Wharfedale IN120-1 Cordless Telephone Manual User Instructions

Wharfedale IN120-1 Cordless Telephone and answer machine

I wrote this short basic guide explaining the basic functions of the Wharfedale IN120-1 Cordless Telephone after failing to find any decent instructions online and figuring it out for myself. If you’re looking for another specific manual let me know here.

To use the phone,  all of the features are available via the on-screen menu on the handset.  You simply enter the menu (by pressing the [>/OK] button) and then scroll up and down through the menu selecting the item you wish to change.

Use the [VOL+] and [VOL-] button to scroll up and down through the options and [>OK] to select.

It’s a little awkward to use, but with a bit of practice it makes sense.

Press the [>/OK] button to access the menu:

Setting up the Answering Machine on the Base Station

To record a new outgoing greeting message

  • On the base unit press MENU twice.
  • Ar” will be displayed and a voice will say “Announcement One”.
  • Quickly press the MEMO key and hold it down.   A voice will say “Please speak after the tone”
  • Speak your greeting message into the base unit.
  • Release the MEMO key. Your new message should be repeated back to you.
To delete the outgoing greeting message

Do the same as recording a message but release the MEMO key immediately or press the play button at and press DEL while the message is playing. It will then revert back to the standard message.

If you repeatedly press the MENU key, the other options on the menu are

AC – Remote access code.
  • Use the Previous and Next msg buttons to change the code number, using MENU for each subsequent digit.
Ao – Announce Only.
  • Use the Previous and Next msg buttons to toggle this ON and OFF.
AL – Message Alert.
  • Use the Previous and Next msg buttons to toggle this ON and OFF.
nr – Ring Delay.
  • Use the Previous and Next msg buttons to set this to a value between and 6.
  • There is also an option in here called TS – Toll Saver which will answer sooner if there are messages already waiting on the machine (this allows the owner to hang up and not incur phone charges if checking for messages remotely)

Other stuff

IF CL is flashing on the Base Station then this is indicating that the TIME/DATE needs setting.  It does this when you first turn the phone on or if you need to change the batteries in the handset.

So, following the above instructions you need to press this key pattern to get to the correct part of the menu to set the time:

Press [>/OK].  Press [VOL-] twice.  Press  [>/OK] again
