Important Notes:
• Cordless phones such as this one
require AC power to operate. When
the AC power is off, you cannot dial
out or receive incoming calls using
your ET-553/ET-554. To be safe,
you should also have a phone that
does not need AC power to operate
(not a cordless phone) so you can
still make and receive calls if there is
an AC power failure.
• Your phone operates on standard
radio frequencies as allocated by
the FCC. It is possible for other
radio units operating nearby on similar frequencies to unintentionally
intercept your conversation or cause
interference. This possible lack of
privacy can occur with any cordless
phone.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your ET-553/ET-554
to conform to federal regulations, and
you can connect it to most telephone
lines. However, each device, such as a
telephone or answering machine that
you connect to the telephone line, draws
power from the telephone line. We refer
to this power draw as the device’s ringer
equivalence number, or REN. The REN
is shown on the bottom of the base.
If you use more than one phone or other
device on the line, add up all the RENs.
If the total is more than five, your phones
might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN
of three might impair ringer operation. If
ringer operation is impaired, remove a
device from the line.
4
FCC STATEMENT
This telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC Registration Number
and the REN to your phone company.
These numbers are located on the bottom panel of the base.
Note: You must not connect your phone
to any of the following:
• Coin-operated systems
• Party-line systems
• Most electronic key phone systems

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The ET-553/ET-554 comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmium battery pack
in the handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery then charge it for about
24 hours. A fully charged battery provides 7 days of standby power or 7
hours of continuous talk time.
1. Press down and slide off the handset’s battery compartment cover in
the direction of the arrow.
2. Unfasten the plastic retainer strap
and lift the battery pack out of the
compartment. Plug the battery
pack’s connector into the socket in
the compartment. The connector fits
only one way.
3. Replace the battery pack inside the
compartment and refasten the
retainer strap.
43-1053.fm Page 11 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, simply place
the handset on the base. The CHARGE/
IN USE indicator on the base lights.
• Also, check the charging contacts
on the handset and the base. If the
contacts are dirty or tarnished (or
about once a month), clean them
with a pencil eraser.
Recharge the battery when the TALK/
BATT LOW indicator on the handset
flashes.
• If the TALK/BATT LOW indicator
does not light, but the phone does
not work, recharge the battery. (The
battery charge might be too low to
light the indicator).
• If the CHARGE/IN USE indicator
does not light when you place the
handset on the base, be sure the
battery pack and AC adapter are
correctly and securely connected.
• If the battery pack gets weak during
a call, the handset sounds a beep
every 30 seconds, and the TALK/
BATT LOW indicator flashes every 3
seconds. If this happens, you cannot make another call on the phone
until you recharge the battery.
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery
pack, the phone might not work and
you might hear an error tone. If this
happens, return the handset to the
base for about 5 seconds.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery by keeping the handset
off the base until the TALK/BATT
LOW indicator lights. Otherwise, the
battery loses its ability to fully
recharge.
Notes:
• Return the handset to the cradle
nightly to charge the battery.
11
43-1053.fm Page 12 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
• If the battery pack gets completely
discharged or the base loses power
while the handset is away from it,
the security access-protection code
needs to be reset. To reset the security code, place the handset on the
base. If it was the handset that lost
power, leave the handset on the
base to charge the battery pack.
• The supplied battery pack should
last for about a year. When the battery pack loses its ability to fully
recharge, order a replacement battery
pack
from
your
local
RadioShack store. (See “Replacing
the Battery Pack” on Page 21.
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
Set PULSE • TONE on the back of the
base for the type of service you have. If
you are not sure which type you have,
do this test.
Note: If your phone system requires
that you dial an access code (9, for
example) before you dial an outside
number, do not press the access
code either.
If the dial tone stops, you have
touch-tone service. Leave PULSE •
TONE set to TONE.
If the dial tone continues, you have
pulse service. Set PULSE • TONE to
PULSE.
SETTING THE RINGER
TONE AND VOLUME
You can select one of four different ringer tone/volume settings when the phone
is not in use.
1. Lift the handset. If you hear a dial

Move closer to the base and try again.
43-1053.fm Page 15 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
USING REDIAL
REDIAL lets you quickly dial the last num-
ber dialed. When you hear a dial tone,
simply press REDIAL.
For example, if you have call waiting,
press FLASH to answer an incoming call
without disconnecting the current call.
Press FLASH again to return to the first
call.
Note: If you do not have any special

disconnect the current call.
USING TONE SERVICES
ON A PULSE LINE
Notes:
• The redial memory holds up to 32
digits, so you can redial long-distance as well as local numbers.
• The redial memory also holds pause
entries. (See “Entering a Pause” on
Page 17.)
• The redial memory does not store a
flash entry or any digits you press
after FLASH (see “Using Flash”).
USING FLASH
Some special services, such as bank-byphone, require tone signals. If you have
pulse service, you can still use these
special tone services by following these
steps.
1. Be sure PULSE • TONE is set to
PULSE .
2. Lift the handset from the cradle or
press TALK.
3. Dial the service’s main number.
4. When the service answers, press
TONE . Any additional numbers you
dial are sent as tone signals.
FLASH performs the electronic equivalent of a switchhook operation for special
services, such as Call Waiting.
15
43-1053.fm Page 16 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
5. After you complete the call, return
the handset to the cradle or press
TALK . The phone automatically
resets to the pulse mode.
PAGING
To page the person who has the handset
or to locate the handset when the phone
is not in use, hold down PAGE on the
base for at least 2 seconds. The handset
beeps for 1 minute.
Storing a Number in Memory
Note: An error tone sounds and the
phone exits the storing mode if you wait
more than 20 seconds between each key
press.
1. Lift the handset. If you hear a dial
tone, press TALK to turn it off.
2. Press MEM. The TALK/BATT LOW
indicator blinks.
3. Enter the number and any TONE
and PAUSE entries. (See “Entering a
Pause” on Page 17).
For a brief page, press and release
PAGE/FIND on the base. The handset
beeps five times. To stop it from beeping
sooner, press TALK.
MEMORY DIALING
You can store up to 10 numbers in memory, then dial a stored number by pressing a one-digit memory location number.
Each number you store can be up to 16
digits long.
16
Note: Each TONE or PAUSE entry
uses one digit of memory.
4. Press MEM, then enter the memory
location number (0–9). A single tone
sounds to indicate that the number
is stored.
Note: If you make an entry error,
such as entering more than 16 digits, five quick beeps sound, the
TALK/BATT LOW indicator stops
flashing, and the number is not
stored. Start again from Step 2.
43-1053.fm Page 17 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
5. For each stored number, write the
person’s or company’s name next to
the appropriate location number on
the supplied memory directory
sticker. (Use a pencil in case you
want to change the number later.)
Then attach the sticker to the
phone.
Dialing a Memory Number
To dial a number stored in memory, lift
the handset from the cradle or press
TALK. When you hear a dial tone, press
MEM and enter the memory location
number for the number you want to dial.
Note: If you select an empty memory location, the phone beeps 5 times. Try
again.
Chain-Dialing Service Numbers
For quick recall of numbers for special
services (such as alternate long distance
or bank by phone), store each group of
numbers (such as codes or account
numbers) in its own memory location.
To replace a stored number, simply store
a new number in its place. Or, just skip
Step 3.
Entering a Pause
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 enter a pause, press PAUSE. Each
press enters a 2-second pause. For a
longer pause, press PAUSE additional
times.
To use the stored special service information, dial the service’s main number
first. Then, at the appropriate place in the
call, press MEM and the number for the
location where the additional information
is stored.
Testing Stored Emergency
Numbers
If you store an emergency service’s
number (police department, fire department, ambulance) and you choose 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-553/ET-554 25-Channel Cordless Telephone with 10-Number
Memory is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your cordless telephone so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the telephone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the telephone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the telephone to work improperly.
Use and store the telephone only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the telephone away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the telephone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the telephone.
Modifying or tampering with the telephone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your telephone’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your phone is not performing as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the phone lines, the phone
company might ask you to disconnect your phone until you have resolved the problem.

REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 10, the battery pack should last
about one year. If the battery pack will
not hold a charge for more than 2 hours
after an overnight charge, replace the
battery pack with a new 3.6 V, 300 mAh
battery pack with a connector that fits the
socket in the battery pack compartment.
You can order a replacement battery
pack through your local RadioShack
store.
Install the new battery pack as described below, then charge the battery.
(See “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on Page 10).
Note: To avoid losing phone numbers
stored in memory, try to install and begin
charging the new battery pack within 1
minute.
1. Press down and slide off the handset’s battery pack compartment
cover downward.
2. Unfasten the plastic retainer strap
and lift the battery pack out of the
compartment, then gently pull on the
battery pack connector to disconnect it.
3. Insert the new battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment, place the battery pack into
the compartment, and refasten the
retainer strap.
4. Replace the cover.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
pack of the same size and type.
• Do not dispose of the battery pack in
a fire because it might explode.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack.
• Be careful not to short the battery
pack by touching it with conducting
materials, such as rings, bracelets,
and keys. The battery pack or conductor might overheat and burn.
If you have trouble replacing the battery,
take the phone to your local RadioShack
store for assistance.
Important: This product contains a rechargeable nickel cadmium battery
pack. At the end of the battery’s useful
life, it must be recycled or disposed of
properly. Contact your local, county, or
state hazardous waste management authorities for information on recycling or
disposal programs in your area. Some
options that might be available are: municipal curb-side collection, drop-off boxes at retailers such as your local
RadioShack store, recycling collection
centers, and mail-back programs.

43-1053.fm Page 22 Tuesday, August 17, 1999 1:26 PM
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.
Your phone might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your
phone is causing the interference, turn
off your phone. If the interference goes
away, your phone is causing the interference.
Try to eliminate the interference by:
• Moving your phone away from the
receiver
• Connecting your phone to an AC
outlet that is on a different electrical
circuit from the receiver
• Contacting your local RadioShack
store for help
22
If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your phone.
Some cordless phones operate at frequencies that might cause interference
to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize
or prevent such interference, the base of
the cordless phone should not be placed
near or on top of a TV or VCR.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in lightning protection 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
you unplug your phone during storms to
reduce the possibility of damage.
