It maybe hardware issue. Make sure the recording DTAM chip is working. You can try to record your personal annoucement, to see if the chip still record message.

SOURCE: it will record my message and answer incoming call

Usually this is a sign that the unit is in Announce Only (AO) mode.

To check the setting, press Options. Then use the softkey to select Ans Sys. Next select the line for which you want to check the setting (L1 or L2). Use the up/down (Call List) arrows to choose the current message type (A, B, C, or AO). Press Play/Stop to play this message or select Record to record a new message. To save desires the outgoing message announcement setting, press OK after you select A, B, C, or AO. Repeat this for the second phone line if you have a two line system.

A default message is available for the outgoing messages A, B and C. If you select one of these message types and do not record your own message, the default message will play.

The manual is available at retrevo here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/AT%26T-1782-manual/id/473bh051/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the file.

I hope this helps.

Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph


If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

Record messages


Make sure it's in the "Answer" mode, not the "Announce" mode. The Announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record an incoming message. The Answer mode does record incoming messages.
Since you declined to specify the model of your Uniden phone I can't tell you exactly how to switch modes. Select the model of your phone from the list beginning here to download a copy of the manual.

Not recording


Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only)
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
