Question about GE 28111 Cordless Phone

2 Answers

I can not get my phone to pick up on the answering system when a caller is trying to leave a message

I bought this phone for my husband and I for Christmas and when we were testing the new system out we noticed we have not been able to leave a message on the answering machine. I have followed all the steps, and for whatever reason I can not figure this one out. It says to choose an announcement for my outgoing message in the directions. "PRESS AND RELEASE THE ANNOUNCE 1 OR ANNOUNCE 2 BUTTON TO REVIEW AND SELECT THIS ONE AS YOUR OUTGOING ANNOUNCEMENT". Did that and when my phone rings it does not go into my new outgoing message and does not leave a message from a caller.

Try looking underneath the console of the answering machine. You must turn the answerer on on most machines and underneath there may be a switch to determine how many rings before it picks up as well.

    Hmm...also check around the edges. Otherwise there may be an audio option through the menu where you set your message as to how to turn the answerer on. What phone and model is it?

    I looked at the specs for your phone. On the base below the Memo button is an Answerer On/Off button. This is turned on correct?

    The instructions say it this way:
    Press the ans on/off button to turn the answering system on and off.
    The Message Counter indicator lights when the answering system is on. The indicator blinks when you have new messages.
    NOTE: The answering system displays “- -” when it is off.

    Hope this helps.

I just bought a Radio Shack 43-3829 telephone answering machine. What does a caller need to do to send a message to a specific mail box? Right now all messages are going to the general mail box.


To put the message in a specific mail box, the caller needs to press *1, *2 or *3 (touch tone phone) before leaving their message. (Of course the answering system has to pick up before the key stroke.) Obviously the number corresponds to the mail box that will get the message.

So if you want to include these directions in your outgoing message, you would need to add something like "To leave a message for John press Star 1, for Sam press Star 2" when you record the ogm.

The manual for the answering system is available from Radio Shack. See http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2257360#tabsetBasic . The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/ProductManuals/4303829_PM_EN.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Callers cannot leave a message when I am on the phone.


caller id does not work when you are on the phone. You have to have teh line open, caller ID is only one line and only allows you to switch back and forth, the answering machine is not hearing teh call only you are.

Answering system and fax do not operate together


You want to change a timer on a fax machine to ring more times before it picks up.

The pre recorded message on the answering machine has been lost.


I read thru the manual. There is nothing bout recovery of factory messages. If you recorded your own, try deleting it. Or unplug the base from power and try a reset. This is from the manual. At the end, I gave you a link to the manual!

Using a pre-recorded greeting
message
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a prerecorded
greeting message for callers
and asks them to leave messages. If the
message recording time (page 39) is set
to “Greeting only”, caller messages
are not recorded and the unit plays a
different pre-recorded greeting message
asking callers to call again.

Caller cannot leave a message & the letter A is showing on the recorder


Your system is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer". Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech answering system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download a copy of the manual to learn how to switch the mode.
