When I or anyone else tries to leave a message on the machine, it says "Messages full." Yet when I attempt to retrieve these messages it says that I have 0 messages. How do I fix this? Thanks!

Make sure you retrieve all messages . I mean you may have 0 new messages, but you have lots of old messages ,it may full too.
Otherwise, delete all message, try to record incoming message or record your personal greating. Make sure the record function work, record chip works as well.

Deleting messages (memory may be full).

Verify you do not have old messages on the the system. After the system plays all new messages, press Play/Stop again or from the handset Select 2:Play.If you find messages, delete them during or after they play.

After you listen to your messages, the voice message icon turns off. If it doesn't or if you can not receive messages, you should try to reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Make sure the Record Time is not set to Announce Only.

Red light flashing continuously on answer machine as a result callers cannot leave messages


Hi Len,

A flashing light is usually indicative of unheard messages on the machine.

The inability of callers to leave messages could mean that the the machine is full.

I'm sorry that I cannot be more absolute with the diagnosis in the absence of a make and model.

Best regards
Mike

On my TG 2740 Panasonic base unit the 'answer on' light blinks constantly and 'all mail box full' is blinking also but there are only 17 messages. How do I clear the blinking light and the all mail box...


If mail box is full, you cannot record any more messages, and the answering machine is practically useless. You must clear some messages.
Try playing the messages one by one. While a message is being played hit the Erase button. If that works, repeat with every unimportant message.

Most cordless telephone answering machines have a maximum of 14 minutes recording time. You can restrict the length of messages people are allowed to leave. Most default options are 1min or 4 minutes. Some machines give you the option to select Announcement Only. When this option is selected people hear the announcement but cannot leave a message.

Read you manual for more configuration options.

Message center of GE Phone Mod. No. 29897GE1-A by ATLINKS USA,Inc


I wish I had a solution for you.  My Uncle has the same problem and the manual instructs to unplug/replug the machine and then reset the date and time.  He has done that for a while and now even that isn't fixing the problem.  I find this to be highly unacceptable.  I'm planning to get him another phone that WON'T be GE.

Norstar Mailbox Problem


The mailboxes don't need to have saved messages, to be full. More then likely what is happening is that when people call in, they are getting a generic/Auto Attendant vm box, and that one is full. Try checking vm box #100, or #10. That is the Nortel standard general delivery vm box. Please let me know is this helps, or if you more help.
