Guidelines, warnings and precautions for
safe and efficient use
Recommendations
6
•
Always keep and handle your products with care and keep
them in a clean and dust-free place. Proper use and care will
prolong the products life. Use a soft absorbent tissue or cloth to
remove dust, dirt or moisture.
•
Always ensure that the phone, battery and charger are used and
operated in the intended environment for which they are
designed.
•
Operate the phone in temperatures between 0°C to +40°C
(32°F to 104°F).
•
Do not expose your products to liquid, moisture, humidity,
solvents, strong sunlight, harsh environments or extreme
temperatures, never above +60°C (+140°F).
BusinessPhone – Cordless DT590
Important
•
Exposure to heat may cause batteries to leak, overheat or
explode, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries.
•
Do not put the product in the microwave oven: This may cause
damage to either the oven or the product.
•
Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the phone,
the charger(s) or the battery-pack. Disassembly or alteration
may result in electrical shock or irreversible damage to the
equipment. Only a qualified service personnel or an authorized
Ericsson partner should conduct internal inspections,
alterations and repairs.
•
Do not expose your product to open flames or lit tobacco
products.
•
Do not drop, throw or bend your products. This may cause
malfunction or electric shock.
•
Do not paint your product.
•
Do not use your product in an area where a potentially explosive
atmosphere exists.
•
To avoid hearing impairment, accept the call before holding your
product (or portable handsfree device) to your ear.
•
The DT590 phone is not specified as intrinsically safe, so do not
use it in areas with a danger of explosion.
Disposing of the product
•
Your product should not be placed in municipal waste. Please
check local regulations for disposal of electronic products.
Power supply
•
Connect the AC power adapter of the charging unit only to the
designated power sources as marked on the charger.
•
Make sure the cord is positioned so that it will not be subjected
to damage or stress.
•
To reduce risk of electrical shock, unplug the chargers from any
power source before attempting to clean or move it.
•
The AC power adapters must not be used outdoors or in damp
areas.
•
Never alter the cord or plug. If the plug will not fit into the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
•
Limit the distance between the mains socket and the cordless
phone when charging for easy accessibility.
BusinessPhone – Cordless DT590
7
Important
•
As an energy saving measure, disconnect the charger from the
main socket after charging.
•
When unplugging the mains adapter from the power outlet,
make sure that your hands are dry and ensure that you hold the
solid portion of the mains adapter.
•
Do not pull on cables.
Charging and batteries
Please read carefully the following important precautions
before the first time use of the batteries. Make sure to
understand and observe all cautionary instructions stated, so
as to avoid any possible safety hazards that are caused by
any misuse, misapplication or damage to batteries.
8
•
Only use batteries, mains adapters or desk and rack chargers
designed for use with your product.
•
Use of power sources not explicitly recommended may lead to
overheating, reduced battery performance, distortion of the
equipment and fire or other damages.
•
Cordless phones are equipped with Nickel Metal Hydride
(NiMH) batteries or Lithium Ion Lion batteries. In a complex
infrastructure, the talk- and standby time may differ, due to the
consequence of the increase in signaling.
•
The battery must always be completely charged (minimal 4
hours) before first time use.
•
The battery in your product is designed to withstand many
charge cycles.
•
Use only the recommended charging equipment.
•
Improper charging can cause heat damage or even high
pressure rupture.
•
Observe proper charging polarity.
•
Do not solder lead wires directly onto the battery.
•
Do not apply water to the battery.
•
The initial charging of a NiMH battery will cause the battery to
become warm. This is a normal effect of charging NiMH
batteries.
•
The batteries are replaceable, however it is not the intention to
do this frequently.
•
Only charge the batteries when placed in the phone.
•
Use only the specified battery-packs for your product.
BusinessPhone – Cordless DT590
Important
•
Never heat or dispose of the battery into a fire, which, or else,
may cause leakage, burst or fire.
•
Remove the carrying case from the product while in charger.
•
Do not cover the product while being charged. Do not charge
the phone in a closed cabinet or drawer. The charging of the
battery is a chemical process and causes the battery to become
warm during charging. Make sure the environment in which the
phone is charged, is well vented.
•
The cordless phone can be charged either when switched on or
off.
•
Do not connect the battery's positive and negative leads
altogether in any case.
•
Do not strike or drop the battery. It may cause damage to the
battery.
•
Do not charge the battery under the temperature of +5°C
(+41°F). Be sure to charge the battery between the
temperatures of +5°C and +45°C (+41°F and 113°F). Charging
beyond these conditions may impair the battery performance
and shorten the life cycle.
•
Do not use battery packs from different types, brands or of
different capacities.
•
The battery is to be stored in a dry cool place, with the ambient
temperature around of +25°C (+77°F) for best performance.
•
The battery continues to discharge a minimal portion of its
power, even if the product is switched off or the battery is
removed.
•
Dispose the battery in accordance with all local regulations,
applicable in your country.
Warnings
•
Smoke or fumes
Stop operating the products and turn off immediately in case of
smoke or fumes. Unplug the mains adapter and remove the
batteries from the phone immediately. Continued operation may
result in fire or electrical shock.
•
LCD
If the liquid crystal display breaks, avoid injury by not letting the
liquid crystal touch the skin, getting it into the eye or into the
mouth or getting cut by the broken glass.

Important
Preventing malfunction
10
•
Never place the equipment in close proximity of electric motors,
welding equipment or other devices generating strong (electro)
magnetic fields. Exposure to strong (electro) magnetic fields
may cause malfunction and corrupt the communication.
•
Moving the equipment rapidly between warm and cold
temperatures may cause condensation (water droplets) to form
on its internal and external surfaces. Water droplets may cause
malfunction of the equipment and corrupt or end
communication or damage the equipment. When condensation
is noticed, stop using the equipment. Switch off the phone,
remove the battery and unplug the mains adapter from the
power outlet. Wait until the moisture evaporates from the
equipment before putting it in operation again.
•
Avoid accidental drop of the phone. Use the clip, security clip or
carrying case specified for carrying purposes of the phone.
•
Avoid the phone being squeezed between furniture and your
body when carrying the phone in your pocket or attached to
clothing.

Call Forwarding
Call Forwarding
When you are not available to take calls or decide to answer your
calls on another extension, it is useful to forward your calls to an
alternate answering position. The alternate answering position can
either be a pre-programmed one (one for: Diversion when your
cordless is switched off or out of coverage and a common one for:
Fixed Diversion, Diversion when there is no answer, Diversion when
your extension is busy and Diversion when charging) or an
individual one.
If you urgently need to talk to someone who has forwarded his
calls, the system is also equipped with a bypass function.
Depending on the type of diversion, you are also able to record
your Personal Greeting for your mailbox, see section “Change your
Personal Greeting” on page 66.
Note: You can still make calls as usual.
Diversion when there is no answer
If you are not available to answer incoming calls (internal or
external), your system administrator can program your extension to
automatically divert calls to a pre-programmed diversion address
after a certain amount of time (default time: 15 seconds).
Diversion when your extension is busy
If your extension is busy and you receive an incoming call (internal
or external), your system administrator can program your extension
to automatically divert the call to a pre-programmed diversion
address.

Networking is the connection of several premises within a

If you are connected to an internal data network, the IP connection
is made automatically. To minimize the traffic on the network, the
speech quality is decreased.
If the speech quality is not acceptable, you can disconnect the
IP call and switch to a non-IP call (Alternative network). The switch
from the IP net to the non-IP net is made during the call, so the call
does not have to be disconnected.

Useful Hints
Useful Hints
Connections between external lines
With your BusinessPhone Communication Platform, you can
establish an external call diversion or a conference with more than
one external party or transfer an external call to another external
destination (e.g. a mobile phone). These features are very useful for
everyday business life.
Note: When these features are used, your BusinessPhone
Communication Platform will occupy at least two external
lines.
However, there may be disadvantages in connecting to several
external lines. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the
following:
•
Please do not transfer external calls to an external
mailbox, to information systems or to external parties
before they have answered.
•
If you are connected to two external lines, cancel one call
by pressing “R” and “1”.
If the external parties are not persons (mailbox, automated
information or attendant systems, etc.), connections on external
lines can last a long time, which can be costly. Moreover, such calls
may occupy two of your system’s external lines. You can restrict
connections between the external lines by reprogramming your
system.
Please ask your system administrator or contact our service center
for more information.

indicate an empty battery even though it is fully charged. Placing
the phone in the charger for a while will remove the problem.
Note: To avoid fatigue of the phone’s battery connector,
use the charger instead of repeatedly replacing an empty
battery with a new one.
