VTech CL84100 Cordless Telephone User Manual

I get noise, static, or weak signals even when I’m near the
telephone base.
If you subscribe to high-speed Internet service (DSL - digital
subscriber line) through your telephone lines, you must install a
DSL filter between the telephone base and the telephone wall
jack. The filter prevents noise and caller ID problems as a result
of DSL interference. Please contact your DSL service provider for
more information about DSL filters.
You may be able to improve the performance of your cordless
phone by installing your new telephone base as far as possible
from any other existing cordless telephone system that may
already be installed.
Other electronic products can cause interference to your
cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away from the
following electronic devices as possible: television sets, VCRs, or
other cordless telephones.
Do not install this phone near a microwave oven or on the same
electrical outlet. You might experience decreased performance
while the microwave oven is operating.
If you plug your phone in with a modem or a surge protector,
plug the phone (or modem/surge protector) into a different
location. If this does not solve the problem, relocate your phone
or modem farther apart from one another, or use a different
surge protector.
Move your phone to a higher location. The phone might have
better reception in a high area.
If the other phones in your home are having the same problem,
contact your telephone service provider (charges may apply).
I experience poor sound quality when using the speakerphone.
For increased sound quality while using the speakerphone, place
the handset on a flat surface with the dial pad facing up.
