FEATURES
Your RadioShack System 612 4-Line
Speakerphone gives you a complete
four-line telephone system with the
most advanced features available.
You can connect up to four telephone
numbers to up to 12 different System
612 Speakerphones and use each
phone as an extension telephone station for making and receiving calls.
Note: Adding another type of telephone device to the same telephone
lines used by your System 612 might
cause the System 612’s features (and
the added phone’s features) to not
work properly.
Redial and Auto Redial — lets you
quickly dial the last-dialed number
with the press of a button, or set that
station to automatically redial the last
dialed number up to ten times, so you
can concentrate on your work instead
of having to repeatedly dial a number
until you get an answer.
Conference Calling — lets you conduct 3-way conversations with two
callers or with one caller and one other station at the same time.
Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone
services such as call waiting.
The System 612’s features include:
Four-Line Telephone System — lets
you connect the Speakerphone to up
to four telephone lines.
Liquid Crystal Display — displays
the date, time, call time, the phone or
extension number you dialed, and other helpful information.
Built-In Intercom with All Call Paging — lets you call an individual station, or page all stations at the same
time.
DND (Do Not Disturb) — lets you
block all incoming and intercom calls
and pages so your current call is not
interrupted.
Hold Button — lets you put a call on
hold, so you can answer another call
or page an extension.
Memory Dialing — lets you store up
to 40 telephone numbers in memory
so you can quickly dial them by pressing only one or two number buttons.
Speakerphone — allows hands-free
telephone conversations.
Pulse/Tone Option — lets you use
your phone with either type of service.
Hearing Aid Compatible — lets you
use your telephone with hearing aids
that have a T (telephone) switch.

INSTALLING THE SPEAKERPHONE
To fully use the Speakerphone’s features, you must connect it to two separate telephone lines, each with its own
telephone number. However, you can
connect it to a single line.
• If you do not have 2-line phone
jacks, you can use 1-line modular
phone jacks or combine up to four 1line modular phone jacks using 2line couplers (such as RadioShack
Cat. No. 279-401, not supplied).
Notes:
• If you connect two or more Speakerphones, they must all be connected
to the same Line 1 telephone number.
• The first Speakerphone you connect
to Line 1 is automatically set to Extension 11. Any additional Speakerphones you connect to Line 1 will
ring and display EXT 00 until you
set a new extension number (see
“Setting the Speakerphones’ Station
Extension Numbers” on Page 12).
• You must connect the Speakerphone to the telephone lines before
you plug in its AC adapter. Otherwise, each station will have the
same extension number and the
paging and intercom features will
not work until you properly set all extensions (see “Setting the Speakerphones’ Station Extension Numbers” on Page 12).
• You can connect your Speakerphone directly to one or two 2-line
modular phone jacks.
6
• If your phone line jacks are not modular jacks, you can update the wiring
yourself, using jacks and adapters
available at your local RadioShack
store. Or, you can have the phone
company update the wiring for you.
• The USOC number of the two-line
jack to be installed is RJ14C (or
RJ14W for a wall plate jack). The
USOC number for a single-line jack
is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate
jack).

INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERIES
symbols (+ and –) marked inside the
battery compartment.
The System 612 requires AC power to
operate. However, if AC power fails or
you unplug the speakerphone, the three
AAA backup batteries (not supplied)
save stored information. We recommend you use alkaline batteries, such
as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-555.
Cautions:
• Always use fresh batteries of the required size and type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or
rechargeable batteries of different
capacities.
• Disconnect the System 612 from the
phone line(s) before replacing the
backup batteries.
Notes:
• To avoid losing stored information
when replacing the batteries, leave
the AC adapter plugged in, and
have fresh batteries ready to install
before removing the old ones.
• Replace the batteries when BATT
appears.
1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove
the screw from the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.
2. Install three AAA batteries (not supplied) as indicated by the polarity
3. Replace the cover and the screw.
Cautions:
• Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
• Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly.
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the Speakerphone on a
on a desk top, shelf, or table, mount it directly on a wall, or mount it on a standard wall plate. Select a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
• near the desired telephone line
jack(s)
• out of the way of normal activities
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors

call during the late evening or early
morning hours to avoid peak demand periods. Also, remain on the line to explain
the reason for your call.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your Speakerphone, but if you
do, these suggestions might help:
• Be sure the Speakerphone is properly connected to the telephone
line(s).
• Be sure TONE/PULSE is correctly
set.
• Be sure the AC adapter is properly
connected.
• Be sure you have connected the
same telephone number to the
same line at every station.
• Be sure fresh batteries are installed
in the Speakerphone.
• If your Speakerphone does not work
or works poorly, check its connection to the phone line. Phone calls
are automatically switched and routed through complex equipment. You
will occasionally connect to a weak
line. In some cases you might have
to hang up and dial the number
again.
• If you have problems completing a
call using redial or memory dialing,
try manually dialing the phone number. You might have made a mistake
when you dialed or stored the number.
26
If you still have problems, disconnect the
Speakerphone. If other phones on the
same line function properly, the problem
is in the Speakerphone or its installation.
If you are unable to locate the problem,
take the Speakerphone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack System 612 4-Line Speakerphone is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for the Speakerphone so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the Speakerphone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the Speakerphone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause it to work improperly.
Use and store the Speakerphone only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices
and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the Speakerphone away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Wipe the Speakerphone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the system.
Modifying or tampering with the Speakerphone’s internal components can cause a
malfunction and might invalidate your Speakerphone’s warranty and void your FCC
authorization to operate it. If your Speakerphone is not performing as it should, take it
to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the phone
lines, the phone company might ask you to disconnect your Speakerphone until you
have resolved the problem.
27
43-461.fm Page 28 Friday, August 13, 1999 8:52 AM
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW
In the unlikely event that your Speakerphone causes problems on the telephone line, the telephone company
attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the telephone company notifies you as soon as
possible and advises you of your right to
file a complaint with the FCC.
Also, the telephone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this system. The telephone
company notifies you of these changes
in advance so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your
telephone service.
Your Speakerphone complies with the
limits for a Class B digital device as
specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules.
These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in
a residential area. However, your
Speakerphone might cause TV or radio
interference even when it is operating
properly.
To eliminate interference, you can try
one or more of the following corrective
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
radio or TV antenna.
• Increase the distance between the
Speakerphone and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the Speakerphone and the
radio or TV.
28
Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.
The Service Order Code (SOC) is 9.0F,
the Facility Interface Code (FIC) is
O2LS2.
This equipment is capable of providing
users access to interstate providers of
operator services through the use of access codes. Modification of this equipment by call aggregators to block
access to dialing codes is a violation of
the Telephone Operator Consumers Act
of 1990.
LIGHTNING
Your Speakerphone has built-in protection circuits to reduce the risk of damage
from surges in telephone and power line
current. These protection circuits meet
or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or
power lines can damage your system.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, to reduce the possibility of
damage if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we recommend
you unplug the System 612 Speakerphone during lightning storms to reduce
the possibility of damage.

The backup batteries hold the setup selections in memory as long as the batteries are fully charged. If the date, time,
and extension number do not appear on
the display after you re-connect a
speakerphone, replace the batteries,
then repeat the steps in “Setting the
Speakerphone’s
Station
Extension
Numbers” and “Setting the Dialing
Mode” on Page 12, and “Setting the
Date and Time” on Page 13.
