Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System

1 Answer

Vtech w/answering maching does not allow outgoing calls or record

Vtech # 5121- 5.8 wireless phone with digital answering machine- will not allow outgoing calls if the answering machine is turned on. also, incoming messages are illegible and not recorded as heard through live screening. recording is mostly static and strange noises.
the problem is NOT the phone connection, or volume on machine.
phone works fine when used with answering machine turned off.
how can i fix this?

Unplugging the unit from the power source and waiting 30seconds seems to be the answer. the answering machine is working and i can call out again.
thanks you to everyone who posted that answer in different parts of FixYa.

We have a 5.8 ghz vtech phone with answering machine. where the clock display is - there is an A. what does that mean?


That means your system is set to "announce" mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but does not record any incoming messages. The alternative is "record" mode, which plays an outgoing message and then records the incoming message.
Since you didn't specify the model of your VTech system, I can only direct you to enter it into the search box here and download a copy of the manual.

Your machine is set to the announce mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but does not record incoming messages. You want to switch it to the record mode. Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech system I can't tell you exactly how to do that.

Won't record message


Your machine is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer" mode. The announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record any incoming messages.
