    Solution did not work. Instead we bought a new answer machine which works well. So much for FIXYA. Do not charge us for useless solution.

This is generally a glitch with the digital recording mechanism. Since the phone is only a month old, I suggest taking it back for exchange.

Need to retrieve my messages on my GE home phone that had messages from my son who passed in June of 09. PLEASE help me. Model # 29893GE1B. PLEASE, Hearing his voice helps me throught the grieving process.


Ms. - I'm so sorry for your loss.
The least difficult and technical way to retrieve the messages to save would be to buy a digital voice recorder as shown here on Amazon.com
Click Here
or any larger store that sells consumer electronics. There's no need for expensive as spending more money would not get you any better quality recordings of your son's messages. The only feature you require is that the device have a USB connection so you could connect it to your PC and save the recordings to your PC hard drive.
Before you start recording messages be aware that because the messages are digital you can replay them as many times as you need to to get the right quality withou causing them any damage.
To start saving the messages you would place the microphone of the digital recorder over the phones speaker on the left side of the phone at about a distance of 4 to 6" to start. The manual for the digital recorder probably would give you specific advice about this.
The recorder works like a minauture tape recorder. To start recording messages press the RECORD button on the digital recorder, a few seconds later hit the phones PLAY/STOP button to begin the message. When the message is finished hit the phones PLAY/STOP button and then the stop button on the recorder. You've recorded the first message. It's a good idea to rewind the recorded message and play it to make sure the quality is adequate (it should not be much different from the original in quality) If it's OK, move on, recording the messages one by one until you are finished.
To save the messages permanently you would plug the recorder into a USB port on your computer and copy the files to the hard drive. As a precaution, please copy the files over to another medium also, either burning them to a CD or DVD or copying them to a USB thumb drive.
I hope this has been helpful. I hope your healing has begun.
Peace, Mikeywaf

Hi-Our GE spacemaker phone will no longer record messages when someone attempts to leave a message. The phone will just ring and never attempt to record. It was working fine for until recently. We have...


Apparently you have the answering machine turned off.
When speakerphone is OFF (not in TALK mode), press flash/program button and CID VOL(+) / CID VOL(-) arrow keys to move the pointer > to point at ANSWER ON/OFF, press flash/program button to show SET ANSWERER ON OFF.
Use the CID VOL(+) / CID VOL(-) arrow keys to select ON.
If you need one, you can download the manual here.

How do you set the number of times the phone rings before the machine picks up on my GE answering machine? I can not find the manual


Hi kcee
I think I did find the manual here :
http://157.254.235.130/public/347A8329-0001 (Rev. 1 E&S).pdf
and here :
http://phone.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ge_appliances/29827.html

you can find more types here :
http://phone.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/ge_appliances/ge_appliances_answering_machine_product_list.html


You can find General Electric home page here:
http://www.geappliances.com/electronics/

I suggest you contact GE on the link to get the manual and understanding your answer machine with a reply :
http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/form_operating.htm

FOR Thomson Consumer Electronics :
you get there homepage here :
http://www.home-electronics.net/

I did try to find the manual for your specific phone, but could only find these answer machines here (previous and next model number) :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29871GE3_IB.pdf


http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29869GE2_IB.pdf

source :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/user-manuals.asp

on the second manual here on page 9 you find the settings to answer. I think they have used the same shortcuts for these models. They write ;

### This feature is used to set the unit to answer a call after
a specific number of rings.
The unit announces the rings to answer. To change,
press NEXT or PREVIOUS. To set and go on to the next
item, press SET.
1. Press and release NEXT or PREVIOUS until the unit
announces and displays the correct number of rings
for the answerer to pick up.
2. Once the rings to answer is set, press SET. The unit
announces the rings to answer, then enters the
incoming message length menu.
TOLL SAVER
The toll saver is the final setting in the Rings to Answer..........####

For the GE model you find these features on page 17

One last thing, you can contact Thomson Consumer Electronics for more specific answer or get the manual here :
http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/contact.asp
they have also a phone :
"For customer service assistance, dial 1.800.448.0329. Our hours of operation are Monday thru Friday, 8am to 8pm Eastern, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 7pm Eastern."

Hope that helps
IF NOT then try to return here
Have a nice time over there

Recorded message plays in Spanish. Husband threw the manual away.


Way too easy :-)

When you were listening to messages you probably pressed the SKIP button for longer than 2 seconds. Try pressing it and holding it again and see what happens.

Here's the manual link: http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/25942GE3_IB.pdf

Wish to use the telephone company answering system how do I turn


There is a button marked "ANS ON/OFF" right on the base to control the answering machine function. The display shows "--" when answering is off, otherwise it shows the number of messages.

The manual says you can delete messages one at a time from the handset, or all at once or one at a time from the base.

You can download the manual from GE here:
