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).
If you do not record a greeting message, a prerecorded greeting message is used.

1 Press the MENU button.

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

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.

4 Then press OFF.


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

Joe.

Nseed to reset message on answering machine


There are two models - The TRU8885 and the TRU8885-2 -
For the TRU8885 the manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<
The solution is on page 24 + 57 It starts on Pg 24 as...

Record Greeting allows you to record a personal outgoing message (greeting) which
the answering system automatically plays when you receive a call.

1) Enter the Answring Setup menu, and then the
Record Greeting sub-menu (see "Entering the
Menu" on page 16). To record greeting press
[STA RT] appears.

2) Press the START soft key. You will hear “Record Greeting.“ The message counter
displays 30 and then begins to count down.

3) Position yourself near the base microphone and record your greeting.

4) When you are finished recording, press the STOP soft key. Your greeting will
playback for confirmation.

Selecting Your Greeting (Base only)

Select Greeting allows you to choose between the two outgoing messages, a prerecorded
message or your own greeting.

1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the
Select Greeting submenu (see "Entering the
Menu” on page 16). P lay back greetin g
appears, and the current outgoing message is
played. LCD is an example if you recorded your greeting.

2) Once you have recorded a personal greeting, press the CHANGE soft key to
choose the greeting. The selected outgoing message is played. Each time you
press the CHANGE soft key, the phone switches the outgoing message between
the prerecorded and the personal outgoing message.

There is more on the PDF - Just ask if you need more

For the TRU8885-2 is essentially the same. The manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<

If we need to dig further, just ask! :) We are just a mouse click away!

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?
