Features
• Cordless phones such as this one
require AC power to operate. When the
power is off, you cannot make or receive
calls using your phone. 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.
• When AC power is lost, the phone loses
the security access-protection code
connection between the base and the
handset. When power is restored, put
the handset on the base briefly to
restore this connection so you can use
the handset.
• 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.
ˆ Installation
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone’s base on a desk or
table, or mount it on a standard wall plate or
directly on a wall. Select a location that is:
• near an accessible AC outlet
Note: The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate
jack).
• near a telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
On a Desk Top
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors
Follow these steps to place the base on a
desk, shelf, or table.
1. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on
the back of the base.
• away from other cordless phones
The base’s location affects the handset’s
range. If you have a choice of several
locations, try each to see which provides the
best performance.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V DC
and delivers at least 210 mA.
Its center tip must be set to positive and
its plug must fit the phone's DC IN 9V
jack. The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications
could damage the phone or the adapter.
!
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
phone before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you
disconnect it from the phone.
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. You must use compatible modular jacks
that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.
2. Plug the modular cord’s other end into a
modular phone line jack.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of
the base.
4. Route the adapter’s cord through the
strain relief slot on the base.
5. Plug the adapter into a standard AC
outlet.
6. Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical
position.
On a Wall Plate
1. Plug one end of the supplied short
modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on
the back of the base.
2. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of
the base.
Installation
7
3. Route the adapter and modular cords
through the grooves on the bottom of
the base.
6. Plug the modular cord’s other end into
the phone jack, and plug the adapter
into a standard AC outlet.
4. Plug the short modular cord into the wall
plate jack, then align the base’s keyhole
slots with the wall plate studs and slide
the base down to secure it.
CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
5. Plug the adapter into a standard AC
outlet.
The phone comes with a rechargeable
nickel-cadmium battery pack in the handset,
but not connected. Before using your phone,
you must connect the battery pack, then
charge it for about 24 hours.
6. Push up on the handset holder, then lift
and remove it. Turn it over and rotate it
so that the oval-shaped indention is at
the bottom, then slide it down into its
slot. Snap it back into place so that it
holds the handset.
On a Wall
To mount the phone directly on a wall, you
need two screws (not supplied) with heads
that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of
the base.
1. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm)
apart. Then thread a screw into each
hole, letting the heads extend about 1/8
inch (3 mm) from the wall.
2. Plug one end of the supplied long
modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on
the back of the base.
3. Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel
plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back of
the base.
4. Route the adapter and modular cords
through the grooves on the bottom of
the base.
5. Align the base’s keyhole slots with the
mounting screws and slide the base
downward to secure it.
8
1. Press down and slide off the battery
compartment cover.
2. Lift the battery pack out of the
compartment.
3. Plug the battery pack’s connector into
the socket in the compartment (the
connector fits only one way), then place
the battery pack in the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset either faceup or facedown on the
base. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the
base lights and JejWb0&& appears on the
handset display.
Recharge the battery pack when Bem 8Wjj[ho
flashes on the display.
Important: Be sure the battery pack is
properly connected before you try to charge
it. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights
when the handset is on the base, even if the
battery pack is not connected.
Notes:
• 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 when you press
TALK. Return the handset to the base for
Installation
about 5 seconds to reset the security
access-protection code.
• If the base loses power for about an
hour while the handset is away from it,
the security access-protection code
might be lost. To reset the code, return
the handset to the base for about 5
seconds.
The handset does lose its security
access-protection code if the battery
pack is completely discharged. Place
the handset on the base to recharge the
battery pack and reset the code.
• Using a pencil eraser, clean the
charging contacts on the handset and
base about once a month.
• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, the handset beeps every 3
seconds and Bem 8Wjj[ho flashes. When
this happens, you cannot make a call
until you recharge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery by keeping the handset off the
base until Bem 8Wjj[ho flashes on the
display. Otherwise, the battery pack
loses its ability to fully recharge.
• If the display is blank and the phone
does not work, recharge the battery
pack. (The battery power might be too
low to light the display.)
• If you are not going to use your phone
for an extended period, disconnect the
battery pack. This increases the battery
pack’s usable life.
• The supplied battery pack should last for
about a year. If the battery pack does
not hold a charge for more than 2 hours
after an overnight charge, replace it with
a new 3.6-volt, 600 mAh battery pack
with a connector that fits the socket in
the battery compartment. You can order
a replacement battery pack through your
local RadioShack store. Install the new
battery pack and charge it for about 24
hours.
Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack
promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it.
See “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 4
for additional information on proper battery
handling.
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local
RadioShack for assistance.
Important: The EPA certified
RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal
on the nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd)
battery indicates RadioShack
is voluntarily participating in an
industry program to collect and recycle these
batteries at the end of their useful life, when
taken out of service in the United States or
Canada. The RBRC program provides a
convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cd
batteries into the trash or the municipal
waste stream, which may be illegal in your
area. Please call 1-800-THE-SHACK (1800-843-7422) for information on Ni-Cd
battery recycling and disposal bans/

ˆ Caller ID Operation
If you subscribe to Caller ID service from
your phone company, the phone company
sends information about the call, as well as
the time and date, between the first and
second rings of every call you receive. The
phone displays this information after the
second ring, and it stores up to 30 Caller ID
records for later review. It also shows if the
caller information is unavailable or if the
name and number were blocked by the caller
(see “Caller ID Messages”).
Where Caller ID is offered, one or more
options are generally available:
If you subscribe to Call Waiting with Caller
ID, you hear a tone through the handset
when a call comes in, then the Caller ID
record appears.
If the handset is face-up on the base, it
shows the number of new and total Caller ID
records and lets you view the display for any
new records.
If the phone’s Caller ID memory becomes
full, any new call replaces the oldest call’s
record.

handset and press CALL ID. The number of
new Caller ID records, if any, and the total
number of records appears. Repeatedly

ˆ Troubleshooting
We do not expect you to have any problems with your phone, but if you do, these suggestions
might help.
Problem
The phone does not
work or works poorly.
Suggestions
Be sure the base’s phone line cord and AC adapter are correctly and securely
connected.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset is connected and charged.
Return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the security
access-protection code.
The display flashes
slowly when the handset is faceup on the
base.
Make sure the battery pack in the handset is properly connected.
The handset stops
working or works
poorly during a call.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully vertical position.
Be sure the handset’s battery pack is charged. (If the battery pack power is too
low, the handset cannot display Bem 8Wjj[ho.)
Low volume or
unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on the same line. Hang up the other
phone.
Your conversation is
difficult to hear due to
dropout or muting.
Keep the handset away from computers, remote control toys, wireless microphones, alarm systems, intercoms, room monitors, fluorescent lights, and electrical appliances.
Move to another location or turn off the source of interference.
Press CH to change the channel.
Hang up and redial the number.
The phone cannot be
operated at a useful
distance from the base
because the signal
becomes weak or
noisy (handset’s range
has decreased).
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
The handset battery
pack does not charge.
Check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If they are dirty, clean
them with a pencil eraser.
Be sure neither the handset’s nor base’s antenna is touching a metal surface.
Return the handset to the base and recharge the battery pack.
Be sure the battery pack is connected correctly.
Be sure the handset is properly seated on the base.

Troubleshooting
Problem
The handset does not
ring or receive a page.
Suggestions
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Be sure the battery pack in the handset is connected and charged.
Move the base away from other electrical devices.
You have an incoming
call, but do not receive
any Caller ID information.
Let the phone ring twice before you answer so the system has time to record
the Caller ID information.
Check that the system is correctly and securely connected.
Check with your phone company to verify that your Caller ID service is active.
If you still have problems, disconnect the phone. If other phones on the same line work
properly, the fault is in this phone or its installation. If you cannot find the problem, take the
phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
CARE
Keep the phone dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry
immediately. Use and store the phone only in
normal temperature environments. Handle
the phone carefully; do not drop it. Keep the
phone away from dust and dirt, and wipe it
with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the telephone’s
internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate its warranty
and void your FCC authorization to operate
it. If your telephone 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 telephone until you
have resolved the problem.
