Getting started

Location

You need to place your BT Studio 2300 within 2 metres of a mains power and telephone socket so that the cables will reach.

Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other electrical appliances to avoid interference.

Your BT Studio 2300 works by sending radio signals between the handset and base. The strength of the signal depends on where you site the base. Putting it as high as possible ensures the best signal.

Setting up

1.Plug the power adaptor and telephone cable into the back of the base.

2.Plug the power adaptor into the mains wall socket and switch the power on. When connected correctly, the green Power light on the base comes on.

WARNING

Do not place your BT Studio 2300 in the bathroom or other humid areas.

Handset range

The BT Studio 2300 has a range of 300 metres outdoors when there is a clear line of sight between the base and handset. When there is no clear line of sight between the base and handset, e.g. base indoors and handset either indoors or outdoors, the range could be reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone walls severely affect the range.

Signal strength

The symbol on your handset screen indicates when you are in range. When you are out of range, it flashes.

IMPORTANT

Do not connect the telephone line until at least one of the handsets is fully charged.

The base must be plugged into the mains power at all times.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047

8 Getting started

The red Charging light stays on while the handset is on the base, even when the batteries are fully charged.

Talk/Standby time

Under ideal conditions, fully charged handset batteries should give up to 8 hours talktime or 80 hours standby on a single charge.

Battery low warning

The handset battery symbol is empty and you will hear a warning beep. Start recharging your handset right away.

When charging the battery, level bars are animated.

Replacing batteries

Use only rechargeable 750mAh or higher AAA NiMH batteries.

Battery performance

When batteries are fully charged the display shows 3 green bars.

To keep your batteries in the best conditions, leave the handset off the base for a few hours at a time (after the initial 24 hour charge).

Please note however, that new NiMH batteries do not reach full capacity until they have been in normal use for several days.

3.Install the 2 x AAA rechargeable batteries supplied. Then slide the battery compartment cover into place.

4.Charge the handset for at least 24 hours by placing it on the base. The red Charging light comes on. The handset is pre-registeredto the base as Handset 1. The screen shows the standby display.

5.After 24 hours, plug the telephone line cord into the wall socket and your BT Studio 2300 base.

If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0870 605 8047
