Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a
multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference between portable wireless telephones
and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a
breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other
persons using
wireless telephones.
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 . Move closer to the telephone base,
then press
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 whenever 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.
11
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 ÉtatsUnis, 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.
À propos des téléphones sans fil
• Alimentation électrique: 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.
• 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 courtcircuiter 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.
