Re: red light on main base

Do you have voicemail through your phone co? That blinking can indicate a new voicemail is waiting for you. It could also indicate intermitent charging. Try cleaning the contacts on the base and phone with rubbing alchol and a q-tip. Hope this helps.

My red light indicating I've retreived my messages will not stop blinking

This may be the cause of a couple other things, especially with an Android.
1. Charging phone makes red light blink
2. System problems may also cause your red light to blink

New CS6124 cordless. Charging now. Why does a red 0 flash constantly in base screen? How do you turn it off? Should it be always flashing?

The message counter will blink until the first time you
press "Play" ( yes, even when there is nothing ( 0 ) to
listen to ).

Actually, this blinking serves the real function of alerting
you to the fact that power was off/interrupted and now
the clock (Time and Day) will need to be reset.

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.

DECT 1480-4 Uniden Corless phone- how do you get rid of red LED lite ?

Do you mean the status light on the handset or the one on the base? The status light on the base will be on if the answering system is on. The handset status light will be on but steady when the handset is on the charger. (It's a battery charging indicator in that case; take the handset off the charger to stop the charging system. It provides a trickle charge to offset the battery discharging over time) The light blinks to indicate new messages are available on the answering system. Press the Play button on the base or the Messages/Mute button on the handset to play new messages.

Uniden offers the manuals for many of their phones on their support site: . The direct link to the manual for the DECT-1480 is .

I hope this helps.

The red light on the handset charger turns on to indicate that the handset battery is charging. The light will blink to show the handset is charging and remain on when the handset is charged.

Try swapping the AC adaptor from one of the handsets with the adaptor from the base unit. That fixed my problem.

I found that if I hold the "find hs" button on the BASE unit (right above the red charging light) for a few seconds, it works!! Thank goodness there is a solution! Thanks for the help.

Base unit light blinking GE 27831

I had the same problem. Once I read the owners manual I found the charge light blinks to indicate that you have voicemail waiting to be retrieved via telecom provider. Much to my surprise I have a voicemail account I never requested.

Another mystery solved - I now know why I missed so many messages.

Blinking lights

The blinking cordless handset seems to be your main issue. IT should not continue to blink after a start up. I think if you replace the handset and sync it to your base station, your problem will be resolved. The T7406 phones are not the most rugged handsets. IF this unit was dropped, a lo of your symptoms make sense.
