TAD-1007
Multi-User Digital Telephone Answering System
with Day/Time Voice Stamp
43-747.fm Page 2 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:22 PM
FEATURES
Your Radio Shack TAD-1007 Multi-User
Digital Telephone Answering System
with Day/Time Voice Stamp is a sophisticated, fully digital message center that
groups recorded messages for up to four
different users. The caller can choose to
leave a message for a specific person or
department.
The TAD stores all messages on a computer chip — there are no tape mechanisms to wear out and no tapes to bother
with. This gives you capabilities that
tape-based answering machines don’t
have. For example, you can delete individual messages.
The TAD-1007’s 26-minute memory capacity lets you store more messages
than many other TADs. And, its unique,
space-saving design makes it ideal for
any office or nightstand. Your TAD’s remote control features let you retrieve
messages from almost any touch-tone
phone. With an optional pocket tone dialer, you can even use it from a rotary
phone.
Your TAD’s features include:
Four User Mailboxes — let you store
and play back messages for up to four
different users.
Voice Time/Day Stamp — announces
the time and day when each message
was recorded.
User-Selectable 3-Digit Remote Operation Security Code — helps prevent unauthorized remote operation.
Digital Outgoing Message — gives
you a clear outgoing message.
Memory Backup — protects messages
stored in memory in case of a power
failure.
Toll Saver — lets you set the TAD to
answer after two rings if there are new
messages or four rings if there are not.
This lets you hang up before the TAD
answers to avoid charges when you call
by long-distance to check your messages.
Room Monitor — lets you listen from a
remote phone to the room where you installed the TAD.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your TAD to conform
to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However,
each device you connect to the phone
line draws power from it. This power
draw is the device’s Ringer Equivalence
Number, or REN. The REN is shown on
the bottom of the TAD.
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 (or three in
rural areas), your phone(s) might not
ring and your TAD might not answer. If
ringer operation is impaired, remove one
of the devices from the line.
4
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 telephone company. Both
numbers are shown on the bottom of
the TAD.
Note: You must not connect the TAD to:
• Coin-operated systems
• Party-line systems
• Most electronic key telephone systems

INSTALLATION
CHOOSING A LOCATION
Select a location that is near a modular
telephone jack and an AC outlet.
Your TAD connects directly to a modular
telephone line jack. If your telephone
wiring does not have a modular jack, you
can update the wiring yourself or have
the telephone company update it for
you.
CONNECTING TO THE
TELEPHONE LINE
To connect the TAD to the phone line,
plug one end of the supplied telephone
cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back
of the TAD. Then plug the other end into
a modular phone jack.
• Radio Shack stores sell jacks and
adapters to convert older wiring
methods to modular wiring.
• The telephone company charges to
install the necessary jacks.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C.
6
You can also connect an extension telephone to the TEL SET jack on the back
of the TAD using a second telephone
cord (not supplied).
43-747.fm Page 7 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:22 PM
CONNECTING TO POWER
Insert the supplied adapter’s barrel plug
into the AC 9V jack on the back of the
TAD. Then plug the AC adapter’s other
end into a standard AC outlet.
INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERY
During an AC power failure, a 9-volt battery (such as Cat. No. 23-553, not supplied) provides backup power so the
TAD can maintain the correct time and
memory information. However, the TAD
cannot answer incoming calls and
record messages without AC power.
Follow these steps to install the battery.
Caution: Only use an adapter that supplies 9 volts AC, delivers at least 780
milliamps, and has a plug which properly
fits the TAD’s AC 9V jack. The supplied
AC adapter meets these specifications.
Using an adapter that does not meet
these specifications might damage the
TAD or the adapter.
1. Slide the battery compartment
cover (located on the bottom of the
TAD) in the direction of the arrow
and lift it off.
When you first connect power, _ _
flashes on the display while the TAD automatically runs a self-test. You cannot
operate the TAD during this test. When
the test is complete, the TAD beeps
once. Lo and 00 alternately flash on the
display until you install the backup battery.
7
43-747.fm Page 8 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:22 PM
2. Snap the battery’s terminals to the
connector inside the compartment.
Then place the battery inside.
USING RESET
If the TAD does not work, press RESET
on the back of the TAD to reset the answering machine.
Note: The outgoing message and all information stored in memory are deleted
when you press RESET.
3. Replace the cover
When Lo and the number of calls in
memory alternately flash on the display,
replace the battery. Be sure the AC
adapter’s cord is plugged in so you do
not lose the TAD’s stored information.

RECORDING THE
OUTGOING MESSAGE
“You have reached the Jones residence. We are unable to come to the
phone right now, but you may press: 1
to leave a message for John, 2 to leave
a message for Mary, 3 to leave a message for Susan, 4 to leave a message
for Helen, or you can wait until after the
beep to leave a message for John.

Follow these steps to record your outgoing announcement.
1. Press and hold down ANN. The
TAD beeps.
Before you can set the TAD to answer
calls, you must record the outgoing message (OGM) the caller hears when the
TAD answers a call.
Note: The maximum outgoing message
length is 30 seconds.
Since the TAD can receive and save
messages for up to four different users,
the outgoing announcement should explain how to leave a message for a particular person. For example:
10
Note: When memory is full, the
TAD announces, “Memory is full,”
and you cannot record the outgoing
message. You must delete some
messages before you can record
the outgoing message (see “Deleting Messages”).
43-747.fm Page 11 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:22 PM
2. While holding down ANN , speak in a
normal voice about 8 inches away

messages, the TAD answers after four
rings. If there are new messages in any
mailbox, the TAD answers after about
two rings. This lets you avoid unnecessary toll charges when calling by longdistance to check your messages. If you
hear more than two rings, the TAD has
no new messages. Hang up before the
TAD answers so you will not be charged
for the call.

BASIC OPERATION
SETTING THE TAD TO
ANSWER CALLS
RECORDING INCOMING
MESSAGES
To set the TAD to answer calls, press
ANSWER.
After the TAD answers a call, the outgoing message plays. After the TAD
beeps at the end of the announcement,
the caller must select a mailbox by entering a number (1-4). The TAD announces, “Record Mailbox” and the
mailbox number. If the caller does not
select a mailbox, the recorded message
is left in Mailbox 1.
• If an outgoing message is recorded,
the TAD announces, “Answer on,”
and the indicator in the call/message counter window lights.
• If no outgoing message is recorded,
the TAD says, “Answer off, no
announcement.” (See “Recording
the Outgoing Message.”)
The maximum incoming message recording length is 60 seconds. If a recording reaches 55 seconds, the TAD
beeps once to notify the caller that time

SCREENING CALLS
Your TAD lets you listen as callers leave
messages. If you want to speak to a caller, pick up any phone on the same line
and begin speaking. The TAD detects
when you pick up the phone and automatically resets to answer the next call.
(Or, to play only the new messages,
press and hold down the mailbox button.) The TAD announces “Mailbox __”
and the number of messages (or new
messages) stored in that mailbox.
Note: If you pick up the phone exactly
when the TAD answers, you might need
to press STOP to stop the TAD, or hang
up momentarily, then pick up the phone
again.
Notes:
If you do not want to take the call, do not
pick up the handset, and let the TAD finish recording the caller’s message.
PLAYING MESSAGES
The TAD stores each message in one of
the four mailboxes, depending on which
mailbox the caller selected. If there are

there are no new messages stored
in the selected mailbox, the TAD
says, “Mailbox __, no new message.”
The TAD announces the mailbox number and the total number of messages
for that mailbox. Before playing each
message, the TAD announces the message number and the day and time
when each message was recorded. After all messages play, the TAD says,
“End of message(s)” and saves all the
messages.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Radio Shack TAD-1007 Multi-User Digital Telephone Answering System with
Day/Time Voice Stamp is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for the TAD so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might
contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the TAD gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and can cause the TAD to work improperly.
Use and store the TAD only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and
distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
CLEANER
Wipe the TAD with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents
to clean the TAD.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate your TAD’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate
it. If your TAD-1007 Multi-User Digital Telephone Answering System with Day/Time
Voice Stamp is not performing as it should, take it to your local Radio Shack store for
assistance. If the trouble is affecting the phone lines, the phone company might ask

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
To eliminate interference, you can try
one or more of the following corrective
measures:
In the unlikely event that your TAD causes problems on the telephone line, the
telephone company attempts to notify
you in advance. If advance notice is not
practical, the telephone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC.
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
radio or TV antenna.
Also, the telephone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this TAD. The telephone
company notifies you of these changes
in advance so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your
telephone service.
Consult your local Radio Shack store if
the problem still exists.
Your TAD complies with the limits for a
Class B digital device as specified in
Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio
and TV interference in a residential area.
However, your TAD might cause TV or
radio interference even when it is operating properly.
• Increase the distance between the
TAD and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical
circuits for the TAD and the radio or
TV.
LIGHTNING
Your TAD has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone and power line current.
These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However,
lightning striking the telephone 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 the TAD during storms
to reduce the possibility of damage.
