Open Question

AT&T 1739 answering machine shuts off after the beep but before the caller can record

We have a brand new machine but it shuts off after the beep, before a recorded message can be made by the caller. We have follwoed the setup directions to a T. Could it be our AT&T service?
Thanks.

SOURCE: No message recorded. Static when in use.

It sounds like you have damage to an internal component of your phone.

HERE is a link to the manual, if needed.

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.

have you checked its memory yet? because, When the memory is full, some messages must be deleted before new messages can be recorded. When the memory is full, or when 99 messages have been recorded, F flashes in the message window. Press and hold DELETE. The system announces "Messages deleted" and permanently deletes all messages. The message window displays 0.

If there are unreviewed messages, the system will play an error tone and will not delete any messages

If I get this AT&T 1739 answering machine will it retreive messages when I am on the phone with someone else, also can I record my own message on it for my business


Without call waiting or a second line, callers will get a busy signal if you're already on a call. This happens at the switchboard; it doesn't matter what type of answering machine you have because the second call doesn't get that far.
You can record your own message on the 1739 but, as mentioned above, if you're already on a call then the second call never gets that far.

How do you set up the message for the answering machine? Lost the instructions that came with the unit. I know the phone has a menu, but not sure if this is where I would program the answering machine.


Greeting message
When the unit answers a call, callers
are greeted by a greeting message. You
can record your own greeting message
or use a prerecorded greeting
message.
Recording your greeting
message
You can record your own greeting
message (max. 2 minutes and 30
seconds). If you do not record a
greeting message, a prerecorded
greeting message is used.
1 {MENU}
2 {V}/{^}: “Answering device” i
{OK}
3 {V}/{^}: “Record greeting” i
{OK}
4 After the handset beeps, speak
clearly about 20 cm (8 inches) away
from the microphone.
5 To stop recording, press {OK}.
6 {OFF}
Using a prerecorded greeting
message
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a
prerecorded greeting message for
callers and ask them to leave
messages.

Your question is not clear enough, You can check it out in the user manual. I just guess you are asking recording your personal annoucement.
