    I have the same problem. The red light is on and I can't turn it off. Also it says Message on the LCD display, but there's nowhere to get the message or delete it. I do not have voice mail and I never have.

We had a phone where the message light wasnt coming on. I found the fix but now the light is on when a message is left but where I did the fix when you pick up that phone (with prob) receiver then hit the...


Here's the free, don't look in the manual, free answer. You didn't fix anything, you set a message waiting from another phone. Either answer the other phone when you press the MESSAGE button, or dial 700 plus your extension to clear all MW lights. When you first press message, without picking up the handset, look at the display. It will tell you who, or what, left the message.

I don't know why you're using 167 as it's the 3rd set of VM ports, but the VM system needs to send out the MW indications. You can tell the system in 990 to let the VM or the phone system to cancel the MW light.

The waiting light on the phone won't shut off. When the voicemail is dialed there is no tone and the messages can't be checked.


The waiting light is a MESSAGE light. Press MESSAGE and look at the display. It tells you where the message came from and the 3rd soft key will let you CLEAR the message.

How do I turn on my message waiting light?


Why would you want to? Technically, I can turn on someone else's MW light in 2 ways, by calling them and dialing a "4", or by dialing *701 plus their extension number. That also means the equipment that's turning the MW lights on your phone has to do the same thing.

Before you ask, pressing the MESSAGE button and looking at the display where a soft key lets you CLEAR the message works, and *700 plus your extension clears ALL messages.

Panasonic KX-T7633 Notification Light will not turn off


The red light is MESSAGE WAITING. It is not necessarily VM notification. Press the MESSAGE button and look at the display. One of the soft keys will let you CLEAR the message and it will tell you where it came from. It's set by anybody calling your phone, and randomly, it is set by dialing your extension plus "4". Oops. It's a Pana mystery :-)

Cannot retrieve voicemail


When you press the message button, look at the display. Is it really going to the VM extension or is it going to another phone? Othre people could have left you a message by calling you and pressing the MESSAGE buttone either on purpose, or by accident.

You can clear ALL message lights from your phone by dialing *700 plus your extension and #. Of course you can access VM by dialing the VM extension, usually 165 or 500 from the intercom.

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.
