27958GE1-A Answerer button will not turn on answering machine

When I push the answerer button, the answering machine will not turn on and when I press the memo key for more instructions I do not get any more instructions. Is there a key or button sequence to enable the answering machine? Speakerphone and caller ID functions work fine.

Many thanks!

    I have the same problem, but it also is causing a crackling sound all the time now, too.  Also, my callers cannot leave a message since this problem occurred.

NOTE: Language can only be set when the user is in physical access of the unit. When you are running in Remote Access mode, the language cannot be changed and will remain in the language you’ve previously set.10
Setting the Time/Day : This setting allows you to set the current time and day for the Time/Day stamp attached to each message.
Hour : 1. When you have completed setting the Language, the unit will enter the TIME/DAY menu. The answering system announces, "Time (the current time and day setting) To set hour, press next...press set to continue."
2. To change the hour, press and release the NEXT or PREVIOUS button and the answering system announces an hour, such as "12am, 1am, 2am," or "12am, 11pm, 10pm."

Wanted to know if i can check messages by calling in


CLICK HERE for the user manual.

The following is on Page 19....

REMOTE ACCESS
You can access your answerer from any touch-tone phone
by entering your 4-digit security code (the default security
code is 0123). The remote functions do not work with rotary
or push-button pulse-dialing phones. You can cut out the
wallet-size remote card near the back of the User’s Guide
so you know the touch-tone commands when you're
picking up messages from another location.
To access your answerer:
1. Call your telephone number.
2. After you hear the beep that follows the greeting,
enter your 4-digit security code. To bypass the
greeting, you can enter your 4-digit security code at
any time while the greeting is playing.
3. The unit plays the remote menu after the correct
security code has been entered. Menu selections can
be made at any time while the menu is playing.

NOTE: The unit answers on the 10th ring when it is
turned off or the memory is full. To access the
answerer, enter the 4-digit security code after the
beep. If memory is full, play messages and erase
some of them to restore memory. If the answerer is
off, press 2 to turn it on.
NOTE: After the unit plays the remote menu, it will
wait several seconds for a command, then disconnect
