Press the >>/Time Set button for about 2 seconds. The system will announce "Monday" press the >>/Time Set again to choose the correct day. Press <</Time Check to change to hours. Select the correct hours by pressing the >>/Time Set, then press the <</Time check to change to minutes. I can't get the mail box 2 to operate either.

I've lost my manual and can't remember how to change and record a new the greeting. Thanks for your help. Fran


At the base unit press the MEMO button, then press one of the mailbox buttons(MAILBOX 1, MAILBOX 2, or MAILBOX 3) begin recording into the MIC at a adistance of 8 inches after the long beep. Press the MEMO button to end and save the recording. If a caller leaves a message without choosing a mailbox, the message will be recorded in mailbox 1. Here is a link to download the manual.

Cannot figure out to set answering machine on my vtech, I recevied as gift.


Turn on the answering machine by pressing the on/off button on the base. Set the time and date by pressing the Time/Set button (to the right of the menu button) and pressing Change until the correct day or time is heard. Then press Time/Set again.

To record a message, press Menu until you hear "Set Outgoing Message", then press Record and speak the message (include the mailbox info if you are using them). Press any Play/Stop button to end the message.

Set the various features by pressing Menu to access each one, then press Change to change the setting. Press Time/Set to lock in the change and press Menu to change the next feature. Press a Play/Stop key to leave the menu.

The most important one is "Set Announce Only" to Off for callers to leave a message.

All messages will go into Mailbox 1 unless the caller indicates a different mailbox. Press the Mailbox button to hear new messages if the mailbox has a mix of new and old messages. Press the button a second time to hear all messages. Skip/Quick lets you advance to the next message and Repeat/Slow will let you hear a message again.

Press Vol (up) to adjust the base speaker volume higher during playback.

In the menu, the first option lets you set the two digit security code to access the messages when you call in from another phone. When calling press # followed by 1, 2, or 3 to access the desired mailbox. Press #4 to repeat a message. #5 to skip. Press *0 to end the remote call.

For the full manual, see: http://www.vtechphones.com/vtechphones/index.cfm/support/manuals/ and scroll down to 5866.

I hope this helps.

(all this assumes the base is on (connected to power) and connected to a good phone line. Without power it will not work at all. I test phone lines for dial tone with an old corded phone.)

I'm trying to set up my voice mail and I am getting a message "mailbox locked". Is there a generic password I can enter that will work? Too, can you send me a step-by-step go-by to set up my mailbox?...


If you recieve the message "mailbox locked" then the password was incorrectlyentered too many times.
To reset your password press feature 983
the screen should say log:
enter 1020000 (default password) if you have a 3 digit intercom number, 120000 if you have a 2 digit intercom number
the display should say mbox, AA, and othr above the three soft keys
press the mbox soft key
the screen should say add, del, and chng above the soft keys
press the chng soft key
enter in the mailbox number you wish to reset the password on
press ok
the screen should say reset and next above the soft keys
press the reset soft key
press the Rls key
your password should be reset to 0000

As far as setting up your Mailbox, press your open mailbox key or press feature 981.
When prompted to enter your password enter the password of 0000.
The voice mail will make you change and confirm your password at this point. your password can be between 4 and 8 digits but cannot start with a 0.
after the password is changed the voice mail will make you record your name for the company directory. once the name recording is accepted, the mailbox will be at your main screen.
To record a greeting for your mail box,
"8"for admin
"2" for greetings
"1" for record
"1" for primary greeting
"'1" to record your greeting
at the tone record your greeting
"#" to end recording
after you record press 1 to listen 2 to retry or # to accept
press "rls" key when finished

Need to delete old voice message, can someone help


Erasing Messages

The unit will announce the remaining recording time after playback, if it is less than
5 minutes. New messages cannot be recorded when:
— “Memory full” is heard.
— “ ” is displayed on the base unit.
— ANSWER ON indicator flashes rapidly (only when the Answering System is on).

Erase some, or all, of the messages in a mailbox. We recommend you erase unnecessary messages after each playback.


Erasing a specific message
Press [ERASE] while the message you want to erase is being played.
• A short beep will sound and the unit will continue to play the next message.
Press [ ][4] while the message you want to erase is being played.
• A short beep will sound and the unit will continue to play the next message.

Erasing all messages in the mailbox
1. Press the soft key ( ).
2. Press the soft key ( , or ).
• If Mailbox 2 or 3 has a password, enter it (p. 51).
3. Press [ ][5] to erase all messages in the mailbox.
• A long beep will sound and “Mailbox (No.)” and “No messages” will be heard.
• To end remote operation, press [OFF].

I hope you rate this solution. Thank you and goodluck!

Describe your NorStar M7100 Corded My phone display shows ?message for you?, but I have no new or old messages. The display should show the date and time. We did reinitialize the mailbox and the same above...


Your phone may have another mailbox associated with it, like the general delivery mailbox which can be mail box 100, try logging into 100 with default password of 0000. I am assuming you have 3 digit extension, if 2 digit login into mailbox 10.

Need setup help for ep5962


first set day and time... menu, mailboxes, set day/time, scroll to day, set, select, ok... then scroll to current time, set, dial pad four digits, 2 for am or 7 for pm, select save. now power on line 1 or 2 or both. phone is preprogrammed with 'hello, please leave a message after the tone.' to record your own use menu, mailboxes, select setup 1 or 2, then review/chng oga, then record new oga, then ok. record when screen changes, choose stop when you're done. shortcut: press and hold record, press and release mailbox line x, release when finished. you only record one line at a time, so you can have different messages on each line. even if it's the same, you must record each line. since you can only record one message the shortcut would be useful for an 'out to lunch, be back about 1-30' sort of message. then re-record a standard message when you get back from lunch. 'course, you really don't need an 'out to lunch' message, since people are accustomed to answering machines at any time of day. all the caller needs to know is that 'i can't get to the phone right now.' and they appreciate it when you keep it short.
