Messages Doesn't this phone also have a message machine within it? It looked like it did when we bought it, but I don't see any indication of it in the manual. If so, how do I program my message and retrieve messages sent to me?

Re: messages

No it does not come with an answering machine...the message light is for those that subscribe to messaging services through the phone company.

A few of our rooms has the voicemail light blinking. There is not a voicemail waiting and can not be cleared from the front desk or from the room.

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

  1. Save or delete all new messages
  2. Hang up.
  3. If the message indicator does not go out or stop within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact Verizon.
  4. If the message indicator does go out or stop, call your own number and leave a message
  5. Hang up and wait
  6. 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.

I just bought the Panasonic KX-TG9341T. This model has 4 remote extensions. My problem is the light on top of each phone keeps blinking. I checked to be sure I don't have any messages or anything else,...

The message indicator lights up when you have a new voicemail message, answering machine message, when you are receiving a call, or when the handset is placed on the charger. You can change the setting for the voicemail indicator and message indicator by pressing [MENU], [#][3][4][0], and press [▲] or [▼] to switch between off and on, then select [Save]. It is not possible to turn off the LED for an incoming call, or while it is on the charger.

Good luck...

I cannot access my messages. They are not going to my answering machine base. The red light indicating I have messages blinks but my machine says "0". Where are they? I want them to come to my mac

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

We had a phone where the message light wasnt coming on. I found the fix but now the light is on when a message is left but where I did the fix when you pick up that phone (with prob) receiver then hit the...

Here's the free, don't look in the manual, free answer. You didn't fix anything, you set a message waiting from another phone. Either answer the other phone when you press the MESSAGE button, or dial 700 plus your extension to clear all MW lights. When you first press message, without picking up the handset, look at the display. It will tell you who, or what, left the message.

I don't know why you're using 167 as it's the 3rd set of VM ports, but the VM system needs to send out the MW indications. You can tell the system in 990 to let the VM or the phone system to cancel the MW light.

How to record a message on a GE digital message machine

You didn't specify the model, so I can't be absolutely certain. On most GE machines, press and hold the GREETING button, record the message at the beep, then release the button when done.

If this doesn't work, please reply to this message and specify the model of your phone/answering machine.

Why are the Uniden DECT 6.0 phones blinking yellow lights? There are no messages.

It is a message indicator light, and very aggravating when you've listened to the messages. Two solutions-- First, yes, absolutely once you've listened to your new messages, push the Page Button on the base unit for five seconds until it stops beeping. That should stop the light.
And for me it worked the first time. Not the second time. Then, I found out that the phone's answering machine, which I don't use, had been turned on, received a message (yes, from an automated telemarketer of course!) and then been turned off. So when I turned it back on, I saw "1" on the display. Press delete all messages and the light goes off.
So check the actual physical answering machine too if your phone has one.

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!

How to retrieve messages from the answering machine ..remotely

Remotely Operating Your Answering Machine

Call your telephone number and wait for the answering machine to answer. If the answering machine is off, it will answer after about 10 rings and series of beeping sounds.
During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering machine is off), press [0] and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a Security Code or Personal Identification Number (PIN)" on page 54).
The answering machine announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero." You will hear a beep.
Enter a remote command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2 seconds.

I can not get my phone to pick up on the answering system when a caller is trying to leave a message

Try looking underneath the console of the answering machine. You must turn the answerer on on most machines and underneath there may be a switch to determine how many rings before it picks up as well.
