This indicates that you have voice mail waiting on your line (telco provided) or you may have voice mail provide by the unit. What you need to do is to call your voice mail box or use your voicemail button and listen to your messages. If you have the owners manual it will tell you how to access the voice mail box if it is local to your unit. The manual can be found at:

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.

Message light on Vtech cordless light won't stop blinking

The flashing message light may be telling you there is voice mail on your telephone line. If you have "home voice mail" or whatever your phone service provider calls their service, you're told of new message by a stutter dialtone. That is, when you pick up your phone to make a call, you hear two or three brief bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. Many new phone systems start flashing their message light when there are waiting messages so that you'll know about them if you don't pick up your phone. Follow whatever procedure your provider gives (usually you call a local access number) to pick up your messages, and that light should quit blinking.

My cordless phone model #16725 w/answering machine (old model) has a blinking lite with a message saying "new voice mail" How do I retrieve this message?

If theres a play, play message, or voice mail button on the base/main charger, try that.
Or maybe your phone service has its own voice mail, in which case, try dialing your own phone number.

We have a Uniden DECT1588 Series system that we have just purchased. We are connected to a Voice Mail Service through Bell. We can receive the messages from the answering service but the light on the hand...

OK. You have a phone set with an answering machine, yet you continue to pay MaBell for Voice-Mail. Is there any compelling reason. That was my feeling when I first read your question but I thought you might not like what I had to say, so I consulted the Uniden FAQ and here what they have to say.

If you Uniden phone has a digital answering machine, and you also have voice mail through your phone company, the message indicator light will not light up when you have a message in your voice mail system. We recommend you discontinue your voice mail and use the Uniden internal digital answering system.

Voice mail message waiting light does not light

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