Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

I have cleared out my voice mail messages through xfinity connect voice, but the message light on my Uniden telephone answering system is still blinking which means I have messages. How do I stop the blinking light?

Hello,

1. Try lifting the phone of the base stand.

2. Try removing the cable from the back of the base stand.

I removed the batteries, and dissconnected the power supplies and phone line from all of my phones for over 10 minutes, and the light still flashes and when you pick up the phone to make a call it makes the sound like you have a v-mail.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

Here is how I solved that problem when it happened to me.

 

I used my cell phone to call the home phone and left a message.

 

I deleted the message. Problem solved.

 

What I cannot recall is if I deleted the message online or on the phone.

Here's the fix...

Sign in to your Comcast acount. Click on the "Xfinity dot com" link at the top of the page. Then click on "Voice" tab, then "Voicemail". Read/delete any voicemails and your message light will stop blinking. I've had to do this twice. Worked both times.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

I have the same problem.  Started when I upgraded my Comcast modem because I increased the internet speed.  Now using SMC d3gnv.  Voicemail indicator light does not go out after listening to VM.  Sometimes, it goes out 2-3 days later.  This happens on 2 different phones.

 

Called Comcast service and was basically told I was crazy.  Change in modem can't make that happen.  Must be my phones.  I have CenturyLink service also and these phones work on those lines just fine.  It is not the phones.

 

I have reset the modem.  The only way I get the light to go out is to unplug the phone and remove the battery.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

As suggested, I called myself from another phone, then deleted the message and the blinking and signal for having a VM stopped. Thanks so much as Comcast only tried to reset the modem which didn't work. It must be an uneven signal from Comcast that causing this? Is this something one should regularly expect from Comcast?

Pick up the handset, dial *99 and you can listen to your messages that are stored with Comcast.  These are messages that you received while you were on the phone, the phone was turned off, or some other reason.

After listening to your messages, to delete the messages hit 77.

Blinking red light went out for me when I figured this out!

ok for the UNIDEN system I did this - Go into MENU, then GLOBAL SETUP, then to VMWI(Voicemail Message Waiting Indicator) RESET, select yes but once you select 'yes' do not touch any other button-just put the phone back in the cradle and you should hear a beep-job done!

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

IT WORKED!!! I called home from the cell-phone, said "hello" - and then did the *99 on the home phone, heard my greeting, pressed 7 and: NO MORE BLINKY. Good advice - thank you!

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

Have Uniden phone so I can just switch off the light via the reset process but it's happening about 6 times a day & never any vmails. Comcast did some kind of reset and tried unplugging the base unit. Nothing fixes it so far.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

With the Uniden, I can easily turn the light off with a couple button pushes - the problem is that I'm getting many of these false lights a day - 6 just yesterday. I need to end the issue.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

Leaving a message from another phone and then *99 from the home phone and deleting it works.

 

However,  according the Comcast, I don't have voicemail........

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

I called my home phone from my cell and left a message, IT WORKED!  Thank you! This answer is better than the one I got by calling Comcast itself, No help there and I could not understand the instructions because of the woman's terrible accent. I fouund myself just responding yes because I had no idea what she was trying to tell me.

Re: Message light blinking even though I have no voice messages

The call from another phone, leave a message and then delete it worked for me.
