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

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

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:

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

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.

1.If connected, disconnect the system from the telephone line.

2.Turn over the system so the bottom is facing up.

3.Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the battery compartment’s safety locking screw.
