INSTALLATION
CHOOSING A LOCATION
MOUNTING THE PHONE
You can use your telephone as a desk
phone, mount it on a standard wall plate,
or mount it directly on a wall. Select a location that is near the telephone line
jack(s) and an easily accessible AC outlet
On a Desktop
To take full advantage of many of the
ET-469’s features (like conference calling) you must have two telephone lines
with separate phone numbers. If you
have only one phone line, you can order
a second line from your local phone
company.
You can use a two-line jack (RJ14C or
RJ14W for a wall plate) that contains
both lines, or you can use a separate
single-line jack (RJ11C) for each line.
Notes:
• The line that connects the phone
jack to the telephone company wiring must be twisted-pair cable. Otherwise, you might experience
interference (crosstalk) between the
two phone lines.
• Your telephone connects directly to
a modular telephone line jack. If
your telephone wiring does not have
a modular jack, you can update the
wiring yourself using jacks and
adapters available at your local
RadioShack store, or have the telephone company update the wiring
for you.
1. Remove the mounting bracket by
holding in the tab on the right side of
the bracket and gently pulling the
bracket away from the base.
2. If you have a single two-line phone
jack, plug one end of the supplied
two-line long modular cord into L1 or
L1/L2 on the back of the phone’s
base.
L1/L2
Note: If you connect the phone to a
two-line phone jack with a two-line
cord, do not connect another modular cord to the L2 jack. Otherwise,
the phone will not operate properly.

43-469.fm Page 6 Tuesday, January 19, 1999 9:48 AM
If you have two separate one-line
modular jacks, plug one end of the
supplied two-line long modular cord
into L1 or L1/L2 and plug the supplied one-line long modular cord into
L2.
4. Route the adapter’s cord through
the strain relief slot on the back of
the phone.

3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s
barrel plug into the DC 9V jack on

snap the large tab of the bracket into
the large slot at the upper right.
DC 9V
6. Connect the other end(s) of the
phone cord(s) to the phone line
jack(s).
Caution: You must use a
Class 2 power source that
supplies 9 volts DC and
delivers at least 150 mA. Its center
tip must be set to negative and its
plug must fit the TAD-469's DC 9V
jack. The supplied adapter meets
these specifications. Using an
adapter that does not meet these
specifications could damage the
TAD-469 or the adapter.

stored number at the press of a few buttons. Each stored number can be up to
24 digits.
Notes:
• Each pause entry counts as one
memory digit.
• If you make a mistake while
entering the number, start again
at Step 1.
4. Press SAVE.
Storing a Number in Memory
Each of the phone's 10 memory locations can hold up to 2 phone numbers;
one each in an upper and lower memory
location.
5. Select the location where you want
to store the number.
• For an upper memory location,
press a memory number button.
Follow these steps to store a number in

43-469.fm Page 17 Tuesday, January 19, 1999 9:48 AM
Notes:
• To change a number in memory,
store a new one in its place.
• To erase a number from memory, repeat all except Step 2, selecting the
location you want to erase in Step 4.
Storing a Pause in Memory
In some telephone systems, you must
dial an access code (9, for example) and
wait for a second dial tone before you
can dial an outside number. You can
store the access code with the phone
number. However, you should also store
a pause after the access code to allow
the outside line time to connect.
To add one or more 2-second pauses to
a phone number you are storing in
memory, press REDIAL at each point
where a pause is needed.
Note: Each pause entry counts as one
memory digit in the stored number.

the handset or press HEADSET/SPEAKER, then:
• To dial a number stored in upper
memory, press the desired memory
location number.

number that does not have a phone
number stored in it, press HEADSET/
SPEAKER again then press the correct
memory location number.
Chain Dialing Service Numbers
You can make a call using more than
one of the two-line speakerphone's
memory locations. This is called chain
dialing. Chain dialing is useful for dialing special services such as alternate
long distance or bank-by-phone.
Testing Stored Emergency
Numbers
If you store an emergency service’s
number (police and fire departments,
ambulance) and you want to test the
stored number, make the test call during the late evening or early morning
hours to avoid peak demand periods.
Also, remain on the line to explain the
reason for your call.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack ET-469 Two-Line Speakerphone is an example of superior
design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for
your ET-469 so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the ET-469 dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the ET-469 only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic
devices and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the ET-469 away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Handle the ET-469 gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage
circuit boards and cases and can cause the ET-469 to work improperly.
Wipe the ET-469 with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the ET-469.
Modifying or tampering with the ET-469’s internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your ET-469 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 ET-469 until you
have resolved the problem.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your phone
causes problems on the phone line, the
phone company can temporarily discontinue 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 this telephone. The telephone company notifies you of these
changes in advance, so you can take
the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in protection
circuits to reduce the risk of damage
from surges in telephone line and power
line current. These protection circuits
meet or exceed the FCC requirements.
However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your
telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug your phone during
storms to reduce the possibility of damage.

THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED
IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES CONTAINED
HEREIN. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, RadioShack SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY TO CUSTOMER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY

Some states do not allow the limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.

price. All replaced parts and products, and products on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of

original warranty period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the
expiration of the warranty period.
This warranty does not cover: (a) damage or failure caused by or attributable to acts of God, abuse,
accident, misuse, improper or abnormal usage, failure to follow instructions, improper installation or
maintenance, alteration, lightning or other incidence of excess voltage or current; (b) any repairs
other than those provided by a RadioShack Authorized Service Facility; (c) consumables such as
fuses or batteries; (d) cosmetic damage; (e) transportation, shipping or insurance costs; or (f) costs
