Question about Uniden TRU8885-2 Cordless Phone
Our 2 phones work as always BUT the red lights at the top left of the hand sets are blinking. What are they trying to tell us?
Here are sample paragraphs from the user manual : hope it helps !
The new message LED on the handset flashes when you have new messages in your
answering system. The LED stops flashing when all new messages are played back.
3) To delete all messages, press delete messege in standby mode. Press delete
messege again after the announcement "To delete all messages, press delete
When you try to delete all messages without first listening to your new messages,
you hear several short beeps followed by an announcement "Please playback all
messages." This protects you from accidentally erasing messages you have not yet
When you press delete messege, you are permanently deleting the message. Once
deleted, the message cannot be replayed or retrieved.

Tips for a great answer:
steps are for a headset that is already paired to you cell phone and is stored
in the phones trusted device / history list.
the lights on the Multi-Function Button of the headset (the top / largest
button of the three buttons); the light will be blinking Red if not
connected and blue if connected (paired and connected are two different things).
Push the volume up (middle button) 2 times, you should hear a beep each time
you press it. If you hear the beeps go to the next paragraph. If you hear no
beeps at all you will need to call 1-800-742-8588 for an RA # (Return
Authorization Number) for warranty and non warranty repairs.
Look at the lights on the Multi-Function Button on the headset
(the top / largest button of the three buttons); the light should be blinking Red if not
connected and Blue if connected (paired and connected are two different things).
Plug the headset into the power adaptor with power applied. Make sure your cell
phone is on and the Bluetooth power of the PHONE is turned on. After 5 seconds
unplug the headset from the charger and do not press any buttons. You should
get a slow Red blinking light at first. Allow the headset to connect
automatically to the cell phone, this may take up to 10 seconds. Once the
connection has occurred the Blue light on the Multi-Function
Button will blink once every second.
If after 10 seconds the light is still blinking Red once
every 5 seconds you will need to press either the Multi-Function Button of the
headset once to connect to the cell phone, or, your phone may be set up
requiring you press a designated button or sequence in the phone to connect to
the headset (meaning your cell phone is not set with or does not support
*NOTE* Most newer model cell phones have an automatic connect feature. Some phones have the categories of
"Headset", and "Hands Free" in their Bluetooth menu. Some companies use the term Auto-Connect
under the "Hands Free" category in their Bluetooth menu to indicate the set up
for use with the Bluetooth system in an AUTOMOBILE.
Automatic connection under the "Headset" category and Auto-connect under the "Hands Free" category are not the same thing. When dealing with the headset you want to work in the "Headset" menu and make sure the Auto-connect of the "Hands Free" menu is turned off.
If this doesn't correct the issue I'd recommend calling VXi at 800-742-8588 for additional clear and reset instructions and the possability of warranty repair options.
