Important:

Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When the power is off, you cannot make or receive calls using your ET-1109.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.

Your phone operates on standard radio frequencies as allocated by the FCC. It is possible for other radio units operating nearby on similar frequencies to unintentionally intercept your conversation or cause interference. This possible lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Your ET-1109conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the device’sringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the base.

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

4

FCC STATEMENT

Your ET-1109complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the bottom of the base.

Note: You must not connect your phone to any of the following:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

The ET-1109complies with the limits for a Class B digital device as specified in Part 15 ofFCC 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.

INSTALLATION

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the phone on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it directly on a wall.

Select a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a 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: You must use a Class

!2 power source that supplies 9 volts DC and delivers at least

210 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the ET1109's DC IN 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the ET1109 or the adapter.

Notes:

Your telephone connects directly to a modular phone line jack. If your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available from your local Ra-

dioShack store. Or, you can let the telephone company update the wiring for you.

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

On a Desk

Follow these steps when you place the base on a desk, shelf or table.

1.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the base.

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

4.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

5.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

1.Plug one end of the supplied short modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the base as in “On a Desk Top,” Step 1, on Page 6.

2.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC IN 9V jack as in “On a Desk Top,” Step 3.

3.Route the adapter and modular cords through the grooves on the bracket.

4.Plug the modular cord’s other end 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.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

6.Press and lift out the handset holder. Rotate it 180°, then snap it back into place so it holds the handset.

7.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

Note: To mount theET-1109directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.

3.Align the bracket’s keyhole slots with the mounting screws and slide the base downward to secure it.

CONNECTING AND CHARGING THE BATTERY PACK

The ET-1109comes with a rechargeablenickel-cadmiumbattery pack 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.

3.Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment, (the connector fits only one way), replace the battery pack, and replace the cover.

8

43-1109.fmPage 9 Friday, June 18, 1999 10:26 AM

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights and Total:00 appears on the handset display.

CHARGE/IN USE

Indicator

Recharge the battery pack when Low Battery flashes on the display.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. The CHARGE/IN USE 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 an error tone when you press TALK. Return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the securityaccess-protectioncode.

If the base loses power for about 30 minutes while the handset is away from it, the security access-protec-tion code might be lost. To reset the code, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds.

The handset does not lose its security access-protectioncode even if the battery pack is completely discharged.

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps every 3 seconds and Low Battery flashes. When this happens, you cannot make a call until you recharge the battery pack.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery by keeping the handset off the base until Low Battery flashes on the display. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the display is blank and the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to light the display.)

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack’s usable life.

9

43-1109.fmPage 10 Friday, June 18, 1999 10:26 AM

The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. When it loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack from your local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 25).

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, after you charge the handset battery pack, do this test.

1. Set DIAL MODE toT (tone).

2.Lift the handset, press TALK, and listen for a 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 dial the access code either.

If the dial tone stops, you have touch-toneservice. LeaveDIAL MODE set toT.

10

If the dial tone continues, you have pulse service. Set DIAL MODE toP (pulse).

4.Press TALK or place the handset on the base to hang up.

SETTING THE RINGER TONE/VOLUME

You can select one of four different ringer tone/volume settings on the handset. At any time, except during a call, press orto select the desired ringer setting. Each time you press the button, the phone rings at the selected setting and the display showsRinger A High,

Ringer A Low, Ringer B High, or Ringer B Low.

Note: PressingatRinger A High oratRinger B Low does not change the setting. Press the opposite arrow key to change the setting up or down when at the highest or lowest level.

TURNING AUTO TALK ON/OFF

Your phone is preset so you must press TALK when you lift the handset from the base to answer a call. With auto talk turned on, you can answer a call by just lifting the handset from the base. If the handset is away from the base, you can answer by pressing any key.
