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. For this reason, this
telephone 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.
When AC power is lost, the phone loses the
security access-protection code connection
between the base and the handset. When
power is restored, put the handset on the
base briefly to restore this connection so you
can use the handset.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
This telephone has been tested and found to
comply with all applicable UL and FCC standards.
We have designed your phone to conform to
federal regulations and you can connect it to
most phone lines. However, each device that
you connect to the telephone line draws
power from the line. We refer to this power
draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of
your phone.
If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the
total is more than five (three in rural areas),
your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices
from the line.
FCC STATEMENT
Your telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC
Rules. Upon request, you must provide the
phone’s FCC registration number and REN
to your telephone company. These numbers
are on the bottom of the base.
Note: You must not connect your telephone
to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key phone systems
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or
shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain
or moisture.
CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK.
DO NOT OPEN.
!
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE
COVER OR BACK. NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING
TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL.
This symbol is intended to alert
you to the presence of uninsulated dangerous voltage within
the product’s enclosure that might
be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock. Do
not open the product’s case.
!
This symbol is intended to inform
you that important operating and
maintenance instructions are
included in the literature accompanying this product.
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 it.
Try to eliminate the interference by:
3
• moving your phone away from the
receiver
3. Never install telephone wiring during a
lightning storm.
• connecting your phone to an AC outlet
that is on a different electrical circuit
from the receiver
4. Never install telephone jacks in wet
locations unless the jack is specifically
designed for wet locations.
• contacting your local RadioShack store
for help
5. Never touch uninsulated telephone
wires or terminals unless the telephone
line has been disconnected at the network interface.
If you cannot eliminate the interference, the
FCC requires that you stop using your
phone.
Some cordless telephones operate on frequencies that might 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 in an area that has severe
electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug
your phone when storms approach to reduce
the possibility of damage.

MOUNTING THE PHONE
On a Desk Top
You can place the phone’s base on a desk
top or table, or mount it on a wall. Select a location that is:
• near an accessible AC outlet
• near a telephone line jack
• away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and
room monitors
• away from other cordless phones
The base’s location affects the handset’s
range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best
performance.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V DC
and delivers at least 210 mA.
Its center tip must be set to positive and
its plug must fit the telephone's DC IN
9V jack. The supplied adapter meets
these specifications. Using an adapter
that does not meet these specifications
could damage the telephone or the
adapter.
!
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
telephone before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the telephone.
• The supplied AC adapter was designed
specifically for your phone. Use only the
supplied adapter.

2. Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the
back of the base.
3. Align the bracket’s keyhole slots with the
mounting screws and slide the base
down to secure it.
Note: The handset window is protected during shipment by a piece of film. Carefully
peel off this film before using your phone.
CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The phone 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 charge it
for about 24 hours.
1. Press down and
slide the battery
compartment
cover in the
direction of the arrow to remove it.
2. Lift the battery
pack out of the
compartment.
Plug the battery
pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment.
The connector only fits one way.
Installation
3. Put the battery pack in the compartment.
4. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, simply place the
handset on the base, either face up or face
down. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the
base lights.
Recharge the battery pack when the handset
beeps and the TALK/LOW BATT indicator
flashes.
Notes:
• Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The
CHARGE/IN USE indicator flashes
when the handset is on the base with
the battery pack not connected properly.
• When you first use the phone after
charging or recharging the battery pack,
the phone might not work and you might
hear a series of beeps. If this happens,
return the handset to the base for a few
seconds.
• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, you hear a beep and the TALK/
LOW BATT indicator flashes every 3
seconds. Recharge the battery pack.
If the battery pack is completely discharged,
the handset loses the security access-protection code. To reset the code, place the
handset on the base and charge the battery
pack.
The battery pack should last about one year.
If the battery pack does not hold a charge for
more than 2 hours after an overnight charge,
replace it with a new 3.6-volt, 600 mAh battery pack 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 and charge it for
about 24 hours.
Cautions:
• You must use a replacement battery
pack of the same size and type.
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery pack by keeping the handset off
the base until the TALK/ LOW BATT
indicator flashes. Otherwise, the battery
pack loses its ability to fully recharge.
• Do not dispose of the battery pack in a
fire because it might explode.
• Using a pencil
eraser, clean
the charging
contacts
on
the
handset
and the base
about once a
month.
• Be careful not to short the battery pack
by touching the connector’s pins with
conducting materials, such as rings,
bracelets, and keys. The battery pack or
conductor might overheat and burn.
• Do not open or mutilate the battery
pack.
If you have trouble replacing the battery
pack, take the phone to your local
RadioShack store for assistance.
• If the TALK/LOW BATT indicator does
not light and the phone does not work,
recharge the battery pack. (The battery
power might be too low to light the indicator.)
Important: The EPA certified
RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal
on the nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd)

Troubleshooting
Problem
Suggestion
The handset stops working or works poorly
during a call.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully upright position.
Be sure the handset’s battery pack is charged. (If the
battery pack power is too low, it does not have enough
power to flash the TALK/LOW BATT indicator.)
Low volume or unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on the same
line. Hang up the other phone.
Severe noise interference.
Keep the handset and base away from computers,
remote control toys, wireless microphones, alarm systems, intercoms, room monitors, fluorescent lights, and
electrical appliances.
Move to another location or turn off the source of inteference.
Press CHANNEL to change the channel.
Hang up and redial the number.
The phone cannot be operated at a useful
distance from the base because the signal
becomes weak or noisy (handset’s range
has decreased).
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully upright position.
The handset battery pack does not charge.
Check the charging contacts on the handset and base.
If they are dirty, clean them with a pencil eraser.
Be sure neither the handset nor base antenna is touching a metal surface.
Recharge the battery pack.
Be sure the battery pack is properly connected.
Be sure the handset is properly seated on the base.
Handset does not ring or receive a page.
Lift the base’s antenna to a fully upright position.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Move the base away from other electrical devices.
Recharge the battery pack.
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 phone to
your local RadioShack store for assistance.
CARE
Keep the phone dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry
immediately. Use and store the phone only in
normal temperature environments. Handle
the phone carefully; do not drop it. Keep the
phone away from dust and dirt, and wipe it
with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new.
Modifying or tampering with the phone’s internal components can cause a malfunction
and invalidate its warranty. If your phone is
not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance.
