Getting started
Location
You need to place your BT Synergy 4100 within 2 metres
of the mains power socket and telephone socket so that
the cables will reach.
7
WARNING
Do not place your BT Synergy 4100
in the bathroom or other humid
areas.
Your BT Synergy 4100 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.
Handset range
The BT Synergy 4100 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.
Setting up
Signal strength
The
icon on your handset
indicates when you are in range.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other
electrical appliances to avoid interference.
1. Push the mains power cord into the underside of the
base until you hear it click into place and connect the
other end into the mains power wall socket. The green
Power/In use light comes on.
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.
IMPORTANT
The base station must be plugged
into the mains power socket at all
times. Do not connect the telephone
line until the handset is fully charged.
Only use the power and telephone
cables supplied with the product.
Which socket?
Power socket
Power adaptor cable
Telephone line socket
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com
Synergy 4100 – Issue 5 – Edition 1 – 18.01.07 – 7993

Getting started
If you have purchased a multiple
handset pack, you should use the
mains power adaptor with the
clear connector for the base.
The power adaptor(s) with the red
connector is for the chargers(s).
2. 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.
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.
PULL
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.
Rechargeable batteries
already fitted
Remove this tab and
charge batteries for 24
hours before use
The red Charging light stays on
even when the batteries are fully
charged.
3. Place the handset on the base to charge for at least 24
hours. The red Charging light comes on. When the
handset is fully charged the display shows the symbol.
4. After 24 hours, plug one end of the telephone line cord
into the socket marked
on the underside of the base
and the other end into the telephone wall socket.
Only use the telephone line cord supplied.
Setting up for multiple packs
If you have purchased a BT Synergy 4100 multiple pack,
you will also need to follow the instructions shown below
to prepare any additional handsets and chargers for use.
For each additional handset and charger:
1. Connect the power adaptor with the red connector to the
charger and switch on.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com
Synergy 4100 – Issue 5 – Edition 1 – 18.01.07 – 7993
Getting started
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.
Power adaptor cable
2. 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
previously.
3. Place the handset on the charger and charge for at least
24 hours. The red charging light will come on.
Your BT Synergy 4100 additional handset comes preregistered to the base. The handset number will be
shown on the display.
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
4100 Helpline on 0870 605 8047.
For instructions on how to install
new batteries, see page 75.
After charging your handset for the
first time, subsequent charging
time is about 6–8 hours a day.
Batteries and handset may become
warm during charging. This is
normal.
Your BT Synergy 4100 is ready for use.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047 or email bt.helpdesk@suncorptech.com

personal user area has its own Inbox and Outbox which
are only accessible when the correct PIN is entered.
