Home Answering Machine

I have a home answering machine ATT, it has been working fine for 2 years.  I say fine it will answer the phone and take a message.  Recently it will not do that.  I had Xfinity shut off their answering feature as I read that it may conflict with a home  answering system.  No joy it still will not answer.  So I thought maybe it was the answering machine.  I bought a new one ATT again this years model.   Again no joy, it still will not answer and take a message.   The phone sees  the call and does everything it is suppose to but when the answering machine kicks in I get a call failed on my cell phone.  Yes I set the number of rings on the Xfinity to a higher number than the ATT machine.
