (D0-D7) are affected and solder wires for those bits directly to the LCD

LCD pinout

- Faulty display hotbar
Symptoms: No LCD output at all
Fix: Buy a new LCD. You'll need one with HD44780 ROM code A00 charset (the Japanese/Kana charset). The 0xE1 character should be "ä" (a with Umlauts).

- Faulty capacitors
Symptoms: Crashing, low display contrast, flickering LEDs, poor video quality, mains hum on the speakers
Fix: Replace all electrolytic capacitors

Remove the old caps using the Twist method

- Bad connections
Symptoms: Phone working, no picture, no backlight
Fix: Replug the display assembly a couple of times

- ?
Symptoms: Nothing, black screen, no LEDs, ~500mA current draw
Fix: ?
