MAINTENANCE
TA K I N G C A R E O F Y O U R
TELEPHONE.
• Your VTECH 914 ADLi cordless
telephone contains sophisticated
electronic parts so it must be treated
with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save
the original packing materials to protect
your telephone if you ever need to ship
it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
36
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,
In the US call:
VTECH Communications at
1-800-624-5688.
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 BATT indicator
is on, the battery needs charging. If
the IN USE indicators do not light
when you press PHONE, you must
charge the batteries.
• If you recently installed a new battery
pack, make sure it is installed
correctly.
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. Call your local telephone
company.
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR A
WEAK SIGNAL EVEN WHEN
YOU’RE NEAR THE BASE UNIT.
• Place the handset in the base
momentarily to re-set the security
code. Then press PHONE to get a
line.
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 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 the second or third floor,
or to some other location.
THE HANDSET DOES NOT RING
WHEN YOU RECEIVE A CALL.
• Ensure that the ringer is turned on.
• 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.
YOUR CALLER FADES IN AND OUT.
You may be nearly out of range. Move
closer, or relocate the base.
YOU HEAR OTHER CALLS WHILE
USING YOUR PHONE.
• Replace the handset in the base
cradle, wait a few moments and try
again.
• 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.
37
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
YOU HEAR NOISE IN THE
HANDSET, AND NONE OF THE
KEYS OR BUTTONS WORK.
• Make sure the power cord is plugged
in.
• Your base unit and handset may not
be operating on the same channel
or security code. Place the handset
in the cradle for a few moments to
reload the security code and reset
the channel.
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 to reinitialize the unit. If it still does not seem
to respond, perform the following steps
(in the order listed):
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Disconnect the power to the base.
Disconnect the handset battery.
Wait a few minutes.
Connect power to the base.
Connect the handset battery.
Put the handset in the base to reinitialize.

FCC Part 15
Warning: Changes or modifications
to this unit not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance’s
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:
-
Your 914 ADLi is designed to operate
at the maximum power allowed by the
FCC. 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.
-
-
40
Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
Increase the separation between
the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an

FCC REGULATIONS
FCC Part 68
The FCC requires that you connect
your cordless telephone to the
nationwide telephone network through
a modular telephone jack (USOC
RJ11C or RJ11W).
Yo u r t e l e p h o n e c o m p a n y m a y
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.
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.
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.
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
