Can't get the mesage light to stop blinking

I have moved and changed phone service to another carrier. I plugged in my GE cordless phone and the message light is blinking(probably because there were messages when it was unplugged frome the old house). I hasve tried pulling the battery and have had no success. How do I get the thing to stop blinking. I have no messages with my current phone service so I know that is not the problem.

    Sorry, the model number is 28111EE2-A. I tried unplugging it from the wall power and phone line. When I plugged the power back in, the phone blinked message waiting before I even plugged the phone line in. When I plugged the phone line in, the message stayed the same and the light continues blinking. Please help. I would like to know when I really have a message not to mention, the blinking light is annoying when it is not needed. Thanks for your help.

    I have a cordless model 26938GE4-D. It was fine when I unplugged it from it's previous location,but I have now hooked it up to a vonage account/router. As soon as I plugged it up- it began the external red light flashing and the internal stutter (when you pick up the handset.) There is no message.It hasn't rung. won't stop flashing.

    I tried removing power- didn't work-

You forgot to supply a model number, but is this a cordless with an answering machine or did the message light blink when you had messages from the phone company provided voice mail?

If it's the former, pressing the play button and/or holding down the ERASE button will make the messages disappear.

If it's the latter, here's where the fun begins. Message lamps are lit from a signal generated from the phone line. Stutter dial tone is usually the cause, and it could be just because you have a feature enabled. I think the cadence of the call forwarding dial tone is enough to set off MW, but I'm not there to hear it :-)

Try unplugging the phone completely, then plug it in without the outside line. I'm guessing the display will tell you there's no outside line, but what does the message waiting light do? Then plug in the line and see if it lights immediately or after some delay. It may test the line as soon as you plug it into the wall and be hearing the funny dial tone.

Comment back after you've done this.

GE DECT 6.0 Phone Light Blinks

First thing to try is to pick up handset or place on speaker. On the answer machine itself without trying to call your cable providers voice mail the message button to ensure all messages have been heard or erased.
Second, unplug your phone power from the wall and wait two minutes before powering on the phone.
Last replace batteries in the phone if you have batteries in the phone now...may be low battery signal.

There is no message but the message light is blinking

You 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.

Are you in a 'thick' building that may be preventing the phone from getting the date/time set signal? If so, try plugging the phone in as close to a window as possible to eliminate any possible interference.
