such as near a bath tub, wash bowl,
kitchen sink, laundry tub or swimming
pool, or in a wet basement or shower.
5. Do not place this product on an
unstable table, shelf, stand or other
unstable surfaces.
6. Slots and openings in the back or
bottom of the telephone base and
handset are provided for ventilation.
To protect them from overheating,
these openings must not be blocked
by placing the product on a soft
surface such as a bed, sofa or
rug. This product should never be
placed near or over a radiator or heat
register. This product should not be
placed in any area where proper
ventilation is not provided.
7. This product should be operated
only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If
you are not sure of the type of power
supply in your home or office, consult
your dealer or local power company.
8. Do not allow anything to rest on
the power cord. Do not install this
product where the cord may be
walked on.
9. Never push objects of any kind into
this product through the slots in the
telephone base or handset because
they may touch dangerous voltage
points or create a short circuit. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the product.
10. To reduce the risk of electric shock,
do not disassemble this product,
but take it to an authorized service
facility. Opening or removing parts of
the telephone base or handset other
than specified access doors may
expose you to dangerous voltages or
other risks. Incorrect reassembling
can cause electric shock when the
product is subsequently used.
11. Do not overload wall outlets and
extension cords.
12. Unplug this product from the wall
outlet and refer servicing to an
authorized service facility under the
following conditions:
• When the power supply cord or
plug is damaged or frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled onto the
product.
• If the product has been exposed
to rain or water.
• If the product does not operate
normally by following the
operating instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are covered
by the operation instructions.

common event associated with the
closing of any electrical circuit. The
user should not plug the phone
into a power outlet, and should
not put a charged handset into
the cradle, if the phone is located
in an environment containing
concentrations of flammable or
flame-supporting gases, unless there
is adequate ventilation. A spark in
such an environment could create a
fire or explosion. Such environments
might include: medical use of
oxygen without adequate ventilation;
industrial gases (cleaning solvents;
gasoline vapors; etc.); a leak of
natural gas; etc.

Precautions for users of
implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to
digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC
(WTR), an independent research entity,
led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the
interference between portable wireless
telephones and implanted cardiac
pacemakers. Supported by the U.S.
Food and Drug Administration, WTR
recommends to physicians that:
•
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at
least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones
directly over the pacemaker, such as in
a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at
the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any
risk to bystanders with pacemakers
from other persons using wireless
telephones.
About cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make
a cordless telephone convenient
create some limitations. Telephone
calls are transmitted between the
telephone base and the cordless
handset by radio waves, so there is a
•
•
possibility that the cordless telephone
conversations could be intercepted
by radio receiving equipment within
range of the cordless handset. For
this reason, you should not think of
cordless telephone conversations as
being as private as those on corded
telephones.
Electrical power: The telephone
base of this cordless telephone must
be connected to a working electrical
outlet. The electrical outlet should not
be controlled by a wall switch. Calls
cannot be made from the cordless
handset if the telephone base is
unplugged, switched off or if the
electrical power is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some
cordless telephones operate
at frequencies that may cause
interference to televisions and
VCRs. To minimize or prevent
such interference, do not place
the telephone base of the cordless
telephone near or on top of a TV or
VCR. If interference is experienced,
moving the cordless telephone farther
away from the TV or VCR often
reduces or eliminates the interference.
Rechargeable batteries: Exercise
care in handling batteries in order
not to create a short circuit with
conducting material such as rings,
bracelets and keys. The battery or
conductor may overheat and cause
harm. Observe proper polarity
between the battery and the battery
charger.
Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable
batteries: Dispose of these batteries
in a safe manner. Do not burn or
puncture the battery. Like other
batteries of this type, if burned or
punctured, they could release caustic
material which could cause injury.

Bluetooth
Your new DS6621 telephone system
with Bluetooth wireless technology has
the following features:
• Pair and connect up to a maximum
of two cell phones with the telephone
base to make and receive cell calls.
Only one cell phone can be active on
a call at a time.
• Make and receive calls using your
cell phone plan while utilizing the
ease and comfort of your home
telephone system.
• Receive phonebook entries from your
cell phone.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
• Refer to the user's manual of your
Bluetooth enabled cell phone for
more information about how that
device uses Bluetooth connectivity.
• Bluetooth wireless technology
operates within a short range (a
maximum of approximately 30 feet)
from the telephone base. Keep
connected cell phones within this
range. For optimal performance,
keep your cell phone within 15 feet
of the telephone base while using the
DS6621 cell line.
• If your cell phone has poor reception
in your home, the DS6621 cannot
improve the reception. However, if
there is a location in your house with
better reception, you can leave your
cell phone at that location while using
the DS6621 cell line.
• If you experience poor sound quality,
place your cell phone closer to the
DS6621 to ensure strong Bluetooth
signal strength. Make sure there are
no physical obstacles between the
DS6621 and the cell phone, such as
large furniture or thick walls.
• Charge your cell phone while it
is connected to the telephone
base. Your cell phone's battery will
discharge faster while it is connected
to the telephone base via Bluetooth
wireless technology.
• Monitor your cell phone's usage
because minutes are deducted from
your cellular plan for the duration of
all cell calls.
Refer to Bluetooth setup to learn how
to set up and manage your Bluetooth
enabled devices. Refer to Telephone
operation on how to operate your
Bluetooth devices with your new
DS6621 telephone system with
Bluetooth wireless technology. Refer
to Troubleshooting if you experience
difficulty using the telephone system.

yourself or others using the same
answering system. You can record your
own memos using a system handset.
Each message can be up to 3 minutes
in length. Play and delete them in the
same way as incoming messages (see
Message playback).
You can use your answering system and
voicemail service together by setting
your answering system to answer before
voicemail service answers as described
below. To learn how to program your
voicemail settings, contact your
telephone service provider.
If you are on a call, or if the answering
system is busy recording a message
and you receive another call, the second
caller can leave a voicemail message.
To record a memo:
1. Press MENU when the phone is not
in use.
2. Press or to scroll to Answering
sys, and then press SELECT.
3. Press or to scroll to Record

4. The system announces, “Record after
the tone. Press STOP when you are
done.” After the tone, speak towards
the microphone.
5. Press 5 to stop recording. The system
announces, “Recorded.”
Set your answering system to answer
calls at least two rings earlier than
your voicemail service is set to answer.
For example, if your voicemail service
answers after six rings, set your
answering system to answer after four
rings. Some voicemail service providers
may program the delay before answering
calls in seconds instead of rings. In this
case, allow six seconds per ring when
determining the appropriate setting.
NOTES
• The system will announce “Memory is full”
if you record a memo when the memory
is full.
• Memos shorter than two seconds are not
recorded.

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 the telephone base
near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause
power surges harmful to electronic
equipment. For your own safety, take
caution when using electrical appliances
during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic
casing that should retain its luster for
many years. Clean it only with a dry
non-abrasive cloth. Do not use
dampened cloth or cleaning solvents of
any kind.
My telephone
does not work
at all.
Make sure the telephone
base is installed properly,
and battery is installed
and charged correctly.
For optimum daily
performance, return the
handset to the telephone
base after use.
The display
shows No line.
I cannot hear
the dial tone.
Disconnect the
telephone line cord from
your telephone and
connect it to another
telephone. If there is
no dial tone on that
other telephone either,
then the telephone line
cord may be defective.
Try installing a new
telephone line cord.
If changing telephone
line cord does not
help, the wall jack (or
the wiring to this wall
jack) may be defective.
Contact your telephone
service provider.
You may be using a new
cable or VoIP service,
the existing telephone
jacks in your home may
no longer work. Contact
your service provider for
solutions.
44
I cannot dial
out.
Make sure there is a dial
tone before dialing. It is
normal if the handset
takes a second or two
to synchronize with the
telephone base before
producing a dial tone.
Wait an extra second
before dialing.
I hear other
calls when
using the
telephone.
Disconnect the telephone
base from the telephone
wall jack. Plug in a different
telephone. If you still hear
other calls, the problem is
probably in the wiring or
telephone service. Contact
your telephone service
provider.
Eliminate any
background noise.
Mute the handset
before dialing, or dial
from another room in
your home with less
background noise.
I hear noise on
the cordless

diminution de sa performance.
13. Évitez d’utiliser un téléphone (autre
qu’un sans fil) pendant un orage.
Les éclairs peuvent être à l’origine
d’une électrocution.
14. N’utilisez pas le téléphone pour
rapporter une fuite de gaz à
proximité de la fuite. En certaines
circonstances, une flammèche
pourrait être provoquée lorsque
l’adaptateur est branché à une
prise de courant, ou lorsque le
combiné est déposé sur le socle.
Ceci est un événement commun
associé à la fermeture d’un circuit
électrique. L’utilisateur ne devrait pas
brancher le téléphone à une prise de
courant, et ne devrait pas déposer
le combiné chargé sur le socle, si
le téléphone se trouve à proximité
d’un endroit comportant des
concentrations de gaz inflammables,
à moins que la ventilation soit
adéquate. Une flammèche dans
un tel endroit pourrait provoquer
un incendie ou une explosion.
De tels environnements peuvent
comprendre: des endroits où l’on
utilise de l’oxygène médical sans
51
ventilation adéquate; des gaz
industriels (dissolvants de nettoyage,
des vapeurs d’essence, etc.); une
fuite de gaz naturel, etc.
15. Ne placez que le combiné de votre
téléphone près de votre oreille
lorsqu’en mode de conversation.
16. Ces adaptateurs ont été conçus pour
être orientés en position verticale
ou montés au sol. Les broches ne
sont pas conçues pour maintenir
l’adaptateur en place si celui-ci est
barnché dans une prise au plafond
ou sous une table/ armoire.
CONSERVEZ CES INSTRUCTIONS
Pile
• MISE EN GARDE : N’utilisez que la
pile incluse.
• Ne jetez pas la pile au feu. Vérifiez
les instructions spécifiques de mise
aux rebus auprès des autorités
locales.
• N’ouvrez pas et ne mutilez pas la
pile. L’électrolyte qui s’en échapperait
est corrosif et pourrait causer des
brûlures ou des blessures aux yeux
ou à la peau. L’électrolyte est toxique
si avalé.
• Soyez prudents lorsque vous
manipulez les piles afin d’éviter les
courts-circuits provoqués par des
matériaux conducteurs.
• Rechargez la pile incluse avec cet
appareil, selon les instructions et
limites spécifiées dans ce guide
d’utilisation.
Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés
dans l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (s’applique
uniquement aux téléphones numériques
sans fil):
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology
Research, LLC (WTR)’, une firme
de recherche indépendante, a mené
une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des
interférences entre les téléphones
sans fil portatifs et les stimulateurs
cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme.
Appuyée par l’Administration des
aliments et drogues (FDA) des ÉtatsUnis, la firme WTR recommande aux
médecins:
Avis aux détenteurs de stimulateurs
cardiaques
• Ils doivent tenir le téléphone sans fil
à une distance d’au moins six pouces
du stimulateur cardiaque.
• Ils ne doivent PAS placer le téléphone
sans fil directement sur le stimulateur
cardiaque, tel que dans une poche
de chemise, lorsque celui-ci est en
marche.
• Ils doivent utiliser le téléphone sans
fil en l’appuyant sur l’oreille qui se
trouve dans la direction opposée au
stimulateur cardiaque.
L’étude effectuée par l’organisme WRS
n’a pas identifié de risque pour les
détenteurs de simulateurs cardiaques
causés par les gens qui utilisent un
téléphone sans fil à proximité de ceux-ci.
À propos des téléphones sans fil
• Alimentation électrique: Les mêmes
caractéristiques qui constituent
des avantages pour les téléphones
sans fil affichent également des
restrictions. Les appels téléphoniques
sont transmis entre le combiné sans
fil et le socle par le biais d’ondes
radio ; il y a donc la possibilité que
vos conversations téléphoniques
sans fil soient interceptées par
des équipements de réception
radio se trouvant dans la portée du
combiné sans fil. Pour cette raison,
vous ne devez pas percevoir les

communications téléphoniques sans fil
comme étant aussi confidentielles.
Alimentation électrique: Le socle
de ce téléphone sans fil doit être
branché à une prise électrique
fonctionnelle. La prise électrique
ne doit pas être contrôlée par un
interrupteur mural. Les appels ne
pourront pas être effectués du
combiné sans fil si le socle est
débranché ou mis hors tension ou si
le courant est coupé.
Possibilité d’interférences aux
téléviseurs: Certains téléphones
sans fil fonctionnent sur des
fréquences pouvant causer des
interférences aux téléviseurs et aux
magnétoscopes. Pour réduire ou
prévenir de telles interférences, ne
placez pas le socle du téléphone
sans fil près ou sur un téléviseur ou
magnétoscope. S’il y a présence de
parasites, il est conseillé d’éloigner
le téléphone sans fil du téléviseur
ou du magnétoscope afin de réduire
possiblement les interférences.
Piles rechargeables: Manipulez
les piles avec soin afin de ne pas
les court-circuiter avec des bagues,
bracelets ou clés. Les piles ou le
conducteur peut surchauffer et
causer des blessures. Respectez la
polarité adéquate entre la pile et le
chargeur.
Les bloc-piles rechargeables à
l’hydrure métallique de nickel:
Jetez ces blocs-piles de manière
écologique et sécuritaire. Ne les
incinérez pas et ne les percez pas.
Tel que les autres piles de ce type,
elles pourraient dégager une matière
toxique qui peut causer des blessures
corporelles si elles sont brûlées ou
percées.
