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 Permitted
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.)
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.
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.
