20 Most Recent AT&T 1717 Digital Answering Machine Questions & Answers


That is a shame. I also have my late wife's message on my answerphone and my sister in law and I would be sad to lose it. I heard her voice today. Phones usually have a small backup battery to keep things like announcements in the memory. It may be that your phone is old and this battery is not functioning any longer. The first thing I would do is remove it from the power, count to 10 and plug it back in.

The machine contains an internal battery, to keep things stored in memory. This battery will loose it's capacity over time. Keep in mind, that whenever there will be a powerfailure, the personal pre-recorded message will get lost.
If your machine is still in warranty-period, call customer-service and ask for a repair. If To repair this yourself, it's required to have some technical knowledge and skills about electronics. If you lack 1 or both of them, it's better to look for a new(er) machine.

But, no matter what you do, you've to accept the loss of the spoken message of your daughters.

Sounds like you may have the volume too high on your music. Try moving away from the speaker and lowering the volume.
