Question about RCA 25205RE1 Phone

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???

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!

I can send a fax without any problem, but am not able to receive. I have set it to send after 3 rings, but the phone rings and then my answering machine comes on. I just turned my answering machine off. ...


Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls after five or six rings. Also, make sure the fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of the printer and the fax settings are correct (phone number, pick-up on rings, etc).

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.

Disabled phone line


Sounds like the answering machine is picking up the telephone line and not releasing it.

Hence the busy signal, cause the answering machine has the line off hook. It's like leaving your telephone off hook, the next caller will get a busy signal...

The answering machine might be bad... have you noticed that you were talking on the phone and hung up then the next call would be the busy signal? Maybe test this out.
Do you have the correct voltage to the answering machine, too much power or too little power can do funny things to telephone equipement.

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.
