FEATURES

Your RadioShack Caller ID System 2000 is the latest in telephone Caller ID technology. If Caller ID service is available in your area and you subscribe to it, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the date and time of the call between the first and second rings. The module displays this information during an incoming call to help you identify the caller and avoid unwanted calls.

You can connect the module to one or two phone lines, and an answering machine if desired. The module’s display shows which line received the incoming call.

The module stores and displays up to 100 single (number only) or multiple (name and number) Caller ID records.

Your module includes these features:

Easy Installation — the module easily connects to your telephone line so you can quickly begin using it.

Built-In Error Checking — ensures accurate information.

Line Indicator — shows the phone line on which you received each call.

Call Summary — displays the number of new calls you received.

43-972.fmPage 4 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

Large Display — makes it easy to see caller information, phone line information, and the current time and date.

Clock and Date Display — displays the current time and date as provided to Caller ID service subscribers by your local telephone company.

Message Received Indicator — flashes when you get an anonymous call, when you have at least one new call you have not reviewed, or when you have received voice mail (if you have message waiting service).

Trilingual Operation — lets you set the module to display messages in English, French, or Spanish.

Contrast Control — lets you adjust the display contrast for the best readability.

Two Mounting Options — you can place the module on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall.

Note: Your module requires one9-voltbattery (not supplied) for backup power.

For your records, we recommend you record the module’s serial number here. The number is on the module’s bottom panel.

FCC INFORMATION

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

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone 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.

Your module complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of the module.

Note: You must not connect your module to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key telephone systems

43-972.fmPage 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

In the unlikely event that your module causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect your service. If this happens, the phone company attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you as soon as possible and advises you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the phone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this module. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

This module complies with the limits for a Class B 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 module might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly.

To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following:

Reorient or relocate the radio or TV receiving antenna

Increase the distance between the module and the radio or TV

Use outlets on different electrical circuits for the module and the radio or TV

7

43-972.fmPage 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem continues.

If your module is not performing as it should, check its connection to your phones and the phone lines. If you are unable to locate the problem, take your module to your local RadioShack store for assistance.

PREPARATION

CONNECTING THE SUPPLIED AC ADAPTER

The supplied AC adapter provides power for the module. Please note that although the module displays a time and date when you connect power, the displayed time and date are incorrect until the phone company sends the correct time and date during the first call.

Cautions:

Use only the supplied AC adapter. Even other adapters that have the same ratings as the recommended adapter might not work properly.

Always plug the AC adapter into the module’s 9VDC jack before plugging the adapter’s plug into an AC outlet, and unplug the adapter’s plug from the AC outlet before unplugging the adapter from the module’s9VDC jack.

11

43-972.fmPage 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

Follow these steps to connect the AC adapter.

1.Plug the AC adapter’s barrel plug into the module’s 9VDC jack.

2.Plug the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

INSTALLING/REPLACING THE BATTERY

The module uses a 9-voltbattery to protect its memory if the power fails. We recommend you use an alkaline battery (such as RadioShack Cat. No.23-553).

12

43-972.fmPage 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

Notes:

If AC power fails or if the AC adapter is disconnected, the module automatically tests the battery each time it receives a new call. When appears on the display or the display dims (even after you restore power), replace the battery.

You must install a fresh battery within 5 seconds after you remove the old one. Otherwise, you might lose the information stored in the module.

Follow these steps to install or replace the battery.

1.If the phone lines and AC adapter are already connected, unplug them from the module.

13

43-972.fmPage 14 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

2.Use a coin or other flat object to turn the screw on the bottom of the module to OPEN, then slide off the battery compartment cover.

SETTING THE DISPLAY LANGUAGE

When you connect power to the module the first time, the module begins its start-upsequence. The message received indicator on the front of the module lights, and a test screen and the total memory capacity appear on the display. Then the module displays:

ESP FRA ENG

DELETE

 

REVIEW

 

 

 

 

 

To select Spanish, press DELETE. To select French, press REVIEW. To select English, pressREVIEW .

To change the language selection later, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Wait until the display dims, then reinstall the battery and plug in the AC adapter. After the module performs the start-upsequence again, press the appropriate button to select the desired language.

Caution: Changing the language selection deletes all caller information from the module.

16

43-972.fmPage 17 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

Follow these steps to adjust the display’s contrast for the best visibility.

1.Press and hold down DELETE.

2.While holding down DELETE, within 6 seconds, repeatedly press

REVIEW to decrease the contrast orREVIEW to increase it.

Caution: While reviewing call records, if you hold downDELETE for longer than 6 seconds without pressing aREVIEW button, the system deletes all caller information from its memory.

3.Release DELETE.

43-972.fmPage 18 Monday, August 16, 1999 4:19 PM

CONNECTING TO THE PHONES/PHONE LINES

The module connects to your phone(s) and the phone line(s) using four modular phone line connectors. You can connect your module between a two-linephone (or one or twoone-linephones) and atwo-linemodular phone line jack (or twoone-linejacks). To use all of the module’s features, you must connect it to two separate phone lines. Each of these lines must have its own phone number. If you do not have two phone lines, contact your phone company to get a second line.

Notes:

If you connect the module to only one phone line, the module displays Caller ID information only for that line.

If your phone lines do not have modular jacks, you can update the wiring yourself. Or, you can have the telephone company update your telephone wiring for you.

RadioShack stores sell jacks and adapters to convert older wiring methods to modular wiring.

The telephone company charges to install the necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C (for a oneline phone line jack) or RJ14C (for a two-linephone line jack).
