    When someone leaves a message, all I hear is static, I can't even hear enough of a voice to make out what they are saying.

    If you have a telephone connected to the same wall jack as the answering machine, do you hear static while you are on a call?



    If you move the answering machine to a different wall jack, does the static follow?

If the telephone line itself is static-free, connect a normal telephone to the same jack that the answering machine uses. If all calls are static-free, you've cleared the wiring and the telephone service provider. Next, plug the telephone into the jack on the back of the answering machine. If all calls are clean, but messages are still loaded with static, then we may be talking about a bad answering machine. If you have DSL service, make sure that there is a filter installed between the wall jack and the cord that goes to the answering machine.

When simeone calls, it won't record their message


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.

Thank you

Talking on phone,someone calls in & leaves message, can't locate


Thanks for the opportunity to help with your problem. If you also have voice mail through your phone service provider, it's possible that while you are on the phone, the incoming call is "waiting" (meaning you are hearing a beep while you are still talking assuming you have call waiting). If you don't pick up the incoming call, your caller will hear your "voice mail" message and leave a message. However, your answering machine will not indicate that you have a message.

If my assistance was of any benefit whatsoever, please give me a rating so I can continue to improve my service. Thanks for using FixYa.com.

Other side not hearing my voice often


Normal 0 Normal 0 If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
So hope this is of some help. Bud
