TAD-799
Fully Digital Telephone Answering System
with Day/Time Voice Stamp
43-799.fm Page 2 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
FEATURES
Your RadioShack TAD-799 Fully Digital
Telephone Answering System stores all
messages on a computer chip — there
are no tape mechanisms to wear out and
no tapes to bother with. This gives you
capabilities not available in tape-based
answering machines. For example, you
can delete individual messages without
listening to every one.
The TAD-799’s 16-minute memory capacity lets you store more messages
than many other TADs (telephone answering devices). Its unique, space-saving design makes it ideal for home and
office use. Your TAD’s remote control
features let you retrieve messages from
almost any touch-tone phone. With an
optional pocket tone dialer, you can
even use it from a rotary phone.
Your TAD’s features include:
Voice Day/Time Stamp — announces
the day and time when each message
was recorded.
Selectable 3-Digit Remote Operation
Security Code — helps prevent unauthorized remote operation.
Digital Outgoing Message — gives
you a clear outgoing message than can
be up to 60 seconds long.
Memory Backup — protects messages
stored in memory in case of a power
failure.
Automatic Toll Saver — answers the
phone after two rings when you have
new messages. Otherwise, it answers
after four rings. This lets you hang up
before the TAD answers to avoid charges when you call by long-distance to
check your messages.
Room Monitor — lets you listen from a
remote phone to the room where your
TAD is located.
Call Screening — you can listen to incoming calls so you can decide whether
or not to answer.
Call/Message Counter — displays the
number of messages recorded.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
We have designed your TAD-799 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 it. This
power draw is the device’s Ringer Equivalence Number, or REN. The REN is
shown on the bottom of the TAD.
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.
4
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

INSTALLATION
CHOOSING A LOCATION
Select a location that is near a modular
telephone jack and an AC outlet.
Notes:
• Your TAD-799 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).
Caution: The supplied AC adapter was
designed specifically for your TAD-799.
Use only the supplied adapter.
6
INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERY
The TAD requires AC power to operate.
However, if AC power fails, or you unplug the TAD, a 9-volt battery (not supplied) provides backup power so the
TAD can maintain the correct time and
memory information. We recommend
you use an alkaline battery, available at
your local RadioShack store.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the
required size and recommended
type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries,
different types of batteries.
Follow these steps to install the battery.
1. Use a flat-blade screwdriver to
unlatch the battery compartment
cover (as shown), then slide the
cover in the direction of the arrow
and lift it off.
43-799.fm Page 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
2. Snap the battery’s terminals to the
connector inside the compartment.
CONNECTING TO THE
TELEPHONE LINE
To connect the TAD to the phone line,
plug one end of the supplied modular
cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back
of the TAD. Then plug the other end into
a modular phone jack.
3. Replace the cover.
When Lo and the two-digit number of
calls in memory alternately flash on the
display, replace the battery. When you
replace the battery, be sure the TAD is
connected to AC power so you do not
lose any stored information.
Cautions:
You can also connect a telephone to the
TEL SET jack on the back of the TAD using a second modular cord (not supplied).
• Dispose of old batteries promptly
and properly. Do not burn or bury
them.
• Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals
that can destroy electronic parts.
7
43-799.fm Page 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
CONNECTING TO POWER
Insert the supplied adapter’s barrel plug
into the AC 9V jack on the back of the
TAD. Then plug the AC adapter’s other
end into a standard AC outlet.
Caution: You must use a Class II power
source that supplies 9 volts AC and delivers at least 400 mA. Its center tip must
be set to positive and its plug must fit the
TAD’s AC 9V jack. The supplied adapter
meets these specifications. Using an
adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage athetoid or the
adapter.
When you first connect power, _ _
flashes on the display, then the TAD
runs a self-test. You cannot operate the
TAD during this test. When the test is
complete, the TAD beeps once, then
Lo flashes.

PREPARATION
SETTING THE DAY AND
TIME
Follow these steps to set the day and
time so the TAD records the correct day
and time of the call with each phone
message.
Notes:
• To avoid having to reset the time if
AC power is lost, we recommend
you install a battery before you set
the day and time.
• If you do not complete any step
within 8 seconds, the TAD sounds a
three-tone beep and stops setting
the day and time. Start over at Step

beeps. The TAD announces, “Sunday,” and 01 appears on the display.
Note: If necessary, adjust VOLUME
on the right side of the TAD to the
desired listening level.
2. To change the day of the week,
repeatedly press REPEAT to move
backward or SKIP to move forward
until the TAD announces the
desired day of the week.
3. Press STOP. The TAD beeps once
and announces the time format,
“AM” or “PM.”
4. To change the hour, repeatedly
press REPEAT until you hear the
desired hour.
5. Press STOP. The TAD beeps once
to confirm the hour setting.
6. To change the minutes, repeatedly
press REPEAT until you hear the
desired minute setting.
7. Press STOP to confirm the settings.
The TAD beeps and announces the
day and time.
To check the current day and time at
any time, press SET.

43-799.fm Page 10 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
RECORDING THE
OUTGOING MESSAGE
Before you can set the TAD to answer
calls, you must record the outgoing message (OGM) the caller hears when the
TAD answers a call.
Note: The maximum outgoing message
length is 60 seconds.
1. Hold down ANNC. The TAD beeps.
Note: When memory is full, the
TAD displays FL and announces,
“Memory is full,” and you cannot
record the outgoing message.
Delete old messages to make room
in memory (see “Erasing Messages” on Page 14).
2. Speak in a normal voice about 8
inches (20 cm) away from the front
of the TAD. Ask for the caller’s
name, phone number, and message. The display counts down the
seconds as you record.
10
Hint: Do not tell callers that you are
not home. Instead, say that you
cannot come to the phone right
now.
3. When you finish recording, release
ANNC. The TAD beeps and repeats
the outgoing message so you can
verify it.
To play the outgoing message at any
time, press ANNC. If no outgoing message is recorded, the TAD says “No announcement.”

REMOTE OPERATION
While you are away from your home or
office, you can use a touch-tone phone
or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
tone dialer (available at your local RadioShack store) to enter your remote
operation security code and do any of
the following:
• set the TAD to answer or not
answer calls
• listen to your messages
• record a new announcement
• delete messages
• monitor the room where the TAD is
located
Note: You cannot remotely operate the
TAD from another phone on the same
line as your TAD-799.
USING TOLL-SAVER
If the ring select switch is set to TS (tollsaver, see “Setting the Number of
Rings” on Page 11), the TAD answers
after two rings if you have new messages. If there are no new messages, the
TAD waits for four rings before answering. This gives you time to hang up before the TAD answers so you can avoid
unnecessary long-distance charges.
CHANGING THE REMOTE
OPERATION SECURITY
CODE
The TAD-799’s remote operation security code is preset to 799. Follow these
steps to change the code.
Notes:
• Be sure to set each digit within 8
seconds. Otherwise, you must start
over from Step 1.
• We recommend you not use three
identical digits (such as 999) for the
security code. Such numbers are
too easy for others to guess.
• If AC power fails or if the backup
battery becomes weak, the remote
operation security code automatically resets to 799.

TROUBLESHOOTING
We do not expect you to have any problems with your TAD-799, but if you do, the
following suggestions might help.
Problem
The incoming message is
incomplete.
Suggestion
Be sure the TAD’s memory is not full.
The 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
(see “Installing a Backup Battery” on Page 6).
TAD does not answer calls.
Make sure the TAD is set to answer calls.
Check all phone line connections.
Make sure the AC adapter is properly connected.
TAD does not record callers’
messages.
Memory may be full (FL appears). Delete some of
your messages.
No messages appear on the
message counter.
This could be caused by a power failure. Reset the
TAD by removing the AC adapter and the battery
from the TAD, then reconnect the adapter and
reinstall the battery.
The TAD does not respond
to the remote operation
security code.
Make sure the phone you used to dial the TAD is a
touch-tone phone. (If it is not, you can use a
pocket tone dialer to enter the code and commands.)
Make sure the remote operation security code you
entered is correct. Try entering the default code of
799. The TAD may have reset to the default code
because of a power failure.
Re-enter your security code, pressing each button
for 2 seconds.

43-799.fm Page 20 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack TAD-799 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. 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.)
20
43-799.fm Page 21 Monday, August 16, 1999 9:43 AM
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.
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.
