Answering machine wont turn on


Have you checked and made sure all the proper cords are plugged in to the proper places? Also, have you tried just pushing all the cords further in, because the problem might just be that the cords aren't in correctly?.

I have a VTech Dect 6.0 cordless phone answering machine. I disconnected the power to the answering machine in error. I want to reset the time on the answering machine. How do I do this? My email...


Hi there,From answering your telephonemag-glass_10x10.gif when you are busy or away, to broadcasting a generic message to callers, an answering machine is a key part of your home or office phone system. When the device is working properly, it not only records and playbacks messages, but also informs you of the date and time of the call. If your answering machine is not recording messages, displaying an error code or is presenting another problem, you can reset the device and restore it to a working state.

Problem with GE 29875 ANSWERING MACHINE


My reliable GE 29897GE2-A speakerphone w/ digital answering machine works perfect on my AT&T landline, BUT the answering machine does NOT work when connected to my Vonage VDV21-VD line (w/ voicemail and call forwarding disabled). I called Vonage Customer Support to inquire about this from their website:

"Can I use my own answering machine instead of Vonage server based voice mail?
If you wish, you CAN use your existing answering machine with Vonage. All you need to do is DISABLE Vonage’s server based voicemail system by logging into your account at www.vonage.com, and clicking on features. The voicemail menu will allow you to disable the entire Vonage voicemail system."

Vonage Customer Support was clueless. The only resolution offered was their suggestion that I might contact the manufacturer (GE-licensed Atlinks USA, Thomson)... lol, good luck with that!

So I installed a GE in-line "DSL Phone Line Filter" between the Vonage VDV21-VD and the GE 29897GE2-A, BUT the answering machine still does NOT work. It appears that Vonage is simply incompatible with the answering machine despite Vonage's bold claims to the contrary.

I am still in need of a solution. It is not a 2 phone (cordless) it is 1 and know I have not solved the problem, I was hoping you would be able to help. I am not interested in purchasing anything other than what I already have.

Please help me resolve my problem, it doesn't sound like anyone has looked at or reviewed it. Thank you

ATT 5840


The processor chip that records the voice is a multi level SMD technology chip. The tech who changes it will need the proper soldering facilities for this type of work.

The only people who can service the phone are the authorized service people for ATT. They will not sell parts to non authorized service people, even if they have the proper facilities to change the chip.

For service on your phone, the service center will normaly change the complete circuit board. If the phone is out of warranty, the cost would not be worth it.
