    The A stays on the answering machine. If someone leaves a message it says I have no messages.

I just bought a Radio Shack 43-3829 telephone answering machine. What does a caller need to do to send a message to a specific mail box? Right now all messages are going to the general mail box.


To put the message in a specific mail box, the caller needs to press *1, *2 or *3 (touch tone phone) before leaving their message. (Of course the answering system has to pick up before the key stroke.) Obviously the number corresponds to the mail box that will get the message.

So if you want to include these directions in your outgoing message, you would need to add something like "To leave a message for John press Star 1, for Sam press Star 2" when you record the ogm.

The manual for the answering system is available from Radio Shack. See http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2257360#tabsetBasic . The direct link to the English version of the manual is http://www.radioshack.com/graphics/uc/rsk/Support/ProductManuals/4303829_PM_EN.pdf .

I hope this helps.

How can I receive remote messages


Hello,
When you are away, you call your number. After the answering machine asks you to leave a message, punch your code and listen to the instructions (hear new messages, hear all messages, erase message, de/activate answering function, etc.).

Hope it helps.

ANSWERING MACHINE WON'T RECORD MESSAGES


The answering machine is most likely referring to the other mail boxes.
if a caller presses 1 or 2 they record in the other mail boxes.On the machine you will see an envelope with a 1 or a 2 next to the envelope.
Press and hold one of these mail boxes and when the messages are played press del to delete each message as it plays. Do this for each mail box.
Have this answering machine and have experienced this problem.

Radio shack 43-3829 answering machine


Well, your machine might be broken, or you haven't set the little switch on the unit to ANS. The switch is on the side of the machine where the cables come out. But here are the instructions from the manual:

Recording Outgoing Messages:

Your answering machine has a built-in outgoing message, "Hello, please leave a message after the tone." You can use this message or record your own.

1. Hold the ANNC/DAY/<<, and speak clearly into the microphone, no more than 10 inches away.

2. Release the ANNC/DAY/<< when you finish. Your answering machine beeps and automatically plays back your recorded message.

*Your outgoing message must be between one and 60 seconds.

*If you record your won message but wish to revert to the pre-recorded message, press DELETE during playback of your outgoing message.

Power failure message.


Power Failure Recovery

If the system is disconnected from the AC power it will not operate. Your announcemen and messages are retained in memory during a power failure but you will need to reset the clock. See the instructions on the bottom of the unit. If the message window displays CL, you need to reset the clock. See the instruction on the bottom of the unit.
