Question about Motorola Mobility E51 MD7161-3 Quad Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Answering machine code

My answering machine is flashing "CL".  What does this mean?  I assumed it meant clear (because we had 22 messages) but it is still flasing.  We have seen "PF" before and concluded it meant power failure. 

Thank you for your help

CL code

I'm getting CL too, and don't know what that means, but I DO know how to get your remote phones to work. Before I lost the manual I had to do that. Simply set each one in the main charger for about 20 seconds and they will work.

I have an Wharfedale IN120 Touch Dectr Phone with Answer Machine, on the answer machine display screen CL is flashing, I don't know why or how to clear it.

I have just posted this to answer someone else but will do it for you in case it comes up elsewhere.You need to key in the time and date again on the handset, because even though it already says the time and date on the handset its because the battery has saved the data but the base needs it re installing to date and time the messages. I unplugged mine to move it and thats when it started flashing it took me ages to work out that CL was the clock. Hope this helps I'm sure it will.

Flashing CL light

Your time needs set on your answering machine. If you have buttons on the top of your base, press and hold the day / check button to set the day of the week. Press and hold the hour button to set the hour. Press and hold the min button to set the min. If you don't have buttons on base, press flash button on handset to enter answerer remote mode. Press the 8 key to enter time set menu. Set hour and min using number buttons and set am/pm using caller id buttons. Press # pause to confirm the setting.
