Genuine Toshiba owner's manual. Couldn't really ask for more. And written in understandable English in contrast to a few recent experiences I have had with manuals for other equipment other than Toshiba but made in China and written in "Chinglish"!

The location of your base station can have an effect on the range and performance of your SE630 (see TIP below).
Connecting the Base Station
1. 2. Place the base station in a central location near the telephone line socket and electricity sockets. Connect the line cord and the power cable to the proper connector at the back of the base station. 1. B A 2.
Connect the power supply A Connect the line cord to the line socket B
Connect the other end of the line cord to the telephone line socket and the other end of the power cable to the electricity socket. The line adaptor may not be attached to the line cord. In this case, you have to connect the line adaptor to the line cord first before plugging the line cord to the line socket. TIP Avoid placing the base station too close to large metal objects such as filing cabinets, radiators or electrical appliances. This can impair the range and sound quality. Buildings with thick internal and external walls may impair transmission of signals to and from the base. WARNING The base station does not have an ON/OFF switch. Power is applied when the power adaptor is plugged into the unit and connected to the electricity socket. The only way to power down the unit is to unplug the power adaptor from the electricity socket. Therefore, ensure that the electricity socket is easily accessible. The power adaptor and telephone line cord have to be connected correctly, as incorrect connection could damage the unit. Always use the telephone line cord supplied with the unit. Otherwise, you may not get a dial tone.
