VTech vt1721 Operating instructions

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations!
You have purchased one of the most sophisticated
cordless telephones on the market!
The VTech VT 1721 has been designed to offer a new standard in cordless telephone technology.
Keys. In addition, the handset keypad
and LCD illuminate while the handset
rings to signal an incoming call. This is
very useful in a dark environment.
The VTech VT 1721 also provides a
one-way Page/Find. Pressing the Base
Unit PAGE key will cause the Handset
to ring in a manner which distinguishes
it from normal incoming ringing. This
can be used to alert the Handset user
or to simply locate the Handset in the
event that it is misplaced.
Unlike most other cordless phones,
the VTech VT 1721 digitizes your voice
using advanced digital voice coding to
provide noise and distortion free performance. In most conditions you will
not be able to tell you are using a
cordless phone. Gone are the annoyances of static, interference and having to listen to other people’s conversations on your cordless phone.
The VTech VT 1721 uses special
memory in both the Base Unit and
Handset which is not susceptible to
power failures. This provides permanent storage of all speed dial numbers,
CID information as well as the Base
Unit and Handset security codes.
The VTech VT 1721 scrambles your
voice before it transmits it. This allows
you the security of knowing that no one
can tune in and eavesdrop on your
conversations.
The VTech VT 1721 decodes and
displays name and number Caller ID
(CID) information where available and
when subscribed to. The alpha-numeric display will show both the name
and number of the calling party (when
available). Up to 15 name characters
and/or 11 phone number digits can be
displayed on the LCD.
When a spare battery is installed in
the Base Unit, the VTech VT 1721 uses
this battery to provide operational
backup in case of power failure. In this
way you have access to all normal
phone functions during a total power
outage. Calls can still be placed and
received without interruption. More
than 4 hours backup will be possible
with a fully charged battery in the Base
Unit.
With the VTech VT 1721, the user
can easily answer a call by pressing
any key other than the OFF or VOLUME
The phone will also alert you when
you are Out of Range even when you're
not using the phone!

company or Party Lines.
FCC Part 68
The FCC requires that you connect
your cordless telephone to the nationwide telephone network through a
modular telephone jack (USOC
RJ11C, RJ11W or RJ14).
The REN is useful in determining the
number of devices you may connect to
your telephone line and still enable the
devices to ring when you receive a call.
The general rule is that the REN value
should not exceed 5.0 total; however,
contact your local telephone company
for the specific number in your area.
Your telephone company may discontinue your service if your equipment causes harm to the telephone
network. They will notify you in advance of disconnection, if possible.
During notification, you will be informed
of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC.
Occasionally, your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operation, or procedures that could affect the operation of
your equipment. If so, you will be given
advance notice of the change to give
you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted service.
The Base Unit contains no user serviceable parts. The Handset contains a
user replaceable battery pack.
If it is determined that your telephone
equipment is malfunctioning, the FCC
requires that it not be used and that it
be unplugged from the modular jack
until the problem has been corrected.
Repairs to this telephone equipment
can only be made by the manufacturer
or its authorized agents or by others
who may be authorized by the FCC.
For repair procedures, follow the instructions outlined under the Limited
Warranty.

INSTALLING THE BATTERY PACK
The Handset of your VTech VT
1721 cordless telephone is powered
by a rechargeable battery pack. It
charges automatically whenever the
Handset is in the Base Unit. You should
charge the battery pack for 16 hours
when you first receive your phone.
You’ll know the battery pack needs
charging when:
tween charges is 7 hours of continuous talk time or 14 days of stand by.
Alternatively, if you have purchased
a spare battery pack and it has been

MAINTENANCE
TAKING CARE OF YOUR
TELEPHONE.
CLEANING YOUR TELEPHONE
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for
many years. Clean it only with a soft
cloth slightly dampened with water or
a mild soap. Do not use excess water
or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Your VTech VT 1721 cordless
telephone contains sophisticated
electronic parts, so it must be treated
with care.
AVOID ROUGH TREATMENT
Place the Handset down gently. Save
the original packing materials to
protect your telephone if you ever
need to ship it.
Remember that electrical appliances
can cause serious injury if used
when you are wet or standing in
water. If your base unit should fall
into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT
UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER
CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORDS
FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit
out by the unplugged cords.
AVOID WATER
Your telephone can be damaged if it
gets wet. Do not use the Handset
outdoors in the rain, or handle it with
wet hands. Do not install your Base
Unit near a sink, bathtub or shower.
ELECTRICAL STORMS
Electrical storms can sometimes
cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment.
For your own safety, be caution when
using electrical appliances during
storms.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If you have difficulty operating your
phone, the suggestions below should
solve the problem. If you still have
difficulty after trying these suggestions,
call Vtech at 1-800-595-9511.
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR
A WEAK SIGNAL WHEN
YOU’RE AWAY FROM THE
BASE UNIT.
•
THE PHONE DOESN’T WORK
AT ALL.
•
•
•
•
Make sure the Power Cord is
plugged in.
Make sure the telephone line
cord is plugged firmly into the
Base Unit and the telephone wall
jack.
Make sure the battery pack is
properly charged. If the "LOW
BATTERY" message is shown,
the battery pack needs charging.
THE HANDSET DOES NOT
RING WHEN YOU RECEIVE A
CALL.
•
•
NO DIAL TONE.
•
•
First check all the suggestions
above.
If you still don’t hear a dial tone,
disconnect the Base Unit from
the telephone jack and connect a
different phone. If there is no dial
tone on that phone either, the
problem is in your wiring or local
service. Call your local telephone
company.
•
•
Make sure you have the Handset
ringer activated.
Make sure the telephone line
cord is plugged firmly into the
Base Unit and the telephone
jack. Make sure the power cord
is plugged in.
You may be too far from the Base
Unit. And the "OUT OF RANGE"
message is shown on LCD.
You may have too many extension
phones on your telephone line to
allow all of them to ring. Try
unplugging some of the other
phones.
YOU HEAR OTHER CALLS
WHILE USING YOUR PHONE.
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR
A WEAK SIGNAL EVEN
WHEN YOU’RE NEAR THE
BASE UNIT.
•
You may be out of range. Either
move close to or relocate the
Base Unit.
The layout of your home may be
limiting the range. Try moving the
Base Unit to another position.
•
Household appliances plugged
into the same circuit as the Base
Unit can sometimes cause
interference.
Try moving the
appliance or the Base Unit to
another outlet.
37
Disconnect your Base Unit from
the telephone jack, and plug in a
regular telephone.
If you still
hear other calls, the problem is
probably in your wiring or local
service. Call your local telephone
company.
