When both handsets have the antenna symbols blinking the base set is not working. So check that part. It has nothing to do with the phone line, because the connection between base station and handset should also work without the line connected. Check the power supply of the base station or its cable. When you are 100% sure the power supply is giving the correct voltage and enoug current I'm affraid the base station is defect.
Wi-Fi base station: Understanding and resolving a blinking amber status light
Your Wi-Fi base station status light blinks amber. Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).
A persistent, blinking, amber status light indicates that your Wi-Fi base station may require your attention. How to resolve a blinking amber status light alert
Launch AirPort Utility to determine why your Wi-Fi base station status light is blinking amber. Apple recommends that you use AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Mac, AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Windows, or a newer version of AirPort Utility if one is available.
AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if your Wi-Fi base station requires your attention. You may also choose to launch AirPort Utility at any time. Do not use any version of AirPort Utility earlier than 5.0. In Mac OS X, AirPort Utility is located in the Applications > Utilities folder. In Microsoft Windows, AirPort Utility can be located by clicking Start > All Programs > AirPort. Note: You may also locate and download the latest Wi-Fi base station firmware and software by clicking here.
In the AirPort Utility window, locate your Wi-Fi base station and double-click on it to open the Summary window. Note: If you have more than one Wi-Fi base station, double-click on the icon for the Wi-Fi base station that has the amber circle next to it.
When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle to the right of Wi-Fi base station Status to open the Status window.
The Status window lists any conditions that require your attention. Respond to each item until there are no more items listed.
Important: You must reset the Wi-Fi base station using the reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.
Eliminating the blinking, amber status light may require making changes to a specific setting, or putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside any option you don't wish to change. A checkmark simply tells the AirPort that you are aware of the issue and you have chosen to ignore it. For example, you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that anyone can join your wireless network.
Click Update to apply your changes (the Wi-Fi base station will restart).
After the Wi-Fi base station has restarted, the status light should be green and not blinking. If the status light stays amber in color and blinks after the Wi-Fi base station restarts, you may repeat the steps above.
Basically Time capsule is same as Airport extreme base station added with a hard drive to take wireless backup.Put same Network Name and password in both Time capsule and airport base station.Suppose your are making TC as a primary base station and Airport extreme as a secondary base station. Select WDS in both the base stations .In "Wireless Mode" select"Participate in WDS network" in both the base stations.Dont change rest of the options.Put TC Mac id to Extreme base station and extreme Mac ID to TC.now open the airport option in your laptop and check.you can see a single network name.Its DONE.Njoy using wireless
The message indicator lights up when you have a new voicemail message,
answering machine message, when you are receiving a call, or when the
handset is placed on the charger. You can change the setting for the
voicemail indicator and message indicator by pressing [MENU],
[#], and press [▲] or [▼] to switch between off and on, then
select [Save]. It is not possible to turn off the LED for an incoming
call, or while it is on the charger.
Do you have voicemail through your phone co? That blinking can indicate a new voicemail is waiting for you. It could also indicate intermitent charging. Try cleaning the contacts on the base and phone with rubbing alchol and a q-tip.
Hope this helps.
The blinking cordless handset seems to be your main issue. IT should not continue to blink after a start up. I think if you replace the handset and sync it to your base station, your problem will be resolved. The T7406 phones are not the most rugged handsets. IF this unit was dropped, a lo of your symptoms make sense.
