Question about GE 27851FE2 Phone

1 Answer

Answering machine does not work

I have a Model 27851 GE Cordless phone 3 in a set. I cannot get the answering machine to work. I have no messages. It was working and now it does not. It was given to me as a gift last Xmas so I do not have the
sales slip or box to send it back. Also I have tried to record a new announcement and that worked but it still does not pick up and answer when I turn it on to answer on.
Thanking you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

To record a new Outgoing Announcement, press and hold the Announce button on the base. Begin speaking after the beep. You can record a message up to 2 minutes and should be about 9" from the microphone. When you have finished speaking your entire message, release the Announce button.
The manual for your GE 27851 is available here: . The phone was made by Thomson and most of their phone manuals are available here: . Select the type of phone and the language in which you wish to read the manual. Then click Search. The models will be listed in numerical order.

If it's the model 27851 it's as easy as setting each handset in the base (the answering machine part) for 20 seconds. That's it! Hope this helps.
