Question about Motorola Mobility C51 SD7561 Phone

2 Answers

Wrong Day When a call comes in the wrong date is stamped on the message.  I have tried to reset the day but it keeps reverting back to the wrong day.  Usually, two or three days earlier. Any advice on correcting that? Thanks, Bob

Re: Wrong Day - Motorola Mobility C51 SD7561 Phone Phones

Unplug the phone until it gets to that day?

Re: Wrong Day

If the date is correct, but the answering machine has the wrong day of the week, it is because the year is not set properly on the base. 
When a call comes in, assuming you have caller id, the phone receives the month and day from the phone company. But in order to figure out if its Tuesday, Wednesday, etc, the phone needs to know the year.
The phone was shipped with the year set to whatever year the phone was manufactured in - perhaps 2006. Once it is the next year, the user must go into the menu and manually change the year to the correct year. 
On the 7561 I believe you would use a handset, select Menu and go to Setup Devices and select Base and go from there.

Wrong day on our NEC DTerm 80 phone system?

You may have to advance the day setting from Thursday to Wednesday. Also, the day of the week may depend upon the date setting so you may have to set everything from the beginning.

I need to change day of week on Uniden Dect 6.0

in the user manual it reads ---date and time menu
use the menu to select the clock ( if you have caller ID, the phone sets the date and time automatically)
enter the date and time, select AM or PM use CID/RIGHT to move the cursor past a digit without changing it
to confirm, press MENU/SELECT
to get a wrong day of the week it can only happen if the wrong year is appearing because if you want Jan 30 2016 it will come up as Saturday but if the year is 2015 it will have the wrong day for the 30 Jan

RCA 25205 wont answer correctly

Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

Time and date

I'm almost positive there's nothing wrong with your phone "ssandra". You set the day/time/year etc. on the base (answering machine) separately from the handset . . . you press a series of buttons. I've done it several times, but now after a move I can't remember how you do it, and I can't find the instructions I had. That's actually why I was on this forum (looking for the instructions). Since you posted your question last year, this probably can't help you now. But I thought I'd answer anyway . . .
