IMPROVING CORDLESS RECEPTION
Follow these guidelines to improve cordless sound quality:
•
Select an area to install the Excursion® 36248 where it is closest to the center of your
home or office. This will improve the operating range of the unit.
Keep the Excursion® 36248 base unit away from electrical equipment. Radio
•
Frequency Interference (RFI) is sometimes generated by these appliances, which can
cause a degradation in cordless reception.
Keep the handset batteries charged as much as possible. Weak handset batteries can
•
limit the range of cordless operation.
MAXIMIZING BATTERY LIFE
Repeated use or recharge of Ni-Cd batteries without periodic full discharge results in
reduced useable charge time. When you notice the usable charge duration decreasing, fully
discharge the Ni-Cd battery and recharge as described:
DISCHARGING
1.
Unplug the telephone line cord from the Excursion® 36248 .
2.
Make sure that the adapter is connected.
3.
Lift the handset out of the base cradle.
4.
Press the TALK button of the handset (IN USE LED indicator should light) and start
discharging.
Once the BATT LOW LED indicator starts flashing, it means that the battery level is low. Let
it fully discharge for 12 hour. Once the Ni-Cd battery is fully discharged, you may now
charge the battery to its full capacity.
CHARGING
1.
Make sure the adapter and telephone line cord is connected to the Excursion® 36248.
2.
Place the handset on the base cradle. The CHARGE LED indicator of the base unit
will light steadily.
3.
Leave the handset charging on the base for 20 hours continuously to get a maximum
charge.
4.
The Excursion® 36248 is now ready for regular use. Discharge and charge the Ni-Cd
battery again once you notice a decrease in the useable charge time.
MAINTENANCE
1.
2.
Your phone should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heaters,
stoves or any other appliance that produces heat.
Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the plastic cabinet. A mild soap will help to remove
grease or oil. Never use polish, solvents, abrasives or strong detergents since these
can damage the finish.

RING ON position to enable the handset ringer.
Check for the telephone line cord connectors at both ends
that they are pushed in firmly until they click.
You may have exceeded the Ringer Equivalence Number
(REN) limit of how many phones can be connected to the
same line. The REN total of all devices (printed on the bottom
label of each unit) should not exceed five (5). Disconnect the
appropriate units to lower the REN total.
Check for the Ni-Cd battery pack for proper connection inside
the battery compartment on the handset.
The handset rechargeable Ni-Cd battery pack may need
charging.
Check for the Ni-Cd battery pack for proper connection inside
the battery compartment on the handset.

from your local phone company for the CIDCW function to
operate properly. Call you local phone company for details.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION
This cordless phone uses radio frequencies to allow mobility. There are certain difficulties in
using radio frequencies with a cordless telephone. While these are normal, the following
could affect the operation of your system.
NOISE: Electric pulse noise is present in most homes at one time or another. This noise is
most intense during electrical storms. Certain kinds of electric equipment such as light
dimmers, fluorescent bulbs, motors, and fans also generate noise pulses. Because radio
frequencies are susceptible to these noise pulses, you may occasionally hear them in your
handset. Generally, they are minor annoyances and should not be interpreted as defects in
your system.
RANGE: Because radio frequencies are used, location of the base unit can affect operating
range. Try several locations in your home or business and pick the one that gives you the
clearest signal.
INTERFERENCE: Some electronic devices operate in and/or generate interference near the
operating frequencies of your cordless telephone. While several protection circuits are used
to prevent unwanted signals, there may be periods when these unwanted signals cause
interference. If interference occurs frequently, it can be minimized or eliminated by relocating
the base unit. You can check for interference before selecting the final base unit location by
plugging in the phone.
AUTOMATIC DIGITAL SECURITY :This system helps protect the privacy of your telephone
conversation from other cordless phones nearby. Whenever the handset is returned to the
base, a new security code between the handset and base is randomly generated (up to 1
million combinations).
NOTE: If replacing the handset battery , the system ID is lost, along with the link between
the handset and base. In order to reestablish the security ID, return the handset to the base
until the CHG (Charge) / IN USE LED indicator lights and a beep is heard.
ADAPTER:
Use only with Class 2 Power Source 9VAC 500 mA.
