Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your 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.
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, use caution when using electric appliances during storms.
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.

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 the
Supplier.
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 is properly charged. If you get a LOW BATTERY
message or indication, the battery needs charging.
No dial tone
• First try 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. Contact
your local telephone company.
You get noise, static, or a weak signal even when you're near the Base Unit
• 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.
The Handset does not ring when you receive a call
• Make sure you have the ringer activated. Refer to the section(s) on ringer
selection in this User’s Manual.
• 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.
• 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
• 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.
You hear noise in the Handset, and none of the keys or buttons work
• Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
25
Additional Information
You get noise, static, or a weak signal when you're away from the Base Unit
• You may be out of range. Either move closer to the Base, or relocate the
Base Unit.
• The layout of your home may be limiting the range. Try moving the Base
Unit to another position.
In Case Of Difficulty
Additional Information
Common cure for electronic
equipment
If the unit does not seem to be
responding normally, then try putting
the Handset in its Base. If it does not
seem to respond, do the following (in
the order listed):
1. Disconnect the power to the
Base.
2. Disconnect the Handset battery,
and spare battery, if
applicable.
3. Wait a few minutes.
4. Connect power to the Base.
5. Re-install the battery(ies).
6. Wait for the Handset to
reestablish its link with the Base.
To be safe, allow up to one minute
for this to take place.

equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is

FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior
to July 23, 2001, it complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) rules. If the equipment was approved after that date,
it complies with the Part 68 rules and with Technical Requirements for

FCC and ACTA Regulations
Connection of Equipment to the Telephone Network adopted by the
Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required
to provide you with the following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other
things, an identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN). This information must be provided to your local telephone
company upon request. For equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the
product identifier is preceded by the phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN is
listed separately. For equipment approved after that date, the product identifier
is preceded by “US” and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in the product
identifier without a decimal point as the sixth and seventh characters following
the colon. For example, the product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ would
indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not
all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more
information, please contact your local telephone company.

Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to
be connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The
equipment must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection.
The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions
