Q: What if I want the amplifier on every time I use the phone?
A: Switch the Auto-Amplifier switch to the ON position on the bottom of the base.
Q: How do I set the phone so that the outgoing sound is not too loud for others?
A: Set the Auto-Amplifier switch to the OFF position on the bottom of the base. Press the amplify button to turn on the amplifier when needed.
Q: What if I wear T-coil hearing aids?
A: Turn on the T-coil in your hearing aids and talk normally.
Q: What if I don't install back-up batteries?
A: We strongly suggest that you do so; that way, your phone will be 100% operational even when there is a power outage. If not, you phone will not be operational in case of power outage.
Q: How long will the back-up battery work?
A: It will give you up to 4 hours of continuous talk time.
Q: Can I change the on-hold music?
A: The music is pleasant but it is set, and cannot be changed.
Q: Why is there static noise on the line?
A: If you have DSL service on your phone line, install a DSL filter on the phone jack where the phone is connected. DSL filters can be purchased at RadioShack, Best Buy, Walmart and other retail outlet stores with telephone products.
Q: Why do I need to put batteries in my phone?
A: Batteries are optional. They provide back up during a power outage situation. If there are no batteries, the phone will act like a standard phone without amplification during a power outage.
Q: Why is there no dial tone?
A: Please verify that both the phone cord and the handset cord are plugged in properly.
Q: I have a new HD phone, I plugged it and it gets electricity, but no dial tone.
A1: If it’s a business line with magic jack or digital, it won’t work. It needs to be analog.
A2: Check handset; blow into the mouth piece, if you get feedback, then the handset is ok. If not, swap out the phone line cord with another cord to see if it’s bad. If it still doesn’t work, make sure you are using an analog line.
Q: I hear a humming noise from the phone when it’s not in use, what is it?
A: If you have DSL, make sure you have a filter. If you have a filter, unplug the DSL line and see if that’s the issue. If not, the phone may just have a small humming noise that is generally only heard by someone with very good hearing.
Q: I’m getting feedback (loud squeal) when I'm on the phone.
A: Turn down the amplified volume 1 or 2 notches and keep the phone very close to your ear.
Q: I get a dial tone, but none of the features work on the phone (speaker, amplifier, one touch memory).
A: Make sure the AC adapter cord is plugged in the wall and on the back of the base.
Q: I can’t use the number pad for calling in my prescriptions.
A: Your phone is set on pulse. You need to change it to Tone on the side of the phone.
