• Make sure the power cord is plugged in.
• Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged firmly into the telephone base and the telephone
wall jack.
• Disconnect the AC adapter for a few minutes, and then reconnect it.
• Charge the battery in the handset for 16 hours. For optimum daily performance, return the

Try all the suggestions above.
Move the handset closer to the telephone base. You might have moved out of range.
Your line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new line cord.
If the previous suggestions don’t work, disconnect the telephone base from the telephone jack

I cannot dial out.
• Make sure you have a dial tone before dialing. The handset may take a second or two to find
the telephone and produce a dial tone. This is normal. Wait an extra second before dialing.
• Make sure your phone is set to the correct dial mode for the type of service that you have (pulse
or touch tone). Refer to the Telephone settings section of this user’s manual to set the dial
mode.
•If the other telephones in your home are having the issue, the problem is in your wiring or local
service. Contact your local telephone company.
• Eliminate any background noise. Noise from a television, radio or other appliance may cause the
telephone not to dial out properly. If you cannot eliminate the background noise, first try muting
the handset before dialing, or dialing from another room in your home with less background
noise.

• Other cordless telephones and 802.11 wireless routers that are used for home computer
networks both use internal radios to communicate. The radios may interfere with one another.
You can improve the performance of your cordless phones and your router by:
a.positioning your new telephone as far away as possible from any other existing cordless
telephone system that is already installed in your home to avoid the two systems interfering
with each other.
b.positioning your telephone base as far as possible from your router, computer or any other
computer devices.
c.selecting channels 4 through 10 for your router (refer to your router’s user manual for more
information).
• Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless telephone. Try installing it
as far away from these types of electronic devices as possible: wireless routers, radios, radio
towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers,

• Microwaves operate on the same frequency as your telephone. It is normal to experience static
on your telephone while the microwave oven is operation. Do not install this telephone in the
same outlet as near the microwave oven.
•If your telephone is plugged in with a modem or surge protector, plug the phone (or modem/
surge protector) into a different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your telephone
or modem farther apart from one another, or use a different surge protector.
• Relocate your telephone to a higher location. The telephone will likely get better reception
when installed in a high area.
• If the other telephones in your home are having the problem, contact your local telephone
company (charges may apply.)
