    My ANSWERING MACHINE ALSO ANSWERS IN FRENCH!! HOW DO I CHANGE THIS WITHOUT THE MANUAL???? THANKS.

    Yes, I am having the same issue. It was in the english format and I was trying to perform another function on the phone while pressing the buttons and then the language format got changed. I no longer have the manual and can't change it back. There is nothing else wrong with the phone and I would hate to have to buy another phone just for this. Help!!!

I think I found a solution. On my phone model 27996GE3-A, I unplugged the phone for a few seconds, plugged it back in and waited until the display showed the number of messages and then I pressed the "skip" and "review" buttons at the same time and then it announced the the language changed to english. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Request help to retrieve message,then turn off answering function

You might try going to unidendirect.com, scroll down to "customer service" and click there. a FAQ list comes up. #8 is remote access messages, maybe your other issue would be answered as well.

SOURCE: To turn the blue light off

What worked for me was to call my phone and leave a voicemail. I then retrieved and deleted my voicemail which reset my handsets.

I hope this helps!

Answering machine is in spanish not english


LOTS! http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/27851GE1_IB.pdf

According to the manual, you hold the SKIP button down for 2 seconds and it reverts back to English. (Don't hold it down again or it's Espanol time).

The solution for the base (not the handset) is to press and hold for 2 seconds the "Skip" button (it's marked with ">>").

Just as the other answers that were left...you just have to press the skip button. Just make sure that you press announce on the cradle...not on the phone...then when you hear the voice in Spanish just press and HOLD the skip button until it changes to English. Good Luck
