RCA 25205 2-line corded pnone answering machine won't answer

I have recorded a personal announcement as Outgoing Message, and am only using 1 of the 2 lines. Have tried every possible combination of setup - changing phone cord input from "Line 1+2" to "Line 2", and configuring both lines to use the Personal Outgoing Announcement. I have it set to Answer Line 1 - ON (but have tried either line 1 -2-or both on). The unit still wants to use the default message instead of my personal msg. When I try to set it to personal, I press Sel/Save and it just shows "Empty". I know the msg. recorded OK, because I can play it back. I just want it to play for my callers - on either line, I don't care which! Please advise. Thanks!

    It's the same. You cannot record a personal outgoing message even when following the instructions to the T.

  • Melissa Tenn Oct 21, 2008

    Exact same issues here. Neither line will accept my personal message. I have followed instructions very closely.

  • althomas_07 Oct 21, 2008

    I'm having the same problem.... been trying forever and nothing works

  • Joe Danger Dec 02, 2008

    Same deal. I recorded my personal greeting on both line I and 2, but it

    reverts to the default OGA as soon as I exit. I've tried everything. The

    whole reason for buying this model was to have a reliable answering

    machine for my business with my own outgoing announcement.

    I will tell you this is the second one of these phones that I have had the first one I thought was defective. As mine would actually take the message and play it for months hundreds of times and then just one day it would not work, playback, outgoing whatever. I had 19 messages that I cannot access at all!!!! I returned this 1st one, the 2nd worked for a while and then did the same thing! I think they are JUNK.

HAVE GE PHONES MODEL NO. 25942J-3C, SERIAL NO. 90557643. HAVE LOST MY USER MANUAL AND NEED TO CHANGE MY ANSWERING MACHINE MESSAGE AND CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO DO SO. HELP.


Here is the answer from the User Guide found on the manufacturers website. for more help go to http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25942EE1_IB.pdf

Recording the Outgoing Announcement

For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone,

and eliminate as much background noise as possible.

1. Make sure the answering system is On2. Press and hold the announce button on the base.

3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.

4. Release the button when you finish your announcement.

NOTE: If you choose not to record an outgoing announcement, a default

announcement plays instead. To return to the default announcement after

you have recorded your own outgoing announcement, press the announce

button and release it when you hear the beep.

Sample Outgoing Announcement

"Hi, this is (use your name here), I can't answer the phone right now, so

please leave your name, number and a brief message after the tone, and
I'll get back to you. Th anks.

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message


Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1580-3om.pdf

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

I wish to create my own message on the answer-phone.


Hi,

The easiest way to gain access into an answering machine is to use it's preset access code. This is the access code set at default by the vendor on the given device. The best thing about this is that most users don't bother to change the access code to their device, if they even know that they have such a feature. Even worse yet, some of the manuals given for the device by it's vendor even tells the user that changing the access code is optional, not necessary. So of course since most people only do what they feel is necessary, these access codes are many times if not usually set at default. So what I'm going to do for you now is list the different popular vendors out there, and include their preset access codes, how to use them, and controls to use after gaining access. Keep in mind that if there is no model number beside the vendor, then that means that the information given works on most of their models. Likewise of course if there is a model identification beside the vendor name (placed in parenthesis) then that of course means that the information provided is model dependant. So let's begin, shall we?

1) AT&T - preset access code is 10 - when the answering machine picks up punch in the access code
7 - play messages
6 - play new messages
# - stop/pause
2 - repeat message
5 - skip message
4* - record announcement (push # to end recording)
41 - play announcement
* - record memo
33 - delete all messages
3 - delete selected
0 - turn system on
88 - turn system off
99 - change remote code

2) BellSouth - preset access code is 555, Mailbox 1: 555, 2: 666, 3: 777, 4: 888 - when the machine picks up hit * and then punch in the access code
0 - help (use this to get the commands available)

3) Freestyle - preset access code is 000 - when the machine picks up push in the D button and then punch in the access code
2 - play all messages
3 - play new messages
4 - skip back during messages
5 - delete during messages
6 - skip forward during messages
8 - play outgoing message
9 - record new outgoing message
0 - set answering machine on/off
1 - hear main menu

4) Vtech (VT650) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during announcement
#4 - repeat message
#5 - pause message
#6 - skip to next message
#7 - delete message
#8 - skip backwards
#9 - stop/exit any function
*8 - room monitor

5) Vtech (VT2650/VT2468) - preset access code is 50 - enter access code during announcement
#4 - repeat message
#6 - skips message
#5 - stops
#9 - delete message
#7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

6) Vtech (HK5886) - preset access code is 48 - enter access code during announcement
#1,2,3 - play new or old messages
#4 - repeat message
#6 - skip message
#5 - stop
#9 - delete message
#7 - review announcement (after beep press 7 to record an announcement and use #5 to stop)

7) Olympia (OL2410) - preset access code is 0000 - enter access code during accouncement
1,2,3 - select and play messages
4 - repeat message
44 - ignore message
6 - play next message
7 - delete current message
8 - record memo
9 - record announce (5 to stop)
0 - toggle answer on/off
* - play help menu

8) Doro - preset access code is 321 - enter access code right after outgoing message has played (or during)
1 - repeat/skip to previous message
2 - play/pause message
3 - skip to next message
4 - play current outgoing message
5 - record new outgoing message
6 - stop
7 - erase current message
8 - switch off answering machine
9 - switch on answering machine/select outgoing message
0 - (after playback) erases all messages
# - end playback
## - end call

9) Virgin Pulse cordless phone - preset access code is 123 - enter access code during outgoing message
1 - review current message
2 - skip to next message
3 - erase the current message
4 - play all or new messages
7 - repeat voice menu
0 - turn on/off TAD

10) Panasonic - preset access code is 11 or 1111 - enter access code during outgoing message
4 - new message playback
5 - all message playback
1 - repeat
2 - skip
9 - stop
7 - record new announcement (use 9 to end recording)

There are also a few random vendors that don't automatically preset an access code on the machine, forcing it's user to set one up him/herself. This is a small step forward as far as security is concerned, but every vendor I saw that did this still used a mere 2-digit access code. To test and see if your target has this type of setup press # when the machine start, and then press 0. If the machine returns to the annoucement then you know this is the kind of machine it is. Of course, in reality, this isn't all that bad of a scheme since you have 100 different combinations available for the access code. However, most users simply set these access codes as 11, 22, 69, etc. So yeah, just try it out. If it disconnects you after so many tries, call back from another payphone (which you should be using in this case).

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Model# 27909EE1-A the automatic answering system is not working


Hi,
Here you are...

Recording the Outgoing Announcement
For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone, and eliminate as much background noise as possible.
1. Make sure the answering system is ON.
2. Press and hold the announce button on the base until the speaker announces "RECORD ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER TONE".
3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.
4. Release the announce button when you finish your announcement.
NOTE: If you choose not to record an outgoing announcement, a default announcement plays instead. To return to the default announcement after you have recorded your own outgoing announcement, press the announce button and release it when you hear the beep. Or, press the delete button while the announcement is reviewing.
NOTE: The maximum duration allowed for outgoing message is 2 minutes.

Also, here's a link for your manual..

RCA 25205 wont answer correctly


Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

RCA 25205 Visys will not record message


Called the company. There is a misprint in the instructions.

In the section titled "Out-Going Announcement RECORD" on last step it says Press Exit to stop recording. It should have said Press Sel/Save.

I did this and it worked.

Repeat for Line 2 if you are doing both lines.

Next thing is to make sure you go right to the section titled "Configure Out-Going Announcement" and select the right type of message you want callers to hear for each line.

Worked like a charm and took 3 seconds to get 2 different personal messages on the machine.

Won't record messages anymore


Record Your Announcement

You must record your announcements (A, b,C and RO) one at a time.

1 Select the announcement you wish to record.

2 Press and hold "ANNC/SKIP". When the system beeps, speak toward the microphone normally, from about nine inches away.

3 To stop recording, release "ANNC/SKIP". The system automatically plays back your announcement.

To review your announcement, press and release "ANNC/SKIP".

To erase your announcement and return to the pre-recorded announcement press "DELETE" while your announcement is playing.
