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.

Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz cordless system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual to learn how to switch modes.

WE HAD A POWER OUTAGE.NOW MY KEURIG WONT TURN ON. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. THANK YOU.


Hi,first you need to check if fuse has not been blown out.Because when POWER comes back after an outage there is a surge voltage flowing through electrical lines.It is advisable that when their is a POWER outage you have to turn off your FUSE box or SAFETY box to make sure that it won'tdamage appliances when POWER comes back>Technically when POWER SOURCE or SUPPLY has been shut off for a period of time.When POWER is back, expectantly there is an abnormal flow of current/line; current will not be as stable until a period of time..AC current behaves like a wave,values changes from time to time especially when POWER SOURCE has just been TURNED ON..So better turn off FUSE BOX when experiencing POWER OUTAGE so that when power comes back SURGE VOLTAGE wont flow within the circuit>Hope this helps..

1 have a xerox copier model XD120F Had apower outage when copier cam back on screen is showing a H4 and not powering up thanks Joe


Hello

Since the problem occured after a power outage,you should try resetting the H code.

Press CLEAR, EXPOSURE MODE, CLEAR, EXPOSURE MODE. The display should go blank. Then enter 14 with the copy count keys and press START. If the machine does not turn off and back on by itself - then turn it Off and back on. See if the H code should vanish and your copier should work well.

Our telephone and answering machine quit working after a power outage. Pushed reset button but nothing changed. The letter E is in the window of the base unit. When unplugged the power supply and...


it sounds like the unit has taken a surge, which is a common side effect of power outages. unplugging and replugging make fix the issue but since you have already tried this, i would reccomend contacting the manufacturer. See if a replacement can be given or if you have warranty on the unit.

The E is most likly a refrence to general error. the main board for teh unit was probably damaged by the power outage.

Will not turn on. after a power outage.


HI. this will happen during most outages. there is a fuse located inside the power supply device that is used to power your unit. simply remove the cover off the power supply box, and replace the fuse inside. this will correct the issue.

***((Now, if the fuse is OK, and not harmed, this will confirm that the power supply has failed. It should be replaced in this case))
