VTech vt1511 Operating instructions

INTRODUCTION
When an optional battery pack is
installed in the base unit, the VT 1511
uses this battery to provide operational
backup in case of power failure. In this
way you have access to headset
functions during total power outage.
Calls can still be placed and received
on the headset without interruption. Up
to 5 hours of backup will be possible
with a fully charged battery pack in the
base unit.
Congratulations! You have purchased
one of the most sophisticated and
unique cordless telephones on the
market. The VT 1511 has been
designed to offer a new standard in
cordless telephone technology.
Unlike most other cordless phones, the
VT 1511 is a completely wireless
headset telephone. The VT 1511
digitizes your voice using advanced
ADPCM digital voice encoding 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 peoples
conversations on your cordless
telephone.
The VT 1511 informs you when another
extension is currently in use on the
same phone line. The phone will also
alert you when you are Out of Range,
even when you’re not on the phone!
The VT 1511 has a very unique space
design. When using the headset, you
have complete freedom of movement.
There are no cords or cables to worry
about, so your hands will be free to
keep working. The VT 1511 Wireless
Headset is a revolution in cordless
telephones.
The VT 1511 scrambles your voice
before it transmits. This allows you the
security of knowing that no one can
eavesdrop on your conversations.
The VT 1511 uses special memory
which is not susceptible to power
failures. This provides permanent
storage of all memory dial numbers
and security codes.

and 68 of the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC) rules for the United
States. It also complies with regulations
RSS210 and CS-03 of Industry and
Science Canada. Operation is subject
to the following two conditions:
Warning :
Changes or modifications to this unit
not expressly approved by the party
responsible for compliance could void
the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
1.
This device may not cause
interference, and
2.
This device must accept any
interference, including interference
that may cause undesired
operation of the device.
The equipment has been tested and
found to comply with part 15 of the FCC
rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates,
uses and can radiate radio frequency
energy. And, if not installed and used
in accordance with the instruction, may
cause harmful interference to radio or
television reception, which can be
determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to
try and correct the interference by one
or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
• Increase the separation between
the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an
outlet or on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is
connected.
• Consult the dealer or a qualified
technician for help.
A label is located on the underside of
the base unit containing either the FCC
registration number and Ringer
Equivalence Number (REN) or the
Industry Canada (IC) registrations
number and Load Number. You must,
upon request, provide this information
to your local telephone company.
Hearing Aid Compatibility
This equipment is compatible with
inductively coupled hearing aids.
Should you experience trouble with this
telephone equipment, please contact
VTech at 1-800-595-9511 for warranty
and/or repair information.
The
telephone company may ask you to
disconnect this equipment from the line
network until the problem has been

FCC REGULATIONS
FCC Part 68
This equipment may not be used on
coin service provided by the phone
company or Party Lines.
The FCC requires that you connect
your cordless telephone to 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 5.0A total;
however, contact your local telephone
company for the specific number in
your area.
Your local 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.
Your VT 1511 is designed to operate
at the maximum power allowed by the
FCC. This means your handset can
communicate with the base unit only
over a certain distance – which will
depend on the location of the base unit
and handset, weather, and the
construction and layout of your home
or office.
Occasionally, your local 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
manufacturer’s Limited Warranty.

MAINTENANCE
Taking Care or Your Telephone
Cleaning your telephone
Your VT 1511 cordless telephone
contains sophisticated electronic parts,
so it must be treated with care.
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.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the headset down gently. Save
the original packing material 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 CORDS
FORM 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 headset
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.
