the problem, try resetting the
security code (see next section).
If you hear a two-beep signal when you
try to use the handset
• The handset and base are not
communicating properly. You might
be out of range while attempting to
dial. Move closer to the base and try
the call again.
• If moving closer to the base does
not help, the handset and base
might be set to different security

○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
This cordless telephone operates at the
maximum power allowed by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC).
Even so, the handset and base can communicate over only a certain distance —
which can vary with the locations of the
base and handset, the weather, and the
construction of your home or office.
When you make a call, if the handset is at
to a point where the base and handset can
not communicate, the handset will sound
two short beeps, indicating that you are out
of range. Move closer to the base to restore normal operation.
R A N G E
If you move out of range during a phone
conversation, you will hear noise or interference. To improve reception, move closer
to the base.
If you move out of range while on a call,
the phone will be left “off the hook.” To
hang up properly, walk back into range,
periodically pressing P until the
PHONE light goes off.
Changing Channels
This cordless telephone has an advanced
25-channel AutoSelect® feature that minimizes the chance of interference. Every
time you answer or make a call, the
AutoSelect feature searches for and selects
a clear channel.
In the unlikely event that you notice noise
or interference while using the handset:

ANSWERING SYSTEM OPERATION
Ring Select
Listening to Your Messages
Use the Ring Select switch on the back side
of the base unit to select how many times
the line will ring before the system answers
a call. Set to 4 for four rings, or set to TS
for Toll Saver. When you set the system to
TS, the system answers after 4 rings when
you have no new messages, and after 2 rings
when you have new messages.
Before listening to your messages, set the
message volume control so you can hear
the messages. When you press PLAY/STOP the
system announces the number of messages
received. After each message, the system
announces the day and time the message
was received. After playing the last
message, the system announces “End of
messages.”
Play messages — Press and release
PLAY/STOP .
Clear messages — After you’ve
played your messages, the system
automatically resets to record new
messages over the old ones. The old
messages are not cleared until new
ones are recorded.
Save message — Press and release
SAVE to save messages. The light
blinks to show that messages have
been saved.
Rewind — Hold down
MEMO/REWIND while the system is

Answering Calls
When the system answers a call, the caller
hears the announcement you recorded,
followed by a single beep or a series of
beeps. After the final beep, the system
begins recording your caller’s message.
The system hangs up when the caller hangs
up or is silent for 7 seconds or after the
maximum message time of 4 minutes.
NOTE: If there are any messages recorded
on the tape, the caller hears a series of
beeps while the system goes to the end of
the last recorded message. To reduce the
number of beeps and the time it takes before
a caller can leave a message, listen to your
messages frequently, and do not save a
large number of messages.
Bypassing the
Announcement
You might wish to let certain callers know
that they can leave a message without
listening to your announcement. Callers
can press # during the announcement and
then leave a message after the series of beeps.
Message Light
The light above PLAY/STOP indicates how
many messages you’ve received. The light
blinks once for each message, pauses, and
blinks again. For example, if you have 5
messages, the light blinks 5 times, pauses,
then repeats.
Recording a Memo
You can record a memo to be stored as an
incoming message. The memo will be
played back with other messages.
1 Hold down MEMO/REWIND . After
the beep, speak toward the front
of the base.
2 To stop recording, release
