The 1724 has worked fine for several years.
Ineeded to record a new voice message as my wife started a new business and need to add a mail box. When I reide to record the new message the voice came out garbled. I tried recording under several different methods and still come out the same. Would like to fix this as they just don't make a machine with all these features any more.
The internal microphone might be failing. If you haven't already tried….call into the answering and recording the greeting that way. If that's been tried and doesn't work, there isn't much more that can be done as modern electronic devices are not designed to be user fixable. You might be able to find a used 1725 or 1726 for sale on eBay.

To record a new greeting, you must use the handset. Press Menu and use the Up/Down arrows to reach the "Answering System" line. Press OK and then navigate to the Greeting. Press OK again. Select the line "Record Greeting" and press OK. Select Yes to confirm recording a new greeting and press OK. After the beep, hold the handset about 8" away and speak clearly. Recite the entire message that you wish to record; the message must be under 2 minutes long. Press OK to save the greeting and press End to exit the sub-menu. Make sure that the answering system is on (and set to pick up on fewer rings than any other voice mail system, if your telephone provider offers one, for example). Make sure that the memory is not full. The system can only accept 18 minutes of recordings, including the greetings.
You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when people call while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

This was a new phone I was using,& didn't realize I had voice mail on it. When it rang 2 times, it recorded the message before I answered on the 3rd. or 4th ring, giving me a dial tone. It is all fixed now.
I have model no. 1188 bellsouth digital answering machine. If you have to leave a message, the message I recorded is no longer there, there is a generic message saying please record your message. How do I go back and record my voice with my message. I cannot find my original manual.
There are a number of ways that you could do this that range from secret agent technology to gee-whiz gear that you could hand-build yourself, but it sounds to me as if you just want to preserve the message and place it on your new phone (grin) so let us keep it simple.
Any Radio Shack can sell you a suction-cup mic that will plug into any recording device including the sound in jack on your computer. These are cheap, and best of all make very good recordings as long as there is not a lot of background nose in the room you are recording from.
Buy one, attach it to a regular phone handset and call your house. Just before the announce message begins to play, start recording. When it finishes, stop recording.
If you did this with a digital voice recorder you can simply play it back to your new answering machine while it is in message record mode. You might want to MP3 the recording so you have it forever as well...
