Voice mail message waiting light does not light

Qwest disconnected our voice mail service and now reinstated causing me to set up the mail box again. After getting setup again the voice mail message waiting light does not light on the uniden base or red light blink on the handset. The beeping dial tone does work when talk button is pressed.
Thanks
Linda

    I have a astra 9216e wall telephone. The message red light is not operating and now I cannot tell if I have a message waiting. I can not figure out how to make the light work again, so that I would know when I have a message waiting. the model of the telephone is astra 9216e. i don't know who the manufacture is.

Press down the "find handset" button until the paging beep stops (about 5 seconds) and this will reset the indicator lights on the handsets.

Message light flashing with all messages deleted


This is probably the Voice Mail Warning Indicator
(VWMI) which alerts you to messages waiting in
your telephone services' Voice Mailbox --- this is totally
separate from the cordless phone's answering machine
and is prone to 'key on' even when you do not subscribe
the telephone services' voice mail.

You can download a copy of your phones manual from
http://www.manualslib.com/download/303942/Panasonic-Kx-Tg9331t.html
( be sure to ignore the advertising large button
"start download" and use the smaller button "download"
across the top banner "downloads" "table of contents" etc. )
then enter the security-codes & select 'download pdf'' etc.
Try the section on page 39-40 about Voice Mail Service.

To summarize, Turning VM signal detection on/off:
The default setting is "On", To turn this signal "off":

1. press [MENU] # 3 3 2
2. scroll up/down to desired choice
3. press [save] [off]
=======================
Good luck!

I forgot how to clear the stored voice mails


Les,

If you want to delete the actual voice mails, you have to go through your phone company (using their keypad commands) since voice mail is only accessible through your phone (but the voice mail messages are stored through your phone company provider).

Info from the Uniden DECT 6.0 6035 Manual:

Using the Voice Mail Service If you subscribe to a voice mail service, you can use your phone to access your voice mailbox. The new message LED on the handset ?ashes and VM appears in the handset display whenever you have messages waiting in yourvoice mailbox. When you subscribe to the service, your voice mail provider provides you with the access number and the required voice mail signaling tone. You can use your phonebook to store the access number.

Resetting the Voice Message Waiting Indicator

When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset ?ashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message alert tone gets out of sync with your phone company's voice messaging system, you can reset back to its original "no messages waiting" state. To reset, press and hold [?nd hs] on the base for ?ve seconds. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

Here is the manual:

Phone shows a voice mail but no message on phone


The phone's voice mail indicator works with the voice mail function from your phone service provider. When your line is busy or goes unanswered (depending on how it's set up), the message is recorded by your service provider at their end, and you need to retrieve it. Most systems give a "stutter dialtone" when you pick up the phone to make a call (a few short bursts of dialtone before it becomes steady) to tell you when there's a waiting message. The message waiting light on the phone lets you know in case you don't pick the phone often.

Once you pick up your voice mail the light will go out and the dialtone will go back to normal. Check with your service provider for how to do it.

All messages have been deleted but message button keeps binking?????//


Most of the time your home phone service has a digital voice mail like your cell phone does. If the answering machine is set for an amount of rings that is too long the digital voice mail service will answer before your machine. The new cordless phone indicators do show messages on your digital voice mail as well as the answering machine. Depending on your home service, most of the time when you press talk and you hear a different non standard dial tone(mine pulses 3 times before going to solid dial tone) you have a digital message. You need to delete this message before the indicator light will stop flashing. Then set up you digital voice mail for a longer pickup time! This should get rid of this problem.

Cannot clear message on handset that says I have a voice message.


I resolved the problem but I'm not 100% sure of how I did it. If it happens again I'll try it again. I left the answering machine OFF so the Voice Mail would take any messages. A friend phoned and left a message in the VOICE MAIL, I knew this because of the broken dial tone when I went to make a call. When I erased his message the 'New Voice Message' displayed on the handset disappeared. I figure a previous caller hung up just after the voice mail picked up. It was not long enough so it did not register in the voice mail but somehow registered on the GE phone. Since there wasn't anything registered in the VOICE MAIL to erase the message was 'stuck' on the handset display. As soon as there was a message registered in the VOICE MAIL that could be erased it also cleared the message on the handset.

As i mentioned, if it happens again I'll try it to see if it works, until then I am not going to tempt fate.

CD445 voice message icon won't stop flashing


This feature is country dependent and may not
appear in some countries.
If you have subscribed to the voicemail service
from your local service provider, icon turns
on when you have a new message in your
mailbox. After you have accessed to all the new
messages, icon will turn off automatically. If
you find that the message waiting indication
cannot be turned off by the network, you can
still turn off the message waiting indication with
your phone by the following step :

In idle mode, if voice mail waiting icon is on,
long press the redial key to turn off the voice mail waiting
icon.
Once you choose to delete the message waiting
indication, all the other handsets registered to
the same base station will turn off the message
waiting indication accordingly.

I have a phone from Vtech


Having researched this phone, the message feature you have is voicemail. The machine itself does not have an answering machine in or on it. First make sure that you have voicemail through vonage. And check with them that the voicemail notification that they provide is compatable with the Vtech phone. Next try these steps Tip 1 of 7 Your phone is designed to work with most local and regional telephone service providers? voice mail systems. Voice mail (also known as voice messaging) is a subscription service, available from most service providers for a fee. This feature does not work in conjunction with your home answering device. Contact your local telephone company for more information about their voice messaging system. Tip 2 of 7 Your voicemail feature is compatible with both stutter and FSK signals from your local phone service provider. Contact your service provider to ensure you are receiving one or both of these signals. Tip 3 of 7 Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the VOICEMAIL light on the base is flashing in the presence of unheard messages, however your handset does not display MESSAGE WAITING, it is likely your handet is out of range from the base. Tip 4 of 7 Other electronic products (i.e., 802.11 wireless networking products, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless phones) can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices. Tip 5 of 7 The VOICEMAIL light on the base will flash and MESSAGE WAITING will be displayed on the handset only if there new, unheard messages. Once all new messages are heard and the phone is returned to the idle (OFF) mode, these indicators will be turned off. Tip 6 of 7 If the handset is not responding normally, you may need to reset your telephone system. Complete the following steps to reset the telephone system: Step 1: Disconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 2: Disconnect the handset battery. Step 3: Wait a few minutes and then reconnect the power to the telephone base. Step 4: Reconnect the handset battery Step 5: Wait about one minute for the handset to re-establish a link with the telephone base and then test the phone again. Tip 7 of 7 If the other phones in your home are having the issue, the problem could be related to the telephone wiring in your home, or with your local telephone service. Please call your service provider for further assistance. If this does not help, repost with further info. Please rate this solution throigh fix-it. Thank you
