TRy removing the DC power to the answering machine and re connect DC and power it back on. I am assuming it says no messages but tells callers memory is full.

It rings a long time, then asks for a code number, no matter who is calling.


This sounds like a "full memory" situation: the answering
machine only has a ~12-minute capacity.

When the message memory is full, it cannot pick up and
take a new message ( ...its limited space is full...)

Ringing ~10 rings is an indicator to you, the owner,
calling in to check messages that it is full. It asks the
caller for the Remote Access Code so the caller (you)
can listen to & manage ( DELETE !) some messages.

Basically, you just need to clean up the answering
system by deleting old messages...all should return
to normal then.

Good luck!

My panasonic KX-TG5663B's screen says 9 and a little circle. The answering machine is not working. It just tells callers we are not available and hangs up. Can you assist us with this issue?


The answering system is set for the greeting mode. It will enter this state if the message memory is full or when the caller recording time is set to Greeting only.

To change the caller recording time from the handset, press Menu 0 6 2 then select the desired length of the recording. Then Save the setting and press Off.

If the phone is in this state, then delete messages from the unit. Then reset the caller recording time.

The manual for the phone is available here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Phones-Fax/Telephones/5-8-GHz-Phones/Operating-Instructions/model.KX-TG5653B.O#ts .

I hope this helps.

It will not let someone leave a message on our answering machine??


In reading this issue I am not sure if you are referring to your voicemail that is provided by your cellular provider, or if cell phone callers are unable to leave a message on your land line answering machine, so I will answer both of those just incase. If you are referring to your cellular service and callers are not able to leave you a voice message, then there could be a couple of issues at hand here. The first of which is that your voice mail box may be full and cannot accept any more messages, If this is the case then you will need to delete some of the older messages by pressing and holding # 1 on your wireless handset and selecting the messages that you want to delete from the voicemail system. If that is not the issue then you will need to place a test call to your cellular device and let it rollover to voicemail and see what it is that the callers are being told. Sometimes there will be an error message. If this is the case then you will want to write that message information down and contact your service provider so that they can resolve the issue. If you call your cellular device and let it rollover to voicemail and the system tells you to enter the subscribers telephone or mailbox number, then what you have is called a "round tree message" and this means that there is an issue with the server that handles the voicemail for that celluar provider and their technical support team will handle the issue by reseting your voicemail. If they do this you may lose all of your messages, that is the downside. The upside is that callers will then be able to leave you messages.

If this is referring to your land line answering machine, I would recommend unpluging it, letting it sit for a minute and plugging it back in. You may also want to make sure that you do not have caller ID call block initated on your home phone, which will tell callers that there call has been delivered successfully but the party they are calling does not accept calls from parties who have their number blocked.

I hope that this information was helpful

"Memory Full" message received by caller, although all messages are deleted.


Looking for a new answerling machine. The problem is evidently internal, in the electronics.

Message Box is full. How do I erase?


Erase Messages
Single Messages
You can erase a message itself, leaving the Caller ID information.
• While the message is playing, press and release DELETE. The unit erases the current message and announces, "Message erased."
All Messages
You can also erase all the old messages only, leaving the new messages and Caller ID information.
While the unit is in ready-to-answer mode, press and hold DELETE until the unit announces, "Messages erased."
• New messages can not be erased in this way. To erase new messages, play them then press DELETE during play back.


Here is a link for the manual for your phone:

Message box says full, but machine shows 0 messages


Do you also have a telephone-company provided answering feature on your line (such as Verizon's home voice mail)? I've known other people who got this service as part of a package from their phone company without realizing it, and had just the same trouble. Your callers may be reaching that instead of your answering machine.

Most companies alert you to waiting messages through "stutter dialtone." When you pick up your handset you'll hear two or three short bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. This is your signal to pick up your voicemail messages. Are you hearing this?

Check with your telephone service provider if you are unsure. If your telephone answering machine says it hasn't taken any messages, the full box message must be coming from them.

I unplugged my power supply cord from back of phone and replug it again, I found there were in fact four messages. After I deleted them I was able to use the memo button again. So perhaps this willhelp you, too. Ackey320
