Appendix

Troubleshooting

I get noise, static, or a weak signal even when I’m near the telephone base.

If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line - DSL) through your telephone lines, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack. The filter prevents noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service provider for more information about DSL filters.

You may be able to improve the performance of your cordless phone by installing your new telephone base as far as possible from any other existing cordless telephone system that may already be installed.

Other electronic products can cause interference to your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away from the following electronic devices as possible: television sets, VCRs, or other cordless telephones.

Do not install this phone near a microwave oven or on the same electrical outlet. You may experience decreased performance while the microwave oven is operating.

If your phone is plugged in with a modem or a surge protector, plug the phone (or modem/surge protector) into a different location. If this doesn’t solve the problem, relocate your phone or modem farther apart from one another, or use a different surge protector.

Relocate your phone to a higher location. The phone may have better reception when installed in a high area.

If the other phones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).

17

Appendix

Troubleshooting

I experience poor sound quality when using the speakerphone.

For increased sound quality while using the speakerphone, place the handset on a flat surface with the dial pad facing up.

When using a speakerphone, controlling background noise in your environment is essential. While you are listening to your party, press DELETE/MUTE to temporarily turn your microphone off. When it is your turn to speak, remember to press DELETE/MUTE again to turn the microphone on.

Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade

in and out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off any audio devices near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting the person at the other end of the conversation while they are speaking. If background noise cannot be controlled, you should terminate speakerphone operation and return to normal handset mode.

I hear other calls while using my phone.

Disconnect the telephone base from the telephone jack, and plug in a different telephone. If you still hear other calls, the problem is probably in your wiring or local service. Call your telephone service provider.

My cordless handset does not ring when I receive a call.

Make sure that the ringer is not turned off. Refer to Ringer volume section in the manual provided with your TL91270/TL91370/TL92220/TL92270/TL92320/TL92370/ TL92420/TL92470 telephone.

Make sure the telephone line cord is plugged securely into the telephone base and the telephone jack. Make sure the power cord is securely plugged in.

18

Appendix

Troubleshooting

The cordless handset may be too far from the telephone base.

Charge the battery in the cordless handset for at least 16 hours. For optimum daily performance, return the cordless handset to the telephone base or charger when not in use.

You may have too many extension phones on your telephone line to allow all of them to ring simultaneously. Try unplugging some of the other phones.

The layout of your home or office might be limiting the operating range. Try moving the telephone base to another location, preferably to a higher location.

If the other phones in your home are having the same problem, the problem is in your wiring or local service. Contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).

Test a working phone at the phone jack. If another phone has the same problem, the problem is the phone jack. Contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).

Other electronic products can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from electronic devices such as wireless routers, or other cordless telephones.

Re-install the battery, and place the cordless handset in the telephone base. Wait for the cordless handset to re-establish its connection with the telephone base. Allow up to one minute for this to take place.

Your line cord might be malfunctioning. Try installing a new line cord.

My caller ID isn’t working.

Caller ID is a subscription service. You must subscribe to this service from your telephone service provider for this feature to work on your phone.

The caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.

Both your and your caller’s telephone service providers must use caller ID compatible equipment.

If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (digital subscriber line - DSL) through your telephone lines, you must install a DSL filter between the telephone line cord and the telephone wall jack. The filter prevents noise and caller ID problems caused by DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service provider for more information about DSL filters.

System does not receive caller ID when on a call.

Make sure you subscribe to caller ID with call waiting features provided by your telephone service provider. Caller ID features work only if both you and the caller are in areas

offering caller ID service, and if both telephone companies use compatible equipment.

Troubleshooting

I subscribe to a non-traditional telephone service that uses my computer to establish connections, and my telephone doesn’t work.

Make sure your computer is powered on.

Make sure your Internet connection is working properly.

Make sure that the software is installed and running for your non-traditional telephone service.

Make sure to plug your USB telephone adapter into a dedicated USB port on your computer. Do not plug into a multiple port USB hub (USB splitter) that is not powered.

In a few rare instances, the USB port on your computer may not have enough power. In these instances, try using a USB hub with its own external power supply.

If you are using a firewall, it may prevent access to your nontraditional telephone service provider. Contact your service provider for more information.

Common cure for electronic equipment:

If the telephone is not responding normally, try resetting the telephone. Do the following in the order listed:

1.Disconnect the power to the telephone base.

2.Disconnect the cordless handset battery, and spare battery, if applicable.

3.Wait a few minutes.

4.Connect power to the telephone base.

Appendix

Maintenance

Taking care of your telephone

Your cordless telephone contains sophisticated electronic parts, so it must be treated with care.

Avoid rough treatment.

Place the handset down gently.

Save the original packing materials to protect your telephone if you ever need to ship it.

Avoid water

Your telephone can be damaged if it gets wet. Do not use the handset in the rain, or handle it with wet hands. Do not install the telephone base near a sink, bathtub or shower.

Electrical storms

Electrical storms can sometimes cause power surges harmful to electronic equipment. For your own safety, take caution when using electric appliances during storms.

Cleaning your telephone

Your telephone has a durable plastic casing that should retain its luster for many years. Clean it only with a soft cloth slightly dampened with water or a mild soap.

Do not use excess water or cleaning solvents of any kind.

Remember that electrical appliances can cause serious injury if used when you are wet or standing in water. If the telephone base should fall into water, DO NOT RETRIEVE IT UNTIL YOU UNPLUG THE POWER CORD AND

TELEPHONE LINE CORDS FROM THE WALL. Then pull the telephone out by the unplugged cords.

Important safety information

Especially about corded telephones

Privacy: The same features that make a cordless telephone convenient create some limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted between the telephone base and the handset by radio waves, so there is a possibility that your cordless telephone conversations could be intercepted by radio receiving equipment within range of the cordless handset. For this reason, you should not think

of cordless telephone conversations as being as private as those on corded telephones.

Electrical power: The telephone base of this cordless telephone must be connected to a working electrical outlet which is not controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot be made from the handset if the telephone base is unplugged, switched off or if the electrical power is interrupted.

Potential TV interference: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that may cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, do not place the telephone base of the cordless telephone near or on top of a TV or VCR. If interference is experienced, moving the cordless telephone farther away from the TV or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the interference.

Rechargeable batteries: This product contains nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries. Exercise care in handling batteries in order not to create a short circuit with conductive material such as rings, bracelets, and keys. The battery or conductor may overheat and cause harm. Observe proper polarity between the battery and the battery charger.

Nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries: Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner. Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries of this type, if burned or punctured, they could release caustic material which could cause injury.

The RBRC™ Seal means that the manufacturer is voluntarily participating in an industry program to collect and recycle nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries when taken out of service within the United States. These batteries may be taken to a participating local retailer of replacement batteries or recycling center. Or you may call 1 (800) 8- BATTERY for locations accepting spent Ni-MH batteries.

Important safety information

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac pacemakers

Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital cordless telephones): Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR), an independent research entity, led a multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference between portable wireless telephones and implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR recommends to physicians that:

Pacemaker patients

Should keep wireless telephones at least six inches from the pacemaker.

Should NOT place wireless telephones directly over the pacemaker, such as in a breast pocket, when it is turned ON.

Should use the wireless telephone at the ear opposite the pacemaker.

WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to bystanders with pacemakers from other persons using wireless telephones.

Especially about telephone answering systems

Two-way recording: This unit does not sound warning beeps to inform the other party that the call is being recorded. To ensure that you are in compliance

with any federal or state regulations regarding recording a telephone call, you should start the recording process and then inform the other party that you are recording the conversation.
