Siemens c475 cordless handsets not working

I have a siemens c475 cordless phone with two handsets. Both handsets are flashing an icon in the top right hand corner of the screen (looks like right-pointing arrows >>>>), and the words 'Base 1' in the middle of the screen. Neither phone is working either to make or receive calls. The batteries are fully charged, and the phone was working fine earlier today. What does the icon mean, and is there a way to fix the problem?

SOURCE: Registering a base station of Siemens Gigaset 2415 Cordless Phone

To register your handset to that base station, you must put the base station in registration mode at the same time you put the handset in registration mode. This is how you do it. At the handset you push OK when it asks you to register. If it asks you for the pin enter 0000 (factory pin) and push OK. The handset should say "registering base 1". Then at the base press the page/reg key down until it flashes (its to the immediate right of the cradle where you rest the handset for charging). That puts the base in registration mode and now its looking for the handset and vise versa. Now watch your handsets display. If it asks to to select an intercom number, then push ok and your done. If it says "invalid pin" then you need to reset your pin on your base (thats a different problem see below). If the handset times out and never registers, you need to repeat the process a couple times, you may have a bad base or it needs to be defaulted. If you need more help you can download a manual for free or get free technical help at the link below.

If you need to default your pin, you can do so but it will default the base station to factory settings. To do so remove the power from your base, hold your page/registration key down, and apply power back to the base. Count to 15, then let off the key. Turn off the power, count to five, then apply power again and follow the steps again to register the handset and you will need to reregister every handset that was previously running on it.

Then the base is bad. I have 1 base like that also... nothing can be done other than send it out to be rebuilt.

Sorry,

SOURCE: my siemens 4010 cordless phone is saying "Base Search" recently

"Base Search" will display for several reasons.

  1. The base station is turned off or not working properly.
  2. The handset is not registered.
  3. The handset may be registered somewhere else, de-register it.
  4. The units (both base and handset/s) may need to be reset to factory default.
You may have already tried this.

SOURCE: My Siemens gigaset A 490

To register the Gigaset handset, you need to have the handset near the base. Press and hold the Register/Paging button on the base for 3+ seconds (it's hidden by the handset when on the base). A shorter press of the button will activate the Paging feature. Then within 60 seconds of pressing the Register button on the base, press Menu and select Settings. Press OK and go to Handset. Press OK and then select Register HS. Enter the base PIN (default is 0000) and then press OK. (Use the up/down arrows to navigate the menus.) You will see Registering flash on the display of the handset for approximately 1 minute while the registration is processed.

The manual for the Gigaset A490 is available here: http://gigaset.com/medias/sys_master/A31008-M2200-R301-2-3S19_en-fr-es_USA_CAN.pdf . If you need it in another language (or country), start here: http://gigaset.com/hq/en/product/GIGASETA490.html?tab=manuals .

I hope this helps.

No, that typically is used to notifiy you that you have a voicemail.
It's not an indicator of phone working.

VS205 what does the flashing mail sign mean?


If you subscribe to call answer service with your phone company, a mail indicator might coincide with a stuttering dial tone, to indicate a message waiting. If on the Bell Canada network, dial *98 to check your voicemail. Once all new messages have been listened to, the dial tone will stop stuttering, and the indicator will hopefully follow suit.
