When using your telephone equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury to persons, including the following: This unit is NOT waterproof. DO NOT expose this unit to rain or moisture. Do not use this product near water, for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement or near a swimming pool. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type) during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from lightning. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak. Use only the power cord and batteries indicated in this manual. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire. They may explode. Check with local codes for possible special disposal instructions. Do not place the handset in any charging cradle without the battery installed and the battery cover securely in place. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS! CAUTION! Risk of explosion if battery is replaced by an incorrect type! Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions. Do not open or mutilate the battery. Disconnect the battery before shipping this product. For more details, see the Important Information section. 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 them. 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 interference. . 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. * REV DOWN FIND DELETE PLAY/ UP FWD STOP Charging ANSWERING ON/OFF SYSTEM contacts STATUS Parts of the base MESSAGES/ MUTE REDIAL/ PAUSE TALK / FLASH DOWN CLEAR / INTERCOM PHONEBOOK / LEFT Display Earpiece Parts of the handset Charging contacts Microphone SPEAKER Twelvekey dial pad END MENU/ SELECT CALLER ID/ RIGHT UP STATUS Getting to Know Your Phone Base keys/LEDs and how they work Key (icon) What it does - In standby: increase the ringer volume.

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 volume. 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. 21 N��������������������������� 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 modems 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 location: - 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. If an Out of Range message displays, try moving closer to the base. If static is on all handsets or in all locations: - 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 up. - 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. 22 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: Handset Base 1. Disconnect the AC 1. Remove the battery cover and disconnect adapter to cut off the battery. the power. 2. Let dry for at least 3 days with the battery 2.

Recharge the 3 days before battery fully (15-20 hours) before using. reconnecting. CAUTION! DO NOT use a microwave oven to speed up the drying process. This will cause permanent damage to the handset, base and the microwave oven. AC Adapter and Battery Information • Use only the supplied AC adapters. Be sure to use the proper adapter for the base & any chargers. • Do not place the power cord where it creates a trip hazard or where it could become chafed and create a Base/Charger fire or electrical hazard. Part number PS-0035 • Do not place the unit in direct AC adapter Input voltage 120V AC, 60 Hz sunlight or subject it to high temperatures. Output voltage 8V AC @ 300mA • Fully charged, the battery Part number BT-1007 Battery should provide about 10 pack Capacity 500mAh, 2.4V DC hours of talk time and about 7 23 days of standby time. For best results, return the handset to the cradle after each call to keep it fully charged. • When the battery gets too low, the handset shows a low battery alert. If you hear a strange beep during a call, check the display: if you see the low battery alert, finish your conversation as quickly as possible and return the handset to the cradle. If the handset is in standby, none of the keys will operate. • With normal use, the battery should last about one year. Replace the battery when the talk time becomes short even when the battery is charged.
