    Hi, I am hoping someone can help me with this? I have this SL-6166 in this post, can someone please tell me what two points I can jumper to make this doorbell chime manually? I do have the doorbell button trnasmitter, and it does work when pressed, but that is wireless. I need to find a way to use a jumper wire and manually jump the circuit board to make the chime go off without the wireless transmitter button. I am trying to have myhome automation "trigger" this doorbell chime from a device that will send a "closed" thru 2 wires to two points on the circuit board. I can't use the wireless button transmitter in my setup. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to AAC.

    Congratulations, you have practiced the arcane art of necromancy, the revival of a long dead thread. Likely the OP (Original Poster) has solved his problem in the years that has passed, or thrown it away, or something.

    In addition, A thread belongs to the OP (original poster). Trying to take over someone elses thread is called hijacking, which is not allowed at All About Circuits. I have therefore given you a thread of your very own.

    The attached pic of the board is from an older question on here, so credit the pic to that author.

    Alright, I kept at it and got it to work, and then it went bad. I figured out that by jumping from the little green board with the black blob on it #3 pin to "J5" on the main board, next to the +speaker wire. This made the chime work manually about 75% of the time. When it didn't work, it did nothing at all. This finally stopped working all together after about 2 hours. So, I think I probably blew a diode or something. The point is yes, it can be done, but, I couldn't find a way to do it correctly. So this question can be marked as closed. Thank You.
