Question about Vtech 5.8 Ghz Handset Cordless Phone System with Digital Answering & Caller ID
Answer system doesn't work. Letter A shows in window. Machine won't accept messages.
Posted by Anonymous on
Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.
Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

Somehow the answering machine was clicked off, but the announcement was on. Therefore I could not receive messages, but my recording was still on as if I was receiving incoming messages. I just played with the various on/off switches till it worked. For me, just plain luck.

Perhaps your answering machine needs to be set set to accept messages. Maybe your message machine memory is full of messages?
