GE 25983 Hangs up after announcement

Instead of allowing the caller to record a message, the phone hangs up immediately after the announcement is completed and gives a dial tone.

How do I change it to accept a message from the caller please?

Thanks,

Bill

Can't elimate the A on the answering machine


Your system is set to "Announce" mode. To allow it to record messages, you need to switch it to "Answer" mode. Enter the model of your VTech system into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

HAVE GE PHONES MODEL NO. 25942J-3C, SERIAL NO. 90557643. HAVE LOST MY USER MANUAL AND NEED TO CHANGE MY ANSWERING MACHINE MESSAGE AND CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO DO SO. HELP.


Here is the answer from the User Guide found on the manufacturers website. for more help go to http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25942EE1_IB.pdf

Recording the Outgoing Announcement

For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone,

and eliminate as much background noise as possible.

1. Make sure the answering system is On2. Press and hold the announce button on the base.

3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.

4. Release the button when you finish your announcement.

NOTE: If you choose not to record an outgoing announcement, a default

announcement plays instead. To return to the default announcement after

you have recorded your own outgoing announcement, press the announce

button and release it when you hear the beep.

Sample Outgoing Announcement

"Hi, this is (use your name here), I can't answer the phone right now, so

please leave your name, number and a brief message after the tone, and
I'll get back to you. Th anks.

The answering machine is not recording messages left by callers. there is an A showing on the screen instead of the number of messages that used to appear on the screen


Without knowing the model of your VTech answering system I can't give you a definite answer, but apparently you have your system set on announce instead of record. Enter the model of your phone into the search box at

Hi,
Here you are...

Recording the Outgoing Announcement
For best results when recording, you should be about nine inches from the microphone, and eliminate as much background noise as possible.
1. Make sure the answering system is ON.
2. Press and hold the announce button on the base until the speaker announces "RECORD ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER TONE".
3. Begin speaking after you hear the beep.
4. Release the announce button when you finish your announcement.
NOTE: If you choose not to record an outgoing announcement, a default announcement plays instead. To return to the default announcement after you have recorded your own outgoing announcement, press the announce button and release it when you hear the beep. Or, press the delete button while the announcement is reviewing.
NOTE: The maximum duration allowed for outgoing message is 2 minutes.

Also, here's a link for your manual..

Not recording


Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only)
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

AT&T 1855 phone with digital answering system


If Announce Only is selected, no messages will be recorded.

When Announce Select is set to "A" and the system answers a call, the caller hears the announcement you recorded, followed by a beep. After the beep, the system begins recording your caller’s message up to three minutes long.

Inaudible announcement


How close were you to the base unit when you recorded the message? The manual suggests 9 inches from your mouth to the mic on the unit. Also speak loudly when you make the recording. Yes, you can re-record the message. In fact, you can record two messages and use whichever one fits your immediate circumstances.
