Q: What should I do if I my Message Waiting Indicator, stutter dial tone or light on my phone, is on but I have no new voice messages? A: Make sure to check all message types when reviewing your messages (i.e. voice, email and fax). Q: What should I do if my Message Waiting Indicator (MWI), stutter dial tone or light, is stuck on? A: Power cycle (turn off/on) the Phone or Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
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
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.
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.
go to the phone where the light is flashing press intercom #409. you may have to do that more than once. Keep doing it until the light goes out.
If the phone system is a DK 8 orDk16 press intercom 409 this will cancel the message waiting light that could have been cativated by a different extension.
Don't know about other models, but I just called RCA small business
phone support (800-511-3180) to find out how to clear the message light
indicator on my 25210 2-line cordless phone when it continues to blink
but there is no message.
All you have to do is hold down the delete button for a few seconds and
it will clear. Hope this helps someone else from going batty!
