Answering Machine doesn't pick up

I have a land line with an answering machine and no one is ever able to leave a message.  I disabled voicemail years ago because there are people in the house who don't use computers and voicemail is too hard for them.  I had blocked a few numbers a couple of months ago and ever since then nobody can leave a message.  Why and how do I get the answering machine to pick up again.
