    I am having the same issue,

    The power went off and now the machine won't kick in when someone calls. Everything on the machine is set properly and the phones work fine but it just won't kick in to record when the phone rings.

    I have one KX-TG 1032S phanasonic phone. Recently I am unable to expand the menu "answering device" in my hand set. In the base unit also I am unable to use the answering machine functions. When pressing the "answer on" button, I heard a beep and the red illumination turns on. I am unable to switch it off. I have to switch off the power to the base unit and again switch on. While switchin on the base unit power, the "answer on" illumination blinks for 16 times and the illumination goes off. Any one pl guide me

Your problem is kinda common with all digital machines. I don't know if its the sag in the ac line (just as bad as a surge), or a ac surge when it comes back on, but it messes up the power circuit which in turn blows some of the processors (in addition to scrambling the boot program). GillB had the right idea for trying to reset the cpu, but it sounds as if your unit has gotten hit harder than just scrambling the boot program. I don't know how much Bang charges for repairs but from their site it looks as if they bounce you to a local dealer for your service options. Nevertheless, if you reach deadends with Bang or other service options I will try to help you fix it cost effectively though I have never repaired this exact model. You can reach me by googling "answering machine repair" and click the first couple of non sponsored links. Good Luck

Try unplugging/removing batteries to reset defaults and then reset your own message, etc.

Answering machine on light keeps flashing but does not turn on unit

The headset(s) and the base station need to be re-sync.

Check the bottom contacts (base and headset) and let them sync (3+ minutes) OVER-NIGHT if the headset are low on battery.

This will sync the security code.

I need remote instructions for the phonemate 3900 am

The remote function will allow you to control your answering device from anywhere. On the Phonemate brand, you simply "key in" your answering machine's PIN number when your answering machine picks up your call. From there you can playback your messages, erase messages, record a different greeting and more. On some models the "default" PIN code is stamped on the bottom of the unit. Some units have a battery backup to retain messages if you have a power outage. If your PIN code IS printed there, and you have forgotten your PIN code, simply remove the battery from the bottom of the unit, wait a minute, and reinstall the battery. Your PIN code will be reset. I have attempted to get a manual for your unit and the best on the web so far has only come up with the address as follows
Phonemate Answering Machine Sales & Service Center 2321 Morena Blvd. San Diego, CA 92110 Phone:(619) 276-7312If this helps, let me know. We'll dig a little deeper.

Digtal answering machine not working.

I don't know yet if this is a resolution, but I'm going to try this tonight. Unplug all bases and remove all batteries from all handsets -- leave this overnight.

Here's the history of my problem. I rec'd this phone for my birthday. 3 weeks in, power went off in my building and answering machine part stopped working. I took it back to the store, and they gave me a new one. 4 weeks in, another power outage and I have the same problem. I called Panasonic, and they told me to unplug all bases and remove the batteries in the handsets for 'a few minutes' to reset the units. I waiting 10 minutes, and replaced all batteries and plugged in all the bases again. No luck, answering machine still did not work. I noticed, however that the phone did not reset as I still had all my phone numbers and caller id history.

I called my brother who is an electrician, and he advised me that the base has a 'capacitor(sp?)' and it will probably take a few hours for it to 'drain' so the phone will reset itself. His suggestion is to unplug all the bases, remove all the batteries and leave everything OVERNIGHT. By that time, the power store in the base should hopefully be wiped out and the phone should reset like new. I will try this tonight and let you know if this works.
