This system has been tested and found to comply with all applicable UL and FCC standards.

We recommend you record the system’s serial number here. The number is on the label on the bottom of the system.

Serial Number _____________________

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Your caller ID system conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the label on the bottom of the system.

If you are using more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three 5

43-968.fmPage 6 Monday, August 16, 1999 3:56 PM

might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC Registration Number and the REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the label on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect the system to:

PREPARATION

INSTALLING THE BATTERIES AND SELECTING THE DISPLAY LANGUAGE

Your Caller ID System 60 is powered by four AAA batteries (not supplied). For the longest operation, we recommend alkaline batteries (such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-558).

Notes:

When BATTERIES LOW appears on the display, replace the batteries.

Always remove old or weak batteries. They can leak chemicals which can damage electronic circuits.

When you replace the batteries, the system loses all call information, but the time is automatically set when the system receives its first phone call.

8

CONNECTING TO THE PHONE LINE

The Caller ID System 60 connects to a modular wall jack and your telephone. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular wall jack, you can update the wiring yourself. RadioShack stores sell jacks and adapters necessary to convert older wiring methods to modular wiring. Or, you can have the telephone company update your telephone wiring for you.

12

43-968.fmPage 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 3:56 PM

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C.

Follow these steps to connect the system to the telephone line.

1.Unplug the existing telephone line cord from the telephone and plug it into the LINE jack on your Caller ID System 60.

2.Plug one end of the supplied telephone line cord into the System 60’s PHONE jack.

OPERATION

RECEIVING INCOMING CALLS

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When Caller ID is activated, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available) and the call’s date and time between the first and second rings. The Caller ID System 60 receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. The display also indicates if caller information is not available or if the number is blocked by the sender (see “Display Messages” on Page 18).

If the system has received a call since the last time call records were reviewed, the NEW CALL indicator flashes and the call information appears.

15

43-968.fmPage 16 Monday, August 16, 1999 3:56 PM

Notes:

If you connect a telephone answering machine to the same line as the Caller ID System 60, you must set the answering machine to answer in two or more rings in order to receive the Caller ID information.

When the system’s memory is full, it automatically deletes the oldest call record as a new call comes in.

16

43-968.fmPage 17 Monday, August 16, 1999 3:56 PM
