Slide the Nortel Grey Bar above the Hold & Rls buttons to reveal the setup button.

  1. Hit that button to show *Options List / # Setup list
  2. Press * to go into options.
  3. Use the arrow buttons or hit 3 to go into CLEAR MESSAGE WAITING
  4. Then hit 3 again to clear the message waiting
This should resolve the blinking light.

On Vista 200, slide the Grey Bar (slides to the right)
Press the exposed Options/Setup button
Use down arrow button to go to Turn Light Off option
Press 4 to turn it off - Display should indicate "confirmed"
Slide grey bar back into place...the light should be off
Test it by picking up an extension phone to make sure the light comes on as per normal

Why can't I turn 'new messages' light off?


The flashing light is probably the Voice Mail
Waiting Indicator. This is triggered by the
voicemail system operated by the Telephone
Service Provider which is a totally separate item
from your phone's Answering Machine System.

Talk to your Telephone Service Provider to
learn how to manage their voicemail. For
some, you are given a telephone number to
dial, a password or number to enter, and a
sequence to follow to play/save/skip/delete
the recordings stored there for you.

If you respond to this note with your specific
make & model number of cordless phone,
we might be able to tell how to reset VMWI
at the handset, but it is still necessary to
manage the voicemail system itself.

Good luck!

I have 2 problems. 1. The orange message light will not stop flashing no matter what I do. 2. Some how the system was switched from touch tone to dial tone. I can't seem to that switched either.


Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company's
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the "No messages waiting" state.
1. Press and hold FiND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
2. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.
Changing the dial mode
Your phone can communicate with the telephone network in two different ways: tone dialing or pulse dialing. These days, most base networks use a method called tone dialing, so your phone comes programmed for tone dialing. If your phone company uses pulse dialing, you will need to change your phone's dial mode. If you don't get a dial tone or can't connect to the telephone network, please follow the steps below to modify your phone's settings:
1. Press MENU/SELECT.
2. Select the Global Setup menu, and then the Dial Mode submenu.
3. Scroll to highlight Pulse.
4. Press MENU/SELECT. You will hear a confirmation tone.
If you ever need to change the dial mode back to tone dialing, follow the same procedure, but select Tone in step 3.

Finally for future ease of use, here is a link to the user manual were I copied the above information from:

The base unit has a flashing light. Why and how


Usually the flashing light is a New Message waiting indicator, meaning you either have a message on the built in answering machine, or you have Voice mail service provided by your telephone service provider. If you have checked both of these and there is no message either place, you need to do the VMWI reset procedure in your manual, if you don't have the manual you can look it up at Uniden.com

I have a uniden dect1580 6.0 and the red light in the left hand corner blinks all the time.


That is the message waiting indicator, it is telling you that your Call Notes (Or whatever your service provider calls it's voicemail) has a message waiting. If you do not have a message waiting, you can turn the light of by following these steps:

Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company’s
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the “No messages waiting” state.
Press and hold FIND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

Have no message but red light keeps flashing


The term we used for this back when I worked for the phone company was a "stuck message waiting indicator" and the way to fix it was:

Call yourself and leave a message.
Hang up and wait 2 minutes (we used to say 5 minutes, but 2 is plenty)
Retreive/delete your voice mail message
Hang up and wait 2 minutes


That should clear the blinking light.

How do I turn off message waiting indicator light


The VMWI led will stay lit if you have voice mail service from your telephone service provider. A lot of providers will also give a broken or stutter dial tone when you first go off hook as an indication of messages waiting. If you hear a stutter dial tone when you first go off hook, you will need to contact your telephone service provider. If not, you can try a simple reset on the base unit, just unplug it from teh AC adapter for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in.
