Light stays on eight

I had this happen recently due to a power outage. I found my manual and to reset you need to unplug the unit from the socket it self AND the back of the machine. I tried just unplugging it from the back of the machine and this did not work. When I did BOTH things, the machine reset. At least give it a try...

CL code

My phone was also flashing CL and the 0, after a power outage. After I set the date and time it was fixed. Press the flash button on the handset and use the caller ID buttons to set AM or PM; use the numbers to input the correct time. Then press #. Repeat for setting the day and press # again.
