Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph

If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

On the m9516 what is the fax switch on and off used for?

The Fax Switch
The Fax Switch feature allows you to have two telephone numbers on one incoming line.
There is one telephone number for the line and another telephone number for a Fax Switch peripheral (e.g. fax machine).
To use the Fax Switch, you must subscribe to your telephone company for Distinctive Ringing†. The telephone company will then provide you with an additional telephone number (for your Fax Switch peripheral) which will have a slightly different ring. The 9516 will use the two ring types to determine whether an incoming call is for the telephone or the peripheral. The peripheral should be set to answer after three or more rings.
Note: If Long Distance Ringing† is available in your area, long distance calls will be sent to the Fax Switch peripheral. Also, you cannot use the Fax Switch feature and the Special Greeting feature at the same time. The 9516 must be configured so the Fax Switch peripheral is connected to pins 3 and 4 of jack number 2. See Connecting an optional fax machine or modem on
page 4 for more information.

If you subscribe to your telephone company for Call Waiting services, your Fax Switch peripheral may lose data or get disconnected if someone calls while your fax is receiving data. We recommend that you do not subscribe to the Call Waiting service from your telephone company if you are using the Fax Switch feature.

Inherited a NT5B05 3x8 with my house and I'm flumoxed...

By the year 2012 or 2013 it's not likely you will pay $20-30 for an additional land line instead of $10 for a cell phone :-)

The cabinet is a Digital Compact 308 for 3 outside lines and 8 digital extensions without caller ID. The system uses M7208/7310 and possibly 7324 phones. If you fetch $100 for it on eBay, I'd be amazed. Here's a stolen link to someone who has a description of one.

Can not view caller ID with call waiting service

The Meridian 9516 is not a visual call waiting (VCW) phone...meaning that you will not see the caller name and number of the second caller when you are on the must purchase a separate call display box (around $10) if you can still find them., but make sure that box is visual call display capable.
