You have the answering machine set to announce only.

Press the menu button repeatedly until you hear the phone say "set announce only" Press the change button twice The first time tells you the current setting which is "on" the second time turns it off.

Answering system doesn't work.


Your system is set to "Announce" mode, where it plays an announcement but does not record a message. You want "Answer" mode, where the system allows the caller to leave a message.

Since you didn't give the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch modes. Enter the model into the search box at http://www.vtechphones.com/support/general/manuals to download a copy of the manual.

Cannot record incoming message


You have announce set on, so callers can hear your message but cannot leave one of their own.

To change this, follow the instructions on page 28 of the manual at

We have a 5.8 ghz vtech phone with answering machine. where the clock display is - there is an A. what does that mean?


That means your system is set to "announce" mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but does not record any incoming messages. The alternative is "record" mode, which plays an outgoing message and then records the incoming message.
Since you didn't specify the model of your VTech system, I can only direct you to enter it into the search box here and download a copy of the manual.

My answering machine is displaying an A and won't let anyone leave a message on it. What should I do?


Your machine is set to the announce mode, where it only plays an outgoing announcement without taking any incoming messages. You want to switch it to the record mode, where it will record incoming messages. Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch it. I can only direct you to enter the model number into the search box here to download a copy of the manual.

Won't record message


Your machine is set to "Announce" instead of "Answer" mode. The announce mode merely plays an outgoing message but does not record any incoming messages.

Since you neglected to specify the model of your VTech 5.8GHz cordless system I can only suggest you enter it into the search box here to download the manual to learn how to switch modes.
