Message center of GE Phone Mod. No. 29897GE1-A by ATLINKS USA,Inc

Message on phone says "Memory Full" after it announces to leave a message. If we press the message button to play the messages, it says "you have no messages". When someone calls they cannot leave a message.
I have a business and we were away for a week and I had no messages. I don't know how to undo the "Memory Full" mode

    Phone says can't leave message cleared all messages?

I wish I had a solution for you.  My Uncle has the same problem and the manual instructs to unplug/replug the machine and then reset the date and time.  He has done that for a while and now even that isn't fixing the problem.  I find this to be highly unacceptable.  I'm planning to get him another phone that WON'T be GE.

    Unplugging the phone in the back and plugging it in again does work for me. I have had to do this a number of times, mostly forlowing general power outages which have been annoyingly more frequent.

My aswering machine won't allow people to leave a message

There are usually two reasons for this if the machine is on. 1) The memory is full. In that case, delete some messages. 2) The unit is set to Announce Only. This may be the default if you haven't set a personal greeting.

Please add a comment with the model of your machine for additional information on how to change the incoming message options.

(Make sure that your phone/phone line are receiving calls. (Check for dial tone, try calling the number).)

For some older phones and answering systems, the Announce/Number of Rings before picking up was set by a switch on the back or the side of the base. Most newer phones let you set this in the Menu. Try under General Settings > Answering System or an Answering System menu item. (Again without knowing the model, I can't be absolutely sure of the menu and sub-menu lists.)

I hope this helps.

"A" displayed and will not record caller's message

Your answering machine is set to "announce." In this mode it can announce that you're not available to take the call but will not record a message. The machine automatically switches to this mode when its memory is full.
If the memory is not full, you can switch from the "announce" mode to the "answer" mode by pressing the [ANSWER ON/OFF] button until it lights up in red.
If you need a manual, you may view one here.

Trouble shooting

You're in the Announce mode, where the machine plays an announcement but does not record a message. It switches to this mode automatically when memory is full. If the memory is not full, you can switch between the Announce and Answer modes by pressing the [ANSWER ON/OFF] button. You're in the Answer mode when the button lights up red.

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message

Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.
