Re: answering machine unit stopped working (KX-TG1034)...

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.

How to turn on machine from a remote location

Call your KX-TM150B answer machine, it will answer after 15 rings if it has power but the answer function is turned off. The greeting will play and the answer function will turn on. I have included a link where you can download the manual.

I can't find my manual. The power went out and when it came back on my machine now beeps incessantly and flashes an F2. Don't know what that stands for or how to stop the beeping. Unplugged and plugged...

Well I feel your pain. I have the same machine and we had a winter storm about 3 weeks ago and had a power outage too. When I went to reset my answering machine it shows a F0 code which I can't find out what it means either. I also have tried everything, nothing works, none of the buttons respond and all i get is the F0 error code and constant beeping. I am still trying desperately to find a cure for this. Like you I'm afraid the power surge fried something. The manual gave one number which is 1-800-222-3111, I called and they couldn't help me because this was an old discontinued model. Grrrr...
I can give you the web site to get a copy of your manual that you can print or read:

If you find a cure for this please post it. I love this machine and think it is so much better than most of whats out there. I don't want to have to replace it but need to do something soon. Good luck, Barb

Uniden TRU 8885 - "Welcome, Please Wait" message on base

Try leaving the unit unplugged for a few minutes and power it up. There can be power surges during an outage that can damage the chips holding the software that loads.

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.

Light stays on eight

I had this happen recently due to a power outage. I found my manual and to reset you need to unplug the unit from the socket it self AND the back of the machine. I tried just unplugging it from the back of the machine and this did not work. When I did BOTH things, the machine reset. At least give it a try...

Messages ALL erased!

The answering machine is supposed to save messages during a power failure. If the messages are gone, then the unit is defective.

I have the same machine. There is a Function/Edit button on the upper left hand side of the unit. Every time you press the button you scroll through the functions to program the unit. Change the "remote code" to any two digit number you choose and will take care of your problem!
