Location
You need to place your BT Lyric 2500 within 2 metres of
the mains power socket and telephone socket so that the
cables will reach.
Make sure it is at least 2-3 metres away from other
electrical appliances to avoid interference.
Your BT Lyric 2500 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. Pull down the small battery compartment cover and slide
off. Remove the back lens. Insert the 2 x AAA NiMH
batteries supplied.
WARNING
Do not place your BT Lyric 2500
in the bathroom or other humid
areas.
Handset range
The BT Lyric 2500 has a range of
300m outdoors when there is a
clear line of sight between the base
and the handset. When there is no
clear line of sight between the
handset and the base, e.g. the
base is indoors and the handsets is
either indoors or outdoors, the
range could be reduced to 50m.
Thick stone walls will severely
affect the range.
Signal strength
The symbol on your handset
indicates when you are in range.
When you are out of range a beep
will sound every minute.
IMPORTANT
Do not connect the telephone line
until your handset is fully charged.
The base station must be plugged
into the mains power at all times.

Getting started
The red Charging light stays on
even when the batteries are fully
charged.
Talk/Standby time
Under ideal conditions, fully
charged handset batteries should
give about 10 hours talk time or
100 hours standby time on a single
charge.
BATTERY LOW WARNING
If the symbol is empty and
flashing, and you hear a warning
beep every 10 -15 seconds, you
will need to recharge your handset
before you can use it.
Battery performance
To keep your batteries in the best
condition, leave the handset off
the base for a few hours at a time
(after the initial 16 hour charge).
New NiMH batteries do not reach
full capacity until they have been in
normal use for several days.
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 Lyric
Helpline 0870 605 8047.
2. Replace the back lens by fitting the top into the groove
on the handset. Whilst pressing down on the bottom of
the back lens, position the two lugs on the battery cover
so that they can slide up the grooves of the handset. It
will click into place.

3. Plug the mains power cord into the underside of the base
and into the mains power. The green Power/In use light

handset is fully charged the display shows the symbol.
