II. Signal Problems

Blinking Red Light

The red light (LED - light emitting diode) notifies you of a message waiting and will blink at regular intervals until the message is read. (You may read that message by pressing the apad.jpg - 1163 Bytes key.) While reading messages, to clear the blinking red light, press asterick.jpg - 1158 Bytes or continue pressing apad.jpg - 1163 Bytes until all the messages have been read.

If the light is flickering, your data signal is bad. Move the antenna until the light goes out or locate the receiver in another part of the room. This problem occurs the further you are from the station or when there is a lot of RF noise, such as having a computer or other electronic device near the receiver.

If you canít get a good signal, you will need to add an antenna. The signal can be split off of an outdoor TV antenna or you may use rabbit ears. (If you arenít familiar with rabbit ears, consult your parents!)
  • no light = good data and good signal
  • flickering light = bad data
  • blinking light at equal intervals = unread message
