Question about AT&T 5840 5.8GHz Speakerphone/Answering/Caller ID Answering Machine
I moved my base from one outlet to another. now my phone base is clicking and flashing 88 in the ans maching window, the mailboxes and on/off are flashing as well.
We turned the circuit breaker on and off. Now all three playstop buttons and the on/off button is flashing and clicking. The number "88" is displayed. Please notify me of solution.
If the unit doesn't take messages, first check the owner's manual for a troubleshooting chart or other diagnostics. Some include self-checks that will tell you what the problem is.
If the machine doesn't work at all, first make sure power is on at the electrical receptacle and test the electrical cord .
If the machine is digital, there is little you can do to replace individual components. Try cleaning the machine with canned air and electronic cleaner .
If the tape reels don't move, check the cassette and replace it if it is faulty. If that doesn't fix the problem, replace a loose or broken belt .
If the machine doesn't respond to calls, try replacing the telephone cord or modular plug
If the tape jams, repair or replace a faulty tape cassette . Also, clean the heads and the tape path . If necessary, replace a broken or stretched belt .
If the message quality is poor, clean dirty heads or repair or replace a faulty tape
Hope that helps.....
