Canada Ltd. at 1-800-267-7377.
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 you get a LOW BATTERY
message or indication, the battery cells need charging.
No dial tone:
• First try 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. Contact your local telephone
company.
You get noise, static, or a weak signal even when you're 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.

FCC Part 15
Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the
party responsible for compliance 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:
To ensure safety of users, the FCC has established criteria for the amount of
radio frequency energy that can be safely absorbed by a user or bystander
according to the intended usage of the product. This product has been tested
and found to comply with the FCC criteria. The handset has such a low power
that it does not require testing. It may be safely held against the ear of the user.
The base unit shall be installed & used such that parts of the user’s body other
than the hands should be maintained at a comfortable distance of approximately
20 cm or more.
FCC and ACTA Information
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior

FCC, ACTA and IC Regulations
of Equipment to the Telephone Network adopted by the Administrative Council
for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). We are required to provide you with the
following information.
1. Product identifier and REN information
The label on the back or bottom of this equipment contains, among other things,
an identifier indicating product approval and the Ringer Equivalence Number
(REN). This information must be provided to your local telephone company upon

equipment approved after that date, the product identifier is preceded by “US”
and a colon (:), and the REN is encoded in the product identifier without a decimal
point as the sixth and seventh characters following the colon. For example, the
product identifier US:AAAEQ03T123XYZ would indicate an REN of 0.3.
The REN is used to determine how many devices you may connect to your
telephone line and still have them ring when you are called. In most, but not
all areas, the sum of all RENs should be five (5.0) or less. For more information,
please contact your local telephone company.
2. Connection and use with the nationwide telephone network

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

Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground
connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe
system, if present, are connected together. This precaution may be particularly
important in rural areas.

Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should
contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or electrician as
appropriate.
