    I am having the same problems with mine. Just bought it and it will not record a message. Tried to get support from the GE website and when I entered all my info and clicked submit, it said webpage could not be found.

    I am having the same problem and I suspect it has something to do with my DSL line, but I can't find anything about it on the web.

    Do not have DSL but our 29875GE1-B intermittently does not record messages.

    Machine worked fine for 2 weeks and then just stopped recording messages. I have unplugged machine (according to manual) to reset (have done this twice) and that didn't work. Have also tried to re-set using "next" button and "stop/set" button numerous times. That didn't work either.

    Just stopped working after 2-3 years. Everything else is as before. I've not turned the option off and the outgoing message works. Battery and mains power is fine. Any ideas anyone?

GE 29878GE2-B Digital Messaging System. Does not record any of my messages anymore. System gets cut off after about 2 seconds while other party is trying to leave me a message. I have done a reset and changed the battery, still not working.

Instruction Manual


GE Digital Messaging System ~ Voice/Time/Day stamp
1a] press and hold down STOP/set button and wait for promps.....
ie. press NEXT to change Day stamp and then SET to pick.
ie. press NEXT to change Hour and SET to pick.
ie. press NEXT to change Minute and SET to pick.
1b] press NEXT to pick 1minute allowance recording for recieving messages coming in, or 2 minutes or 3 minutes or 4 minutes. This machine only has 1/2 hour of recording time, so maybe you can 'tell' -record- that and let incoming callers know they have only minutes and machine will automatically shut off and cut them off [hang-up] on them.
2] press and hold down Greeting button and follow promps to change the answering machine voice promps to your own voice. Machine will automatically PLAY BACK your voice, if you don't like what you hear, press and hold down Greeting button again and try again.
~ hope all above helps.

GE 29875GE1 - Deleted Voicemail Retrieval


I have the same machine. There is no way to retreive it. You may be able to pay someone a lot of money to some how extract it off the chip but it would have to be a really important message and even then I do not know for sure if it is possible.

Maybe your memory is full. If it's full, it won't save the messages.
