Your TAD (Telephone Answering Device) is ETL listed to UL standards and meets all applicable FCC standards.

IMPORTANT CALLER ID INFORMATION

To use the TAD’s Caller ID, you must be in an area where Caller ID service is available, and you must subscribe to the service.

Where Caller ID is offered, one or more of the following options are generally available:

caller's number only

caller's name only

caller's name and number

Note: For the TAD’s Caller ID memory dial feature to operate, you must receive the caller's number.

READ THIS BEFORE

INSTALLATION

We have designed your TAD to conform to federal regulations and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each device that you connect to the TAD line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the TAD's ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of your TAD.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five (three in rural areas), your TAD might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your TAD 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 TAD to:

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

In the unlikely event that your TAD 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.

LIGHTNING

Your TAD 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 TAD.

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

ˆ Features

Your RadioShack 12-MemorySpeakerphone combines a speakerphone, ahigh-qualityful-ly-digitalanswering system and a Caller ID unit in one system. The TAD (Telephone Answering Device) prevents you from missing incoming calls and messages. Fully digital means the TAD stores all messages on a computer chip — there are no tape mechanism to wear out and no tapes to bother with. This gives you capabilities thattape-basedanswering machine do not have. For example, you can listen quickly from message to message without listening to all of them.

The TAD also shows the caller's telephone number (and name, if available in your area) and the current date and time, as provided by your local phone company to Caller ID service subscribers. It saves up to 62 Caller ID records that you can review and call back.

AC 9V 400mA

43-705.fmPage 7 Tuesday, May 23, 2000 8:54 AM

ˆ Preparation

INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY

You can install an optional 9V backup battery so if the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, the TAD will save the messages, time and day settings, CBT and remote operation security codes, and Caller ID records. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend you use a RadioShack alkaline battery.

Cautions: Use only a fresh battery of the required size and recommended type.

1.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws on the battery compartment cover, then remove the cover.

LIFT

2.Snap the battery's contacts firmly onto the battery connector and place the battery in the compartment.

3.Replace the cover and secure it with the two screws.

Replace the battery when appears.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the TAD for a month or longer, remove the battery. A battery can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

MOUNTING THE TAD

You can place the TAD 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 both an AC outlet and a modular phone line jack.

Notes:

Your TAD 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.

Cautions:

You must use a Class 2 power

!source that supplies 9V AC and delivers at least 400 mA.

Its plug must fit the TAD's

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

Always connect the AC adapter to the TAD before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from the TAD.

On a Desk

1.Plug one end of the supplied long modular cord into the TEL. LINE jack on the back of the TAD, then plug the cord's other end into a modular phone line jack.

2.Plug the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the AC 9V 400mA jack on the back of the TAD, then plug the other end of the adapter into a standard AC outlet.

When you first connect power, the TAD beeps once, MEMORY TEST appears, and the message counter counts up from0 to22. Then the TAD beeps.0 CALL 0 MESSAGE appears. OGM1 and OGM2 flash to indicate that no outgoing messages are recorded.

On a Wall or Wall Plate

Note: To mount the TAD directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit the keyhole slots on the mounting bracket. Drill two holes 315/16 inches (100 mm) apart. Then thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads extend about3/16 inch (5 mm) from the wall.

1.Plug the supplied short modular line cord into the TEL.LINE jack on the back of the TAD.

2.Insert the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the AC 9V 400 mA jack on the back of the base.

3.To mount the TAD on a wall plate, route the adapter cord hanging down and the other end of the short modular cord through the center of the bracket. Insert the tabs on the narrow end of the bracket into the slots on the bottom of the base, then push the tab on the wide end of the bracket into the lower slots on the bottom of the base.

Plug the short modular cord's other end into the wall plate jack, align the base's keyhole slots with the wall plate studs, and slide the base downward to secure it.

To mount the TAD directly on a wall, with the power cord and the long modular cords hanging down, insert the tabs on the narrow end of the bracket into the slots on the bottom of the base then push the tab on the wide end of the bracket into the lower slot on the bottom of the base.

Align the TAD's keyhole slots with screws and slide the TAD down to secure it, then plug the modular cord into a modular phone line jack.

4.Slide the handset clip out of its retaining slot, rotate it 180° then slide it back into its slot.

5.Plug one end of the supplied coiled handset cord into the jack on the left side of the base. Plug the other end into the handset's jack. Then place the handset on the base.

1.Be sure T/P is set toT.

2.Lift the handset and listen for a dial tone.

3.Press any number except 0.

Note: If your phone system requires that you dial an access code (9, for example) before you dial an outside number, do not press the access code either.

If the dial tone stops, you have touchtone service. If the dial tone continues, you have pulse service.

4.If you have pulse service, set T/P toP. Otherwise, leave it set toT.

SETTING THE RINGER

RINGER OFF.LO.HI controls the TAD’s ringer volume. To adjust the ringer volume, set

RINGER OFF.LO.HI to HIor LO.

SETTING THE LONG

DISTANCE CODE

The Long Distance Code has a default setting of 1. You can change the code to “9” if you use a PBX telephone system or “0” if your telephone system requires operator assistance to make a long distance call.

Note: If you do not complete each step within 8 seconds, the TAD exits setup. Start again at Step 1.

1.Hold down STOP until the TAD beeps once.

2.Press DIAL once.1 andSET LDS CODE appear.1 flashes.
