    Same problem - answering machine records caller's message, but when retrieval button is pushed, voice says, "You have no messages." Several have told me they left us a message, but our machine still shows "No messages."

    My answering maching states, messages cannot be left at this number.


  • Pose Jan 28, 2008

    I have the same issue. The other thing to add is my answering machine shows CL then changes to A, then back to CL, and so on. I am assuming it is related. What does this mean? Any ideas? I set the outgoing message and this at least allows a caller to leave a message, but even though they think they are leaving a message it doesn't seem to store it. I am researching this issue and will post a solution if I find it. Thanks!

I spoke to soon. I found out what the CL and A are by looking at the manual. The CL indicates that the clock isn't set, so I set it. That most likely isn't your problem.

The A indicates that it is in announce only mode. That may be what is causing your issue. Press menu until it says announce only mode (or something like that), then press change to change announce only to OFF. That should fix your issue. At least that is something worth trying. Good luck!

I have ATT VOIP service. You are probably recording your messages on your ATT voicemail. Change the # of rings for the voice mail to pick to more than the answering machine picks up. You have to get into your account and look for the section that allows you to do that.

How do I set the time and date on my 43-3829 answer machine?


Hi, here are the instructions for setting the time on a 43-3825, which is a very similar model. They should work for your machine too.

1. Press and hold TIME SET/CHECK/>> until you hear it beep twice. 2. Press ANNC/DAY/<< and the machine will say a day. Keep pressing that button until you hear the correct day. 3. Press REC and the machine will say the hour. Keep pressing it until you hear the right hour. 4. Press >= (the play/pause button) until you hear the right minute. 5. Once you've gotten the correct day and time, press TIME SET/CHECK/>> to save it.
While you're doing this, you can't let the machine sit idle for more than 5 seconds at a time, otherwise it will exit the time setup and you'll have to start over again. Good luck!

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.
