Important: Cordless phones such as this one require AC power to operate. When AC power is off, you cannot dial out or receive incoming calls using yourTAD-733.For this reason, theTAD-733should not be your only telephone. To be safe, you should also have a phone that does not require AC power to operate (not a cordless phone) so you can still make and receive calls if there is an AC power failure.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

FCC STATEMENT

Your TAD-733complies with Part 68 ofFCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC Registration Number and the REN to your phone company. These numbers are on the label on the back of the base.

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

coin-operatedsystems

party-linesystems

most electronic key phone systems

Your TAD-733conforms to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’sringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the label on the back of the base.

If you are using 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 phone might not ring and your answering system might not answer. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

4

Note: Your telephone operates on standard radio frequencies, as allocated by the FCC. Even though the securityaccess-protectioncode prevents unauthorized use of your phone line, it is possible for other radio units operating on similar frequencies within a certain area to unintentionally intercept your conversations and/or cause interference. This lack of privacy can occur with any cordless phone.

PREPARATION

SELECTING A LOCATION

You can place the phone on a desk top or table, or mount it on a standard wall plate. Select a location that is:

near an accessible 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

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

800 mA. Its center tip must be set to positive and its plug must fit the TAD-733'sDC 9V jack. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage theTAD-733or the adapter.

Always connect the AC adapter to the TAD-733before you connect it to AC power. When you finish, disconnect the adapter from AC power before you disconnect it from theTAD-733.

43-733.fmPage 10 Friday, September 17, 1999 8:57 AM

4.To charge the battery pack, place the handset on the base. The IN USE indicator flashes for 1 second and the CHARGE indicator automatically lights after 4 seconds.

IN USE

Indicator

CHARGE

Indicator

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

LOW BATT

Indicator

Notes:

You can place the handset on the base facedown or faceup without removing the belt clip. If you want to use the hanging hole on the back of the handset to place the handset on the wall-mountedbase faceup, remove the belt clip (see “Removing the Belt Clip” on Page 18).

If the CHARGE indicator does not light when you place the handset on the base, be sure the battery pack and AC adapter are correctly and securely connected.

Also, check the charging contacts on the handset and base. If the contacts are dirty or tarnished, clean them with a pencil eraser.

When you first use the phone after charging or recharging the battery pack, the phone might not work and you might hear 3 short beeps when you press TALK. If this happens, return the handset to the base for about 5 seconds. This resets the securityaccess-protectioncode.

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

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

If the battery pack becomes weak during a call, you hear 3 beeps and the LOW BATT indicator flashes. End the call as soon as conveniently possible, and recharge the battery pack before using the phone again.

10

43-733.fmPage 11 Friday, September 17, 1999 8:57 AM

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 for about a year. When the battery pack loses its ability to fully recharge, order a replacement battery pack from your local RadioShack store (see “Replacing the Battery Pack” on Page 28).

SETTING THE DIALING MODE AND RINGERS

Dialing Mode
