Installation

Table/Desk Installation

1.Choose a spot near an electrical outlet and a telephone jack.

Your phone requires a modular telephone jack and a standard electrical outlet (110v AC). The outlet should not be controlled by a wall switch – if the switch is ever turned off, the phone will not operate properly.

2.Install the base batteries.

Open the battery door on the bottom of the unit by pulling on the tab. Insert the batteries, making sure that they are in correctly, then close the door.

The batteries are used to save your messages in the event of a power failure.

When the base batteries need to be replaced, the LO BATT BASE Light on the base will blink.

3.Set DIAL MODE switch.

Set the DIAL MODE switch on rear of the base unit to TONE if you have touch tone service, or PULSE if you have dial pulse (rotary) service. To change dial mode during a call, see Temporary Tone.

4.Connect the telephone line cord.

The telephone line cord has a snap-inplug on each end. Insert one of the plugs into the jack in the rear of the base unit. Insert the other plug into a telephone jack. Make sure the plugs snap into place.

5.Set the HANDSET RINGER switch (ON, OFF).

Set the HANDSET RINGER switch on the base unit to ON so the phone will ring. When the switch is set to OFF, the phone will not ring.

6.Fill in the telephone number card.

On the handset, insert a pointed object into the hole in the window, and gently pry up the window until it pops out. Write your phone number on the card and replace the window.

7.Install the flexible handset antenna.

The flexible handset antenna has a metal end with a threaded tip. Slide the metal tip straight down into the hole in the top of the handset. When you feel the antenna reach the bottom of the hole, turn the antenna clockwise slightly to make sure that the tip is set in place, and then continue to screw the antenna clockwise until the rubber is snug against the top of the handset. Do not overtighten the antenna.

8.Plug in the power cord.

Plug the AC adapter on the power cord into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch. When you connect the unit to an electrical outlet, the system automatically begins formatting digital memory. The Message Window begins to count down from 8 to 0. When memory formatting has been completed, “0” will blink in the Message Window to indicate that the system is on, but an announcement has not been recorded.

9.Charge the handset batteries for 10 hours.

Place the handset in the base and let the batteries charge for 10 hours. You can use your phone before the 10 hours are up, but be sure to return the handset to the base so it can charge fully. The CHARGING Light on the base unit will light to show the batteries are charging.

10.Check for dial tone.

After the batteries are charged, pick up the handset and extend both the handset and the base antennas. Now press PHONE on the handset. The PHONE Light should light, and you should hear a dial tone.

11.Set Answering System Features.

To fully utilize this system you need to:

a)Set the clock.

b)Record an announcement.

c)Set system to answer calls.

d)Set RING SELECT Switch.

8.Remove and reverse the handset hook.

You must now reverse the handset hook so it can hold the handset in the base. In the opening behind the telephone number card you will see a dot marked PRESS. With a pencil or pen point, press on the dot and push upward to release the hook from its slot.

Now remove the hook and turn it so the rounded edge is pointing up, and the word PRESS is facing you. Slide the hook back down into the slot until it snaps into place. The rounded edge should now be sticking out.

9.Choose and mark the mounting position.

The mounting screws should screw into a wooden stud within the wall – they will not hold securely in wallboard alone. Locate a wall stud in the area where you want to install your telephone. Use the Wall-MountingTemplate and a pencil to mark the screw positions on the wall over the stud. Put the template aside.

10.Install the mounting sleeves and screws.

Start the screw holes by lightly tapping a nail into the marks you made on the wall. Remove the nail from the wall. Now slip the mounting sleeves onto the screws as shown, with the larger end of the
