    I have the same issue with Ablinking along with CL, The A just started recently and the caller is not able to leave a message.

    Can't get messages, A stays on in window.

  • canaanyouths Dec 30, 2008

    It just shows CL blinking all the time. We only have messages that say "Power Failure" in an automated voice and there haven't been any power failures. No one else is able to leave a message now.

    Callers cannot leave message - tells them "I'm sorry, but the person you called did not activate the voice messaging service". I already put my recording message in - why won't it take???

Sounds like you have been hacked. You should change your pass word and if you had a question. Change it as well. When you change your password use some capital letters as well as small case letters and put some numbers in as well. do not use common words as hackers can figure them out as well.

Tap the letter or number and display shows the letter or number directly below.


This is due to a miscalibration of the touchscreen. The touchscreen needs to be recalibrated. A procedure can be found here:

Press the 4 key 3 times for the letter I. Press the 5 key 3 times for the letter L. Press the 5 key 3 times for the second letter L, and press the 1 key to insert a space between the first and last name.

If the memory location you selected is not empty, OVERWRITE? will show in the display. Press the STORE button again to confirm the current record and overwrite the old one or press the EXIT button to select another location.
7. To enter another name and number in a different memory location, return to step 1 and repeat the process.

Problem with entering anti-theft radio code for Honda Fit: The radio screen says: "Enter Code:" I enter the confirmed correct code, but when doing so when the actual code (all numbers) turn into letters or...


when you use the "preset keys" (the keys on the radio with numbers on them) to enter the code, each time you press a code number, a letter appears [c, o, d, e]. once the word is spelled out, from entering the correct 5 digits, the radio is reset, ready to go.

BUT if you miss a number, enter a wrong number, whatever, each number pressed, still makes a letter appear from the word "code". once the word is spelled out, by entering ANY 5 numbers, if ANY of the 5 is wrong, the radio displays a message "Error" and then a number 1 thru 10.

When you see the word "Error..."

the next preset button you push, starts the whole thing over again. The radio says "Enter code". That is when you enter the 1st of the 5 digits, the letter C appears, enter the next digit, the letter O appears, enter the next digit, the letter D appears, enter the last digit, the letter E apperas, the radio is reset, ready to go, if you got the 5 correct numbers entered.

you have 10 chances to enter the right 5 digit code. Each wrong try of 5 digits yeilds a display of "Error 1", "Error 2", "Error 3", etc 'till you get to 10 incorrect tries of 5 digits each.

If you dont get it right in 10 tries, you have to leave the radio "on" for an hour, then it will let you start the 10 tries over again.

Good luck!

Cant see the lost call numbers


Hmmm. One can filter the display of various types of phone calls. Check your setting for the Messages log.

1. Open "Messages"
2. Open the "Full Menu"
3. Select "Options" (this is specific to messages, not the "Options" from the main menu which is for the phone in general).
4. Scroll through all the display filters and options and you should find the one you want.

or

1. Messages
2. Menu
3. View Folder
4. this allows you to view various types of calls.

Good luck.

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.
