My phone was also flashing CL and the 0, after a power outage. After I set the date and time it was fixed. Press the flash button on the handset and use the caller ID buttons to set AM or PM; use the numbers to input the correct time. Then press #. Repeat for setting the day and press # again.

Can I access the GE 29869GE2 Digital Messaging System remotely and change the outgoing message?

Do you know the access code?

If so, it appears from the manual that you can. I would upload the manual (if it's not on the FixYa site) but the FixYa server will not let me. You can find it on the GE website under the links for Consumer Electronics.

CL code

I'm getting CL too, and don't know what that means, but I DO know how to get your remote phones to work. Before I lost the manual I had to do that. Simply set each one in the main charger for about 20 seconds and they will work.

I have a Ge 25942EE4-C phone and the Cl is flashing I have looked the phone over for a button to set this can you please assist me?

We had this same problem and seeing that the Manual is incorrect, I searched GE website manuals to find a different one that at least looked like the right model and found out how to clear the CL message code. This is just a time/day setting and it is to be done by the handset, not the base unit, With the handset, press the flash key, then press #8. You should now see the time flashing in the display. Adjust the time then press the pound key. Now the day is flashing in the display. adjust the day with the up arrow, then press the pound key to finish. Your base unit will announce the time and day is set and the CL is gone.... good luck

Maybe your memory is full. If it's full, it won't save the messages.
