happened, the surge protector should have absorbed enough of the surge to protect the connected equipment, but it will not protect against future surges and spikes.

Condition

The GROUNDED WHEN LIT indicator does not light.

Solution

Your surge protector is not grounded. You must move it to a different grounded, threeprong AC outlet.

%#4'

Keep the surge protector dry; if it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Use and store the surge protector only in normal temperature environments. Handle the surge protector carefully; do not drop it. Keep the surge protector away from dust and dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.

If your surge protector is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. Modifying or tampering with the surge protector’s internal components can cause a

malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it.

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

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 surge protector 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 protector.

You must not connect your surge protector to:

LIMITED FIVE-YEARWARRANTY AND CONNECTED EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE

LIMITED WARRANTY — This surge protector product is warranted by RadioShack to the original purchaser against manufacturing defe cts in material and workmanship under normal use for five (5) years from the date of purchase (the “Warranty Period”) from RadioShack company owned stores and authorized RadioShack franchisees and dealers. In the event of a covered product defect during the Warranty Period, RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise provided by law: (a) correct the defect by surge protector repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the surge protector with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price of the surge protector.

CONNECTED EQUIPMENT GUARANTEE — RadioShack warrants to the original purchaser of the surge protector that if any electronic equ ipment (the “Connected Equipment”), which is properly installed and connected (as defined below) to the surge protector and is damaged during the Warranty Period by a transient voltage surge/spike from the AC power line, telephone line or coaxial line that enters the Connected Equipment through the surge protector, RadioShack will reimburse to the original purchaser of the surge protector the lower of the: (a) Connected Equipment repair charges; (b) purchase price of equipment comparable (as determined by RadioShack) to the Connected Equipment; or (c) original purchase price of the Connected Equipment, up to a maximum of fifty thousand U.S. dollars ($50,000.00) (the “Equipment Limit”). The Connected Equipment Guarantee does not cover data loss or any other damages excluded in the all capitalized paragraph below. In order to qualify for Connected Equipment reimbursement, the surge protector must be returned to RadioShack and inspection of the surge protector must show its protection capacity was exhausted by a surge. “Properly installed and connected” means the surge protector must be plugged directly into a properly wired and grounded AC outlet; no extension cords, adapters, other ground wires or electrical connections may be used to connect the surge protector to AC power and no more than one piece of Connected Equipment may be connected to any one surge protector outlet. The wiring in the building must comply with all applicable codes (NEC, CSA, etc.), and all wires (power, telephone and coaxial) leading into the Connected Equipment must pass through the surge protector. To claim damage to Connected Equipment as a result of telephone line transients, the surge protector must provide telephone line protection, and your telephone service equipment must include a properly installed and operating “primary protection” device at the service entrance. Primary protection devices are normally available from the telephone company and added during telephone line installation. To claim damage to Connected Equipment as a result of coaxial line transients, the surge protector must provide coaxial line protection.

This Limited Warranty and Connected Equipment Guarantee applies only to the original purchaser of the surge protector.

EXCEPT AS PROVIDED HEREIN, RADIOSHACK MAKES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THE WRITTEN LIMITED WARRANTIES CONTAINED HEREIN.

Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. To make a claim for surge-induceddamage to Connected Equipment, you must:

1.Call RadioShack at 1-888-353-1560for a return authorization number during the Warranty Period. Under no circumstances will a claim forsurge-induceddamage to Connected Equipment be accepted without a return authorization number;

2.Have any surge-induced,damaged Connected Equipment repaired (or get an estimate for repair) by a service center authorized by the manufacturer of the Connected Equipment unless the service center determines that the Connected Equipment is not repairable or that the cost of repair will be more than the purchase price of comparable replacement equipment. If the Connected Equipment is not to be repaired, get a written quotation for the purchase price of comparable replacement equipment. In no event will RadioShack reimburse more than the Equipment Limit. The repair bill or estimate from the authorized service center must indicate that the damage to the Connected Equipment wassurge-induced;and

3.Ship the original surge protector, postage prepaid to: RadioShack, 7020 Koll Center Pkwy, Suite 136, Pleasanton, California, 94588. Include: (a) your name, address and daytime telephone number; (b) the original or a photocopy of the sales receipt for the surge protector; (c) a brief description of any problem with the surge protector; (d) a brief description of how the damage to the Connected Equipment occurred; (e) the original authorized service center repair bill or estimate documenting that the damage to the Connected Equipment was surge-induced;and (f) if replacement equipment is to be purchased, the original or a photocopy of the quotation for comparable replacement equipment and the authorized service center repair estimate must contain a statement that the Connected Equipment is not repairable or that the cost of repair will be more than the purchase price of comparable replacement equipment.

If RadioShack determines that damage to Connected Equipment is covered, RadioShack will reimburse, up to the Equipment Limit amount defined above, to the original purchaser of the surge protector the lower of the: (a) repair charges; (b) purchase price of comparable replacement equipment; or (c) the original purchase price of the Connected Equipment. In addition, in the event of a covered product defect during the Warranty Period, RadioShack will, at its option, unless otherwise provided by law: (a) correct the defect by surge protector repair without charge for parts and labor; (b) replace the surge protector with one of the same or similar design; or (c) refund the purchase price of the surge protector.

To make a warranty claim for a defect in the surge protector without a claim for surge-induceddamage to Connected Equipment, you must, during the Warranty Period, take the surge protector and the RadioShack sales receipt as proof of purchase date to any RadioShack store.

All replaced parts, products, and Connected Equipment and products and Connected Equipment on which a refund is made, become the property of RadioShack. New or reconditioned parts and products may be used in the performance of warranty service. Repaired or replaced parts in surge protectors and replacement surge protectors are warranted for the remainder of the Warranty Period. You will be charged for repair or replacement of the product made after the expiration of the Warranty Period.
