Somehow the answering machine was clicked off, but the announcement was on. Therefore I could not receive messages, but my recording was still on as if I was receiving incoming messages. I just played with the various on/off switches till it worked. For me, just plain luck.

Answering system doesn't work.


Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.

Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

I don't want the Vtech answering machine to work but suddenly is is now serving as my answering machine. How do I turn it off?


Since you didn't specify the model of your machine I can't give you a definite answer, but on many VTech systems there's an ANS ON/OFF that toggles the answering machine between ON and OFF.

Enter the model of your system into the search box at

to get the manual.

Caller cannot leave a message & the letter A is showing on the recorder


Your system is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer". Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech answering system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual to learn how to switch the mode.
