When using your telephone equipment, basic safety precautions should
always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to
persons, including the following:
• The charger is NOT waterproof: Do not use or place the charger near
water (e.g., near a bathtub, wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet
basement or near a swimming pool).
• If the charger falls into the water, unplug the AC adaptor before removing it
from the water.
• Wipe excess water off the handset before returning it to the charger.
• Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an electrical
storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning.
• Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
• Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual. Do not
dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for
possible special disposal instructions.
• Do not place the handset in any charging cradle without the battery
installed and the battery cover securely in place.

Under power failure conditions this appliance may not operate. Please
ensure that a separate telephone, not dependent on local power, is available

Understanding the Waterproof Handset
The handset complies with JIS7 water submersion specifications. It
can remain submerged under 1m of water for up to 30 minutes without
damage or loss of functionality. If the handset falls into water, just remove
it; you can continue using the handset as normal.
The handset will still receive calls even if it is under water, but you
probably won’t be able to hear the ringer or the earpiece. To avoid any
accidents, do not try to use the handset while it is still under water.
If you notice that the sound is distorted after your handset is submerged
in water, there might still be water around the speaker and microphone.
Just shake the handset to clear the water, and the sound should return to
normal. Don’t place the handset where it will be subjected to direct
sunlight for long periods of time.
Charge the Battery
The handset’s rechargeable battery is already installed. Before you can
charge the battery, you have to power it on.
1. Remove the cardboard spacer.
2. Press the power on/off (activation) pin according to the directions on
the label.
3. Remove the label once the handset is powered on.
Save the power on/off pin in case you need to change the
handset’s power status later (i.e., to power off the handset when
it will not be used for a long time). Use the plastic power on/off
pin or a blunt-tipped object like an uncurled paper clip to press
the power on/off toggle through the rubber seal. Do not use a
sharp object; sharp objects might puncture the rubber seal and
jeopardize the handset’s waterproof status.
4. Connect the AC adaptor to the charger’s DC IN 9V jack and set the
cord into the notch. (This adaptor might already be connected.)
5. Plug the other end of the adaptor into a standard 240V AC power
6. Place the handset in the charger with the display facing forward. The
display on the handset should turn on.
the handset display does not
turn on
• Checking the AC adaptor
• Seeing if the outlet is controlled
by a wall switch.

the System Reset menu
appears (about 5 seconds).
2. Select Deregister HS. The
display lists all registered

When you reset a handset (or if you buy a new one), that handset
displays a Handset Not Registered message. If you see this message
on a handset, you need to register it to a base before you can use it.
• As the handset adapts to the base, the exact features and operation of
the handset will vary slightly depending on which base you register the
handset to. Refer to the owner’s manual for the base you’re registering
the handset to for feature descriptions.
• All features and operation for the handset are described in the owner’s
manual for one of the bases listed under the Compatible Bases
