    I have the same problem. The default announcement doesn't work and I can't record new announcement. And, therefore, the answering machine doesn't pick up the phone calls.

    I can't record any messages on my RCA 25205 phone. I first had a problem when answer 1 kept blinking, so I turned it off and tried to start all over. Now I can't record a message. It puts 120 seconds on for me to record and the seconds don't count down. It will not work and acts like it is froze. Any suggestions? Thanks

The information on handset says 'the line is busy' unable to make or receive calls , when i call the phone it just gives ringing tone


The fact that it just rings when you call it indicates your line is open, which could be a wiring issue at a modular jack, or the modular cord between the jack and the phone, if it isn't just that it came unplugged.

I keep an old touch tone phone handy to act as a test phone to rule out a failed phone. With today's network terminations a customer can access a test jack outside your home/premise to test the line provided by the phone company before it heads inside to your phone wiring. If the phone works there at that modular jack, the issue is inside, if it doesn't, the issue is with the line to the phone company.

Once you narrow it down to inside wiring you can inspect any or all modular jacks to make sure the red & green wires are not broken at the screw terminals and that the modular jack wires are indeed firmly tightened to the same color wire terminal screw.

And last, another phone on the same line that is off-line or not hung up could cause the phone company equipment to isolate your line until the phones are hung up for a period of time to restore the line. So check that all phones are hung up, even cordless ones associated with the base on that particular line.

How do I change the message on my answering machine?


Which Uniden phone do you have? for some models, you access the Answering System menu from the base; on others, you need to be holding the handset. The generic steps are below.

On the appropriate part of the unit, make sure that the phone system is in standby (no active calls on any handset). Then press Menu. Use the arrow keys to find the line for Answering System. Press OK. Navigate to a line about Greeting and press OK. You should see (and select a line) for Recording message. You'll be prompted to ensure that you want to record a new message. If you are using the handset, hold the unit about 6" away from your head. After confirming that you wish to record a new message, speak your new message clearly. When you are done, press End. The unit will cut off the recording if your message was too long. Make sure to save the message. Then go back up in the Menu system and look for a line for "Play back Greeting". If the message isn't clear, start over.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of the phone for specifics for your manual. Some DECT phone manuals are available here: http://www.uniden.com.au/australia/cs_operating_manuals_phones.asp .

If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

How do I unstuck my Phone from line in use?


unplug all the phones in the house, or go out to the NID (network interface device) on the outside and disconnect the "line" from the "network". It should have a standard modular plug. You should be able to plug a regular phone into that jack and see if the line has cleared. Chances are there's a phone in the house that's partially off-hook.

Phone line is busy, but the cordless phone is hung up


If the line is busy, there's a phone off the hook somewhere or there's a bad phone jack or line cord. If this is the only phone on the line, disconnect the AC power adapter from the base and also disconnect the battery in the handset. On both units, press a couple of buttons to drain off stored charge. After a minute or so, reconnect the battery and base power, and see if the line is free. Sometimes, especially in hot weather when lots of people using air conditioners or storms can cause power line glitches, the computer in the phone gets confused. This process resets everything and may clear up the trouble.

If you don't have another phone and the trouble continues after trying the reset, see if you can borrow another phone from someone for testing. If that fixes the trouble you need a new phone.

Your phone line itself might have a problem that is causing your phone service provider to think your line is in use. There may be water in the line or some other fault outside, or some problem on your inside wiring. (A friend had a problem after she plugged in a new phone, and it turned out one of the prongs in the jack had bent and was touching the one next to it. In another case, a phone jack that had gotten wet had corroded and was shorted.)

If you have other phones on the line, disconnect them all from their jacks. Reconnect one and see if the line is free. Then you can reconnect the others, checking each time. This will let you determine which one is causing the problem.

This kind of problem can be frustrating, but it can be solved. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

When I fisrst connected system to phone line thru rj31x jack everything seemed to work as it should. When I deliberately created an alarm the system seized the phone line, dialed my cell phone, and told me...


When you get the call on your cell are you supposed to do something to let the panel know the signal went through. It sounds like it still has the line siezed for some reason.

Phone off hook message


hi,

The most common reason for this message is when a dial-up modem is accessing the Internet on the same phone line. Just as two phone calls cannot come in at the same time, two devices cannot use the phone line at the same time.

f a broadband modem (such as DSL or ISDN) is on the same phone line and the message appears all the time, please contact your Internet provider for assistance. Even if a dial tone is present when listening to the phone line, the HP product may detect the broadband data connection at the higher line frequencies. Broadband modems must have a line filter installed to work correctly. Contact the telephone company for assistance. Please follow the directions below to verify functionality.
  1. Verify that the phone cable going into the HP fax product from the wall jack is a two-conductor cable type, not four-conductor. A two-conductor cable, like the one that ships with the HP product, has two copper leads in the connector. The connectors are usually clear, making it possible to see how many copper leads are inside the cable. Replace a four-conductor cable with a two-conductor cable.
  2. Disconnect the phone cable from the back of the HP product and the message should clear. If the message does not clear, unplug the power cable from the back of the unit, wait 15 seconds, and then plug in the power cable. If the message persists, see the "Problem still exists" section below.
  3. Disconnect the phone cable from the HP product and connect it to a single line phone. Pick up the handset and listen for a dial tone. If no dial tone is present, replace the phone cable. If a dial tone is still not present, a problem exists with the phone system. Continue with the steps below if a dial tone is present.
  4. Plug the phone cable back into the HP product and hang up any phones with a lifted handset.
  5. Disconnect, one at a time, other phones and devices using the same phone line. Check the HP product display after disconnecting each phone or device. If the message clears after disconnecting a phone or device from the line, the problem is with that phone or device.
  6. If the message still exists after unplugging all other phones or devices, see the "Problem still exists" section below.
