Getting Started
Installing Your Phone
Charge the Battery
1. Unpack all handsets, battery packs,
and battery covers. If you need to
remove a battery cover, press in on
the notch and slide the cover down
and off.
2. Line up the battery connector with the jack inside the handset.
(The battery connector will only fit one way.)
. Push the connector in until it clicks into place; tug gently on the
wires to make sure the battery pack is securely connected.
4. Replace the battery cover and slide it into place.
. Connect the AC adapters to the AC IN 8V jacks on the base and on
each charger. Set the plugs into the notches.
. Plug the other end of the adapters into standard 120V AC outlets.
7. Place one handset in the base and the other(s) in the charger(s)
with the displays facing forward. The display on each handset
should light up; if it doesn’t, reseat the handset or try plugging the
AC adapter into a different outlet.
Charge all handsets completely (about 15 hours) before using
Connect the Telephone Cord
Use the telephone cord to connect the TEL LINE jack on the base to a
standard telephone wall jack.
Test the Connection
1. Pick up the handset from the cradle and press Talk. You should
hear a dial tone, and the display should say Talk.
 If you don't hear a dial tone or the display says Check Tel Line, try
checking the connection between the base and the phone jack.
2. Make a quick test call. (Press End to hang up.)
 If you keep hearing a dial tone, try changing to pulse dialing mode.
 If there is a lot of noise, see page 21 for tips on avoiding
. Test all your handsets the same way. If you can't get a dial tone, try
moving the handset closer to the base.
Changing from Tone to Pulse Dialing
Your phone communicates with the telephone network in two ways:
tone dialing or pulse dialing. Most telephone companies use tone
dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to
change your phone’s dial mode.
1. From a handset, open the menu and select Global Setup. (See page
8 for details on using the menu.)
2. Select Dial Mode, then select Pulse. The phone sounds a
confirmation tone.
If you use pulse dialing and you need to send DTMF tones during a call
(if you're using an automated response system, for example), press
to temporarily switch to tone dialing. When the call ends, the phone
automatically returns to pulse dialing mode.

Weak or Hard To Hear Audio
If a caller’s voice sounds weak or
soft, the signal might be blocked
by large metal objects or walls;
you might also be too far from
the base, or the handset’s battery
may be weak.
 Try moving around while
you’re on a call or moving
closer to the base to see if the
sound gets louder.
 Make sure the handset’s
battery is fully charged.
 Try adjusting the earpiece
Do you use a T-Coil hearing aid?
• If you have a hearing aid equipped
with a telecoil (T-coil) feature, the
interaction between the hearing aid
& digital cordless phones can cause
noise in the handset. If you have a Tcoil hearing aid & you have problems
with noise on the line, try turning on
T-coil mode. Open the menu. Select
Handset Setup, then select T-coil.
• Using T-coil mode can shorten the
handset’s talk time; make sure to
watch the battery status and keep
the battery charged.
oise or Static on the Line
Interference is the most common cause of noise or static on a cordless
phone. Here are some common sources of interference:
 electrical appliances, especially microwave ovens
 computer equipment, especially wireless LAN equipment and DSL
 radio-based wireless devices, such as room monitors, wireless
controllers, or wireless headphones or speakers
 fluorescent light fixtures (especially if giving off a buzzing noise)
 other services that use your phone line, like alarm systems,
intercom systems, or broadband Internet service
If static is on 1 handset or in 1
- Check nearby for one of the
common interference sources.
- Try moving the handset away
from a suspected source, or try
moving the suspected source so
it’s not between the handset and
the base.
- There is always more noise at
the edges of the base's range.

- Check near the base for the
source of interference.
- Try moving the base away
from a suspected source, or
turn off the source if possible.
- If the base has an adjustable
antenna, try raising the
antenna so it stands straight
- If you have any service that
uses the phone line, you might
need a filter (see below).
Installing a Line Filter or DSL Filter
Sometimes, broadband Internet services that use the telephone line
can interfere with phones. One of these services−DSL−often causes
static on telephones. A DSL filter or telephone line filter usually solves
this problem. The technician who installed your DSL service might
have left some filters for you; if not, call your DSL provider or look in
any electronics store.
Plug the DSL filter into the telephone wall jack and plug your phone’s
base into the filter. Make a test call to make sure the noise is gone.
Liquid Damage
Moisture and liquid can damage your cordless phone.
 If the exterior housing of the handset or base is exposed to moisture
or liquid, wipe off the liquid, and use as normal.
 If moisture or liquid is inside the plastic housing (i.e. liquid can
be heard in the phone or liquid has entered the handset battery
compartment or vent openings on the base), follow these steps:

The REN is used to determine the
number of devices that may be connected to a phone line. Excessive RENs
on a phone line may result in devices
not ringing in response to an incoming
call. In most but not all areas, the sum
of RENs should not exceed five (5.0).
To be certain of the number of devices
that may be connected to a line, as
determined by the total RENs, contact
the telephone provider. The REN for
this product is part of the product
identifier that has the format US:
