Question about Avaya 2410 Corded Phone

1 Answer

Message light continually lit

The message light stays on after retrieving new messages. No new messages, no saved messages, but the light is on! Any idea how I can fix? Thanks in advance, Joan

    I have a GE Dect 6.0 Cordless Phone with the same problem. After I've retrieved all my messages, the message indicator light still blinks. Even after I've deleted all the stored messages I had, it still blinks...drives me crazy thinking that I must have missed someone's phone call when I haven't! If someone could please give me the solution, that would be great! Thanks!

There are different reasons your message light may come on besides voice mail calls. The situation that started the message light needs to be completed before it will go out. I cannot be sure on your particular phone but quite often when I see this problem on other business phone systems it is because someone on another phone in the system tried to intercom and there was no answer setting off the message waiting indicator. (This may require other buttons to be pressed by the caller making it a rare occurrence) If so, you may have to press the message button to return the intercom call. The trick is the other phone needs to be answered as well or the system will not shut off the MSG light. Are there any unusual messages, icons, etc.. on the LCD? If this is not the case, you MAY be able to force the light off by leaving yourself another message and then retrieving the message.

How do I retrieve messages from another extension when the "message" light is on?

If you dial 165 to retrieve voice mail messages, you can dial 165 #6 * and the extension that the MW light is lit on. It will be just as if you dialed 165 or pressed the MESSAGE button on that phone.

Another person in your office could of mistakenly turn your message light on. To turn off your message light press feature 10 then your extension number (feature 10 xx).


Press the MESSAGE button and look at the display.
It will tell you where the message is from and let you erase it via the softkeys.
