Re: Using answering machine w/phone

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.

Why won't the answering machine, when set to 'answer on' not record a message?.It goes to voice mail. Is my machine defective?

Maybe the answering machine is set to pick up at say"5 rings" and the voice mail is set to pickup at "4 rings" . Change the voicemail setting to a higher setting than the answering machine. That may be the problem.

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.

    Uniden Dect 6.0, the base keeps beeping

    You have your answering machine set up to beep when you get a new message. Go through the menu for setting up the answering machine and turn that feature off.

    External Answering Machine Hook up with M7310

    Even though the plug that plugs into the wall on an M-7310 looks like the same plug that the answering machine has, it's function is completely different. The information passed on the single pair of wires is enough to make a 24 button 10 button or 8 button system phone work, has no ringing voltage or dial tone for a single line device like your answering machine.

    A Nortel system has ports that have that information, but most likely the answering machine was installed BEFORE the phone system lines, which means it only answered the first line.

    Try plugging your answering machine into the EXACT location it was before.

    Some unanswered calls go on, the machine as a constant beeping sound. These are from #s like: out of area and some random calls. These go on for an unlimited time and it's extremely annoying. How to...

    Questions like these are tough to answer because you only asked half a question. I'll take a stab at it :-)

    I'm guessing that you're using a cheap (ie AT&T) answering machine and the call is abandoned but the extension plays a busy tone. The fix is to buy a better answering machine, use Panasonic VM, or get a product from Viking Electronics called a CPC-1.

    All 3 of these solutions are going to listen for that beep-beep-beep and disconnect.

    Hope this helps.

    Increase the # of rings before the fax picks up so that it's greater than the # of rings before the answering machine picks up. When you're expecting a fax, turn off the answering machine.

    How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely

    Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

    Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
    During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
    The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
    Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.
