Connecting to the telephone lines
Your 2-Line GIGAPHONE will work fine even if you only have one telephone
line. We recommend connecting the modular telephone cord to the jack labeled
LINE 1 / L1 + L2, located on the bottom of the Base Unit. Here are steps for
connecting 2 lines:
If you have 2 Lines coming out of a Single Wall Jack:
Connect a 4-wire (RJ-14) modular phone cord between the wall jack and the
phone jack labeled L1 / L1 + L2.
If you have 2 Lines, each coming out of Separate Wall Jacks:
Connect a modular phone cord from the wall jack you want to designate as
your LINE 1, to the LINE 1 / L1 + L2 jack on the bottom of the Base Unit. Next,
connect a phone cord from the remaining wall jack to the LINE 2 jack on the
Base Unit.
Data Port
Your 2-Line GIGAPHONE on the back of the Base Unit. This port provides an
easy way to connect your fax machine, laptop computer, modem or other
telephone device for direct access to LINE 2.
The Data Port only provides access to Line 2, so you must have an active line
connected to the LINE 2 jack on the bottom of the Base Unit. Connect a
modular phone cord from the Data Port (look for the small door marked DATA
on the back of the Base Unit) to your fax, laptop, etc.
NOTE: While the Data Port is in use, accidental use of Line 2 by a parallel
phone, your 20-2431, or a Call Waiting ID alert may interrupt the data transmission.

The original Handset that is shipped with your GIGAPHONE system will be
automatically registered to the Base. This Handset is HANDSET 1.
As you register additional Handsets to the system, they will be assigned
extension numbers in the following order: HANDSET 2, HANDSET 3,
HANDSET 4, etc.
Whenever a Handset battery pack is installed, the Handset will automatically
begin SEARCHING FOR BASE (if previously registered), or it will prompt
you to ENTER BASE ID to register the new Handset.

Spare Battery Charger/Power Backup Function
The GIGAPHONE uses the spare battery charger in the Base Unit to provide
operational backup in the event of a power failure. With the a fully charged
battery pack in the spare battery charger, you will still be able to place a receive
calls from the handset for up to 5 hours.
The spare battery pack can also be used to replace a drained handset battery,
ensuring uninterrupted use.

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.
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.

Maintenance
In Case Of Difficulty
Your GIGAPHONE cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must
be treated with care.
If you have difficulty operating your phone, the suggestions below should solve the
problem. If you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions, call VTECH
Communications at 1-800-595-9511. In Canada, call VTECH Electronics at 1-800267-7377.
Avoid rough treatment
The Phone Doesn't Work At All
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.
•
Electrical storms
•
•
Taking Care Of Your Telephone
Make sure the Power Cord is plugged
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 BATTERY' message
is shown, the battery pack needs charging.
Is the Handset registered to the Base? See Registration.
No Dial Tone
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment.
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.
For your own safety, use caution when using electric appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
You Get Noise, Static, Or A Weak Signal Even When You're
Near The Base Unit
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.
•
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.
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
•
•
