Question about AT&T 1722 Digital Answering Machine

1 Answer

Flashing C We had a 15 second power failure the other day and now my answering machine is flashing C and number of messages constantly. The manual does not mention this. I have unplugged it and plugged it back in. Still does this. How can I get it back to normal? Thanks Ed Galicki

Flashing C means your machine is in clock mode. Try resetting the clock. This should resolve your problem. I speak from experience, because I just had the same thing happen to my machine.

Answering machine doen't record messages


Is it an older machine (with tape) or a newer machine (with digital recording)? If it's a tape machine, flip the tape over & try again. If it still doesn't work, it may be time to give it up.

If it's a newer machine, and you've recently had a power failure, it may have gotten confused when the power came back. It happens. Try unplugging it (from the power outlet), waiting 15 seconds, and plugging it back in.

Does it have a button somewhere that turns answering on & off? Look it over carefully, read the manual. It may simply be set to "do not answer". They have that functionality because some of us use two or more answering machines to screen our calls - one in each room where we MIGHT get calls. Only one is ever set to "answer", but they can all announce the call. Some folks use a second or third answering machine / phone combo as an ordinary phone, too... again keeping only the primary machine as their active "answering" machine.

Can you retieve deleated messagegs from your phone


Hello! The answering machine will automatically save messages if you do not delete them; Even in the event of a power failure. It can hold 15 minutes of messages. After 15 minutes machine will "wrap" writing over the oldest message. An old message (listened to) can be deleted by holding erase for more than two seconds. Pressing Mailbox X (1-3) will delete all Old Messages in that box. Once deleted they are gone forever...

IN CASE OF POWER FAILURE OR IF ANSWERING SYSTEM IS NOT OPERATING PROPERLY

If a power failure occurs or the plug comes out of the wall, your unit will shut down until the power is restored. One 9-volt battery must be installed to retain your personal greeting message and incoming messages during the power failure. Occasionally outside factors, such as power surges, may adversely affect the unit. If the unit is not operating properly or if the light continues to flash once power is restored, try these steps:
1. Unplug the AC adapter from the power outlet.
2. Remove the 9-volt battery. Replace with a fresh 9-volt battery.
3. Plug AC adapter back into power outlet.
4. When your unit is initially plugged in, it will check its memory for approximately 3 seconds.
Three deep tones will be heard if you attempt to record a greeting message before this
period.
5. Record a new greeting message.
