FEATURES

Your TAD-1006Digital Answering System Telephone with Time/Day Stamp is a sophisticated, fully digital message center that combines a telephone and an answering machine in one convenient package.

Fully digital means the TAD-1006stores all messages on a computer chip. This gives you advanced capabilities overtape-basedanswering machines. For example, you can save individual messages while the rest are deleted.

And, because your TAD-1006is fully digital, there are no tape mechanisms to wear out and no tapes to bother with.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your system to conform 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 line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of your system.

If you are using more than one device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phone might not ring or your system might not answer. 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.

4

FCC STATEMENT

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. Both numbers appear on the bottom of your system.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key phone systems

This device compiles with Part 15 of FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

This device may not cause harmful interference.

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesirable operation.

INSTALLATION

Important: To be sure yourTAD-1006works properly, follow this sequence to install it.

1.Select a location (see “Selecting a Location”).

2.Connect the AC adapter (see “Connecting the AC Adapter”).

3.Install a backup battery (see “Installing a Backup Battery” on Page 8).

company update the wiring for you.

The phone company will charge you for the installation of necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C for a baseboard jack or RJ11W for a wallplate jack.

4.Mount the TAD-1006(see “Mounting theTAD-1006”on Page 9).

5.Connect the handset (see “Connecting the Handset” on Page 12).

6.Set the TONE-PULSE switch (see “Setting theTONE-PULSESwitch” on Page 12).

SELECTING A

LOCATION

Select a location for the TAD-1006that is near a modular phone jack and an AC outlet, and out of the way of normal activities. You can place theTAD-1006on a flat surface (such as a desktop orcounter-top),mount it on a modular jack wall plate, or mount it directly on the wall.

CONNECTING THE AC ADAPTER

Caution: You must use a Class II AC adapter that supplies 12 volts of power, delivers at least 200 milliamps, and has a plug that properly fits the TAD1006’s12V DC jack with its center tip set to negative. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the adapter and theTAD-1006.

Notes:

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 any Radio Shack store. Or, you can let the phone

1.Insert the small round plug of the supplied AC adapter into the 12V DC jack, then press the adapter’s cord into thestrain-reliefslot on the bottom of theTAD-1006.

43-768.fmPage 8 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM

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

The TAD-1006initializes, the L. BATT (low battery) indicator lights steadily, and the ANSWER, MEMO, and PLAY indicators flash six times. Then theTAD-1006beeps once and the ANSWER indicator lights steadily.

illustration

Notes:

Be sure not to press any of the TAD-1006’sbuttons while you are plugging the adapter into the AC outlet. If you accidentally press a button, unplug the adapter from the AC outlet, then plug it back in.

The answering system on your TAD-1006cannot operate without AC power. However, you can make and answer calls on the telephone without AC power.

8

INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY

If AC power fails or you unplug the TAD-1006,a 9V backup battery (not supplied) saves the messages and the settings for the day, time, and security code. We recommend you use an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No.23-553.

1.To open the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the TAD1006, loosen the screw in the cover with a small Phillips screwdriver, then lift off the cover.

illustration

2.Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to the battery connector, then put the battery into the compartment.

illustration

3.Replace the cover, then tighten the screw.

43-768.fmPage 9 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:49 PM

Replace the battery if the L.BATT (low battery) indicator turns on while the AC adapter is properly connected.

illustration

Cautions:

Before you replace the battery, be sure the supplied adapter is securely connected to an AC outlet and to the jack on the back of the TAD-1006.Otherwise, you might lose any stored information.

Always use a fresh battery of the required size and type.

Dispose of the battery promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn it.
