I came home from work yesterday and our phones including the answering machine weren't working. The lights were flashing like I had a message, but instead the answering machine said E0. No matter what button I push on the answering machine, I can't get it to do anything. Same with the phones. I had called my Husband at home earlier that day and everything worked fine then. I can't find my box with the manual...

Most of the time your home phone service has a digital voice mail like your cell phone does. If the answering machine is set for an amount of rings that is too long the digital voice mail service will answer before your machine. The new cordless phone indicators do show messages on your digital voice mail as well as the answering machine. Depending on your home service, most of the time when you press talk and you hear a different non standard dial tone(mine pulses 3 times before going to solid dial tone) you have a digital message. You need to delete this message before the indicator light will stop flashing. Then set up you digital voice mail for a longer pickup time! This should get rid of this problem.
Lighted button you see may not be for ANSWER SYSTEM. Lights on Base units may indicate INCOMING MESSAGE already stored or all sorts of system ready lights. Please do these three steps: 1. From the handset, Go to menu and set ANSWER system to ON once more
2. In the menu, set the number of incoming rings before ANSWER system turns on, to just 2.
3. In the menu, record a new message using your own voice.
then, Dial your own phone number from a cell phone to test.
Watch/listen as the incoming message is played. repeat any of the above if the system doesn't work.
Post a new question and include the model number and manufacturer of your system.
I work for a manufacturer of these machines and I can help. S
your phone may be equipped with voicemail call your own phone number to see. mine is and that is why mine flashes. and the answering machine does not usually work with voice mail. i'm not sure why but i always have voicemails and no messages on my answeriong machine.
figure out how many times it takes for your phones answering machine to automatically turn on, then call your phone company and have them limit the number of times your phone rings. like say at 14 rings if it auto answers at 15 rings.
The red blinking light is an 'event' light, it does not necessarily mean a message is waiting for you, it will also start to flash if you have a missed call.
click 'up' on the round button to show the missed calls list and it will stop flashing, at least it does on mine!
