Additional Battery Safety Precautions
Caution! To reduce the risk of fire or injury to persons by the battery, read and
follow these instructions.
1. Use only the appropriate type and size battery pack specified in the owner’s
manual.
2. Do not dispose of the battery pack in a fire. The cell may explode.

IMPORTANT ELECTRICAL CONSIDERATIONS
Unplug all electrical appliances when you know an electrical storm is
approaching. Lighting can pass through your household wiring and damage
any device connected to it. This phone is no exception.
Please do not attempt to unplug any
appliance during an electrical storm.
Range
Your new phone is designed to achieve the maximum possible range by
transmitting and receiving according to the highest specifications. We have rated
this phone to operate at a maximum distance with the qualification that the
range depends upon the environment in which the telephone is used. Many
4
Telephone Line Problems
If you are having trouble with your telephone service, you must first disconnect
your phone to determine if it is the cause of your problem. If you determine that it
is the cause, you must leave it disconnected until the trouble has been corrected.
Under power failure, this telephone may not operate. Please
ensure that a separate phone, not dependent on local power
is available during emergencies.
Radio Interference
Radio interference may occasionally cause buzzing and humming in your
cordless handset, or clicking noises in the base. This interference is caused by
external sources such as TV, refrigerator, vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting or
electrical storm. Your unit is NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises continue and are
too distracting, please check around your home to see what appliances may be
causing the problem. In addition, we recommend that the base not be plugged
into a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of the potential for
interference. Be certain that the antenna on the unit is raised vertically.
In the unlikely event that you consistently hear distracting transmissions on
your phone, you may be receiving radio signals from another cordless telephone
or other source of interference.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at frequencies
that may cause interference to nearby TV’s or VCR’s. To minimise or prevent
such interference, the base of the cordless telephone should not be placed near
or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is experienced, moving the cordless
telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the
interference.
More Than One Phone
Each telephone device that you connect draws power from the phone line. We refer
to the power drawn as the device’s Ringer Equivalence Number (REN). The REN is
shown at the bottom part of your telephone. 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 3,
your phones might not ring.

PRECAUTIONS
factors limit range, and it would be impossible to include all the variables in our
rating. The Maximum Range rating of this phone is meant to be used as a
means of comparison against other range claims.

Before connecting your the phone for the first time, fully
charge the rechargeable battery pack for 15-20 hours
without interruption.
1. Place the handset on the base.
2. Make sure that status LED lights.
If the LED doesn’t light, be sure the AC
adaptor is plugged in and the handset
makes good contact with the base
charging contacts.
▼
Charging optional battery pack

battery pack for use in your handset. You can obtain an extra battery
pack from your authorised Uniden dealer.
1. Position the battery pack so the contacts are faced up.
2. Slide the battery pack into
the charging compartment until it
locks into place. The compartment
has a latch that keeps the battery
in place.

15
INSTALLATION & ADJUSTING
Please visit your authorised
Uniden dealer to obtain an
extra battery pack.
▼
Low battery indicator
The low battery indicator shows when the
battery pack is very low and needs to be charged.
If the phone is not in use, the talk/batt low
LED flashes every four seconds. If the phone is in
use, the talk/batt low LED flashes every four
seconds and the handset beeps. Complete your
conversation as quickly as possible and return
the handset to the base for charging.
All rechargeable nickel-cadmium batteries
develop a “memory effect”. The memory effect
gradually reduces your talk and standby time.
▼
To avoid Memory Effect
On a monthly basis, use the phone until the talk/batt low LED indicator
flashes on the handset. Then charge the battery for 15-20 hours.
With normal usage, your battery should last about one year.
CLEANING THE BATTERY CONTACTS
To maintain a good charge, clean all charging contacts on the handset and base
about once a month. Use a pencil eraser or other contact cleaner. DO NOT use
liquids or solvents; you may damage your phone.
