INSTALLATION
We have designed your phone to conform to
federal regulations, and you can connect it to
most telephone lines. However, each phone
and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine, that you connect to the
telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as
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 cordless
phone. For this reason, this 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.
Some cordless phones operate at frequencies that might cause interference to nearby
TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such
interference, the base of the cordless phone
should not be placed near or on top of a TV
or VCR.
FCC STATEMENT
Your phone 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
on the bottom of your phone.
Note: You must not connect your phone to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems

ˆ Installation
MOUNTING THE PHONE
Notes:
You can place the phone’s base on a desk or
table, or mount it on a standard wall plate or
directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
• near a modular 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
• 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.
Connecting to the Phone Lines
• Your telephone connects directly to a
modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular
jack, you can update the wiring yourself
using jacks and adapters (available at
your local RadioShack store), or have
the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible
modular jacks that are compliant with
Part 68 of FCC Rules.
• The line that connects a two-line phone
jack to the phone company wiring must
be twisted-pair cable. Otherwise, you
might hear interference (crosstalk)
between the two lines.
• The USOC number of the two-line jack
to be installed is RJ14C (RJ14W for a
wall plate). The USOC number of a single-line jack is RJ11C.
Cautions:
To take full advantage of the phone’s capabilities, you must have two phone lines with
separate phone numbers. If you have only
one line, you can order a second from your
phone company.
You must use a Class 2 power
source that supplies 9V DC
and delivers at least 400 mA.
Its center tip must be set to positive and
its plug must fit the phone's DC IN 9V
jack. The supplied adapter meets these
specifications. Using an adapter that
does not meet these specifications
could damage the phone or the adapter.
!
You can connect the phone to the lines in
one of three ways:
• connect two lines through a two-line
modular phone jack
• connect two lines through two one-line
modular phone jack
• connect one line through a one-line
modular phone jack.
10
• Always connect the AC adapter to the
phone before you connect it to AC
power. When you finish, disconnect the
adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.
• The supplied RadioShack adapter was
designed specifically for your phone.
Use only the supplied adapter.

Installation
• If the handset’s display is blank and the
phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be
too low to light the display.)
• If the battery pack becomes weak during
a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Bem 8Wjj[ho flashes. When this
happens, you cannot make another call
on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge the
battery pack by keeping the handset off
the base until Bem 8Wjj[ho flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to
fully recharge.
• If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while
the handset is away from it, place the
handset on the base to reset the security access-protection code. If the handset loses power, recharge the battery
pack.
The supplied 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.
Note: To avoid losing memory numbers, install and begin charging the new battery
pack within 2 minutes.
Warning: Dispose of the old battery pack
promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it
(see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 5
for additional information on proper battery
handling).
If you have trouble replacing the battery, take
the phone to your local RadioShack store for
assistance.

display)
Low volume of unusual sounds.
Someone has picked up another phone on the same phone
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 the interference.
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 vertical 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 antenna is touching a metal surface.
Recharge the battery pack.
Be sure the battery pack is connected correctly (see “Connecting, Charging, and Replacing the Battery Pack” on
Page 12).
Be sure the handset is properly seated on the base.
Replace the battery pack.

Troubleshooting
Problem
The handset does not ring or receive a
page.
Suggestion
Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.
Move the handset closer to the base.
Move the handset and base away from other electrical
devices.
Set the ringer volume to either high or low.
Recharge the battery pack.
If the base loses power while the handset is off of it, the security access-protection code might change. Restore power to
the base, then place the handset back on the base and leave
it there for a few seconds.
Check the number of devices connected to your phone line
and add up the RENs. See “Read This Before Installation” on
Page 2.
You have an incoming call, but do not
receive any Caller ID information.
Let the phone ring twice before you answer so the system has
time to record the Caller ID information.
Check that the system is correctly and securely connected.
Call your phone company to verify that your Caller ID service
is active.
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 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 telephone
lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your phone until you have resolved
the problem.
