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

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
CALLER ID
Problem
Solution
No Display
• If you are using battery power, this is a normal
condition unless you press a button or the
phone is receiving a call.
Incoming calls
are not displayed.
• Did you order Caller ID service from your local
telephone company? This unit requires that
you subscribe to Caller ID service in
order to work.
LINE ERROR Message
is Displayed
• The unit displays this message if it detects
anything other than valid Caller ID information
during the silent period after the first ring.
This message indicates either the presence of
noises on the line, or that an invalid message
has been sent from the telephone company.
GENERAL PRODUCT CARE
To keep your Caller ID phone working and looking good, follow these guidelines:
• Avoid putting it 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 and other rough treatment of the unit.
• Clean 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 it at a later date.
18
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.
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.
INTERFERENCE INFORMATION
This Class B digital apparatus meets all requirements of the Canadian InterferenceCausing Equipment Regulations.
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy which may interfere
with residential radio and television reception if not properly installed and used in
accordance with instructions contained in this manual. Reasonable protection
against such interference is ensured, although there is no guarantee this will not
occur in a given installation. If interference is suspected and verified by switching
this equipment on and off, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference
by one or more of the following measures: Reorient the radio/television receiver’s
antenna, relocate the equipment with respect to the receiver, plug the equipment
and receiver into separate circuit outlets. The user may also wish to consult a
qualified radio/television technician for additional suggestions. This equipment has
been fully tested and complies with all limits for Class B computing devices
pursuant to part 15, Sub-part J, FCC Rules and Regulations.
