Warning

1. Use only the approved battery pack supplied. Spare batteries – Item Code: 871285 are available from BT Shops and the Synergy Helpline

0845 650 20 20.

2.Do not try to use any power supply except the one provided, otherwise you may permanently damage your Synergy 900. It may also invalidate approval of this apparatus. To get a replacement Synergy charger power supply unit (Item Code: 871273) and Synergy base station power supply unit (Item Code: 871340) contact BT Shops or the Synergy Helpline 0845 650 20 20.

3.There is a slight chance that your phone could be damaged by an electrical storm. We recommend that you unplug your Synergy 900 from the mains power and telephone line socket during storms.

4.If you wear a hearing aid, please note that the Synergy 900 works by sending radio signals between the base station and handset. These signals can interfere with hearing aids, causing a humming noise.

5.Synergy 900 can interfere with other electrical equipment, e.g. answering machines, TV and radio sets, clock radio/alarms and computers if placed too close. It is recommended that you place your Synergy 900 at least one metre away from such appliances to avoid any risk of interference.

The Synergy 900 system has a range of up to 300 metres outdoors and up to 50 metres indoors. It is possible that the range may be affected by being near water (e.g. large ponds, lakes, the sea) and large metal objects (e.g. radiators, steel girders and metal partition walls).

6.The Synergy 900 will produce a certain amount of heat during operation. Equally, the handset as well as any additional chargers you purchase can also become warm during charging.

7.We advise against placing these products on antique, veneered or wooden surfaces as damage may occur.

8.Do not use the Synergy 900 in damp, humid conditions such as bathrooms. Do not expose the equipment or batteries to fire or water.

9.Do not dispose of used batteries with general household rubbish and do not burn them.

10.Do not use the handsets in places where there are explosive hazards.

11.Make sure you connect the power and telephone lines to the correct sockets in the base station.

12.Clean the handset and base station with a damp (not wet) cloth or antistatic wipe.

Never use a dry cloth as this may cause a static shock. Never spray cleaning fluid directly onto the telephone.

Setting follow these steps to get your Synergy 900 ready for use.

1. To plan the location of the base station

Your Synergy 900 works by sending and receiving radio signals between the base station and the handset.

The strength of the signal depends on where you site the base station. The higher the base station is located, the better. An upstairs room is ideal. The following points should be considered:

It should be within 2 metres of a power socket and phone socket otherwise extension cables will be required

Try to avoid locations near metallic obstructions or electrical appliances, such as TV sets, fridges, computers, fluorescent lights, radiators, metal pipes and metal window frames.

2. Connect the power cable

Plug the power cable into the power socket on the underside of your Synergy 900. When the power is switched on, the base station POWER light comes on.

3. Install the rechargeable battery in the handset

Hold the handset with the keypad facing down, remove the clear plastic directory label cover and press and slide open the battery compartment.

Push

BATTERY

Slide

Insert the battery pack inside the battery compartment and slide the battery compartment cover shut. Replace the directory label cover.

WARNING

It is recommended that the line cord is not connected until the handset is fully charged. This will prevent the risk of the phone being answered prior to the battery being fully charged and therefore not working to its optimum capacity.

6

4. Charge the handset battery for at least 16 hours

Before you use your Synergy 900 for the first time it is important to have the handset battery fully charged. We recommend that you leave the Synergy 900 Handset on charge for at least 16 hours. Place the handset on the base station. The CHARGING light comes on. Your handset should comepre-registeredto the base station asHSET1. If the display showsREG, you will need to register the handset manually by following the simple steps on page 24, “To register a handset”.

To keep your battery in the best condition, leave the handset off the base station for a few hours at a time. (after the initial 16 hour charge)

Battery performance

After charging your Synergy 900 for the first time, subsequent charging time for the handset batteries is approximately 4-5hours. Batteries and case may become warm during charging.

This is normal and not dangerous.

Under ideal conditions, the handset battery should give about 6 hours talktime or 60 hours standby on a single charge. Please note, however, that the new NiCad battery, does not reach its full capacity until it has been in normal use for several days.

Please note that while NiCad rechargeable batteries can be expected to give years of service they do not last forever. Their actual lifespan depends on how heavily they are used but over time, their capacity to recharge will begin to diminish and they will eventually need replacing.

Battery low warning

Your handset display will show the status of your battery:

When the charge is low, the battery icon

is displayed.

When the charge is almost out, you will also hear a warning beep every 10 seconds (during a call) in the earpiece. This indicates that the handset is about to switch off.

5. Connect the telephone line cord to the Synergy 900 base station

Plug the line cord into the line socket on the underside of your Synergy 900.
