Getting Started Installing Your Phone Charge the Battery 1. Unpack all handsets, battery packs, and battery covers. If you need to remove a cover, press in on the notch and slide the cover down and off. 2. Line up the battery connector with the jack inside the handset; the connector only fits one way. 3. Push the connector in until it clicks into place; tug gently on the wires to make sure the battery is securely connected. 4. Replace the battery cover and slide it into place. 5. Use an AC adapter to connect the power jack on the base to a regular indoor (120V AC) power outlet. Connect any chargers the same way. 6. Place a handset in the base with the display facing forward. If the display doesn’t light up, reseat the handset or connect the base to a different outlet. For 2 or more handsets, place each handset in a charger. ##Charge all handsets completely (about 15 hours) before using.
Connect the Telephone Cord
Use the telephone cord to connect the TEL LINE jack on the base to a standard telephone wall jack.
Test the Connection 1. Pick up the handset and press Talk/ Flash . The handset sounds a dial tone, and the display shows Talk. ––If you don't hear a dial tone or the display says Check Tel Line, check the connection between the base and the phone jack. 2. Make a quick test call. (Press End to hang up.) ––If you keep hearing a dial tone, change to pulse dialing. ––If there’s a lot of noise, check for interference (see page 19). 3. Test all handsets the same way. If you can't get a dial tone, move the handset closer to the base.
Changing to Pulse Dialing
Your phone uses tone dialing by default. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you need to change your phone’s dial mode. 1. Press Menu/select and choose Global Setup. 2. Select Dial Mode then Pulse. You’ll hear a confirmation tone. To send DTMF tones during a call (e.g., for an automated response system), press * to temporarily switch to tone dialing. When you hang up, the phone automatically returns to pulse dialing.
