Question about Panasonic Phones

1 Answer

We bought a telephone answering set in December of last year. It just stopped answering the phone and taking the messages. Is there and adjustment I can make to get it srarted again? Or does it have to be replaced? I certainly thought that a Panasonic unit would be more reliable than less than a year.The Model #KX-TG5771CS can it be fixed? Where? When? How Much?

First of all try unplugging it and taking the power off, wait a couple of minutes and connect it all again. Sometimes machines lock up for no good reason

Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph


If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

Set date and time


I know this post is old, but maybe someone will benefit from this answer in the future. To set the time & date on a Southwestern Bell FT484 telephone, follow these instructions:

  1. Press SET button
  2. Enter 2 digit month and 2 digit day (1218 for Dec 18)
  3. Enter 1 digit Day code (1=Sunday, 2=Monday, 3=Tuesday, etc)
  4. Enter 2 digit Hour and 2 digit Minute code (0445 for 8:45)
  5. Press * for AM or # for PM
Summary: to program Thursday, December 18th at 4:45 PM, you will enter this sequence "121850445#". It does not allow entry for the Year, so you will need to manually adjust for leap year.

Hope this helps someone out there.

How to rerecord the answering message


What model Uniden DECT 6.0 phone/answering machine?

Are you sure the message in on your answering machine and not a voicemail system provided by your telephone company? Many telephone companies offer a voicemail system that takes messages if someone calls while you're already on the phone.

Even though my answering machine indicates it is on, noone can leave a message.The response is that the mailbox has not been set up.Can you help? Thank you.I have had this system for quite a while and have...


A "mailbox not set up" message is coming from your telephone line voice mail system, and not from your telephone answeringmachine. What this means is that the voice mail on the phone line is picking up before the answering machine has a chance, and since the mailbox hasn't been set up it can't take any messages. So there are two things you'll need to do.

First, you'll need to set up your voice mail. You may need to contact your telephone service provider for setup instructions since not all systems are the same, but here's how it usually works. From your home phone, call your own number so you reach your voice mail. You should get the message that your mailbox hasn't been set up, and will be prompted for an access code to get to the setup menu. The access code is usually the last four digits of your phone number, and you'll be prompted to change it to something else as part of the setup. Through the setup main menu you can record your greeting and set up other options like the ring count before the voice mail answers. Set it for a number larger than the setting on your telephone answering machine. (I have my answering machine set to 4 rings, and voicemail set to 6.)

Step two is to verify the ring setting on your answering machine. Four rings is a common default setting, but it's adjustable on the phone. Most newer phones have menus that you access from the handset to set change settings, while older models have a switch on the base unit.

Once the mailbox is set up and you have your answering machine set to pick up first, everything will work as you want.

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

My light keeps blinking and i have no messages


My Uniden phone started blinking with no obvious message to listen to & draining all my phones batteries. Evidently it started at 11:27 pm last night, I woke at 5 in the morning and saw the blinking. Turns out altho I do not have voice messaging enabled in my Vonage account (VOIP), Vonage had sent a robo call to me in it & activated the MWI on my phones. Nice!! After I went into the account and listened to it, the blinking stopped. I still don't have it enabled in the account. I expect you've solved your problem. I'm just posting this tip for the next poor bloke who has this problem as it may help.

Caller ID Problem on the GE2811 Twin cordless phone system


How to get the caller ID to work on the additional GE DECT phone handsets. You must follow these steps in the exact order :
#1 - unplug the base phone
#2 - unplug the telephone line from the base phone
#3 - remove the battery packs from the phones
#4 - wait 10 minutes. reverse the order when assembling. Put battery packs in phones, put the telephone line back in the base phone and lastly plug all phones back in.
It takes about another 10 minutes after that before all phone handsets start recognizing caller ID.
