Question about Panasonic KX-TG5632 Phone

1 Answer

Takes messages when turned off.

When I leave town for a couple days I turn the answering machine off because I hate coming home to that blinking light. One relative of mine has discovered that if he lets it ring 20 or so times it'll take a message in spite of me turning the answer function off.

I cannot tolerate a disobedient device. Off means off and I will not stand for being overridden. How, without unplugging the phone, do I make off mean off?

Panasonic has a feature for those who forget to turn their machine on. If the answering system is off, you can turn
it on remotely.
1 Dial your phone number.
2 Let the phone ring 15 times.
The unit answers your call with the
greeting message.
You can hang up, or if you call from a
touch tone phone, you can enter your
remote code and begin remote
operation. Pressing 0 will turn the machine back off.


Most people will not let the phone ring 15 times when calling you. No way to circumvent without unplugging from the phone jack.

Good day Mickey, First I'll provide you with a link to the manual if you need it: http://157.254.235.130/public/25861_current.pdf I know it's a weird lokking link, it's a server from thompson which is the parent company for GE home electronics, not exactly yoo east to find. Anyway on to the problem at hand, To make it answer after more rings there is switch on the back of the base. It hase 3 settings 3/5/TS. If set to 3 it will pick up in rings, set it to 5 and it will pick up in 5 rings. The TS setting stands for TollSaver, do not use this setting, TS will cause it to pick up in 2 rings. Set it to 5, however if you want to get 10rings before it picks up there's a little trick. When the answering machine gets full it will start picking up in 10rings, they do this so you know your answering machine is full. You can still leave a meassge even when it's full, it will automatically delete the oldest message to make room for a new one. However the display on the machin will display an F instead of the number of new messages. Well I hope the helps with that problem, because I hate to be the bearer of bad news but that phone has a maximum capability of 10 speed dials (0-9) and that's the max. There are models on the market with lots of speed dials but there usually corded phones. Well Good Luck & I hope this helps. L8R

I cannot access my messages. They are not going to my answering machine base. The red light indicating I have messages blinks but my machine says "0". Where are they? I want them to come to my mac


You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system takes messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

When people leave me a message - the answering machine does not show that I have a message. The person calling hears the greeting - leaves a message, but I do not receive the message.


It may be similar to the problem I had on wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first.

On my TG 2740 Panasonic base unit the 'answer on' light blinks constantly and 'all mail box full' is blinking also but there are only 17 messages. How do I clear the blinking light and the all mail box...


If mail box is full, you cannot record any more messages, and the answering machine is practically useless. You must clear some messages.
Try playing the messages one by one. While a message is being played hit the Erase button. If that works, repeat with every unimportant message.

Most cordless telephone answering machines have a maximum of 14 minutes recording time. You can restrict the length of messages people are allowed to leave. Most default options are 1min or 4 minutes. Some machines give you the option to select Announcement Only. When this option is selected people hear the announcement but cannot leave a message.

Read you manual for more configuration options.

Can't get the ansewering machine to work? we were gone for 3 days. When we got home the ansewering machine was not blinking, I thouht no loved me! No messages. then relatives called saying they had tried...


You might try unplugging the AC power to the unit, let it sit for 5 minutes, and reconnect the power. That sometimes resets the unit to the factory default. You can then reprogram.

Phone keeps turning on the answering machine all by itself.


figure out how many times it takes for your phones answering machine to automatically turn on, then call your phone company and have them limit the number of times your phone rings. like say at 14 rings if it auto answers at 15 rings.

I have a cordless phone/answering machine,40-channel 900 MHz, #26998. Recently, I am not aware of message until 3-4 days after caller leaves message. what is causing delay?


Make sure your phone service provider is compatible with your home phone. If you contact them they can usually provide you with a list of incompatible phones. Next call your home # see how many rings before your answering machine picks up. Check to make sure message is clear and audible. :Leave yourself a message. Note the time it takes for your message to become retrievable. If there is a signicant delay there might be a equipment malfunction and you should contact phone manufacturer.
