it will transfer back to its point of origin. At this time, if the call is not picked up, it
will be disconnected after 20 seconds.

CALL TYPES
CALL WAITING
Your telephone lets you take advantage of the Call Waiting service supplied by Telstra.
With the call waiting service activated do the following:
# When a call comes in while you are on the phone, you will hear the Call Waiting
beeps.
# Press the [CALL WAITING] button on the handset. The first caller is put on hold and
you can talk to the second caller.
# To toggle between callers, simply press the [CALL WAITING] button again.
# Press the [TALK] button when you are finished.
SYSTEM EXPANSION
The FF894-2 forms the basis of a multi-handset telephone system which will allow you
to:
# Purchase and use an additional 2 handsets for use with the same base unit (4 handsets
in total).
ADDITIONAL HANDSETS
If an additional handset is added to the system, the batteries must be charged for 14 hours
without interruption.
The registration gives each handset a specific identity number, 1 to 4. This number is used
for the transfer of calls only.

TROUBLESHOOTING
AUDIOLINE FF894-2
TROUBLESHOOTING
All cordless telephones are radio transmitters and receivers and as such are subject to
interference from a wide range of sources.
Re-siting of the base unit can improve reception substantially.
Electronic equipment like TV’s, computers, etc., can emit strong electro magnetic fields
which can affect the radio signals. Try not to locate your FF894-2 next to this type of
equipment and ensure that the power and line cords are separated from other electrical
units.
THE TELEPHONE DOES NOT WORK
P Is the power adaptor connected correctly?.
P Is the line cord connected correctly?
P Are the batteries in the handset charged?
P Connect a different telephone to the same wall socket. If the other telephone does not
work, contact your Network operator.
THE BASE UNIT DOES NOT RING
P Check that the ringer is programmed on (see page 9).
P Does the total REN of equipment connected to your line exceed 3? If it does,
disconnect other equipment until 3 is achieved (see page 27).

TROUBLESHOOTING
THE HANDSET WILL NOT CONNECT WITH AN INCOMING CALL WHEN THE
BASE UNIT RINGS

the handset which can take a few seconds. It is important that a call is not
picked-up on the handset until the handset rings.
THE HANDSET DOES NOT RING
P Is the ringer programmed Off? (see page 9).
MEMORY DIALLING DOES NOT WORK
P Store a new number and try again (see page 8).
