INSTRUCTIONS

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

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 phone. 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 phone loses the security access-protectioncode connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection.

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

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

In the unlikely event that your phone causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily discontinue 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 telephone. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

Your phone might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether your phone is causing the interference, turn off your phone. If the interference goes away, your phone is causing it.

Try to eliminate the interference by:

moving your phone away from the receiver

connecting your phone to an AC outlet that is on a different electrical circuit from the receiver contacting your local RadioShack store for help

If you cannot eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using your phone.

Some cordless telephones operate on frequencies that might cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR.

LIGHTNING

Your telephone has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in telephone line and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the telephone or power lines can damage your telephone.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your phone when storms approach to reduce the possibility of damage.

ˆ Features

Your RadioShack 2.4 GHz Cordless Speakerphone combines a 2.4 GHz digital cordless telephone unit and a digital TAD (Telephone Answering Device). The 2.4 GHz band means less interference, clearer sound, and greater range than other types of cordless telephones.

The TAD stores up to 18 minutes of messages on a computer chip and records each message’s day and time. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines:

You can delete individual messages and save the rest.

There are no tapes to bother with and no tape mechanisms to wear out.

The remote operation feature lets you operate your TAD from a touch-tonephone (or from a rotary phone with an optional pocket tone dialer).

ˆ Installation

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the TAD’s base on a desk or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate or 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 phone’s range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power

!source that supplies 9V DC

and delivers at least 350 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the telephone's

jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the telephone or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the phone before you connect it to AC power. If you disconnect the power, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the phone.

Notes:

Your telephone connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your phone line jack is not a modular jack, 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 (RJ11W for a wall plate).

On a Desk Top

1.Insert the bracket’s tabs into the base’s upper tab slots, then press down on the bracket’s clips and insert them into the clip slots.

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

3.Plug the modular cord’s other end into a modular telephone line jack.

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

5.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the bracket.

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

CONNECTING, CHARGING, AND REPLACING THE BATTERY PACK

The TAD comes with a rechargeable nickelcadmium battery pack installed 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. Plug the battery pack’s connector into the socket in the compartment. The connector fits only one way.

3.Put the battery pack in the compartment.

4.Replace the cover.

To charge the battery pack, simply place the handset on the base, facing either up or down. The CHARGE/IN USE indicator on the base lights.

Recharge the battery pack when the TALK/ LOW BATT indicator flashes.

Important: Be sure the battery pack is properly connected before you try to charge it. If the CHARGE/IN USE indicator flashes slowly when the handset is on the base, the battery pack is not connected properly.

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear a five-beeperror signal. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds to reset the securityaccess-protectioncode.

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

If the phone does not work, recharge the battery pack. (The battery power might be too low to flash the TALK/LOW BATT indicator.)

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

About once a month, fully discharge the battery pack by keeping the handset off the base until the TALK/BATT LOW indicator flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge.

If the battery pack is completely discharged or the base loses power while the handset is away from it, place the handset on the base to reset the security access-protectioncode. If it was the handset that lost power, recharge the battery pack.

The supplied battery pack should last about a year. If the battery pack does not hold a charge for more than 2 hours after an overnight charge, replace it with a new 3.6-volt,600 mAh battery pack with a connector that fits the socket in the battery compartment. You can order a replacement battery pack through your local RadioShack store. Install the new battery pack and charge it for about 24 hours.
