No further help is needed. I unplugged the wire from the answering machine and cleaned the connection, plugged it in again, and Voila!

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.

I just bought the Panasonic KX-TG9341T. This model has 4 remote extensions. My problem is the light on top of each phone keeps blinking. I checked to be sure I don't have any messages or anything else,...


The message indicator lights up when you have a new voicemail message, answering machine message, when you are receiving a call, or when the handset is placed on the charger. You can change the setting for the voicemail indicator and message indicator by pressing [MENU], [#][3][4][0], and press [▲] or [▼] to switch between off and on, then select [Save]. It is not possible to turn off the LED for an incoming call, or while it is on the charger.


Good luck...

I don't want the Vtech answering machine to work but suddenly is is now serving as my answering machine. How do I turn it off?


Since you didn't specify the model of your machine I can't give you a definite answer, but on many VTech systems there's an ANS ON/OFF that toggles the answering machine between ON and OFF.

Enter the model of your system into the search box at

to get the manual.

Speaker phone indicator will not go off


Liooks like you have the phone programmed to "Handsfree answerback" this will cause the handsfree light to flash continiously.
In this mode the phone will auto answer any internal call from another extension.... so watch out.
To switch this mode off press the program button above the displey & you be given th option to switch "Auto Answer off " I think it's the first option, try it.

We have a bt synergy 4500


It sounds like you're pressing the green button when you pick up the phone - when the phone is in the charger and you pick it up to answer it you'll be speaking straight away, no need to press any buttons.
You can toggle between speaker and the phone by pressing the green button.

Hope this helps...

Can't turn off mute on panasonic phone


[Mute /Auto Answer] is a dual function button.
Mute flashes when it is on and Auto Answer lit solid. Both of these features toggle on and toggle off. Auto Answer will turn on and off during the on-hook condition. Mute is employed during call.
If these lights are not associated with the Mic working, you may have a bad set.

Answering system


It first sounds as if the handset isn't charged properly. Check the battery status first. The manufacture advises to charge the system for approx. 7 hours before any use occurs. Second, make sure that the registration took, when programming the phone originally. I would de-register the handset by: 1 {MENU} i {0}{0}{2} 2 {3}{3}{5} i {OK} 3 Select the handset you want to cancel by pressing the desired handset number ({1} ? {4}). Then re-register by: 1 Handset: {MENU} i {0}{0}{1} 2 Base unit: KX-TG6021/KX-TG6022/ KX-TG6023 Press and hold {LOCATOR} until the IN USE indicator flashes. KX-TG6051/KX-TG6052/ KX-TG6053/KX-TG6054 Press and hold {LOCATOR/ INTERCOM} until the IN USE indicator flashes. LAfter the IN USE indicator starts flashing, the rest of the procedure must be completed within 1 minute. 3 Handset: Press {OK}, then wait until a beep sounds. 4 {OFF} Third, make sure that the display on the handset does not show "SP-Phone" in the display, if it does press the phone icon button. Fourth, Do you currently have voicemail from your phone service provider? If so, the answering machine will not answer. Make sure that the answering machine portion is turned on. Do this by: Press {ANSWER ON} to turn on/off the answering system. When the answering system is turned on, the ANSWER ON indicator lights. When the answering system is turned off, the ANSWER ON indicator turns off. If there are any further questions or comments, please post here. Please rate this solution through fix-it. Thank you
