For Best Performance
Battery Charge
A rechargeable Ni-Cd battery powers
the handset. Charge the battery for about
6 hours before initial use (p. 15).
Clean the handset and the base unit
charge contacts with a soft, dry cloth
once a month. Clean more often if the unit
is subject to grease, dust or high
humidity. Otherwise the battery may not
charge properly.
Base Unit Location/Noise
Calls are transmitted between the base unit and the handset using
wireless radio waves. For maximum distance and noise-free
operation, the recommended base unit location is:
Away from electrical appliances
such as a TV, personal computer,
cellular phone charging units or
another cordless phone.
In a HIGH and CENTRAL location
with no obstructions such as walls.
Raise the
antenna.
≥If more than one cordless phone is being used and your handset is near another
cordless phone’s base unit, noise may be heard. Move away from the other
cordless phone’s base unit and closer to your base unit.

≥Clean the handset and the base unit charge contacts with a soft, dry cloth
once a month. Clean more often if the unit is subject to grease, dust or
high humidity. Otherwise the battery may not charge properly.
≥If the battery is fully charged, you do not have to place the handset on the base
unit until “Recharge battery” is displayed and/or “

call. When the 51st call is received, the first call is deleted.
Using the list, you can automatically call back a caller. You can store
the callers’ numbers from the Caller List into the directory.
When a second call is received while talking, the new caller’s phone
number will be displayed (p. 62).

WARNING:
TO PREVENT FIRE OR SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE THIS
PRODUCT TO RAIN OR ANY TYPE OF MOISTURE.
Medical
Consult the manufacture of any personal medical device, such as
pacemakers, to determine if they are adequately shielded from external
RF (radio frequency) energy. (The unit operates in the frequency range of
917MHz to 927MHz for Australia and 923MHz to 927MHz for New
Zealand, and the power output level can range from 0.001 watts to
0.1 watts.) Do not use the unit in health care facilities if any regulations
posted in the area instruct you not to do so. Hospitals or health care
facilities may be using equipment that could be sensitive to external RF
(radio frequency) energy.
When a failure occurs which results in the internal parts becoming
accessible, disconnect AC adaptor immediately and return this unit to the
place of purchase or service centre.
If there is any trouble, disconnect the unit from the telephone line and
connect a known working phone. If the known working phone operates
properly, do not reconnect the unit to the telephone line until the trouble
has been repaired. If the known working phone does not operate properly,
consult with your telephone company.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with AS/NZS
3548:1995 limits for electromagnetic interference. Any modifications to
any part of the system or to any peripherals may void the EMC
compliance of the system or the peripherals.

Important Information (For Australia only)
Instructions to customer
Installation
Attached to this apparatus is an approval label. This label is evidence that
it is a “Permitted Attachment” which has been authorised to be connected
to your telephone service.
Conditions relating to connection and operation of this Permitted
Attachment are contained in Telecommunications General By-Law
220 (5).
You are authorised to install this Permitted Attachment yourself by
plugging it into the line socket of any regular telephone. You may connect
it in place of your existing telephone or to any spare telephone socket
installed in your premises.
To disconnect your existing telephone you must first remove its plug from
the line socket. You can then insert the plug of your Permitted Attachment
into the socket and use your equipment.
If the plug of your existing telephone cannot be readily removed, you will
have to remove the screw securing it. To do this proceed as follows:
1. Loosen screw “A” sufficiently to remove the socket cover. (See Fig. 1.)
2. Remove screw “B” and withdraw the plug. (See Fig. 2.)
3. Replace screw “B”. (See Fig. 3.) Ensure that it screws completely into
the socket recess. (If the screw is too long, increase the hole depth or
replace the screw with one 5 mm shorter.)
4. Replace socket cover and tighten screw “A”. (See Fig. 4.)

PQQX12877ZA-6 00.8.23 10:54 AM y [ W 99
If you are satisfied with the operation of your telephone service after
plugging in your Permitted Attachment, your installation is completed.
You will be unable to connect this Permitted Attachment if your telephone
service consists only of a wall phone or an old style telephone which is
not connected by means of a modern plug and socket. In such cases a
new socket will need to be installed.
Should the Permitted Attachment not operate when plugged into a socket,
it is either faulty or unsuitable for operation with your telephone service. It
should be returned to the store where purchased.
Service difficulties
If at any time a fault occurs on your telephone service carry out the
following checks before you call for service:
≥Disconnect the Permitted Attachment and try using the service with the
normal telephone.
≥If the telephone service then operates satisfactorily, the fault is in your
Permitted Attachment. Leave the Permitted Attachment disconnected
and report the fault to its supplier or agent to arrange for repair.
≥If when using the telephone the service is still faulty, report the fault to
“Service Difficulties and Faults” for attention.
You are required to keep this Permitted Attachment in good working order
while it is connected to your telephone service. Its construction or internal
circuit must not be modified in any way without permission.
WARNING
This cordless telephone system does not incorporate provision for
secrecy of conversations. Appropriately tuned radio equipment and other
cordless telephone systems in close proximity may be used by a third
party to monitor and possibly interrupt conversations in progress when
this system is on radio operation.
