Question about Vtech 5.8GHz Cordless Phone with Digital Answering System

4 Answers

Can't dial out or receive calls

When we dial a number, it rings, then it beeps about four times and shows a message that says "not available"
What is the problem. These phones are not even 8 months old!

    I think you may be right as my mother in law has had the same problem and has the same system. Just really makes me mad when we are supposed to have "quality control" but it evidently is lacking in this century.
    Thanks

Hi,

A couple of things that you can try:

  • unplug unit (if it were a system's glitch, then this should reset it);
  • verify that the telephone line going to the base unit is active and has no issues. This could be done by temporarily connecting a standard phone in the said line and trying to dial out as well as receive calls;
  • contact your phone service provider and inquire if there are any known issues with this specific model with their line/system or anything out of the ordinary with your subscription/telephone line.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Ensure that you do not have to dial a number like 0 to access line.

    Unplug phone from power for ten minutes to reset it.

    Check the line cables probably phone is not detecting the signal on the line.
    Move phone cables and ensure there is no electrical device, like a power adapter near to the cables.
    If you have a broadband filter try replacing it, or connecting without filter to test.

    I mean The phone cables, the ones that connect to the phone sockets.



    Try first unplugging all power cords and waiting ten minutes, then
    check connection to phone, ensure that the phon cable is not for
    example on top of a power adapter.

    Ginko Aug 29, 2008

    Then you check the phone cable connector is wellin place, eventually unplug it and plug back, both on phone and on socket side.
    Check also that you have signal on phone line , as suggested by Benimur use a phone that you know is working

You can access the answering system remotely by dialing your home telephone number from any touch-tone telephone. To remotely access the answering system
Dial your telephone number from any touch-tone telephone. When the answering system answers, enter the two-digit remote access code (19, unless you have changed it). The answering system automatically announces the number of messages (new or old) if there are any. If there are new messages, the answering system automatically begins to play new messages only. -OR If there are no new messages, the answering system automatically begins to play all old messages. You can also enter the remote commands: Play all messages
1 Press to listen to all messages. If there are new messages, the system plays back only the new messages (oldest first). If there are no new messages, the system plays back all old messages (oldest first). Play new messages
2 Press to listen to new messages only. Delete a message 3 Press during message playback to delete the current message. Delete all old messages
3 Press to delete all old messages. Replay current message or previous message
4 To repeat the message currently playing, press 4 after the answering system plays the day and time the current message was received. To listen to the previous message, press 4 while the answering system is playing the day and time the current message was received. Stop
5 Press to stop playback and recording. Play help menu * 5 Press to listen to a list of remote commands. Skip to next message
6 Press during playback to skip the current message and advance to the next message. Record a announcement
7 Press to record a new announcement. Begin speaking after the long beep. Turn system on or off 0 Press to turn the answering system on or off. Exit
8 or hang up Press to end remote access (the call is terminated). 1. 2. 3. 4.5
0 Answering system Remote access Hang up to end the call and save all messages.
NOTES: If you do not enter a valid remote access code, the system answers the call automatically. If the date and time is not set when a message is recorded, the system announces, "Time and date not set" before the answering system announces the number of messages. If there are no messages in the answering system, the system announces, "You have no message." If there are no new messages in the answering system, when you press 2 to play back new messages, the system announces, "You have no new message." If you pause for more than four seconds during remote access, you hear a help menu listing all features and commands. If there is no command for another 20 seconds, the call ends automatically. If the memory is full, the answering system answers after 10 rings and announces, "Memory is full. Enter the remote access code." Enter your remote access code to access the messages and announcements. When the answering system is turned off, the telephone answers after 10 rings and announces, "Please enter your remote access code."

How to recover saved messages remotely


Hi,

To retrive the messages remotely please follow the steps...

Dialing In to Your System:-

1.Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. (If your answering system is off, it will answer after ten rings and sound a series of beeps instead of your greeting.)

2.During the greeting or beeps, press 0 and immediately enter your security code. If you enter it incorrectly 3 times, the system hangs up and returns to standby.

3.The system announces the current time, the number of messages stored in memory, and a help prompt. It will beep intermittently to let you know it's waiting for your command.

When you hear beeping, enter a 2-digit command from below:-

01Repeat message
02Play message
03Skip message
04Delete message
05Stop playback
06Turn the system on
09Turn the system off
10Hear help prompts

Thanx

How do I increase the rings before message answers?


Setting the Number of Rings (Excerpt from the Uniden Dect 1580 Phone manual

The ring time setting allows you to set the number of rings the caller hears before your answering system plays the outgoing message. You can set the ring time to answer after two, four, or six rings. If you enable the Toll Saver (TS) setting, the answering system picks up after two rings if you have new messages, and after four rings if there are
none. This way, if you make a long distance call to check your messages, you can hang up after the third ring to avoid long distance billing charges.

  1. Press Menu/Select.
  2. Select the Ans. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time submenu.
  3. Move the cursor to select a ring time (Toll Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
  4. Press Menu/Select. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Increase number of phone rings


If you have subscribed to Bell Answer, just lift the receiver and dial *94. After the beeps, enter the number of rings you want before it answers. You will hear a double beep, then hang up. Your rings will have been changed to the number you selected. Repeat as required.

UNIDEN TRU8888-CALLER ID DOES NOT WORK


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think you have stored more than 100 Caller ID messages and hence the caller ID is not showing on Uniden Tru8888. In the following cases the caller ID will not be shown-

If you answer a call before the Caller ID message is received (for example, before the second ring), the Caller ID message will not appear.

When the call is received via a telephone company that does not offer Caller ID service, the caller’s phone number and name does not appear. (This includes some international calls.)

When the call is via a private branch exchange (PBX), the caller's phone number and name may not appear.

You may receive any one of the following messages:

When a private name is received; Private Name
When a private number is received; Private Number
When a unknown name is received; Unknown Name
When a unknown number is received; Unknown Number
When invalid data is received; Incomplete Data

The Caller ID list stores information for incoming calls - even unanswered calls. You can store up to 100 Caller ID messages and phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) for each handset and the base. You can view the Caller ID list through the handset or base during a call or when the phone is in standby mode.

Memory locations for Caller ID messages and Phonebook entries (including Speed Dials) are common, you can store up to all 100 entries for each handset and the base. Caller ID messages are not stored when you have 100 phonebook entries. When you have stored a total of 100 phonebook entries and Caller ID messages, the oldest Caller ID message is overwritten.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

How do I retrieve messages on the Panasonic KX-T7030 phone?


  • Call into your mailbox (usually by dialing intercom 165)
  • Press 4, and 4 again (for "Incomplete call handling")
    By default, three options are enabled:
    option #1: leave a message
    options #5: call the operator
    option #6: return to top menu
  • Follow the audible prompts to disable options 5 and 6

Here are some other features you may need

  • Make sure your Auto Answer button is lit up, so you can receive intercom announcements, and respond hands-free.
  • Use the Call Forwarding (FWD) to send un-answered calls to another phone or to voicemail
  • Press BGM (or 1 on the touch-tone pad) for background music, if your system is equipped.
  • Use Absent Messages to show text messages on other people's phones when you are away.
  • Use System Call Waiting so your phone will ring even when you're on the phone. Press Intercom and dial 7311 to set it up, or 7310 to cancel.
  • Use Do Not Disturb (DND) when you don't want to receive calls. Press Intercom, press FWD/DND and dial 1 to activate, or 0 to cancel.
  • Press MESSAGE when you call a busy intercom number. This will turn on the MESSAGE light on the other phone, and the other person can tap that button to automatically call you back.
  • If you get a busy signal when you call an intercom number, you can signal the other person by dialing 1 (if that phone is programmed for System Call Waiting (above).
  • Dial 330 to make an announcement to all phones.
  • If you want your phone to automatically select an outside line when you pick up the handset, press PROGRAM, dial 99, dial 12, press STORE, press PROGRAM

    I need to retrieve my home phone messages from cell phone


    Activating Call Forwarding

    You can activate Call Forwarding whenever you want your calls to be sent to another phone, including a mobile phone. Once activated, all your calls will be sent to the forwarding number you request. Each time a call is forwarded, you will hear one short reminder tone on your home phone, but you will not be able to answer the call from your home number.

    1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


    2. Press *7 2.
    In some areas you must use 72#
    Dial 1172 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


    3. At the tone, dial the telephone number where you want your calls transferred.
    You will hear the number you entered ring. When the number is answered, Call Forwarding is activated.


    4. If the call is not answered or the line is busy, hang up and call the number again within two minutes.
    You will hear two short tones telling you that Call Forwarding is activated.


    5. Hang up the receiver.

    Deactivating Call Forwarding

    Turn Call Forwarding off when you want to receive calls on your home phone.

    1. Lift your telephone's receiver and listen for a dial tone.


    2. Press * 73.
    In some areas you must use 73#
    Dial 1173 on rotary or pulse-dialing phones.


    3. Listen for two short tones.
    Call Forwarding is now off and you will receive your calls at your home number.
