Press and hold the "skip" button for at least 2 seconds and the phone will announce "English". Then all menu items will be in english.

Answering machine is in spanish not english


According to the manual, you hold the SKIP button down for 2 seconds and it reverts back to English. (Don't hold it down again or it's Espanol time).

My answering machine

I think I found a solution. On my phone model 27996GE3-A, I unplugged the phone for a few seconds, plugged it back in and waited until the display showed the number of messages and then I pressed the "skip" and "review" buttons at the same time and then it announced the the language changed to english. Hope this helps.

The solution for the base (not the handset) is to press and hold for 2 seconds the "Skip" button (it's marked with ">>").

I have 27996 phones too. I lost my manual. Here is the website to get the manual. At the bottom type in 27996 and it will bring up a pdf file that you can download to your computer. Here are the directions for your problem. Display Language 1. Press the FLASH/program button until 1ENG 2FRA 3ESP shows in the display. 2. Use the CID/VOL (left or right arrow) button or the handset number pad to select 1 (English), 2 (French), or 3 (Spanish). The default setting is ?1ENG?. 3. Press the FLASH/program button to confirm and to advance to the next menu feature.
