Question about GE 29868GE1 Digital Answering Machine

Open Question

Answering machine 29868GE1B: I receive a voice prompt, as well as an F in the display, telling me that messages are full. This has happened every now and then since I've owned the machine. The only way I've found to clear the F and allow the machine to receive messages again, is to pull the power plug. Of course, this means that I have to go through the setup procedure again. I'd like to know why the machine does this, as I delete 99% of all received messages within a couple of days, and how to clear the F without having to perform the setup procedure again.

SOURCE: user manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine

From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.

SOURCE: Answering Machine not recording!

The reason the answering machine doesn't work is because it is not DSL compatible! If you have DSL internet for your computer, the phone lines are not compatible with the answering machine!

SOURCE: Retrieve deleted voice message

I don't think this can be done. I read through the entire manual and there is no mention. I can email you a copy of the manual if you want.

I would like to put a personal message on the phone for answering machine


Are you trying to set up your voice mail message? If So, just dial your own number to access you v-mail. If it's the first time you have tried this you should receive prompts to guide you through this process. Otherwise; you need to set up a password if you didn't already do this with your carrier.

How do I access messages away from home?


You'll need to visit AT&T's support site and download the manual for your phone to get full details, but all phones with remote capability work basically the same way. You call your phone number, and when your message starts playing you enter a code number. After that it's a matter of entering other codes to play messages, delete them, record a new announcement and so on. Some systems provide voice prompts; with others you might need to carry a reference card until you learn the codes. Your phone's manual will tell you what's what for your model.

Deleting messages (memory may be full).

Verify you do not have old messages on the the system. After the system plays all new messages, press Play/Stop again or from the handset Select 2:Play.If you find messages, delete them during or after they play.

After you listen to your messages, the voice message icon turns off. If it doesn't or if you can not receive messages, you should try to reset it: With the phone in standby, open the menu and select Global Setup; select VMWI Reset, then select Yes.

Make sure the Record Time is not set to Announce Only.

To have the machine answer faxes and record voice messages unattended change the answering mode to message centre. If you are home and pick up the phone , but it is a fax, not a phone call push *91 on the phone you answered on, and hang-up the phone. the fax machine will tyhen start receiving.

I don't believe it's a malfunction. See if your current phone company has a voice mail active for your phone. If that's the case then odds are your voice mail is picking up before your answering machine.

New Voice Mail


I have FiOs and used some of the info I gathered from this page to get my voice mail working now! To set up my voice mail I called my phone number (from the house phone), then pressed * when the automated system picked up...Your prompted to use a 4 digit pass code, which is the last 4 digits of your phone number (worked for me). From there I listened to the prompts and created a new "4 digit pw" as well as a "name password" by the end of the cycle. It then allowed me to listen to the messages on the phone and delete them! Phone finally says ready on it.
