My Lucent 1715 won't accept messages.

It states, "This machine can't accept messages", and won't play our announcement. Any thoughts?

Try just pressing down on the greeting button on the answering machine, you will hear the lady say "record greeting" and keep holdong down until you are finished recording the message. When you are done, remove your finger, done!

I have an answering machine AT&T 1715, but miss the cord power, could you please tell how many amps need and voltage too


Check the bottom of your answering machine. It should have the required power adapter listed. At least my answering machine had a nice clear label.

My 1337 AT&T answering machine uses the DAS-2 power adapter. This outputs 9V 780mA. Googling the adapter number I found that the Lucent 1715 also uses the DAS-2 adapter. (The Lucent is probably identical to the AT&T but check your machine.)

I found a used one here: http://cgi.ebay.com/LUCENT-TECHNOLOGIES-DAS-2-TELEPHONE-POWER-UNIT-9-VAC-/250730379907 . There may be other e-bay sellers with the item.

I hope this helps.

— OR —

number key (1-4) to select a line or mailbox.
Press 41 after the two beeps to play
your announcement.

I want to setup my Lucent AS40 answering machine


I had a problem recently when I looked online to find the manual for this model and a similar model, and thankfully I was able to solve the mystery and locate it. Even though the answering machine says it is a Lucent AS40, the correct user manual for it is the manual for the AT&T 1715. Once I figured this out, it was super easy to locate the manual on AT&T’s website... and sure enough, these two products are identical!!!

The user manual for the AS40 can be found at http://telephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/161/1715_manual.pdf

I figured this out when I ran across an old article discussing a joint venture between Lucent Technologies (AT&T) and Philips Electronics. Apparently the two companies decided to merge together and combine their resources to develop technologically advanced answering machines. After the products were developed, each company marketed them under their name with a different model number, but both were selling the same thing! The reason we couldn’t find the user manual for the Philips model is because Lucent (AT&T) has the manuals!

In case this might help someone, I own two of these answering machines and can vouch that the user manual for the Lucent AS40 is the same as the AT&T 1715 and the Philips AD2735 is the same as the AT&T 1725. Here are the models that were produced during the joint venture:

AT&T/ Lucent 1715 = Lucent/ AT&T AS40
AT&T/ Lucent 1725 = Philips AD2735
AT&T/ Lucent 1717 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 1815 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 1825 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 7625 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 7630 = ?

Not working


Astonishingly, assignment of announcement to phone line is not documented in the user manual. Tech support was totally worthless concerning this issue. I had to discover it by trial and error. To assign an announcement to a specific phone line do the following:
1) Record your announcement message for a, b, c, ao, etc. as documented
2) Press program
3) Keep pressing the feature button until ANNC appear at the bottom of screen, line 1 appears at the top, and the letter 'a' appears in the middle.
4) Choose the announcement to be assigned to Line 1 by pressing the select button
5) Press the feature button again. Line 2 appears in the display.
6) Repeat step 4 to select the announcement to be assigned to Line 2.
7) Press program button, or take phone off-hook to end the sequence.

Shame on AT&T for such shoddy documentation, and lack of support for their products!
