FEATURES

Your RadioShack CID-9414-LineDisplay Caller ID gives you access to the latest in telephone technology. It displays the current date/time and caller information as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

If you subscribe to Call Waiting and Caller ID services, the CID-941also shows you information about an incoming call when you are on the phone — even if someone is using an extension on the same line.

The CID-941includes these features:

Caller ID Memory — stores and displays up to 81 incoming phone numbers, or up to 81 incoming names and phone numbers (actual capacity depends on the information sent).

Call Waiting — displays information about an incoming call when you are on the phone.

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

3

43-941.fmPage 4 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

Caller ID Memory Dialing — lets you select a stored phone number from Caller ID memory, then dial it with the touch of a button.

New Call Indicator — flashes to let you know one or more new calls have been received since you last reviewed the stored calls.

Dual Display — lar ge4-lineliquid crystal display shows information on the active call and Call Waiting at the same time, including the time the call came in.

Review Buttons — lets you scroll throu gh all call records in Caller ID memory.

Note: Your system requires two AA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory.

Your system is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC standards.

43-941.fmPage 5 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

Important Information:

To use the system’s Caller ID, and Call Waiting features you must be in an area where those services are available from your phone company, and you must subscribe to those services.

Where Caller ID is offered, one or more of the following options are generally available:

caller’s number only

caller’s name only

caller’s name and number

For your CID-941’sCaller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller’s number.

Read This Before Installation

Your CID-941conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power

5

43-941.fmPage 6 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your 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 (or three in rural areas), your phone might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

FCC Statement

Your CID-941complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of theCID-941.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key telephone systems

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

Your CID-941requires 2 AA batteries (not supplied) to protect the system’s memory during a power failure. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.

Cautions:

Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Note: When replacing the batteries, if you do not install the new batteries within one minute after removing the old ones, you will lose all information stored in theCID-941.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

1.If you are replacing the batteries, disconnect the CID-941from the telephone line.

9

43-941.fmPage 10 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

2.Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the slot next to the battery compartment cover and gently pry it up until the cover pops off.

3.Place the batteries in the compartment as indicated by the polarity symbols (+ and) marked inside.

4.Replace the cover. If you replaced the batteries, reconnect the telephone line.

When appears replace the batteries.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use theCID-941with batteries for a month or longer, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

10

43-941.fmPage 11 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

MAKING THE CONNECTIONS

Connecting an AC Adapter

To increase the battery life, you can power the CID941 using a 9V, 200 mA AC adapter and a size M Adaptaplug adapter (neither supplied). Both are available at your local RadioShack store.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power source

!listed to UL 1310 that supplies 9V DC and delivers at least 200 mA. Its cen-

ter tip must be set to negative and its plug must fit the CID-941's200mA DC 9V jack. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage theCID-941or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the CID-941before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from theCID-941.

11

43-941.fmPage 12 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

Follow these steps to use an AC adapter (not supplied.)

1.Insert the Adaptaplug into the socket on your AC adapter’s cord.

2.Insert the barrel plug into the CID-941’s 200mA DC 9Vjack.

3.Plug the other end of the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

Resetting the CID-941

Before you use the CID-941for the first time, use a straightened paper clip to pressRESET. About three seconds later,12:00AM appears.

12

43-941.fmPage 13 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

Caution: Resetting theCID-941also clears all stored call information.

Note: If theCID-941does not work after you reset it, replace the batteries (see “Installing Batteries” on Page 9). Then pressRESET again.

Connecting to the Phone Line

The CID-941connects to a modular telephone line jack and your telephone. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular wall jack, you can update the wiring yourself using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store, or have the telephone company update the wiring for you.

Notes:

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (for a single-linephone) or RJ14C (for atwo-linephone).

13

43-941.fmPage 14 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

You can connect up to four CID-941sto the same phone line (see “Using the Master/Secondary Switch” on Page 15). For proper Call Waiting operation, do not connect more than fourCID-941s,or aCID-941and another Caller ID module with Call Waiting, to the same phone line. You can connect other Caller ID systems without the Call Waiting function to the same phone line.

Connecting to a Single-LinePhone

1.Unplug your telephone’s modular cord from the wall jack, and plug it into the CID-941’sPHONE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the CID-941’sTEL LINE jack.

3.Plug the other end of the cord into the wall jack.

14

43-941.fmPage 15 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

Using the Master/Secondary Switch

The CID-941’sM/S (master/secondary) switch lets you easily connect up to fourCID-941Caller ID modules to the same phone line, so you can receive Caller ID and Call Waiting information at more than one phone on that line. Simply setM/S on one of the CID941’s toM, and set it toS on all (up to three) others.

Notes:

If you connect only one CID-941to a phone line, set itsM/S switch toM.

If M/S on more than one (or none) of the CID941’s is set toM, incoming calls might be disconnected.

You can also connect other Caller ID modules that do not have the Call Waiting function to the same phone line as your CID-941’s,as long as the total number of Caller ID modules connected to the line does not exceed four.

15

43-941.fmPage 16 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

If you connect another type of Caller ID module that has Call Waiting (other than a CID-941)to the same phone line as yourCID-941’s,the Call Waiting signal can be garbled or not received.

Connecting to a Two-LinePhone

To record information about calls received on a twoline phone, you need two CID-941’sand an optional triplex adapter (available at your local RadioShack store). Each system only records information about calls received on the line to which it is connected.

Follow these steps to connect two systems to a twoline phone.

1.Unplug your telephone’s modular cord from the wall jack and plug it into L1+L2 on the triplex adapter.

2.Plug the triplex adapter into the wall jack.

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

16

43-941.fmPage 17 Friday, January 28, 2000 10:34 AM

4.Plug the other end of the cord into L1 orL2

5.Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to connect another CID941 to the jack (L1 and L2) on the triplex adapter.

6.Slide the M-S switch (located on the back of CID941) on both units toM.

Connecting an Answering Machine

1.Unplug the answering machine’s modular cord from its line jack, then plug the cord into the CID941’s TEL LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the CID-941’sPHONE jack, then plug the other end of the cord into the answering machine’s line jack.

3.Set the answering machine to answer calls after at least two rings. This gives the CID-941time to record the caller information that the phone company sends between the first and second rings.

MOUNTING THE SYSTEM

You can set the CID-941flat on a desk, shelf, table or set it at an angle by pulling out the leg located on the bottom of theCID-941.

Mounting on a Wall

To mount the CID-941on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of theCID-941.

1.Mark the mounting screw locations on the wall with the keyhole slots on the bottom of the CID.

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

3.Insert a screw into each hole, letting the head extend 1/8 inch from the wall.

4.Connect the CID-941(see “Making the Connections” on Page 11). Align the keyhole slots on the back of theCID-941with the screw heads and slide the system down over the screw heads.
