How can I fix my GE Cordless phone.?

My GE 2.4GHz cordless phone's answering machine tells the date and time in spanish instead of english. How do I switch it back? I can't find my manual. The model # is 27996GE3-A.

In my search to resolve the same issue, I found ATLINKS, which is the manufacturer of GE Communication Products. After clicking on the link and looking around for several minutes, I was able to view their basic cordless phone products, which includes those with answering machines. By clicking on this link, (or copy and paste) http://www.homeelectronics.net/ge/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=5
you'll be able to select a model based on the GHz of the phone, rather than the model number. Example, 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz, etc. Take a look at your phone and determine its GHz, then select one of the five links that best decribe your phone. This, will take you to another page where you can click on a specific model that looks similar to yours. You can do this, by clicking on the picture, or "More Options" button. Once this page opens, you'll see a blue box that reads "Product Information & Downloads". In this same box, you're given two options... Select the one that reads "Product Instruction Book". This will open a Manual in pdf format that you can either save, or print. (However, I'd recommend "saving" it, because it "prints" in very small letters that are hard to read. If you save it to your computer and open it, you can enlarge it and this will make it easier to read.) Although the phones Model# might differ from yours, the setup seems to be the same for every model I looked at.


To change from English to Spanish, it recommends holding the "skip" button for 2 seconds.

The manual contains other useful information, as well. I do hope this has been useful for you and I hope it resolves your phone issues.

Wishing you success,
Sheila

Thanks for that advice!!!! I just had the same problem. You would think that there should be a manual somewhere in the Internet, huh?

I had the same problem with the phone saying "unavailable" Take the handset and put it into the base unit (not the chraging unit only, the base that has the keys on it) for at least 20 seconds. The user guide says it will "register" during that time.

My ge cordless phone 2nd handset model #27996ge3-a displays "unavailable" when talk is pushed.

The answering machine is in a different language, simply press and hold the "Skip" key for about 3-5 seconds, and it will automatically tell you which language has been selected. It works like a toggle switch so you can go back and forth. I figured this out when I had the same problem, so I just started pushing buttons, and viola! I also checked other GE manuals, but they only tell how to change the language setting on the hand-sets not on the answering machine, less than helpful in my opinion.
