The Person On The Other End Cannot Hear You
1. Too many phones or phone devices on the line may effect your phone’s
transmission. As a guideline, more than ve (5) phones or phone devices
may overload the phone line. Disconnect one (1) or two (2) devices to see
if that eliminates the problem. If not, contact your local phone company
for load guidelines.
2. You may not be speaking directly into the transmitter. Always speak
directly into the mouth piece in your normal tone of voice.

Unable to Access Automated Systems
Automated systems used by banks, long distance voice mail and other
applications require that a phone be set to “TONE” dialing. Check the switch
on the bottom of the phone labeled TONE/PULSE and set to TONE. This
will enable the phone to be compatible with these automated systems.
If the power goes out , or the AC Adapter is not properly connected to
the phone, the ampli
cation, extra loud ringer, and the lighted keypad will
not work. If you have backup batteries installed, ampli cation will still work,
but the phone will drain the backup batteries very quickly. This will cause the
need for the batteries to be changed frequently and the Low Battery indicator
light to constantly illuminate.
Do I Need to Install Batteries? Batteries are optional. They provide
backup in case of a power outage. They are recommended in areas of
frequent power outages. This phone uses four (4) alkaline batteries. When
installed and fully charged, the batteries maintain the high ampli cation for
