Question about GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine

Open Question

Callers are not able to leave a message-they receive msg saying the voice has not been set up yet.

I had another answering machine, set it up, when calls came in, the caller was not able to leave messages. So I returned that machine, bought this GE one. Set it up, same problem, callers cannot leave messages.They get some message like-voice message has not been set up yet.
So I set up my original machine, still worked ok,but sometimes the messages were garbled. Same thing, same problem as above.
I called Bell Canada, they said I have nothing wrong with my line, their Call Answer is not on my line. I do not necessarily believe them, I believe there is something on my line blocking to go to my answering machine..
So I am asking for help. Anything you can say would be appreciated.

SOURCE: answering machine is not picking up

Some machines have a setting for outgoing message only and will not accept a message in this mode. Check your owners manual to see if this may be the case and set it up to accept messages. In addition, if you have too many old messages on your machine, it will not take anymore until you erase some old ones. Good Luck to you.

I am having problem with leaving messages. Everytime someone try to leave msg..voicemail say your memory is full, please hangup..but there were no messages in there..I also turned the machine off to see if...


Deleting messages (memory may be full).

Verify you do not have old messages on the the system. After the system plays all new messages, press Play/Stop again or from the handset Select 2:Play.If you find messages, delete them during or after they play.

After you listen to your messages, the voice message icon turns off. If it doesn't or if you can not receive messages, you should try to reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Make sure the Record Time is not set to Announce Only.

It will not let someone leave a message on our answering machine??


In reading this issue I am not sure if you are referring to your voicemail that is provided by your cellular provider, or if cell phone callers are unable to leave a message on your land line answering machine, so I will answer both of those just incase. If you are referring to your cellular service and callers are not able to leave you a voice message, then there could be a couple of issues at hand here. The first of which is that your voice mail box may be full and cannot accept any more messages, If this is the case then you will need to delete some of the older messages by pressing and holding # 1 on your wireless handset and selecting the messages that you want to delete from the voicemail system. If that is not the issue then you will need to place a test call to your cellular device and let it rollover to voicemail and see what it is that the callers are being told. Sometimes there will be an error message. If this is the case then you will want to write that message information down and contact your service provider so that they can resolve the issue. If you call your cellular device and let it rollover to voicemail and the system tells you to enter the subscribers telephone or mailbox number, then what you have is called a "round tree message" and this means that there is an issue with the server that handles the voicemail for that celluar provider and their technical support team will handle the issue by reseting your voicemail. If they do this you may lose all of your messages, that is the downside. The upside is that callers will then be able to leave you messages.

If this is referring to your land line answering machine, I would recommend unpluging it, letting it sit for a minute and plugging it back in. You may also want to make sure that you do not have caller ID call block initated on your home phone, which will tell callers that there call has been delivered successfully but the party they are calling does not accept calls from parties who have their number blocked.

I hope that this information was helpful

Dialing in to get Voice Messages.


After the answering machine beeps for you to leave a msg - enter the 3-digit security code. If you haven't already set that function up, the default is 1-2-3.

Once in, use these buttons for:

#1 - Review msg
#2 - Play back msg
#2 again to Stop the play back
or #0 to delete during play back
#3 - Skip
#4 - Turn off/on answer
#7 Review voice menu options

Brother Multi function centre with fax, MFC 885CW we have the setting on F/T, it answers a fax after 2 rings, if a call coming in it keeps ringing, but on callers end it keeps beeping fax noises, callers...


Hi,

I had the same problem using my Brother MFC 8460N fax on the same line as my regular telephone, which has an answering machine.

There was nothing wrong with my equipment. It was a set-up issue. I solved it as follows, and maybe this will be helpful to you:

Here's what I did, step by step:

1. Put your MFC and your telephone near each other, and within reach of a phone wall jack.

2. Go to the fax machine. Take the telephone line with the clip on the end of it that comes out of the fax machine. Put that into the telephone wall jack.

3. Go to the answering machine. Take its telephone line with the clip on the end of it and put that into the BACK OF THE FAX MACHINE. The port on the back of my fax machine says something like EXT TAD which means external telephone answering device.


4. Go back to the fax machine. You'll now need to play around with the menu options for the fax. My Brother MFC shows this stuff in a little screen on the front. Try and find the Fax Setup options. Next, try and find the Fax Receive options. If you do, select something like External TAD fax receive mode. Do not give up, you're almost done.


5. Next, set ring numbers on both devices, the fax machine and the answering machine. I set both devices' ring numbers to 4. I don't know if these are the optimal settings, or what happens if you set them at different ring numbers. I only know that a "4 and 4" setting works for me, and am not inclined to mess with it.

6. Final detail: the setup should be transparent to a voice caller. Someone who is sending a fax, though, might be a little confused IF, like me, they lean over to listen to their fax machine dial and screech, just to be sure it's working. Such a person may faintly hear my outgoing answering machine message before they heard my fax machine's screech kick in. They might think that they had a wrong number, cancel the fax, try again, call me with questions, etc., etc. So I changed my outgoing message to something like: 'You have reached xxx xxx xxxx. To leave a voice msg, please wait for the tone. To send a fax, please continue the transmission and it will be printed. Thank you!'

That's it. Hope this was helpful.

Best,

Wilbere

Audioline 828


Is the OGM distorted on the callers phone or on the same speaker the incoming messages are heard?

If it's just the speaker, then the speaker itself or the amplifier drving the speaker is defective.

If the OGM is distorted for callers, then the signal processing before the amplifiers is defective.

More than likely it's a replace not a fix. The speaker unit itself will be very difficult to source. Maybe a very well stocked Radio Shack. Any electronics will likely be in a (custom?) integrated circuit.

GE 5.8 phone (dual)


You must have a recorded message on the answerer in order for the machine to record messages left by callers. I would bet that there are no messages there yet. It couldn't tell callers to leave a message if there is no message there. I know there is one standard one already there and the handsets often say NEW VOICE MAIL. If the round screen on the base unit has a number there, then you have a message and all you need do is push the play button.

User manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine


From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.
