1Connect the power supply and switch on.
You must thread the power supply cable into the socket on the underside of your base. The power cable connector and socket are coloured red.
Please take care that the power supply and telephone line cord are connected to the correct sockets as incorrect placement could damage your equipment.
Once connected, put the plinth back on the base to prevent it from rocking on the table.
There are two positions for the plinth when joining it to the base, both can be used for desk mounting and one for wall mounting. Position A is for desk mounting only and positionB is for desk or wall mounting (see Wall mounting on page 25).
Hold the black plastic square between thumb and forefinger and peel off individual feet from backing sheet as shown. These are to stop your base from moving and to protect your work surface.
If you decide on position B, place 2 of the rubber feet on the plinth and 2 on the base.
Plug the power adaptor into the wall socket and switch on. When the power is switched on, the button on your base will light up.
Do not connect the telephone line cord to the phone socket until your handset is fully charged. This will prevent the risk of the phone being answered before the battery is charged. Answering the phone before the battery is fully charged may prevent it from reaching its optimum capacity.
2Charge the battery in the handset for at least 16 hours
When the battery has been charged for at least 16 hours the display will show thesymbol; you can then connect the telephone line cord to the base.
Battery low warning
If the handset battery symbol is empty and you hear warning beeps, you will need to recharge your handset before you can use it.
Under no circumstances should
Under ideal conditions the battery should give about 10 hours talk time and 120 hours standby when the batteries have been fully charged.
Fully discharging the batteries at least
once a week will help them to last as long as possible. However, the charge capacity of rechargeable batteries will reduce with time as they wear out, so reducing the talk/standby time of the handset. Eventually they will need to be replaced. New batteries can be obtained from the Helpline on 0870 240 4682.
Your handset is supplied with NiMH batteries. These need to be initially charged continuously for 16 hours to reach full charge.
