KX-TG5621C changing number of rings

The KX-TG5621 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you answer, some answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up.

To change the ring count on your answering machine, refer to the documentation for that answering machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.

I can not locate how to limit the number of rings; and the answering machine does not come on even after 20 rings; I can hear my message recording- when I play it back; but it does not come on for incoming...

Ring count You can change the number of times the phone rings before the unit answers calls. The default setting is "4 rings". "Toll saver": The unit answers on the 2nd ring when new messages have been recorded, and on the 4th ring when there are no new messages. If you call your phone from outside to listen to new messages, you will know that there are no new messages when the phone rings for the 3rd time. You can then hang up without being charged for the call.

When people leave me a message - the answering machine does not show that I have a message. The person calling hears the greeting - leaves a message, but I do not receive the message.

It may be similar to the problem I had on wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first.

Would like to increase number of rings before answering machine comes on.

Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.
  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.

I have philips landline phones. My main phone does not ring or flash when an incoming call comes in. I t won't go onto answer phone either it just rings out. I can pick it up and answer the call. i can...

Looks like the basic functions of the phone are correct. Remain the answering machine. Are you sure it can act as an answering machine?
If it can act as answering machine the reason it is not doing so may be the following.
  1. Answering function is turned OFF
  2. Answering function may be ON but the number of rings before it answers is set too high.
I suggest you try the following
Call you phone. Let it ring at least 10 times. If it can act as an answering machine it will pick up the phone and read the welcome message, because most answering machines (the recent ones at least) answer after 10 rings even if answering function is turned OFF.

The phones that can be answering machines usually do have a display that shows the number of incoming messages, or a LED that flashes to let you know that you have new recorded messages.

How to operate the answering machine

hi friend,
Step 1Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If you have left the answering machine in the off state then you should let it continue ringing until the machine finally answers, this may be as many as ten rings or more. When the machine finally answers, you may hear a series of beeping sounds.
  • Step 2Press "0" during the playback of the greeting message or during the series of beeps. Enter your PIN code within the next 2 seconds. You must know your PIN code to operate the answering machine remotely.
  • Step 3Wait for the prompt to enter a command code for remote operation. You will hear the machine report the current time and how many messages are in memory. The machine will then play a beep and wait for your command. To turn on the answering machine you must enter the corresponding code. You must enter the remote command within 15 seconds.
  • Step 4Hang up after the machine finishes the command and beeps. Call back to your number and make sure that the machine is now in the on state and will answer incoming calls.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); }); Tips & Warnings
    • Each brand and manufacturer of answering machines have different commands and PIN codes for the answering machines. Refer to your user manual for the exact codes and instructions on how to pick your PIN number for your phone.

    I have a discontinued phone and have lost the instruction book and need to figure out why the fax machine is not letting the answering machine pick up.

    you have both the fax machine and the answering machine on the same phone line.
    The fax machine and the answering machine are set to answer in a certain number of rings.
    In your case the fax machine is set to answer the line in less rings than the answering machine. You have to increase the number of rings of your fax so that the answering machine will work.

    How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely

    Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

    Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
    During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
    The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
    Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.
