VTech vt1734 Operating instructions

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations! You have purchased
one of the most sophisticated cordless
telephones on the market! The QW1734
has been designed to offer a new
standard in cordless telephone
technology.
addition, the Intercom feature allows
two-way communication between the
Handset and Base Unit. Pressing
INTERCOM on the Base can also assist
you in locating a misplaced Handset.
The QW1734 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.
Unlike most other cordless phones,
the QW1734 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.
When a spare battery(not included) is
installed in the Base Unit, the QW1734
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.
The QW1734 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 QW1734 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.
The phone will also alert you when
you are Out of Range even when you're
not using the phone!
With the QW1734, the user can easily
answer a call by pressing any key other
than the OFF, VOLUME keys or 3
Services 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 QW1734
includes a
Speakerphone and keypad on the Base
Unit. This enables you to make and
receive calls hands-free at the Base. In

interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference, including
interference that may cause undesired
operation of the device.
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 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 encouraged to try and correct the
interference by one or more of the
following measures:
The underside of the Base Unit
containing engravements of either the
FCC registration number and Ringer
Equivalence Number (REN), or the IC
registration number . You must, upon
request, provide this information to your
local telephone company.
- Reorient or relocate the receiving

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

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

INSTALLING THE BATTERY PACK
The Handset of your QW1734 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:
Alternatively, if a spare battery pack
has been charging in the Base Unit,
simply exchange the drained Handset
battery pack with the fully charged
replacement battery pack from the Base
Unit charger. Place the drained Handset
battery pack into the Base Unit charger
so that it will charge.
• The low battery message is displayed:
The Base Unit spare battery charger
does NOT charge a battery pack as
quickly as the main Handset battery
charger. A full charge requires 24 hours.
A WORD ABOUT
RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES
• The Handset seems completely dead,
the LCD is completely clear and does
not activate when you press the
keys.
Your Ni-Cd battery pack recharges
whenever the Handset is returned to the
Base Unit.
TO CHARGE THE BATTERY
PACK
IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO
OVERCHARGE THE BATTERY
PACK
To charge the battery pack, place the
Handset in the Base Unit. The
CHARGING indicator will light to show
the Handset is seated properly and the
battery pack is charging. It is
recommended that the battery pack be
charged for at least 16 hours initially.
Afterwards, 8 hours of maintenance
charging should be sufficient. You can
use your telephone before that with
diminished capacity, but it is best to
charge the battery pack fully. It will take
several recharge cycles to maximize
the charge capacity of your battery pack.
The maximum battery life between
charges is 7 hours of continuous talk
time or 14 days of stand by.
The battery pack can be recharged
many times but if you get a low-battery
signal even after 8 hours of charging in
the Base Unit cradle (or 24 hours in the
Base Unit spare battery charger), the
battery pack(s) should be replaced.
Replacement batteries can be
purchased from many retail stores
that carry electronic equipment.
8
INSTALLING THE BATTERY PACK
1.Use only the supplied rechargeable
battery pack, or equivalent.
2.Do not dispose of the battery pack
in a fire. The cell may explode.
IMPORTANT: Do not dispose of this
battery pack into household garbage.
For information on recycling or proper
disposal, consult your local solid
waste collection or disposal
organization.
REPLACING THE HANDSET
BATTERY PACK
Follow the steps below:
1.Remove the battery case cover by
pressing on the ridged lines and
sliding downward.
3.Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack. Released electrolyte is
corrosive and may cause damage to
the eyes or skin. It may be toxic if
swallowed.
4.Exercise care in handling batteries in
order not to short the battery with
conducting materials such as rings,
bracelets, and keys. The battery
pack or conductor may overheat and
cause burns.
Replacement batteries can be
purchased from many retail stores
that carry electronic equipment.
2.Discard the old battery pack. Don’t
put the old battery pack in a trash
compactor or a fire - it could burst.
Please recycle.
3.Place the new battery pack in its
housing with the metal contacts
facing down.
SPARE BATTERY CHARGER/
POWER BACKUP FUNCTION
When an optional, Spare Battery pack
is installed in the Base Unit, the QW1734
uses this battery to provide operational
backup in case of a power failure. If you
have a fully charged battery pack in the
Spare Battery charger and there is a
power outage, you will still be able to
place and receive calls on the QW1734
Handset for up to 4 hours.
The Spare Battery pack can also be
used to replace a drained Handset
battery to ensure uninterrupted use. Be
sure to put the drained battery pack in
the Spare Battery charger.
4.Replace the battery case cover by
sliding the cover upwards.
5.If the new battery pack is not already
charged, place the Handset in the
cradle of the Base Unit to allow it to
charge for 16 hours.
CAUTION: To Reduce the Risk of
Fire or Injury, Read and Follow the
Instructions
