SOURCE: vtech w/answering maching does not allow outgoing calls or record

unplugging the unit from the power source and waiting 30seconds seems to be the answer. the answering machine is working and i can call out again.
thanks you to everyone who posted that answer in different parts of FixYa.

SOURCE: My Vtech phone is NOT

You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones MORE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR ALL YOUR ELECTRONICS When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

I can't make any outgoing calls, although I do receive incoming calls, it keeps saying the phone number is wrong but I've dialed correctly plenty of times. What is wrong with my house phone?


Does it do with all outgoing numbers or just one?
Sounds like there is a fault with your line. There is a setting at the exchange that bars outgoing calls. Phone your service provider and ask them to check the line and the settings.

Why does vtech not have a speed dial? my son is


Programming Speed Dial Numbers
The handset must be OFF.
1. Press PROG. The IN USE LED will blink to indicate that you are in the programming mode.
2. Press the number of the memory location you wish to store the number in (0-9).
3. Using the dial pad, dial the number you want to store. The number can be up to 16 digits long. The number can be entered manually or by using REDIAL.
4. Press MEM to store the phone number
to the key you selected.

The phone now exits PROG mode and emits a tone.


Speed Number Dialing
1. Press PHONE to get a dial tone.
2. Press MEM and the memory location number key (0-9). For example, to dial the number you assigned to key '8', you would press PHONE, MEM, 8

How to hide my phone number when dialling or receiving calls


Dial *67 from the united states to block your number on outgoing calls. For example, if you wanted to block your number before calling 111-222-1212, you would dial *671112221212.
If someone is calling you then... they already have your number. Nothing you can do about that :)

Speed dial


1. lift the handset and listen for the dial tone. 2. press the store button 3. dial the number that you wish to store 4. press the store button a second time 5. press one of the numbers on the phone [0-9] and that will become the speed dial number. 6. make a record of the speed dial number and the name of the person it will call.
Then when you want the person on speed dial number 5, just pick up the receiver, get a dial tone and push 5. Thats it!
ps - kindly rate my answer as helpful. thanks

Talkwitch 240VS and TS400 phone


To setup the phone to automatically insert your external dial group (usually '0') before numbers, so you can save them in your phone book, and make calls from your missed / received call logs, you should check the TS400 manual.
For the TS350i you do this 1) press transfer/menu button 2) Press 4 - Call preferences menu 3) Press 8 - Access Code Prefix 4) Enter the number you use for outgoing calls (usually 0) 5) Press OK

Faxing problem


1) Plug a single line wired (not cordless) phone in to the exact same phone jack as the fax machine and dial one of the fax numbers you are trying to dial out to using the exact same digits. Does the call complete Y/N? do you hear a fax tone Y/N?
>>>>If either answer is "No" you have an invalid phone number. If both answers are "Yes" proceed to step 2.

2) When you off hook do you hear a "stutter" dial tone? Y/N?
>>>>>"Yes" This is your phone company telling you that you have unlistened voicemail messages in your mailbox. Dial in to your voice mail and clear your messages. "No" go to step 3.

3) 2 part question: Do you have call waiting and is your fax machine trying to disable call waiting when dialing out?
>>>>>In many areas *70 (star-seven-zero) will disable call waiting for a single phone call. If you try to disable call waiting when call waiting is not on the line, the call will not complete. This may come in to play in a speed dial situation.
+++Other things to consider+++
*Is outgoing long distance blocked on the line?
*Is outgoing regional intralata (same area code) long distance blocked?
*Is local calling blocked?
*Is a speed dial misprogrammed? Forgot to dial "1" Dialed "1" in error?
*Is there a wiring problem? >>>Try moving fax machine to a different phone jack.

There may be no magic answer for your problem, I hope one of these suggestions helps.
