IN CASE OF POWER FAILURE OR IF ANSWERING SYSTEM IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY
If a power failure occurs or the plug comes out of the wall, your unit
will shut down until the power is restored. One 9-volt battery must be
installed to retain your personal greeting message and incoming
messages during the power failure. Occasionally outside factors, such
as power surges, may adversely affect the unit. If the unit is not
operating properly or if the light continues to flash once power is
restored, try these steps:
1. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.
2. Remove the 9-volt battery. Replace with a fresh 9-volt battery.
3. Plug AC adapter back into power outlet.
4. When your unit is initially plugged in, it will check its memory for approximately 3 seconds.
Three deep tones will be heard if you attempt to record a greeting message before this
5. Record a new greeting message.
