Answering machine not working

The answering system part of my phone suddently stopped working. It says the answering system is on, but it doesn't record anything. I have a recorded greeting, that is there when I hit the'check'button; but my greeting is not heard by the caller - only the electronic greeting is heard. Even when I turn the answering machine off - the caller still hears the electronic greeting telling them to record a message making them think they're leaving a message - But, no message is recorded.

I would like to change the answering machine message

Record a Personal Greeting

Access the answering system from any handset. Wait until the system finishes its announcements, or press 5 (Stop) to skip them.

Press 8 (RecNewGreeting).

Wait for the system to say "Record greeting," then begin speaking.

When you're finished, press 8 to stop recording. The system plays back your new greeting.

To keep this greeting, press End. To re-record it, go back to step 2.

Answering machine will not work

Power off the device and plug it back in. If that doesn't help, check the manual to see if there is a setting you can change. Next try the manufacturer's website for a FAQ that addresses your situation. Finally request a replacement from the manufacturer, assuming it is still in warranty.

Answering machine Model 25865. Is there any way to turn the answering machine "on" remotely. Example: while away, electrical storm causes machine to turn off. Is there any way to remotely...

The manual for this phone doesn't say you can turn the answering machine on remotely, but every one I've ever seen can do so. Most of them say call your number and let the phone ring...and ring...and ring, and eventually the answering machine will turn on. Ten rings is what I've seen most often. I guess the manufacturers figure most callers will hang up fairly soon if the machine doesn't answer, so they pick a large number. Try it on your phone; worst that can happen is it won't work.

"The answering machine is off. Please leave a message" (sic) This doesn't make sense.... how can one leave a message if the answering machine is OFF! Unless it goes to a voicemail etc? It's just not possible?

I suggest that you use your manual, and reset up your system again, perform a Factory Reset and then set up what you need to do again, this will clear any erroneous data that maybe causing any problems.

Whats seems to be happening is that the default "Voice" is being activated instead of the recorded message? I think you need to do it again.

After you have done this, record your message and set the answering machine to ON. Then test it from another phone.

NOTE sometimes with answering machines, if they ring more than a certain number of times, without being answered, the AP may switch OFF, ON or indeed do "Other" functions" that may be assigned, so ensure that this "Feature' isn't active or enabled or whatever.

Cannot get the answering system to work M M Brown

If you are talking about an answering machine it may be similar to the problem I had with the wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first. This might resolve it for you.
