About the digital security code
This cordless telephone uses a digital security code to prevent unauthorized access
to your base unit. This security code prevents other cordless handsets from making
calls through your base unit.
A random security code will be assigned automatically between your base unit and
handset when you charge the battery pack for the first time.
If you want to reset the security code, see page 38.

brochure. Here are some important guidelines you should consider:
Avoid heat sources, such as
radiators, air ducts, and sunlight
Avoid television sets
and other electronic

• You should charge your handset for 15-20 hours before using the phone.
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and a continuous power outlet
which is not switchable.
• Keep the base and handset away from sources of electrical noise such as motors and
fluorescent lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to raise the base antenna fully vertical.
• The base can be placed on a desk, tabletop or mounted on a standard wall plate.
• If your second phone line has a separate jack, place your phone so you can access
both jacks.

Battery use time (per charge)
From fully charged
• Seven hours coutinuous use.
• Seven days when the handset is in the standby mode.
When the battery charge becomes low
When the voltage of battery pack in the handset is
very low and needs to be charged, the phone is proLow Battery
grammed to eliminate functions in order to save
power. If the phone is not in use, "Low Battery"
flashes and none of the keys will operate. If the phone is in use, "Low Battery"
flashes and the handset beeps. Complete your conversation as quickly as possible and
return the handset to the base unit for charging.
Notes
• Even when the battery pack is not being used, it will gradually discharge over a long
period. For optimum performance, be sure to return the handset to the base unit
after a telephone call for charging the battery.
• The built-in memory backup can hold numbers and names stored in the memory for
up to 2 minutes, while you replace the battery pack.
• If you must replace the battery pack during a telephone call, complete the
replacement of the battery pack within 30 seconds, and you may return to the
original call.
• Rechargeable batteries have a memory effect that reduces standby and talk time.
To avoid this memory effect, on a monthly basis, use the phone until the
"Low Battery" indication appears. Then charge the battery for 15 hours.
Cleaning the battery contacts
To maintain a good charge, it is important to clean all battery contacts on the handset
and base unit about once a month. Use a soft cloth or other contact cleaner.
Do not use any liquids or solvents.
