Once you record your own message, it replaces the default one. If callers are still getting a different announcement, it's likely they aren't ever reaching your machine. Make sure that your telephone line voicemail service isn't picking up the calls instead. I've known several people with this same trouble, and they needed to modify their home voicemail (or whatever your service provider calls theirs) settings or turn it off. Then their phone answering machines worked properly.

Need setup help for ep5962


first set day and time... menu, mailboxes, set day/time, scroll to day, set, select, ok... then scroll to current time, set, dial pad four digits, 2 for am or 7 for pm, select save. now power on line 1 or 2 or both. phone is preprogrammed with 'hello, please leave a message after the tone.' to record your own use menu, mailboxes, select setup 1 or 2, then review/chng oga, then record new oga, then ok. record when screen changes, choose stop when you're done. shortcut: press and hold record, press and release mailbox line x, release when finished. you only record one line at a time, so you can have different messages on each line. even if it's the same, you must record each line. since you can only record one message the shortcut would be useful for an 'out to lunch, be back about 1-30' sort of message. then re-record a standard message when you get back from lunch. 'course, you really don't need an 'out to lunch' message, since people are accustomed to answering machines at any time of day. all the caller needs to know is that 'i can't get to the phone right now.' and they appreciate it when you keep it short.

RCA 25205 wont answer correctly


Yeah, I've wasted all morning messing with this. My personal outgoing message keeps reverting back to default. I just got off the phone with RCA and here's the fix for that part of the problem. Go into "Configure Out-Going Announcement" (page 23) and then select "personal," This finally made it stay there. The number I called for help is 1-800-511-3180, or 1-866-285-4651. Good luck!

RCA 25205 Visys will not record message


Called the company. There is a misprint in the instructions.

In the section titled "Out-Going Announcement RECORD" on last step it says Press Exit to stop recording. It should have said Press Sel/Save.

I did this and it worked.

Repeat for Line 2 if you are doing both lines.

Next thing is to make sure you go right to the section titled "Configure Out-Going Announcement" and select the right type of message you want callers to hear for each line.

Worked like a charm and took 3 seconds to get 2 different personal messages on the machine.

My new RCA Model 25205RE1-1 1815MO does not want to record a OGA. It appears to be recording as it so states and counts the seconds as you are speaking. I press EXIT and the OGA is not played...


The RCA Manual in incorrect. Step 8 reads "Press Set/Save to start recording. Speak within 6 inches away from the Mic located under SPEAKER button." Step 9 reads "Press EXIT to stop recording." Step 10 reads "The OGA is played automatically for your verification. It will then return to the OGA REC menu to start over or to record another OGA."

Step 9 should read "Press Set/Save to stop recording and the OGA is played automatically for your verification."
Step 10 should read "Press EXIT if recording is acceptable. Press Set/Save if you want to re-record."

By following the Manual you never save your message. "Playback" always has the Default message that comes on the machine. Furthermore, Customer Service at 310-953-9028 doesn't have a clue.
