telephone base or handset because
they may touch dangerous voltage
points or create a short circuit. Never
spill liquid of any kind on the product.
To reduce the risk of electric shock,
do not disassemble this product,
but take it to an authorized service
facility. Opening or removing parts of
the telephone base or handset other
than specified access doors may
expose you to dangerous voltages or
other risks. Incorrect reassembling
can cause electric shock when the
product is subsequently used.
Do not overload wall outlets and
extension cords.
Unplug this product from the wall
outlet and refer servicing to an
authorized service facility under the
following conditions:
! When the power supply cord or
plug is damaged or frayed.
! If liquid has been spilled onto the
product.
! If the product has been exposed to
rain or water.
! If the product does not operate
normally by following the operating
instructions. Adjust only those
controls that are covered by the
operation instructions. Improper

associated with the closing of any
electrical circuit. The user should
not plug the phone into a power
outlet, and should not put a charged
handset into the cradle, if the phone is
located in an environment containing
concentrations of flammable or
flame-supporting gases, unless there
is adequate ventilation. A spark in
such an environment could create a
fire or explosion. Such environments
might include: medical use of oxygen
without adequate ventilation; industrial
gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline
vapors; etc.); a leak of natural gas;
etc.
15. Only put the handset of your

Battery
! CAUTION: Use Only Supplied Battery.
! Do not dispose of the battery in a fire.
Check with local waste management
codes for special disposal instructions.
! Do not open or mutilate the battery.
Released electrolyte is corrosive and
may cause burns or injury to the eyes
or skin. The electrolyte may be toxic if

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.
Note: The CareLine™ transmitter is a
wireless telephone, and it should not be
used in the pendant form (hanging from
a necklace over the heart) by persons
wearing pacemakers. Pacemaker patients
should use the CareLine™ product in
belt-clip form only.
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.

Frequently asked
questions
I cannot dial
out.
Below are the questions most frequently
asked about the cordless telephone.
If you cannot find the answer to your

www.vtechphones.com or call
1 (800) 595-9511 for customer service.
My telephone
does not work
at all.
The display
shows No line.
I cannot hear
the dial tone.
Make sure there is a dial
tone before dialing. It is
normal if the handset
takes a second or two
to synchronize with the
telephone base before
producing a dial tone.
Wait an extra second
before dialing.
Eliminate any background
noise. Mute the handset
before dialing, or dial
from another room in
your home with less
background noise.
Make sure the telephone
base is installed properly,
and battery is installed
and charged correctly.
For optimum daily
performance, return the
handset to the telephone
base after use, and
return the pendant to the
pendant charger after
use.
The battery
does not
charge in the
handset or the
handset battery
does not
accept charge.
Disconnect the telephone
line cord from your
telephone and connect
it to another telephone.
If there is no dial tone
on that other telephone
either, then the telephone
line cord may be
defective. Try installing a
new telephone line cord.
If changing the telephone
line cord does not help,
the wall jack (or the wiring
to this wall jack) may
be defective. Contact
your telephone service
provider.
Make sure the handset is
placed in the telephone
base or charger correctly.
If the battery is completely
depleted, charge the
battery for at least
30 minutes before use.
You may need to
purchase a new battery.
The pendant
battery does
not accept
charge while
in the pendant
charger.
Clean the charging
contacts on the pendant
and pendant charger each
month with a pencil eraser
or cloth.
Charge the battery in the
pendant for at least 3
hours. For optimum daily
performance, return the
pendant to the pendant
charger when not in use.
If the battery is completely
depleted, charge the
pendant for at least
30 minutes before use.
You may be using a new

no longer work. Contact
your service provider for
solutions.
45
The telephone
does not ring
when there is
an incoming
call.
Make sure the ringer
volume is not set to off.
I experience
poor sound
quality when
using the
handset
speakerphone.
For increased sound
quality while using the
handset speakerphone,
place the handset on
a flat surface with the
dialing keys facing up.
The handset may be too
far from the telephone
base. Move it closer to the
telephone base.
I hear other
calls when
using the
telephone.
There is
interference
during a
telephone
conversation.
My calls fade
out when
I am using
the cordless
handset.
Disconnect the telephone
base from the telephone
wall jack. Plug in a
different telephone. If you
still hear other calls, the
problem is probably in
the wiring or telephone
service. Contact your
telephone service
provider.
The telephone
does not
receive caller
ID or the
telephone does
not show caller
ID during call
waiting.
The handset may be out
of range. Move it closer to
the telephone base.

service. You must
subscribe to this service
from your telephone
service provider for this
feature to work on your
telephone.
Both your and the
caller’s telephone service
providers must use
equipment compatible
with the caller ID service.
The caller may not be
calling from an area which
supports caller ID.
If you subscribe to
high-speed Internet
service (DSL - digital
subscriber line) through
your telephone line, you
must install a DSL filter
between the telephone
line cord and the
telephone wall jack. The
filter prevents noise and
caller ID problems caused
by DSL interference.
Contact your DSL
service provider for more
information about DSL
filters.
The caller ID information
displays after the first or
second ring.
Appliances or other
cordless telephones
plugged into the
same circuit as the

cause interference. Try
moving the appliance or
telephone base to another
outlet.
The display
shows Out
of range
OR Base no
power.
The handset may be out
of range. Move it closer to
the telephone base.
The outgoing
announcement
is not clear.
When recording the
announcement, make
sure you speak in a
normal tone of voice
towards the microphone
of the handset.
Make sure the power cord
is securely plugged into
the telephone base. Use
a working electrical outlet
not controlled by a wall
switch.
Make sure there is no
background noise when
recording.
The location of your
telephone base can
impact the performance
of your cordless phone.
For better reception,
install the telephone base
in a centralized location
within your home or

vous ne connaissez pas le voltage
de votre maison, consultez votre
marchand ou votre fournisseur
d’électricité.
Ne déposez rien sur le cordon
d’alimentation. Installez cet appareil
dans un endroit sécuritaire, là où
personne ne pourra trébucher sur
la ligne d’alimentation ni le cordon
téléphonique modulaire.
N’insérez jamais d’objets à travers
les fentes et ouvertures de cet
appareil, car ils pourraient toucher
à des points de tension dangereux
ou court-circuiter des pièces, ce qui
constituerait un risque d’incendie ou
d’électrocution. N’échappez pas de
liquides dans l’appareil.
Afin de réduire les risques
d’électrocution, ne démontez pas
l’appareil, mais apportez-le plutôt
à un centre de service qualifié s’il
doit être réparé. En enlevant le
couvercle, vous vous exposez à des
tensions dangereuses ou autres
dangers similaires. Un remontage
inadéquat peut être à l’origine d’une
électrocution lors d’une utilisation
ultérieure de l’appareil. Débranchez
l’appareil avant de procéder au
nettoyage. Utilisez un chiffon humide
et doux.
Ne surchargez pas les prises de
courant et les rallonges.
Débranchez cet appareil de la prise
de courant et communiquez avec le
département de service à la clientèle
de VTech dans les cas suivants :
! Lorsque le cordon d’alimentation
est endommagé ou écorché.
! Si du liquide a été échappé dans
l’appareil.
! Si l’appareil a été exposé à une
source d’humidité telle que la pluie
ou l’eau.
! Si le produit ne fonctionne pas
normalement en respectant les
instructions de fonctionnement.
Réglez uniquement les
commandes indiquées dans le les
instructions de fonctionnement.
Les réglages incorrects des autres
commandes pourraient provoquer
un dommage qui pourrait exiger
un travail exhaustif de la part d’un
technicien autorisé afin de rétablir
le fonctionnement normal de
l’appareil.
! Si le produit a été échappé et que
le socle et/ou le combiné a été
endommagé.
! Si le produit affiche une nette
diminution de sa performance.
13. Évitez d’utiliser un téléphone (autre
qu’un sans fil) pendant un orage. Les
éclairs peuvent être à l’origine d’une
électrocution.
14. N’utilisez pas le téléphone pour
rapporter une fuite de gaz à
proximité de la fuite. En certaines
circonstances, une flammèche
pourrait être provoquée lorsque
l’adaptateur est branché à une prise
de courant, ou lorsque le combiné
est déposé sur le socle. Ceci est
un événement commun associé à
la fermeture d’un circuit électrique.
L’utilisateur ne devrait pas brancher
le téléphone à une prise de courant,
et ne devrait pas déposer le combiné
chargé sur le socle, si le téléphone
se trouve à proximité d’un endroit
comportant des concentrations de
gaz inflammables, à moins que
la ventilation soit adéquate. Une
flammèche dans un tel endroit
pourrait provoquer un incendie ou une
explosion. De tels environnements
peuvent comprendre: des endroits
où l’on utilise de l’oxygène médical
sans ventilation adéquate; des gaz
industriels (dissolvants de nettoyage,
des vapeurs d’essence, etc.); une
fuite de gaz naturel, etc.
15. Ne placez que le combiné de votre
téléphone près de votre oreille
lorsqu’en mode de conversation.
16. Ces adaptateurs ont été conçus pour
être orientés en position verticale
ou montés au sol. Les broches ne
sont pas conçues pour maintenir
l’adaptateur en place si celui-ci est
barnché dans une prise au plafond ou
sous une table/ armoire.
CONSERVEZ CES INSTRUCTIONS
Pile
! MISE EN GARDE : N’utilisez que la
pile incluse.
! Ne jetez pas la pile au feu. Vérifiez les
instructions spécifiques de mise aux
rebus auprès des autorités locales.
! N’ouvrez pas et ne mutilez pas la pile.
L’électrolyte qui s’en échapperait est
corrosif et pourrait causer des brûlures
ou des blessures aux yeux ou à la
peau. L’électrolyte est toxique si avalé.
! Soyez prudents lorsque vous
manipulez les piles afin d’éviter les
courts-circuits provoqués par des
matériaux conducteurs.
! Rechargez la pile incluse avec cet
appareil, selon les instructions et
limites spécifiées dans ce guide

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
53
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 États-Unis, 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.
Remarque : Le transmetteur CareLineMC
est un téléphone sans fil : il ne doit pas
être utilisé comme pendentif (accroché
à une chaîne sur la région du coeur) par
des personnes portant un stimulateur
cardiaque. Les patients qui ont un
stimulateur cardiaque doivent uniquement
porter leur produit CareLineMC à la
ceinture.

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
!
54
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 que
celles des téléphones à cordons.
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.
