    I have also lost my manual for this answering machine. I followed the link to get the manual but it only led me to a two page product specification page. Can anyone direct me to a site where can I download the entire manual?

    I cannot reset the time/date on my answering machine and lost the manual. I thought it would be easy to find the manual on-line but have not been successfull. It appears to me that the solution offered on this website only offers GE's specifications. Can someone either provide directions or the actual manual? Thank you

You just need to reset the time to fix this problem. There were three buttons on the back of the base for the day, hour, and minutes. I didn't know they were there!
