    You should try unplugging it for at least one minute to let it reboot.

    If this doesn't work please get back to me!

The answering machine is most likely referring to the other mail boxes.
if a caller presses 1 or 2 they record in the other mail boxes.On the machine you will see an envelope with a 1 or a 2 next to the envelope.
Press and hold one of these mail boxes and when the messages are played press del to delete each message as it plays. Do this for each mail box.
Have this answering machine and have experienced this problem.

SOURCE: how to get a message on a telstra m450 answering machine

Sorry, I have manual for this ridiculous device and i STILL can't program the wretched thing. By hitting buttons very fast more or less at random you CAN change the day, the minutes but changing the hour appears to be impossible. If ever there was a useless piece of junk it must be this machine. Here are the 'instructions' for what they are worth
To review to current set day and time, press the stop button.  To change the day and time, press and hold the STOP button (as the day and time are read back). To change the day, press the skip button (either one, apparently).
Next the hour will be read back. To change the hour press the skip button . Press the STOP button to set the selected hour.
Suppposedly the same process for the minutes.
Good luck. You'll need it.

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.

Not recording


Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only)
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Says machine is full, but there are no messages on the machine


make sure you retrieve all messages . I mean you may have 0 new messages, but you have lots of old messages ,it may full too.
Otherwise, delete all message, try to record incoming message or record your personal greating. Make sure the record function work, record chip works as well.

Radio shack 43-3829 answering machine


Well, your machine might be broken, or you haven't set the little switch on the unit to ANS. The switch is on the side of the machine where the cables come out. But here are the instructions from the manual:

Recording Outgoing Messages:

Your answering machine has a built-in outgoing message, "Hello, please leave a message after the tone." You can use this message or record your own.

1. Hold the ANNC/DAY/<<, and speak clearly into the microphone, no more than 10 inches away.

2. Release the ANNC/DAY/<< when you finish. Your answering machine beeps and automatically plays back your recorded message.

*Your outgoing message must be between one and 60 seconds.

*If you record your won message but wish to revert to the pre-recorded message, press DELETE during playback of your outgoing message.
