Static on answering tape

We get nothing but static instead of recorded calls. The announcements on the machine (date, time, etc) are clear and understandable, but messages from friends cannot be heard.

I had been battling this one too...your phone may be plugged in too close to a computer where the modem signal can get crossed with your phone line...I read on here that this was a DSL prob but is also appears to be a wireless/cable issue too. If you can move your phone b/c of jack placement/power outlet, unplug the phone at the phone line and power supply, then plug them back in. This worked for me......

I have a gigaset 4215 answering machine (but it says 4200 on the actual phone)...but no manual...and am trying to figure out how to record message for the answering machine so people know its mine...but...


You control the answering machine from the handset. First turn on the answering machine. Press Menu then use the up/down arrows keys to navigate to Ans Machine. Press OK then navigate to Answering M. Look for a check next to this to indicate it is on. Press OK to toggle the answering system on or off. Then press End or left arrow to return to the previous menu. If the machine's memory is full, it will switch off. Delete messages so that the unit will keep the answering machine feature on.

Next to record a new message follow the above steps to reach the Ans Machine menu and press OK. Scroll to Announcements and press OK. Scroll to Record Annc or Rec Annc Only (if no messages will be recorded). Press OK then bring the handset to your ear and listen for the notification of recording and then the tone. State your message clearly into the microphone of the handset. Press End to stop recording and listen to the unit play back your announcement. (It will stop automatically after 170 seconds or a 2 second pause in your speaking.) If an Annc Only message is available, the machine will play it when the memory is full. Otherwise, it will turn off.

To select your announcement (and recording type) follow the above steps to Announcements and press OK. Then scroll to Mode and press OK. Scroll to Annc or Annc Only (available if the Announcement only recording has been made) then press OK. Again OK toggles the announcement on or off; look for a check mark to indicate the announcement will be played. Press End to exit the menu.

Retrevo has the manual for the Gigaset 4215 here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Siemens-4215-Telephones-manual/id/23319bh144/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the file.

I hope this helps.

Code to retrieve messages


Here are the instructions you need to follow:

If you want to be able to play your messages from a remote location, you need to enter a two-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) code (01-99).
To select a PIN, perform the following steps:
1) With the phone in standby, press [menu/clock] twice.
The system announces "Security code," and the current PIN code is announced as it is displayed on the base.
Then the system announces the instructions for setting the PIN code.
2) Press [volume/select/ ] or [volume/select/ ] until the desired number appears.
3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code" followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

Remote Operation
When you are away from home, you can operate your answering machine with any touch-tone telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages, even record a new greeting message.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) During the greeting message, press [0] and enter your PIN code
3) The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) You may continue to listen to the voice prompts, or you may select a command from the following chart:
Command Function Command Function
[0] then [1] Repeat a Message [0] then [6] Answering Machine On
[0] then [2] Play Incoming Messages [0] then [7] Memo Record/Stop*
[0] then [3] Skip a Message [0] then [8] Greeting Message Record/Stop*
[0] then [4] Delete a Message [0] then [9] Answering Machine Off
[0] then [5] Stop Operation [1] then [0] Voice Prompts
* For Memo Record and Greeting Message Record functions, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it
starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, enter the command again.
Note: Once you enter the remote access menu, you must enter a command within 15 seconds, or the
answering machine automatically hangs up and returns to standby.
5) After all of the voice prompts have been played, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the
command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering machine automatically returns to standby.

Turn on the Answering Machine Remotely
If you have forgotten to turn on your answering machine, you can turn it on remotely from any touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) Wait ten rings until the system answers. You hear intermittent beeps.
3) Press [0] and then enter your PIN code. The answering machine announces the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming message, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) Press [0] then [6] to turn the answering machine On. You hear the outgoing message and a confirmation tone.
5) Hang up the phone; subsequent calls will be answered by the system.

AT&T 1855 phone with digital answering system


If Announce Only is selected, no messages will be recorded.

When Announce Select is set to "A" and the system answers a call, the caller hears the announcement you recorded, followed by a beep. After the beep, the system begins recording your caller’s message up to three minutes long.

No message recorded. Static when in use.


It sounds like you have damage to an internal component of your phone.

HERE is a link to the manual, if needed.
