Red blinking light stays on even though no messages

We're having the same problem. Sometimes the red light blinks for 24 hours after all messages have been erased. I've tried scrolling back through caller ID to the beginning, and listening to all saved messages, but the light continues to blink. I can't find any answers on the Uniden site.

    How do you stop the flashing light after you have received your messages?

I found that if I hold the "find hs" button on the BASE unit (right above the red charging light) for a few seconds, it works!! Thank goodness there is a solution! Thanks for the help.

Yup, using the "Find hand set" worked. I pressed and held the find hand set button until beeping stopped then released. No more blinking red light.

Nothing works. Put a small piece of black electrical tape over the flashing light.

I unplugged the phone and unhooked it from the phone jack after find button didn't work and mine is still blinking. Just switched from AT&T to Comcast Xfinity Voice and am going to call them. It has only happened a couple of times with AT&T and the unplugging worked then, not working now.

    A year later and Comcast finally changed my modem due to this and other issues. They kept telling me it was my phones. All five I asked them. Wahla!! No more blinking message indicator. It was their modem, not my phones. I win this one!

    Found out my message light issue was with X-finity, when they did a reset from their end a few times. It would clear, then the next time I received a message same blinking light again. Began to hate getting a Voicemail and thought about just using the built in answering system. Began to suspect it was a Comcast issue, though they didn't want to admit it was on their end. They finally switched out my modem, at my insistence and it's not an issue any longer, two years down the road no issues.

I have just had this problem and tried holding down the 'Find Headset' button too for five seconds and nothing happened. After much frustration I tried again but held the button down for about 10 seconds and it did seem to work...

Posted on May 20, 2008

Thanks for the suggestions; apparently we have a different phone because I can't locate a "find headset" button. But I tried pressing "talk", then pressing "end" and holding down the "end" button for about 10 seconds. It worked!

Why is red light still blinking


It is still blinking because you still have some messages, if no, try to log again inside your mail box and do something, like change password or reset it, if you still have the same problem after 24 hours, call your suppliers, they can reset it from the central office, but take care, you may loose your saved messages .

Uniden message light blinking even though all messages have been deleted


Hi billkratzenb,

Try turning the device off for 5 mins, and turn it back on.

if the light still blinks even though there are no messages, go through the device settings and restore everything to Factory Default.

I hope this has helped, Good Luck!
