Question about Uniden CLX485 Cordless Phone
I'm having issues with my answering machine...whenever you call the phone to leave a message, a horrible screeching noise answers in place of the answering machine message - sounding almost like a fax machine. The only way that I have been able to fix this problem is to call the phone...and during the fax machine like noise, press buttons on the phone that I'm making the call with (i.e. cell phone) and after about a minute it stops and you are able to leave a message. However...if you don't review the message and leave it as new on the machine, on the next incoming call the machine works and and you are able to hear our outgoing message and "leave a message after the beep"...??? We've had the phone company come out and test our lines and they are fine...it seems to be the phone that is the problem.
Called Uniden tech support and they were not able to provide any solution but to return it. We bought it a year ago and don't have the receipt and I'm sure the store we purchased it from would not accept any return after a years time.
Can anyone help!??
You might try going to unidendirect.com, scroll down to "customer service" and click there. a FAQ list comes up. #8 is remote access messages, maybe your other issue would be answered as well.

unplug your unit and allow it a few minutes to reset it's self. than call it using a cell phone and see if it does the same thing. If so check you menu option and make sure that the anserwing machine is not set up to only record for a certain period of time before disconnecting the call.

unplugging the unit from the power source and waiting 30seconds seems to be the answer. the answering machine is working and i can call out again.
thanks you to everyone who posted that answer in different parts of FixYa.
