How do i record a greeting message?


First of all, here is the main ONLINE SUPPORT page for your model:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Phones-Fax/Telephones/Expandable-Systems/model.KX-TG1033S


And here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:

http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTG1032.pdf


To view the Support Page or the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

See page 26 of the manual for detailed instructions on how to operate the answering system on your phone.

Basically that section of the manual reads as follows:

Greeting message

When the unit answers a call, callersare greeted by a greeting message.
You can record your own greeting message or use a prerecorded greeting message.

Recording your greeting message.

You can record your own greeting message (max. 2 minutes and 30 seconds).

3 Scroll to RECORD GREETING then press OK.

4 After the handset beeps, speak clearly about 20 cm (8 inches) away from the microphone.

5 To stop recording, press the OK button.

6 Then press the OFF button.


Using a prerecorded greeting message.

If you erase or do not record your own greeting message, the unit plays a prerecorded greeting message for callers and ask them to leave messages.


Playing back the greeting message.

1 Press the MENU button.

2 Scroll to ANSWERING DEVICE using the up and down arrow keys and then press OK.

3 Scroll to PLAY GREETING then press OK.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck and take care.

I want to change the nombers of the rings to get start the answering machin


These are the instructions from the manual, which I found here:

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/GE/21028GE3-A-_E


RING SELECT (FOR ANSWERING MACHINE)

This feature lets you select the number of times you want to phone to ring
before the answering system answers a call.

1. Make sure your phone is OFF (not in talk mode).
2. Press the MUTE/PROG button to go to the main menu.
3. Press CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to HANDSET SETUP.
4. Press MUTE/PROG button to confirm.
5. Press the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the RING SELECT menu.
6. Press MUTE/PROG button to enter the menu. RING SELECT 3 4 5 6 TS shows in the display.
7. Use the CID/VOL (up or down) button to scroll to the your selection. The default setting is 5.
8. Press the MUTE/PROG button to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone and the new setting shows in the display.

NOTE: If you select Toll Saver (TS) the unit answers after the 3rd ring if there

messages. This allows user to access their answerer from another location and
then hang up after 4 rings to save long distance charges.

We have a uniden cordless phone with answer machine. we need to retrieve our messages while away how do we call our answer machine to hear messages?


Hello,
When you configured your telephone you must have come across the Remote Access option, in which you chose a secret remote access code or accepted the one by default. If you don't remember that then you should reconfigure it and choose a secret code different from the factory default.
While you are at it configure the Toll Saver option too. (more about that later)

When you are away you dial your home number and when you telephone invites you to leave amessage, enter your Remote Access code. You will be read various options, among which there is the Hear New Messages option (if there are new messages). After hearing your messages you hang up. and you will be charged by you telco.

With Toll saver On, you telephone answers after 2 rings, if there are new messages, and after 4 rings if there are NO new messages. If your telephone does not answer after the second ring (if you hear the 3rd ring) that means you have no new messages, and you can hang up without being charged by your telco.

Hope it helps.
Rate the solution.

Handset reset / re-registration problem Motorola E51 MD7161-3 5.8 GHz Quad Cordless Phone (base unit with 3 handsets) no longer detecting handsets. The handsets suddenly stopped working and continuously displayed "SEARCHING" and/or "CHARGING". Attempts to reset and de-register / re-register as suggested by Motorola's Online Tech Support barely succeeded only for a while but ultimately failed. De-registration resulted in the handsets all displaying "ENTER BASE ID" continuously despite repeated entry of the correct Base ID. The problem seems to be in the Base unit's recognition circuitry because the message answering system still works fine, handsets are lit up o.k., keypads work normally, etc. In fact, one of the handsets was detected and worked for a while after persistently entering the base ID within a 2-day period. Then another handset was detected and worked briefly after another 2 days of persistent entry of the base ID. However, once the AC power and handset batteries were removed in an attempt to relocate the system to see if that would help then all handsets just display "ENTER BASE ID" continuously. The message answering system still works as usual without any problems, though. I really would like to get this system working again because it's got just the features I need. However, if all else fails, then I am looking at online reviews of the new Panasonic DECT 6.0 KX-TG9332 or KX-TG8232B and will consider one as a replacement. Can you offer any new solution for the Motorola E51 MD7161-3 problem? If none, have you reviewed the new Panasonic DECT 6.0 KX-TG9332 or KX-TG8232B yet and would you recommend either one?
