A. stands for "announce", or, as it is printed on the device, "ANNC/SKIP."

Lost instructions, cannot create DVD from cam-corder recording


Thanks, I already solved the problem. There was no "Setup" button (on the remote, anyway) to follow the instructions given -- in the manual, which I downloaded!.

Instead, I remembered that "Input" often allows you to select a source for something, so when I chose THAT button, I was able to choose the port that had my cam-corder.

Then I simply pressed record on the DVD player while Play on the C-C.

Trying to change message on phone


I had the same problem recently and it took me days to finally find the instructions in the manual.

Presuming that you're using the Merlin Mail Voice Messaging System, download the manual from http://www.avaya.com/gcm/master-usa/en-us/home/index.htm

and go to page 5-108 to 5-109.

You must follow the complete set of instructions until the very end otherwise the new recording will not be saved. If you're like me, it will take a few tries to get it right. Just remember that the process makes no sense, so don't try to make sense of it. I think that whoever programmed this system was having a laugh at our expense. Anyhow, the instructions work.

Recording messages


Manual is online:
http://www.fixya.com/support/p129719-ge_29869ge2_digital_answering_machine/manual-13322/page-3

A warning I'll pass on that I just learned:
I just lost 57 special messages that I had saved for years to follow up on, and learned the hard way (if you haven't come across it yet):
From page 6 of manual:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOVING THE ANSWERER...
3. Go to the electrical outlet and unplug the power supply. DO NOT UNPLUG THE POWER JACK CONNECTED TO THE UNIT. If you do, all memory will be erased.
I wasn't even moving it to another place, the jack just came a little loose while moving it around the table, and all the messages disappeared. A very poor detail in an otherwise (in my experience) well-designed machine. Manual's page 6 covers this: http://www.fixya.com/support/p129719-ge_29869ge2_digital_answering_machine/manual-13322/page-6
