Technical Information
HANDSET Controls
Technical Information
1. HANDSET ANTENNA
This cordless telephone 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 alter operation of your system.
2. NEW CALL/MSG(MESSAGE )WAITING LED Indicator: Blinks when recording a new
incoming call or when receiving a Message Waiting signal, if you have subscribed to a
Voice Mail Message service from your local telephone company. (See page 11 ).
Noise
3. Large LCD Screen: Shows call information, phone status, prompts and directory items.
Electrical pulse noise is present in most homes at one time or another. This noise in
most intense during electrical storms. Certain kinds of electrical 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 a minor annoyance and should not be interpreted as
a defect in your system.
Range
Because radio frequency is used, location of the BASE UNIT can affect operating range.
Try several locations in your home or office and pick the one that gives you the clearest
signal to the HANDSET.
Interference
Electronic circuits activate a relay to connect the cordless telephone to your telephone line.
These electronic circuits operate in the radio frequency spectrum. While several protection
circuits are used to prevent unwanted signals, there may be periods when these
unwanted signals enter the BASE UNIT. You may hear clicks or hear the relay activate
while your are not using the HANDSET. If interference occurs frequently, it can be minimized or eliminated by lowering the height of your BASE UNIT ANTENNA or by relocating
the BASE UNIT. You can check for interference before selecting the final BASE UNIT location by plugging in the phone.
NOTICE:
This cordless telephone uses radio communication between the HANDSET and the
BASE UNIT and may not ensure privacy of communication. Other devices, including other
cordless telephones, may interference with the operation of this cordless telephone or
cause noise during operation. Units not containing coded access may be accessed by
other radio communication systems. Cordless telephones must not cause interference to
any licensed radio service.
IMPORTANT
When you hear interference, press the DEL /DEL
button to charge the operating channel.

The BATTERY PACK used in your telephone may develop a condition known as
"MEMORY". Once subjected to a regular short discharging routine, the BATTERY PACK
assumes the discharging pattern it was subjected to. This causes rapid discharging
thereby shortening the BATTERY PACK charge span. If you believe your BATTERY PACK
has developed a "MEMORY "condition, do not charge the HANDSET until the BATT LOW
symbol appears on the LCD Screen. When the BATT LOW symbol appears on the LCD
Screen, charge the HANDSET fully for 12 hours.
