FCC INFORMATION

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

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

43-931A.fmPage 7 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

In the unlikely event that your system causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the phone company attempts to notify 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 telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This equipment 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 equipment might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures:

Reorient or relocate the TV or radio’s receiving antenna.

7

43-931A.fmPage 8 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

Increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV.

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the equipment and the radio or TV.

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your System 931 requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) for power. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, available at your local RadioShack store.

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.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

Notes:

When you replace the batteries, do not press any button on the system after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

10

43-931A.fmPage 11 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the system.

1.Make sure the system is unplugged from the telephone line. If you are replacing the batteries, unplug both modular line cords from the back of the system.

2.Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screw on the battery compartment cover.

3.Slide the battery compartment cover off, then remove it.

4.Put four fresh AAA batteries into the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and –)marked inside.

5.Close the cover and secure it with the screw. If you are replacing the batteries, reconnect the phone line and the phone.

When BATT appears or the display dims, replace the batteries.

11

43-931A.fmPage 12 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

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.

CONNECTING THE SYSTEM

Your system 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 have the telephone company update the wiring for you. You must use compatible modular jacks that are compliant with Part 68 of FCC Rules.

Note: The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

You can also connect it to an answering machine.

12

43-931A.fmPage 13 Monday, January 15, 2001 9:14 AM

Cautions:

Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals, unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface.

Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
