Apartment Building Intercom Troubleshooting

I am trying to fix the intercom system in my building. There are only 10 units on 2 lines. West and East. My intercom is on the east side and it works fine. The buzzer works, and I can open the door so people can enter the building. On the East side of the building, the buzzer works but the door release doesnt. I have replaced the intercoms in the individual apartments as well as the main system in the basement and the problem persists. Please help!

Not alot of info

You should always start with the equipment manufacturer and model number.
Are there two doors or one? If there are two doors, I would check the strike/mag lock on the door that doesn't work and the transformer or power supply that powers it.

more info

I apologize, this is my first time using these forums. the system used to be a tok-tone, just replaced it with Lee-Dan. There is only one door and it works, just in my apartment. not in the others. I assume there might be a short on the East side line, but why does the buzzer work but not the door release?

Which Amp? Which Apartment Station? 3 wire or 4? The more info the better.
