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
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.

Blue Parrott Road Warrior B250XT, will not stay connected to my phone, The phone is a Motorolai335, it will connect and disconnect just when ever some times every 3 to 5 minutes and will reconnect within...

These steps are for a headset that is already paired to you cell phone and is stored in the phones trusted device / history list.

Look at 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 automatic connect).

*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.

Cannot remove blinking red light on one of the extentions

Depends on what blinking light it is, but try feature and the button. If its the red led at the top of the phone, it is a voicemail. Could also be DND, try feature, 69, feature.

Left tv unplugged for a few months no tv won't turn on

The first thing to do is try to turn on the set with the remote and then when it doesn't respond go to the set and hold down the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time until the power LED starts blinking a two sequence code. Like 2 - 4 or 1 - 2. The code will keep blinking for five or six times and stop. The blinking is the microprocessor telling you why the set is not working. We techs call that a self diagnostic function. Which this set has. Just repost your findings.

Red triangle on left hand top corner - K800i

triangle means roaming if its a red triangle then your internet is turned off while roaming

go to options>mobile network> data services and select what setting you would like either on all the time, off, or off while roaming

solid triangle means extended network (coverage with another carrier that your service provider has an agreement with). some services might not work

blinking triangle is roaming (on a network with no agreement)...most carriers have simply disabled roaming entirely, you either get their network, or extended network to avoid additional charges. int'l roaming is different, not restricted. if you're near either of the borders, i'd say choose "home only" under network options to avoid int'l charges

Hope that helps

Night button and incoming calls

The programs involved with you ringing are 81 ( no light or Day Mode ), 84 ( blinking red light or Day 2 Mode ), and 87 ( solid red light or Night Mode ). To change the ringing assignments you need to know the port numbers of the phones you want to ring or not ring. You can do this by pressing DN/ICM dialing # 4 0 2 at each phone, the diaplay will show the physical and logical port numbers. These numbers will be used to turn on or off the aaociated lamps within the above programs. Do you have anyone on staff that understands the system programming ? Let me know ...Mike

Red blinking light won't go away, my precious...

Call yourself from one of the hand sets. As soon as the voice starts talking hit the pound key ( # ). When asked for your password, either enter your password, your last 4 difits of your phone number, or, the last four reversed. Then just follow the instructions.

The blinking red light usually means that there is a voice message that is NOT stored on the base station.

Blinking lights on KitchenAid blender

Alternating blinking lights on a Kitchenaid blender indicate a bad circuit board which is unable to run the motor properly. Unplug the blender, take the jar off, and turn the spindle by hand. Then plug it back in. If it does not work properly, try a different outlet (perhaps not in the kitchen). If nothing works, the blender needs to be repaired.
