Question about Thomson GE 2.4 GHZ Corded Base / Cordless Handset Combination Phone With Call Waiting Caller ID and Digital...

1 Answer

Power adapter wire too short to reach outlet.

I just bought a GE / Thomson telephone/answering machine and
found that the power cord is too short. It is an AC to AC adapter
and I was wondering if I could splice a piece of my old cord into
it to make it the proper length. I was told that the polarity of the
wires wouldn't matter so long as it is AC to AC but that if it were
AC to DC then I would have a major problem if they were backward
and am wondering if this is trueas the person who gave me that formation didn't seem too sure . I know that a simple fix would be to buy a power adapter with the right length of wire, but after searching
all over I can't seem to find one. Thanks in advance for any advice
you might provide.

It is tough to find the right power adaptor with the "right" length cord. Your best bet would be to use an electrical extention cord for the added length you need. "if you can't get the adaptor to the outlet....... take the outlet to the adaptor' !!!!

How to rest the answering maching


From page 20 of the manual:
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet and from the back of the unit. Then plug the power adapter cord back into the back of the answering system and the electrical outlet. This is a complete reset.

Phone (base and both handsets) rings once, then only a dial tone. People calling said they only heard one ring, then nothing. On the handset, there is a ringer symbol with a line through it when this...


This is likely caused by a trouble from the service provider. It is caused by a partial short on the phone line. The service provider can usually test the line remotely when you call the trouble in. Occasionally this problem is caused by faulty equipment(phone, answer machine, modem, etc.), bad line cord, bad outlet or bad building wiring. Inside the outside telephone interface box there is a modular test jack that has a short line cord connected. Remove this line cord and connect a standard telephone to test the phone line. Make a call to your number, if the problem occurs with the phone connected to the test jack, then the problem is with the service provider. If the problem does not occur with the phone connected to the test jack then the problem is in the building wiring, outlets, line cords or devices connected. Use a process of elimination to determine where the problem is. Example: disconnect all phones and devices and line cords, make test call with one phone connected, if problem continues inspect outlets and wiring.

Own a GE 29870GE1 telephone with digital answering machine. The digital part works but can't get a dial tone.


Hello,

Try unplugging the phone from the wall power outlet plug it back after like 3 minutes. Power on and see if you get a dial tone, if not, try reset the unit, once the unit is reset, the problem should be fix. Follow this steps to reset the unit,

Turn off the phone, remove the AC adapter, press and hold the page/call button that is on the phone and plug back your Ac adapter, this will fix the problem.

Take care.

After the link, I also put extra information tabout this phone that helped me find the manual for you- it wasnt easy to find. OK, best of luck.
