FEATURES

Your RadioShack System 933 79-Memory Caller ID with Call Waiting, Illuminator Backlight and Dial Back is the latest in telephone technology. The system displays 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. (The date and time are set with your first incoming Caller ID call.)

The System 933 stores and displays up to 79 multiple (name and number) Caller ID records, and includes these features:

Easy Installation — the system easily connects to your telephone line so you can quickly begin using it.

Bright Illuminator Backlight — the display lights when you press any key, making it easy to view and change information even in a dimly lit area.

Call Summary — displays the number of new calls, total number of calls you received, the phone number, date and time you received the calls and the caller’s name.

Note: Check with your local phone company regarding name service availability.

New Call Indicator — flashes when you have at least one new call you have not reviewed.

VIP Call List — lets you save up to 20 important call records so they will not be deleted when you delete other calls from the system’s memory.

3

43-933.fm Page 4 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Message Waiting — the system lets you know when you have a voice mail message waiting (if you subscribe to the message waiting service from your local phone company).

Record Scrolling — lets you easily look through all call records in Caller ID memory.

Trilingual Operation — lets you set the system to display messages in English, French, or Spanish.

Liquid Crystal Display — makes it easy to see caller information and the current time and date.

Contrast Control — lets you adjust the display contrast for the best readability.

Time and Date Display — displays the current time and date as provided to Caller ID service subscribers by your local telephone company.

Mounting Options — you can place the system on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on a wall.

Call Waiting — lets you know who is calling when you are talking on the phone.

Dial Back — lets you redial a telephone number in the Caller ID call record memory.

43-933.fm Page 5 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Note: Your system requires four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect its memory during a power outage.

This system has been tested and found to comply with all applicable ETL and FCC standards.

We recommend you record the system’s serial number here. The number is on the system’s bottom panel.

Serial Number: _________________________

5

43-933.fm Page 6 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Important Information:

To use this system, 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

Your system displays the caller’s name only if that option is available in your area.

The actual number of Caller ID records your system will store depends on the amount of Caller ID information sent by the phone company.

6

43-933.fm Page 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

FCC INFORMATION

We have designed your system to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each system (and each device, such as a telephone or answering machine) that you connect to the telephone line draws power from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the bottom of the system.

If you use more than one telephone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the total is more than five, your telephone might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the line.

Your system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are on the bottom of the system.

Note: You must not connect your system to:

Coin-operated systems

Party-line systems

Most electronic key telephone systems

In the unlikely event that your system causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily disconnect 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.

7

43-933.fm Page 8 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Also, the phone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this system. The telephone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.

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 TV or radio’s 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 continues.

PREPARATION

INSTALLING BATTERIES

You need four AAA batteries (not supplied) to protect the system’s memory during a power failure. For the longest operation and best performance, we recommend alkaline batteries, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-558.

Cautions:

Always use fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

Do not mix old and new batteries, different types of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable), or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.

Follow these steps to install batteries.

Notes:

When you replace the batteries, do not press any buttons on the system after you remove the old batteries. Doing so could erase all stored information.

10

43-933.fm Page 11 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

When replacing the batteries, have fresh ones on hand before you begin. If you do not install the new batteries within about 2 minutes after removing the old ones, you will lose all the information stored in the system.

1.Make sure the system is unplugged from the telephone line and AC power.

2.If you are replacing the batteries, unplug both modular line cords from the back of the system.

3.Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw in the battery compartment cover.

4.Slide the battery compartment

 

cover in the direction of the

(illus)

 

arrow, then lift open the cover.

 

 

Caution: The battery compart-

 

 

ment cover is attached to the

 

 

system. Do not try to remove it

 

 

completely.

 

5.

Put four fresh AAA batteries

 

 

into the compartment as indi-

(illus)

 

cated by the polarity symbols

 

(+ and –) marked inside.

 

6.

Close the cover and secure it

 

 

with the screw. If you are

 

 

replacing the batteries, recon-

 

nect the phone line, AC adapter, and the phone.

11

43-933.fm Page 12 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

When BATT appears or the display dims, replace the batteries.

Cautions:

Always remove old or weak batteries. Batteries can leak chemicals that can damage your system.

Dispose of dead batteries promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn them.

CONNECTING THE AC ADAPTER

(illus)

To power the system, plug the adapter’s barrel plug into the 9V DC 200mA jack on the back of the system. Then connect the other end of the adapter to a standard AC outlet.

Caution: The supplied adapter was designed specifically for your system. Use only the supplied adapter.

12

43-933.fm Page 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

CONNECTING THE SYSTEM

The System 933 connects to any modular phone jack and your phone. You can also connect it to an answering machine.

Connecting to a Single-Line Phone

(illus)

13

43-933.fm Page 14 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Connecting to a Two-Line Phone

To record information about calls received on a two-line phone, you can connect two System 933s using a triplex adapter such as Cat. No. 279-402 (not supplied). Each system only records information about calls received on the line to which it is connected.

Follow these steps to connect two System 933s to a two-line phone.

(illus)

1.Disconnect the telephone line cord from the modular phone jack (on the wall) and plug it into L1 + L2 on the triplex adapter.

2.Plug the triplex adapter into the modular phone jack.

3.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the TO LINE jack on one of the systems.

4.Plug the other end of the cord into either L1 or L2 on the triplex adapter.

5.Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to connect another system to the remaining open jack (L1 or L2) on the triplex adapter.

14

43-933.fm Page 15 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Connecting to an Answering Machine

(illus)

1.Plug a telephone line cord into the modular jack and plug it into the system’s TO LINE jack.

2.Plug one end of the supplied line cord into the system’s TO PHONE jack and plug the cord’s other end into the answering machine’s jack.

3.Plug a third telephone line cord into the answering machine and the phone.

4.Set your answering machine to answer after two or more

rings. This gives the System 933 time to record the call information that the phone company sends between the first and second rings.

MOUNTING THE SYSTEM

You can place the system directly on a desk, shelf, or table by itself or attach the supplied mounting bracket if you want the system to sit up at an angle. Or, you can use the bracket to mount the system on a wall.

OPERATION

RECEIVING AND STORING CALLS

Caller ID is a service provided by your telephone company. When you subscribe to this service, the telephone company sends the caller’s telephone number (and name, if available) and the call’s date and time between the first and second ring. The system receives and displays this information for each call and updates the display with the current date and time. Your system saves up to 79 call records, then replaces the oldest call record with each new one.

During an incoming call, the red new call indicator flashes, the display lights, and NEW and the TOTAL number of calls appear.

RECEIVING CALL WAITING CALLS

When you are talking on the phone and you hear the Call Waiting beeps, you can look at the display to see who is calling. To talk with that person, press the FLASH button on your telephone set. When you want to return to your original caller, press the FLASH button again.

Note: You must call your local phone company to subscribe to Caller ID with Call Waiting services.

20

43-933.fm Page 21 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

REVIEWING CALL RECORDS

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Your RadioShack System 933 79-Memory Caller ID with Call Waiting, Illuminator Backlight and Dial Back is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for your system so you can enjoy it for years.

Keep the system dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.

Use and store the system only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices and distort or melt plastic parts.

Keep the system away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.

Handle the system gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the system to work improperly.

Wipe the system with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the system.

31

43-933.fm Page 32 Monday, August 16, 1999 2:59 PM

Modifying or tampering with the system’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your system’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your system is not performing as it should, take it to your local RadioShack store for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the telephone lines, the phone company can ask you to disconnect your system until you have resolved the problem.

LIGHTNING

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

Lightning damage is not common. However, if you live in an area that has severe electrical storms, we suggest you unplug your system during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.
