GE phone/answering machine model#27995GE1-A

We had a power outage in town and after it my answering machine wasn't working so I unpluged it all and tried to get it to work. Now it only speaks spanish which is a problem since I'm not nor do I know what the lady is saying and people calling me are hanging up and not leaving me a message.

Do you know how to reset it. I've played with it for 2 weeks and can't get it. Very frustrating!!!!!
Let me know.

SOURCE: To turn the blue light off

What worked for me was to call my phone and leave a voicemail. I then retrieved and deleted my voicemail which reset my handsets.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: Phone won't hang up

I solved this exactly problem by doing this:
1) unplug base station from phone line
2) unplug base station from power cube
3) open each phone and disconnect battery (do not replace phone in charger; just let it sit)
4) wait 30 minutes (per instructions from Uniden)
5) reconnect batteries in phone sets
6) reconnect power cube to base station
7) reconnect base station to phone line
8) test: make a call. Hang up. Wait one minute. Pick up line and see if you get a dial tone.
(Basically you're "rebooting" the system. You don't know where the fault lies, so you power down every component to make sure you get it. The '30 minutes' is longer than I'm used to, but after being on hold with Uniden tech support for 20 minutes and finally getting through, the instructions from them were very clear: AT LEAST 30 minutes. OK! I did it - and it worked!)

Model 29827A...old phone but the one my mom is used to. The answering machine won't come on and the light is not on. Just changed battery not too long ago.

A power outage may have shut the answering machine off.
On mine there is a program button. I can turn my answering machine on or off, how many rings before it starts. If you do not know how to access the phones programs, try unplugging the little square transformer plugged in the electric wall socket and plug it back in.
The phone may tell you how to reset the functions.
Worth a try.

I have a GE cordless phone and answering machine, model 27995GE1-A, and finally found where to get a new battery for it. When it is fully charged, is it better to leave on the charger or off, when not in...

Newer phones don't have the battery problems of old. Just to be safe I would leave the phone off the charger after the first call. Put it on the charger when you go to bed.
