How do I retrieve Voicemail messages? There's a red light blinking. I need to know what to do next. Thanks.


you said voicemail, which is a service from the telephone provider. Typically, you dial your own number and follow the prompts. Contact your service provider if this does not work. It is NOT the phone.

Displaying "message" but not message in voicemail


THis is usually because it thinks that there is something there, but the code path to 'clear it" doesn't follow the same logic path. Sometimes, adding a new message - i.e. dial your number from elsewhere, to create a real message waiting, and then clearing that, resets this.

Change voice mail message from one person to another person


Step 1 Lift the handset for your telephone and listen for the dial tone. Dial the access code you were given by Verizon when you signed up for residential telephone service. Dialing the access code will call the voicemail system. If you do not have an access code, you will need to call Verizon Customer Servicemag-glass_10x10.gif (see link in Resources).
  • Step 2 Identify the telephone number you are setting up voicemail services for. If you are calling from that telephone number, enter the temporary passcode and then press "#." The temporary passcode is the last 4 digits of your residential telephone number. If you are calling from a different phone, press "*" when the system greeting starts to play, then enter the 10-digit telephone number when prompted. After this, you will be asked to input the temporary passcode.
  • Step 3 Choose a new passcode. The passcode must be from 4 to 8 digits in length. It should be easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. Do not use easy to guess numbers, such as 1234 or 1111. Also do not re-enter the same temporary passcode, since it will be easy for anyone to guess.
  • Step 4 Record your name. Simply say your name, without a long complicated message. This recording is used by the voicemail system to identify you whenever you forward a message to another user. It is not used as the standard greeting when a caller is directed to your voicemail to leave a message.
  • Step 5 Record or change your personal greeting. This greeting is played any time someone reaches your voicemail box. Record a friendly greeting to announce that you are unavailable and will return all calls upon your return.
    Decide if you want to set up a different mailbox for each family member. Verizon residential telephone service allows you to set up multiple mailboxes so that everyone can have his own private message center. Callers who reach voicemail will be prompted to press "1" to leave a message for one person, press "2" for the next person, and so on.
  • Step 6 Hang up the telephone. When you have finished setting up the voicemail system on your Verizon residential phone line, hang up the phone to end the call and exit the voicemail system.

    Notification when fax arrives


    In the 90s, cell phone companies and pager companies use to provide a seperate phone number answered by a computer that you could dial with your computer modem which would page/text a specific device you specified.

    Most cell phone companies no longer offer this service.

    WinFax/TalkWorks can notify your pager or cellular phone (using SMS messaging) whenever new faxes or voice messages arrive.

    WinFax/TalkWorks works with Tone Only, Numeric, Personalized Numeric, and Alphanumeric pagers. To use the pager notification feature, you must know:

    1.the capabilities of your pager/cellular phone
    2. the telephone numbers WinFax/TalkWorks must dial to connect to your service provider
    3. your personal identification number (if your pager supports this feature)

    Cannot receive faxes


    Step one: Check the fax number
    Make sure the fax number is correct; include any numbers that you have to dial to use the telephone, such as an area code, access codes for outside lines or long-distance services, and so on. If you have to dial a particular sequence of numbers to make a telephone call from that telephone line, you also have to dial that sequence of numbers to send a fax.
    If the issue is resolved, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the number is correct, continue to the next step.
    Step two: Dial the number manually
    Instead of using a speed dial setting or sending the fax from the computer, dial the number manually from the product control panel.
    If the fax sends when you dial the number from the control panel, follow these steps to recreate the speed dial setting and insert pauses in the number.
    On the product control panel, press the Setup button.
    Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) until Speed Dial Setup appears on the control panel display, and then press the OK button.
    Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) until Individual Speed Dial appears on the control panel display, and then press the OK button.
    Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) to select an unassigned speed dial entry, and then press the OK button.
    Use the product keypad to enter any numbers that must be inserted before the fax number, such as an area code or access codes for outside lines or long-distance services, and then press the Redial/Pause button to insert a pause.
    Enter the rest of the fax number, using the Redial/Pause button to insert pauses between the numbers, and then press the OK button.
    Enter the name of the speed dial setting, and then press the OK button to save the speed dial setting.
    Try to send the fax again.
    If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
    Step three: Run a fax diagnostic test
    Press the On button ( ) to turn on the product, and then make sure the product is correctly connected to the telephone jack.
    Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
    On the product control panel, press 6 , and then press 6 again.
    This selects the Tools menu and then selects Run Fax Test .
    The fax diagnostic test page prints.
    Review the results of the test.
    If the result of the fax diagnostic test is All Pass , skip to Step four: Reinitialize the fax.
    If the result of the fax diagnostic test is a failure, a page prints that describes the issue and offers possible solutions. Follow the solutions on the printout.
    If the solutions on the printout resolve the issue, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the solutions on the printout do not resolve the issue, continue to the next step.
    Step four: Reinitialize the fax
    While the product is on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and from the electrical outlet.
    Make sure that the telephone cord is fully inserted into the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the product.
    Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then connect the power cord to the electrical outlet.
    When the product is in the ready state, try to send and receive a fax again.
    If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
    Step five: Test the send/receive functions
    Use the product keypad to send a fax. Watch the product control panel display and listen to the sounds the product makes.
    If the product is working correctly, the following events occur.
    When the product begins to dial, a dial tone is audible, followed by the sound of the product dialing. A Dialing message appears on the control panel display.
    When the receiving fax answers the call, the product and the fax exchange tones. A Connecting message appears on the control panel display. During this phase, the product and the fax compare capabilities, exchange information about how to send the fax, and try to establish a reliable transmission speed.
    After the connection is established, the product sends the pages of the document. Messages appear on the control panel display that indicate the status, such as Sending page 1 .
    Review the results of the fax.
    If the fax is transmitted successfully, continue to the next step.
    If there is no audible dial tone or the receiving fax does not answer the call, try sending the fax to a different destination. If this second attempt also fails, continue to the next step.
    If the receiving fax answers the call and begins beeping, but the Connecting message does not appear on the product control panel display, the product is not detecting the tones from the receiving fax. Continue to the next step.
    Step six: Use an analog telephone service
    HP Fax and All-in-One products are designed to work with analog telephone services and might experience some difficulties when they are connected to phone lines with digital services. Make sure the product is connected to an analog telephone service.
    To obtain digital services information or support, contact the telephone service provider or system administrator.
    Step seven: Check the phone cord and fax connections
    Disconnect the telephone cord, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure the cord only has two wires.
    Figure 1: Telephone cord with two wires
    Figure 2: Telephone cord with four wires
    If the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire telephone cord.
    If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
    Make sure the fax is connected directly to the telephone jack by a telephone cord. Connect the cord to the 1-Line port on the back of the product.
    Figure 3: Fax only
    1 - Telephone jack
    2 - Telephone line
    3 - 1-Line
    4 - 2-Ext
    If other devices need to use the same telephone jack, make sure they are connected to the 2-Ext port on the back of the product.
    Connect a single-line telephone to 2-Ext , and then pick up the receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure you are able to dial out using the telephone keypad. If you hear a dial tone and are able to dial out using the phone, the product is properly connected to a working telephone cord and telephone jack.
    Figure 4: Fax and telephone
    1 - Telephone jack
    2 - Telephone line
    3 - 1-Line
    4 - 2-Ext
    5 - Telephone
    Figure 5: Fax and PC or modem
    1 - Telephone jack
    2 - Telephone line
    3 - 1-Line
    4 - 2-Ext
    5 - PC or modem
    If you change any cable connections, try sending and receiving a fax again to make sure that the issue is resolved.
    If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
    Step eight: Remove any other devices from the telephone line
    If any other devices, such as a telephone, an answering machine, or a modem, are connected to the telephone line, remove each device.
    NOTE: Remove each device even if it is in another room, connected to another telephone jack, or connected using a line splitter.
    Connect the product to an analog telephone line by connecting one end of the two-wire telephone cord directly to the telephone jack and then connecting the other end of the telephone cable directly to the 1-Line port on the back of the product.
    Try to send a fax again.
    If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
    Step nine: Perform a partial reset of the product
    A partial reset of the product returns all fax settings to the default values. It might be necessary to reset the language and country/region settings after the partial reset is complete.
    Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
    Wait 20 seconds, and then press and hold # and 3 on the product control panel.
    Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then release the buttons when the product turns on.
    The product is reset to factory defaults.
    Try to send and receive faxes again. If the problem still exists, continue to the next step.
    Step ten: Service the product
    If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.
