    Same thing. Just set it up and message light blinks constantly on all 5 handsets with no messages on machine. Anyone know how to fix this? I can't even access the uniden homepage.

The message indicator is the phone alerting you that you have missed calls. Press the CID button (the up arrow) then menu. You are now in the call list. Scroll through it (using up & down arrows) making sure to view all calls with the word NEW next to them. Alternatively, you can press menu while in the call list and then choose delete all this will erase the entire list.

The light also blinks to indicate voice mail. Many phone providers offer this service for free and you should contact them to ask if you have it / how to check it.

Can I use Philips CD240 CD245 handset on a philips dc445 base

Simple answer yes they are compatable I just did it as I could not find any CD445 handsets.The manuals are downloadable from Phillips just search for CD445 or CD245 manual.Just press speaker button on 445 base for 5 seconds untill it beeps twice,then on new 245 handset menu/ register enter default code 0000 and bingo its live. Oddly the newer handset bases are 9v and not compatable with 445 bases which are 6v and have different contacts so you cant sit your 245 in the old base.My new 245 came with a new base anyway so no problem.

Digital phone/answering machine

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!

What's the button on the base to register a handset?

hello Stephwen

On a CD440 base you should see at least a single button wich serves to call the cell phone, for the case when we don't remember where left the device, that's the button that you have to press during 3 seconds. On a CD445 base, you can see more buttons has the images showed on Philips pages... the button as a nice sign on it: it as a point with some curve barsto the rigth side as meaning "echo" or "sound"...
