Wall Mounting
Getting Started
Your VT2418 Base Unit is designed to mount on a standard telephone wall
plate. Wall mounting is optional.
1. Choose a spot near an electrical outlet and a telephone jack.Your phone
requires a modular telephone jack and a standard electrical outlet (120V
AC). The power cord is six feet long; make sure there is an electrical outlet
within reach of the Base. The outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch.
If the switch is ever turned off, the phone will not operate.
2. Mount the base on the wall. Position the base so the mounting studs will fit
into the holes at the back of the Base. Position the power cord to extend down
the wall the phone is to be mounted on. Slide the Base down on the mounting
studs until it locks into place.
3. Connect the telephone cord. The telephone line cord has a snap-in plug at
each end. Insert one of the plugs into the jack on the bottom of the Base. Insert
the other end of the plug into the wall phone jack.
4. Connect the power cord. Plug the DC connector into the DC jack at the
bottom of the Base Unit. Plug the AC power adapter into an electrical outlet.

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.
Additional
Information

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 LINE
CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the unit out by the unplugged cords.

problem. If you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions, call VTECH
Communications at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call VTECH Electronics at 1-800267-7377.
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 batteries are properly charged. If the 'LOW BATTERY' LED is slowly
flashing, the battery pack needs charging.
No Dial Tone
• First check 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.
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.
Additional
Information

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.

responsible for compliance could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
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 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:
• 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 an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
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 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. You may want to contact your local telephone
company for more information.

Information
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network
The plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and the
telephone network must comply with the applicable Part 68 rules and technical
requirements adopted by ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular plug is
provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack
that is also compliant. An RJ11 jack should normally be used for connecting to a single
line and an RJ14 jack for two lines. See Installation Instructions in the user’s manual.
This equipment may not be used with Coin Telephone Lines or with Party Lines. If
you have specially wired alarm dialing equipment connected to your telephone line,
ensure the connection of this equipment does not disable your alarm equipment. If
you have questions about what will disable alarm equipment, consult your telephone
company or a qualified installer.
3. Repair instructions
If this equipment is malfunctioning, it must 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. For repair procedures, follow the
instructions outlined under the Limited Warranty.
4. Rights of the telephone company
If this equipment is causing harm to the telephone network, the telephone company
may temporarily discontinue your telephone service. The telephone company is required
to notify you before interrupting service. If advance notice is not practical, you will
be notified as soon as possible. You will be given the opportunity to correct the problem
21
FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
and the telephone company is required to inform you of your right to file a complaint
with the FCC. Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment,
operation, or procedures that could affect the proper functioning of this product. The
telephone company is required to notify you if such changes are planned.
5. Hearing aid compatibility
If this product is equipped with a corded or cordless handset, it is hearing aid compatible.
6. Programming/testing of emergency numbers
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store police, fire
department and emergency medical service telephone numbers in these locations. If
you do, please keep three things in mind:
a. We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory card,
so that you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing feature
doesn’t work.
b. This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes
no responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c. Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
• You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before hanging
up.
• Programming/testing of emergency numbers should be performed during off-peak
hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the emergency services
tend to be less busy.
