WARNING  
Location  
Do not place your BT Diverse 6110  
base in the bathroom or other  
humid areas.  
You need to place your BT Diverse 6110 base station  
close enough to a mains power and telephone socket so  
that the cables will reach.  
Handset range  
The BT Diverse 6110 has a range  
of 300 metres outdoors when there  
is a clear line of sight between the  
base and the handset. When there  
is no clear line of sight between the  
base and the handset, e.g. base  
indoors and handset either indoors  
or outdoors, the range could be  
reduced to 50 metres. Thick stone  
walls can severely affect the range.  
Make sure it is at least 1 metre away from other  
electrical appliances to avoid interference.  
Your BT Diverse 6110 works by sending radio signals  
between the handset and base. The strength of the  
signal depends on where you site the base. Putting it as  
high as possible ensures the best signal.  
Signal strength  
The symbol on your handset  
screen indicates when you are in  
range. When you are out of range,  
it flashes and the screen displays  
OUTOFRANGEand there is a beep.  
Setting up  
1. Plug the mains power adaptor into the power socket on  
the underside of the base. Plug the other end into the  
mains socket. The Power/In Use and message indicator  
lights up.  
IMPORTANT  
Do not connect the telephone line  
until at least one of the handsets is  
fully charged.  
The base station must be plugged  
into the mains power at all times.

3. Charge the handset batteries for at least 16 hours by  
placing the handset on the base. The screen shows the  
battery icon filling up.  
Battery level  
The battery symbol shows the  
current level  
4. Connect the telephone line cord to the base and plug the  
other end into the wall socket.  
Battery performance  
To keep your batteries in the best  
condition, leave the handset off  
the base for a few hours at a time  
(after the initial 16 hour charge).  
Running the batteries right down  
at least once a week will help them  
last as long as possible.  
On a full charge, your BT Diverse  
6110 handset gives up to 12 hours  
talk time or up to 120 hours  
standby.  
Telephone line cord  
The charge capacity of  
rechargeable batteries will reduce  
with time as they wear out, giving  
the handset less talk/standby time.  
Eventually they will need to be  
replaced.  
Your BT Diverse 6110 is ready for use.  
Batteries and handset may  
become warm during charging.  
This is normal.
