The above link is the manual. I was looking at pgs 15, 16, and 18. On pg 18 it says there is a default code that will retrieve messages you enter from phone, that's probably it I think. Download is 12.8mb.

That might be the Voice Mail Waiting Indicator.
On the D1680 and similar handsets, it is reset by:

1. press [menu]
2. scroll down to "Global Setup", press [select]
3. scroll down to "VMWI Reset", press [select]
4. scroll down from "No" to "Yes", press [select]
5. handset will chirp, blinking lamp goes out,
6. press [END]

Other models, check your manual. The model number
is on a small sticker under the battery in the handset --

First be sure the handset battery is well charged as a weak
battery will interfere with the registration process.

Then try the following ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, and similar):

( I ) Deregister the handset:

Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

( II ) Now, to re-register the handset:

Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
after ~30 seconds the handset should display
"Handset #" and be good to go...

...or it will display "Registration Failed"
If "...Failed", try from ( I ) again.

Good luck!

This sounds like Handset #1 has lost its "registration" with
the base. De-registering & re-registering is often easy.

First, be sure the handset battery is well charged as a
weak battery will interfere with the registration process.
Then try this ( 'works for the D1680, D1481, & similar):

To deregister the handset:

1. Press and hold the [END] and [ # ] keys at the same time,
after a few seconds the display will say
"System Reset, Deregister Handset"
press [SELECT]
scroll to "Base Unavailable"
press [SELECT] (chirps) press [END]
display reads "Place in base..."

Next, to re-register the handset:

2. Set the handset into the base cradle and wait,
within ~30 seconds the handset should display
a "Handset #" and be good to go.

Good luck!

Compatibility is doubtful: I just tried to register a
D1680 handset to a D1580 base and it failed.
Both the handset & base are "known good" but
they will not pair together.

It does not hurt to try, be sure your handset is
de-registered (hold the [END] and [ # ] keys
at the same time until the screen displays the
deregister instructions) and the battery well
charged.

Good luck!

You did not mention a specific model number; my D1481
has no such icon -- but my D1680 does, so I'll answer ref.
the D1680 model cordless phones....

That icon is a Status Report for the answering machine.
It says the answerer is ON (or off) and a digit shows how
many messages are stored ( on mine, 1 old message is still
there and not yet deleted ). Note a "cassette tape" symbol
on the bottom row of keys accesses the answering machine
from the handset.

Other models, check your manual. The model number
is on a small sticker under the battery in the handset --

The easiest way out of "Silent Mode Always On" is to just turn
[ OFF ] the Answering Machine, then turn it back [on].

Use the [ANS on/off] button on the base, do not unplug anything.
Good luck!
