VTech 1930c Operating instructions

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations! You have purchased
one of the most sophisticated cordless
telephones on the market! The VTech
VT 1930c has been designed to offer
a new standard in cordless telephone
technology.
The VTech VT 1930c also provides
a two-way Intercom/Handset locator
function.
The VTech VT 1930c 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,
Caller ID (CID) information as well as
the base and handset security codes.
Unlike most other cordless phones, the
VTech VT 1930c 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 peopleÕs
conversations on your cordless phone.
When an optional battery pack is
installed in the base unit, the VTech
VT 1930c uses this battery pack to
provide operational backup in case of
power failure. In this way you have
access to Handset functions during a
total power outage. Calls can still be
placed and received on the Handset
without interruption. Up to 5 hours
backup will be possible with a fully
charged battery pack in the base unit.
The VTech VT 1930c 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 1930c 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.
The VTech VT 1930c 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
using the phone!
With the VTech VT 1930c, 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 display illuminate while
the handset rings to signal an incoming
call. This is very useful in a dark
environment.

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 5.0A 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.

identifies certified equipment.
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.
5
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.
The equipment must also be installed
using an acceptable method of
connection. The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above
conditions may not prevent degradation
of services in some situations.
Caution: Users should not attempt to
make such connections
themselves, but should

Your VTech VT 1930c is designed to
operate at the maximum power allowed by the FCC and IC. This means
your handset and base unit can
communicate 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.
Repairs to certified equipment should
be made by an authorized Canadian
maintenance facility designated by the
supplier. Any repairs or alterations
made by the user to this equipment,
or equipment malfunctions, may give
the telecommunications company
cause to request the user to disconnect
the equipment.

REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK
Charging The Handset Battery Pack
The handset of your VTech VT 1930c
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. YouÕll know the
battery pack needs charging when:
Alternatively, if you have purchased a
spare battery pack and it has been

the spare battery charger.
¥ The handset seems completely
dead, the display is clear and the
handset does not beep when you
press the keys.
It's Impossible To Overcharge The
Battery Pack
The battery pack can be recharged
many times, but if you get a low battery
message 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.
To Charge 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
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 standby.
To purchase replacement battery
packs, call VTECH Communications

CALLER ID (CID)
Caller ID (CID)
Your VTech VT 1930c 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 Caller
ID (CID) service is available and you
must subscribe to it to use this feature.
If you do not subscribe to the Caller
ID (CID) service, the phone will still
operate normally, except that the
Caller ID (CID) information is not
received or displayed.
If you subscribe to alphanumeric
(name and number) Caller ID service,
the calling party's name and phone
number (when available) will be
displayed on the handset screen while
the phone is ringing.
Receiving and Storing Calls
This unit receives and displays all
Caller ID (CID) information: the callerÕs
telephone number, the caller's 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 handset
screen while the phone is ringing.
The phone sequentially numbers these
call records and retains them in the
unitÕs memory for later review. The
unit can store up to 50 numbers in its
memory.
Call Waiting Caller ID (Type II CID)
Your VTech 1930c 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
handset 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 Caller ID (CID) memory is
full, any new call forces a deletion of
the oldest call record.
Dialing From Caller ID (CID) Memory
NOTE:
Only the last 7 digits of any number are
displayed when dialing from Caller ID
(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 and phone number from
being sent.
32
CALLER ID (CID)
However, when you dial directly from
Caller ID (CID) memory, only the last
7 digits of the received telephone
number will be 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 Caller ID (CID)
service area, the message UNAVAILABLE is displayed.
The VTech VT 1930c 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 Caller ID (CID) number, do
the following:
¥ Beginning from the standby mode,
key in the necessary digits. Your
display will look like this:
ÒPrivateÓ Calls
If the caller has exercised the option
to block his or her number from being
sent, then the display will show
PRIVATE.
¥ Then, to temporarily add the last 7
digits only from a Caller ID (CID)
memory, press CID .
Transmission Error
If an error is detected, then the Caller
ID (CID) information is incomplete
and
will not be displayed.
TRANSMISSION ERROR will be
displayed.
¥ 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 display, and the
whole number shown below will be
automatically dialed.
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.
33
CALLER ID (CID)
Reviewing Numbers
Calls stored in memory can be
reviewed by pressing CID . The
display will show the number of the
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.
To save you time in reviewing call
records, you can Òwrap-aroundÓ 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.
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 Caller ID (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

ADDITIONAL OPERATING TIPS
Noise Or Interference
Your VTech VT 1930c 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 VT 1930c 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
When 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 display CHANNEL
SEARCHING. 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 VT 1930c 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

MAINTENANCE
Taking Care Of Your Telephone
Your VTech VT 1930c 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.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If you have difficulty operating your
phone, the suggestions below should
solve the problem. If you still have
difficulty
after
trying
these
suggestions, call
VTECH
Communications at 1-800-595-9511.
In Canada, call VTECH Electronics at
1-800-267-7377.
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR A
WEAK SIGNAL WHEN YOUÕRE
AWAY FROM THE BASE UNIT.
¥ You may be out of range. Either
move close 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.
THE PHONE DOESNÕT WORK AT
ALL.
¥ Make sure the Power Cord is
pugged 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' message is shown, the
battery pack needs charging.
THE HANDSET DOES NOT RING
WHEN YOU RECEIVE A CALL.
¥ Make sure you have the handset
ringer activated. To set the ringer,
see "PROGRAMMING THE
RINGER".
¥ Make sure the telephone line cord
is plugged firmly into the base unit
and the telephone jack. Make sure
the power cord is plugged in.
¥ You may be too far from the base
unit.
¥ You may have too many extension
phones on your telephone line to
allow all of them to ring. Try
unplugging some of the other
phones.
NO DIAL TONE.
¥ First check all the suggestions
above.
¥ If you still donÕt 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. Call your local telephone
company.
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.
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR A
WEAK SIGNAL EVEN WHEN
YOUÕRE 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 HEAR NOISE IN THE HANDSET,
AND NONE OF THE KEYS OR
BUTTONS WORK.
Make sure the power cord is plugged
in.
38
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
COMMON CURE FOR ELECTRONIC
EQUIPMENT
Electronics, like people, can sometimes
get confused. If the unit does not seem
to be responding normally, then try
putting the handset in the cradle. If
it does not seem to respond after trying
this a few times, do the following (in
the order listed):
1. Disconnect the power to the base.
2. Disconnect the handset battery.
3. Wait a few minutes.
4. Connect power to the base.
5. Connect the handset battery.
6. Put the handset in the base.
