Default difference between DSL jack 8103 vs 6102?

i have been using my 8103 on my AFP sim with no problem, but i just bought an 6102 as a backup and to use on my sons trainer and it will not work with the interface plug. If i pull the plug out of the socket about 1/8 of an inch it will then work but the plug will not stay in the socket in that position, it has to go all the way in to seat or it will pop out. I want my son to be able to use the 6102 on the sim before he goes on the buddy box. There has to be a difference in the jacks. i have seen a couple of other posts concerning the same thing. Would you please check this out and let me know? There was a post that mentioned that there a DSL jack for a mono plug and another for a stereo plug.

thanks

The DSC jacks are the same on both systems. The problem could be with the cord with the interface or the plug on the cord, or there may be an issue with the jack in your system. If you have a trainer cord, try setting up a buddy box set up. If the buddy box set up works, it would be a problem with the interface cord. If not, the problem may be with the system. Also be sure that your system is in PPM to work with a sim.

OK, the solution for the AFP JR 2610/6102/9x TX issue is indeed focused around the stereo plug as supplied on the AFP interface. A simple stereo to mono adapter does not do the job but I made up an adapter as follows:

Stereo Socket - Mono Plug
Tip - Tip
Ring - Shield
Shield - NC

Thanks to those that pointed me in the right direction.

I used this info to make an adapter and sure enough, my 6102 works perfectly. Go to Radio shack and get the parts, solder it up and you're all set. Have fun.[8D]
