Question about GE 29871GE3 Digital Answering Machine
I bought a new telephone and hooked it up to my answering machine. When I screen a call, I hear it on my recorder but when the person hangs up, there isn't a message left on my answering machine. Also, after a few seconds of listening to "old" messages, I get an error "8".
Here's how we fixed it. The official solution in the manual is to unplug the machine for 20 minutes. That didn't help. Apparently, we needed to do it for longer. After we left both ends of the power cord (from the wall and the machine) unplugged for about 5 hours, the machine magically worked again -- and no more code 8.
