operating at normal
level, the battery light
remains off.
You experience a
power cut
Back up will only
occur if a battery is
fitted, and will only last
approximately 6 hours.
All its settings and
messages should be
saved until power
resumes. However, it
will not be able to record
any new messages
during the power cut.
You cannot hear
messages or
incoming calls
The speaker volume
may be set too low.
Adjust it by pressing +
on the volume control.
Buzzing noises on the
answering machine
Your answering
machine is too close to
a radio, TV, computer,
cordless or mobile
telephone, causing
interference. Move it
another metre away.
Technical
information
Environment
If the power fails
Your Response 125
should be kept free of
dust, moisture, high
temperature and
vibration, and should
not be exposed to
direct sunlight. Do not
stand it on carpets or
other surfaces which
generate fibres, or
place it in locations
which prevent the free
flow of air over its
surfaces.
If the battery warning
light was off when the
power was lost, all
information should be
retained for at least 1
hour (up to 6 hours
for a fresh alkaline
battery).
Warning
The apparatus is only
designed to be operated in
a normal office or
domestic environment
where the relative
humidity does not exceed
75%. It should not be used
in bathrooms or near
water.
If the light was on,
data may be lost even
if a back-up battery
was installed.
If no battery was
installed, all
information will be
lost and the Response
125 will power up as
new when power is
restored.
How many phones
can you have?
All items of telephone
equipment have a
Ringer Equivalence
Number (REN), which
is used to calculate
the number of items
that may be connected
to any one telephone
line. Your Response
125 has a REN of 1.
Any other instrument
provided by BT may
be assumed to have a
REN of 1 unless stated
otherwise. A total
REN of 4 is allowed.
(For example: if your
Response 125 is used
in conjunction with
three extension
telephones, each with
a REN of 1, the total
REN is 4).
If the total REN of 4
is exceeded, the
telephones may not
ring. With different
telephone types there
is no guarantee of
ringing, even when
the REN is less than 4.

Wall-mounting
Your Response 125
can be wall-mounted
using the screws and
wall plugs provided.
Use the wall-mounting
template opposite as
a guide for the drill
holes.
Before you wall-mount
your Response 125,
check that:
• the wall can support
the weight of the phone;
• the position you choose
leaves sufficient space
so that the phone is
clear of any obstruction
on the wall, such as a
shelf or cupboard.
Press the phone line
cable into the channel
on the bottom of the
phone, so that the
phone lies flat against
the wall.
Wall-mounting
template
Hang the holes on the
back of the phone
over the screwheads
and gently pull the
phone downward to
make sure it is
securely in place.
Rotate the handset
hook 180°, so that
you can hang up the
handset when the
phone is wallmounted.
