Answering machine does not work for second number on our line

Hi:

We have a main number and a secondary number which according to telus is just a phone number which is distinguished by a different ring. When people call this second number they get a shrieking sound similar to when you phone a fax no. How can I get the answering machine to answer with the recording so people can leave messages when phoning this second number. I hope you can help!!

The model of my AT&T answering machine is 1720...it is linked to a Brother's fax machine...when a call comes in I am not able to pick up the phone and interrupt the message from the answering machine...


Connect the telephone line of the answering machine from the series connection of the facts machine
.Now set the number of rings for the answering machine to activate to the maximum.{This is found on the side of the machine as a reed switch.}
Now when the calls comes in there is enough time for you to allow it to the answering machine or to attend a call or to set it to facts if a document is comming.While you are away you have to decide the priority needed for either facts or answering as it is a commonline. If answering machine has to work set the facts to telephone mode.If facts has to work set it to facts as the machine will activate before the answering machine.

How to set number of rings


Use Ring Select to choose how many times
the line will ring before the system
answers a call. Set for 2, 4 or Toll Saver.
When you set the system for Toll Saver, it
answers after four rings when you have no
new messages, and after two rings when
you have new messages.
1. Press and hold "set up" for about two
seconds. The system announces the
current ring selection.
2 Press and release "ANNC/SKIP" or "MEMO/REPEAT"
until the system announces your ring
selection.
3 Press and release "Play/Stop" to exit

Fax and answring machine on same line


I assume you have distinctive ringing since both numbers are on the same line. According to the manufacturer's specs, the fax machine supports distinctive ringing. Set it up for the ring pattern assigned to the fax number and to answer on the first ring. Then it will pick up right away when someone calls the fax machine, and the answering machine will pick up the other number.

Parasonic auto-logic answering machine


Hello, yes it sounds like your trying to connect a "analog device" to a "digital" telephone. If you wish to connect the answering machine to answer your line or lines, you should contact your facilities maintenance department and see if they can "hardwire" your telephone line (your primary phone number), to another jack in your office so your answering machine will work by being placed in "parallel" with your phone system and your primary phone number. If you have more than one phone line (number) you wish for the machine to answer, you will need to ask for a "analog extension" from your digital phone system and have it programmed to ring when any of your roll over lines ring. However, keep in mind the machine can only answer one call at a time, the other simultaneous callers will get a ring no answer until the first caller has hung up. Good luck, hoped to help. CG
