Greeting was somehow erased

My husband's greeting on kxtm150b answering machine has somehow been erased and the stsandard greeting is now playing. The record button has not been pushed---it may have taken a code over the phone after I checked messages as I waqs hanging up. I did not record any new greeting. (My husband recently passed away & it is very important to me to recover that greeting) Since nothing was recorded over it IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET IT BACK?

Re: greeting was somehow erased

Hi Sherrie, I am sorry to hear about your husband, I will do what I can to help. I am fairly confident on that model that if you push the greeting button, then delete it will erase the message for good. Also, if the memory power failed, then it would reset to the default greeting and erase all messages and greetings. However, if the unit has options for multiple greetings (ie. default greeting, greeting 1, greeting 2, etc., then perhaps the default greeting may have been selected, while your husbands greeting is still there but is recorded under say greeting number 1. If that is the case, you can select it to play his greeting instead of the default greeting to have it play. I would find out for you but my computer is having trouble opening the manual on the Panasonic site, so here is the link. Look under "greetings" in the index. Hope I helped. Thanks, CG

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message

Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

Wanted to know if i can check messages by calling in

CLICK HERE for the user manual.

The following is on Page 19....

You can access your answerer from any touch-tone phone
by entering your 4-digit security code (the default security
code is 0123). The remote functions do not work with rotary
or push-button pulse-dialing phones. You can cut out the
wallet-size remote card near the back of the User’s Guide
so you know the touch-tone commands when you're
picking up messages from another location.
To access your answerer:
1. Call your telephone number.
2. After you hear the beep that follows the greeting,
enter your 4-digit security code. To bypass the
greeting, you can enter your 4-digit security code at
any time while the greeting is playing.
3. The unit plays the remote menu after the correct
security code has been entered. Menu selections can
be made at any time while the menu is playing.

NOTE: The unit answers on the 10th ring when it is
turned off or the memory is full. To access the
answerer, enter the 4-digit security code after the
beep. If memory is full, play messages and erase
some of them to restore memory. If the answerer is
off, press 2 to turn it on.
NOTE: After the unit plays the remote menu, it will
wait several seconds for a command, then disconnect

Also, it should be noted that if you're reading tajen's excellent answer and saying to yourself: "3 digit code...???"

If you've never programmed one your default code is 123.
