I know that this is an old problem, but there is an On/Off switch on the base that allows you to enable/disable the answering machine for each telephone line.

Make sure that the switch's setting is correct.

Here is the link to the 2462's owner's manual. Look at page 31:

Hi. My At&t Cordless 2 Hand set Telephone (EL52213) Answering machine (ON) doesn't record incoming messages. The Message window shows 0. The Telephone base is connected with my FAX machine (Teleph

If your Phone service is recording messages, that disconnects your line. You need to have them turn that feature off, OR set the answering machine to answer is less rings, say two or three. If the FAX machine listens to the line, it can still be set at a higher amount of rings, say four, and should still answer any FAX signal as it's sent to the answering machine.

The digital answering machine on my GE29893 telephone does not work.

It seems that your messages are full. This will happen if you dont delete all messages. Try that first. Then try the answer button. Sometimes we turn it on but forget to actually have it answer calls. Make sure your rings are set to 4 rings then you will know if it will answer after 4 rings. If it still won't answer after 4 rings then junk it. They are so cheap to buy a new one. They are not worth fixing these days. it is sad i know.
Good Luck

THE ANSWERING SYSTEM WON'T RECORD MESSAGES,ALL MESSAGES GOES INTO POOVIDERS VOICE MAILE, AS IF MY PHONE IS BUSSEY?????? I CHECKED AND RECORD TIME IS NOT SET TO ANNOUNCE ONLY ANS ALL MESSAGES HAVE BEEN...

This happens when the number of rings to answer of the provider voicemail is less than the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. For example: if your provider voicemail rings to answer is set for 3 rings and the answer machine is set for 4 rings then the voicemail answers before the 4th ring, therefore the answer machine will never get a message. I would call the service provider's customer service number and request they increase the rings to answer above the number of rings to answer that the answer machine is set for. If you don't want voicemail to answer any calls(when your line is busy or when the answer machine is turned off) ask your service provider to disable voicemail.

Number of rings

Looks like 6 is the Max, according to the Manual.

Setting the Ring Time
Ring Time 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), the answering system
picks up after two rings if you have new messages and after four rings if there are
none.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Ring Time
submenu (see "Entering the Menu Option" on
page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select a Ring Time (Toll
Saver, 2 Times, 4 Times, or 6 Times).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Toll saver is a feature where you can call the phone yourself, if there are messages it wil answer in 2 rings, if not it'll answer in 4 rings. The idea is to hang up on the 3rd ring and save the LD changes.

Hope that fixed Ya...

Phone rings many times with no answering message coming on and no messages recorded

I can't seem to get the security code entered.  It won't change.  None of the numbers will change when I try to set it up.
