Choose how many times the line will
RINGS IS...” ring before the system answers a call.
• Set for 2 to 7 rings, or choose
Toll Saver 2/4 or Toll Saver 4/6.
• When set to Toll Saver 2/4, the system
answers after four rings when you have
no new messages and after two rings
when you do. Toll Saver 4/6 causes the
system to answer after six rings when
you have no new messages and after
four rings when you do.
• During setup, the Message Window will
display the number of rings (8 for Toll
Saver 2/4, or 9 for Toll Saver 4/6).

Panosonic answering machine not recording incoming messages maybe conflict w/verizon voicemail


The issue here may be the number of rings that are required to activate the answering machine. If it is the same or more than Verizon, then you need to change it if you can. If not then there is not reason to have both.

Set number of rings


If you have the Digital Answerer in White with Extended Recording Time TAD-3808, then slide the Ring Select switch on the right side of the unit to the desired number of rings. TS = toll saver and answers after 2 rings if there are new messages; , otherwise, it will answer after 4 rings.

All of the Radio Shack answering machne manuals can be accessed here: http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/ProductResults.asp?Name=Telephone_Answering_Devices&ID=002004 .

For the 3808, see http://support.radioshack.com/productinfo/DocumentResults.asp?sku_id=43-3808&Name=Telephone%20Answering%20Devices&Reuse=N for the manuals.

I hope this helps.

Phone is plugged in to a fax machine and the phone rings too many times before answering machine picks up so the fax machine takes over. How can I reduce the number of rings so that the answering machine...


Change the answer machine rings to answer number to less than the fax number of rings to answer or increase the number of rings to answer on the fax machine. Would need exact model number of phone system to give more detail on programming steps. Info should be in manuals of phone system and fax machine.

To many rings for the machine to pick up


Unfortunately this machine does not have the facility to change the number of rings before it answers. The following extract from the manual describes how the number of rings is controlled:

Toll Saver Facility
Your unit has a Toll Saver Facility. This means your unit will answer call on the 4th rings if there are no new messages, or on the 2nd ring if new messages have been record. Therefore when you are calling your unit remotely you will know by the 3rd ring if there are no new messages. So you can hang up saving the cost of the call.

You can download the manual from here:

Hangs up after 2 seconds into recording message


SETTING THE RINGS TO ANSWER
This setting allows you to select the number of rings before the answering system answers a call.

At idle status, hold down the volume "UP" button over two seconds to enter the ring times setting of answering. The answering system announces, "ring time two" (the default is 2).

To change the rings to answer, press and release the "PREVIOUS" button (<<) or the "NEXT" button (>>) and the answering system announces a number such as "2, 1, toll save, 9...” OR "2, 3, 4...", if you select the toll save and the digit LED light shows a “γ”, the answering system announces “toll save”.

After choosing a number, press the “PLAY/STOP” button one time to store the rings to answer, and the answering system confirms the setting and returns to the idle status.

NOTE: when the machine fails to operate properly, just unplug the power for 10 seconds, and redo the settings.

Phone rings many times with no answering message coming on and no messages recorded


I can't seem to get the security code entered.  It won't change.  None of the numbers will change when I try to set it up.
