Wharfedale IN120-1 How do I record my own answering machine message?

I have recently been given this telephone but do not have the original manual. If anybody out there has it maybe they could help me as I've tried everything! I'm sure it's really obvious but there's no option on either the handset or the base to record your own message & I'm totally stuck!

Thanks

Generally, there is "greeting" key on base, hold serveral seconds untill you hear a "beep" , then begin to record.

Or handset have menu, like "answer machine" ,"Record OGM" like that. record OGM from handset.

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.

ANSWERING MACHINE RECORDING SAYS"MAILBOX NOT SET UP BY SUBSRIBER WHEN SOMEONE WANTS TO LEAVE A MESSAGE


This sounds like a message generated by your telephone company's voicemail system. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. And, depending on the settings, it may pick up the call before your answering machine does. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

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.

My answer phone is full up,but it has my mum on there who died recently,i only want to delete all the other,s but not my mum,but i cant see a way to do this can any clever person help me please xx


Thanks for visiting FixYa!

First, I'm sorry for your loss. I recently lost my mother, too.

Let's see if I can help. First, you need to know if you can call your answering machine from another number and remotely listen to the messages. You'll need your answering machine's user guide if you don't know the code to enter when your answering machine answers the call.

If you can remotely access the machine from another phone, you'll need a call recorder. These can be found at most local electronic shops or eBay. (See link below)

(I noticed you referred to *********** as "my mum " - so I'm guessing you may be in the UK.?) I'm in the US. So, this link is to eBay in the US but it will give you an idea what you're looking for.

or here:

http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=call+recorder&_sacat=See-All-Categories

Now, with a voice recorder, you can call your answering machine remotely from another phone - enter the code to retrieve your messages - record the messages you want to keep - and erase what's on the answering machine.

How do I retrieve deleted messages from my telephone answering machine


I am sorry. Your answering machine has about 14 minutes recording time. Space is limited. After you delete a message to make room and new messages are recorded, so old messages are pretty much shredded and un-retrievable.
But even if the message memory has not been totally rewritten, I believe deleted message are lost for ever. That is what I read on the manual for a GE or Panasonic phone user manual.

I hope I am wrong.

Can you please specify the exact model of the phone? Because the steps in accessing it remotely varies from model to model. Anyway, you can try to follow the steps posted here and then test:

Remote operation allows you to control the functions of the Answering System when you
are away from the Base,and call from an outside telephone line. The Answering
System cannot be accessed from another telephone on the same line. You can access
many of the Answering System functons from a remote location, such as listening to
messages, changing recorded announcements, and recording memos.
Remote operation can only be accessed from a touch tone telephone. If the remote phone
is set to pulse dialing, switch it tone. If tone dialing is not available, you will not be able
to access the Answering System.
Note: All function codes should be entered within 2 seconds in order to activate Remote
Operation.
To Activate Remote Operation From a Different Telephone Line
1. If the Answering System is OFF, you can dial your telephone number and wait for
the Answering System to answer your call after 10 rings. An announcement, "Please
enter your security code" is given, and you enter your security code to use remote
operation.
2. If the Answering System is ON, it will answer your call and begin playing the currently
selected announcement (as with any incoming call).
3. Enter # followed by your 2 digit security code during the announcement. The
default security code is 19.
4. Once the security code is received, a double confirmation beep will be given, and
you are in Remote Operation mode. You can then control the Answering Machine
functions using the telephone keypad.
5. The user can also enter the Remote Operation mode during message recording. The
procedure is the same as step 3. The recording will be stopped after entering the
valid security code "s#xx " and the incomplete message will be deleted. If " 0s"
is entered, the Answering System will release the line, but the recorded message
will still be retained.
6. If the user enters a wrong security code, the system will release the line.
Playing Messages Remotely
1. Press " #1 ", " #2 " or " #3 " on the touch tone keypad to play the messages in the
corresponding mailbox.
2. The system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX new messages and XX old
messages" and the system will playback the new message only. If there are no new
messages, the system will announce "Mailbox X. You have XX old messages. On
the other hand, in the absence of old messages, the system will announce only the
number of new messages.
Repeat Messages During Playback
1. Press "#4" once during message playback to repeat the current message.
2. Press "#4" twice within 2 seconds to skip to the previous message.
Skip Messages During Playback
1. Press "#6" once to skip forward to the next message.
Stop Message Playback
1. Pressing "#5" during message playback will stop playback.
Deleting Messages
1. Press "#9" once during message playback to delete the current message.
Note: Playback will pause if "#" or " " is entered. Answering System will wait for the
command in the following 2 seconds. If no further tone is entered, playback will be resumed.
Memo Recording
1. Press " 8".
2. After selecting the mailbox by entering command "1", "2", "3", You will hear, "Now
recording", followed by a beep.
3. Enter "#5" to stop recording when you have finished.
Change OGM Remotely
1. Enter " 7" to record a new OGM. You will hear, "Now recording", followed by a
beep to signal start of recording.
2. Press "#5" to stop recording. Your new OGM will playback automatically.
Check OGM1 Remotely
Enter "#7" to review OGM. You will hear playback of OGM followed by a beep.
Turning Answering System ON or OFF
Pressing "#0" toggles the Answering System ON/OFF. "Answer machine on", or "Answer
machine off" will be announced, followed by a beep.
Voice Menu for Remote Operation
The system provides two pre-recorded voice menus to help you during remote operation.
Press " 5", and you will hear the simple voice menu.
The simple voice menu is as follows:
• Press "#1" to play mailbox 1.
• Press "#2" to play mailbox 2.
• Press "#3" to play mailbox 3.
• Press "#5" to stop.
• Press "#4" to repeat the message.
• Press "#6" to skip the message.
• Press "#9" to erase the message.
• Press " 5" for other functions.
(To advance voice menu)
The advanced voice menu is as follows:
• Press "#7" to review outgoing message.
• Press " 7" to record outgoing message.
• Press " 8" to record memo.
• Press "#4" twice to repeat previous message.
• Press "#0" to turn the system on or off.
• Press " 5" to return to the simple voice menu.
Pressing any function code will stop the voice menu, and perform the corresponding
functions.
Exiting Remote Operation
1. Enter " 0" on the touch tone keypad to exit remote operation mode. The Answering
System confirms your action with a long beep and then disconnects.
2. The Answering System also automatically disconnects if no key is pressed within 20
seconds during remote operation.
