Here's some suggestions from the Vtech site:

If the battery(s) has been in service for more than one year....
As a rechargeable battery gets older, its ability to hold a charge decreases. If your battery has been in service for more than twelve months, it may be a good idea to replace it.

If you are replacing the battery and you need assistance, visit our Battery Finder link. If a battery for your model is unavailable, you can search the Internet using the key words cordless phone batteries for an on-line supplier. If you prefer to purchase locally, you can look for a replacement battery at your area consumer electronics retailers. It is recommended that you take your present battery with you to insure your replacement is the correct size and has the correct plug (where applicable) and specifications (for example - 3.6v 400mAh Ni-Cd). Caution when replacing batteries
If your model takes individual cells, do not use non-rechargeable batteries. Use only the recommended rechargeable batteries as prescribed in your User's Manual.

If the battery(s) has been in service for less than one year....
If the handset shows any sign of life (any lights; characters on the display screen; sounds when keys are pressed), your handset is not dead, making it unlikely that a new battery will fix the problem. Consider the following:

Is the base unit getting power?
If your base unit is not getting power, your handset is not charging. Tip: Do not plug your Base Power Adaptor into an electrical outlet controlled by a switch (for example, a light switch on the wall or a power strip with an On/Off switch).

If your battery pack is the plug-in type, is it securely plugged into the handset?
Disconnect, and then reconnect the battery plug to ensure a good connection. In addition, make sure the battery cover is on securely.

Do you see any charge indicators on the base or handset?
Depending on your model, the handset and/or base will have indicators to let you know when the battery is charging. Check your User's Manual for details.

Remember, if the handset shows any sign of life (any lights; characters on the display screen; sounds when keys are pressed), then is not dead, making it unlikely that a new battery will fix the problem. Try the following reset procedure:

Reset your Phone
If your telephone is not operating normally, disconnect the battery(s) from the handset and disconnect power from the base. After a few minutes, connect power to the base, install the battery(s) and cradle the handset in the base to allow it to establish a link. You can now try using your phone again.

Most likely the microphone hole at/near the bottom of the phone is clogged with dirt. If you are able to, then dissasemble the handset, find that opening and clean it out. If you're not that brave, maybe try cleaning the hole with a toothbrush. Don't stick anything into the hole as you may damage the microphone. Hop this helps!

With my Moto-G I press the volume button then tap the top icon till it shows a bell. Pressing both buttons together can also toggle sound on/off.

There are a few reasons to get a line in use message; the message indicates that the phone does not detect a dial tone. For a simple corded phone, the problem could be the phone wire, the jack, the wiring between the jack and the incoming service or the service line. For all phone types, I use a simple corded phone for some of the testing. Try a new RJ-11 cord between the jack and the phone. Do you hear a dial tone? Make sure that you didn't use a handset cord in the place of the RJ-11 cable. Try a different phone. If there is a dial tone, replace the first phone. If you have another jack on the same phone line, try using the test phone at that jack. If you have a dial tone at the second jack, you have a wiring problem at the first jack or in the wiring to that jack. If you do not have a dial tone, find your incoming phone service box. If you are lucky, you have RJ-11 jacks inside the box. Plug your test phone into that jack and check for a dial tone. If you have a dial tone, you have a wiring problem. If there is no dial tone, the problem is the outside line. If you have a DSL line, check the DSL filter. If it's inside, you may need to replace it. If it's in the service box, ask your phone company to check it.

If you have a cordless phone system, you can have additional problems beyond those for a corded system. Check if the base has power. (Is the power transformer warm or cold?) If that is plugged in and cold, check if there is a switch or circuit breaker that is off. Replace the transformer if the power was good and check the phone again. If the transformer was warm, then check if the handsets were too far from the base. Move into the room with the base and see if the handset and base can communicate. You may want to check the find handset option. If the handset doesn't respond, check if the handset is registered with the base. You may need to replace the phone system. (If it is under warranty, contact Panasonic.)

If you have a problem with a specific jack, you can remove the face plate and check for loose wires. Some jacks use a keystone. These wires will need to be pushed back into the keystone with a push-down tool that is available at most hardware stores in the electrical section. The other type of jack uses screws to secure the wires. You need to strip the conductors and secure them in the correct position. See https://www.lanshack.com/wire_phone_jack.aspx for the wiring diagram. (If you have the wires connected to the wrong pins, your phone won't detect the dial tone or the call signals.) If the problem is inside the walls, you may want to have the wiring done by someone else. There will be a service charge but it's often easier than accessing all of the wiring yourself. (If you have a single story home with an open basement to inspect the wiring, then it could be easy.) If the problem is at the service box and outside, then your phone company should fix the problem for free. (Some companies don't won't to do this and may try to sell you a service upgrade if you have copper wiring.)

I've lost dial tone to all of the wired phones from: a contractor who cut a wire while digging and rodents who chewed on the underground wires. A lightning strike took out the DSL filter once and killed the voice line. Since upgrading to fiber optics, I still lost the dial tone intermittently due to a faulty modem in the service box. I've lost a single phone extensions from someone using a handset cord (simple fix) and a service upgrade where the technician didn't connect all of the phone cables to the service box at the end of the job. Since the wire was loose behind the vinyl siding, it was easy to fix.

I hope this helps.

ManualsLib has the manual for the Panasonic KX-TG8421E digital cordless answering system here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/650444/Panasonic-Kx-Tg8421e.html . You will need to solve a Captcha if you want the manual as a PDF. The manual as a PDF is also available here: http://www.telephonesuk.co.uk/user_guides/DECT_Phones/KX-TG8421E_User_Guide_PNQX1708ZA.pdf .

I hope this helps. Note: the last digit indicates the number of handsets in the package. The E indicates where the phone system was sold.

The VTech CS6124 does not have a DND feature. The ringer volume could be set to Off. For the handset(s), press Menu (the big round button below the LCD screen) on a handset when the phone system is idle (no handsets in use). Use the arrow keys (CID/Vol- and Phone Book/Vol+) to navigate to Ringers and press Select (same as the Menu button) twice. Press the Vol+ to increase the volume. You will hear the current ringer volume. Repeat pressing Vol+ until you reach a volume that you prefer. Press Select to save the setting and then press Off to exit the menu system. To adjust the ringer volume at the base, press the Up/Down buttons when the phone system is idle.

The manuals are available from VTech's product support page: https://www.vtechphones.com/support/technical-support/product/1516 . The full manual is currently available here: https://cdn-web.vtp-media.com/products/CS/CS6124/CS6124-X_WEBCIB_V7_20190916.pdf . See pages 16-17 (page 23-24 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Maybe your phone is not working or is broken then

Based on the documentation for the KX-T76XX phones, you can cancel the Call Forwarding by picking up the handset of your KX-T7630. Then press the FWD/DND button. Next press 0 to cancel all call forwarding. See page 17 of the manual here: https://www.ask-tsc.com/pdf/KX-T76xx.pdf . (You can also select to cancel call forwarding for external or internal incoming calls separately, if needed.)

If pressing 0 does not work, did you lock the extension? See page 18 for information on unlocking the extension. If that fails, contact your phone system administration. As far as I know, there is no global reset option available to users of an extension.

I hope this helps.

There is no user replaceable battery in the AT&T 1725 answering system. If the unit is disconnected from power, it will hold the announcement and messages that are recorded on the digital memory. However, it will lose the current time (you'll see the CL code) and could loose the current Remote Access code. If you wish to avoid resetting the time after short power outages, you should invest in an uninterruptable power supply (UPS).

This is from the manual available at ManualsLib: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/10390/AtAndt-1725.html .

I hope this helps.

KX-TGA101S is an add-on handset for a Panasonic KX-TG1000 series cordless phone system. One of the models that is compatible with the handset is the KX-TG1032S. You can find the manual for the phone system on the product page here: https://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/KX-TG1032S.html . Assuming that you do not have voice mail from your telephone provider, you can change the number of rings from the Answering Device Settings Menu.

Start with the phone system in standby (no incoming or outgoing calls) mode. Press Menu and use the up/down keys to navigate to Answering Device. Press OK to enter the sub-menu. Navigate to Settings and press OK. Navigate to Ring Count and press OK. Use the up/down arrows to choose a new number of rings. Press OK to save and press Off to exit the menu system. Note: if the ring count is set to Toll Saver mode, the answering system will pick up on the second ring if there are new messages. It will pick up the incoming call on the fourth ring if there are no new messages.

See page 31 of the manual for the KX-TG1032 for this information. See page 23 for the way to navigate through the menu and a list of the menu tree items. The current link to the manual is ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/telephone/om/kx-tg1031_en_om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Hi John - Going to need a lot more information to help. Is this a cordless home phone, a cellphone, or is the voicemail hosted by your landline Telco / VOIP provider? For a cellphone or provider-hosted voicemail, you call a specific shortcut # number to access your options, then walk through the options. Can you please add details in the comment box?

You need to have caller id activated on your phone line and it is a subscribed to feature and is not free. Contact your service provider for more information.
