Re: red light on main base
Do you have voicemail through your phone co? That blinking can indicate a new voicemail is waiting for you. It could also indicate intermitent charging. Try cleaning the contacts on the base and phone with rubbing alchol and a q-tip.
Hope this helps.

Do you mean the status light on the handset or the one on the base? The status light on the base will be on if the answering system is on. The handset status light will be on but steady when the handset is on the charger. (It's a battery charging indicator in that case; take the handset off the charger to stop the charging system. It provides a trickle charge to offset the battery discharging over time) The light blinks to indicate new messages are available on the answering system. Press the Play button on the base or the Messages/Mute button on the handset to play new messages.
dismiss all messages/notifications (for NO Blinking amber light), disable vibrate
attach the original charger, keep phone on a flat surface, find optimum position where the amber light is continuous.
repeat same if you answer any calls or move the phone
the steady red light showing when in charger shows that
it is charging. the blinking red light when taken out of
charger or turned on and off means it is not fully charged.
leave it in charger till red light turns green.
I had the same problem. Once I read the owners manual I found the charge light blinks to indicate that you have voicemail waiting to be retrieved via telecom provider. Much to my surprise I have a voicemail account I never requested.
Another mystery solved - I now know why I missed so many messages.
The blinking cordless handset seems to be your main issue. IT should not continue to blink after a start up. I think if you replace the handset and sync it to your base station, your problem will be resolved. The T7406 phones are not the most rugged handsets. IF this unit was dropped, a lo of your symptoms make sense.
