Important Electrical Considerations
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is approaching. Lightning can pass through
your household wiring and damage any device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
Warning:
Please do not attempt to unplug any appliance during an electrical storm.
Caution: Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by Uniden, or operation of this
product in any way other than as detailed by this Operating Guide, could void your authority to
operate this product.
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range by transmitting and receiving according
to the highest specifications set forth by the FCC. We have rated this phone to operate at a maximum distance
with the qualification that the range depends upon the environment in which the telephone is used. Many
factors limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the variables in our rating. The Maximum Range
rating of this phone is meant to be used as a means of comparison against other range claims.
Telephone Line Problems
The FCC has granted the telephone company the right to disconnect service in the event that your phone
causes problems on the telephone line. Also, the telephone company may make changes in facilities and
services which may affect the operation of your unit. However, your telephone company must give adequate
notice in writing prior to such actions to allow you time for making necessary arrangements to continue
uninterrupted service.
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first disconnect your phone to determine if it is
the cause of your problem. If you determine that it is the cause, you must leave it disconnected until the trouble
has been corrected.
Radio Interference
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in your cordless Handset, or clicking noises
in the Base Unit. This interference is caused by external sources such as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner,
fluorescent lighting, or electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises continue and are too
distracting, please check around your home to see what appliances may be causing the problem. In addition,
we recommend that the Base not be plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of the
potential for interference. Be certain that the antenna on the unit is fully extended when needed.
In the unlikely event that you consistently hear other voices or distracting transmissions on your phone, you
may be receiving radio signals from another cordless telephone or other source of interference. If you cannot
eliminate this type of interference, you need to change to a different channel.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at 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. If interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone
farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.
More Than One Cordless Telephone
If you want to use more than one cordless telephone in your home, they must operate on different channels.
Press the channel key to select a channel that provides the clearest communication.
Cordless Telephone Privacy
Cordless telephones are radio devices. Communications between the handset and base of your cordless
telephone are accomplished by means of radio waves which are broadcast over the open airways. Because of
the inherent physical properties of radio waves, your communications can be received by radio receiving
devices other than your own cordless telephone unit. Consequently, any communications using your cordless
telephone may not be private.

Installation
Selecting a Location
Before choosing a location for your new phone, there are some important guidelines you should consider:
• The location should be close to both a phone jack and continuous power outlet.
Note: A continuous power outlet is an AC outlet which does not have a switch to interrupt its power.
• Keep the Base Unit and Handset away from sources of electrical noise such as motors or fluorescent
lighting.
• Be sure there is sufficient space to fully extend the Base Unit antenna.
• The Base Unit can be placed on a desk or tabletop or mounted on a standard AT&T or GTE wall plate.
• If you decide to mount your phone on the wall, make sure to change the handset retainer so that the tab
which holds the Handset faces up. (See page 10 for more information.)
• You should charge your new phone for 15-20 hours before completing the installation or using the
Handset.
Telephone Line Outlets
There are two types of phone outlets:
Modular Jack
Most phone equipment available now uses modular jacks. Phone cords are fitted with a molded plastic
connector which plugs into this type of jack. If you do not have modular phone jacks, contact your local
telephone company for information about their installation.
Hard-wired Jack
Some equipment is wired directly to a phone jack, and these types of installations require a modular jack
converter. This type of installation is not difficult; however, you should contact your Uniden telephone dealer or
a telephone supply store for advice about the proper adapter or converter for your particular situation.
Connecting the Telephone Cords
Consider these safety guidelines before connecting the telephone cords:
Caution!
• Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
• Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected.
• Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
Applying Power to the Base Unit
All the DX834 phone requires an AC outlet, without a switch to interrupt power, and the included AC adapter.
To relieve strain on the DC plug when the phone is placed on a desk or table, connect the adapter as shown
below.
Wrap the power cord around the convenient notch on the bottom.
Important:

Place the power cord so that it does not create a trip hazard, or where it could become chafed and
create a fire or other electrical hazards.

pipes, or other items behind the mounting
location that could cause a hazard when
inserting screws into the wall.
• Make sure the wall material is capable of
supporting the weight of the Base Unit and
Handset.
• Use #10 screws with anchoring devices
suitable for the wall material where the Base
Unit will be placed.

Battery Memory Effect
Rechargeable batteries can develop a “memory”
(reduced charge capacity) caused by repeated
charge and discharge cycles. The battery life will
seem to be shorter every time you use the unit.
To Avoid this Memory Effect
At least once a month, operate the unit until the
“Battery Low” indicator appears. Then recharge the
battery for a full 15 - 20 hours. Avoid putting the
handset back in the base after using the phone for a
short time. This could cause “topping off” the charge.
Also, do not charge the Rechargeable Battery for
extended periods of time.
