Athen / GBR / A31008-M1801-L101-1-7619 / Athen_en_Kombi.fm / 11.08.2006 2 Safety precautions W Read the user guide and the safety precautions carefully before use. Explain their contents to your children, and the potential hazards associated with using the telephone. $ Step 1: Connecting the base station Only use the mains unit supplied. Fit only the approved rechargeable battery pack! Never use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery pack as this could damage your health and cause injury. Use the battery pack as directed in this user guide (page 3). The operation of medical appliances may be affected. Be aware of the technical conditions within the particular environment (e.g. doctor's practice). Do not hold the rear of the handset to your ear when it is ringing or when the handsfree function is activated. This can cause severe, permanent hearing damage. The handset may cause an unpleasant humming noise in hearing aids. Do not install the phone in a bathroom or shower room. The handset and base station are not splashproof. Do not use the telephone in environments subject to explosion hazard (e.g. auto paint shops). ƒ Setting up the telephone for use If you give your Gigaset to someone else, make sure you also give them the user guide. All electrical and electronic equipment should not be disposed of separately from general household waste using the sites designated by local authorities. If this symbol showing a crossed-out rubbish bin appears on a product, this product is subject to European Directive 2002/96/EC. The appropriate disposal and separate collection of used equipment serve to prevent potential harm to the environment and to health. They are a precondition for the re-use and recycling of used electrical and electronic equipment. For further information on disposing of your used equipment, please contact your local council refuse centre or the dealer you purchased the product from. Emergency numbers cannot be dialled if the key lock (page 1) is activated! Not all of the functions described in this user guide are available in all countries. 1 2 First connect the mains unit (230 V) to power cord 1 and then connect the phone jack to phone cord 2, as shown above. Place the cords in the cord recesses. The two cords must be plugged in at all times. ◆ Only use the mains unit supplied. ◆ If you ever purchase another phone cord from a store, ensure that the phone conductors are correctly connected: 3-4 connection of the telephone conductors/EURO CTR37. Athen / GBR / A31008-M1801-L101-1-7619 / Athen_en_Kombi.fm / 11.08.2006 3 Step 2: Setting up the handset Please note: The display is protected by a plastic film. Please remove the protective film! Fitting the battery pack ◆ Place the battery leads in the cable guides so that the battery cover cannot catch on the leads and damage them when it is closed. ◆ Use only the rechargeable battery pack recommended by Siemens (page 8), i.e. never use a conventional (non-rechargeable) battery pack as this may cause significant damage to health and property. For example, the outer casing of the battery pack could be destroyed or the battery pack could explode. The phone could also malfunction or be damaged as a result of using batteries that are not of the recommended type. ◆ Never use non-Siemens battery chargers as this could damage the battery pack. ◆ Only place the handset in the charging cradle that is intended for it. ◆ Insert the plug into the socket as shown in the enlarged view. ◆ Insert the battery pack. ◆ Place the cords in the cord routing. Closing the battery cover Insert the cover into the top end of the battery compartment and press down until it clicks into place. Opening the battery cover Place your fingernail between the cover and the housing and pull the cover upwards. Step 3: Registering the handset to the base station and charging the battery pack Precondition: The handset is not already registered to a base station. Registering the handset to the Gigaset A160/A260 base station occurs automatically. Place the handset in the charging cradle of the base station with its display facing forward. You will hear a confirmation tone. Leave the handset in the base station until it is registered. For multi-sets: Repeat this procedure with each additional handset. Automatic registration can take up to 5 minutes. While this is happening, Registering flashes in the screen. The handset is assigned the lowest unassigned internal number (1–4). If several handsets are registered to the base station, the internal number is shown in the top left of the display after registration, e.g. 2. If the internal numbers 1 to 4 have already been assigned (four handsets have already been registered), handset number four is de-registered and overwritten. Charging the battery pack To charge the battery pack, leave the handset in the base station for approx. 13 hours. The battery pack is now fully charged. The charge status of the battery pack is correctly displayed only after uninterrupted charging/discharging. Therefore you should not interrupt the charging procedure. Charging is electronically controlled to prevent the battery pack from overcharging. The battery pack heats up during charging. This is normal and not dangerous. After a time its charge capacity will decrease for technical reasons. You must set the date and time to ensure that the times of calls are logged correctly (see Menu tree, page 10). Once the phone is registered and the time set, the idle display looks as shown on page 1.
