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.

My Vtech phone answering machine no longer records incoming messages on its base. Help


From the sound of it it I think its either: your mailbox is full or the feature has been turn off accidentally.

Vtech's support recommend the following (I've removed things like 'make sure its plugged in' and 'is your answering system is turned on' etc..)

1 Some answering systems have an announce only option, which plays your greeting but won't record messages. Make sure your system is set to record messages.

2 Your answering system's message capacity may be full. You must erase old messages to make room for new ones.

3 If you have voicemail service in addition to your answering system, your caller's message may be going into voicemail before your answering system picks up the call. Program your voicemail to pick up at least 2 rings after your answering system is set to answer the call.

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
