Re: Msg light

I need more information. Your phone can be connected to one of many different Toshiba phone systems and you can also have different voice mail systems. I'm assuming you are talking about voice mail messages.

Can you verify that this is happening only on your phone? If you swap phones with another station does the light start to work? It's rare, but the light itself may be the problem.

Does this same thing happen to anyone else? Is the voice mail not turning on any message waiting lights? or is it working for others?

Not knowing all the details, you could try emptying all messages including saved messages. Then try to leave yourself a test message.

If you know how, you could have your mailbox deleted and re-created. This would need administrative rights to voice mail programming.

Most voice mails have an option to activate the MSG light or not when a new message arrives. Your's could have been turned off by mistake or glitch.

A few of our rooms has the voicemail light blinking. There is not a voicemail waiting and can not be cleared from the front desk or from the room.

Message Waiting Indicator Your phone's message waiting indicator is either a light or special tone that alerts you when you have voice mail.

Occasionally, the message waiting indicator may be out of sync with your mailbox. In that case, the indicator light or tone is ON but there are no messages waiting, or the indicator light or tone is OFF when there are new messages waiting.

To get the message indicator back in sync

  1. Save or delete all new messages
  2. Hang up.
  3. If the message indicator does not go out or stop within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact Verizon.
  4. If the message indicator does go out or stop, call your own number and leave a message
  5. Hang up and wait
  6. If the indicator light or tone does not come on within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact the vender.

Message Light

The only thing you can do is unplug the unit from the wall and from the phone line. wait over night and see if this resets the unit. if it does not, I,m afraid there is a circuit problem in the phone and most likely will not be worth repairing, but try to hard reset like I said first. good luck

New CS6124 cordless. Charging now. Why does a red 0 flash constantly in base screen? How do you turn it off? Should it be always flashing?

The message counter will blink until the first time you
press "Play" ( yes, even when there is nothing ( 0 ) to
listen to ).

Actually, this blinking serves the real function of alerting
you to the fact that power was off/interrupted and now
the clock (Time and Day) will need to be reset.

Good luck!

Message waiting light will not go off

Found a user manual online. Solution is holding the "Find Handset" button in for five seconds, until the red light went off; that reset the message waitung light and message.

I have a uniden dect1580 6.0 and the red light in the left hand corner blinks all the time.

That is the message waiting indicator, it is telling you that your Call Notes (Or whatever your service provider calls it's voicemail) has a message waiting. If you do not have a message waiting, you can turn the light of by following these steps:

Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company’s
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the “No messages waiting” state.
Press and hold FIND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

Banked call?

Message waiting can come from several sources. Usually they are stacked at the phone and you can keep pressing message until they are all displayed. Have the person down the hall pick up the phone when you ring it, or look for the message cancel code and get that message off your set. If it clears, that was the only one and you have no voice mail messages.

Msg button flashing

go to the phone where the light is flashing press intercom #409. you may have to do that more than once. Keep doing it until the light goes out.
If the phone system is a DK 8 orDk16 press intercom 409 this will cancel the message waiting light that could have been cativated by a different extension.
