Why won't the answering machine, when set to 'answer on' not record a message?.It goes to voice mail. Is my machine defective?

Maybe the answering machine is set to pick up at say"5 rings" and the voice mail is set to pickup at "4 rings" . Change the voicemail setting to a higher setting than the answering machine. That may be the problem.

Our DECT2015 phone only rings 4 times and then stops.How cane I adjust the ringing time of our phone? Thanks Peter

Do you have voicemail or an answering machine? This is usually a sign that another device (fax, answering machine or voicemail service) is set to answer the call after 4 rings. You will need to lengthen to number of rings before the service/device in question picks up. (The method to reset this will depend on the service/device that is picking up.) Another possibility is a call forwarding service that is enabled at 4 rings.

I hope this helps. Please write back with details on the device that could be picking up for details on setting the number of rings. If you have voicemail or call forwarding, check with your telephone service provider to lengthen the number of rings before the service kicks in. (There are too many for me to know all of the providers instructions.)

Set answer machine on a kx-tga101s to pick up on 8 rings

From the manual, it doesn't look like you can reset the ring count with this phone set.
