Have you ever looked at your desk phone and wondered why there is a blinking red light? Or maybe a flashing green light? I feel like when it comes to weird blinky things there are two different types of people. Either you just say “Ehh, it’s always been that way” or “why is this blinking! It’s never blinked before!”
Either way, if something is grabbing your attention, then it is probably a good idea to know what it is trying to tell you. Even if it means knowing how to make it stop so the guy next to you with OCD leaves you alone.
No matter what phone you have on your desk when it comes to notifications they are all generally similar. So let’s go over what your phone migh tbe trying to tell you by taking a closer look at the Power Indicator LED patterns on the Yealink T46S.
How to Read the Power Indicator LED on the Yealink T46S
- If the phone’s LED indicator is solid red, that means the phone is initializing
- If the phone’s LED indicator is fast flashing red, that means the phone is ringing or the network is disconnected.
- If the phone’s LED indicator is slow flashing red, that means the phone has received a text message or voicemail
- If the phone’s LED indicator is off then the phone is either off, or there are no notifications or activity.
And there you have it! The next time your Yealink T46S is blinking red at you, you should know exactly what it is trying to tell you.
