    The message light on the handsets work when I use the find handset feature on the base.  I am concerned with the fact that I do not receive the flashing light when I have a voicemail message from RCN.  The only alert that I receive is the broken dial tone for 4-5 seconds indicating a new messages.  I did have RCN reset my voice mail and I still do not the message light when I have a new message

Does the light work at all? So the device is working just fine but the light is not working.

So its either a broken lamp / led. Or then a setting is wrong somewhere.

    A wire may also be cut inside.

    Heres the owners manual

    Theres not much about the led, other than that it blinks when you have a new message.

    Can you take or send the voicemail to someone to be inspected?

A red light is flashing in the corner of the handset. How do i shut it off?

If your charge light is flashing and you have no messages on your answering system, you may have voicemail. Voicemail is provided by your telephone company and they would be able to assist you with retrieving those messages.

Once you have listened to the new messages, the blinking light will stop. You may also be hearing a stutter tone before your dial tone when turning on your handset. This is also indicating you have a new voicemail message.

A few of our rooms has the voicemail light blinking. There is not a voicemail waiting and can not be cleared from the front desk or from the room.

Message Waiting Indicator Your phone's message waiting indicator is either a light or special tone that alerts you when you have voice mail.

Occasionally, the message waiting indicator may be out of sync with your mailbox. In that case, the indicator light or tone is ON but there are no messages waiting, or the indicator light or tone is OFF when there are new messages waiting.

To get the message indicator back in sync

  1. Save or delete all new messages
  2. Hang up.
  3. If the message indicator does not go out or stop within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact Verizon.
  4. If the message indicator does go out or stop, call your own number and leave a message
  5. Hang up and wait
  6. If the indicator light or tone does not come on within a few minutes, there may be a problem, and you should contact the vender.

How do I clear phone of a new voice mail message?

You apparently have unheard messages on the voicemail system provided by your telephone company. This system records messages when someone calls while you're already on the phone. Please contact your telephone company for instructions on accessing their voicemail system.

It's stutter dialtone and indicates you have voicemail. Once you clear your voicemail the stutter tone will go away. You may also have a visual indicator that you have voicemail like a light or icon on the display.

How do you retrieve a voicemail from the vtech cordless phone model #CS5111?

Your phone does not have an internal answering machine/voicemail function. It only allows you to retrieve voicemail messages if you subscribe to voicemail service through your telephone service provider. Access and other features vary by telephone company and location, so you need to contact your phone company for specifics. The voicemail light on your phone lets you know if you have new messages on your phone company system. To disable this light if you do not subscribe to this service:
- Press PROG
- Use the up/down arrow keys to select CLR VOICEMAIL
- Press SELECT. The screen displays CLEAR? and YES flashes.
- Press SELECT to confirm. You will hear a confirmation tone.

Voicemail alert tones

I think that there is just a generic message alert tone setting applies for both vm and text. If your voicemail alert tone and message alert tones are the same, this is probably the case. I have searched the menu on my phone and haven't found any setting to change vm tone specifically.

We have Toshiba Digital business phones, model # DKT2020-SD. When the message button is pressed on one of our extenions, it is directed to another extension rather than the the voicemail. The digital...

This is a very common problem with the Message waiting light, it can be used to turn on other msg waiting lights on other phones, or used to call back the voicemail after a message has been left in your mailbox. What you need to do is cancel the message waiting light, the code is Intercom + #409, then you will hear a studder dial tone, do that code from both phones (ext 11 and ext 24) and it should solve your problem. I would recommend after using the code, follow up with leaving a message in each phones mailbox to turn the light back on and see if then when you press it, it will take you to your mailbox.

I hope this helps, post back if not.
