You're in the announce mode, not the record mode. Since you didn't specify the model of your VTech system, I can't tell you how to switch it. I can direct you to enter the model of your system into the search box here and download the manual.

Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph


If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

I have an AT&& 1717 answering machine. I would to transfer a message from the machine to my PC. Is there a way to do that?


The only way I can see doing this is to use a recording program on your computer. Plug in a microphone to your audio input and make that the active audio input. For Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Then select Manage Audio Devices. Set your microphone up near the speaker of the answering machine.

Launch the recording software and start a recording session (set the sampling rate), then press Play on the answering machine. Record all the messages until past the one you want to keep. Then use the editing features in the software to delete the early segments.

Audacity is one of the recording software programs that I use but most of my recording is from a cassette tape. I'm using line in and not the microphone.

I hope this helps.

I have a Voca phone RT-250- It does not play back messages. The answering machine plays the recorded message - it records that three messages are there but then doesn't play back the recorded messages.


Need more info here, does the machine record a memo? Set the machine to answer mode and press the little memo button on the very rhs of the machine to start and stop recording.) This should leave a message like through the phone line. Will that play back? Lift the tape lid and see if the tape moves??? With a little more info I can help, I've been repairing those for many many years.

* Format - message file format (amr,wav);
* Icon - configures the visibility of the icon displaying application activity and presence of new messages; depending on this parameter, can be shown in standby screen only (Phone application) or in any application;
* Play volume - play volume for the greeting;
* Records lifetime - automatically removes old messages;

Messages:
In this view you can listen to new and old messages, delete unnecessary messages, send the recorded messages and call the person directly from this view.

During the call:

When Answering Machine is processing an incoming call, you will see a dialog showing the application's progress with the ability to stop it:

* Answer - when this command is chosen during a call, it stops greeting playback or message record and you can continue talking to the caller;

1726 does not record messages


System will not record messages

When memory is full, saved messages must be deleted before new messages can be recorded.

If RO (announce only) is selected, no messages will be recorded.

Panasonic kx-tg2740 cordless phone - how to change message?


  • Step 1Begin the recording process by first locating the "Change" button on your answering machine. This button initializes the answering machine for adjustments to the settings of the various features.
  • Step 2:Locate the microphone on your answering machine and lean towards it until you are about nine inches away.
  • Step 3:Locate the "Annc" button. Press and hold the "Annc" button until it beeps. Begin recording your message.
  • Step 4:Watch the message window while you are recording your message. It keeps track of how much time has elapsed since you began recording. You can record a message that is up to three minutes long.
  • Step 5:Locate the "Stop" button and press it when you have finished recording your message. The answering machine will play your message back at this point. If you are not satisfied with your message, repeat the steps to record it again.
  • Step 6:Press "Annc" if you want to listen to your message again.

Static in the recorded message. AT&T model 1738


The microphone (located inside the unit and faces downward towards the surface below the answering machine) might be defective. One option would be to call into the answering machine and try recording your message that way.

Other than that, there really isn't much you can do for this problem other than replace the unit.
