The 29385GE1 isn't an answering machine. It will continue to ring until someone or something picks up or the caller hangs up. Please repost your question, giving the make and model of your answering machine.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
This is sometimes a bad luck. Try another set of batteries. You have to turn the phone upside down to put them in. I read the pamphlet and there is no setting showing that number 16 for volume up. DOUBLES as a display up.

Thank You

The date and time is supplied with the caller ID information from your phone service provider. When you get a call, the date and time will be set. (If you don't have caller ID, there's no way to set the date and time otherwise. I've always wondered who came up with such a silly design.)

There is a small electric condenser microphone in the handset where you talk, chances are the mic is defective and must be replaced. Radio Shack use to carry two or three different types, not sure if they are available. The handset will need to be dismantled and some solder work required.

Need more info here, does the machine record a memo? Set the machine to answer mode and press the little memo button on the very rhs of the machine to start and stop recording.) This should leave a message like through the phone line. Will that play back? Lift the tape lid and see if the tape moves??? With a little more info I can help, I've been repairing those for many many years.

Use the FLASH button to access and setup the call waiting feature.

Also download this Manual. Manual is pretty basic and flash setup menu is not explained in detail.

please don't shoot the messenger but the only way you can get it back is to call your phone company and have them do it for you. once you erase from your phone it is permanently gone from your phone. there will be a fee from the phone company if you have them retrieve it for you.
