First of all, here is a link to a site where you can download the USER"S MANUAL for free:

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above.
This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.

When you get to the RETREVO page, click on the blue DOWNLOAD THE DOCUMENT button on the left hand side.

Once you click on that and get to the next page, don't bother typing your email address in the empty box, it's not necessary. Only the CAPTCHA underneath is.

Just TYPE IN THE NUMBERS SHOWN BELOW into the second empty box.

Then click the red DOWNLOAD NOW button.

When the computer asks if you want to open or save the file, CHOOSE SAVE.

Then select a place on your computer to save the file (like the desktop), and then click SAVE.

Once the download is complete, which should only take a few seconds, then select OPEN.

Then you will see the contents of the USER'S MANUAL which is now saved on your computer for viewing anytime.

If it does not open, then you may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read the PDF document.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there and then follow the onscreen instructions to install it.

Thank you very much and good luck.

You could always simply turn the volume down? to the speaker, well as long as she uses the handset?

Here's how we fixed it. The official solution in the manual is to unplug the machine for 20 minutes. That didn't help. Apparently, we needed to do it for longer. After we left both ends of the power cord (from the wall and the machine) unplugged for about 5 hours, the machine magically worked again -- and no more code 8.

My phone was also flashing CL and the 0, after a power outage. After I set the date and time it was fixed. Press the flash button on the handset and use the caller ID buttons to set AM or PM; use the numbers to input the correct time. Then press #. Repeat for setting the day and press # again.

There are zero message on the machine, but the machine says "messages full" to the caller after if answers and plays my recorded message. It also flashes "F" on the display. I can't figure out how to reset it so that it will answer my calls. Can you help?

I called the support number in the manual. They said to try a power off and power on sequence. Unplug phone line and then power, wait 10 minutes, and replug phone then power. If that doesn't work they said it is defective. My machine still didn't work so I am replacing it.

Hw do I reset/reprogram Model: 29871GE3 answering machine? No manual.

If you have not changed the code, it should be set to the default code 1-2-3. Call the phone with the answering machine, and as soon as your greeting starts press 123. You will then hear a menu. Press 1 to retrieve your messages. After listening to your messages, you can listen to the menu again, which will tell you that you can press 0 to delete your messages, among other choices. Cathy
