How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message


Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1580-3om.pdf

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

How do I change the message... we set it a few years ago...can't find book


Oops, I posted the info for this on the VTech problem below sorry.

To change the message, first make sure your phone has the correct date, time, year, am or pm, etc.

Now, to Record Greeting - if you don't record your own greeting, a pre-recorded greeting message is used.

So, try this:

1. (Menu) press
2 (Go to Answering Device" with up/down arrow, press OK
3 (Go to "Record Greeting" with up/down arrow, press OK
4 After the handset beeps, speak clearly about 20 cm (8 inches) away from the
microphone.
5 To stop recording, press (OK)
6 (OFF)

Hope this helps.

How do I record a greeting on the Uniden cxa/5698?


With the phone in standby, press [greet]. While the preset message is playing, press and hold [greet] again. You will hear the announcement "Record greeting" and a confirmation tone.
If you already have a greeting recorded, you can delete the current one and then record a new greeting. While the current greeting is playing, press (delete). And then start over with the first.
Start recording your message. You will have thirty seconds, and the message counter will count down.
When you are finished recording your greeting, press [greet], (play/stop) or [set]. You hear a confirmation tone, and then your greeting plays back for you.
The full instructions begin on page 45 of the manual.

How do I record a new message please? I have a Uniden N32 phone with base station and three handsets. The recorded message was lost when we had a black-out.


There should be a button that reads "greeting".If there is no button that says "record" or "rec",then just hold down the greeting button and it should prompt you to record.It seems odd though,the digital answering machines usually hold their greeting even when losing power and coming back on.If it currently gives a "computer voice" greeting it should not be a problem.If there is no "computer" greeting,there may be a problem.Good luck.

Nseed to reset message on answering machine


There are two models - The TRU8885 and the TRU8885-2 -
For the TRU8885 the manual PDF form >>>Click Here<<<

Record Greeting allows you to record a personal outgoing message (greeting) which
the answering system automatically plays when you receive a call.

1) Enter the Answring Setup menu, and then the
Record Greeting sub-menu (see "Entering the

[STA RT] appears.

2) Press the START soft key. You will hear “Record Greeting.“ The message counter
displays 30 and then begins to count down.

3) Position yourself near the base microphone and record your greeting.

4) When you are finished recording, press the STOP soft key. Your greeting will
playback for confirmation.

Selecting Your Greeting (Base only)

Select Greeting allows you to choose between the two outgoing messages, a prerecorded
message or your own greeting.

1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the
Select Greeting submenu (see "Entering the
Menu” on page 16). P lay back greetin g
appears, and the current outgoing message is

choose the greeting. The selected outgoing message is played. Each time you
press the CHANGE soft key, the phone switches the outgoing message between
the prerecorded and the personal outgoing message.

Greeting was somehow erased


Hi Sherrie, I am sorry to hear about your husband, I will do what I can to help. I am fairly confident on that model that if you push the greeting button, then delete it will erase the message for good. Also, if the memory power failed, then it would reset to the default greeting and erase all messages and greetings. However, if the unit has options for multiple greetings (ie. default greeting, greeting 1, greeting 2, etc., then perhaps the default greeting may have been selected, while your husbands greeting is still there but is recorded under say greeting number 1. If that is the case, you can select it to play his greeting instead of the default greeting to have it play. I would find out for you but my computer is having trouble opening the manual on the Panasonic site, so here is the link. Look under "greetings" in the index. Hope I helped. Thanks, CG http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTM150B.PDF

User manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine


From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.
