SOURCE: my red light wont go out on cisco 7940 phone, even

Hi,

Has this just stopped working, or has it never been working?

On the call manager / CME the MWI (Message Waiting Indicator) needs to be configured. This could be undertaken either via the GUI or from the CLI

For instance ...

ephone-dn 30
number 8000...
mwi on
!
!
ephone-dn 31
number 8001...
mwi off

and also mapped to each phone to enable MWI status

ephone-dn 1 dual-line
number 111
label Chris
name fred
call-forward busy 800
call-forward noan 800 timeout 10
huntstop channel
mwi-type visual

Complete config details are at:http://www.ciscosystems.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucme/command/reference/cme_m1ht.html#wp1018439

If this helps pls leave feedback

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.

Message light blinking,but there is no message on phone.


Pressing the Voice Mail button only checks messages on the FIRST LINE. The Message Waiting Indicator (MWI) lights of all lines. Check the icon next to your other line buttons. One should be an envelope. Press that Line Button, THEN press the Voice Mail button.

MESSAGE LIGHT INDICATOR WILL NOT FLASH AFTER SOMEONE HAS LEFT A MESSAGE


If this is a system-wide problem affecting all phones then the voice mail integration is not programmed correctly. If this problem is affecting only 1 phone, then the VM message waiting function is disabled on the user's voice mail account or the status of the user's message waiting light is out-of-synch with the VM controller (Light on when the system think's it's off and vice-versa). Contact your system support person or service company for further assistance.

Message light blinking but no message there cannot remove message light


you have to log in to your account at the phone service provider and reset message waiting indicator. If you have a contract company managing your ip phone service, call them, and say you need the message indicator reset.

I have a uniden dect1580 6.0 and the red light in the left hand corner blinks all the time.


That is the message waiting indicator, it is telling you that your Call Notes (Or whatever your service provider calls it's voicemail) has a message waiting. If you do not have a message waiting, you can turn the light of by following these steps:

Resetting the voice message waiting indicator
When you receive a new voice mail message, the new message LED on the top of the handset flashes and
appears in the handset display. In the event your message waiting light gets out of sync with your phone company’s
voice messaging system, you can manually reset it back to the “No messages waiting” state.
Press and hold FIND on the base for five seconds.
Note: The handsets connected to the base will start to beep, however, keep pressing for five seconds.
A beep sounds and the message alert tone is reset.

My message button will not stop flashin on main phone


The term we used for this back when I worked for the phone company was a "stuck message waiting indicator" and the way to fix it was:

Call yourself and leave a message.
Hang up and wait 2 minutes (we used to say 5 minutes, but 2 is plenty)
Retreive/delete your voice mail message
Hang up and wait 2 minutes


That should clear the blinking light.

Clear Messages Waiting


Leave yourself a message, listen to it, then save it in your voicemail box. This will reset the phone company's answer system. I only have the blinking problem when my voicemailbox with comcast is empty.
