1 Notification to the Local Telephone Company
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the US number and Ringer
Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must, upon request, provide this information to your
telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still have all
of these devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of
all devices connected to one line should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you may connect
to your line as determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone company.
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply
with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the 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. See installation instructions for details.
Notes

equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local telephone company.
•
Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent disconnection of your telephone from
your line.
•
If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone line, ensure the installation
of this product does not disable your alarm equipment. If you have questions about what will disable alarm
equipment, consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.
2 Rights of theÍ Telephone Company
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone network, the telephone
company shall, where practicable, notify you that temporary discontinuance of service may be required.
Where prior notice is not practicable and the circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company may
temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such temporary discontinuance, the telephone company
must: (1) promptly notify you of such temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the opportunity to correct the
situation; and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant to procedures set
forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment, operations or
procedures where such action is required in the operation of its business and not inconsistent with FCC Rules and
Regulations. If these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment, the
telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.

To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless telephone
should not be placed near or on top of a TV, microwave ovens, or VCR. If such
interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away from these
appliances.
Certain other communications devices may also use the 5.8 GHz frequency for
communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may interfere with each
other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned with interference,
please refer to the owner’s manual for these devices on how to properly set
channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may use the 5.8 GHz
frequency for communication include wireless audio/video senders, wireless
computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some longrange cordless telephone systems.
There are four programmable menus available: Language, Area Code, Ringer Tone,

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to 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.
• Reset the power supply. Unplug the supply and plug it in again after five seconds.
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 to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
Causes of Poor Reception
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television
that is “receiving” the interference).
No display
• Aluminum siding.
• Fully charge (for 16 hours) or replace the battery.
• If you are using AC (electrical) power, make sure that the unit is connected to a nonswitched electrical outlet. Unplug the AC power converter from the unit and plug it
back in.
• To see Caller ID information in your display, you must be subscribed to Caller ID
service through your local telephone company.
• Foil backing on insulation.
• Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the telecommunications
equipment and receiving antenna.
Caller ID incomplete
• Base is plugged into an AC outlet with other electronic devices.
• The unit displays this message if it detects anything other than valid Caller ID
information during the silent period after the first ring. This message indicates the
presence of noise on the line.
• Baby monitor is using the same frequency.

Handset can not link.
• If any handsets become inoperable, place it on the main base cradle for 20 seconds
to re-register.
No dial tone
• Check or repeat installation steps
• Make sure the base power cord is connected to a working electrical outlet.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is connected to the base unit and the modular
phone jack?
• Disconnect the base from the wall phone jack and connect another phone to the
same jack. If there is no dial tone on the second phone, the problem might be your
wiring or local service.
• The handset might be out of range of the base. Move closer to the base.
• Make sure the battery is properly charged (for 16 hours).
• Ensure the battery pack is installed correctly.
• Did the handset beep when you pressed the talk/end/callback button? Did the in use
indicator come on? The battery may need to be charged.
Handset does not ring
• Make sure the RINGER switch on the handset is turned to ON.
• Reset the battery. Unplug the battery and plug it in again after five seconds.
• Heating ducts and other metal construction can shield radio signals.
• You’re too close to appliances such as microwaves, stoves, computers, etc.
• Atmospheric conditions, such as strong storms.
• Base is installed in the basement or lower floor of the house.
• Handset battery is low.
• Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiving antenna is connected.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal
Communications Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “How To Identify and
Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S.
Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402. Please specify stock number 004000-00345-4 when ordering copies.
