Re: Message light continually lit

There are different reasons your message light may come on besides voice mail calls. The situation that started the message light needs to be completed before it will go out. I cannot be sure on your particular phone but quite often when I see this problem on other business phone systems it is because someone on another phone in the system tried to intercom and there was no answer setting off the message waiting indicator. (This may require other buttons to be pressed by the caller making it a rare occurrence) If so, you may have to press the message button to return the intercom call. The trick is the other phone needs to be answered as well or the system will not shut off the MSG light. Are there any unusual messages, icons, etc.. on the LCD? If this is not the case, you MAY be able to force the light off by leaving yourself another message and then retrieving the message.

Message light always stays on

You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when people call while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

Red Message List stays lit solid even when there are no messages.

No, it stays lit because there *are* messages, just not voice mail messages. Press the MESSAGE button and look at the display. Look at what's above soft key #3. If you don't need the information in the first line, use the CLEAR key to erase it.

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.

Resetting the New Message LED
If the LED remains on after you’ve retrieved your messages, you may need to reset
the indicators. With the phone is in standby mode, press and hold find handset on
the base until the paging sound stops (about 5 seconds).
