How do I program the machine to record messages? My message plays, but there is no record of my recording when I leave a message?


You have announce set to on, where callers can hear your message but cannot leave one of their own.

The instructions for changing this are on page 28 of the manual at

Bought second hand i how do I change the answer phone message to mine?


Hello. I have located the owner manual for your phone and I will provide the link at the end of this response. If all you wish to do is change the outgoing message to your own, do the following:

The OGM is your announcement to the caller and may be up to 2 minute in length. If
you choose not to record your own OGM, the caller will hear a prerecorded OGM. Use
your OGM to advise the caller to begin talking after a beep is heard. For example:
“Hello, we are unable to take your call right now, please leave a message after the beep,
and we’ll return your call as soon as possible. Thank you for calling.”
Recording your OGM
1. Press .
2. The total number of (new) recorded ICM’s will now be announced.
3. Press 8 to stop playback.
4. Press 4 5.
5. Record your OGM.
6. Press 8 to stop recording.
7. Your OGM will be repeated after a few seconds. Repeat the same procedure if
you wish to change the OGM. Any old OGM will automatically be erased when
a new one is recorded.

Here is the link I promised: http://www.doro.com/global/businessunit/dorocare/support/imagesdownloads

please rate my answer. thanks. Regards, Joe

How to change Flash timing


The only reference to flash timing I can find in the manual is shown below for you, also here is link to manual :
I hope it helps !
http://www.uniden.com/products/productdetail.cfm?product=TRU8885-2

If you have Call Waiting service and a call waiting
tone sounds while you are on a call, press talk/flash
on the handset or flash/find hs on the base to accept
the waiting call. There is a short pause, and then you
will hear the new caller. To return to the original
caller, press talk/flash on the handset or flash/find
hs
on the base again.

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" 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.
Setting the Record Time
Record Time sets the duration for recording the incoming messages. You have three
record time options. The options "1 minute" or "4 minutes" set the duration for
recording the incoming messages. "Announce only" answers the call but prevents
the caller from leaving a message.
1) Enter the Answ. Setup menu, and then the Record
Time submenu (see "Entering the Menu" on page 16).
2) Press volume up/down to select Record Time
(1 Minute, 4 Minutes, or Announce Only).
3) Press the OK soft key. You will hear a confirmation tone.
