I know this is a very old topic....

According to the 1715's manual, the "F" means that the memory is full. Try erasing some stored messages and see if that helps.

Here is the link to the 1715's User Manual

I have an answering machine AT&T 1715, but miss the cord power, could you please tell how many amps need and voltage too


Check the bottom of your answering machine. It should have the required power adapter listed. At least my answering machine had a nice clear label.

My 1337 AT&T answering machine uses the DAS-2 power adapter. This outputs 9V 780mA. Googling the adapter number I found that the Lucent 1715 also uses the DAS-2 adapter. (The Lucent is probably identical to the AT&T but check your machine.)

I found a used one here: http://cgi.ebay.com/LUCENT-TECHNOLOGIES-DAS-2-TELEPHONE-POWER-UNIT-9-VAC-/250730379907 . There may be other e-bay sellers with the item.

I hope this helps.

My folks (elderly) have a Lucent AS40/AT&T 1715 which for reasons unknown is displaying "F1" and beeping. What is the fix?


Hello,

I will advice you try to reset the device, once the device is reset, the problem should be fix, just reset the device to fix the problem.

Take care.

What is Lucent 7 Cabling?


Lucent 7 cabling *probably* refers to level 7 Lucent cable. It's old!! There are two issues in the question of, "What is Lucent 7 cable?" Here's the history: Lucent was a division spun off by AT&T back in the mid 1990's. Then Lucent actually spun off Avaya and sent their structured cabling business with it (they had named the cabling brand "Systimax" by that time. CommScope bought Avaya back in 2004, so Lucent's Systimax brand of cabling is 2 generations out dated. It's still probably okay, but not worth today's money for new Systimax products made by CommScope.

Now for the 7 issue: there was no talk of category 7 (cat 7) back when Lucent was making cable, but Anixter, a data cable distributor, rates cabling with their own proprietary system called "Levels". Therefore, Level 7 cabling is an Anixter measure and many people have bought from Anixter long enough that they ask for level 7 [brand whatever] cable.

Use it if it's low cost. Otherwise, don't let someone sell Lucent branded-cable as the same as today's cable. There were version upgrades since then. The print on the cable jacket will say 1071C or 2071C or something like that. Today, they are on version E, not C.

Hope it's kind of clear. My guess is the cable is about 10 years old, although some data folks are stuck in their ways and still refer to today's Systimax cable as Lucent cable.

I want to setup my Lucent AS40 answering machine


I had a problem recently when I looked online to find the manual for this model and a similar model, and thankfully I was able to solve the mystery and locate it. Even though the answering machine says it is a Lucent AS40, the correct user manual for it is the manual for the AT&T 1715. Once I figured this out, it was super easy to locate the manual on AT&T’s website... and sure enough, these two products are identical!!!

The user manual for the AS40 can be found at http://telephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/161/1715_manual.pdf

I figured this out when I ran across an old article discussing a joint venture between Lucent Technologies (AT&T) and Philips Electronics. Apparently the two companies decided to merge together and combine their resources to develop technologically advanced answering machines. After the products were developed, each company marketed them under their name with a different model number, but both were selling the same thing! The reason we couldn’t find the user manual for the Philips model is because Lucent (AT&T) has the manuals!

In case this might help someone, I own two of these answering machines and can vouch that the user manual for the Lucent AS40 is the same as the AT&T 1715 and the Philips AD2735 is the same as the AT&T 1725. Here are the models that were produced during the joint venture:

AT&T/ Lucent 1715 = Lucent/ AT&T AS40
AT&T/ Lucent 1725 = Philips AD2735
AT&T/ Lucent 1717 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 1815 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 1825 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 7625 = ?
AT&T/ Lucent 7630 = ?
