It takes a lot of patience; however pursue an AT&T telephone number that is manned by a live person; then follow a trail of phone numbers until one of them connects with a helpfull live person who is familiar with the problem and who then furnishes a very simple solution.

How do I delete a recording on my JNC Digital Recorder?


I'm not sure about that particular model, but usually you can press ERASE as the message is playing.
On some other models you have to press ERASE at the end of the message you wish to erase.

In either case, right after you press ERASE it will ask ERASE? (or FILE ERASE? ) then you press ERASE again.

Just make sure to experiment a bit so you don't erase a wrong and important recording by mistake.
I don't believe it can be recovered.

How do i erase messages


To erase a message while it is playing, press the ON/OFF ERASE button. The


answering system announces, "Message Erased" to confirm the message has been


erased.


To Erase All Messages: When the answering system isn't playing or recording messages, press and hold

the ERASE button until you hear the "Messages Erased" announcement. Release the

button after the announcement. This feature allows you to erase all old messages

but not new messages. If you do not have any messages, the answering system

announces, "Zero Messages."

How do i record my personal greeting on answer machine model ATT 1717. I am only able to get the prerecorded greeting. Thank you charlene


I hope this helps you:

Recording Your Announcement

Before using this answering system, you

should record the announcement (up to

one minute long) that callers will hear

when the system answers a call. If you

choose not to record an announcement,

the system answers with a prerecorded

announcement: "Hello. Please leave a

message after the tone."

1 Press and hold annc/skip. The system

beeps. Speak toward the microphone

normally, from about nine inches away.

While you are recording, the Message

Window displays -.

2 To stop recording, release .annc/skip

The system automatically plays back

your announcement.

To review your announcement, press
and release .annc/skip

You can get a copy of your 1717 manual at this web site:

Hope this helps. Good Luck, Barb

Erasing messages


Hi. I think you have to wait until more calls come in. If you did not save original message(s), then these will then go away FOREVER.

It maybe hardware issue. Make sure the recording DTAM chip is working. You can try to record your personal annoucement, to see if the chip still record message.
