Won't stop blinking


That would suggest that you still have new messages. You could try resetting the device to factory defaults as described on page 48 of the instruction manual here: http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/73df25d2624475dac2cfdcbfa148f4a9

Note that doing so will reset all settings and any stored messages ! Please only use it as a last resort. A second option is to unplug the charger and remove all batteries for at least 30s before connecting it again ...

On Model 1725 get message F1, how do I clear it, etc? John


CLICK HERE for your owners manual in PDF format.

F1 indicates a communication failure with the digital EEPROM (onboard memory).

Essentially you have a paperweight now.

The repair requires a replacement of the memory module, and from all accounts, that proprietary part is not sold.

I would also assert the repair to cost more than another unit (new, or used)

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Message center of GE Phone Mod. No. 29897GE1-A by ATLINKS USA,Inc


I wish I had a solution for you.  My Uncle has the same problem and the manual instructs to unplug/replug the machine and then reset the date and time.  He has done that for a while and now even that isn't fixing the problem.  I find this to be highly unacceptable.  I'm planning to get him another phone that WON'T be GE.

Loud, screeching noise when taking a message


Managed to clear it myself. After making several cell phone calls to my machine last night and unplugging it over and over, etc. I gave up. This morning I again unplugged everything, reset all the settings and called the machine several times. At first I kept getting the "noise", but eventually I was able to call and leave a normal sounding message. Can't really explain what "cured" it! In desparation I did shake the machine and give it a hard slap, but who knows what did it!

GE Digital Messaging System Model # 29875GE1-B


If I am away from my machine and want to call my answering machine and hear the messages what do I do. Lost my manual.

Recording messages


Manual is online:
http://www.fixya.com/support/p129719-ge_29869ge2_digital_answering_machine/manual-13322/page-3

A warning I'll pass on that I just learned:
I just lost 57 special messages that I had saved for years to follow up on, and learned the hard way (if you haven't come across it yet):
From page 6 of manual:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOVING THE ANSWERER...
3. Go to the electrical outlet and unplug the power supply. DO NOT UNPLUG THE POWER JACK CONNECTED TO THE UNIT. If you do, all memory will be erased.
I wasn't even moving it to another place, the jack just came a little loose while moving it around the table, and all the messages disappeared. A very poor detail in an otherwise (in my experience) well-designed machine. Manual's page 6 covers this: http://www.fixya.com/support/p129719-ge_29869ge2_digital_answering_machine/manual-13322/page-6

TAD2012 Quick Reference Guide


To Install
1. Open the battery door with a ballpoint pen. Install one 9-volt alkaline battery (not included)
and replace cover.
2. Plug the telephone line cord (connected to the back of the TAD2012) into the modular wall
jack.
3. Plug AC adapter into standard 120-volt outlet. Plug your phone directly into an outlet, not into
an extension cord.

Answering System Operation

Recording Your Personal Greeting
1. Press and hold down the GREETING control.
2. After the beep, speak towards the front of the base; you have 30 seconds.
3. When finished, release button. Your unit will play back your greeting and
reset to answer incoming calls.
4. Adjust volume control on the side of the unit to set the speaker to the desired level.

Select the Number of Rings
Choose 2,4 or TS (Toll Saver), which programs the number of rings that you want before your unit answers.

To Play Back Your Messages
1. When the message indicator flashes, you have received messages.
2. To hear your messages, press and release the PLAY control. Your unit will automatically
reset after messages are played.

To Save Your Messages
After the last message and 2 beep tones, press the STOP/SAVE control.

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.
