29490ge2 I have the two line phone but when someone uses a phone in another room the line indicator does not come on. I don't know when the line is in use. When I use the 29490 I do get a green light. Is there something I missed? Thank you

SOURCE: Line 1 disconnects people on hold

Try these first and let me know
Intercom does not function correctly
• Make sure line 1 is connected properly and common to all phones on the system.
• Make sure all phone ID’s (station numbers) involved have been assigned.
Transfer does not function correctly
• Make sure receiver phones (stations) have same line connected.
Intercom indicator turns red and green alternately
• The station address needs to be re-assigned due to a duplicate station address in the system. See “Changing the Phone ID (Station Address)”.
Good luck,

Message Indicator Light Continues to Flash

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!

Line 2 continually flashes on GE 29490GE2 Corded Phone

Does it flash when you try to fax? (Or) Does it flash and when you try to fax it shows busy? Your phone most likely has a line in use detection circuit so when a line is being used by another phone (or device) you will know to choose the other line. These detection circuits can sometimes be fooled, confused or even cause problems with other telepones.
