FEATURES

Your Radio Shack ET-910900 MHz Digital Cordless Speakerphone With Dual Keypads uses advanced digital cordless telephone technology to give you superior sound quality. It uses the recently allocated 900 MHz band which means less interference, clearer sound, and greater range than 46/49 MHz cordless telephones. Its cordless operation and dual keypads let you make or answer calls just about anywhere in your home or office. Its features include:

900 MHz Operation — provides better sound and less interference than many other cordless phones.

Digitally Encoded Signal — prevents other people from picking up your phone’s signal and listening to your conversations.

Dual Keypads — a full set of keys on both theET-910’shandset and base let you use either keypad to make and answer calls or program its features.

Speakerphone — lets you make or answer calls without using the handset.

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

Security Access Protection Code

— changes each time you place the handset on the base, to minimize the chances of other cordless phones using your phone line.

10 Channels — scans 10 channels (frequency pairs used between the base and the handset) and automatically selects the one with the least interference each time you make or receive a call, and lets you change the channel during a call.

Out of Range Signal — the handset beeps to let you know when you move out of the base’s operating range.

Two-WayIntercom/Paging System

lets you send a signal from the base to the handset, or from the handset to the base, so you can page someone or easily locate the handset when it is away from the base. If someone answers, you can use theET-910like atwo-wayintercom.

Any-KeyAnswer —lets you press any key on the handset (except OFF) to answer an incoming call.

let you adjust the volume of the sound you hear through the handset and the speakerphone.

Programmable Ringers — let you select from four ringer types and turn the ringer on or off from both the handset and the speakerphone.

Handset/Base Disable — lets you disable the ET-910’s handset or base during a call to prevent anyone from interrupting your call at the other keypad.

Privacy — prevents the person on the other end of the phone line from hearing your conversation with someone in the room.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services such as call waiting.

Redial — lets you quickly dial the last number dialed.

Touch Tone (DTMF) or Pulse Dialing — lets you use your phone with either type of dialing.

Hearing Aid Compatible — lets you use this telephone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

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

For your records, we recommend you record the phone’s serial number in the space below. The number is located on the bottom of the base.

Serial Number:

Important: Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using yourET-910.For this reason, theET-910should not be your only telephone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not require AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

Warning: To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or moisture.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

Your telephone conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the label on the base’s back.

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, your phone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

4

FCC STATEMENT

This telephone complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC Registration Number and the REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the label on the base’s back.

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

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key phone systems

Note: Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC. Even though the access protection code prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

INSTALLATION

SELECTING A

LOCATION

You can set the ET-910’sbase on a flat surface (such as a desktop orcounter-top),mount it on a modular jack wall plate, or mount it directly on the wall. The base’s location affects the phone’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which one provides the best performance.

Select a location that is:

Near an AC outlet

Near a telephone line jack

Away from electrical machinery, electrical appliances, and metal walls or filing cabinets

Away from wireless intercoms, alarms, and room monitors

If the phone line jack is not a modular jack, you must update the wiring. You can convert the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local Radio Shack store. Or, you can let the phone company update the wiring for you.

Notes:

The phone company charges for the installation of the necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the baseboard jack to be installed is RJ11C.

After you mount the phone, you must install the battery pack and charge it for 24 hours before you use it the first time. See “Preparation” on Page 12.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING THE

BATTERY PACK

To install the supplied rechargeable battery pack, place it on the battery compartment tracks, then slide it up (toward the antenna) until it locks in place.

Note: The phone uses one rechargeablenickel-cadmiumbattery pack. At the end of the battery’s useful life, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Contact your local, county, or state hazardous waste management authorities for information on recycling or disposal programs in your area. Some options that might be available are: municipal curbside collection,drop-offboxes at retailers, recycling collection centers, and mailback programs.

Note: You must charge a new battery pack at least 24 hours before you use it the first time.

When the handset’s battery pack no longer recharges, replace the battery pack. You can order a replacement battery pack from your local Radio Shack store.

To remove the battery pack, press the tab on the back of the handset, slide the battery down (away from the antenna) until it stops, then lift it up to remove it.

CHARGING THE

BATTERY PACK

You must charge the battery pack at least 24 hours before you use the ET-910the first time or when you replace the battery. To charge or recharge the battery pack, simply place the handset on the cradle. The CHARGE indicator lights.

Notes:

If the CHARGE indicator does not light or blinks continuously when you place the handset on the cradle, be sure the battery and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected. Also, check the charging contacts on both the handset and base. If the contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean them with a pencil eraser.

If the handset is charged, and the AC adapter is unplugged from the AC outlet or the AC outlet loses power, the handset beeps intermittently until power is restored to the base and the security access-protectioncode is reset. To turn off the handset sooner so it stops beeping, pressTONE ,#, or any number key(0-9).

If the base loses AC power and the handset is away from the base, place the handset on the base for a few seconds after AC power is restored. This resets the security access-protectioncode.

You can recharge the battery pack at any time, but you must be sure to recharge the battery pack when the handset’s PRIVACY/LOW BATT indicator lights.

If the battery pack will not hold a charge, replace it. We recommend you replace the battery pack about once a year.

Notes:

The first time you use your phone after charging a new or completely discharged battery, the handset might not work or it might sound an error tone when you press TALK. If this happens, replace the handset on the cradle for about 5 seconds, then try again.

About once a month, fully discharge the battery. Otherwise, it will lose its ability to fully recharge, and you might have to recharge and replace it more often.

To fully discharge the battery, keep the handset off the cradle until PRIVACY/LOW BATT turns on. Then return the handset to the base and fully recharge the battery.

Some deeply discharged batteries take longer to charge. If overnight charging is not sufficient, try charging for up to 48 hours.

To take a call off hold and resume your conversation, simply press SPKR on the base orTALK on the handset (whichever you used to make or answer the call). The HOLD indicator turns off.

Notes:

If you are using the handset, you can lay it down on a flat surface or place it on the base after you place the call on hold.

If the handset is on the base and a call is on hold, you can simply pick up the handset to take the call off hold.

USING PRIVACY

To talk to someone else in the room without the person on the other end of the phone line hearing your conversation, press and release PRIVACY during the call. The PRIVACY/ LOW BATT indicator on the handset or the PRIVACY indicator on the base lights steadily.

CHANGING CHANNELS

The ET-910continuously scans 10 channels (frequency pairs used between the base and the handset) and automatically selects the one with the least interference each time you make or receive a call using the handset.

If you notice interference during a call, however, you can repeatedly press INT.CM on the handset to try and find a clearer channel. The ET910 changes to a different channel each time you press the key.
