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

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 ET-1104.To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not need AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

When AC power is lost, the ET-1104loses the securityaccess-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.

We recommend you record your phone’s serial number here. The number is on the bottom of the base.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your phone to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the phone’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of your phone.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phones might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. Upon request, you must provide the phone’s FCC registration number and REN to your telephone company. These numbers are on the bottom of the base.

Note: You must not connect your telephone to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

INSTALLATION

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the ET-1104’sbase on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a modular telephone line jack

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 RadioShack AC adapter was designed specifically for yourET-1104.Use only the supplied adapter.

Notes:

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your phone line jack is not modular, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local RadioShack store. Or, you can let the phone company update the wiring for you.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C, or RJ11W for a wall plate jack.

CONNECTING AND CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK

The ET-1104comes with a rechargeablenickel-cadmiumbattery pack in the handset but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack and then charge it for about 24 hours.

1.Press down and slide off the cover as shown.

2.Unfasten the plastic retainer strap and 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.Place the battery pack inside the compartment and fasten the retainer strap.

4.Replace the cover.

10

To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base either face-uporface-down.The CHARGE indicator on the base lights.

CHARGE Indicator

When the handset beeps and the LOW BATT indicator on the handset flashes, recharge the battery pack.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, you might hear an error tone (3 short beeps) or the phone might not work when you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for a few seconds. This resets the securityaccess-protectioncode.

If the battery pack gets completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, the security access-protectioncode needs to be reset. To reset the security code, place the handset on the base. If it was the handset that lost power, leave the handset on the base to charge the battery pack.

If the CHARGE indicator flickers rapidly when you place the handset on the base, be sure the battery pack and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected.
