Operating range
This cordless telephone operates with the maximum power allowed by the Federal Communications
Commission (FCC). Even so, this handset and telephone base can communicate over only a certain distance
- which can vary with the locations of the telephone base and handset, the weather, and the layout of your
home or office.
When the handset is out of range, the handset displays Out of range or no pwr at base.
If there is a call while the handset is out of range, it may not ring, or if it does ring, the call may not connect
well when you press /HOME. Move closer to the telephone base, then press /HOME to answer the call.
If the handset moves out of range during a telephone conversation, there may be interference. To improve
reception, move closer to the telephone base.
ECO mode
This power conserving technology reduces power consumption for optimal battery performance. The ECO
mode activates automatically when the handset is synchronized with the telephone base.
Maintenance
Taking care of your telephone
Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.
Avoid rough treatment
Place the handset down gently. Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need
to ship it.
Avoid water
Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset outdoors in the rain, or handle it with
wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.
Electrical storms
Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your own safety,
take caution when using electrical appliances during storms.
Cleaning your telephone
Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft
cloth slightly dampened with water or mild soap. Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.
Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or standing in
water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE
POWER CORD AND TELEPHONE LINE CORD FROM THE WALL. Then remove the telephone by the
unplugged cords.
About cordless telephones
• Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations.
Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the cordless handset by radio
waves, so there is a possibility that the cordless telephone conversations could be intercepted by radio
receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think of
cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.
• Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a working
electrical outlet. The electrical outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made
from the cordless handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical power
is interrupted.
• Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause
interference to televisions and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the
telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is
experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR often reduces or
eliminates the interference.
• Rechargeable batteries: Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with
conducting material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and
cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.
• Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do not
burn or puncture the battery. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release
caustic material which could cause injury.

Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (s’applique uniquement aux téléphones numériques sans fil) :
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR)’, une firme de recherche indépendante, a mené
une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des interférences entre les téléphones sans fil portatifs et les stimulateurs
cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme. Appuyée par l’Administration des aliments et drogues (FDA) des
États-Unis, la firme WTR recommande aux médecins :
Avis aux détenteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques
• Ils doivent tenir le téléphone sans fil à une distance d’au moins six pouces du stimulateur cardiaque.
• Ils ne doivent PAS placer le téléphone sans fil directement sur le stimulateur cardiaque, tel que dans
une poche de chemise, lorsque celui-ci est en marche.
• Ils doivent utiliser le téléphone sans fil en l’appuyant sur l’oreille qui se trouve dans la direction opposée
au stimulateur cardiaque.
L’étude effectuée par l’organisme WRS n’a pas identifié de risque pour les détenteurs de simulateurs
cardiaques causés par les gens qui utilisent un téléphone sans fil à proximité de ceux-ci.
Soin général à apporter au produit
MISE EN GARDE : Rappelez-vous que les appareils électriques peuvent causer des blessures sérieuses
s’ils sont utilisés lorsque vous êtes mouillés ou lorsque vous êtes debout dans l’eau. Si le socle du téléphone
tombe à l’eau, NE LE RÉCUPÉREZ PAS AVANT D’AVOIR DÉBRANCHÉ LE CORDON D’ALIMENTATION ET
LE FIL TÉLÉPHONIQUE DES PRISES MURALES. Ensuite, récupérez-le en tenant les cordons débranchés.
À propos des téléphones sans fil
• Confidentialité : Les mêmes caractéristiques qui constituent des avantages pour les téléphones sans
fil affichent également des restrictions. Les appels téléphoniques sont transmis entre le combiné sans
fil et le socle par le biais d’ondes radio ; il y a donc la possibilité que vos conversations téléphoniques
sans fil soient interceptées par des équipements de réception radio se trouvant dans la portée du
combiné sans fil. Pour cette raison, vous ne devez pas percevoir les communications téléphoniques
sans fil comme étant aussi confidentielles que celles des téléphones à cordons.
• Alimentation électrique : Le socle de ce téléphone sans fil doit être branché à une prise électrique
fonctionnelle. La prise électrique ne doit pas être contrôlée par un interrupteur mural. Les appels ne
pourront pas être effectués du combiné sans fil si le socle est débranché ou mis hors tension ou si le
courant est coupé.
• Possibilité d’interférences aux téléviseurs : Certains téléphones sans fil fonctionnent sur des
fréquences pouvant causer des interférences aux téléviseurs et aux magnétoscopes. Pour réduire ou
prévenir de telles interférences, ne placez pas le socle du téléphone sans fil près ou sur un téléviseur
ou magnétoscope. S’il y a présence de parasites, il est conseillé d’éloigner le téléphone sans fil du
téléviseur ou du magnétoscope afin de réduire possiblement les interférences.
• Piles rechargeables : Manipulez les piles avec soin afin de ne pas les court-circuiter avec des
bagues, bracelets ou clés. Les piles ou le conducteur peut surchauffer et causer des blessures.
Respectez la polarité adéquate entre la pile et le chargeur.
• Les bloc-piles rechargeables à l’hydrure métallique de nickel : Jetez ces blocs-piles de manière
écologique et sécuritaire. Ne les incinérez pas et ne les percez pas. Tel que les autres piles de ce type,
elles pourraient dégager une matière toxique qui peut causer des blessures corporelles si elles sont
brûlées ou percées.

Limited warranty
What does this limited warranty cover?
The manufacturer of this VTech Product warrants to the holder of a valid proof of purchase (“Consumer” or
“you”) that the Product and all accessories provided in the sales package (“Product”) are free from defects
in material and workmanship, pursuant to the following terms and conditions, when installed and used
normally and in accordance with the Product operating instructions. This limited warranty extends only to the

What will VTech do if the Product is not free from defects in materials and workmanship during the
limited warranty period (“Materially Defective Product”)?
During the limited warranty period, VTech’s authorized service representative will repair or replace at
VTech’s option, without charge, a Materially Defective Product. If we repair the Product, we may use new
or refurbished replacement parts. If we choose to replace the Product, we may replace it with a new or
refurbished Product of the same or similar design. We will retain defective parts, modules, or equipment.
Repair or replacement of the Product, at VTech’s option, is your exclusive remedy. VTech will return the
repaired or replacement Products to you in working condition. You should expect the repair or replacement to
take approximately 30 days.
How long is the limited warranty period?
The limited warranty period for the Product extends for ONE (1) YEAR from the date of purchase. If VTech
repairs or replaces a Materially Defective Product under the terms of this limited warranty, this limited
warranty also applies to the repaired or replacement Product for a period of either (a) 90 days from the date
the repaired or replacement Product is shipped to you or (b) the time remaining on the original one-year
warranty; whichever is longer.
What is not covered by this limited warranty?
This limited warranty does not cover:
1. Product that has been subjected to misuse, accident, shipping or other physical damage, improper
installation, abnormal operation or handling, neglect, inundation, fire, water or other liquid intrusion; or
2. Product that has been damaged due to repair, alteration or modification by anyone other than an
authorized service representative of VTech; or
3. Product to the extent that the problem experienced is caused by signal conditions, network reliability, or
cable or antenna systems; or
4. Product to the extent that the problem is caused by use with non-VTech accessories; or
5. Product whose warranty/quality stickers, product serial number plates or electronic serial numbers have
been removed, altered or rendered illegible; or
6. Product purchased, used, serviced, or shipped for repair from outside the United States of America or
