power outlet, then wiping with a dry cloth.
Accumulated dust may cause an insulation
defect from moisture, etc. resulting in a fire.
L Unplug the product from power outlets if it

Note when setting up
Note for connections
L The AC adaptor must remain
connected at all times. (It is normal for
the adaptor to feel warm during use.)
L The AC adaptor should be connected
to a vertically oriented or floor-
mounted AC outlet. Do not connect
the AC adaptor to a ceiling-mounted
AC outlet, as the weight of the adaptor
may cause it to become disconnected.
During a power failure
The unit will not work during a power
failure. We recommend connecting a
corded-type telephone (without AC
adaptor) to the same telephone line or to
the same telephone line jack using a T-
adaptor. Your Panasonic sales shop can
offer you more information about
connection possibilities.
Note for battery installation
L Use the supplied rechargeable
batteries. For replacement, we
recommend using the Panasonic
rechargeable batteries noted on page
4, 7.
L Wipe the battery ends (S, T) with a
dry cloth.
L Avoid touching the battery ends (S,
T) or the unit contacts.
Note for battery charging
L It is normal for the handset to feel
warm during charging.
L Clean the charge contacts of the
handset and charger with a soft and
dry cloth once a month. Clean more
often if the unit is exposed to grease,
dust, or high humidity.

Baby monitor
This feature allows you to listen in on a
room where another handset is located,
allowing you to easily monitor from
different areas of the house or place.
The monitored handset (placed in a
baby’s room, for example) will
automatically call the monitoring
handset or the phone number stored
when it detects sound.
Important:
L You should perform a test run of the
baby monitor procedure to ensure that
the baby monitor feature is set
correctly. For example, test its
sensitivity. Check the connection if
you are diverting the baby monitor to
an outside line.
Note:

handsets must select the same base
unit in order to use the baby monitor
feature (page 37).
L The monitored handset cannot be
used with a Bluetooth headset.
L If the unit is connected to a PBX
system, you cannot set the baby
monitor.
L During the monitoring mode, battery
consumption is faster than usual. We
recommend leaving the monitored
handset on the charger.

Registering a unit
Operating additional units
Additional handsets
Up to 6 handsets can be registered to a
single base unit.
Important:
L The additional handset model
recommended for use with this unit is
noted on page 4. If another handset
model is used, certain operations may
not be available.
Additional base units
Handsets can be registered to up to 4
base units, allowing you to add
additional base units and extend the
area in which your handset(s) can be
used. If a handset moves out of range of
its base unit when “Auto” is selected on
base unit (page 37), it looks for another
base unit to make or receive calls. A
base unit and the handsets it
communicates with is called a “radio
cell”.
Note:
L Calls are disconnected when the
handset moves from one radio cell to
another.
Registering a handset to a
base unit
The supplied handset and base unit are
pre-registered. If for some reason the
handset is not registered to the base unit
(for example, _ is displayed even when
the handset is near the base unit), re-

Helpline Tel. No.: U.K. 0844 844 3898 Ireland 01289 8333
Using Caller ID service
Important:
L This unit is Caller ID compatible. To
use Caller ID features, you must
subscribe to a Caller ID service.
Contact your service
provider/telephone company for
details.
Caller ID features
When an outside call is being received,
the caller’s phone number is displayed.
Caller information for the last 50 callers
is logged in the caller list from the most
recent call to the oldest.
L If the unit cannot receive caller
information, the following is displayed:
– “Out of Area”: The caller dials
from an area which does not
provide a Caller ID service.
– “Private Caller”: The caller
requests not to send caller
information.
L If the unit is connected to a PBX
system, caller information may not be
properly received. Contact your PBX
supplier.
Missed calls
If a call is not answered, the unit treats it
as a missed call and y is displayed. This
lets you know if you should view the
caller list to see who called while you
were away.
Even if only one missed call in the caller
list is viewed (page 40), y disappears
from the display. When you receive
another new call, y is displayed again.
Note:
L Even when there are unviewed
missed calls, y disappears from the
standby display if the following
operation is performed by one of the
registered handsets:
– Being replaced on the charger.
– Pressing {ic}.
Phonebook name display
When caller information is received and
it matches a phone number stored in the
phonebook, the stored name in the
phonebook is displayed and logged in
the caller list.
Category ringer tone
This feature can help you identify who is
calling by using different ringer tones for
different categories of callers. When
adding an entry to the phonebook, you
can assign it to the desired category
(page 20). When a call is received from a
caller assigned to a category, the ringer
you selected for that category rings after
caller information is displayed.
If you select “Default Ringer”, the
unit uses the ringer tone you selected on
page 27 when calls from this category
are received. The default setting is
“Default Ringer”.
