Loud, screeching noise when taking a message

Erased a couple dozen messages, then any incoming messages after the greeting are drowned out with a loud, echoing, screeching noise. I've disconnected the power cord from the phone and from the wall several times to reset it, but the noise keeps coming back when a message is playing. Any way to get rid of it?

Managed to clear it myself. After making several cell phone calls to my machine last night and unplugging it over and over, etc. I gave up. This morning I again unplugged everything, reset all the settings and called the machine several times. At first I kept getting the "noise", but eventually I was able to call and leave a normal sounding message. Can't really explain what "cured" it! In desparation I did shake the machine and give it a hard slap, but who knows what did it!

Can I retrieve an erased greeting message on a panasonic answering machine model #kx-TG9341T


Unfortunately the news is not good. The answering machine does not have tape storage. Everything is stored on a memory chip. Anytime you re-record the incoming call greeting, you overwrite the previous greeting. Sorry.

I have a Uniden cordless answer machine,Can my meesages be retived?


You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touch-tone telephone. Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete messages, even to record a new greeting message.
  1. Call your telephone number.
  2. During the greeting message, press 0 and enter your PIN code. By default, the pin code is "80" without the quotes.
  3. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming messages, press zero two. For help, press one zero".
Available commands are:

  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message
  • 0 then 2 Playing Incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop*
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop*
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help Guidance

Can you set the answering machine to answer with a greeting, but not record an incoming message? I just want to leave a greeting, but with no option for the incoming caller to leave a message.


On page 42 or so of your manual, there is a Greeting Only option MENU 0 6 2, where you can adjust the message length or set the G.O. option.

Cannot go back to default greeting message


According to the Operating Instructions for this machine, chapter 7.1.1. says that by erasing your recorded message, the machine should be set to play the pre-recorded greeting message again. And I guess you can then go on and try to record a new message, hopefully it will be more successful this time. I don't have this machine myself, but I wish you good luck!

Greeting was somehow erased


Hi Sherrie, I am sorry to hear about your husband, I will do what I can to help. I am fairly confident on that model that if you push the greeting button, then delete it will erase the message for good. Also, if the memory power failed, then it would reset to the default greeting and erase all messages and greetings. However, if the unit has options for multiple greetings (ie. default greeting, greeting 1, greeting 2, etc., then perhaps the default greeting may have been selected, while your husbands greeting is still there but is recorded under say greeting number 1. If that is the case, you can select it to play his greeting instead of the default greeting to have it play. I would find out for you but my computer is having trouble opening the manual on the Panasonic site, so here is the link. Look under "greetings" in the index. Hope I helped. Thanks, CG http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/KXTM150B.PDF
