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

Mailbox recieves messages but is not saving them (KX-T7630)


Hi,

This sometimes happens on my phone. The only way I have found to clear this is to leave a voice-mail. Check your messages delete the test message and your system should clear itself out.

I think what happens is it gets stuck thinking there is a message. So when you clear the new message it then realizes there is no more messages. I know this works on my phone and could be the same for yours.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

That my copy of the windows did not pass geniune windows validatn


Hi
Microsoft check the key of all windows software. If it fails you get the message that you have recieved.
If you want to get genuine, you have to pay Microsoft.
If you feel it is a genuine copy that you have, you have an option on screen to tell microsoft where you purchased it from.
If you do nothing, you will continue to get that message each time you log on and you will not recieve any more updates.

I can send my text messages but i can't recieved any text messages in all networks


Check Your Message Centre Number With Your Network Provider.The Number Will Be In The Messages Menu In Message Settings And Then Text Message Settings.It May Be Different On Your Phone But Similar.
You May Have Accidently Changed Something.
I Would Also Check That Ypu Havnt Disabled Recieving Text Messages.

Maybe This Helps You,I Hope So.
