Safety information
Safety information
General
Only use the power supply included
with the product. Using an
unauthorised power supply will
invalidate your guarantee and may
damage the telephone. Power supply
number is M-GA35-095130F.
If the Keyguard is switched on, it is
NOT possible to make calls, including
emergency numbers (999/112).
Environmental
Do not expose to direct sunlight.
The product may heat up when the
batteries are being recharged. This is
normal. However, we recommend that
you do not place the product on
antique/veneered wood to avoid damage.
Do not stand your product on carpets or
other surfaces which generate fibres, or
place it in locations preventing the free
flow of air over its surfaces.
Do not open the base station or handset
(other than to change batteries). This
could expose you to high voltages or
other risks.
Do not submerge any part of your
product in water and do not use it in
damp or humid conditions, such as
bathrooms.
Radio signals transmitted between the
handset and base may cause interference
to hearing aids.
Do not expose your product to fire,
explosive or other hazardous conditions.
This product should not be used near
emergency/intensive care medical
equipment and should not be used by
people with pacemakers.
SAFETY INFORMATION
For the handset use only AAA 1.2V
Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)
rechargeable batteries with a minimum
capacity of 700 mAh. Never use other
batteries or conventional alkaline
batteries. They could lead to a short
circuit or destroy the battery casing.
Batteries and accessories are available
from www.withandwithoutwires.com
or call 0870 240 5522.
Cleaning
Simply clean the handset and base
station with a damp (not wet) cloth, or
an anti-static wipe. Never use household
polish as this will damage the product.
Never use a dry cloth as this may cause
a static shock.
There is a slight chance that your phone
could be damaged by an electrical storm.
We recommend that you unplug the
power and telephone line cord during an
electrical storm.
Never dispose of batteries in a fire. There
is a serious risk of explosion and/or the
release of highly toxic chemicals.

Setting up
Plan the location
2 Plug the power supply
unit into the wall socket
Situate your product close enough to
the telephone and mains power sockets
so that the cables will reach.
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away
from other electrical products to avoid
interference.
SETTING UP
Do not situate the product in the
bathroom or other humid areas.
1 Connect the base station
Plug the power supply cable into the
power socket on the underside of your
base.
WARNING
Do not connect the telephone line cord
to the phone socket until your handset
is fully charged. This will prevent the
risk of the phone being answered before
the battery is charged. Answering the
phone before the battery is fully
charged may prevent it from reaching
its optimum capacity.

the handset
The display is protected by a plastic
film. Remove the protective plastic film
from the display.
INT
MENU
Insert the batteries
Under no circumstances should
non-rechargeable batteries be used.
Only use AAA 1.2V Nickel Metal
Hydride (NiMH) rechargeable
batteries with a minimum capacity of
700 mAh.Using inappropriate batteries
will invalidate your guarantee and
may damage the telephone. Batteries
and accessories are available from
www.withandwithoutwires.com
or call 0870 240 5522.
To register your handset, place it in the
base station with the display facing
upward. After approx. one minute, the
handset’s internal number is displayed
(e.g.: 1). Successful registration is
signalled by a confirmation tone.
SETTING UP
Insert the two batteries supplied, as
indicated inside the battery
compartment and slide the battery
compartment cover shut.
WARNING
When the handset is registered the
display will show:

The battery cover may be found in the
packaging with the batteries.

11
BT Diverse 5210 ~ 6th Edition ~ 16th May ’03 ~ 5185
If the icons on the display
flash continuously...
It means that the handset is not
registered with the base station.
Ensure you have correctly carried out
step 3 above. If the product has still
not registered, please see “Registering
manually” on page 39.
All additional handsets you purchase
will need to be individually registered
with the base station before they will
work with the BT Diverse 5210.
SETTING UP
Leave the handset for approx. 16 hours
in the base station to charge the
batteries, as they are not charged in the
factory. The battery status icon flashes
on the handset to indicate that the
batteries are being charged.
Battery level icons
When the batteries are almost flat a
beep sounds and the display shows the
empty battery icon. You will need to
recharge your handset before you can
use it. The various states of charge
are shown below:
Batteries fully charged
Batteries at 66%
Batteries at 33%
Batteries empty
Out of range?
If you go out of range of a base station
for a long time while your handset is
switched ON, it may take more than
20 minutes to ‘find’ the base station
again when you come back within
range. However, by simply switching
the handset OFF for a moment, then
ON again, it will find the base station
within a few seconds.
Battery performance
Batteries and case may become warm
during charging. This is normal.
Under ideal conditions, the handset
batteries should give about 13 hours
talktime or 170 hours standby time
on a single charge. However, new
NiMH batteries do not reach their full
capacity until they have been in
normal use for several days.
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
are available from
www.withandwithoutwires.com
or call 0870 240 5522.
If you replace the handset batteries
with ones that have been fully charged,
the battery indicator will not show full
until the next charge cycle has been
completed. Charge the handset until
the batteries register full again. From
then on the display will be correct.
