Detailed Instructions

Hardware Installation

Please refer to Figure 1 for these steps:
 
Step 1: If you have external computer speakers, turn their volume all the way down using the volume control knob on the speaker.

Step 2: Unfold the cable supplied with the handset and plug the modular plug into the base of the handset.

Step 3: If you are not already using your sound card output for a device such as external speakers, proceed to Step 4. If you already have a device plugged into the output of your sound card, note which jack the device is plugged into and then unplug the device. The speaker plug of the handset cable will connect to this jack.

Step 4: Plug the speaker plug of the handset cable into the headphone/speaker output jack of your PC sound card. This output jack often can be identified by a marking such as a headphone or speaker icon.

Step 5: Plug the red microphone plug of the handset cable into the mic input jack of your PC sound card. The sound card microphone input usually can be identified by a marking such as a microphone icon, by a red color, or by the letters "Mic".

Step 6: If you have computer speakers, plug them into the stereo output jack of the cable. This jack is provided so that there is no need to swap cables to change between the speakers and the handset.

You now are ready to adjust your Windows settings for your handset. Please proceed to Windows Adjustments and Step 7.

Windows Adjustments

Step 7: Double click on the speaker icon in the Windows system tray at the bottom of your screen. A box titled "Master Out" will pop up on your screen. Look for the columns labeled "Master Out" and "Mic". If the "Mic" column is not present, click on Options in the menu of the Master Out window, then on Properties. Scroll down to "Mic" and click on the box next to it to select it. Click "OK" and the "Mic" column now will appear in the controls. Adjust the microphone level to a low level and the master output level to a moderate level. Uncheck the "mute" box in the microphone control section.

Checking Your Handset Operation

Step 8: Check the handset operation by speaking into it and listening to your voice in the receiver. Beginning with the Windows microphone volume set low and the master output set to a moderate level, gradually increase the microphone level until you can hear your voice as you speak. Once the microphone level is properly adjusted, you may wish to mute the microphone in the "Master Out" control panel so you don't hear your own voice in the receiver during a call.
