If you have a problem getting connected with SV-1550, 23 Jan 2009
The instruction manual takes you as far as. If you get a flashing red yellow or red green light, this means the extension unit is locked but not registered to base unit. It's a pity it doesn't go on to tell you how to remedy this. I contacted the manufacturer thinking I had purchased a faulty product. To reset the SV-1550. Plug just the extension unit into the power outlet-the light will flash between red and yellow.
-Unplug as soon as you see the light on the extension coming on
-The red light on the extension will still be on for a second or two after unplugging
-Wait for a second,until the light goes off,then plug the unit back into the power outlet
-The red light comes on again, unplug immediately wait until the red light on the extender goes off (approximately 1 second)
-Plug back into power outlet again.
Please continue to repeat this procedure 5 times ( plug/unplug the extender). When plugging the unit back in for the 5th time the red light should be steady and the extender has been reset. Now you can proceed with the following procedure to get the SV-1550 to communicate with the base.
-Make sure the Base unit and the Extension unit are powered on (via a power outlet)
-Unplug any cords attached to the base unit ( phone wall socket cord and base unit adaptor,these can be connected again later.)
-Plug the extension into a power outlet near the base unit and switch the power on ( a double socket would be ideal for testing this).This will activate a red light on the extension unit.
-Plug one end of the supplied cables for the phone line into the Base unit and the other end into the extension unit. A red light will be activated before changing to yellow switch at "C", or green at "S". This can take up to one minute.
-Once the light changes on the extension unit, unplug the cable for the phone line between the Base unit and the extension unit
-Replug the phone cables you have unplugged. It does work perfectly with the Amstrad Sky+ Box.
Hope you find this helpful-Good luck.
