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.

A caller hears my announcement but the machine cuts off before a messages can be recorded

There a chance your machine recorded too many messages, which actually means, the memory is full and should be cleaned / wiped.
Check the manual or download it here and see for page 5 at subtitle deleting messages.
