    Hi, Thank you for giving me the info re: phone/answering machine repairs. I tried to get a manual on the sites you sent me but it is rather long (56 pgs.) and I can't seem to get it printed out. I don't know why but no little printer icon comes up so I can't seem to get it printed out. I'm trying now to just read the applicable parts from the computer. Thank you again. Dotdote

    I looked for the printer Icon but not there it's OK tho because I'm reading what I need from the PC...I'm working on it = I'll let you know if I succeed.. Thanks . I really appreciate the help. Dotdote

    thank you for your help, however it was not needed after all. My husband took the base from the wall, pulled the plug , waited 30 sec. and then replugged it into the wall socket and low and behold it worked. It seems that this model reprograms itself when the power is lost... when the power is restored just unplug, wait a few seconds and then replug and it will work as new....Much easier than trying to read that manual...which was not the same one for my phone/answering machine unit.....

Explaining the steps for reprogramming your answering machines are quite elaborate and would take too much to explain so i have sent you a link to help download the user manuals the first is for AT&T

http://uversephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/286/1818_manual.pdf

Next is for the VTech.

Hope this solution has been helpful?

    You are welcome. You can simply just read the applicable parts on the PC but to print the document there is usually a printer symbol at the top left corner of the document right under the window tabs once you click on print there it will direct you on how to print the document.
    Please do rate the solution provided so far and dont hesitate to request further support.
