GE Digital Telephone Answering System Model Number 2-9831B

I have had this Telephone Answering System for many years. Over 20 Years Old. The other day I noticed that the message indicator was not showing anything. This shows the number of messages. The phone works fine but the answering machine is dead. I tested the power adapter with a volt meter and it works. Any ideas on why this Phone Answering System answering machine does not work?

Try turning the answering feature off and on again? Someone may have pressed the "off" button? Try unplugging it for a while and then turning the answering feature on after you plug it back in. Make sure you have an out-going message recorded. Make sure it's not on "announce only" mode, etc.

The Answering feature does not turn on. I tried unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back on. Still can't get answering feature to turn on.
