Getting started
WARNING
Do not place your BT Synergy
4000 in the bathroom or other
humid areas.
Handset range
The BT Synergy 4000 has a range
of up to 300 metres outdoors
when there is a clear line of sight
between the base and handset.
Any obstruction between the base
and handset will reduce the range
significantly. With the base indoors
and handset either indoors or
outdoors, the range will normally
be up to 50 metres. Thick stone
walls can severely affect the range.
Signal strength
The
icon on your handset
indicates when you are in range.
When you move out of range of
the base, the out of range tone will
sound every minute. This tone is
repeated until you move back into
range.
Location
You need to place your BT Synergy 4000 charger within
2 metres of a mains power socket so that the cable
will reach.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other
electrical appliances to avoid interference.
Your BT Synergy 4000 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.
Connect the charger to the mains power
1. Push the mains power cord into the power socket on the
underside of the charger until you hear it click into place.
Plug the other end into the mains power wall socket.
IMPORTANT
The charger must be plugged into
the mains power socket at all
times. Only use the power cable
supplied with the product.
Power adaptor cable
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com
Synergy 4000 – Issue 2 – Edition 1 – 05.07.06 – 7699
Getting started
Charge the handset
1. Rechargeable batteries are already fitted in your
handset. To activate the batteries, pull the plastic tab
away from the bottom of the handset as shown.
PULL
Rechargeable batteries
already fitted
Remove this tab and
charge batteries for 24
hours before use
2. Place the handset on the charger to charge for at least 24
hours. The red Charging light comes on (this will stay on
even when the batteries are fully charged). When the
handset is fully charged the display shows the symbol.
Registering your handset to either your BT Synergy
4100 or 4500 base
If you are registering the handset to another DECT GAP
compatible base station that is not a BT Synergy 4100 or
4500, please refer to the user guide for that base for
registration instructions.
Before registration, make sure the handset batteries are
fully charged and that you are close to the main base
station.
Talk/Standby time
In ideal conditions, fully charged
handset batteries should give up
to 10 hours talk time or up to 100
hours standby time on a single
charge. The base must remain
plugged in to the mains and
switched on at all times.
Note that new batteries do not
reach full capacity until they have
been in normal use for several days.
Battery low warning
If the symbol flashes in the
display and you hear a warning
beep every 10-15 seconds, you
will need to recharge the handset
before you can use it again.
During charging, the symbol
will scroll in the display.
Battery performance
To keep your batteries in the best
condition, leave the handset off
the base for a few hours at a 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, giving
the handset less talk/standby time.
Eventually they will need to be
replaced. New batteries are
available from the BT Synergy
4000 Helpline on 0870 605 8047.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com
