interference is caused by external sources such as TV, refrigerator,
vacuum cleaner, fluorescent lighting, or electrical storm. Your unit is
NOT DEFECTIVE. If these noises continue and are too distracting,
please check around your office to see what appliances may be
causing the problem. In addition, we recommend that the Base not be
plugged into a circuit that also powers a major appliance because of

distracting transmissions on your phone, you may be receiving radio
signals from another cordless telephone or other source of
interference. If you cannot eliminate this type of interference, you
need to change to a different channel.
Finally, it should be noted that some cordless telephones operate at
frequencies that may cause interference to nearby TVs and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV or VCR. If
