How can I ret the phone or do whatever I need to to get the new message light to stop flashing. I have pulled the batteries, listened and deleted all messages, cleared and deleted the memory and CID, unplugged it and yet the "New Message" light keeps flashing. help?
Don't know about other models, but I just called RCA small business
phone support (800-511-3180) to find out how to clear the message light
indicator on my 25210 2-line cordless phone when it continues to blink
but there is no message.
All you have to do is hold down the delete button for a few seconds and
it will clear. Hope this helps someone else from going batty!

Re: New Message Light won't stop flashing
You have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system takes messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.
~*~*~ SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED! ~*~*~ After talking to both ATT and RCA with no success...I figured it out myself. ~*~*~ 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.~~~

The flashing message light may be telling you there is voice mail on your telephone line. If you have "home voice mail" or whatever your phone service provider calls their service, you're told of new message by a stutter dialtone. That is, when you pick up your phone to make a call, you hear two or three brief bursts of dialtone before it goes steady. Many new phone systems start flashing their message light when there are waiting messages so that you'll know about them if you don't pick up your phone. Follow whatever procedure your provider gives (usually you call a local access number) to pick up your messages, and that light should quit blinking.
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.
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.
Here are sample paragraphs from the user manual : hope it helps !
The new message LED on the handset flashes when you have new messages in your
answering system. The LED stops flashing when all new messages are played back.
3) To delete all messages, press delete messege in standby mode. Press delete
messege again after the announcement "To delete all messages, press delete
When you try to delete all messages without first listening to your new messages,
you hear several short beeps followed by an announcement "Please playback all
messages." This protects you from accidentally erasing messages you have not yet
When you press delete messege, you are permanently deleting the message. Once
deleted, the message cannot be replayed or retrieved.
call your phone service and have them disconnect the voice mail and if they cant just remove that have them set there rings at like 9 since most phones only have up to 5 rings for the machine to answer.you will have to use there voice mail service to hear your message and then delete it but should be good after that. i have comcast and they said it would take 3 days to deactivate voice mail but told me how to get there so i can get rid of that flashing light, hope this helps you
