Blinking light on base

For the last week the light on the base has been blinking. I have voice messaging on my phone and the base would blink when I had a message, then stop when I picked up my message. But it wont stop. I unplug the unit from the power source for a minute. But that didnt help. Any suggestions? Thanks

Re: blinking light on base

Apparently you can reset the whole system by unplugging everything including the phone jack and taking the batteries out - for 15 minutes and then re set up including registering 2nd handset

Blinking light voice mail ms9 via phone co wont turn off

The blinking light usually means one of two things: 1) message box is full or 2) you have a new message. Deleting messages should solve this problem for you. After you delete the messages, if you still have a blinking light, unplug the power cord and take the batteries out of all the phones linked to the base unit. Then one at a time put the batteries back in after you plug the base unit in. This should clear and error. Some base units have a back-up battery, don't forget to remove it too!

Blinking light on base

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

My light keeps blinking and i have no messages

My Uniden phone started blinking with no obvious message to listen to & draining all my phones batteries. Evidently it started at 11:27 pm last night, I woke at 5 in the morning and saw the blinking. Turns out altho I do not have voice messaging enabled in my Vonage account (VOIP), Vonage had sent a robo call to me in it & activated the MWI on my phones. Nice!! After I went into the account and listened to it, the blinking stopped. I still don't have it enabled in the account. I expect you've solved your problem. I'm just posting this tip for the next poor bloke who has this problem as it may help.

Red message light is blinking on my Uniden phone and voice mail icon appears on screen when I have no messages. How do I get rid of the blinking light and the VM icon?

hold down the "find handset" button on the phone base until the beeping stops. This will reset the message indicator. I just had this problem and downloaded the manual from

Red blinking light won't go away, my precious...

Call yourself from one of the hand sets. As soon as the voice starts talking hit the pound key ( # ). When asked for your password, either enter your password, your last 4 difits of your phone number, or, the last four reversed. Then just follow the instructions.

The blinking red light usually means that there is a voice message that is NOT stored on the base station.

GE model 25922 cordless phone (2 unit set) "new Voice Mail" reads out on phone, base unit charger continues to blink as a result. No way to clear it. Model does not have voice mail what is...

That blinking indicates a message in a third party voicemail (voicemail provided to you from your phone company), contact them as they may be charging you for a service you do not use.

If you need the manual here it is

The below is pasted from your manual

Charge/in use indicator on the base flashes
• Provided your phone company offers voice messaging service and you subscribe
to it, the charge/in use indicator on the base flashes when the phone is not in use
to indicate there is a message waiting. It stops flashing after the message has
been reviewed.

Hope this helps
