I have an AT&T 1738 answering machine that has developed a large amount of static when the announcement message is played. I have tried to re-record the message without success. Any help would be appreciated. Tom

The microphone (located inside the unit and points downward to the surface below the answering machine) might be bad (assuming that messages left by callers sound clear).

One option would be to call into the machine and try recording your greeting that way. Else, there isn't much that can be done other than to replace the unit.

Yes. Dial your telephone number. When the system answer, enter your three-digit access code during or after the announcement. The system announces the number of messages and begins playback. For full details, see the manual.

Lost manual for the AT & T 1738 answering machine and just need a refresher on how to program the message. Thanks !!


I found the link to the 1738's owner's manual on at&t's telephone equipment website:

http://telephones.att.com/telephones_ui/support/dsp_manual.cfm?manualID=21714

The link you'll need is the one on the bottom, and the steps to record the announcement are on page 1 of 2 over towards the right hand side of the page.

Static in the recorded message. AT&T model 1738


The microphone (located inside the unit and faces downward towards the surface below the answering machine) might be defective. One option would be to call into the answering machine and try recording your message that way.

Other than that, there really isn't much you can do for this problem other than replace the unit.
