How to record messages

This machine seems simple, but it does not remember messages for me to play back later. I can call from my cell phone, or someone else can call me and leave a message....that works fine... BUT when I go to play back the message it always says I have zero messages. To the caller it sounds like they are leaving a message, but I can never hear it.

    I have this exact same problem, and my machine is almost brand new. If anyone knows what I can do to fix this it would be great.

Is the answering machine on or off? (Should be on)
Try unplugging it for ten minutes.

It sounds like two separate problems, MaryAnne44. I have the exact same machine, but don't have that problem. Sounds to me your machine is ready for the scrap heap.

R.S. 43-38293 a 2 way conversation was recorded with Morgan Stanley that is critical to outcome of court case. The recording is there as it was played one time after, but not it seems like it isn't there....


If erased, GONE. If you press the "Play" button, wait for the unit to say, No messages, then press it again. If nothing is played, it's gone. If it's still there, call your phone with your cell phone, access your answering device, follow the above procedures, and press the record button on your cell phone. Then send it to your e-mail for a hard copy. Good luck.

How do i retrieve messages when out of town, from my v-tech 5.8 & can i use my cell phone to do this ?


If I remember correctly you can remotely connect to your answering machine.
When you call the phone and it greets you (assuming you haven't changed the code) press 19 to get it going.
You should then begin to hear your messages. After you get past the 19 part (options are as follows)
1 ) Plays all messages 2 ) Plays only new messages 3 ) (During playback) Deletes the current message 33 ) Deletes ALL OLD messages 4 ) Repeats current message 5 ) Stop 5 ) (While no message being played) Lists Available Commands 6 ) Skips to next message 7 ) (While no message being played) Record new greeting 8 ) Hang up 0 ) Turn Answering Machine on/off

I have a Voca phone RT-250- It does not play back messages. The answering machine plays the recorded message - it records that three messages are there but then doesn't play back the recorded messages.


Need more info here, does the machine record a memo? Set the machine to answer mode and press the little memo button on the very rhs of the machine to start and stop recording.) This should leave a message like through the phone line. Will that play back? Lift the tape lid and see if the tape moves??? With a little more info I can help, I've been repairing those for many many years.

should record the announcement (up to
three minutes long) that callers will hear
when the system answers a call. If you
choose not to record an announcement,
the system answers with a pre-recorded

Voice message retrieval from a digital answering machine


There are a number of ways that you could do this that range from secret agent technology to gee-whiz gear that you could hand-build yourself, but it sounds to me as if you just want to preserve the message and place it on your new phone (grin) so let us keep it simple.

Any Radio Shack can sell you a suction-cup mic that will plug into any recording device including the sound in jack on your computer. These are cheap, and best of all make very good recordings as long as there is not a lot of background nose in the room you are recording from.

Buy one, attach it to a regular phone handset and call your house. Just before the announce message begins to play, start recording. When it finishes, stop recording.

If you did this with a digital voice recorder you can simply play it back to your new answering machine while it is in message record mode. You might want to MP3 the recording so you have it forever as well...
