INSTALLING THE SPEAKERPHONE
To make full use of the Speakerphone’s
features, you must connect it to two 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 two 1-line
modular phone jacks using a 2-line
coupler (such as RadioShack Cat.
No. 279-401, not supplied).
Notes:
• The first Speakerphone you connect
to the phone line is automatically set
to Extension 11. Any additional
Speakerphones you connect to the
phone line will ring until you set its
extension number (see “Setting the
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 Station
Extension Numbers” on Page 12).
• You can connect your Speakerphone directly to a single 2-line
modular phone jack.
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 jack to be
installed is RJ14C (for a 2-line
phone jack) or RJ11C (for a 1-line
phone jack).
43-463.fm Page 7 Friday, August 13, 1999 9:06 AM
INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERIES
(+ and –) marked inside the battery
compartment.
The System 212 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 212 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 (two in
the lower slot and one in the upper)
as indicated by the polarity symbols
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, or mount it
on a wall. 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

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 back-up batteries are installed in the Speakerphone.
• 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.
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 212 Two-Line Speakerphone with Intercom 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.

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:
Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.
If you cannot eliminate the interference,
the FCC requires that you stop using
your phone.
LIGHTNING
Your Speakerphone has built-in lightning 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 212 Speakerphone during lightning storms to reduce
the possibility of damage.
• 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.
