Setting Up the System

Follow these steps to set up your new answering system for proper operation.

1.Install the battery: Remove the battery cover on the left side of the unit by pressing in on the cover and sliding it down. Insert the battery, then replace the cover.

2.Connect the line cord: Plug one end of the line cord into the TEL LINE jack at the rear of the unit, and plug other end into a modular wall jack for your telephone line.

3.Connect your telephone: (If you do not wish to connect a telephone to the system, go to step 4) Plug your telephone set cord into the TEL SET jack located at the rear of the answering system.

4.Connect the power cord: Plug theright-angleplug on the power cord into the answering system jack marked POWER. Plug the power transformer into an electrical outlet that is not controlled by a wall switch.

You should use only the power cord supplied with your answering system. If you need a replacement cord, call the National Sales and Service Center at 1-800-222-3111.

Formatting Digital Memory

When you connect the unit to an electrical outlet, the system automatically begins formatting digital memory. This takes about 4 minutes.

While the system is formatting memory, the Message Indicator Light flashes rapidly on and off. The Message Window begins to count down from 64 to 0. You cannot use any system features while the formatting routine is in progress, but you may wish to look through the rest of this manual and review instructions for other features.

When the formatting of the unit’s memory is completed, the Message Indicator Light stops flashing (but remains on) and the Message Window shows 0. The 0 blinks on and off slowly to indicate that you need to record an announcement.

NOTE: If you did not install a battery, or if the battery is low on power or installed incorrectly, the system alternates between the usual display and the message Lo. You should install a battery so that there is backup power to save messages in the event of a power failure.

System Reset

If the system does not record messages when memory is available, or otherwise malfunctions, press RESET. (The RESET button is on the right side of the unit and is recessed to prevent your pressing it accidentally.)

CAUTION: When you press RESET, the system begins thefour-minuteformatting routine described on this page. The announcement and any messages stored in memory are deleted. The Remote Access code also returns to the factory setting of 10.
