TAD-759
Digital Answering System
with 13-Memory Telephone
FEATURES
Your RadioShack TAD-759 Digital Answering System combines a high-quality
answering system with a multi-feature
telephone.
The TAD (telephone answering device)
stores all messages on a computer chip.
This gives you advanced capabilities
over tape-based answering machines.
For example, you can delete an individual message while saving the rest. Because your TAD is fully digital, there are
no tapes to bother with and no tape
mechanisms to wear out.
The TAD-759’s 16-minute memory is
more than enough to meet most users’
needs. And you can operate the TAD759 remotely from a touch-tone phone.
With an optional pocket tone dialer, you
can even use it from a rotary phone.
Remote Operation — lets you use a
touch-tone phone (or rotary phone and
pocket tone dialer) to operate the TAD
while you are away from your home or
office.
Adjustable Ring Selection — lets you
set the TAD-759 to answer the telephone after four or seven rings.
Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary charges when you call longdistance to check your messages.
Programmable Remote Operation
Security Code — lets you set your own
three-digit security code for remote operation.
Message Counter — shows the number of messages.
TAD Features
DELETE — lets you quickly erase messages one at a time or all at once.
Voice Time/Day Stamp — announces
the time and day that each message
was recorded.
Memory Backup — protects stored
messages in case of a power failure.
Memo Recording — lets you leave
messages for yourself or others in your
home or office.
Call Screening — lets you listen to incoming calls before you decide to answer.
Phone Pick-Up Detection — automatically stops the TAD if you answer a call
after the TAD answers.
Room Monitor — lets you listen from a
remote phone to the room where you installed the TAD.
ANSWER Button — lets you set the
TAD to answer or not answer.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your TAD-759 to
conform to federal regulations, and you
can connect it to most telephone lines.
However, each device you connect to
the phone line draws power from the
line. This power draw is the device’s
ringer equivalence number, or REN. The
REN is on the bottom of the TAD.
If you use more than one telephone or
other device on the line, add up all of the
RENs. If the total is more than five, your
telephones might not ring. In rural areas,
a total REN of three might impair ringer
operation. If ringer operation is impaired,
remove a device from the line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. You must, upon request, provide
the FCC registration number and the
REN to your telephone company. Both
numbers are marked on the bottom of
the TAD.
Note: You must not connect the TAD to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• electronic key telephone systems
Your TAD 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 TAD 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
antenna of the radio or TV antenna.
• Increase the distance between the
TAD and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the TAD and the radio or TV.
Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.

PREPARATION
INSTALLING A BACKUP
BATTERY
The TAD requires AC power to operate.
However, if AC power fails or you unplug the TAD-759, a 9-volt battery (not
supplied) saves the messages, time and
day settings, memory numbers, and the
remote operation security code. We recommend a RadioShack alkaline battery.
Note: The telephone operates normally
during a power failure; however, the
TAD cannot answer and record incoming calls without AC power.
Replace the battery when Lo appears
on the message counter. Be sure the
AC adapter’s cord is plugged in while
you replace the battery, so you do not
lose any stored information.
Cautions:
• Always remove an old or weak battery. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
• Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not burn or bury
them.
Follow these steps to install the battery.
MOUNTING THE TAD
Warning: If the TAD’s modular line cord
is connected to a phone line jack, disconnect it before installing a battery.
This reduces the risk of electric shock.
You can place the TAD-759 on a desk,
mount it on a standard wall plate, or
mount it directly on a wall. Select a location that is near both a modular telephone line jack and an AC outlet.
Caution: Use only a fresh battery of the
required size and recommended type.
Notes:
1. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to
unlatch the battery compartment
cover (as shown), then open the
cover.
• Your TAD-759 connects directly to a
modular telephone line jack. If your
telephone wiring does not have a
modular jack, you can update it
yourself using jacks and adapters
available at your local RadioShack
store, or have the telephone company update it for you.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a
wall plate jack).
2. Snap the battery’s terminals to the
connector inside the compartment.
3. Close the cover and press down on
the latch to close it.

you want to change it later.
Testing Stored Emergency
Numbers
If you store an emergency service’s
number (police department, fire department, ambulance) and you want to test
the stored number, make the test call
during the late evening or early morning
hours to avoid peak demand periods.
Remain on the line to explain the reason
for your call.
Chain-Dialing Special Service
Numbers
For quick recall of numbers for special
services (such as alternate long-distance or bank-by-phone), you can store
each group of numbers in its own memory location.
6. Repeat Steps 3–5 (without hanging
up) to store more numbers. Then
hang up the handset when you finish.
When calling special services, dial the
service’s main number first. At the appropriate place in the call, dial the appropriate memory number for the

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your TAD-759, but if you do, the following suggestions might help.
Problem
Suggestion
There is no dial tone.
Check all phone line connections, including the
handset cord.
The incoming message is
incomplete.
Be sure the TAD’s memory is not full.
The caller’s message was longer than 60 seconds.
The caller was silent for more than 8 seconds.
Lo flashes on the message
counter.
The backup battery is weak. Replace the battery

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack TAD-759 Digital Answering System is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your TAD so
you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the TAD dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might
contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the TAD only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage
batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the TAD away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Handle the TAD gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and can cause the TAD to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.
Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your TAD’s electronic parts.
Wipe the TAD with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do
not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean the TAD.
Modifying or tampering with the TAD’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your
TAD is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you
to disconnect your TAD until you have resolved the problem.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your TAD 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 TAD. The telephone
company notifies you of these changes
in advance so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your
telephone services.
22
LIGHTNING
Your TAD 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 TAD.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has
severe electrical storms, we suggest
that you unplug the TAD during storms
to reduce the possibility of damage.
