Question about Conairphone Digital Answering System Answering Machines

2 Answers

I have a Model TAD2018 digital answering system. This system has worked great until recently when a person calls our phone and we are not home the answering machine does not pick up the call - phone keeps on ringing and a message can not be left for us. I have replaced battery, unplugged everything and replugged but problem is not solved. Is there something else I must do or has the machine died????????? Thank you for any help you can give me.

    I did try resetting my answering machine but the problem still occurs. Is there any other fix or is my machine no longer usable?

There is a ringer sensor that is set to answer in two or four rings of the call. If this is not set - usually on the side of the machine-set this or try to change the settings to another mode.
If this does not worrk the fault is within the set.
When the call comes in there is an optocoupler that senses the rings and feeds the signal to the subprocessor. This will trigger the call to be switched on by a Transistor and then connect to the answering system to take over by playing the recorded message and then beeping for the reply.
Now the failrue primarily can be the optocoupler sensor( a for pin unit) Check if open on the detector or emitter side. If Ok then check on the transistor switch of the line.
If this section seems fine then I am afraid that the fault needs higer attenttion to probe with knowledge of the mP and subsections.
