Contact your phone company to make sure the stutter tone and/or feature for Voice mail notification is on. I too had the same problem many years ago with AT&T (Then SBC) to correct this.

All messages have been deleted but message button keeps binking?????//


Most of the time your home phone service has a digital voice mail like your cell phone does. If the answering machine is set for an amount of rings that is too long the digital voice mail service will answer before your machine. The new cordless phone indicators do show messages on your digital voice mail as well as the answering machine. Depending on your home service, most of the time when you press talk and you hear a different non standard dial tone(mine pulses 3 times before going to solid dial tone) you have a digital message. You need to delete this message before the indicator light will stop flashing. Then set up you digital voice mail for a longer pickup time! This should get rid of this problem.

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.

Have no message but red light keeps flashing


The term we used for this back when I worked for the phone company was a "stuck message waiting indicator" and the way to fix it was:

Call yourself and leave a message.
Hang up and wait 2 minutes (we used to say 5 minutes, but 2 is plenty)
Retreive/delete your voice mail message
Hang up and wait 2 minutes


That should clear the blinking light.

All phones are flashing red


This is a "Voice Message Waiting Indicator" and it means that you have a new voice mail from your telephone service provider, or a new message on your answering machine. A lot of people do not even realize they have voice mail from their service provider because all the phone companies bundle services now. If you do not have a message on either you can reset the indicator by following the instructions in the manual

CD445 voice message icon won't stop flashing


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.

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

Msg light


I need more information. Your phone can be connected to one of many different Toshiba phone systems and you can also have different voice mail systems. I'm assuming you are talking about voice mail messages.

Can you verify that this is happening only on your phone? If you swap phones with another station does the light start to work? It's rare, but the light itself may be the problem.

Does this same thing happen to anyone else? Is the voice mail not turning on any message waiting lights? or is it working for others?

Not knowing all the details, you could try emptying all messages including saved messages. Then try to leave yourself a test message.

If you know how, you could have your mailbox deleted and re-created. This would need administrative rights to voice mail programming.

Most voice mails have an option to activate the MSG light or not when a new message arrives. Your's could have been turned off by mistake or glitch.

I called support - took forever to get through
Told to unplug phone line, batteries, and AC, then wait 15 minutes.
Then reintall in order of batteries, then AC, then phone.
But once the AC gets plugged in, the light starts blinking again.
The technology of bluetooth with my cell is great, but the interface sucks and the light that won't properly recognize things is incredibly annoying. This one is going BACK....
