Question about Answering Machines
My phone/answerphone is about 18 months old, and the instruction leaflet is in storage boxes while decorating, so I cannot refer to One.tel's own troubleshooting. I appreciate any advice here.
The answerphone has been recording a long deep-tone beep for the duration of messages, but the actual message has not recorded at all. Is this something that could be esily fixed, or should I just buy a new one?
If I do buy a new one, which brand would be more durable than a mere 18 months? Thank you. :-)
I phoned in from another phone and retrieved my messages. The problem was not with the answering machine but with the phone and calling card I had been using. Don't use a hotel switch board nor calling card, too many intermediate parties for the 2 digit code to work with.

1) Press the 'tape' symbol to access the answering machine mode.
2) Press 9 then 1 for 'answer and record'.
3) Whe you hear a 'beep' speak your message. Whilst recording the display shows REC OGM1 or REC OGM2
4) Press 5 to stop recording. Your message is played back to you
5) Press 'tape' symbol to exit.
To check your Out Going Message (OGM)
1) Press 'tape' symbol
2) Press 6 then 2 and the message is played back.

There should be a button that reads "greeting".If there is no button that says "record" or "rec",then just hold down the greeting button and it should prompt you to record.It seems odd though,the digital answering machines usually hold their greeting even when losing power and coming back on.If it currently gives a "computer voice" greeting it should not be a problem.If there is no "computer" greeting,there may be a problem.Good luck.
