Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System
I have a vtech5.8 answering machine phone set and the answering machine won't stop blinking ''A'' and won't take messages. We have tried unplugging it, pushing ''Change'' and ''setup.'' Nothing works. Any suggestions because it's frustrating not having a machine that takes messages. Thank you for you help!
Try to disable the Announce Only feature from the settings and try.select the Announce Only feature to be in OFF condition.try it and then you will be able to use the phone in the good condition.try resetting the system also.thank you

Messages are retrieved from the base unit by pressing your mailbox number. You can set the base unit to give an audible message alert which beeps every 10 seconds when new messages have been received, or set it so the mailbox light blinks. The lights are red. You cannot retrieve the messages through the handset, so you cannot listen to messages privately (unless no one else is in the room, of course!). A small window with a red LED display shows the total number of messages recorded. You have to press the lighted mailbox button to see how many are in that mailbox.
You can set the number of rings before it picks up to 2, 4 or 6. This was another important feature for us because from certain parts of the house we simply cannot make it to the phone in 4 rings. Additionally, there is a setting to screen calls so that by pressing the correct button on the handset if you pick up after a message has begun it will override the mailbox and you can answer the call.
You can pick up your messages remotely by dialing your phone and entering a two-digit security code that you have pre-set. I have only done this twice, but it was easy enough and worked fine. You can listen to new messages or old messages. Supposedly you can save, delete, record a new announcement and even record a memo from a remote location, but I have not tried all those features.
You can adjust the message volume. You can skip or repeat messages while listening. You can slow down or speed up the message by pressing and holding the repeat or skip keys. This is handy to be able to understand a number that someone gives you too hurriedly, or to move through a long-winded message-leaver to get to the number he left at the very end.
You can also use the mailbox to record a memo to yourself.
This is a digital recorder; there is no tape. A total of 15 minutes of messages can be saved, and the limit for any one message is 4 minutes. If you are gone from home for long periods of time and don’t retrieve your calls this might not be enough total time for you. It is plenty for us.
You can also make a separate recording to be used if you do not want to accept messages. In other words, the machine will store two outgoing messages at the same time, one when you want to accept messages, and another one if you just want to announce to the world that you are not interested in hearing from anyone. There is a setting which allows you to choose which message is heard by callers.
