Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the "...answering machine..."
And to avoid asking you to do something you've already tried, can you please tell me what / any and all troubleshooting / specific steps you've already attempted other than / to address the above.

This is an independent site and members of this online community provide information, repair tips, technical assistance as a form of paid Q & A service.

Panasonic model KX-TGD560, it's a telephone with an answering machine connected. I've recorded my message but callers can't record a message.

Appreciate the additional information.

What happens when someone calls and is not answered? ...what do they hear?

Have you tried calling your own home number using your mobile?

I have called my land line phone

The system tried calling twice but for some reason won't connect.

Offhand, I suspect that there is nothing wrong with the home/landline phone
Bear with me and consider even if just for test purposes:

  • • call again your home number using your cellphone;
  • • do not answer the home/landline phone;
  • • remember exactly the message heard when the call is automatically answered;
  • • turn off, disconnect / remove the power and telephone connections of the home/landline phone base / main unit;
  • • call again your home number using your cellphone;
  • • expectedly the home/landline phone would not ring as it is currently disconnected;
  • • compare the message heard now and the earlier message when the first test call was made;
  • • if the same, then it would not be the disconnected home/landline phone;
  • • it would be the phone company's VoiceMail service intercepting your unanswered calls;
  • • call and bring this to the attention of the phone company;
  • • have them disable / turn off their VoiceMail feature to your home number which may have been inadvertently / accidentally turned on/enabled.

Thank you .I'm trying to call AT&T

Yes please as it would most likely be an issue with the VoiceMail.
