You could disconnect all telephone devices (phones, answering
machines, caller ID units, etc., test with a known good phone, and
then start plugging things back in one at a time, checking for the
dial tone at each step.
As the RJ11 connectors are OK it may be a shorted cable connecting
them in the wall -- rodent?

As you probably know "Line 1" is the Red/Green (or equivalent) pair;
in the jacks they are the inner connectors. "Line 2" is the
Black/Yellow (or equiv.) pair, and are the outer connectors. I'm
wondering if perhaps the old Line 2 pair is still connected to the
Someone mentioned a 6" wire; maybe try replacing this with a
two-conductor (vs. four conductor) to test if the old Line 2 from
outside is causing problems. (If you look at the connector you'll see
either two or four metal connectors.)
