THERE IS AN A ON THE DISPLAY


Your answering machine is in announce mode, where it plays an outgoing announcement but will not record any messages. To change it, press MENU until the system announces "Set announce only." Press CHANGE until the system announces "Off."
The above is from page 28 of the manual.
