    Thank you ever so much, has been driving me insane and the booklet couldn't help!!

  • Anonymous Jul 29, 2008

    Thank you, it has been driving me and my husband potty what the flashing cl was we have both read the manual thoroughly too but never thought it might mean clock!  Does make sense now though as problem happened shortly after a powercut but as the handset was fine we never thought the base might need reprogramming!

    Doh! CL = Clock! My base has been flashing this for weeks now! Would be useful to have mentioned it in the instructions. Good call though!

I have just posted this to answer someone else but will do it for you in case it comes up elsewhere.You need to key in the time and date again on the handset, because even though it already says the time and date on the handset its because the battery has saved the data but the base needs it re installing to date and time the messages. I unplugged mine to move it and thats when it started flashing it took me ages to work out that CL was the clock. Hope this helps I'm sure it will.

Oh thank you. This was driving me mad. I had to unplug the phone at one point as it is on my desk. It's appalling that this happens and doesn't tell you how to fix it. I hope someone at Wharfedale reads this thread at some point and realised that it's driving their customers to distraction.

Posted on Oct 26, 2008

Lo thanks for that, it's be driving me nuts as well...nothing in the user manual to say about it ;-)

    So does some one have the booklet or manual? Ever since I moved house it (wharfedale IN120-2) hasn't worked, it just say's 'searching' (for the base) all the time. If any one can help I would love you forever.

Wharfedale DECT TAM telephone/answer machine is flashing CL on the main answer machine base unit. This message is not indicated in the user manual can you please advise? Many Thanks Steven Clifford

This is due to the base unit losing power and needs the clock resetting.
The handsets retain their clocks under battery power so this is a little misleading.

To reset the base unit clock:
- press the OK key
- press the 'down' arrow twice until "DATE/TIME" is displayed.
- press the OK key again, this will display the year. Enter the correct year on the handset numeric keypad and then press OK. (Only the last two digits of the year need to be entered).
- The date is then displayed in MM/YY format, enter the correct date on the handset numeric keypad and then press OK.
- The time is then displayed, enter rhe correct time on the handset numeric keypad and press OK.
- The handset then beeps and displays "SAVED".
- Press the "C" button and replace the handset on the base unit.

The base unit should now stop flashing "CL".

Flashing answer machine display

Flashing CL means that your clock is not set.
