Equipment Approval Information

Your telephone equipment is approved for connection to the Public Switched 

Telephone Network and is in compliance with parts 15 and 68, FCC Rules and 

Regulations and the Technical Requirements for Telephone Terminal Equipment 

published by ACTA.
1  Notification to the Local Telephone Company
  On the bottom of this equipment is a label indicating, among other information, 

the US number and Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) for the equipment. You 

must, upon request, provide this information to your telephone company.

  The REN is useful in determining the number of devices you may connect to 

your telephone line and still have all of these devices ring when your telephone 

number is called. In most (but not all) areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices 

connected to one line should not exceed 5. To be certain of the number of 

devices you may connect to your line as determined by the REN, you should 

contact your local telephone company.

  A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and 

telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and 

requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone cord and modular 

plug is provided with this product. It is designed to be connected to a compatible 

modular jack that is also compliant. See installation instructions for details.
Notes  
•  This equipment may not be used on coin service provided by the telephone 

company.

•  Party lines are subject to state tariffs, and therefore, you may not be able to 

use your own telephone equipment if you are on a party line. Check with your 

local telephone company.

•  Notice must be given to the telephone company upon permanent 

disconnection of your telephone from your line.

•  If your home has specially wired alarm equipment connected to the telephone

2  Rights of the Telephone Company 
  Should your equipment cause trouble on your line which may harm the telephone 

network, the telephone company shall, where practicable, notify you that 

temporary discontinuance of service may be required. Where prior notice is not 

practicable and the circumstances warrant such action, the telephone company 

may temporarily discontinue service immediately. In case of such temporary 

discontinuance, the telephone company must: (1) promptly notify you of such 

temporary discontinuance; (2) afford you the opportunity to correct the situation; 

and (3) inform you of your right to bring a complaint to the Commission pursuant 

to procedures set forth in Subpart E of Part 68, FCC Rules and Regulations.

these changes are expected to affect the use or performance of your telephone 

equipment, the telephone company must give you adequate notice, in writing, to 

allow you to maintain uninterrupted service.

following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference; and (2) 

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may 

cause undesired operation.
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class 

b digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed 

to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential 

installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if 

not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful 

interference to radio communications. however, there is no guarantee that 

interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, 

which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is 

encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following 

measures:
•  Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna (that is, the antenna for radio or 

television that is “receiving” the interference).

•  Reorient or relocate and increase the separation between the 

telecommunications equipment and receiving antenna.

•  Connect the telecommunications equipment into an outlet on a circuit different 

from that to which the receiving antenna is connected.

If these measures do not eliminate the interference, please consult your dealer or an 

experienced radio/television technician for additional suggestions. Also, the Federal 

Communications Commission has prepared a helpful booklet, “how To Identify and 

Resolve Radio/TV Interference Problems.” This booklet is available from the U.S.

Handset and Base Layout

Installing the Phone

Connecting the Telephone Line

Choose the best location to install your telephone. Your telephone 

should be placed on a level surface, such as a desk or table top.
1.  Plug one end of the straight 

telephone line cord into the 

PhONE lINE jack on the base.

2.  Plug the other end into a wall 

jack.

3.  Plug one end of the coiled 

handset cord into the jack on 

the  handset.

4.  Plug the other end into the hANDSET jack on the back of the base.
5.  Place the handset on the base cradle.
6.  Set the RINGER and DISPlAY bRIGhTNESS switches on the back of 

the base to the desired settings.

7. Set the VOl switch on the side of the handset to the 

desired setting.

Connecting the Electrical Power

1. Plug one end of the power supply cord into the back of the base.
2. Plug the other end into an electrical outlet.

CAUTION: To reduce risk of personal injury, fire, or 

damage use only the 5-2769 power adaptor listed in 

the user’s guide. This power adaptor is intended to be 

correctly orientated in a vertical or floor mount position. 

 

“No Worry” Battery Backup
This telephone is equipped with a memory holding system 

powered by a customer-instal ed 9-volt alkaline battery 

(not included).
When electrical power is interrupted, or the electrical line is 

unplugged, the battery operates the clock to retain the time of day 

and alarm settings in memory. When the unit is running on battery 

power, the digital display does not light up; however, if wake time 

occurs during the power interruption, the alarm buzzer sounds 

(regardless of the type of alarm tone selected) if remaining battery 

power is adequate. Normal operation resumes after electrical power 

is restored.
Install the backup battery as follows:
1.  Remove the battery compartment cover 

located on the bottom of the base.

2.  Connect a fresh 9-volt alkaline battery 

(not included).  Interlock the large and 

small contacts on the battery clip and the 

battery. Once connected, place the battery 

inside the battery  compartment.

3.  Replace the battery compartment cover.

NOTE: Alkaline (NEDA 1604A) batteries are 

recommended. Carbon-zinc (NEDA 1604) batteries 

may be used but memory holding time will be 

substantially reduced. Memory holding time for a 

fresh alkaline battery is approximately 3 months (if 

Wake System is not activated), which should take 

care of short, nuisance-type AC power failures. 

To preserve battery life, the phone should remain 

plugged into an AC electrical outlet. As the battery 

gets older, its voltage drops and memory may be 

lost. Be sure to replace the battery periodically. A 

backup battery is not included with this telephone.
NOTE: If battery is not installed: 

a) All memory will be lost if the unit is unplugged for 

more than 60 seconds.

b) The clock will stop running during a power outage 

period but will start running when power resumes. 

The clock will blink to indicate that the time may not 

be correct.  
IMPORTANT: If storing this unit for more than 30 

days, remove the battery.
