Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System

1 Answer

Answering machine is scrambled

When some one leaves a message it sounds like the person is mumbling and I can not hear the message. Is there a way to fix it? I have only had the phone for 1 month.

    The message that has been left on answer machine is garbled and mubbling. I took phone and base back and traded for a new one. New one worked for 2 days and started garbleing and mumbling just like the 1st one. ????

    when announcment is heard the message is completely "static-ed out"I cant get any satisfaction from the manufacterer. Very frustrating!

    It seems like 99.99% of my messages that people leave sound completely distorted, and some of these may be important but I cant amke out what the person is saying nor who it is.. I have tried switching the phone out, and cant do that again, as well as trying a phone jack with a dsl and phone splitter, as well as just plugging the phone directly into the wall. I need to figure out how to fix this problem! It is very frustrating!!

    I am not able to understand any message left for me, neither can I tell who the message is from, the sound is so bad.

I had the same problem, even took one phone and base set back for new trade. I had the same problem with the second one until I installed a DSL internet Filter in my telephone input line. That cured the problem.

When people leave me a message - the answering machine does not show that I have a message. The person calling hears the greeting - leaves a message, but I do not receive the message.


It may be similar to the problem I had on wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first.

My phone and answering machine sounds like a fax machine..I can not hear anyone on the other line nor can they leave a message


I am assuming you have DSL on this line. You will need to install inline DSL filter on your lines to cancel out the modem sound your PC is sending. Hope this helps.

How do I change the outgoing message on my Uniden 6.0 1580??????? Digital answer machine.


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.
To keep this greeting: Do nothing..
To switch to the other greeting: Press 6 while the system is playing the current greeting.
Each time you press 6, the system switches between the pre-recorded and the personal greeting. The last
greeting you hear is used as the current greeting.
Deleting Your Personal Greeting
You can delete your personal greeting from the base. You cannot delete the pre-recorded greeting.
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. Switch to your personal greeting if necessary. (See the previous
section to switch the greeting.)
While the personal greeting is playing, press 4.
The system announces “Greeting has been deleted,” and switches back to the pre-recorded greeting.

Cheers!
