V tech digital answering machine gives wrong date when playing back messagess


Apparently you have the wrong date set on your answering machine. Since you declined to specify the model of your VTech digital answering machine I can't tell you how to set the date. I can direct you to enter the model into the search box here to download a copy of the manual.

Need information on how to set time & date on a GE


Press and hold the STOP/SET button for two seconds, then release to access the set-up menu. The time/date setting follows the language.

The full details are in the "Changing the Settings" section of the manual (page 10 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you can download one at

HOW DO i SET TIME ON A 43-3829 ANS MACHINE???


Hello,


One thing Radio Shack's answering machine [model number 43-3829], is NOT, is intuitive. But I guess you know that already. ;-)

To set the date and time, perform each of the steps below in quick succession, otherwise the machine will drop you out of the process and you’ll have to start over. You have about five seconds between each step, so try and make a mad dash for the finish line (Steps 4.-5.).

Setting Date and Time on Your Answering Machine:

(To set Day…)

1. Turn the answering machine on and hold down the TIME SET/CHECK/>> button until it beeps twice.

2. Press ANNC/DAY/<< repeatedly until the correct day displays / is indicated.

(To set Hour…)

3. Press REC repeatedly until you reach/hear the correct hour.

(To set Minutes…)

4. Press >|| (PLAY) repeatedly until you hear the correct minute(s).

(To Review/Confirm...)

5. Press TIME SET/CHECK/>> once. The machine will play the time and day you entered.


Note:

To exit/cancel the time- and date-setting mode, press ON/OFF/STOP once.

Hope this helps! If you have additional questions, please let me know and I’ll do my best to help.
