It sounds like the one handset has not released the line. What you want to do is take the battery out of the headset and unplug the base station for about 30 seconds. Then plug the base back in. That shoudl force the line to reset. Next plug the battery back into the headset. Try it and see if it functions normally or it locks the line again. I'm hoping this is just a one time glitch and not a failure. If the line works normally then hopefully this is a one time event. If it locks the line again then the handset needs to be replaced. It's also possible this is a indication of things to come. If it works after resetting the two, it might ocur again. If you can clear it and it keeps repeating, it may do so more and more until it no longer resets the line. There is a slight possability this is a base station error but thats pretty uncommon. Unfortunetly there is little you can do to repair the handset and it would definitly not be worth doing so. Basically your only option is replacment.

How do I stop the red message light from blinking after I have received my messages


~*~*~ SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED! ~*~*~ After talking to both ATT and RCA with no success...I figured it out. ~*~*~ Plug your phone line into the "DATA PORT" on the back of the unit. Slide the "DATA PORT" switch to whichever line is showing it has a message. Press the corresponding Line# button on the front of the phone. (you should hear the dial tone) Dial your voice mail number. Let it answer, (enter your passcode if needed), then hang up! - That's it! example: MSG Waiting:L2 - I plugged the phone line into the Data Port and moved the data port switch to "2". I pressed LINE 2 on the front of the phone, dialed my voice mail number, it answered, I put in my passcode. (It said that I did not have any new voice mails), then hung up! That's it! Message Indicator light off!!! Repeat for each line that shows a (false) message waiting. ~~~Don't forget to move your phone line back into it's correct port on the back of your phone.~~~

Feature 983 log in is 120000 (if 2 digit extension, 1020000 if 3 digit, 10020000 if 4 digit extensions)
Select Mbox, enter that locked extensions mail box number, You will see password RESET. Select RESET. Release out. This will reset that mail box password to 0000. Use feature 981 on that phone and enter the new default password of 0000. you will then be prompted to change the password.

I cannot retrive my voice mail messages from my sciphone i68+


If you have voice mail on a land line as opposed to your cellular phone, you shouldn't have an icon on your cellular phone to retrieve any but the voice mail on your cellular account. If there is a special phone number that you call to retrieve your land line voice mail, then dial it, and enter whatever codes are required to retrieve your land line voice mail.

Nortel Venture Display:Can't delete message ''feature ON Line 1''


Try reversing the polarity of the phone line - some Central Office equipment reverses the line voltage to indicate Message Waiting. Your jack may be miswired (for a lot of phone equipment, polarity doesn't mattter).
