RCA phone 25205RE1-A System answer problem

System does not answer or provide any default answer or personal message recording. I have gone through the programing several times with the same result. I can set # of rings to answer but phone simply stops at the preset #

Any idea?

SOURCE: RCA 25205 wont answer correctly

Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

SOURCE: RCA 25205 Visys will not record message

Melissa is correct about the manual being wrong. You have to press the Sel/Save button, not the Exit button after recording a personal message. Then you have to follow the directions on page 23 to Configure each line to Personal Message.

SOURCE: THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD

This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

I can record an OGA, but when people call they get the automated default message. How can I set the OGA so that it replaces the default message?


Once you record your own message, it replaces the default one. If callers are still getting a different announcement, it's likely they aren't ever reaching your machine. Make sure that your telephone line voicemail service isn't picking up the calls instead. I've known several people with this same trouble, and they needed to modify their home voicemail (or whatever your service provider calls theirs) settings or turn it off. Then their phone answering machines worked properly.

The "new Message" light will not go off. All


You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

The Thomson folks said to reset the phone. Here's how: unplug power, then the phone line, then remove the batteries. Wait 10-15 minutes. Replace the batteries, then the phone line and finally, the power.

Note: We have 2 phones with these two lines and had to reset both of them to clear the "busy" on Line 1.

RCA 25205 Visys will not record message


Called the company. There is a misprint in the instructions.

In the section titled "Out-Going Announcement RECORD" on last step it says Press Exit to stop recording. It should have said Press Sel/Save.

I did this and it worked.

Repeat for Line 2 if you are doing both lines.

Next thing is to make sure you go right to the section titled "Configure Out-Going Announcement" and select the right type of message you want callers to hear for each line.

Worked like a charm and took 3 seconds to get 2 different personal messages on the machine.

My new RCA Model 25205RE1-1 1815MO does not want to record a OGA. It appears to be recording as it so states and counts the seconds as you are speaking. I press EXIT and the OGA is not played...


The RCA Manual in incorrect. Step 8 reads "Press Set/Save to start recording. Speak within 6 inches away from the Mic located under SPEAKER button." Step 9 reads "Press EXIT to stop recording." Step 10 reads "The OGA is played automatically for your verification. It will then return to the OGA REC menu to start over or to record another OGA."

Step 9 should read "Press Set/Save to stop recording and the OGA is played automatically for your verification."
Step 10 should read "Press EXIT if recording is acceptable. Press Set/Save if you want to re-record."

By following the Manual you never save your message. "Playback" always has the Default message that comes on the machine. Furthermore, Customer Service at 310-953-9028 doesn't have a clue.
