SOURCE: vtech A5874 answering machine not working & letter A shows.

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.

You have the answering machine set to announce only.

Press the menu button repeatedly until you hear the phone say "set announce only" Press the change button twice The first time tells you the current setting which is "on" the second time turns it off.

I have a 5.8 vtech cordless phone and answering machine combo. The answering machine has a Ain the screen and doesn't record incoming messages.


Your machine is set to the announce mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but does not record incoming messages. You want to switch it to the record mode. Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech system I can't tell you exactly how to do that. I can direct you to enter the model number into the search box here to download a copy of the manual.

Vtech 5.8 digital spread spectrum answering machine the machine will not record a answer, it is flasing between a cl and a on the display


Your machine is set to Announce Only, where it announces you're not available but does not allow the caller to leave a message. To allow the caller to leave a message, switch your machine to Answer. I wish I could tell you exactly how to do that, but since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

Won't record message


Your machine is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer" mode. The announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record any incoming messages.

The VTech 2460 is pretty much the same telephone as the AT&T 2455. Here is a link to the AT&T 2455's User's Guide:
