Question about Uniden 5.8GHz Dual Cordless Phone

1 Answer

My message light on base and 2 other cordless phones flashes constantly. There is not beeping just flashing lights. Have read manual but cannot figure out how to get rid of this flashing. When there is a message it flashes and beeps (which is normal) When message is retrieved the beeping stops but flashing continues. Very annoying.

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

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.

Light won't turn off phone flashing


I hope this will help. I had the same problem with the message alert light not turning off. I have phone service through the internet. I would clear messages from my base unit and alert would continue to flash. I went into my internet message center and found a few old messages there. Why they got there is beyond me, but after clearing them my alert light went out and stayed off. I disabled messages to internet inbox and now it flashes only when I get messages to my base unit until I listen or clear them. Easy fix to annoyance I've had for some time.

    In Use LED flashing constantly


    Your phone may have lost registration to the base. 1) Try disconnecting the power to the base and then re-connecting the power with the cordless phone in the base. Give it a few seconds, then see if it works. 2) Try removing the battery, wait 10 seconds, re-install the battery and set the phone in the charger.
