FEATURES
Your RadioShack ET-927 Digital Spread
Spectrum 900 MHz Cordless Telephone
uses advanced digital cordless technology to give you superior sound quality. It
uses the 900 MHz band, which means
less interference and clearer sound, and
greater range than 46/49 MHz cordless
telephones. Its cordless operation lets
you make or answer calls just about
anywhere in your home or office.
An optional headset jack lets you connect a headset to the handset for handsfree conversation — perfect for when
you are working in the yard or garage.

This symbol is intended to inform
you that important operating and
maintenance instructions are
included in the literature accompanying this product.
• Cordless phones such as this one
require AC power to operate. When
AC power is off, you cannot dial out
or receive incoming calls using your
ET-927. For this reason, the ET-927
should not be your only telephone.
To be safe, you should also have a
phone that does not require AC
power to operate (not a cordless
phone), so you can still make and
receive calls if there is an AC power
failure.
• Some cordless phones operate at
frequencies that might cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs.
To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
phone should not be placed near or
on top of a TV or VCR.

READ THIS BEFORE
INSTALLATION
Your telephone conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most
telephone lines. However, each device
you connect to the phone line draws
power from the phone line. We refer to
this power draw as the device’s ringer
equivalence number, or REN. The REN
is on the bottom of the base.
FCC STATEMENT
This telephone complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request,
provide the FCC Registration Number
and the REN to your phone company.
These numbers are on the label on the
bottom of the base.
You must not connect your phone to any
of the following:
• coin-operated systems
If you are using more than one phone or
other device on the line, add up all the
RENs. If the total is more than five (three
in rural areas), your phone might not
ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

INSTALLATION
INSTALLING THE
HANDSET’S
ANTENNA
Insert the antenna into the
hole on the top of the handset, then twist the antenna
clockwise until it is secure.
• The USOC number of the jack to be
installed is RJ11C (RJ11W if you
want to mount it on a wall plate).
illus
Power the ET-927 using the supplied
9V, 500-mA AC adapter.
Cautions:
You must use a Class 2
power source that supplies
9V DC and delivers at least
500 mA. Its center tip must be set to
positive and its plug must fit the ET927's DC 9V jack. The supplied
adapter meets these specifications.
Using an adapter that does not meet
these specifications could damage
the phone or the adapter.
!
SELECTING A LOCATION
You can place the phone on a desk top,
or mount it on a wall plate or directly on
a wall. Select a location that is:
• near an AC outlet
• near a telephone line jack
• away from electrical machinery,
electrical appliances, metal walls or
filing cabinets, wireless intercoms,
alarms, and room monitors
• away from other cordless phones
The base’s location affects the phone’s
range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides
the best performance.
Notes:
• Your telephone connects directly to
a modular telephone line jack. If
your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring
yourself, using jacks and adapters
available at your local RadioShack
store. Or, you can let the phone
company update the wiring for you.

PREPARATION
CONNECTING AND
CHARGING THE BATTERY
PACK
The ET-927 comes with a rechargeable
nickel-cadmium battery pack in the
handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the
battery pack, then charge it for about 24
hours.
1. Slide off the handset’s battery compartment cover.
• You can hang the handset face up
on the base if it is wall-mounted
(using the slot on the back of the
handset); however, the battery pack
will not fully charge in this position.
• When you first use your phone after
charging or recharging the battery
pack, the handset might not work or
it might sound an error tone when
you press TALK. If this happens,
place the handset on the base for
about 5 seconds, then try again.
• If the CHARGE indicator does not
light when you place the handset on
the cradle, be sure the battery pack
and AC adapter are correctly and
securely connected.
Illus
2. Insert the battery pack’s
connector with its flat
side up into the phone’s
socket. The connector
fits only one way.
Notes:
illus of indicator
location
Illus
3. Replace the cover.
To charge the battery pack, place the
handset on the base.
Recharge the battery pack when the
BATT LOW indicator on the handset
lights.
Also, check the charging contacts
on both the handset and base. If the
contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean
them with a pencil eraser.

If the battery and AC connections
are correct and secure and the
charging contacts are clean, the battery might be fully charged. This is
not a malfunction.
11
43-1097a.fm Page 12 Tuesday, August 31, 1999 10:01 PM
• If the phone stops operating properly, check the base’s phone line
cord and AC adapter connections. If
the connections are secure but the
phone still does not work, unplug
the base’s AC adapter from the AC
outlet and disconnect the handset’s
battery pack. Wait 3 minutes, then
reconnect the battery pack and plug
the AC adapter back into the AC
outlet. The phone should operate
properly.
• If the battery pack becomes weak,
the handset sounds a short beep
every 16 seconds during a call and
the BATT LOW indicator flashes.
Within about 10 minutes, the phone
will automatically disconnect. Recharge the battery pack.
• If the battery pack loses its charge
completely or the base loses power
while the handset is away from it,
the security access-protection code
needs to be reset. To reset the security code, place the handset on the
base. If it was the handset that lost
power, leave the handset on the
base to charge the battery pack.
• About once a month, fully discharge
the battery pack by keeping the
handset off the base until the BATT
LOW indicator turns on. Otherwise,
it loses its ability to fully recharge,
and you might have to recharge and
replace it more often.
SETTING THE DIALING
MODE
Set T/P (Tone/Pulse) for the type of service you have. If you are not sure which
type you have, do this test after the battery pack is fully charged.
1. Set T/P on the back of base to T.
Illus
2. Press TALK and listen for a dial
tone.
Illus
3. Press any number other than 0.
Note: If your phone system requires
that you dial an access code (9, for
example) before you dial an outside
number, do not press the access
code either.
If the dial tone stops, you have
touch-tone service. Leave T/P set to
T.
If the tone continues, you have
pulse (rotary) service. Set T/P to P.
4. To hang up, either place the handset
on the base or press TALK so the
TALK indicator on the handset and
the IN USE indicator on the base
turn off.

43-1097a.fm Page 13 Tuesday, August 31, 1999 10:01 PM
ADJUSTING THE
RINGERS
The ET-927’s handset and base each
have four different ringer tones. You can
set the base’s and handset’s ringer tone,
or turn off the ringer on either or both.
Note: Even if you turn off the ringer on
the handset or base, you can still make
calls using that keypad, and you can still
answer calls if you hear another phone
on that same line ring (see “Operation”
on Page 14).
Setting the Ringer’s Volume
Turning On/Off the Ringers
To have the base ring when a call
comes in, set RINGER ON/OFF on the
back of the base to ON.
Illus
To have it not sound, set RINGER ON/
OFF to OFF.
To have the handset ring when a call
comes in, set RINGER ON/OFF on the
handset’s left side to ON.
To adjust the ringer’s volume when the
phone is not in use, repeatedly press
VOLUME ▲ or ▼ on the handset.
Checking/Setting the Ringer
Tone
The base and handset are both preset
to use the same ringer tone (1). To
change or hear the different tones, press
FLASH then 1, 2, 3, or 4 when the phone
is not in use. (The last number button
you pressed is the tone you will hear.)

lights steadily.
Illus
Press MUTE again to resume your
phone conversation. The BATT LOW indicator turns off.
USING TONE SERVICES
ON A PULSE LINE
Some special services, such as bankby-phone, require tone signals. If you
have pulse service, you can still use
these services.
With T/P set to P, just press
when
you want to begin sending tones. Any
additional numbers you dial are sent as
tone signals. When you hang up, the
phone automatically resets to the pulse
mode.

Notes:
• You must complete these steps
within 30 seconds of each other. If
you do not, the ET-927 sounds a
long beep, all indicators stop flashing, and you must start over again at
Step 1.
• You can store special banking or
telephone service numbers (such as
access codes or account numbers)
in memory, but for security purposes, we recommend that you do
not store private numbers (such as
personal identification numbers or
passwords) in memory.
1. Press MEM (memory) on the handset. The TALK indicator on the

• To erase a number from memory,
repeat Steps 1 and 3, skipping Step
2.
Storing a Pause
In some telephone systems, you must
dial an access code (9, for example) and
wait for a second dial tone before you
can dial an outside number. You can
store the access code with the phone
number. However, you should also store
a pause after the access code to allow
the outside line time to connect.
Illus

Dialing a Stored Number
USING THE INTERCOM
To dial a stored number, when you hear
the dial tone, press MEM then the desired memory location number (01–20).
You can use the ET-927 as a two-way
pager and intercom between the base
and the handset. This is useful if the
handset is away from the base and you
want to locate it, or if you want to have a
conversation between someone with the
handset and someone at the base.
Chain Dialing Service Numbers
You can make a call using more than
one of the ET-927’s memory locations.
This is called chain dialing. Chain dialing
is useful for dialing special services such
as alternate long distance or bank-byphone.
When calling special services, dial the
service’s main number first. Then, at the
appropriate place in the call, press MEM
and the number for the memory location
where the additional information is
stored.
Testing Stored Emergency
Numbers
If you store an emergency service’s
number (police department, fire department, ambulance) and you want to test
the stored number, make the test call
during the late evening or early morning
hours to avoid peak demand periods. Also, remain on the line to explain the reason for your call.
Notes:
• If a call comes in during an intercom
conversation, the person using the
handset can answer the call, but the
intercom call is disconnected.
• If the handset is in use when it
receives a page, the person using
the handset hears one quiet ring
over the phone.

OUT-OF-RANGE
INDICATIONS
If you move the ET-927’s handset out of
the base’s range, the handset will not
operate properly.
If you move the handset out of the
base’s range when the handset is not in
use, the handset’s BATT LOW indicator
flashes and the handset beeps twice at
16-second intervals. When you move
the handset back within range of the
base again, the out-of-range indications
stop.
If you move the handset out of the
base’s range while a call is in progress,
two beeps sound through the earpiece
every 3–4 seconds and the BATT LOW
indicator flashes, and you and the other
party cannot hear each other.
If you move the handset back within the
base’s range within 30 seconds, the outof-range indications stop, and you can
resume your phone conversation.
If you keep the handset out of the base’s
range for 30 seconds or more, two
beeps sound through the earpiece every
3–4 seconds and the BATT LOW indicator flashes. After 30 seconds, the call is
disconnected, the handset beeps twice
every 16 seconds and the BATT LOW
indicator keeps flashing. When you
move the handset back within range of
the base again, the out-of-range indications stop.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack ET-927 Digital Spread Spectrum 900 MHz Cordless Telephone is
an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help
you care for your phone so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the phone dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might
contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Use and store the phone only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the phone away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear
of parts.
Handle the phone gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit
boards and cases and can cause the phone to work improperly.
Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type. Batteries can leak chemicals that damage your phone’s electronic parts.
Wipe the phone with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do
not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean
the phone.
Modifying or tampering with the phone’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If
your phone is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for
assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask
you to disconnect your phone until you have resolved the problem.

useful life, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Contact
your local, county, or state hazardous
waste management authorities for information on recycling or disposal programs in your area or call 1-800-8437422. Some options that might be available are: municipal curbside collection,
drop-off boxes at retailers such as your
local RadioShack store, recycling collection centers, and mail-back programs.

If you follow the instructions in “Connecting and Charging the Battery Pack” on
Page 11, the battery pack should last
about one year. If the battery pack will
not hold a charge for more than 2 hours
after an overnight charge, replace it with
a new 3.6V, 600 mAh battery pack that
has a connector which fits the socket in
the battery compartment. You can order
a replacement battery pack through your
local RadioShack store.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
In the unlikely event that your phone
causes problems on the phone line, the
phone company can temporarily discontinue your service. The phone company
normally attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical,
the phone company notifies you as soon
as possible and advises you of your
right to file a complaint with the FCC.
Also, the phone company can make
changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the
operation of this telephone. The phone
company normally notifies you of these
changes in advance, so you can take
the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your phone service.
This equipment complies with the limits
for a Class B digital device as specified
in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits
provide reasonable protection against
radio and TV interference in a residential
area. However, your equipment might
cause TV or radio interference even
when it is operating properly.
To eliminate interference, you can try
one or more of the following corrective
measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving
antenna.
• Increase the distance between the
equipment and the radio or TV.
• Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the
radio or TV.
Consult your local RadioShack store if
the problem still exists.
LIGHTNING
Your phone has built-in protection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from
surges in phone line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking
the phone lines can damage your
phone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area which
has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your phone during
storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
