Your RadioShack Jumbo Caller ID is the latest in telephone technology. The system displays the current date, time, and caller information as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers.

The system stores and displays up to 50 multiple (name and number) Caller ID records and includes these features:

Jumbo Display with Photo Sensor — makes it easy to see caller information and the current date and time. The system’s photo sensor automatically adjusts the display brightness according to the ambient light.

Total Call Count — lets you know how many calls are stored in memory.

Line Status Indicator — alerts you when you have an incoming call and the status of a parallel phone in use.

Mounting Options — you can place the system on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall.

FCC STATEMENT

We have designed your caller ID system to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device (such as a telephone, caller ID, 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 your caller ID.

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

In the unlikely event that your system causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporally 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 change 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.

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.

Warning: Changes or modifications to this unit not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

USING AC POWER

To power the system, plug the supplied adapter’s barrel plug into the 9V DC jack on the back of the system. Connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet.

After you power up the system, all indicators light for about 3 seconds, then the caller ID returns to standby.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source that supplies

!9V DC and delivers at least 300 mA. Its center tip

must be set to positive and its plug must fit the caller ID’s 9V DC jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the caller ID or the adapter.

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

MAKING THE CONNECTIONS

The system connects to any modular phone jack and your phone. You can also connect it to an answering machine.

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

1.Disconnect the phone line cord from the phone and plug it into the system’s LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the system’s PHONEjack.

3.Plug the other end of the cord into the phone’s jack.

Connecting to a Two-LinePhone

To record information about calls received on a two-linephone, you can connect two caller IDs using a triplex adapter (not supplied). Each system only records information about calls received on the line to which it is connected.

Follow these steps to connect two caller IDs to a two-linephone.

L1 + L2

L1

L2

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the modular phone jack (on the wall) and plug it into L1 + L2 on the triplex adapter.

2.Plug the triplex adapter into the modular phone jack.

3.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the LINE jack on one of the systems.

4.Plug the other end of the cord into either L1 orL2 on the triplex adapter.

5.Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to connect another system to the remaining open jack (L1 orL2) on the triplex adapter.

Connecting to an Answering Machine

LINE Jack

PHONE Jack

Answering Machine’s

Jack

1.Disconnect the phone line cord that connects your answering machine to the phone line from the answering machine’s jack. Then plug the cord into the system’s LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the system’s PHONEjack.

3.Plug the cord’s other end into the answering machine’s jack.

4.Set your answering machine to answer after two or more rings. This gives the caller ID time to record the call information that the phone company sends between the first and second rings.

MOUNTING THE SYSTEM

You can place the system directly on a desk, shelf, or table by itself (or with the supplied mounting bracket), or you can use the bracket to mount the system on a wall.

Attaching the Mounting Bracket

Keyhole Slots

Hooks

1.Align the keyhole slots on the bottom of the system with the hooks on the mounting bracket.

2.Gently push the system down on the bracket to secure it.

If you are placing the system on a desk, shelf, or table, pull out the stand on the back of the bracket.

To remove the bracket, position it so the display faces down and the line connections face you. Then gently press down on the bracket to remove it.

On a Wall

To mount the system on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads larger than the keyhole slots on the back of the mounting bracket.

Follow these steps to mount the system on a wall.

1.Using the keyholes in the supplied mounting bracket as a template, mark the mounting screw locations on the wall.

2.Drill a pilot hole in the wall at each marked location.

CARE

To enjoy your RadioShack Jumbo Caller ID for a long time:

Keep the caller ID dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately.

Use and store the caller ID only in normal temperature environments.

Handle the caller ID gently and carefully. Do not drop it.

Keep the caller ID away from dust and dirt.

Wipe the caller ID with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

Modifying or tampering with the caller ID’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty. If your caller

ID is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your caller ID until you have resolved the problem.

LIGHTNING

Your telephone has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in phone line or power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line can damage your telephone.

Lightning damage is not common. However, if you live in and area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your system during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
