Caller's greeting has backgound noise/interference

Whenever I attempt to record a personalized greeting, all I get is very loud background buzzing interference. Someone suggested it was my modem, but I've taken the phone out to my car and used my lighter-adapter (for power) and I'm still getting interference. I want my callers to know they've called the right number by a personalized greeting, but I can't get one. Please help.

SOURCE: Message Greeting

The KX-T7456 is a proprietary system phone. You have a Panasonic phone system and a voice mail, both separate items with their own part number. Your phone can work on several different systems and use different voice mail so your first step is to determine the part numbers from the system and voice mail. Then you will need a "programming" manual or possibly "administrator's manual" NOT a "user guide" for at least your voice mail and maybe for the system as well.

SOURCE: Caller ID does not work


What I did was UNPLUG the base's power unit from the wall... waiting about one minute, and plugged it back in.  That caused it to "reboot" the entire system, and the CID now shows itself.

SOURCE: buzzing tone. Can barely hear caller's voice because of the buzz

Two things to look at:

First, check the base station isn't too close to some interfering item of electronic equipment - try moving it to see if the problem diminishes.

Second, unplug the cordless phone and put a traditional corded phone in instead (if you don't have one lying around, it would be a wise investment to get one, otherwise you'll be without a phone service if your power goes out). If the buzz is still there, the problem lies with your line rather than with the phone (and that's the TelCo's problem, not yours).

SOURCE: Background Music

You need 2 or 3 things to do that. On the system cabinet is a port labelled MOH. (There may be 2). You need a music source, in the U.S. you can use a commercial grade player with promotions. Use a search engine with the words MUSIC ON HOLD PLAYER. You could also use a radio, just don't get caught. Especially in today's climate, people make a living calling your business and listening for illegal use of commercial radio on phone systems. The licensing agencies issue huge fines for that.

Last, you also need some programming in system options.

Here's a reprint from another forum:

If you're looking for the best all-around player, the IntelliTouch OHP-6000 and OHP-8000 is a good place to start. It comes with Message Studio 3.0 that gives you the ability to mix royalty free music with your voice cuts. You can also purchase about 30 more tracks for $20. You can download Message Studio 2.5 to test the interface and search the product at The 6000 uses SD Memory, the 8000 uses USB memory drives.

I am also very fond of the Premier Technologies USB-1100. It's more expensive but it's all metal construction, easier to mount, and uses the USB drive. You transfer your MP3 files to it, plug it in, hit the reset button and walk away from it. They're at You don't get software with this unit, but I happen to know someone who keeps a copy of Message Studio 3.0 on his laptop for these occasions and we can sell you Message Studio 3.0 alone.

Hope this helps.

Setting up your voicemail

Change voice mail message from one person to another person

Step 1 Lift the handset for your telephone and listen for the dial tone. Dial the access code you were given by Verizon when you signed up for residential telephone service. Dialing the access code will call the voicemail system. If you do not have an access code, you will need to call Verizon Customer Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif (see link in Resources).
  • Step 2 Identify the telephone number you are setting up voicemail services for. If you are calling from that telephone number, enter the temporary passcode and then press "#." The temporary passcode is the last 4 digits of your residential telephone number. If you are calling from a different phone, press "*" when the system greeting starts to play, then enter the 10-digit telephone number when prompted. After this, you will be asked to input the temporary passcode.
  • Step 3 Choose a new passcode. The passcode must be from 4 to 8 digits in length. It should be easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. Do not use easy to guess numbers, such as 1234 or 1111. Also do not re-enter the same temporary passcode, since it will be easy for anyone to guess.
  • Step 4 Record your name. Simply say your name, without a long complicated message. This recording is used by the voicemail system to identify you whenever you forward a message to another user. It is not used as the standard greeting when a caller is directed to your voicemail to leave a message.
  • Step 5 Record or change your personal greeting. This greeting is played any time someone reaches your voicemail box. Record a friendly greeting to announce that you are unavailable and will return all calls upon your return.
    Decide if you want to set up a different mailbox for each family member. Verizon residential telephone service allows you to set up multiple mailboxes so that everyone can have his own private message center. Callers who reach voicemail will be prompted to press "1" to leave a message for one person, press "2" for the next person, and so on.
  • Step 6 Hang up the telephone. When you have finished setting up the voicemail system on your Verizon residential phone line, hang up the phone to end the call and exit the voicemail system.

    How do you set up the message for the answering machine? Lost the instructions that came with the unit. I know the phone has a menu, but not sure if this is where I would program the answering machine.

    Greeting message
    When the unit answers a call, callers
    are greeted by a greeting message. You
    can record your own greeting message
    or use a prerecorded greeting
    Recording your greeting
    You can record your own greeting
    message (max. 2 minutes and 30
    seconds). If you do not record a

    Buzzing noise

    well I think I have solved the problem...

    After numerous attempts to isolate the unit from possible source of interference, I had the idea to
    reset the base unit (disconnect and reconnect the power cable) and it seems to have worked!!!
    Often the solution is the most obvious but our minds look for complications all the time!

    thanks anyway
