VTech vt1920 Operating instructions

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations! You have purchased
one of the most sophisticated cordless
telephones on the market! The VTech
VT 1920c has been designed to offer
a new standard in cordless telephone
technology.
The VTech VT 1920c also provides
a one-way Page/Find. Pressing the
base PAGE key will cause the handset
to ring in a manner which distinguishes
it from normal incoming ringing. This
can be used to alert the handset user,
or to simply locate the handset in the
event that it is misplaced.
Unlike most other cordless phones, the
VTech VT 1920c digitizes your voice
using advanced ADPCM 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.
The VTech VT 1920c uses special
memory in both the base and handset
which is not susceptible to power
failures. This provides permanent
storage of all memory dial numbers,
CID information as well as the base
and handset security codes.
When an optional battery pack is
installed in the base unit, the VTech VT
1920c uses this battery pack 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 5 hours backup
will be possible with a fully charged
battery pack in the base unit.
The VTech VT 1920c 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 VTech VT 1920c decodes and
displays name and/or number Caller ID
(CID) information where available and
when subscribed to. The alphanumeric display can show both the
name and number of the calling party.
Up to 24 name characters or 11 phone
number digits can be displayed on the
LCD.
The VTech VT 1920c informs you that
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 using
the phone!
With the VTech VT 1920c, the user can
easily answer a call by pressing any
key other than the OFF, MUTE or
VOLUME 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.

nationwide telephone network through
a modular telephone jack (USOC
RJ11C, RJ11W or RJ14).
This equipment may not be used on
coin service provided by the phone
company or Party Lines.
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 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.
IC (Industry Canada)
This telephone is registered for use in
Canada.
Occasionally, your 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.
Notice:The REN assigned to this
device denotes the number of
devices you may connect to
the telephone loop which is
used by the device to prevent
overloading The termination
on a loop may consist of any
combination of devices
subjected only to the
requirement that the sum of the
REN does not exceed five (5.0)
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.

This certification means that
the equipment meets certain
telecommunications network
protective, operational and
safety requirements. The
Department does not
guarantee the equipment will
operate to the user's
satisfaction.

FCC and IC Regulations
Before installing this equipment, users
should ensure that it is permissible to
be connected to the facilities of the
local telecommunications company.

REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK
spare battery pack and it has been
charging in the base unit, simply
exchange the drained handset battery
pack with the fully charged replacement battery pack from the base
charger. Place the drained handset
battery pack into the base charger to
recharge.
CHARGING THE HANDSET BATTERY PACK
The handset of your VTech VT 1920c
cordless telephone is powered by a
rechargeable battery pack. It charges
automatically whenever the handset is
in the base. You should charge the
battery pack for 16 hours when you first
receive your phone. You’ll know the
battery pack needs charging when:
•
The phone emits a warning tone
when you press the PHONE key.
•
The low battery message is
displayed:
•
The base spare battery charger does
NOT charge a battery pack as quickly
as the handset battery charger. A full
charge requires 24 hours when using
the spare battery charger.
IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERCHARGE THE BATTERY PACK
The battery pack can be recharged
many times, but if you get a low-battery
signal even after 16 hours of charging
in the base cradle (or 24 hours in the
base spare battery charger), the battery pack(s) should be replaced.
The handset seems completely
dead, the LCD is clear and the
handset does not beep when you
press the keys.
To purchase replacement battery
packs, call VTECH Communications at
1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call
VTECH Electronics at 1-800-2677377.
To Charge The Battery Pack
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset in the base unit. The CHARGE
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 and 8 hours for maintenance charging. 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
7 days of stand by.
A WORD ABOUT RECHARGEABLE
BATTERIES
Your Nicad battery pack recharges
whenever the Handset is returned to
the Base Unit cradle. You may return
the Handset to its cradle whenever
you're not using the phone.
However, to maximize the life of your
battery pack, do not return your VT
1920c Handset to the Base Unit cradle
for recharging until the LOW BATT
LED begins to flash.

Power Backup
When a Spare Battery pack is installed
in the Base Unit, the VTech VT 1920c
uses this battery pack to provide
operational backup in case of a power
failure. If you have a fully charged
battery pack in the Spare Battery pack
charger and there is a power outage,
you will still be able to place and
receive calls for up to five hours.
Replacing a Drained Handset battery
The Spare battery pack can also be
used to replace a drained Handset
battery pack to ensure uninterrupted
use. Be sure to put the drained battery
pack in the Spare Battery charger for

CID-CALLER ID
CID - CALLER ID
Your VTech VT1920C cordless phone
is capable of displaying the name and/
or phone number of the person calling,
before you answer the phone.
Subscription to Caller ID service through
your local phone company is required
to utilize this feature.
NOTE:
You must be in an area where CID
service is available and you must
subscribe to it to use this feature.
If you do not subscribe to the CID
service, the phone will still operate
normally except that the CID information
is not received or displayed.
If you subscribe to alphanumeric (name
& number) Caller ID service, the calling
party's name and phone number (when
available) will be displayed on the LCD
screen while the phone is ringing.
Receiving and Storing Calls
This unit receives and displays all CID
information, the caller’s telephone
number, the callers name and the
exact date and time of the call.
If you subscribe to numeric (number
only) Caller ID service, the calling
party's phone number (when available)
will be displayed on the LCD screen
while the phone is ringing.
The phone sequentially numbers these
call records and retains them in the
unit’s CID memory for later review.
These call record numbers are
displayed as the first two digits in the
display. The unit can store up to 50
numbers in its memory.
CALL WAITING CALLER ID (TYPE II
CID)
Your VTech VT 1920c cordless phone
is also capable of displaying Caller ID
information in connection with a Call
Waiting signal. If you are on a call, and
receive a Call Waiting alert signal, the
LCD will display the name and/or
number (when available) of the party
trying to reach you. As above,
subscription to Call Waiting ID service
through your local phone company is
required in order to utilize this feature.
Once the CID memory is full, any new
call forces a deletion of the oldest call
record.
DIALING FROM CID MEMORY
NOTE:
Only the last 7 digits of any number are
displayed when dialing from CID
memory.
For example, when you press and hold
the 7 key to view the phone number,
you would see the following:
A WORD ABOUT CALLER ID - CID
Due to regional incompatibilities, Caller
ID information may not be available for
every call you receive. In addition, the
calling party may intentionally block
their name & phone number from being
sent.

used. Consequently, you would actually
dial this:
Special Message Indicators
Out of Area Calls
If for any reason the telephone number
of the caller is unavailable, or if the
caller is outside the CID service area,
the message UNAVAILABLE is displayed on the LCD.
The VTech VT 1920c was designed to
accommodate this situation. If you
need to temporarily add a long dlstance
prefix and /or area code (such as 1503)
before the CID number, do the following:
• Beginning from the standby mode,
key in the necessary digits. Your
display will look like this:
•
Then, to temporarily add the last 7
digits only from a CID memory,
press CID .
•
Using the
(*) and
(#) keys,
scroll through the received calls to
locate the number you wish to dial.
•
Once you have located the number
you wish to dial, simply press
PHONE. The last seven digits will
be added to the numbers already
in the LCD, and the whole number
shown below will be automatically
dialed.
“Private” Calls
If the caller has exercised the option
to block his or her number from being
sent, then the display will show
PRIVATE.
Transmission Error
If an error is detected, then the CID
information is incomplete and will
not be displayed. “TRANSMISSION
ERROR” will be displayed on the LCD
screen.
The occasional appearance of
“TRANSMISSION ERROR” on your
display does not indicate a problem
with your unit or your telephone line.
However, if this appears frequently,
you may want to notify your telephone
company.

To find out the corresponding phone
number as well as the date and
time of the call, press and hold

Reviewing Numbers
Calls stored in memory can be

most recent (CALL #01). The top line
of the display is used to indicate the
memory location number and the
bottom line of the display shows the
name, see below:
Pressing the ( (*) key) displays the
next lower in sequence call record.
Likewise, pressing the ( (#) key)
displays the next higher in sequence)
call record. The higher the call number,
the older the call.
There may be additional characters
in the name which can not be
shown on the current display. Press
the
( 9 ) key. This will overwrite
the CID memory location on the top line
to show up to a maximum of 15 alpha
characters for the duration of the
key press. The first 12 alpha characters
will be on the top line with up to 3
additional characters on the second
line.
To save you time in reviewing call
records, you can “wrap-around” the
call history log. For example, if you
press the
(*) key enough to scroll
back to the first record, pressing it
again will force the display to go to the
very end of the call record.

ADDITIONAL OPERATING TIPS
NOISE OR INTERFERENCE
Your VTech VT1920C cordless
telephone has auto-channel scan
circuitry which will detect excess noise
and change the channel of the phone
to reduce it. This is done automatically.
OUT OF RANGE WHEN PHONE IS
ON
If you are presently engaged in a phone
conversation move closer to the base.
If the base unit does not communicate
with the handset within 25 seconds of
losing contact, it will automatically
hang up.
Since the VTech VT1920C is a fully
digital phone, it does not suffer from
noise associated with regular cordless
phones. At times you may experience
occasional "drop outs", especially at
the extreme edges of the phone's
range. Simply move closer to the base
unit and this will disappear.
OUT OF RANGE WHEN PHONE IS
OFF
If the phone is OFF, the handset and
base still monitor each other to make
sure that they can communicate. If the
handset is moved out of range, the
handset will make a series of beeps,
and will then display "CHANNEL
SERACHING" on the LCD. At 15
second intervals the handset will scan
all channels in an attempt to reestablish
communication with the base. This
process does not require user
intervention; the handset will re-link
with the base automatically once it is
brought back within range. The unit
will then be able to receive and place
calls.
AUTOMATIC SECURITY CODING
Your VTech VT1920C phone is factory
set with 16.8 million possible security
codes. This unique security code
allows your handset and base to
recognize each other, and minimizes
the possibility of another cordless
phone using your telephone line.
OUT OF RANGE INDICATION
If the handset is moved to a point where
the base and handset can no longer
communicate, the handset will make a
quick series of beeps to signal Out of
Range.
If the handset is active when taken
out-of-range, it will beep twice a
second and enter standby mode after
25 seconds if the link is not
reestablished. If the handset is
brought back within range, it will
automatically re-link.
When the base unit is unplugged from
the power supply, the handset will give
the "Out of Range" warning beep. Plug
the base in again and this will stop.
For out-of-range in standby mode, the
handset will beep once and then at 15
second intervals, will display
"CHANNEL SERACHING" on the
LCD, and scan all channels in an
attempt to re-link with the base.

MAINTENANCE
TAKING CARE OF YOUR TELEPHONE.
Your VTech VT1920C cordless
telephone contains sophisticated
electronic parts, so it must be treated
with care.
Cleaning your telephone
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 handset down gently. Save
the original packing materials 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 LINE CORDS FROM
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 handset
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.

different phone. If there is no dial
tone on that phone either, the
problem is in your wiring or local
service. Call your local telephone
company.

telephone jack, and plug in a
regular telephone. If you still hear

in your wiring or local service. Call
your local telephone company.
