ET-1110
900 MHz 20-Channel
Analog Cordless Telephone
with Caller ID/Call Waiting ID
43-1110.fm Page 2 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:22 AM
FEATURES
Your RadioShack ET-1110 900-MHz 20Channel Analog Cordless Telephone offers the latest advances in cordless
phone technology. It uses the 900 MHz
band, which means less interference and
clear sound, and greater range than 46/
49 MHz cordless telephone. Its cordless
operation lets you handle calls just about
anywhere in your home or office.
The phone can display a caller’s phone
number, name (if available), and the
date and time the call was received. It
can store up to 60 records as provided
by your local phone company to Caller
ID service subscribers.
If you have Call Waiting with Caller ID,
the phone displays incoming caller information for a new call when you are already on the phone.
The ET-1110 has these features:
900 MHz Operation — provides better
sound and less interference than many
other cordless phones.
Caller ID Memory Dialing — lets you
select a phone number stored in Caller
ID memory, then dial it with the touch of
a button.
20 Channels — automatically selects a
clear channel when you make or answer
a call. You can also manually change
channels during a call.
Headset Jack — lets you connect an optional headset (such as RadioShack Cat.
No. 43-195) for hands-free convenience
while you use the phone.
VIP Memory — alerts you with a distinctive ring when someone you have added
to the VIP list calls.
20-Number Memory Dialing — lets you
store 20 numbers in memory for easy dialing.
Review Scrolling — lets you easily
scroll through all information stored in
the ET-1110’s Caller ID memory.
Phone Information Display — lets you
see incoming Caller ID information and
phone numbers as you dial them or recall them from the ET-1110’s memory
and Caller ID records.
Trilingual Messages — lets you set the
phone to display messages in English,
French, or Spanish.
COM-LOK® — ensures that other cordless phone users cannot use your phone
line while the handset is on the base.
Advanced Super CCT Circuitry — provides clarity comparable to that of a corded phone, reduces background noise,
and increases effective operating distance.
Security Access-Protection Code —
helps prevent other cordless phone users from using your phone line while the
handset is off the base.

43-1110.fm Page 4 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:22 AM
Important: Cordless phones such as
this one require AC power to operate.
When the AC power is off, you cannot
dial out or receive incoming calls using
your ET-1110. For this reason, the ET1110 cordless phone should not be your
only telephone. To be safe, you should
also have a phone that does not require
AC power to operate (not a cordless
phone) so you can still make and receive
calls if there is an AC power failure.
Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies as allocated by the FCC.
Even though the access protection code
prevents unauthorized use of your phone
line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a
certain area to unintentionally intercept
your conversations and/or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur
with any cordless phone.
READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
Each device that you connect to the
phone line draws power from the phone
line. We refer to this power draw as the
device’s ringer equivalence number, or
REN. The REN is on the bottom of the
base.
If you are using more than one phone or
other device on the line, add up all the
RENs. If the total is more than five, your
phone 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
This telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC registration number and
the REN to your phone company. These
numbers are on the bottom of the base.
Note: You must not connect your ET1110 to any of the following:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems

PREPARATION
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone on a desk top or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or
mount it directly on the wall. Select a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
• near a telephone line jack
• out of the way of normal activities
• away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors
The base’s location affects the phone’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.
Caution: The supplied AC adapter was designed specifically for your ET-1110. Use
only the supplied adapter.
Note:
• Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your phone
line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks
and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can let the phone
company update the wiring for you. The USOC number of the jack to be installed
is RJ11C (RJ11W if you want to mount it on a wall plate).

CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
To charge the battery pack, simply place
the handset on the base. The CHARGE
indicator on the base lights.
The ET-1110 comes with a rechargeable
nickel-cadmium battery pack in the
handset but not connected. Before using
your phone, you must connect the battery pack and then charge it for about 15
hours.
1. Press down and slide off the compartment cover as shown.
CHARGE
Indicator
Recharge the battery pack when
appears on the handset’s display.
Low Battery Indicator
Notes:
2. Plug the battery pack’s connector
into the socket in the compartment.
The connector fits only one way.
Note: For easier battery pack connection, lift it out of the compartment, insert its connector into the
socket, then replace the battery
pack inside the compartment.
• You can place the handset on the
base face down or face up without
removing the belt clip. If you want to
use the hanging hole on the back of
the handset to place the handset on
the wall-mounted base face-up, remove the belt clip (see “Removing
the Belt Clip” on Page 27). However,
the battey pack will not fully charge
in this position.
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery
pack, the phone might not work and
you might hear an error tone when
you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for
about 6 seconds. This resets the security access protection code.
3. Replace the cover.
13
43-1110.fm Page 14 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:22 AM
• If the CHARGE indicator does not
light when you place the handset on
the base, be sure the battery pack
and AC adapter are correctly and
securely connected.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery pack by keeping the
handset off the base until
appears. Otherwise, the battery pack
loses its ability to fully recharge.
Also, check the charging contacts
on the handset and the base. If the
contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean
them with a pencil eraser.
• To avoid damage to the battery
pack, always recharge the handset
before battery power grows too
weak to light
.
• If you are not going to use your
phone for an extended period of
time, disconnect the battery pack.
This increases the battery pack’s
usable life.
If the battery and AC connections
are correct and secure and the
charging contacts are clean, the battery might be fully charged. This is
not a malfunciton.
• If the battery pack gets completely
discharged or the base loses power
while the handset is away from it,
the security access-protection code
needs to be reset. To reset the security code, place the handset on the
base. If it was the handset that lost
power, leave the handset on the
base to charge the battery pack.
• If the battery pack gets weak during
a call, the handset sounds 4 beeps
every 30 seconds. If this happens,
you cannot make another call on the
phone until you recharge the battery
pack.
14
• The supplied battery pack should
last for about a year. When it loses
its ability to fully recharge, order a
replacement battery pack from your
local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 31).

USING A HEADSET
You can make or answer calls with
hands-free convenience using an optional headset that has a 3/32-inch (2.5 mm)
plug. We recommend RadioShack Cat.
No. 43-195 (not supplied), which is specially designed for use with the ET-1110.
Follow these steps to use a headset.
1. Insert the headset’s plug into the
jack on the top of the handset.
REMOVING THE BELT
CLIP
The belt clip on the back of the handset
lets you hang on the belt for easy portability. But to use the hanging hole on the
back of the handset to place the handset
on the wall-mounted base face-up, you
must remove the belt clip.
Insert a flat-blade screwdriver into either
side of the belt clip, then pull off it.
To replace the belt clip, insert either tab
of the belt clip into one slot of the handset, then snap the other tab into other
slot of the handset.
2. Place the headset on your head with
the earpiece over either ear and adjust the microphone boom until it is
about even with your chin.
3. Hang the belt blip on your belt.
4. Make or receive calls as you would
normally.
Notes:
• Connecting a headset disconnects
the handset’s earpiece and microphone.
• If you place the handset on the base
to recharge it while the headset is
connected, be sure the handset
seats properly.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your telephone, but if you do, the
following suggestions might help.
Problem
The handset does not work.
Suggestion
Move the handset closer to the base.
Be sure the phone line cord and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected.
Be sure the battery pack is connected and
charged.
Fully extend and raise the base’s antenna
to a vertical position.
Return the handset to the base for 6 seconds, then try again.
Volume drops or you hear unusual
sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on
the same line. Hang up the other phone.
Call is noisy.
Do not place the base near appliances or
large metal objects.
Keep the handset away from interference
sources such as computers, remote control toys, wireless alarm systems, wireless
intercoms and room monitors, fluorescent
lights, and electrical appliances. If the interference is severe, turn off the interfering
device.
Press CHANNEL to switch to another channel.
Hang up and redial the number.
Phone dials more than 7 digits when
dialing a local phone number from a
Caller ID record.
Store the local area code (see “Setting the
Area Code” on Page 16).
The handset’s range decreases.
Fully extend and raise the base’s antenna
to a vertical position.
Return the handset to the base to recharge the battery pack.
Be sure the base’s antenna is not touching
a metal surface.
28
43-1110.fm Page 29 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:22 AM
Problem
Receiver sound flutters or fades.
Suggestion
Be sure the battery pack is charged.
Fully extend and raise the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Can receive calls, but cannot make
calls.
Set T/P correctly for the type of service
you have (see “Setting the Dialing
Mode” on Page 15).
If you still have problems, disconnect the phone. If other phones on the same line work
properly, the fault is in this phone or its installation. If you cannot find the problem, take
your ET-1110 to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
29
43-1110.fm Page 30 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:22 AM
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your ET-1110 900 MHz 20-Channel Analog Cordless Telephone is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your
phone so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the phone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids can
contain minerals that corrode the electronic circuits.
Handle the phone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and cause the phone to work improperly.
Use and store the phone only in normal temperature environments.
Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and
distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the phone away from dust and dirt which can cause premature
wear of parts.
Wipe the phone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to
clean your phone.
Modifying or tampering with the phone’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your
phone 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 phone until you have resolved the problem.

REPLACING THE
BATTERY PACK
If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 13, the battery pack should last
about one year. If the battery does not
hold a charge for more than 2 hours after
an overnight charge, replace the battery
with a new 3.6 volt, 600 milliamp battery
with a connector that fits the socket in the
battery compartment. You can order a
replacement battery pack through your
local RadioShack store.
Install the new battery pack as described
below, then charge the battery pack for
about 15 hours (see “Connecting and
Charging the Battery Pack” on Page 13).
Note: To avoid losing information stored
in memory, try to install and begin charging the new battery pack within 2–3 minutes.
1. Press down and slide off the cover.
2. Gently pull on the battery pack connector to disconnect it, then remove
the battery pack.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
pack of the same size and type, with
the proper connector.
• Do not dispose of the battery pack in
a fire because it might explode.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack.
• Be careful not to short the battery
pack by touching it with conducting
materials, such as rings, bracelets,
and keys. The battery pack or conductor might overheat and burn.
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
Important: This product contains a rechargeable nickel cadmium battery pack.
At the end of the battery pack’s useful
life, it must be recycled or disposed of
properly. Contact your local, county, or
state hazardous waste management authorities for information on recycling or
disposal programs in your area. Some
options that might be available are: municipal curb-side collection, drop-off boxes at retailers such as your local
RadioShack store, recycling collection
centers, and mail-back programs.
3. Plug the new battery pack’s connector into the socket and place the battery pack into the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your phone
causes problems on the phone line, the
phone company can temporarily discontinue your service. If this happens, the
phone company attempts to notify you in
advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you as
soon as possible and advises you of your
right to file a complaint with the FCC.
Also, the phone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this telephone. 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 phone might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating
properly. To determine whether your
phone is causing the interference, turn
off your phone. If the interference goes
away, your phone is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference
by:
• Moving your phone away from the
receiver
• Connecting your phone to an AC
outlet that is on a different electrical
circuit from the receiver
• Contacting your local RadioShack
store for help
32
If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your phone.
Some cordless telephones operate on
frequencies that may cause interference
to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or
prevent such interference, the base of
the cordless telephone should not be
placed near or on top of a TV or VCR.
LIGHTNING
Your telephone has built-in lightning protection to reduce the risk of damage from
surges in telephone line and power line
current. This lightning protection meets
or exceeds FCC requirements. However,
lightning striking the telephone or power
lines can damage your telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that
you unplug your phone during storms to
reduce the possibility of damage.
