TAD-727

900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone with Digital Answering System

43-727.fmPage 2 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

FEATURES

Your RadioShack TAD-727900 MHz Digital Spread Spectrum Cordless Telephone uses advanced cordless telephone technology to give you superior audio quality and extended range.

The TAD (Telephone Answering Device) has about a 15 minute record capacity and stores all messages on a microchip. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines. For example, you can delete individual messages and save the rest. Because your TAD is fully digital, there are no tapes to bother with, no tape mechanisms to wear out, and no lost messages if power fails.

The remote operation feature lets you access your TAD from a touch-tonephone, and guides you through system operation with voice prompts.

Telephone Features

900 MHz Operation — provides longer range and less interference than many other cordless phones.

Spread Spectrum Technology — spreads the signal across several frequencies, providing additional security for your phone conversations.

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

20 Channels — automatically selects a clear channel when you make or answer a call, even while talking.

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 the TAD-727 as a two-way intercom.

Facedown or Faceup Handset Charging — you can place the handset on the base facedown or faceup.

Ample Talk and Standby Time — the supplied battery (when fully charged) provides about 4 hours of talk time or 7 days of standby time.

Security Access-ProtectionCode— automatically prevents other cordless phone users from using your phone line while the handset is off the base.

Redial — lets you quickly redial the last number dialed.

Flash — sends an electronic switchhook signal for use with special phone services, such as Call Waiting.

Out of Range Signal — lets you know when you move out of the base's operating range.

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 TAD-727.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 to the base is lost, PF appears on the display to show that a power failure occurred. TheTAD-727loses the security accessprotection code connection between the base and the handset. When power is restored, put the handset on the base briefly to restore this connection so you can use the handset.

43-727.fmPage 5 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

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, your phones might not ring. 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.

FCC STATEMENT

Your 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 bottom of the base.

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

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

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

To eliminate interference, you can try one or more of the following corrective measures.

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the distance between the equipment and the radio or TV.

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

Consult your local RadioShack store if the problem still exists.

INSTALLATION

MOUNTING THE PHONE

You can place the TAD-727'sbase on a desk or table, mount it on a standard wall plate, or mount it directly on a wall. Choose a location that is:

near an AC outlet

near a 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 handset's range. If you have a choice of several locations, try each to see which provides the best performance.

Caution: You must use a Class

!2 power source that supplies 9 volts DC and delivers at least

500 mA. Its center tip must be set to negative and its plug must fit the TAD727's DC 9V AC ADAPTER jack. The supplied RadioShack adapter was specifically designed for yourTAD-727.Use only the supplied adapter. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage theTAD-727or the adapter.

Notes:

Your telephone connects directly to a modular phone line jack. If your phone line jack is not a modular jack, you can update the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available from your local RadioShack store. Or, you can let the telephone company update the wiring for you.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C, or RJ11W for a wall plate jack.

On a Desk

Follow these steps when you place the base on a desk or table.

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

2.Plug the modular cord's other end into a modular phone line jack.

3.Insert the supplied AC adapter's barrel plug into the DC 9V AC ADAPTER jack on the back of the base.

10

43-727.fmPage 11 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

4.Route the adapter's cord through the strain relief slot on the base.

5.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet. PF (power failure) flashes on the digital display.

6.Lift the base's antenna to a vertical position.

On a Wall Plate or Wall

1.Plug one end of the supplied short modular cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the base as in “On a Desk,” Step 1, on Page 10.

2.Insert the supplied AC adapter’s barrel plug into the DC 9V AC ADAPTER jack as in “On a Desk,” Step 3 on Page 10.

3.Route the adapter’s cord through the strain relief slot on the bottom of the base.

4.Insert the mounting bracket’s tabs into the base’s tab slots then press down on the bracket’s clips to insert them into the clip slots.

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

6.Plug the adapter into a standard AC outlet. PF flashes on the display.

7.Lift the base’s antenna to a vertical position.

Note: To mount the TAD directly on a wall, you need two screws (not supplied) with heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the bottom of the base.

CONNECTING AND

CHARGING THE

BATTERY PACK

The TAD-727comes with a rechargeablenickel-cadmiumbattery pack in the handset but not connected. Before using your phone, you must connect the battery pack, then charge it for about 12 hours.

12

1.Press down and slide off the battery pack compartment cover.

2.Lift the battery pack out of the compartment.

3.Plug the battery pack's connector into the socket in the compartment (the connector fits only one way), route the battery pack's leads through the strain relief slot and place the battery pack into the compartment.

Note: When you connect the battery, the TALK/LOW/BATT indicator flashes (when in the phone is not in use) indicating that the security access protection code on the handset was lost.

To reset the code, return the handset to the base for about 2 seconds.

4. Replace the cover.

43-727.fmPage 13 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

To charge the battery pack, place the handset either faceup or facedown on the base. The IN USE/CHARGE indicator on the base lights.

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

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

Notes:

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear three beeps when you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 2 seconds. This resets the securityaccess-protectioncode.

If the battery pack is completely discharged, the handset might lose its security access-protectioncode. To reset the code, return the handset to the base for about 2 seconds.

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, the handset beeps every 16 seconds and the TALK/ LOW BATT indicator flashes. When this happens, you cannot make another 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/ LOW BATT indicator flashes. Otherwise, the battery pack loses its ability to recharge.

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

If you are not going to use your phone for an extended period of time, disconnect the battery pack. This increases the battery pack's usable life.

The supplied battery pack should last for about a year. When it loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack from your local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 33).

13

43-727.fmPage 14 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

SETTING THE

DIALING MODE

Set PULSE/TONE on the back of the base for the type of service you have. If you are not sure which type you have, once the battery pack is fully charged, do this test.

1.Be sure PULSE/TONE is set to

TONE.

2.Lift the handset, press TALK, and listen for a dial tone.

3.Press any number other than 0.

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

If the dial tone stops, you have touchtone service. Leave PULSE/TONE set to

TONE.

If the dial tone continues, you have pulse service. Set PULSE/TONE to

PULSE.

14

SETTING THE RINGERS

Turning the Ringers On or Off

You can turn the ringers on the base or handset on or off.

Use RINGER OFF/ON on the base to turn the ringer on the base on or off.

Use RINGER OFF/ON on the handset's left side to turn the handset’s ringer on or off.

Notes:

The handset does not ring when it is on the base, even when RINGER OFF/ON is set toON.

If you turn off the ringer, you can still make calls (and answer calls if you hear another phone on the same line ringing).

43-727.fmPage 15 Monday, December 20, 1999 4:28 PM

Setting the Handset's Ringer

Volume

Be sure RINGER OFF/ON located on the side of the handset is set toON.

Each or pause entry (see “Entering a Pause”) counts as one digit in memory.

Each number you store can be up to 16 digits long.

3.Press MEM then press the memory location number(0-9)where you want to store the number. A beep sounds to indicate that the number is stored.

4.For each stored number, write the person's or company's name next to the appropriate location number on the supplied memory directory sticker. Peel the backing from the sticker and attach it to the phone.

To change a number in memory, store a new one in its place. To clear a number

from memory, press MEM twice, then press the memory location number(0-9)you want to clear.

Entering a Pause

In some telephone systems, you must dial an access code (9, for example) and wait for a second dial tone before you can dial an outside number. You can store the access code with the phone number. However, you should also store a pause after the access code to allow the outside line time to connect. To enter a 2-secondpause, pressREDIAL at each point where a pause is needed. For a longer pause, pressREDIAL additional times.

Dialing a Memory Number

To dial a stored number, lift the handset from the base and press TALK. When you hear the dial tone, pressMEM and enter the memory location number(0-9)for the number you want to dial.

Chain-DialingService Numbers
