Question about GE 27996 Twin Cordless Phone

Phone not working

I just bought this phone 2 weeks ago. It was working fine until a few days ago. It didn't ring but the answering machine picked up. So I checked to see if the ringer was on, it was. So I pushed talk to pick it up and see who called. It will not pick up. It beeps 2x a few seconds later and shows "unavailabe" on the display. I have tried taking the battery out and replacing it, putting the battery from the other handset in it, unplugging the phone and plugging it back in, and I plugged another phone it's place and it worked just fine.

You may need to re-register the phones. Below is a link to the owners manual in case you don't have one. Good luck. http://157.254.235.130/public/IB27996DOME0.pdf

How do I change the number or rings on my vtech cs6619-2


The CS6619-2 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone or something picks up, or the caller hangs up.

To change the number of rings before your answering machine picks up, please consult the documentation for your answering machine.

We just bought a new uniden phone system and the Answering Machine keeps answering the phone after 2 rings. I set the base machine setting to answer after 6 rings but it didn't change.


If you have changed the setting on the base station and that did not work, power your base station off completely and try again if that does not work you have an out of box defect and need to exchange it.

Answering machine is not answering the phone calls. Have ringer set for 4 rings but the machine never picks up. was working fine until our power was off one day


If your phone rings normally and your can make and receive calls, the line is OK, please check if answering option is on, typically a botton marked ANS or similar with an indicator or a display showing that it's on.

How to change the numbr or rings before...


1) With the phone in standby mode, press the menu/clock key three times.
You hear “Ring time” and the current ring time ([2 ], [ 4], [6 ], [T ] Toll
saver), and it is displayed on the main base. Then you hear the guidance for setting
the ring time.

2) Press the volume/select/ or up or down arrow key until the desired ring time appears.

3) Press the set key to select the new ring time. You hear a confirmation tone, then
the announcement “Ring time” followed by the new ring time. After a few
seconds, the system announces “To set record time, press menu again.”

Fax machine won't answer and pickup. I have to manually pick up the receiver and press start. This just started a few days ago.


You probably have it in the fax/tel or TAD mode. Press the butoon on the top right side of the keyboard marked "mode" until the light above it is on "fax" only. This mode (fax/tel) is for phones/faxes hooked to an answering machine. The "fax" mode puts in into the direct answer mode as a fax machine.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

It doesn't ring


I had the same problem. If the phone is plugged into an outlet with any other device, the phone may stop ringing until you plug into an electrical outlet where it is the ONLY device using that outlet. This has worked for me
