TAD-795
Digital Telephone Answering System
with Four Mailboxes
43-795.fm Page 2 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
FEATURES
Your TAD-795 Digital Telephone Answering System is a sophisticated, fully
digital message center that records
messages for up to four different users.
The caller can choose to leave a message for a specific person or department.
The TAD (telephone answering device)
stores all messages on a computer chip.
This gives you advanced capabilities
over tape-based answering machines.
For example, you can delete an individual message while saving the rest. Because your TAD is fully digital, there are
no tapes to bother with and no tape
mechanisms to wear out.
Two-Way Recording — lets you record
both sides of your phone conversation.
Memo Recording — lets you leave
messages for yourself or others in your
home or office.
Dual Outgoing Messages — you can
record two outgoing messages of up to
about 32 seconds each: one for when
you want callers to leave a message,
the other for when you want to play an
announcement without recording callers’
messages.
Adjustable Ring Number — lets you
set the TAD to answer after two, four, or
seven rings.
The TAD-795 has these features:
Four User Mailboxes — let you store
and play back messages (up to 60 seconds each) for up to four different users.
High Capacity — lets you record up to
48 minutes of messages and memos.
Voice Date/Time Stamp — records the
day and time each message was recorded.
Call Breakthrough (CBT) with Programmable Code — alerts you to an
important call when the caller enters a
preset code during the outgoing message.
Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary toll charges when you call by longdistance to check your messages.
Remote Operation — lets you use a
touch-tone phone (or rotary phone and
pocket tone dialer) to operate the TAD
while you are away from your home or
office.
Phone Pick-Up Detection — stops recording when you pick up any phone on
the same line as the TAD.
Call Screening — lets you listen as a
caller leaves a message so you can decide whether or not to answer the call.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION
Your TAD-795 conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most
telephone lines. However, each device
that you connect to the phone line draws
power from the line. We refer to this
power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is
shown on the label on the bottom of your
TAD.
If you are using more than one device
on the line, add up all the RENs. If the
total is more than five, your phone might
not ring and your TAD might not answer.
In rural areas, a total REN of three might
impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. You must, upon request, provide
the FCC registration number and the
REN to your phone company. Both numbers appear on the bottom of your TAD.
Note: You must not connect your TAD
to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
This device compiles with Part 15 of
FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the
following two conditions:
• This device may not cause harmful
interference.
• This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired
operation.

PREPARATION
Select a location for the TAD that is near
a modular telephone line jack and an AC
outlet, and is not in the way of normal
activities.
CONNECTING TO THE
TELEPHONE LINE
CONNECTING THE AC
ADAPTER
Caution: The supplied AC adapter was
designed specifically for your TAD-795.
Use only the supplied adapter.
AC 9V
Notes:
• Your TAD connects directly to a
modular telephone line jack. If your
phone line jack is not a modular
jack, you can update the wiring
yourself, using jacks and adapters
available at your local RadioShack
store. Or, you can let the phone
company update the wiring for you.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C.
Follow these steps to connect your TAD
to the telephone line and phone.
PHONE
Jack
LINE
Jack
1. Unplug the telephone’s modular
cord from the modular phone line
jack and plug it into the PHONE jack
on the back of the TAD.
2. Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the LINE jack on the
back of the TAD.
3. Plug the cord’s other end into a
modular phone line jack.
6
1. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the AC 9V jack on
the back of the TAD.
2. Plug the other end of the adapter
into a standard AC outlet.
When you first connect power, the TAD
announces “Please wait,” then runs a
self-test for about 1 minute. After the
test, the TAD beeps and 0 appears in
the message counter window.
Note: The TAD’s message counter window usually shows the number of messages. That number alternates with
other displays to tell you the status of
the TAD.
• A1 appears if you have not recorded announcement (outgoing message) 1.
• A2 appears if you have not recorded announcement 2.
• Lo appears if a backup battery is
weak or missing.
43-795.fm Page 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
INSTALLING A BACKUP
BATTERY
Replace the battery when Lo appears.
Cautions:
If AC power fails or you unplug the TAD,
a 9V backup battery (not supplied)
saves the message groups, message
counts, and the settings for the day,
time, and security code. We recommend
you use an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-553.
• Before you replace the battery, be
sure the TAD is properly connected
to AC power. Otherwise, you might
lose any stored information.
Caution: Always use a fresh battery of
the required size and recommended
type.
• Dispose of the old battery promptly
and properly. Do not burn or bury it.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove
the screw on the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.
• Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
SETTING THE DAY AND
TIME
To avoid losing the day and time settings
if AC power fails, we recommend you install a backup battery before you set the
day and time (see “Installing a Backup
Battery”).
Follow these steps so the TAD can
record the correct day and time each
message and memo is recorded.
2. Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to
the battery connector and place the
battery into the compartment.
Note: If you do not complete each step
within 8 seconds, the TAD sounds four
beeps and exits setup. Start again at
Step 1.
3. Replace the cover and secure it with
the screw.
7
43-795.fm Page 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
1. Hold down TIME SET until a number
from 1–7 (the day of the week) appears and the TAD announces the
currently set day.
2. To change the day of the week, repeatedly press REPEAT to move
backward or SKIP to move forward
until the TAD announces the desired
day of the week.
3. Press TIME SET. The TAD announces the preset hour.
4. To change the hour, repeatedly
press REPEAT or SKIP.
5. Press TIME SET. The TAD announces the preset minute.
6. To change the minutes, repeatedly
press REPEAT or SKIP.
7. Press TIME SET to confirm the settings. CL appears, then the TAD
beeps and announces the day and
time.
To check the current day/time at any
time, press TIME SET.
8
RECORDING THE
OUTGOING MESSAGES
Before the TAD-795 can answer calls
and record messages, you must record
an outgoing message (OGM). The TAD
lets you record two separate messages
of up to 32 seconds each, and it operates differently based on which message you select.
• OGM 1 – After playing your outgoing message, the TAD records the
caller’s message.
• OGM 2 (announce-only) – The TAD
plays your outgoing message, but
does not record a message.
If you plan to use the TAD’s
announce-only feature, OGM 2
should clearly state that the caller
cannot leave a message.
The TAD-795 lets you store messages
for up to four different users. It normally
records messages in mailbox 1, but a
caller can choose a different mailbox by
pressing # and its number (1–4) after the
outgoing message. Be sure your outgoing message tells the caller how to
record a message for the desired mailbox.
Hint: Do not tell callers that you are out
of town or not home. Instead, say that
you cannot come to the phone right now.
Follow these steps to record your outgoing message.
43-795.fm Page 9 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
1. To record the OGM 1 (or OGM 2)
message, hold down OGM 1 (or
OGM 2) until the TAD beeps and the
timer starts counting.
SETTING THE NUMBER
OF RINGS
Set the ring select switch to 2, 4, 7,or TS
to set how long the TAD waits before it
answers a call (2 rings, 4 rings, 7 rings
or toll-saver).
Note: As soon as the TAD beeps,
release OGM 1 (or OGM 2) quickly.
Otherwise, the TAD records a “pop”
sound at the beginning of the outgoing message.
2. Speak your message from about 8
inches from the front of the TAD.
3. When you finish, press STOP. The
TAD beeps and plays back the outgoing message.
If you plan to check your messages by
long distance, set the ring select switch
to TS (see “Using the Toll-Saver” on
Page 15).
Checking the Outgoing
Messages
To check an outgoing message, press
its button (OGM 1 or OGM 2). You see
the announcement number and the
message plays.
If there is no announcement recorded,
you hear “You have no announcement
one” (or “two”) when you press its button.

43-795.fm Page 10 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
BASIC OPERATION
SETTING THE TAD TO
ANSWER CALLS
INCOMING MESSAGE
RECORDING
After you have recorded an outgoing
message, you can set the TAD to answer calls.
When the TAD is set to answer calls using OGM 1, it plays the outgoing message, then beeps. The caller can then
record a message up to 60 seconds
long.
To set the TAD to answer calls, press
ANSWER . The announcement number
(A1 or A2) appears, then the TAD plays
the outgoing message and shows the
number of recorded messages. The ANSWER indicator lights to show that the
TAD is ready to answer calls.
ANSWER
Indicator
To set the TAD to record callers’ messages, press OGM 1. The TAD says “Answer on” and plays OGM 1.
To set the TAD to play an outgoing message but not let callers leave a message, press OGM 2. The TAD says
“Announce only” and plays OGM 2. Ao
(announce only) and the number of recorded messages alternately appear.
The TAD normally records messages in
mailbox 1, but callers can record to a
specific mailbox by pressing # and its
number (1–4) after the outgoing message.
When a recording reaches 55 seconds,
the TAD beeps to notify the caller that
time will soon be up. At 60 seconds, the
TAD sounds a long beep and four short
beeps, says “Thank you for your call,”
and hangs up.
The TAD stops recording and resets to
answer the next call when:
• the caller hangs up
• the maximum message length is
reached
• there are more than 8 seconds of silence
• you pick up any phone on the same
line as the TAD
To set the TAD to not answer calls,
press ANSWER . The TAD announces
“Answer off” and beeps. The ANSWER
indicator turns off.
10
If the TAD’s memory is full, FL and the
number of recorded messages alternately appear. It answers calls after 3
rings and plays the announce-only message (OGM 2). If no OGM 2 is recorded,
the TAD says “Memory is full, please call
later.”
43-795.fm Page 11 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
Notes:
• The maximum recording capacity is
48 minutes or 59 messages.
• Many local phone companies use
calling party control (CPC) to signal
that the caller has hung up. Your
TAD recognizes a CPC signal and
releases the line. If the TAD records
phone company messages or dial
tones, your local phone company
probably does not use CPC.
SCREENING CALLS
To screen calls, let the TAD answer
them, then listen to the caller’s message
through the TAD’s speaker. To adjust the
volume, slide VOLUME on the right side
of the TAD.
If you decide to answer the call, pick up
any phone on the same phone line as
the TAD. The TAD stops recording and
resets to answer the next call.
If you do not want to take the call, simply
let the TAD finish recording the caller’s
message.
Note: If you answer the phone just as
the TAD answers, the TAD might not
stop playing the outgoing message. If
this happens, press STOP on the TAD.
PLAYING MESSAGES
The TAD’s message counter window
shows the total number of messages,
both old and new. If there are new messages, the mailbox indicators flash to let
you know which mailboxes have new
messages.
Note: The TAD’s message counter window might also alternately show other
information to tell you the status of the
TAD.
• A1 appears if you have not recorded announcement (outgoing message) 1.
• A2 appears if you have not recorded announcement 2.
• Lo appears if a backup battery is
weak or missing.
To play all messages in a mailbox, press
that mailbox’s button ( 1–4). The TAD announces the number of messages recorded in the selected mailbox, each
message number, and the day and time
the message was recorded, and then
plays the message.
To play only new messages, hold down
the desired mailbox button for 2 seconds. The TAD tells you how many new
messages you have in that mailbox and
plays them.
11
43-795.fm Page 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
After all messages play, the TAD says,
“End of messages.”
To replay a message during playback,
press REPEAT. The current message
starts again from the beginning.
To return to a previous message, hold
down REPEAT until you see the desired
message number.
To skip to the next message, press SKIP.
To pause during playback, press the selected mailbox button. PA (pause) appears. To resume playback, press the
mailbox button again within 60 seconds.
Otherwise, the TAD stops playback, announces “End of messages,” and displays the total number of messages.
To quickly play a message, hold down
SKIP. The playback speed increases, al-
lowing you to quickly scan a message or
move to any place within it. To resume
normal playback, release SKIP.
To stop playback at any time, press
STOP. The TAD beeps and resets to answer calls.
12
DELETING MESSAGES
To delete the current message during
playback, press DELETE. The TAD
beeps, then plays the next message.
To delete all messages in a mailbox after playback, hold down DELETE until
the TAD says “Erase messages” and
beeps. dL appears and the indicator
next to each mailbox button that has
“played” messages flashes. Press the
desired mailbox button. The TAD
sounds a long beep to confirm that all
messages in the selected mailbox are
deleted.
Note: The TAD does not delete unplayed messages. If you press DELETE
when you have unplayed messages, the
TAD sounds four beeps.
43-795.fm Page 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:07 AM
RECORDING A MEMO
A memo is a message you can record at
the TAD for yourself or others. You can
record memos of up to 60 seconds long
in any of the mailboxes.
Memos are stored with incoming messages, and are replayed the same way
(see “Playing Messages” on Page 11).

start again from Step 1.
3. The TAD automatically stops recording after 60 seconds, or you can
press STOP when you finish the
memo. The TAD beeps once, and
the message number indicator increases by one.
RECORDING A
CONVERSATION
You can record both sides of a conversation on any phone connected to the
same phone line as the TAD.
Note: It is illegal in some areas to record
a conversation without the consent of all
parties to the conversation, including the
phone company. Check the laws in your

office, you can use a touch-tone phone
or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
tone dialer to enter your remote operation security code and do any of the following:
• set the TAD to answer calls
• listen to your messages
• record a new announcement
• record a memo
• delete messages
USING REMOTE
COMMANDS
Follow these steps to operate the TAD
remotely.
1. Dial your phone number.
2. When the TAD answers, enter your
remote operation security code. The
TAD beeps once to confirm that you
entered the correct code.
Notes:
• monitor the room where the TAD is
located
• If you do not enter each digit of
the security code within 8 seconds, the TAD hangs up.
Note: You cannot remotely operate the
TAD from another phone on the same

your TAD-795 so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD-795 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the TAD-795 only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD-795 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Handle the TAD-795 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the TAD-795 to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and type. Batteries can
leak chemicals that damage your TAD-795’s electronic parts.
Wipe the TAD-795 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the TAD-795.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD-795’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your TAD-795’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your TAD-795 is not performing as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the
phone company can ask you to disconnect your TAD-795 until you have resolved the
problem.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your TAD causes problems on the phone line, the
phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the
phone company attempts to notify you in
advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you as
soon as possible and advises you of
your right to file a complaint with the
FCC.
Also, the phone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of your TAD. The phone company notifies you of these changes in
advance, so you can take steps to prevent interruption of your phone service.
LIGHTNING
Your TAD has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in phone and power line current.
These protection circuits meet or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line or power
lines can damage your TAD.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug your TAD during storms
to reduce the possibility of damage.
