The answering machine keeps beeping and won't initialize.

We have a digital phone line through shaw cable. When we connected the answering machine it continously beeps. Can we use this GE Digital answering machine model #29875GE2-C with a digital phone line?

    Our GE answering machine model #29875GE2-B was not taking messages, so we followed trouble shooting guide and unplugged power cable from outlet and machine and then plugged it back in to reset. Now the machine makes a continuous beeping sound and the display flashes. The machine had been working with our digital phone service prior to this problem.

Problem with GE 29875 ANSWERING MACHINE


My reliable GE 29897GE2-A speakerphone w/ digital answering machine works perfect on my AT&T landline, BUT the answering machine does NOT work when connected to my Vonage VDV21-VD line (w/ voicemail and call forwarding disabled). I called Vonage Customer Support to inquire about this from their website:

"Can I use my own answering machine instead of Vonage server based voice mail?
If you wish, you CAN use your existing answering machine with Vonage. All you need to do is DISABLE Vonage’s server based voicemail system by logging into your account at www.vonage.com, and clicking on features. The voicemail menu will allow you to disable the entire Vonage voicemail system."

Vonage Customer Support was clueless. The only resolution offered was their suggestion that I might contact the manufacturer (GE-licensed Atlinks USA, Thomson)... lol, good luck with that!

So I installed a GE in-line "DSL Phone Line Filter" between the Vonage VDV21-VD and the GE 29897GE2-A, BUT the answering machine still does NOT work. It appears that Vonage is simply incompatible with the answering machine despite Vonage's bold claims to the contrary.

Answering machine leaves the telephone line open


Chances are it did not damage the control(operating) curcuits, but most likely the Telephone curcuits in the answering machine.

Call your phone number where you have the answering machine connected.

After you here the beep that follows your greeting or during your greeting before the beep enter your security code. It is factory set at 123.

It will recognize your code and begin playing the remote function.

Follow the instructions from there to hear your messages.

How to connect the answering machine to my telephone


You should have two jacks on your answering machine. One should be marked "Line". Plug the telephone cord from your wall into this one. The other jack should be marked "Phone". You will need another telephone cord to plug into this and then connect the other end to the phone.

Problem with GE Digital Messenging System #29871


I called the support number in the manual. They said to try a power off and power on sequence. Unplug phone line and then power, wait 10 minutes, and replug phone then power. If that doesn't work they said it is defective. My machine still didn't work so I am replacing it.
