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?

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!
Yes, the was bothering me for some time. I think the indicator is a little green light that blinks in the extreme upper left hand portion of the phone...not on screen, above it....but the blinking light may indicate a missed call or a voice mail is present.
Try this. Go into your phone icon, press and hold '1' and listen to any open messages. Delete each. Next go into your Call Log and delete all call history. Now exit.There should be no green light flashing in the upper left hand corner of phone. You have just cleared everything.
Next call your phone but hang up before leaving a message. Note the blinking green light in the upper left hand corner apparently indicating you missed a call. Go into your Call Log. It will say one missed call. Exit the call log and note that the blinking light is now off. You have acknowleged the call in the call log so the light goes off when you exit.
Call the phone again. This time leave a message. Note the blinking light again. Go into your call log again. Note the missed call. It would be nice if there was an icon or something HERE that indicates if this call left a voice message....but there does not appear to be. Exit again. This time note that the light continues to blink even though you entered the call log and acknowleged the call. I believe it continues to blink because you have a voice message. Exit.
Go into the call log again. Delete the missed call from the call hsitory. Exit. The light still blinks, I believe still indicating a voice message.
Go to your phone icone. Press '1' to check messages, delete the message and exit. The blinking is now gone.
So it appears a blinking green light indicates a missed call. If it still blinks after exiting the call log, you have a voice message.
If someone figures something else out let me know because this stinks!
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 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.
Our just started to do the same thing. Drove us crazy because there were no messages. I couldn't find the manual so I looked up the manual on their website. Here's how to fix it....IT WORKS! With the phone in "stand by", open the menu and select Global Setup.Select VMWI reset. Then select yes.
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.
