Question about AT&T 1717 Digital Answering Machine

Lights stay on - Answeing machine # 1726

Dear Sir or Madam,

  I own an A T & T Answering Machine  - Model 1726 - which has  given me reliable service over many years.   I have misplaced  my owner's manual  but have  relied upon your excellent customer service in the past for minor problems.
    Now, after reconnecting the answering machine to my phone, everything seems to be working well.  The only problems are::
   a) the center indicator   shows a number (now, it is No. 13; it was no. 12;  perhaps because I made a test phone call to see whether the machine was working)  - which I cannot turn off.
   b) the arrows pointing to MBOX!, MBOX2, and MBOX3 are all lit.   Same problem. I cannot turn them off.
     Thank you.         
                                                                                               R. L. Toby

Can not replay message

If you are at the machine and know which box the message is in, press and hold the button for the mailbox. The machine will then play old messages.

Here is a link to the 1726's userguide:

1726 does not record messages

System will not record messages

When memory is full, saved messages must be deleted before new messages can be recorded.

If RO (announce only) is selected, no messages will be recorded.

Moving a Message to Another Mailbox

You can move a message from one mailbox to another. The message is saved a a new message in the mailbox to which it's been added and is deleted from the original mailbox.

1 While the message you want to move is playing press "setup". The system beeps and stops playback, the Message Window displays CP (for copy) and the Mailbox lights flash.

2 Press the MBox button where you want to move the message. The system resumes playing messages in the original mailbox.
