do is choose the location for your handset charger, and plug in the power
supply into an electrical outlet.
MODEL: 5808
DC 9V 200mA
CLASS 2 POWER SOURCE ONLY
Installation and Charge of Battery in Handset
1. Remove the battery cover and place
the battery in the compartment with
the metal contacts aligning, as shown
in the diagram.
2. Replace the battery compartment
cover by sliding it upwards.
3. If the new battery is not already
charged, place the handset in its
charger. and allow it to charge for 12
hours. After initial charge, a
maintenance charge of eight hours
should be sufficient.
6
Battery Life
A fully charged battery provides an average talk time of about seven hours or standby
time of four days.
NOTE: Talk time and standby time may vary depending on operating conditions.
Battery Indicator
Ten minutes before the battery charge level gets too low to operate the handset, an
empty battery icon will start flashing, five short tones are generated and a Low
Battery message is displayed.
If you continue to use the handset without charging or replacing the battery (spare
batteries purchased separately), the handset will turn off automatically when the
battery charge level is no longer sufficient to power up the handset, and the call will be
dropped.
Charging the Handset Battery
After a low battery indication, place the handset in the charger and make sure the
CHARGING light turns on. With the exception of the first charge, the battery typically
takes eight hours to fully charge.
NOTE: If you repeatedly get a low battery indication, even after eight hours of charging,
then the battery should be replaced.
As you register additional 5808 handsets to your 5858 system, they will be assigned
extension numbers in the following order: HANDSET 2, HANDSET 3, HANDSET 4,
and so forth.
Whenever a charged handset battery is installed, the handset will automatically begin
Searching for Base... (if previously registered), or it will prompt you to REGISTER
with the registration guide to register the new handset.
BEFORE USING YOUR HANDSET(S), CAREFULLY PEEL OFF THE
PROTECTIVE FILM COVERING THE DISPLAY.

Headset Operation
Your handset is equipped with a 2.5mm headset jack for use with an optional accessory
headset for handsfree operation. If you choose to use the headset option, you must
obtain a compatible accessory headset. To purchase a headset, contact the Supplier.
Once you have a compatible 2.5mm headset, locate the headset jack on the handset.
Connect the plug on the headset cord to the jack (under a small rubber flag) on the
cordless handset. The plug should fit securely. Do not force the connection.
NOTE:
Whenever a compatible headset is connected
to the cordless handset, the microphone on the
handset will be muted. This is done to limit the
effect of background noise.
Advance Operation
Many compatible headsets have a reversible,
monaural design. This means you can wear
your headset on either ear, leaving one ear free
for other conversations.
Belt Clip
Your phone is also equipped with a detachable
belt clip. Align the pins on the inside edge of
the clip with the notches on the sides of the
Handset. The belt clip should snap securely into
place. Do not force the connection.

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.
11
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, call the Supplier.
The phone doesn't work at all
•
•
•
Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit and the
telephone wall jack.
Make sure the batteries are properly charged. If you get a Low Battery message
or indication, the batteries need charging.
No dial tone
•
•
First try all the suggestions above.
If you still don't hear a dial tone, disconnect the base unit from the telephone jack
and connect a different phone. If there is no dial tone on that phone either, the
problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your local telephone company.
You get noise, static, or a weak signal even when you're near the base
unit
•
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 get noise, static, or a weak signal when you're away from the Base
Unit
•
•
You may be out of range. Either move closer to the base, or relocate the base
unit.
The layout of your home may be limiting the range. Try moving the base unit to
another position.

•
•
Additional Information
•
•
Make sure you have the ringer activated.
Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the base unit and the
telephone jack. Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
