IMPORTANT INFORMATION
NOTICE: The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification means
that the equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational and
safety requirements. The Industry Canada does not guarantee the equipment will operate to
the user’s satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the
facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using
an acceptable method of connection. The customer should be aware that compliance with the
above conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an authorized Canadian maintenance
facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this
equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to
request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the
power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe systems, if present, are
connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas.
CAUTION: Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should
contact the appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as appropriate.
NOTES: This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone company.
Party lines are subject to telephone company tariffs and, therefore, you may not be able to
use your own telephone equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your local
telephone company.
INTERFERENCE INFORMATION
If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception (which you can
determine by turning the equipment off and on), try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures.
• Reorient the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or television that is
“receiving” the interference.)
• Change the position of the computer with respect to the radio or television equipment
that is receiving interference.
• Move the Telephone Answering System away from the equipment that is receiving
interference.
• Plug the Telephone Answering System into a different wall outlet so that the Telephone
Answering System and the equipment receiving interference are on different branch circuits.
If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an
experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions.
HEARING AID COMPATIBILITY
This telephone system meets FCC/Industry Canada standards for Hearing Aid Compatibility.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
In case of difficulty, please check the following Troubleshooting Guide
before seeking service.
Problem
Solution
No dial tone
• Check installation:
— Is the base power cord connected to a working outlet?
— Is the telephone line cord connected to the base unit and
the wall jack?
• Disconnect the base from the wall jack and connect another
phone to the same jack. If there is no dial tone in the second
phone, the problem might be your wiring or local service.
• Is the Handset out of the base unit’s range? Move closer to
the base unit.
• Make sure the battery is properly charged (12 hours).
• Is the battery pack installed correctly?
• If the phone still does not work, disconnect the power cord
and remove the battery pack. Then reconnect the power cord
and reinstall the battery pack. Place Handset in the base for
10 seconds to allow it to reinitialize.
Dial tone is OK, but
can’t dial out
• Make sure the TONE/PULSE switch on the base is set
correctly.
Handset does not ring
• You may have too many extension phones on your line. Try
unplugging some phones.
• See solutions for “No dial tone.”

Make sure base is not plugged into an outlet with another
household appliance.
Problem
Solution
Battery will not hold a
charge or is fully charged
and the BAT LOW lights
• Be sure you are sufficiently charging the battery. When the
battery has been charged for 12 hours, you can expect
approximately 4 hours of talk time.
• Check to be sure battery contacts on both the Handset and
the base are making contact and are clean; free of dirt or lint.
• When the Handset is placed in the base, check that the base
CHARGE/IN USE light is on.
BAT LOW light blinks
• Place Handset in base for 10 seconds to reset the phone. If
that doesn’t work, charge battery for 12 hours.
Memory Dialing
doesn’t work
• Did you program the memory location keys correctly?
• Did you follow proper dialing sequence?
• Make sure TONE/PULSE switch is correctly set.
TELEPHONE NETWORK INFORMATION
Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone network,
the telephone company, where practicable, may notify you that temporary discontinuance of
service may be required. Where prior notice is not practicable and the circumstances
warrant such action, the telephone company may temporarily discontinue service
immediately.
The telephone company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment,
operations or procedures where such action is required in the operation of its business. If
these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone equipment,
the telephone company will likely give you adequate notice to allow you to maintain
uninterrupted service.
Notice must be given to the telephone company upon termination of your telephone from
your line.
REN NUMBER
On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, the FCC
Registration number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You must,
upon request, provide this information to your telephone company.
The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to your telephone
line and still have all of these devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most
(but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line should not
exceed 5. To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line as
determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone company.
15
GENERAL PRODUCT CARE
To keep your telephone working and looking good, follow
these guidelines:
• Avoid putting the phone near heating appliances and devices that
generate electrical noise (for example, motors or fluorescent lamps).
• DO NOT expose to direct sunlight or moisture.
• Avoid dropping the Handset, as well as other rough treatment to
the phone.
• Clean the phone with a soft cloth.
• Never use a strong cleaning agent or abrasive powder because this will
damage the finish.
• Retain the original packaging in case you need to ship the phone at a
later date.
• Periodically clean the charge contacts on the Handset and base with a
eraser.
CAUSES OF POOR RECEPTION
• Aluminum siding.
• Foil backing on insulation.
• Heating ducts and other metal construction can shield radio signals.
• You’re too close to appliances such as microwaves, stoves,
computers, etc.
• Atmospheric conditions, such as strong storms.
• Base is installed in the basement or lower floor of the house.
• Base is plugged into an AC outlet with other electronic devices.
• Baby monitor is using the same frequency.
• Handset battery is low.
• You are out of range of the base.
