Getting started
Location
You need to place your BT Studio 2300 within 2 metres
of a mains power and telephone socket so that the
cables will reach.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical
appliances to avoid interference.
Your BT Studio 2300 works by sending radio signals
between the handset and base. The strength of the
signal depends on where you site the base. Putting it as
high as possible ensures the best signal.
Setting up
1. Plug the power adaptor and telephone cable into the
back of the base.
7
WARNING
Do not place your BT Studio 2300
in the bathroom or other humid
areas.
Handset range
The BT Studio 2300 has a range of
300 metres outdoors when there is
a clear line of sight between the
base and handset. When there is
no clear line of sight between the
base and handset, e.g. base
indoors and handset either indoors
or outdoors, the range could be
reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone
walls severely affect the range.
Signal strength
The
symbol on your handset
screen indicates when you are in
range. When you are out of range,
it flashes.
IMPORTANT
Do not connect the telephone line
until at least one of the handsets is
fully charged.
The base must be plugged into the
mains power at all times.
Which socket?
Power socket
2. Plug the power adaptor into the mains wall socket and
switch the power on. When connected correctly, the
green Power light on the base comes on.
Telephone line socket
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047
8
Getting started
The red Charging light stays on
while the handset is on the base,
even when the batteries are fully
charged.
3. Install the 2 x AAA rechargeable batteries supplied.
Then slide the battery compartment cover into place.
Talk/Standby time
Under ideal conditions, fully charged
handset batteries should give up
to 8 hours talktime or 80 hours
standby on a single charge.
Battery low warning
The handset battery symbol is
empty and you will hear a warning
beep. Start recharging your handset
right away.
When charging the battery, level
bars are animated.
Replacing batteries
Use only rechargeable 750mAh or
higher AAA NiMH batteries.
4. Charge the handset for at least 24 hours by placing it on
the base. The red Charging light comes on. The handset
is pre-registered to the base as Handset 1. The screen
shows the standby display.
Battery performance
When batteries are fully charged
the display shows 3 green bars.
To keep your batteries in the best
conditions, leave the handset off
the base for a few hours at a time
(after the initial 24 hour charge).
Please note however, that new
NiMH batteries do not reach full
capacity until they have been in
normal use for several days.
5. After 24 hours, plug the telephone line cord into the wall
socket and your BT Studio 2300 base.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047
Getting started
Range indicator
The
symbol on your handset display indicates when
you are in range of the base. If the symbol flashes and
you hear a warning beep, you are out of range and will
need to move closer to the base. The display shows Base
and the number of the base last used.
Set date and time.
Running the batteries right down
at least once a week will help them
last as long as possible.
The charge capacity of rechargeable
batteries will reduce with time as
they wear out, so reducing the
talk/standby time of the handset.
Eventually they will need to be
replaced. New batteries can be
obtained from the BT Studio
Helpline 0870 605 8047.
If you have subscribed to your network’s Caller Display
service, the time and date will be set automatically when
