I would start by testing the phone while you are standing next to it. Call yourself from your cell phone and see if your answering machine is actually picking up.

My guess is that somehow the voicemail service from your telephone company got activated and the phone never rings long enough for the answering machine to pick up.

The other possibility is that your answering machine got set to "announce only." You don't specify what exact model you have but on mine (which is a Vtech 5.8GHz model with multiple handsets) you turn the answering machine on by pressing the on button and then use the menu button to cycle through the choices. One of the choices is "set announce only." When you are on that choice press the change button. If it says off, then it is set correctly. If it says on, press the change button again to alter the setting from on to off.

I am having problem with leaving messages. Everytime someone try to leave msg..voicemail say your memory is full, please hangup..but there were no messages in there..I also turned the machine off to see if...


Deleting messages (memory may be full).

Verify you do not have old messages on the the system. After the system plays all new messages, press Play/Stop again or from the handset Select 2:Play.If you find messages, delete them during or after they play.

After you listen to your messages, the voice message icon turns off. If it doesn't or if you can not receive messages, you should try to reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Make sure the Record Time is not set to Announce Only.

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.

Erasing Messages

The unit will announce the remaining recording time after playback, if it is less than
5 minutes. New messages cannot be recorded when:
— “Memory full” is heard.
— “ ” is displayed on the base unit.
— ANSWER ON indicator flashes rapidly (only when the Answering System is on).

Erase some, or all, of the messages in a mailbox. We recommend you erase unnecessary messages after each playback.


Erasing a specific message
Press [ERASE] while the message you want to erase is being played.
• A short beep will sound and the unit will continue to play the next message.
Press [ ][4] while the message you want to erase is being played.
• A short beep will sound and the unit will continue to play the next message.

Erasing all messages in the mailbox
1. Press the soft key ( ).
2. Press the soft key ( , or ).
• If Mailbox 2 or 3 has a password, enter it (p. 51).
3. Press [ ][5] to erase all messages in the mailbox.
• A long beep will sound and “Mailbox (No.)” and “No messages” will be heard.
• To end remote operation, press [OFF].

I hope you rate this solution. Thank you and goodluck!
