Question about AT&T 1717 Digital Answering Machine
Machine will answer but does not record the caller's message.
It maybe hardware issue. Make sure the recording DTAM chip is working. You can try to record your personal annoucement, to see if the chip still record message.

Tips for a great answer:
Recording Your Announcement
Before using this answering system, you
should record the announcement (up to
one minute long) that callers will hear
when the system answers a call. If you
choose not to record an announcement,
the system answers with a prerecorded
announcement: "Hello. Please leave a
message after the tone."
1 Press and hold annc/skip. The system
beeps. Speak toward the microphone
normally, from about nine inches away.
While you are recording, the Message
Window displays -.
2 To stop recording, release .annc/skip
The system automatically plays back
To review your announcement, press
and release .annc/skip
