You need to have an access code.It should be in the manual.I am not sure if it is reprogrammable,but if you call V-tech customer support with your model and serial number,they may be able to tell you. Good luck!

Phone answering machines have really evolved over the past decade. Although cell phones are fashionable these days, there are still houses and offices that are still needed to answer. You can even just use an answering machine, and can make their lives easier.

Telephone answering machines are very popular, but anyone can buy these items, are what they really need and how it can serve its purpose.

There are different types and styles available. You should consider the capabilities of the machine to store a number of calls and its length. The total recording time using the answering machine is usually only 15 minutes.

Some machines can be set to ring a number of times that no messages. At this rate, we can save to pay a toll just to check messages if they are away from home. There are many other features that can be appreciated by an answering machine. For example, one can simply pick up the phone to answer a call while at the same time, the device will automatically shut down.

The microphone (located inside the unit and points downward to the surface below the answering machine) might be bad (assuming that messages left by callers sound clear).

One option would be to call into the machine and try recording your greeting that way. Else, there isn't much that can be done other than to replace the unit.

Lost my manual and cannot remember how to get messages remotely


Since I have not idea what exact model you have this may or may not work... I hope it helps, as it is for a Uniden answering service phone.

To continue playing your messages, press [#] then [2] again within 15 seconds.
To operate from a remote location, use any touch-tone telephone and follow these steps:
1.) Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer
2.) During the greeting message, press [#] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds;

How to enter a PIN
To play your messages from a remote location, you will need to enter a two-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) or PIN Code.
Press the MENU soft key. Select the ANSW. SETUP menu, and then the SECURITY CODE submenu.
Enter a two-digit security code (00-99) using the number keypad [0-9].
Press the OK soft. You will hear a confirmation tone.

The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory.
You hear "To play incoming messages, press pound-two. For help, press pound-zero." You will hear a beep.
Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds. You may select a command from the following:

How to access messages remotely


While you are away from your home or
office, you can use a touch-tone phone,
or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket
tone dialer (available through your local
RadioShack store) to enter your PIN and
do any of the following:
• set the phone to answer or not
answer calls
• listen to your messages
• record a new outgoing message
• erase messages
• monitor the room where the phone
is located
Notes:
• You cannot remotely operate the
phone using its handset or another
telephone on the same line as the
phone.
• You can also listen to the message
recorded on Line 2 by making a call
to Line 1’s number (or vice versa).
USING THE TOLL-SAVER
If RING TIME is set to TS (toll-saver),
(see “Setting the Number of Rings” on
Page 15), the phone answers after three
rings if you have new messages (ones
you have not listened to). If there are no
new messages, the phone answers after
five rings. This gives you time to hang
up before the phone answers so you
can avoid unnecessary long-distance
charges.
Note: Toll-saver works only on the line
you called. If Line 1 has no new messages,
but Line 2 has one, the telephone
answers after five rings when you
call Line 1.
USING REMOTE
COMMANDS
Follow these steps to operate the phone
from a remote location.
Note: If you wait more than 15 seconds
between keypresses, the phone sounds
a long beep and hangs up.
1. Dial your phone number and wait for
the phone to answer.
2. If the phone is not set to answer
calls, it answers after about 10 rings
and sounds a series of beeps.
3. When the outgoing message begins
(or the phone sounds a series of
beeps), press #, then enter your PIN
within 2 seconds.
If the PIN is correct, the phone announces
the day and time, then it announces
the number of new and old messages.
The phone plays all new messages,
then beeps about every two seconds to
let you know it is ready to accept remote
commands.
Notes:
• If the phone does not respond, try
entering your PIN again. If you enter
an incorrect PIN three times, the
phone beeps and hangs up.
Remote Operation 27
• When the phone is operating from a remote location, it stops all answering functions
and rC appears on the display on the base. The phone resumes answering
functions when it is no longer in remote operation, if you have not turned it off.
• The remote playback of incoming messages is limited to 4 minutes. If you have
more messages after 4 minutes have passed, you must press # 2 again to listen
to the rest of the messages.
• When using remote operation, you can only delete the current message during
playback. You cannot delete all the messages stored at one time.
The following table shows the remote commands you can use.
Note: Remote operation stops when someone picks up the handset and presses either
LINE 1 or LINE 2 (whichever is flashing), or any phone on the same phone line.
Remote Commands
Press #
then (within
2 seconds:
Function
1
Repeat current message during playback.
2 Play messages.
3 Skip current message during playback.
4 Delete current message during playback.
5 Stop playback, recording, and room monitoring.
6 Set the phone to answer or not answer calls.
7 Record or stop recording a new outgoing message.
8 Play the outgoing message.
9 Switch to the other line (Line 1 or Line 2).
0 Monitor the room where the phone is located for 15 seconds

Retriving messages remotely


Hi Ern, Usually the phone has a default code you dial when you attempt to get messages from your home answering machine.
Try calling your home, let the machine pick up, after your message is heard dial 1234. Your machine should recognize the tones and play your mesages back to you. I just happened to read that earlier today while setting up a new message on our office phone.
Hope this helps, RadioWidgets

Talking on phone,someone calls in & leaves message, can't locate


Thanks for the opportunity to help with your problem. If you also have voice mail through your phone service provider, it's possible that while you are on the phone, the incoming call is "waiting" (meaning you are hearing a beep while you are still talking assuming you have call waiting). If you don't pick up the incoming call, your caller will hear your "voice mail" message and leave a message. However, your answering machine will not indicate that you have a message.

If my assistance was of any benefit whatsoever, please give me a rating so I can continue to improve my service. Thanks for using FixYa.com.

Static in the recorded message. AT&T model 1738


The microphone (located inside the unit and faces downward towards the surface below the answering machine) might be defective. One option would be to call into the answering machine and try recording your message that way.

Other than that, there really isn't much you can do for this problem other than replace the unit.
