I called my phone company and they told me that the phone has a short that is causing a problem with my line. My grandmother has one and has the same problem with her phone. My advice do what I'm going to. either return it to the store or get satisfaction from the manufacturer. In other words ditch the sucker.

If this is a new machine, why haven't you contacted AT&T? Sounds like either it's a configuration problem in the answering machine or it's incompatible with your phone line.

1. Too many rings before answering. How can I shorten? 2. Because message is short, how do I bring "beep" closer to my message?

You don't say what brand and model phone or answering machine you have, so I can't give you a step-by-step answer. But here is general information.

The number of rings until the answering machine picks up is controlled on some units by a switch. Most of the time you'll find it on the rear or one of the sides. If it's a cordless phone/answering machine combo, the switch will be on the base unit. These usually have positions for 2 or 4 rings. Some have a "TS" position as well. This is for "toll-saver", which extends the number of rings if there are no new messages. If you call to check message while you're away, if the phone rings more than the number of times you selected you know there aren't any new messages. Then you can hang up before the machine answers and you won't be charged for a call. (This is a hold-over from the days where you might need to make a long-distance call to check your messages. Most people have cell phones with national calling plans now and it doesn't really matter.)

Some newer units have a setup menu where you'll find the ring selection. On a cordless phone the menu button may be on either the base unit or the handset. It depends on the make and model.

On most of today's answering machines, the beep tone is added when you're done recording. Usually you press and hold a button to start the recording, make your announcement, then release the button. The beep is recorded when you let go of the button, so there shouldn't be much delay after the message end. If the beep comes a long time after you finish speaking, either you're not releasing the button, or you have a very old style machine with a fixed recording time. The instructions that came with these usually gave suggested messages that would take the time, and typically had you end with "...please wait for the beep and leave a message".

You can usually find manuals for downloading from the phone or answering machine manufacturer's website, or on one of the many other manual sites on the Internet. Try a search for "(insert your brand and model here) owner's manual" as a start. Of course, if all else fails another option is to get a new machine. Basic models aren't expensive, but if what you have can be made to work the way you want, why spend money?

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

How to operate the answering machine

hi friend,
Step 1Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If you have left the answering machine in the off state then you should let it continue ringing until the machine finally answers, this may be as many as ten rings or more. When the machine finally answers, you may hear a series of beeping sounds.
  • Step 2Press "0" during the playback of the greeting message or during the series of beeps. Enter your PIN code within the next 2 seconds. You must know your PIN code to operate the answering machine remotely.
  • Step 3Wait for the prompt to enter a command code for remote operation. You will hear the machine report the current time and how many messages are in memory. The machine will then play a beep and wait for your command. To turn on the answering machine you must enter the corresponding code. You must enter the remote command within 15 seconds.
  • Step 4Hang up after the machine finishes the command and beeps. Call back to your number and make sure that the machine is now in the on state and will answer incoming calls.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Each brand and manufacturer of answering machines have different commands and PIN codes for the answering machines. Refer to your user manual for the exact codes and instructions on how to pick your PIN number for your phone.

    How to access messages remotely

    While you are away from your home or
    office, you can use a touch-tone phone,
    or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
    tone dialer (available through your local
    RadioShack store) to enter your PIN and
    do any of the following:
    • set the phone to answer or not
    answer calls
    • listen to your messages
    • record a new outgoing message
    • erase messages
    • monitor the room where the phone
    is located
    • You cannot remotely operate the
    phone using its handset or another
    telephone on the same line as the
    • You can also listen to the message
    recorded on Line 2 by making a call
    to Line 1’s number (or vice versa).
    If RING TIME is set to TS (toll-saver),
    (see “Setting the Number of Rings” on
    Page 15), the phone answers after three
    rings if you have new messages (ones
    you have not listened to). If there are no
    new messages, the phone answers after
    five rings. This gives you time to hang
    up before the phone answers so you
    can avoid unnecessary long-distance
    Note: Toll-saver works only on the line
    you called. If Line 1 has no new messages,
    but Line 2 has one, the telephone
    answers after five rings when you
    call Line 1.
    Follow these steps to operate the phone
    from a remote location.
    Note: If you wait more than 15 seconds
    between keypresses, the phone sounds
    a long beep and hangs up.
    1. Dial your phone number and wait for
    the phone to answer.
    2. If the phone is not set to answer
    calls, it answers after about 10 rings
    and sounds a series of beeps.
    3. When the outgoing message begins
    (or the phone sounds a series of
    beeps), press #, then enter your PIN
    within 2 seconds.
    If the PIN is correct, the phone announces
    the day and time, then it announces
    the number of new and old messages.
    The phone plays all new messages,
    then beeps about every two seconds to
    let you know it is ready to accept remote
    • If the phone does not respond, try
    entering your PIN again. If you enter
    an incorrect PIN three times, the
    phone beeps and hangs up.
    Remote Operation 27
    • When the phone is operating from a remote location, it stops all answering functions
    and rC appears on the display on the base. The phone resumes answering
    functions when it is no longer in remote operation, if you have not turned it off.
    • The remote playback of incoming messages is limited to 4 minutes. If you have
    more messages after 4 minutes have passed, you must press # 2 again to listen
    to the rest of the messages.
    • When using remote operation, you can only delete the current message during
    playback. You cannot delete all the messages stored at one time.
    The following table shows the remote commands you can use.
    Note: Remote operation stops when someone picks up the handset and presses either
    LINE 1 or LINE 2 (whichever is flashing), or any phone on the same phone line.
    Remote Commands
    Press #
    then (within
    2 seconds:
    Repeat current message during playback.
    2 Play messages.
    3 Skip current message during playback.
    4 Delete current message during playback.
    5 Stop playback, recording, and room monitoring.
    6 Set the phone to answer or not answer calls.
    7 Record or stop recording a new outgoing message.
    8 Play the outgoing message.
    9 Switch to the other line (Line 1 or Line 2).
    0 Monitor the room where the phone is located for 15 seconds

    Incoming faxes not received, all else works.

    Hi there,

    It is your phone answering machine that must pick up in three rings or less.

    Therefore 4 is too much. I would not limit number for fax machine itself.

    On receipt of fax sometimes seems like it will not work when answering machine picks up in the middle. However, leave it and it will work. Sometimes sender will hear your answering machine and cancel as well. So try to ensure they don't give up at other end as well.

    Good Luck!

    Your question is not clear enough, You can check it out in the user manual. I just guess you are asking recording your personal annoucement.

    Before using this answering system, you
    should record the announcement (up to
    one minute long) that callers will hear
    when the system answers a call. If you
    choose not to record an announcement,
    the system answers with a prerecorded
    announcement: “Hello. Please leave a
    message after the tone.”
    1 Press and hold "Annc/Skip". The system
    beeps. Speak toward the microphone
    normally, from about nine inches away.
    While you are recording, the Message
    Window displays —.
    2 To stop recording, release "Annc/Skip".
    The system automatically plays back
    your announcement.
    To review your announcement, press
    and release "Annc/Skip".

    Got new phone, answering machine dead?

    There is no two horizontal lines error description in user manual.

    Based on my experience, I think, maybe it is related to parrellel phone dectection. ATT 1717 already think, the system is busy or in use. The line voltage is too low when you hook up other phone.
    Your house phone line maybe far from switch (3km to 5km).
