Question about GE 27998GE6 Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Outgoing announcement lost

We have a GE 27998GE6 that my daughter took to her home to use... An outgoing announcement was on the phone by my wife and her mother who passed away 3 years ago, and it is the only recorded sound of her voice we have... She has it doing the default announcement right now (she accidentially got it that way), is the recorded announcement by her mother retrievable from this?

Thanks...

The recorder is a Digital answering system with 14 minutes of message time. That means it MAY still be in memory. If you can use the phone features to play back all messages an ensure it is not available from that menu, then see if you have a greeting menu and can change which greeting plays. IF it remembers it has that greeting, it may play it and ask if you want to use that one. If you are able to access it, you will probably want to record it with a cassette type recorder that does a decent job. If it was extremely important enough to pay a technician to attempt it (it will cost some $$), I'd take it to a good electronics repair shop and ask them if they thought they might be able to recover any voice stored on it.
Good luck and God bless!

Lost mannual on 5.8GHZ NEED TO CHANGE MESSAGE ON MACHINE


To record a new Outgoing Announcement, press and hold the Announce button on the base. Begin speaking after the beep. You can record a message up to 2 minutes and should be about 9" from the microphone. When you have finished speaking your entire message, release the Announce button.
The manual for your GE 27851 is available here: http://www.home-electronics.net/USER-GUIDES/27851_DOM_EN_CL_IB.pdf . The phone was made by Thomson and most of their phone manuals are available here: http://www.home-electronics.net/user_guides.asp . Select the type of phone and the language in which you wish to read the manual. Then click Search. The models will be listed in numerical order.

I hope this helps.

I can not get my phone to pick up on the answering system when a caller is trying to leave a message


Try looking underneath the console of the answering machine. You must turn the answerer on on most machines and underneath there may be a switch to determine how many rings before it picks up as well.
