Question about RCA 25205RE1 Phone

1 Answer

RCA 25205 wont answer correctly

I've got an RCA 25205 2 line phone.(purchased yesterday 10-26-08 from Staples) I can not get the answering machine portion to work. I've recorded all of the messages ie work private, after hours for both lines and confirmed they are recorded. Work and after hours times are set. Answer button is on. OGA config is set to timed. Time and date are set and correct. When you call in to either line 1 or 2, the default message comes on and plays and then does not let you leave a message. It blinks that there is a new call and CID works. I have even replaced this phone with another RCA 25205. Exactly the same problem. What's wrong???

    phone mailbox is set up but when someone else calls and we do not answer, it does a default message that "the subscriber has not set up their mailbox" doesn't allow the caller to leave the message

Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

Here's the manual for your 2-line phone:

Phone keep initializing


I had the same problem (constant initializing with dropped lines, no dial tone, etc) with my RCA Visys 2-line phone (model 25205) after owning it about 3 months, and could not find a solution on the Web, so I called RCA customer service. They said this problem is not user-fixable and they gave me an RMA# to return it. They will send a replacement phone as soon as you fax the receipt, your name, problem with the phone, etc.. Then when you get the replacement phone you send them the bad phone.

I just purchased this phone and hooked everything up correctly, but the Line in use light is on and the handheld states line in use and the answering machine will not respond to pick up messages. What is...


The phone will do this if it isn't (or thinks it isn't) connected to a working phone jack. Try a known good phone (corded type) in the jack to verify that in fact there is dial tone there. Also make sure that the line cord is firmly plugged in at both ends until the latching tabs snap into place. Sometimes it's just a poor connection because the plug isn't all the way in. You can also try another line cord. Bad ones do pop up sometimes.

If everything is correct with the phone jack, take the phone back to the store for an exchange. You have a dud.

RCA 25205 Visys will not record message


Called the company. There is a misprint in the instructions.

In the section titled "Out-Going Announcement RECORD" on last step it says Press Exit to stop recording. It should have said Press Sel/Save.

I did this and it worked.

Repeat for Line 2 if you are doing both lines.

Next thing is to make sure you go right to the section titled "Configure Out-Going Announcement" and select the right type of message you want callers to hear for each line.

Worked like a charm and took 3 seconds to get 2 different personal messages on the machine.

Phone is not recording all messages left


The 25414RE3 isn't the model with the answering machine. The one that has the answering machine is the 25415RE3.

As for the problem, does the answering machine part of the unit actually pick up the line? Does it announce your pre-recorded message? Does it just not record the caller's response?
