Important Information (For Australia only) ^ 



instructions to customer 
Installation 

Attached to this apparatus is an approval label. This label is evidence that 
it is a "Permitted Attachment" which has been authorised to be connected 
to your telephone service. 

Conditions relating to connection and operation of this Pernnitted 
Attachment are contained in Telecommunications General By-Law 220 (5). 

You are authorised to install this Permitted Attachment yourself by 
plugging it into the line socket of any regular telephone. You may connect 
it in place of your existing telephone or to any spare telephone socket 
installed in your premises. 

To disconnect your existing telephone you must first remove its plug from 
the line socket. You can then insert the plug of your Permitted Attachment 
into the socket and use your equipment. 

If the plug of your existing telephone cannot be readily removed, you will 
have to remove the screw securing it. To do this proceed as follows: 

1 . Loosen screw "A" sufficiently to remove the socket cover. 
(See Fig. 1.) 

2. Remove screw "B" and withdraw the plug. (See Fig. 2.) 

3. Replace screw "B". (See Fig. 3.) Ensure that it screws completely into 
the socket recess. (If the screw is too long, increase the hole depth or 
replace the screw with one 5 mm shorter.) 

4. Replace socket cover and tighten screw "A". (See Fig. 4.)

83 



If you are satisfied with the operation of your telephone service after 
plugging in your Permitted Attachment, your installation is completed. 

You will be unable to connect this Permitted Attachment if your telephone 
service consists only of a wall phone or an old style telephone which is not 
connected by means of a modern plug and socket. In such cases a new 
socket will need to be installed. 

Should the Permitted Attachment not operate when plugged into a socket, 
it is either faulty or unsuitable for operation with your telephone service. It 
should be returned to the store where purchased or the Authorised 
Service Centre. 

Service difficulties 

If at any time a fault occurs on your telephone service carry out the 
following checks before you call for service: 

• Disconnect the Permitted Attachment and try using the service with the 

normal telephone. 

• If the telephone service then operates satisfactorily, the fault is in your 
Permitted Attachment. Leave the Permitted Attachment disconnected 
and report the fault to its supplier or agent to arrange for repair. 

• If when using the telephone the service is still faulty, report the fault to 
"Service Difficulties and Faults" for attention. 

You are required to keep this Permitted Attachment in good working order 
while it is connected to your telephone service. Its construction or internal 
circuit must not be modified in any way without permission. 

WARNING 

This cordless telephone system does not incorporate provision for secrecy 
of conversations. Appropriately tuned radio equipment and other cordless 
telephone systems in close proximity may be used by a third party to 
monitor and possibly interrupt conversations in progress when this system 
is on radio operation.
