RCA Visys 25204RE1 Message indicator light not working
The phone company provides a special dial tone when I pick the phone up to indicate I have a message. The message light worked when I first installed, but stopped working shortly there after. Any idea what needs to be done to get my message light back?
If it works sometimes, then it might be a problem with the phone or the phone line itself.
If it never works at all, then it's a problem with the services that the phone company has enabled/disabled on the line. If that's the case, call your phone company's repair line and explain the situation. They can check to confirm that the message waiting indicator service is provisioned on the line, or add it if it's not.

Message Waiting Indicator Your phone's message waiting indicator is either a light or special tone that alerts you when you have voice mail.
Occasionally, the message waiting indicator may be out of sync with your mailbox. In that case, the indicator light or tone is ON but there are no messages waiting, or the indicator light or tone is OFF when there are new messages waiting.
To get the message indicator back in sync
Save or delete all new messages
If the message indicator does not go out or stop within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact Verizon.
If the message indicator does go out or stop, call your own number and leave a message
Hang up and wait
If the indicator light or tone does not come on within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact the vender.
You apparently have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.
Call forwarding is a service provided by your telephone company, and the exact procedure varies from company to company. For example, on some systems you dial *72 then the number to forward to. Please contact your telephone company for the exact procedure.
Your phone service provider is sending a signal on your phone line that is activating the message waiting on your phone. Likewise the beep-beep-beep you hear is called stutter dail tone which is sent by your phone service provider to indicate that you have a message in voicemail for phones that do not have message waiting or message waiting light ability. To cancel the message indicators, you'll need to call your phone service provider customer support and have them disable voicemail. Nowadays, voicemail service is often automatically added by service providers, especailly if you have recently changed service providers or your service provider has upgraded their switch equipment.
Dial your own number, when the voicemail picks up, dial either the * key or the # key. Then follow the instructions for setup that they give you. There should be an option for notification settings within the voicemail system.
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!
