Re: GE 28128

Call your phone from another number and leave a message. Then, check your voice mail, delete the message, and hang the phone up. That should cause the blinking to stop. It worked for me!

Re: GE 28128

I called support - took forever to get through
Told to unplug phone line, batteries, and AC, then wait 15 minutes.
Then reintall in order of batteries, then AC, then phone.
But once the AC gets plugged in, the light starts blinking again.
The technology of bluetooth with my cell is great, but the interface sucks and the light that won't properly recognize things is incredibly annoying. This one is going BACK....

We have a Uniden N32 Model XDECT7055. How do I remove the red flashing light on top of all the phones.

If that is the Voice Mail Waiting indicator light at the top of the handset and on the base, you need to press Menu on the base. Use the up/down arrows to select VMWI Reset. Press Menu again to select this sub-menu. Use the arrows to highlight Yes and press Menu again. You may need to contact your telephone company to make sure that the voice mail service is still compatible with the Frequency-Shift Keying message notification. Some broadband (particularly DSL) systems can cause telephone interference. Check with the broadband provider if you need a DSL filter (or similar item) to keep the interference from corrupting the VMWI information.

The procedure is on page 17 (19 of the PDF) of the manual for the Uniden XDECT7055. This is available here: .

I hope this helps.

Cant turn off voice mail

It is crucial to understand that Voice Mail is a
service sometimes offered by the telephone
service provider (whom we used to call "the
phone company"). This Voice Mail is totally
different from the messages we can record &
manage with an Answering Machine System.

Turning off the Voice Mail is a function managed
by the service provider's methods & procedures
and is not specific to the phone instrument itself.

AT&T, GE, Uniden, VTech cordless phones all
include an indicator light or screen display
for alerting "Voice Mail Waiting". Usually the alert
indicator is cleared (turned off) when the user calls
the prescribed telephone number and retrieves
those stored Voice Mails, but not always.

To manually reset (turn off) the alert indicator one
usually scrolls through the phone MENUs to find
a selection labled something like "VMWI Reset?"
and choose "Yes".

Specifics vary by make and model... the model
number of your phone can be found on a small
sticker underneath the battery in the handset
(eg, CS6229).

Take this model number to
to download a free copy of the User's Manual
and learn the full details of what your phone
can (and maybe cannot) do for you.

Good luck!

The base unit has a flashing light. Why and how

Usually the flashing light is a New Message waiting indicator, meaning you either have a message on the built in answering machine, or you have Voice mail service provided by your telephone service provider. If you have checked both of these and there is no message either place, you need to do the VMWI reset procedure in your manual, if you don't have the manual you can look it up at

Uniden dect 6.0 caller id light wiil not go out

I am not aware of any Uniden phone that has a "Caller ID" light. If you are talking about the small red LED on the top of the handset, that is a voice mail indicator and can be triggered by either a voice mail being held by your telephone service provider (Called Call Notes by some of the "bell" companies) or an unheard message on the telephones internal answering machine. Most of the time this is due to a voice mail on your service provider. If you don't think you have Voice Mail from your telephone service provider, call them and make sure, now days they include it with a bunch of other features without you ever asking for it. If you do not have voice mail through your telephone provider and there are no new messages on your answering machine, follow the Reset VMWI indicator procedures in your owners manual availible at

How do I turn off message waiting indicator light

The VMWI led will stay lit if you have voice mail service from your telephone service provider. A lot of providers will also give a broken or stutter dial tone when you first go off hook as an indication of messages waiting. If you hear a stutter dial tone when you first go off hook, you will need to contact your telephone service provider. If not, you can try a simple reset on the base unit, just unplug it from teh AC adapter for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in.

VMWI Indicator on Handset don't flash when I have a voice message.

I don't think the handsets are supposed to indicate that, but the base unit has a panel where the number of calls answered is indicated.

How do you STOP The BLUE blinking light? the manual sucks!

Solution by tojo57 on Aug. 26,2007 was rated FixYa by Sydney00 & worked for me. Restore factory default settings & reprogram the handset (or in my case, both handsets). No more flashing blue lights.----Mrschick

Press the mute/program button, then press the caller ID-volume button to select handset setup. Next press caller ID-volume until you get to Default settings. Use the caller ID-volume button to select 1yes. This will return the phone to the factory settings and for took care of the blinking blue light, however you will loose any custom setting or numbers you entered.
