Safety instructions
Use only the approved battery
pack supplied. Spare batteries –
Item Code: 871996 are available
from BT Shops and the Synergy Helpline
0845 602 1041.
Do not open the handset or base station.
This could expose you to high voltages or
other risks. Contact the helpline for all
repairs.
There is a slight chance your
phone could be damaged by an
electrical storm. We recommend
that you unplug your Synergy 2110 from
the mains power and telephone socket
during storms.
The Synergy 2110 will produce a
certain amount of heat during
operation. Equally, the handset as
well as any additional chargers you
purchase can also become warm during
charging. We advise against placing these
products on antique, veneered or wooden
surfaces as damage may occur.
Do not use the handsets in places
where there are explosive
hazards.
If you wear a hearing aid, please
note that the Synergy 2110 works
by sending radio signals between
the base station and handset. These
signals may interfere with some hearing
aids, causing a humming noise.
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Do not try to use any other power supply
except the one provided, otherwise you
may permanently damage your Synergy
2110. It may also invalidate the guarantee
of this apparatus. To get a replacement
Synergy 2110 base station power supply
unit – Item Code 872273 – contact the
Synergy Helpline 0845 602 1041.
Do not dispose of used batteries
with general household rubbish
and do not burn them.
Synergy 2110 can interfere with other
electrical equipment, e.g. answering
machines, TV and radio sets, clock
radio/alarms and computers if placed too
close. It is recommended that you place
your Synergy 2110 at least one metre away
from such appliances to minimise any risk
of interference.
Make sure you connect the power and
telephone lines to the correct sockets in
the base station.
Clean the handset and base station with a
damp (not wet) cloth or antistatic wipe.
Never use a dry cloth as this may cause a
static shock. Never spray cleaning fluid
directly onto the telephone.
Do not use the Synergy 2110 in
damp, humid conditions such as
bathrooms. Do not expose the
equipment or batteries to fire and water.

Synergy 2110 - Edition 5 – 23rd October ’00 (3375)
Setting up
Follow these steps to set up your Synergy 2110 ready for use.
Plan the location of your
Synergy 2110
Your Synergy 2110 works by sending
and receiving radio signals between
the base station and the handset.
The strength of the signal can depend
on where you site the base station.
Generally, the higher the base station
is located the better. An upstairs room
is ideal.
SETTING UP
The following points should be
considered:
• It should be within 3 metres of a
power socket and phone socket
otherwise extension cables will be
required.
• Try to avoid locations near metallic
obstructions or electrical appliances,
such as TV sets, fridges, computers,
fluorescent lights, radiators, metal
pipes and metal window frames.
• Make sure it is at least 1 metre
away from other electrical products
to avoid interference.
Please note
The Synergy 2110 has a range of up
to 300 metres outdoors and up to
50 metres indoors. It is possible that
the range may be affected by being
near water (e.g. large ponds, lakes
and the sea) as well as large metal
objects (e.g. radiators, metal
partition walls and steel girders).
1 Connect the power cable
Plug the power cable into the power
socket on your Synergy base station.
Plug the adaptor into the mains power
supply and switch on.
The Power/In Use light comes on.

flashing
Battery low warning.
If the handset battery symbol is
empty and flashing, and you hear
a warning beep every 10 seconds,
you will need to recharge your
handset before you can use it.
The Synergy 2110 uses a Nickel
Cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery pack supplied.
Take care to connect the battery as
shown and replace the battery cover.
3
Charge the handset battery
for at least 16 hours
Under no circumstances should
non-rechargeable batteries be used.
Only use the approved batteries.
Using unapproved batteries will
invalidate your guarantee and may
damage the telephone.
Place the handset on the base. The red
charging light comes on. The handset
should come pre-registered to the base
station as 1 and this is shown in the top
right corner of the display.
The battery symbol is also shown.
It flashes during charging. Once the
handset is fully charged, the display
shows a full battery symbol.
To keep your battery in the best
condition, leave the handset off the
base station for a few hours at a time
(after the initial 16 hour charge).
After charging your Synergy handset
for the first time, subsequent charging
time for the battery is approximately
4-5 hours. Battery and case may
become warm during charging.
This is normal and not dangerous.
SETTING UP
Before you use your Synergy 2110 for
the first time, it is important to have
the handset battery fully charged. We
recommend that you leave the Synergy
2110 on charge for at least 16 hours.
Battery performance
Under ideal conditions, the handset
battery should give about 6 hours
talktime or 100 hours standby on a
single charge.
Please note, however, that a new
Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) battery does
not reach its full capacity until it has
been in normal use for several days.
Fully discharging the batteries at
least once a week will help them to
last as long as possible. However,
the charge capacity of rechargeable
batteries will reduce with time as
they wear out, so reducing the
talk/standby time of the handset.
Eventually they will need to be
replaced.

chargeable service.

Pre-set PINs
Your Synergy 2110 comes with a

use to perform various functions on
your phone.
When you enter your base station
PIN, the display will not show it for
security reasons.
