Important Safety Instructions
Read and understand the Installation Guide & User Manual. When using your telephone
equipment, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock and injury to person, including the following.
WARNING: The 40XLC Phone is capable of amplifying sounds to a loud volume. It is
important to instruct all potential users of its proper operation. It is advised to adjust the
volume control to the minimum level (Low) when not in use and alert other users that
hearing damage can potentially result from misuse.
WARNING: To avoid the possibility of electrical shock, do not use this product near water
(For example, near a bathtub, wash basin, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet basement
or near a swimming pool) while in the bathtub or shower or when you are wet. If the phone
becomes submerged in water, do not attempt to retrieve it until after you have unplugged
the line cord from the modular wall jack. Do not plug the phone back in until it has dried
completely.
WARNING: Avoid using the telephone during electrical storms. There may be a remote
risk of electric shock from lightning. If the electrical storm is present in your immediate
area, possibility of electrical shock exists.
WARNING: Do not use the phone if you suspect a gas leak in the area. The phone’s
electrical contacts could create a spark, which could ignite any heavy concentration of
leaking gas.
WARNING: Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners on the telephone. Use a damp
cloth for cleaning.
WARNING: No telephone should ever be placed near an open radiator or heating register.
WARNING: Occasionally a power surge can occur on electrical lines without warning. With
any electrical device that you plug into an outlet, it is suggested you use a surge protector.
A surge protector will prevent power surges from damaging your telephone. Surge protectors are simple devices available at your local hardware store.

Using the Amplification Function
The 40XLC Phone has an “AMPLI” button that controls the loudness and tone of the
handset. Without pressing the “AMPLI” button, you are able to amplify the handset up to
30 dB of amplification. Once the “AMPLI” button is pressed, an extra level of amplification
is added providing 30 to 50 dB of gain and tone control.
Voice Amplification and Tone
Your 40XLC Phone is equipped with a specialized amplification function designed to fit
your needs. You can adjust the volume and tone (sound frequency range) of the incoming
voice by simply adjusting Volume and Tone Controls. To use the specialized amplification
boost and tone control features, follow these directions.
1. Once you have dialed the phone or answered a call, press the “AMPLI” (amplify)
button (See figure #24). This turns the incoming voice amplifier ON. When the amplifier is ON, you will see the red light on the left side of the “AMPLI” button light up.
i.e. “AMPLI”
19
2. Adjust the volume and tone to fit your needs by adjusting the VOLUME (See figure
#25) and TONE (See figure #26) controls until you find the right levels for you. The
Volume Control increases sound volume. Slide the Volume Control to the right
to increase the volume and slide it to the left to decrease the volume. The Tone
Control allows you to fit your specific hearing needs. Slide the Tone Control to the
left to boost the lower frequency range. Slide the Tone Control to right to boost the
high frequency range. This allows individuals with BOTH high frequency and low
frequency hearing loss to use the 40XLC Phone.
Figure #24 – Amplify Button
Figure #25 –Volume Control
Figure #26 – Tone Control
3. For additional, situational amplification, press and hold the HANDSET BOOST button located just below the earpiece on the inside of the handset (See figure #26). By
pressing and holding this additional handset boost button, you get an extra 10 dB
gain of amplification.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Handset Boost button is designed to be used when listening
only. When you are ready to speak, release the button. Press it again when the extra
amplification is necessary. Failure to release the button when speaking will result in the
other party not hearing you. Use this additional handset boost button (See figure #27) for
the following reasons:
a.
b.
c.
d.
The caller has a very soft speech
There is a lot of background noise
You are in a noisy environment
The connection on the phone line is weak
Figure #27– Handset Boost Button
CAUTION: This telephone can produce very high (loud) sound levels. Repeated incremental exposure to amplification levels greater than 18 dB may be harmful to people
without hearing loss. Always adjust the volume control to the minimum setting after using
20
the phone and alert other users that hearing damage can potentially result from misuse.
Using the volume reset override
In standard mode, the phone will reset to normal sound levels when you hang up. This
allows people who do not require the level of amplification offered on the phone to use it.
If you would like to override the reset, simply turn the AUTO AMPLIFY switch on the back
of the phone to “ON” using the tip of a pencil or paper clip (See figure #28).
IMPORTANT: When the AUTO AMPLIFY switch is in the “ON” position, you do not need
to press the “AMPLI” (amplify) button. Your amplification setting will remain as set.
On any call, you can temporarily turn OFF and turn back ON the AUTO AMPLIFY feature
by pressing the “AMPLI” button.
Figure #28 – Volume Reset Override Switch
Using your 40XLC Amplified Phone with hearing aids
Your 40XLC Phone can be used with hearing aids equipped with a telecoil (T-coil). Adjust
your hearing aid “T-switch” to the “T” position. Make sure to hold the handset close to your
hearing aid.
Using the Outgoing Speech Volume
You can adjust the sending volume (outgoing volume up to 12 dB of gain) by using the
Speech Volume Control located on the right side of your 40XLC Phone. If your voice is
faint or weak, adjust the volume to “HI”. You can also decrease the volume as well. There
are three levels available “LO, NORMAL & HI” (See figure #29).
Figure #29 - Outgoing Speech Volume Switch
21
Tip: If you are using the boost feature along with the handset boost, we suggest you set
the SPCH VOL switch to HI. Any time you utilize the maximum amplification for listening,
it is normal for your outgoing speech volume to decrease. Therefore, it may be necessary
to turn the Speech Volume to HI.
Using The Last Number Redial
The REDIAL button is used to quickly redial the last number you dialed.
1. Lift the handset, listen for the dial tone
2. Press REDIAL button. The phone will redial up to 31 digits automatically.
NOTE: If you would like to dial from one of the last 30 numbers dialed (See page #31 for
instructions).
Using The Flash Button
The FLASH button is used to disconnect a call and re-establish dial tone or to switch over
to another caller if you use custom calling services such as Call Waiting or Three Way
Calling. Please contact your local telephone company for information on these services.
1. During a call press the FLASH button to access flash feature.
Using The Mute Button
The MUTE button allows the user to conduct a private conversation that you do not want
the person on the other end to hear.
1. Press and hold the MUTE button. You will still be able to hear the caller but they
cannot hear you during the mute operation.
2. To resume normal conversation, release the MUTE button.
40XLC CALLER ID OPERATION
NOTE: In order to utilize the Caller ID features, you must subscribe to Caller ID service
through your local phone company. There are fees for Caller ID services, and it may not be
available in all areas. This product can provide information only if both you and the caller
are in areas offering Caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible
equipment.
