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.

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.

Hi I am hoping you can help me. I own a Siemens Gigaset A58H handset which up until 48 hours ago has been working perfectly. One day, the voicemail light indicated I had new voicemails and so I went to...

You need to find your manual to the phone in case you need to reset the phone.
When flashing Base like that, it has lost connection to the base charging station. It can be the power to the base unit or the phone cable that is faulty.
In any case the phone cannot connect to the base unit, so my advice would be to check the base unit (normally also the charging station), and make sure that all cables are connected and it is turned on.
It sounds like a bit of a dummy advice, but in my 17 years of experience, it is nearly always a cable problem when described like yours. It can be something as simple as someone unplugged the unit to vacuum or something like that and forgot to plug it back in.

If that isn't the case, then see the first line I wrote. Then you might need to reset the phone. The few wireless phones I've had, it would include either letting it run out of power or removing the battery and then a combination of buttons you had to press. But that would be mentioned in the manual.

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