I do not deal with your system but I see similar problems in other phone systems. This MAY be what is happening...


The message light can be a voice mail indicator OR someone on another phone in the building can leave you an intercom message (no voice system used or required). In those cases you need to return the message by pressing the MSG button, this should make the phone ring that left you the message in the first place. That phone needs to be answered to return the message and cause your light to stop flashing.

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.

How do I make the green flashing light on the phone go away?

Blinking Light
Two reasons the light on top of your screen might be blinking or on steady.
  • You do not have a voicemail key programmed and the voicemail is alerting you of a new message. Simply dial *8 and check your mailbox.
  • Message waiting has been activated. To cancel:
    • leave handset hung up
    • press call1 key
    • dial 873
    • press speaker key

Printer Trouble error message on NEC DTH-16D-1(BK)


Hello jlaverty,
Did you ever figure out how to fix this?

We just had a long power outage last night and our phone system wasn't accepting outside calls this morning. We reset it, which fixed the problem after 10 minutes or so of waiting.

The new mystery is why the admin phone is now flashing this "Printer Trouble" error message.

Nec dterm80 light flashing green

For the green light, you can turn it off from DSS. On the bottom left hand side of DSS, it is a message button. You can press the button and then your extension button. The green light will go away from the DSS and on your phone. I hope this helps.

Nec DTerm Series i - Feature Light Flashing URGENT

Thankfully I have found a solution that has worked.

A 'winking' (flashing) feature button indicates the station is in call forward - all calls mode.

To cancel this setting do the following

Lift the handset or press speaker
Dial the access code 4 + 2 (set as default)
Receive confirmation tone and restore handset or press speaker

I have found the manual at the following link to be the best resrouce ever - very easy to understand
