Hi,

"A" is displayed when Announcement Only is activated.

In Announcement Only mode, callers hear an announcement but cannot leave messages.

To turn Announcement Only off, use the steps as shown in the attached image:

How do you retreive messages from another phone on the att model 1719 answering machine?


Dial your number, when the AT&T 1719 answers and the announcement begins playing(if the unit's answer function is turned off, it will answer after 10 rings) dial your three digit security code(default is 500). If the announcement continues playing after entering the security code, press # to end the announcement or wait for the announcement to end and re-enter the security code. The answer machine will announce the number of messages then begin playback of the messages. I have included a link to the manual, remote operation of the AT&T 1719 answer machine is on page 8.

I have philips landline phones. My main phone does not ring or flash when an incoming call comes in. I t won't go onto answer phone either it just rings out. I can pick it up and answer the call. i can...


Looks like the basic functions of the phone are correct. Remain the answering machine. Are you sure it can act as an answering machine?
If it can act as answering machine the reason it is not doing so may be the following.
  1. Answering function is turned OFF
  2. Answering function may be ON but the number of rings before it answers is set too high.
I suggest you try the following
Call you phone. Let it ring at least 10 times. If it can act as an answering machine it will pick up the phone and read the welcome message, because most answering machines (the recent ones at least) answer after 10 rings even if answering function is turned OFF.

The phones that can be answering machines usually do have a display that shows the number of incoming messages, or a LED that flashes to let you know that you have new recorded messages.

Forgot how to record outgoing message on KX-TGA


KX-TGA 101S is the model number of the hand-set. Can you send me the model number of the answering machine? Also do you have the manual for both hand-set and answering machine? If not I can give you the link to download both manuals for free.

Pick up new messages when out of state


AT&T/VTech posts owners manuals available for viewing online. you don't say which model answering machine you have, so I'm going to reference the current model.

Here is the URL:

http://telephones.att.com/docMgt/public/art/21714/1738_english_manualpart2.pdf

The steps for remote operation are on page 2/2. Highlights include:

Press "2" to play new messages
Press "*9" to end the call.

There are other options listed in the manual.

Message box says full, but machine shows 0 messages


Do you also have a telephone-company provided answering feature on your line (such as Verizon's home voice mail)? I've known other people who got this service as part of a package from their phone company without realizing it, and had just the same trouble. Your callers may be reaching that instead of your answering machine.

Most companies alert you to waiting messages through "stutter dialtone." When you pick up your handset you'll hear two or three short bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. This is your signal to pick up your voicemail messages. Are you hearing this?

Check with your telephone service provider if you are unsure. If your telephone answering machine says it hasn't taken any messages, the full box message must be coming from them.

Answering machine doesn't pick-up reliably


I found in the manual that if the machine doesn't answer after the correct number of rings, then it may be the ringing system used by the phone company. But I have also heard of people with VOIP (such as Vonage) having problems with this as well.
