• Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit and the telephone wall
jack.
• Charge the battery in the handset for 16 hours. For optimum daily performance, return the
handset to its base when not in use.

Additional information
First try all the suggestions above.
Move the handset closer to the base. You might have moved out of range.
Your line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new line cord.
If the previous suggestions don’t work, disconnect the base unit from the telephone jack and
connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone either, the problem is in your
wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company.
Troubleshooting
Problem
Suggestion
I cannot dial out.
• Make sure you have a dial tone before dialing. The handset may take a second or two to find
the base and produce a dial tone. This is normal. Wait an extra second before dialing.
• Make sure your phone is set to the correct dial mode for the type of service that you have (pulse
or touchtone). Refer to the Installation section of this user’s manual to set the dial mode.
• If the other phones in your home are having the issue, the problem is in your wiring or local
service. Contact your local telephone company (charges may apply).
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio or other appliance may cause
the phone to not dial out properly. If you cannot eliminate the background noise, first try muting
the handset before dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with less background
noise.

FCC Part 15
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the requirements for a Class B digital device under Part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. These requirements
are intended to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and
used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures:
* Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
* Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
* Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
* Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of radio frequency energy that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander according to the intended usage of the product.
