SOURCE: Need a new part

Radio Shack's universal (9V-13V, Model 273-1631) adapter should work fine for you. You can try setting it to the 10.2V setting, and if that doesn't work for you, you can try the 12V setting. Given that wall current can easily fluctuate 10% or more, the 1V difference is unlikely to matter. Make sure you get the polarity of the Adaptaplug correct -- inverting the voltage could actually damage your answering machine!

I need to know how to retrieve messages from a remote site


The original 3-digit remote access code was "500" -- you'd call your number and then, when the machine answered, key in the RAC.

Tip

Remote access for machine



This come from a previous model than I have (mine is a ol5870), but seems to work for this one in retrieving messages from another phone.

Default access code is 0000 if you haven't changed it (but you should); when answering machine answer dial in the 4 digit code while the outgoing message is playing.

Once in dial 1,2, or 3 to play messages (mail box number I believe)

You can dial * for a help menu

4 Repeat a message
44 Ignores a message (message won't remote retrieve next call)
6 plays next message (skip to next)
7 Deletes message
8 Lets you record a memo
9 Let's you change the outgoing message (5 stops the recording)
0 Toggles answer on/off

I hope this helps some people at least in part.

How do you remotely access casio phonemate TA-116


Look on the underside of the unit. You will see a three (3) digit number. When you remotely call your number and the answering maching picks up, immediately input the 3 digit number. The answering maching will then play the new messages for you.

I need remote instructions for the phonemate 3900 am


The remote function will allow you to control your answering device from anywhere. On the Phonemate brand, you simply "key in" your answering machine's PIN number when your answering machine picks up your call. From there you can playback your messages, erase messages, record a different greeting and more. On some models the "default" PIN code is stamped on the bottom of the unit. Some units have a battery backup to retain messages if you have a power outage. If your PIN code IS printed there, and you have forgotten your PIN code, simply remove the battery from the bottom of the unit, wait a minute, and reinstall the battery. Your PIN code will be reset. I have attempted to get a manual for your unit and the best on the web so far has only come up with the address as follows
Phonemate Answering Machine Sales & Service Center 2321 Morena Blvd. San Diego, CA 92110 Phone:(619) 276-7312If this helps, let me know. We'll dig a little deeper.

How do I set a PIN to retrieve messages?


Remote code
A remote code must be entered when operating the answering system remotely. This code prevents unauthorized parties from listening to your messages remotely. Store any 2-digit number (00–99). The default setting is “11”.

1 Press {MENU}.
2 Scroll to “Initial setting” by pressing {V} or {^}, then press {>}.
3 Scroll to “Set answering” by pressing {V} or {^}, then press {>}.
4 Scroll to “Remote code” by pressing {V} or {^}, then press {>}.
5 Select the desired remote code by entering a 2-digit number (00–99).
6 Press {Save}, then press {OFF}.

Note:
To confirm the remote code, repeat steps 1 to 4. Press {OFF} when finished.

How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely


Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.
