MAINTENANCE
TAKING CARE OF YOUR TELEPHONE
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with
care.
AVOID ROUGH TREATMENT
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
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment.
For your own safety, use caution when using electric 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 soft cloth slightly dampened with water or a mild soap. Do not use excess water
or cleaning solvents of any kind.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
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.

IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
If you have difficulty operating your phone, the suggestions below should solve the problem.
If you still have difficulty after trying these suggestions,
In the US call:
VTECH COMMUNICATIONS at 1-800-595-9511.
In Canada call:
VTECH ELECTRONICS at 1-800-267-7377.

NO DIAL TONE.
•
First check all the suggestions above.
•
If you still don’t hear a dial tone, disconnect the Base Unit from the telephone jack and

your wiring or local service. Call your local telephone company.
•
Place the Handset in the Base momentarily to re-set the unit. Then press ON to get a line.
•
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 may be out of range. Either move close to the Base, or relocate the Base Unit.
•

second or third floor, or to some other location.
21
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
YOU GET NOISE, STATIC, OR A WEAK SIGNAL EVEN WHEN YOU’RE
NEAR THE BASE UNIT.
IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY

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:
•
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet or on a circuit different from that to which the
receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
FCC Part 68 and ACTA
If this equipment was approved for connection to the telephone network prior to July 23, 2001, it
complies with Part 68 of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules. If the equipment
was approved after that date, it complies with the Part 68 rules and with Technical Requirements
for Connection 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 request. For
equipment approved prior to July 23, 2001, the product identifier is preceded by the
phrase “FCC Reg No.” and the REN is listed separately. For 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

Programming/testing of emergency numbers
If this product has memory dialing locations, you may choose to store police, fire department
and emergency medical service telephone numbers in these locations. If you do, please keep
three things in mind:
a
We recommend that you also write the telephone number on the directory card, so that
you can still dial the emergency number manually if the memory dialing feature doesn’t
work.
b
This feature is provided only as a convenience, and the manufacturer assumes no
responsibility for customer reliance upon the memory feature.
c
Testing the emergency telephone numbers you have stored is not recommended.
However, if you do make a call to an emergency number:
•
You must remain on the line and briefly explain the reason for the call before
hanging up.
•

hours, such as in the early morning or late evening, when the emergency services
tend to be less busy.
IC (Industry Canada)
This telephone is registered for use in Canada.
The term “IC:” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada
technical specifications were met.
Notice:
26
FCC, ACTA AND IC REGULATIONS
This equipment meets the applicable Industry Canada Terminal Equipment Technical
Specifications. This is confirmed by the registration number. The abbreviation, IC, before the
registration number signifies that registration was performed based on a Declaration of Conformity
indicating that Industry Canada technical specifications were met. It does not imply that Industry
Canada approved the equipment.
Notice:
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for this terminal equipment is 0.1. The REN assigned to
each terminal equipment provides an indication of the maximum number of terminals allowed to
be connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may consist of any
combination of devices subject only to the requirement that the sum of the Ringer Equivalence Numbers
of all the devices does not exceed five.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected
to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed
using an acceptable method of connection. The customer should be aware that compliance
with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of services in some situations.
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 telecommunications company cause to request the
user to disconnect the equipment.
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.
Caution :
Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact the
appropriate electrical inspection authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
Your VT9127 is designed to operate at the maximum power allowed by the FCC and IC. This
means your Handset and Base Unit can communicate only over a certain distance - which
will depend on the location of the Base Unit and Handset, weather, and the construction and
layout of your home or office.
