INSTRUCTIONS

INTRODUCTION

Thank you for purchasing a RadioShack 2.4 GHz Cordless Telephone. Your telephone provides excellent clarity and range and a digital answering system into one space-savingdevice. The 2.4 GHz band provides superior audio quality and extended range.

The digital answering system provides clear reliable messaging with call screening, day/time stamp, call counter, remote access and instant skip or replay messaging. !

READTHISBEFOREINSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your phone.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your phones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

! IMPORTANT!

Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your phone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection.

Introduction

5

Introduction

The digital answering system stores up to 13 minutes of messages on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

You can delete individual messages and save the rest.

There are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your answering system from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer).

6

INSTALLATION

MOUNTING THEPHONE

You can place the phone on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a modular telephone line jack

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

away from other cordless phones

You can try different locations to see which provides the best performance.

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself using jacks and adapters (available at your local RadioShack store or online at RadioShack.com), or have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules. The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (RJ11W for a wall plate).

On a Desk Top

DC IN 9V TEL LINE

1. Plug one end of the

 

supplied long

 

modular cord into the

 

TEL LINE jack on the

 

base’s back.

 

2. Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular telephone line jack.

CAUTION

You must use a

!Class 2 power source that

supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 350 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the phone's DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the phone or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the phone before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.

Installation

7

Installation

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack on the back.

4.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the base’s bottom.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

6.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

To mount the phone directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the base. Drill two holes 315/16 inches apart. Thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about1/8 inch.

1. Insert the two tabs at the top of the narrow end of the supplied bracket into the base’s upper tab slots, then press down on the bracket’s latches and insert them into the lower slots.

2. Plug one end of the supplied modular cord (short for a wall plate, long for direct wall mounting) into the TEL LINE jack on the base’s back.

3. Insert the

DC IN 9V

TEL LINE

supplied AC

 

 

adapter’s barrel

 

 

plug into the DC

 

 

IN 9V jack.

 

 

4. Route the adapter and modular cords through the base’s grooves.

8

5.For a wall plate, plug the modular cord’s other end into the wall plate jack, then align the base’s keyhole slots with the wall plate studs and slide the base downward to secure it.

For direct wall mounting, align the base’s keyhole slots with the mounting screws and slide the base downward to secure it.

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

7.Press and lift out the handset

holder, flip it over as shown, then snap it back into place so it holds the handset.

8.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

CONNECTING, CHARGING ANDREPLACING THEBATTERYPACK

The phone comes with a rechargeable Ni-Cd(nickel-cadmium)battery pack installed in the handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about 24 hours.

1.Press down and slide off the battery pack compartment cover.

2.Lift the battery pack out of the compartment.

Installation

Installation

! IMPORTANT!

Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The

CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights when the handset is on the base even if the battery pack is not connected properly.

ÔNOTE Ô

If the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low for the display to operate.)

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps and TALK/BATT LOW

LED flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base to change the security access-protectioncode. If it was the handset that lost power, recharge the battery pack.

3. Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment. The connector fits only one way.

4. Put the battery pack in the compartment.

5. Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base, face up or down. The base’s CHARGE/IN USE indicator lights.!

Recharge the battery pack when TALK/BATT LOW LED flashes.Ô

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear error beeps. If this happens, while holding find hs, place the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to change the securityaccess-protectioncode.

Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and the base about once a month.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until TALK/BATT LOW LED flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

10

The supplied battery pack should last about a year. If the battery pack does not hold a charge for more than 2 hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6V, 600 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment. You can order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store (or online at RadioShack.com). Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 24 hours. o

If you have trouble replacing the battery pack, take the phone to your local RadioShack for assistance.

Recycling Ni-CdBatteries.

The EPA certified RBRC® Battery Recycling Seal on thenickel-cadmium(Ni-Cd)battery indicates RadioShack is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle these

batteries at the end of their useful life, when taken out of service in the United States or Canada. The RBRC program provides a convenient alternative to placing used Ni-Cdbatteries into the trash or the municipal waste stream, which may be illegal in your area. Please call1-800-THE-SHACK(1-800-843-7422)for information onNi-Cdbattery recycling and disposal bans/restrictions in your area. RadioShack’s involvement in this program is part of the company’s commitment to preserving our environment and conserving our natural resources.

CHOOSING THEDIALINGMODEÔ

Most phone systems use tone dialing which sends standard tones through the phone lines. However, some phone systems still use pulse dialing such as in rural areas. The default setting is tone dialing.

Depending on your dialing system, set the mode as follows:

oWARNINGo

Dispose of the old battery pack promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury it (see “Battery Safety Instructions” on Page 4 for additional information on proper battery handling).

Installation

ÔNOTE Ô

If you are not sure of your dialing system, make a trial call. If the call connects, leave the setting as is, otherwise set for pulse dialing.
