Question about Motorola Mobility MD4260-2 Twin Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Motorola MD4260 For some reason, the "you've got messages" beep keeps beeping. I deleted all messages and it said 0. But then it went back to showing a 1, and keeps beeping. I've tried disconnecting the power supply to reset it, but that doesn't seem to help. I even tried turn the answering machine part of the phone off, but it will still keep beeping. Thank you.

    Im having this problem too and, of course, Motorola isnt open on the weekends for cordless phone tech support. Anyone figure out how to fix this yet? I had mine unplugged all night and when I woke up, I hooked it back up, and its still beeping.

I had the same problem.
Here is the solution that I received from Motorola tech support:

1.Delete all messages
2. Unplug the power and re-apply power
3. Quickly press and release << (previous message) and >> (next message) buttons together while the "Press review to receive setup instructions" message is playing.
The display will change from a segment scanning clockwise to anti-clockwise
4. Quickly press and release the On/Off button before the "Press review to receive setup instructions" ends. The display will change to a square scanning clockwise.
Note, this goes by quickly. I had to repeat steps 1-4 a couple of times before I got it right.
5. Press and release the delete button. The unit will emit a beep.
6. Press and release the on/off button. The unit will emit another beep and annouce "Press review to receive setup instructions"
Done!

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I have the same problem -- the machine got into this mode after I called to retrieve messages and accidentally entered the wrong security code. This apparently left an empty "message" that cannot be deleted. I also tried unplugging it (long enough for it to forget the date and time), but it didn't work. Also tried looking in the manual for a "factory reset" option, but couldn't find one.

We don't know how to retrieve out messages from outside the house.


To play back messages remotely, first you'll need to have set up your two-digit security code (PIN). You can download a copy of the manual here which gives all the details. Once you've done that, here's how to use the system:

1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off), press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds. The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
3) Enter a command within 15 seconds. Each command thereafter must be entered within 2 seconds. These are the available commands:
  • 0 then 1 Repeat a Message*
  • 0 then 2 Playing incoming Messages
  • 0 then 3 Skipping a Message
  • 0 then 4 Deleting a Message
  • 0 then 5 Stop Operation
  • 0 then 6 Answering System On
  • 0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop**
  • 0 then 9 Answer System Off
  • 1 then 0 Help
* For the Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to repeat the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat the current message.

**For the Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, press 0 then 7, 8 or 5.

4) After the command has finished, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart above.
5) Hang up when you're done.
