INFORMATION
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. 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:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
– Increase the separation between the equipment and
receiver.
– Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different
from that to which the receiver is connected.
– Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician
for help.
You are cautioned that any changes or modifications not
expressly approved in this manual could void your authority
to operate this equipment.

polarity.
• The batteries are weak.
• The buttons are locked with the HOLD switch. (If
you press any button, “HOLD” will flash three
times.)
No sound comes from the speaker.

• Due to the limitation of the IC
recording system, this unit records
in the minimum recording unit of
approx. 30 seconds at most,
therefore the following symptoms
may occur:
– When a message is shorter than
the minimum recording unit, it is
still counted as approx. 30
seconds at most so the remaining
recording time will decrease by
more than the actual length of the
message.
– When the message is longer than
the minimum recording unit, the
remaining recording time will
decrease by more than the actual
length of the message if it cannot
be divided by the minimum
recording unit without a
remainder.
– The sum of the number on the

and the remaining recording time
may be less than the unit’s
