New Voice Mail flashing light

I have a GE Model 28111 Series DECT 6.0 Cordless Handset Speakerphone System. How can I stop flashing light indicating New Voice Mail, once I've retrieved said voice mail, and cancelled it. My two phones keep flashing, unless, I remove the battery. What else can I do? Thanks I have internet phone service. I have retreived my voice mail and now the blue light on my (ge model 28111) phone will not stop flashing, indicating "new voice mail". There is nothing in the users guide about voice mail. I'm almost ready to return phone to store! Please help. i cant stop the flashing light on my new ge 28811 dect 6.0phone it is the voice mail indicator

    I have the same phone and the same problem. There's nothing about voice mail in the manual that I can find. How do you retrieve your voice mail? I'd be happy to try the solution posted but can't even figure out how to get my voice mail....

Press "mute" key to access menu, press the up or down arrow key labeled "caller ID- volume" until you get to "handset setup", press the "mute" key again, press the down or up arrow until you have "defaultsetting" selected, press "mute" key, press "1", then press "mute" once more. At this point your handset will reset clearing the indicator for all the handsets. I've had to do this twice on my phones and it worked every time.

What worked for me was to call my phone from another phone and leave myself a voicemail. I then called into my voicemail, listened to and deleted the message. This reset my handsets so the New Voicemail indicator is no longer flashing.

Hope that helps!

    did you set the voicemail to be deleted from the phone service server? that would explain the flashing light..

  • ashley_shale Oct 28, 2010

    I am in the Army and I move a lot. I am always setting up new voicemail accounts and experience this problem every single time. Make sure you have no messages on the base, and none on the service like comcasts automated messaging. If those are clear call you provider and have them reset your voicemail and status indicating light. Works everytime!

SOURCE: registration

I'm not sure from your description exactly what your problem is, but I have the 28112, and it has a handset menu command for registration, and one for deregistration. If this sounds similar to yours, I'd suggest trying the registration command. If that fails, try deregistering, and then try to register again. I've also heard that these units somehow reset after 20 seconds in the recharge cradle, but I haven't seen that actually appear to work.

If you have problems getting the menu command to work, write back with more info and I'll see if I can figure it out based on what my phone does.

I forgot how to clear the stored voice mails


Les,

If you want to delete the actual voice mails, you have to go through your phone company (using their keypad commands) since voice mail is only accessible through your phone (but the voice mail messages are stored through your phone company provider).

Info from the Uniden DECT 6.0 6035 Manual:

Using the Voice Mail Service If you subscribe to a voice mail service, you can use your phone to access your voice mailbox. The new message LED on the handset ?ashes and VM appears in the handset display whenever you have messages waiting in yourvoice mailbox. When you subscribe to the service, your voice mail provider provides you with the access number and the required voice mail signaling tone. You can use your phonebook to store the access number.

Resetting the Voice Message Waiting Indicator

When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset ?ashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message alert tone gets out of sync with your phone company's voice messaging system, you can reset back to its original "no messages waiting" state. To reset, press and hold [?nd hs] on the base for ?ve seconds. A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

Here is the manual:

Your GE phone doesn't have an accessory handset. Unfortunately you cannot replace it with just one handset. If the phone is within warranty, kindly return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced.

Cannot clear message on handset that says I have a voice message.


I resolved the problem but I'm not 100% sure of how I did it. If it happens again I'll try it again. I left the answering machine OFF so the Voice Mail would take any messages. A friend phoned and left a message in the VOICE MAIL, I knew this because of the broken dial tone when I went to make a call. When I erased his message the 'New Voice Message' displayed on the handset disappeared. I figure a previous caller hung up just after the voice mail picked up. It was not long enough so it did not register in the voice mail but somehow registered on the GE phone. Since there wasn't anything registered in the VOICE MAIL to erase the message was 'stuck' on the handset display. As soon as there was a message registered in the VOICE MAIL that could be erased it also cleared the message on the handset.

As i mentioned, if it happens again I'll try it to see if it works, until then I am not going to tempt fate.

How do you unregister a defective handset so that it can replaced


1. Delete or listen to all voice mail messages, if necessary, to clear the IN USE/Voice Mail light indicator.
Note: Skip this step if it does not apply to your MD Series cordless telephone model.
2. Press OFF on the base station and each handset.
3. Press and hold down PAGE on the base station until the IN USE light flashes slowly, then release.
4. Press and hold down PAGE again until the IN USE light begins to flash quickly, then release PAGE.
5. Quickly and fully press and release PAGE again.
6. Please register handset displays. Press OK to begin the registration process, or press EXIT.

Mine says on all handsets "New Voice Mail" but I can't not find out how to listen to it or delete it so the handsets will stop flashing and the message light on the base will also stop flashing. The instructions say you get this from your service provider but does not tell you how to do it or how to delete it.
