Installing the Phone

The phone may be connected to two 2-line (RJ14C) wall jacks or four single line (RJ11C) wall jacks to accomodate all four lines.
1. Choose an area near an electrical outlet and telephone wall jack. Your phone should be placed on

a level surface, such as a table top or desk.

2. Install 4 AAA-size alkaline batteries (not included) for back up power in the event of a power failure.

• Use a screwdriver to loosen and lift up the battery compartment door located on the

bottom of the phone.

• Insert the batteries as shown on the diagram inside the battery compartment.

• Snap the battery compartment door back into place and tighten the screw.

NOTE: If the low battery icon appears in the display, you need to replace the batteries. It is important that you replace

them as soon as possible to maintain unit operation when electrical power is off. As a precaution, you may want to write

down any stored information you do not want erased.

IMPORTANT: If you are not going to use the telephone for more than 30 days, remove the batteries because they can leak

and damage the unit.

3. Plug the AC power adaptor cord into an electrical outlet and the DC connector into the back of the base.

CAUTION: Use only the ATLINKS USA 5-2651 power adaptor that is compatible with this unit. Using other power adaptors may damage the unit.
