Contact with liquid

If the handset has come into contact with liquid:
1. Switch off the handset and remove the bat-
tery pack immediately.
2. Allow the liquid to drain from the handset.
3. Pat all parts dry, then place the handset with
the battery compartment open and the keypad
facing down in a dry, warm place for at least
72 hours (not in a microwave, oven etc.).
4. Do not switch on the handset again until it is
completely dry.
When it has fully dried out, you will normally be
able to use it again.
