Good morning, I have a panasonic telephone system modelKxTG8061E, with two extensions, however this morning the ansaphone symbol and another green battery shaped symbol are on the top right hand side of the handset, and I have no external line out, and when calling my number, it is going straight onto the messageing service, can you help me please?

Good morning, my name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query today.

Thanks James, can you tell me what I have to do to remove the symbols and get my line back into operation - it seems the fault may lie with the ansaphone??

Is it better that I telephone you?

I dont seem to be getting a reply from you? are you still connected to me?

Please give me a few minutes while I look up your model number.

I am getting all your messages, just not very good at multi tasking :-)

Is the fault (answer phone and battery symbol) shown on all the phones (the extensions too)?

James they are

To confirm when you call your landline, your getting through to the Panasonic answer phone and can hear yourself on the loud speaker when the answerphone takes the call?

I am getting through to the anserphone, but I am just going tocall again to see if I can hear myself - can you wait a second? No, Ive tried to leave a message, but I can hear it being recorded.

Ok so its not call screening causing the problem, it must be set to do no disturb.

Give me a few minutes and I will let you know how to switch it off.

Sorry James, I meant to say I cant hear it being recorded, and it is not showing on the console that it has recorded the message - sorry for the confusion!

Are you sure its the Panasonic answer phone and not you phone companies 1571 (or equivalent) service?

I really cant check that, because I dont have a dial tone which would enable me to dial 1571 - I know there is a message on my line, I heard the fone last night when the phone was working, but I listen to it?

Sorry my typing is getting worse! meant to say that the tone was on my fone last night, but I didnt dial 1571 to listen to it, I was going to do that this morning, but ofcourse, no line

I would have accepted the offer to talk to you to see if I could get this resolved, but Im afraid the acceptance wouldnt do through?

No problem there should be an option (link) just above the chat window to "enter contact info".

Good morning Caroline further to our phone call, I can confirm that after we have disconnected all devices (phone and broadband router) from the line, the fact the line is engaged suggests there is a telephone line fault not a issue with the Panasonic phones themselves.

Please give BT a call on 0800 800 150.
