Unplug the phone from the 110-AC source for maybe 30 seconds, then plug-in to let it boot up again. FYI, your land line becomes useless with cordless phones when the 110-AC power goes out. Advice you keep an old-school corded phone handy nearby to plug into the RJ-11 phone jack as a backup when household power goes out. The RJ-11 wiring includes power, which provides voltage power to old-school corded telephones. You can procure old-school corded phones really cheap from your neighborhood thrift stores.
Press the PROGRAM button in the row of buttons just above the number pad. If you need a manual, you may download a copy here. You'll probably also want a manual for whatever main unit your phone is connected to, since much of the programming is actually done on that.
The sound you are hearing is radio interference, which is stated in the manual and on the base itself as having to be accepted. There are a couple of steps you can take to prevent this:
Move the base to a location away from other radio devices, including but not limited to: Microwaves, computers, dvd/cd/audio players, other phones, radio's, basically anything electronic that sends out a signal.
Moreso, cordless phone's generally have a feature allowing you to change the channel that they send/recieve signals on. Changing this may have a better effect on sound quality. The instructions on how to do so are in your manual!
You need to adjust the setting that determines how many rings before the phone automatically answers and plays the pre-recorded outgoing message. Instructions will be in the manual, but if you want me to help further please include the model number here as an additional comment.
