Question about AT&T 1738 Digital Answering Machine

1 Answer

Static in the recorded message. AT&T model 1738

Always had a problem with this machine with static in the recorded message. I've tried everything as far as disonnecting the phone line while recording message and moving the machine to a quiet area so there is no background noise. Any solutions as this is a Digital System

    Is there any static on/during regular telephone calls or is the problem just with how messages sound on the answering machine?

The microphone (located inside the unit and faces downward towards the surface below the answering machine) might be defective. One option would be to call into the answering machine and try recording your message that way.

Other than that, there really isn't much you can do for this problem other than replace the unit.

The microphone (located inside the unit and points downward to the surface below the answering machine) might be bad (assuming that messages left by callers sound clear).

One option would be to call into the machine and try recording your greeting that way. Else, there isn't much that can be done other than to replace the unit.

Static


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.

you have to set the answering machine to accept remote access. Then anytime when you call home and the message is playing you can enter the machines' remote access number to retrieve your messages.
