Please , could you help me on erase all messages from my 'Premier Dynamic 120' answering machine ? Its memory is full and I do not know how to erase all messages since I lost the user guide .

Hi there!
Try to press the delete key when the phone is in stand-by mode and wait for the voice to say "To delete all messages, press delete again" then press delete again. Each message on you Uniden system should be removed. Lastly confirm the deletion. The answeringmachine should display ")" messages. If not just repeat the process untill the messages are gone.
Hope this helps. Please rate if it works. Thanks

Erased messages - digital recovery?

Sorry, the digital memory can't be restored ones the power is cut or the messages are erased. Some high tech lab somewhere FBI/CIA maybe just maybe could do it but no noting we can do about it.

you can try a old trick of holding down the play button for 10 or more seconds.

I'm really sorry.

Is a way to recover deleted answering machine messages?

The link to the manual:

Have reviewed and it depends on if it was a saved message or if it was just in the in box with all being deleted.

Read the manual carefully.

I accidentally deleted an answer I wanted to hear on an AT&T 1719 answering machine. I read the manual and noticed that messages cannot be recovered. Who makes an answering machine with an "undelete"...

Once you delete a message on a consumer answering machine, it's gone. The only option is to save all messages until the machine signals that it's out of room. Even with a tape-based answering machine or professional voicemail systems, once you erase a message, it's gone.

Conair TAD-1220 Digital answering machine

Background: The TAD1220 does not have a way to manually delete messages. It more or less has a FIFO(FIRST IN-FIRST OUT) method of retaining messages. It will save up to 14 minutes of messages and then they are deleted automatically after you play them back and receive another incoming call.

This is important:
It will only erase the messages AFTER you have listened to them *AND* received another message.

Exception: If you happen to press the STOP/SAVE button, then all of the messages will be RE-SAVED until the memory limit has been reached.

Extreme Solution:
The only manual way is to remove the battery, disconnect the power cord and erase everything. You will then need to reprogram your greeting.

Recovering Deleted Messages on Answering Machine

how do you check my messages from another location?

Messages ALL erased!

The answering machine is supposed to save messages during a power failure. If the messages are gone, then the unit is defective.
