FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your System 200 to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each Caller ID system (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the system’s ringer equivalence number or REN. The REN is on the label on the bottom of the system.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

8

43-985.fmPage 9 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) registration number and the REN to your telephone company. These numbers are on the label on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your System 200 to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your System 200 causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the phone company attempts to notify

9

43-985.fmPage 10 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the phone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this system. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This system complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 of FCC Rules. These limits provide reasonable protection against radio and TV interference in a residential area. However, your System 200 might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating

10

43-985.fmPage 11 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving radio or TV antenna

Increase the distance between the System 200 and the radio or TV

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the System 200 and the radio or TV

Contact your local telephone company or RadioShack store if the problem continues.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES/ SETUP

You need four AAA batteries (not supplied) to power the system. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-558.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

13

43-985.fmPage 14 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

Follow these steps to install batteries and program the system.

Note: When replacing the batteries, if you do not install the new ones within 1 minute, the system’s date and time will be lost (the Caller ID information, however, stays stored in the system’s memory).

1.If you are replacing the batteries, unplug both modular line cords from the back of the system.

2.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the battery compartment screw on the bottom of the system, then slide the cover off in the direction of the arrow on the cover’s door.

4.Turn the system over so you can see the display. After you install batteries, the system displays HA640 REV 2.0 (information about the system’s software), thenSET LANGUAGE, thenENGLISH (the default display language) for about 45 seconds.

5.To select another language, repeatedly press REVIEW . The display cycles through

FRENCH, SPANISH, and ENGLISH.

Note: If you do not press any key within 45 seconds after pressingREVIEW , the system automatically selects English.

6.Press REVIEW to store the selected language.000 andSET AREA CODE appear. The first0 flashes.

16

43-985.fmPage 17 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

7.Within 45 seconds, repeatedly press REVIEW until the first digit of your area code appears, then pressREVIEW to enter the digit. The second0 flashes.

8.Repeat Step 7 to set the second and third digits of your area code.

Notes:

If you make a mistake while setting the area code, press DELETE. The cursor moves to the first digit of the area code. Then repeat Steps 7 and 8 to reset the area code.

If you do not press any key within 45 seconds in Steps 7 or 8, the area code is au-

17

43-985.fmPage 18 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

tomatically set by signals sent from the phone company with the first incoming call.

When you enter the area code’s last digit, the system displays 12:00AM 1/01.

Note: The telephone company sends the correct time with each incoming call, so the correct date and time are automatically set when the system receives its first call.

9.Replace the battery cover and the screw. If you are replacing the batteries, reconnect the phone line and the phone.

To reset the language, remove the batteries and reinstall them.

18

43-985.fmPage 19 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

When flashes in the upper right corner of the display or the display dims, replace the batteries.

Cautions:

Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can damage your system.

Dispose of dead batteries promptly and properly; do not bury or burn them.

ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY CONTRAST

Note: You can adjust the display contrast only when the current time and date are showing.

19

43-985.fmPage 20 Monday, August 16, 1999 5:08 PM

To decrease the display contrast, hold down DELETE/READ while repeatedly pressingREVIEW .
