INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the FF 555 cordless phone. This new frequency
product offers 8 channel auto selection, memory storage and paging.
Please read this user guide before use.
IMPORTANT
Disconnect your cordless telephone during a thunderstorm.
Do not install in damp or high humidity locations, such as greenhouses,
garages or bathrooms.
Do not use in the rain, near a bath, etc., or with wet hands. If any damage
is caused by such elements it is not covered by the guarantee.
PART 1: Installing The phone 4
It is essential that the base unit and the handset can receive and transmit good
radio signals. The signal strength depends upon the location of the base unit
and how the telescopic aerial is positioned.
LOCATE THE BASE UNIT

dialling
It is important that the Base Unit
aerial is aligned vertically and fully
extended for best performance.
IF THE TELEPHONE LINE CONTAINS AN UNACCEPTABLE LEVEL OF
NOISE, RE-SITE THE BASE UNIT OR ADJUST THE AERIAL.
PART 1: Handset Battery Care 6
Tr
AFTER INITIAL CHARGING the power adaptor
must remain connected to the mains and mains
power switched on. It is recommended that the
handset is left on the cradle overnight, ensuring a
fully charged battery and maximum ‘in use’ time.
If the phone is not to be used for a substantial
period of time, i.e., holidays, disconnect the mains
power adaptor. when power is reconnected it will be
necessary to re-charge the handset for 16 hours.
Any stored memories may have to be
re-programmed.
THE BATTERY SHOULD HOLD ITS CHARGE for
about seven days when off the base unit,
depending on how often the handset is used.
TO MAINTAIN OPTIMUM CONDITION, allow
handset battery to fully discharge approximately
every 4 months. For example, wait until the BATT
LOW LED illuminates on the handset, then replace
the handset on the Base Unit and re-charge for 16
hours.
BELT CLIP
If required, the handset can be attached to a belt.
1. Push T-clip on the top of the handset
upwards and remove.
2. Insert belt clip.
To remove belt clip: push and hold the small square
release mechanism at the top of the clip away from
the phone and push clip upwards.

fax machines and other electrical equipment can cause noise if they are not
adequately suppressed.

Range poor: + If you press the Talk Key when the
Handset beeps: handset is out of operating range of the base
station, you will hear two beeps from the handset.
The range of a cordless phone can be reduced by the presence of conductive
objects, walls etc., in and around its transmission path. These objects can give
rise to dead spots where transmission is impossible. It is normally possible to
improve the performance to a satisfactory level by moving one of the units.
Because of the variability of environment encountered, it is not possible to give a
range which will be met in all circumstances. However, the range in normal
circumstances is more than adequate for use in and around the average home.
Technical Assistance
If you cannot resolve the fault using the fault finder section, please telephone the
Technical Support Group on: 01527 585522.
PART 3: Battery Replacement 15
The rechargeable batteries in the handset will last for up to two years or 600
charge cycles without noticeable loss of performance. However, like all
rechargeable batteries, their ability to hold a charge will reduce eventually.
You will need to replace the battery if:
1: The battery will not hold a charge for more than two hours, even after an
overnight recharge.
2: There are signs of leakage.
How to change the rechargeable battery:
1: Slide the battery compartment cover down and remove it from the handset.
2: Gently pull the battery wires until the wire connector comes out of the
socket.
3: Remove the battery pack. Insert and connect the new battery pack.
4: Replace the battery compartment cover.
IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU RECHARGE THE HANDSET FOR 16
HOURS to ensure maximum "in use" time.
Important note: Dispose of the old battery safely. Do not dispose of in a fire.

PART 3: Approved Use 16
The FF 555 is approved for connection to:
(a) Public Switch Telephone Networks (PSTN)
(b) Extensions via sockets provided for a direct exchange line.
(c) PABX providing secondary proceed indication.
For use with the following facilities:
- Cordless telephone
- Register recall (TBR)
- Automatic storage of last number dialled
- MF signalling
s apparatus should not be used as an extension to a payphone.
This apparatus should not be connected to a shared service (party line).
Any other usage will invalidate the approval of this apparatus if as a result it then
ceases to conform to the standards against which approval was granted.
You are recommended to keep a note near the telephone of the number to ring
for emergency services (which may be different if you are connected to a PABX)
and of the telephone number of your incoming line.
The power supply output and the handset charger contacts are SELV circuits as
defined in EN41003.
It is possible to dial 999 and/or the new 112 Emergency Number on this
telephone for the purpose of making calls to the emergency service, only if the
handset batteries are charged and the base unit is plugged into the mains.
PABX CONNECTION ONLY
When used as an extension instrument, this telephone is only approved for use
with compatible PABX's. Please consult your Network Operator for advice on
whether your PABX is compatible, as it cannot be guaranteed that the apparatus
will operate correctly under all possible conditions of connection to compatible
PABX's.
WARNING: This apparatus is intended for use when supplied from the Audioline
power adaptor type PS555. Other usage will invalidate any approval given to this
apparatus if as a result, it ceases to comply with the edition of EN 41003 to which
it was approved.
PART 3: Technical Information 17
RADIO FREQUENCIES
This product has been designed to operate on radio frequencies which have
been assigned to the use of cordless telephones. As the use of cordless
telephones becomes more widespread, users may experience a reduction in the
quality of service obtainable from this apparatus. Users are advised that the
received conversation during a call may be overheard by some specialised radio
receivers since it is transmitted from the base unit to the handset in the same
band of frequencies.
Calls, including 999/112, may prove impossible to make due to:
- Radio channel interference
- Discharged handset batteries
- Mains power failure
REN Number
The REN number of the FF 555 is 1. The REN number (Ringer Equivalence
Number) is designated to represent the amount of power that a telephone draws
from its telephone line. Most normal exchange lines have a REN capacity of 4. If
you wish to connect any other equipment to the line, simply add up the REN
numbers of each piece and ensure that the total does not exceed 4. If you
exceed a REN number of 4 on your line, one telephone may not ring. If the
equipment is BT supplied then, unless otherwise marked, the REN should also
be assumed to be 1.
special features
8 CHANNEL AUTO SCAN
Eight channels are available for ALL cordless phones. Most cordless phones can
access only 1,2 or 4 channels. Audioline cordless phones scan all eight channesi
automatically - to give you the clearest line every time.
DIGICLEAR PLUS NOISE REDUCTION™
Digiclear Plus Noise Reduction ™ significantly cuts down background
interference such as static hiss and distortion which reduce performance and
usability in standard cordless phones. Digiclear Plus Noise Reduction ™ uses a
special signal expansion and compression circuit to virtually eliminate unwanted
noise leaving conversation really crisp and clear.
DYNAMIC DIGITAL CALL GUARD
The handset and base unit of your FF 555 are identified with an electronic code
number. When turned on and throughout a call, the handset and base send a dig-
ital code to each other. This continuous electronic “*handshaking” protects you
from another cordless phone accessing your telephone line. The FF 555 has
more than 65,000 different code combinations.
HEARING AID FACILITY
The FF 555 can be used with suitable hearing aids which are switched to the T°
position. (Check your hearing aid instructions for this mode of operation).
