Cuts off rings.. then static

Lately, my answering machine is completely disfunctional. When a call comes in, it cuts off at the first ring (even thought it is set for 4 rings before the answering machine will advise to leave a message)..... and then only static is heard by the caller.

Can anything be done to correct this problem?

We have the answering machine set to 4 rings. When people call, the machine picks up on the 4th ring, it beeps, then cuts off. No recorded message. No message is recorded, the call is disconnected. What do we do?

SOURCE: Answering drops call when answering

My GE 298669 was working one evening and not the next morning. Phone now rings endlessly but no messages are picked up or recorded. The battery was replaced, connections checked, cord pulled from unit (not wall) for a full reset and reinserted all with no effect.
Normally I'd suspect a power surge, but there is a surge protector on the unit and other devices on the surge protector seem OK. The unit is about three years old.

Turn machine over, a slide marked with 2R,4R, and TS can be slid even with 2R or 4R to answer after the 2nd or 4th ring. At TS, the machine is in Toll Save Mode. If there are messages, the machine will answer on the second ring. If not, it will answer on the 4th ring. You can hang up on the 3rd ring if on long distance to save Toll Charges.

GE Telephone answering machine will not work


I'm assuming this is a digital recorder and does not use a tape. Any chance the memory is full and you need to erase messages to free up space for new recordings?
