A caller hears my announcement but the machine cuts off before a messages can be recorded


There a chance your machine recorded too many messages, which actually means, the memory is full and should be cleaned / wiped.
Check the manual or download it here and see for page 5 at subtitle deleting messages.

I need to change the message and do not remember how on my Lucent Tech. 1710 machine. How do I do it?


Hi you can try these steps: An answering machine is a device which will answer the phone on your behalf after a certain number of rings. It will play a recorded message for your callers before it is ready to record their message. You can use the manufacturer's preset automated message or you can change it by recording your own outgoing message.

  • Compose your message ahead of time. If not, you may end up stumbling, looking for the right words while you are recording your message or leaving out some important details. Composing your message before you begin recording will save you from having to record several messages before you find one with which you are satisfied.
  • Step 2Make it easy for your callers to listen your message. Record your message in a relatively quiet room without background noise. Speak loudly and clearly. For the benefit of callers who don't have much time, make your message as brief and to the point as possible.

    Short record time on my answering machine


    The only thing I can think of is that there is a switch which determines recording time, there was on mine and then there was the VOX option which only recorded as long as they were speaking and cut them off if they didn't talk quickly. You might check and see if somehow they got turned on.

    Not recording


    Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
    record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
    recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
    the caller from leaving a message.
    1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
    Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
    2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
    (1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only)
    3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

    User manual of GE 29878GE1 Digital Answering Machine


    From the Manual: RECORDING THE GREETING Before using your new answerer, you should record a greeting (the announcement callers hear when your answering system answers a call). If you don't record a greeting, callers hear a default greeting which says, "Record message after tone." When recording the greeting you should be about 6 inches from the unit. Eliminate as much background noise as possible. 1. Prepare your greeting. Sample Greeting: Hi, this is (use your name here). I can?t answer the phone right now, so please leave your name, number, and a brief message after the tone, and I?ll get back to you. Thanks. 2.Hold down the GREETING button. After the tone, you have 30 seconds to record your greeting. 3.Release the GREETING button when you finish. The greeting will playback automatically. NOTE: Your recording time should not be less than 2 seconds. Otherwise the unit will return to the default greeting.
