Are all phones on your line having this issue? Is it a GE system with expandable (multiple) phone handsets? Make sure you have touchtone service with your local phone company. If you are getting a dial tone but can't break dial tone when you press a button; do you hear the touch tone? If so, it may be the phone comany line. Provide as much detail as possible such as were the phomes working at first but then stopped or never worked at all.

    Determine if the problem is with one phone or all of the
    phones if there is more than one in the home. If another phone is working, unplug it and plug it in where
    the trouble phone was. If the new phone works, you know the problem is in the
    phone that was plugged in there. To check further, plug the dysfunctional phone
    into a working phone jack. It will not work there either. It is time to buy a
    new phone.


    If no phone in the house has a dial tone, unplug one and take it to the
    junction box. When you open the junction box, you will see a phone jack. Unplug
    the wire from the jack and plug in the phone using an extension cord to provide
    power if it is cordless. Does the phone have a dial tone now? If it does, it
    means that the problem is in the phone wiring to the house from the junction box. If it doesn’t, it is time
    to call the phone company because the problem is theirs.


    Another thing to check is the handset battery. A cordless phone goes dead
    when the battery does.

You may download a copy of the manual at http://www.home-electronics.net/ge/pc/IB/29490GE2_IB.pdf.

The 29490 isn't an answering machine. To set up the voicemail, please consult the documentation for whatever answering machine or voicemail system you have on your phone line.

Call forwarding is a service provided by your telephone company. With many systems, dial * 7 2, wait for a second dial tone, then dial the number to forward to. Answer that other phone to confirm. Dial * 7 3 to cancel. If these instructions don't work then contact your telephone company for their instructions regarding call forwarding.

NOT RECEIVING MESSAGES


Not sure but if its a GE answering machine if you turn on the answer feature and then hold down the message skip button for 2 or 3 seconds and release it changes the language back to english. If you then hold down the review/playback button (keep holding) it beeps, after the beep speak your message when done release the button. If you want to review your message press the review/playback(cant remember exactly what its called) and release it.

Wish to use the telephone company answering system how do I turn


There is a button marked "ANS ON/OFF" right on the base to control the answering machine function. The display shows "--" when answering is off, otherwise it shows the number of messages.

The manual says you can delete messages one at a time from the handset, or all at once or one at a time from the base.

You can download the manual from GE here:

is the incoming phone line plugged into the answering machine directly? the answering machine should then be plugged into the phone. the signal comes through the answering machine then to the phone. you may have the connections reversed on the answering machine. check those connections.

GE Telephone answering machine will not work


I'm assuming this is a digital recorder and does not use a tape. Any chance the memory is full and you need to erase messages to free up space for new recordings?
