ˆ Features

Your RadioShack 2-Line900MHz Cordless Answering Machine uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you extended range and superior audio quality, with less interference than many other cordless phones. The phone lets you make and receive calls on two separate telephone lines.

The answering system stores up to 25 minutes or up to 59 messages on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

you can delete individual messages and save the rest.

there are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your TAD from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with a pocket tone dialer).

Its features include:

TELEPHONE FEATURES

Two-LineTelephone System— lets you easily handle two telephone lines at the same time. You can use both lines to make 3- or 4-way conference calls, or use one line for data communication while you are talking on the other.

Speakerphone — lets you answer calls without using the handset.

Headset Jack — lets you make or answer calls with handsfree convenience using an optional headset.

10-NumberMemory Dialing— lets you store up to 10 numbers in memory for easy dialing.

Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied battery pack provides 7 hours of continuous talk time or 7 days of standby time (when fully charged).

Paging/Two-WayIntercom System— lets you send a signal from the base to the handset, or from the handset to the base, to page someone or locate the handset when it is away from the base. If someone answers, you can use the phone as an intercom.

Dual Volume Controls — let you adjust the volume you hear through the handset and speakerphone.

Adjustable Ringer — lets you choose high or low volume for both lines’ ringers.

Wall Mountable — you can mount the phone on the wall to save space on your desk top.

Facedown or Faceup Handset Charging — you can place the handset on the base facedown or faceup.

40 Channels — automatically selects a clear channel when you make or answer a call.

5

phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off the base.

Line Status Indicators — show if a line is available, in use, or on hold.

Redial — lets you quickly redial the last number dialed.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services, such as Call Waiting.

Tone/Pulse Dialing — lets you use your phone with either type of service, and you can easily switch from pulse to tone dialing for long-distance, bank-by- phone, or other special services.

Hearing-AidCompatibility— lets you use your phone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

TAD FEATURES

Call Screening — lets you listen as a caller leaves a message so you can decide whether or not to answer the call.

Day/Time Stamp — records the day and time each message was recorded.

Two-Line System — records incoming messages separately for Line 1 and Line 2.

Two Prerecorded Messages — gives you the option of using one of two prerecorded outgoing messages or recording your own.

Adjustable Incoming Message Recording Time — lets you set the TAD to record one minute or four minutes. You can set for each line separately.

Announcement Only — lets you play an announcement for callers to hear, without recording their messages.

Message-Counter — shows the number of messages the TAD has recorded.

Programmable PIN — you can set a two-digit personal identification number (PIN) for secure remote operation.

Memo Recording — lets you leave messages for yourself or others in your home or office. You can also record your phone conversation.

Important: Every state has different regulations governing the recording of conversations over the telephone. Be sure to check your local, state and federal laws before using this product to record any telephone conversation in order to determine that your use is in compliance with such laws or guidelines.

Phone Pick-UpDetection— stops recording when you pick up any phone on the same line as the phone, and resets to answer the next call.

Adjustable Ring Number — lets you set the TAD to answer after three or five rings, or use Toll Saver to avoid unnecessary charges when you call by long distance to check your messages.

Digital Volume Control — lets you precisely adjust the speakerphone and message playback.

Important:

Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using your phone. To be safe, you should

6

Features

also have a corded phone that does not need AC power to operate so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection so you can use the handset.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

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

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 (or three in rural areas), your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your telephone 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 your telephone.

Note: You must not connect your telephone to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

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 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 still exists.

You must use shielded interface cables with this equipment.

You can place the phone’s base on a desk or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate or directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:

near an accessible AC outlet

near a modular telephone jack

10

A Quick Look At Your Telephone

out of the way of normal activities

away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, metal walls or filing cabinets, wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

away from other cordless phones

The base’s location affects the handset’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Caution: The supplied AC adapter was designed specifically for your phone. Use only the supplied adapter.

Connecting to Phone Lines

To take full advantage of the phone’s capabilities, you must have two phone lines with separate phone numbers. If you have only one line, you can order a second line from your phone company.

You can connect the phone to the lines in one of these ways:

connect two lines through a two-linemodular phone jack

connect two lines through two oneline modular phone jacks

connect one line through a one-linemodular phone jack

Notes:

Your phone connects directly to a modular phone jack. If your phone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update it using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can have the phone company update it for you.

The line that connects a two-linephone jack to the phone company wiring must betwisted-paircable. Otherwise, you might hear interference (crosstalk) between the two lines.

The USOC number of the two-linejack to be installed is RJ14C (RJ14W for a wall plate). The USOC number of asingle-linejack is RJ11C.

On a Desk Top

1.To connect the phone to a two-linephone jack, plug one end of the supplied longtwo-linemodular cord intoTEL LINE 1/2 on the back of the phone.

TEL LINE 1/2

Note: If you connect the phone to atwo-linephone jack with atwo-linecord, do not connect another (third) phone line toTEL LINE 2 or the phone will not operate properly. Instead, you can connect another phone device, such as a fax machine or modem.

To connect the phone to two oneline phone jacks, plug one end of the supplied long two-linemodular cord intoTEL LINE 1/2 and plug another cord (not supplied) intoTEL LINE 2.

Installation

11

To connect the phone to a single one-linephone jack, plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into

TEL LINE 1/2 or TEL LINE 2.

Note: If you connect the phone to a singleone-linephone jack, avoid pressing the unused line button or you might hear feedback.

2.Plug the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into DC IN 9V on the back of the base.

DC IN 9V

3.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the bottom of the base.

4.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

5.Connect the phone cord(s) to the modular phone jack(s).

6.Raise the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

On a Wall Plate or a Wall

Note: To mount the base directly on the wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the bracket.

1.Drill two holes 315/16 inches apart. Then thread a screw into each hole,

letting the heads extend about 5/16 inch from the wall.

2.Insert the two tabs at the top of the wide end of the supplied bracket into the base’s lower tab slots as shown, then press down on the bracket’s latches and insert them into the clip slots.

3.Connect the phone line as described in “On a Desk Top” on Page 11.

4.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into DC IN 9V on the back of the base.

5.Route the adapter’s cord through the narrow groove on the bracket. If you are using two phone cords, route the second cord through one of the wide grooves on the bracket.

6.To mount the phone on a wall plate, plug the other end of the short modular cord into the wall plate jack, then align the bracket’s keyhole slots with the wall plate studs and slide the base downward to secure it. If you are using two phone cords, plug the second cord into the second phone jack.

slots with the mounted screws and slide the base downward to secure it. Connect the phone cord(s) to the modular phone jack(s).

7.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

8.Press and lift out the handset holder, flip it over as shown, then snap it back into place.

9.Raise the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

CONNECTING AND

CHARGING THE

BATTERY PACK

Your phone comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadmiumbattery pack installed in the handset, but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about 24 hours.

1.Press down and slide off the battery pack compartment cover.

2.Lift the battery pack out of the compartment. Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the

compartment. The connector fits only one way.

3.Put the battery pack in the compartment.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, simply place the handset on the base, facing either up or down. The CHARGE indicator on the base lights.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE indicator lights when the handset is on the base, even if the battery pack is not connected.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear a five-beeperror signal when you pressLINE 1 orLINE 2. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds. This resets the security accessprotection code.

Using a pencil eraser, clean the charging contacts on the handset and the base about once a month.

If the phone does not work, try recharging the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to flash the line indicators.)

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds. When this happens, you cannot make another call on the phone until you recharge the battery pack.

Installation

13

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until the line indicators flash. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base to reset the security access-protectioncode. If it was the handset that lost power, recharge the battery pack.

The supplied battery pack should last about one year. When it loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack Store (see Replacing the battery pack.

SETTING THE DIALING MODE

Set DIAL MODE on the back of the base for the type of service you have. If you are not sure which type you have, do this test.

1.Be sure DIAL MODE is set toT (tone).

2.Press LINE 1 on the handset. Then listen for the dial tone.

3.Press any number other than 0.

Note: If your phone system requires that you dial an access code (9, for example) before you dial an outside number, do not press the access code either.

If the dial tone stops, that line has tone service. If the dial tone continues, that line has pulse service.

4.Press LINE 2, listen for the dial tone, and repeat Step 3.

If you have tone service on both lines, leave DIAL MODE set toT.

If you have pulse service on either line, set DIAL MODE toP (pulse). You can use tone services on the

line which supports them by pressing /TONE before any other keys.

ADJUSTING THE RINGER

The phone lets you control its base and handset ringer volumes separately. You can choose a high or low ringer setting for the base or the handset.

On the Handset

At any time except during a call, repeatedly press VOLUME to change the ringer’s volume.

On the Base

Set RING VOL on the back of the base to

OFF,LO, orHI. WithRING VOL set to

OFF, the base’s ringer does not sound when a call is received, but the handset when it is off the base (and any other phone connected to the same line) still rings.

Note: TheRING VOL setting on the base is common to both lines.

14

Installation

SETTING THE NUMBER OF RINGS

Set RING TIME on the back of the base to3,5, orTS (toll-saver)to select how long the phone waits to answer a call (3 rings, 5 rings, ortoll-saver).

Notes:

If you plan to check messages by long distance, set RING TIME toTS (see “Using theToll-Saver”on Page 26).

The ring time setting is common to both lines.

SETTING THE DAY/TIME

You must set the day of the week and time so the phone can record the correct day and time of each message.

Notes:

Enter each keypress within about 2 minutes. Otherwise, the phone exits the time setting process and you must begin again with Step 1.

If a call is received during the setup process, the phone exits the time setting process. Begin again with Step 1.

1.Hold down CLOCK until the phone beeps. The phone announces the currently set day and displays the day’s number (0 for Sunday,1 for Monday, and so on).

2.To change the day of the week, repeatedly press SKIP to move forward orREPEAT to move backward. To set the correct day of the week when it displays, pressCLOCK.

3.The phone announces the hour. To change the hour, repeatedly press or hold down SKIP orREPEAT. To set the correct hour when it displays, pressCLOCK.

4.The phone announces the minutes. To change the minutes, repeatedly press or hold down SKIP orREPEAT. To set the correct minutes when they display, pressCLOCK.

5.The phone announces “AM” or “PM,” and A orP appears. PressSKIP orREPEAT to change this setting. PressCLOCK again to set AM or PM.

6.To check the day and time, press CLOCK. The phone announces the currently set day and time.

Note: When power fails, the clock retains the current time. When the power is restored, it starts counting again from the time the power failed.
