    Thank you for looking into my problem. It turned out to be an issue with the phone jack. The base was not making proper contact, so I move it to another one and it is now working.

    I also did have to reset the base. Thanks for all your replies. Now I will work on the answering machine.

Make sure the answering machine is turned on for both lines. To check settings: Scroll, using BACK and FWD, to desired setting. 1. Press MENU 2. Scroll to "ANSWERING SYSTEM MENU" then press SELECT 3. Scroll to "LINE 1 SETTINGS" and press SELECT 4. Scroll to "ANSWERING SYSTEM ON/OFF." Check to see if it is set to "ON," as this is the default setting. 5. Exit MENU and Repeat steps 1 thru 4 for LINE 2 SETTINGS. I don't know if you have Acrobat Reader for .pdf files but below is a link to the owner's manual for this phone. If you can, download and look at the bottom of page 79 of 116 for more help. http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000052870.pdf Good luck.

SOURCE: Siemens Gigaset 2420 corded unit resets when calls received

OK, here's what happened. I had the same issue of the phone resetting when a call came in, I thought it was a power issue and through some testing it was not. Here's the fix...Menu \ system settings \ enter pin (if you haven't changed it it is 0000) scroll to factory default and reset. This fixed the problem somehow for me, make sure to write down any impotant messages because it will erase everyting (silly me). I hope this helps.

SOURCE: No dial tone

It seems you can receive the calls and dial the numbers, by clicking hand free key you will hear the tone. Regarding answering machine I wonder you activate it or not for activating the machine just click the On/Off key on the base or from the main menu on the hand set choose Voice Mail section then activate Answering Machine, in this section you have other options such as Ring Delay (for choosing the delay before Ans.Mach. pick up the phone), Announcements (playing and recording announcements) and Massage Length.

When receiving a call on my gigaset al18h I can hear the person talking but they cannot hear me


The problem can be in two vertients:
1.-  You have the phone in "mute" position, then nobody can hear you, this is easy to identify looking at the lcd scree on the phone for an icon MUTE or the symbol of a microphone with a transverse line on it. 
2.- The microphone piece inside the handset is broken or one of its 2 wires is desconnected or desolded, you can try to open the handset but if you do not have any idea what are you doing, don't try. You can cause a worse damage in the process. 
I  think the second choice is more likely your issue, since the MUTE function resets itself when you hang up a call.

I bought your digital cordless phones two weeks ago and now we recieve no incoming calls because they do not ring although we know that they are ringing also we cannot ring out we hear the number being...


They're not mine or FixYa's phones, they are yours.

Are you hearing dial tone before you ring out? When a phone doesn't dial or ring, it's the first sign that it's not connected to a working phone line. Try a regular phone in the same jack first.

I can make and receive calls, but I cannot hear anything.


Check Windows Sound mixer for application volume. Down in system tray at right side of taskbar double click sound icon for XP or click sound icon once and click Mixer for Vista. Look through volume settings for your phone application. Make sure it is not muted and volume is up.

Phone is muted...No one can hear me when I am calling, or answering a call. I can hear them fine. Phone shows "muted"?? How do you "un" mute?


Receiving Calls
1. To answer a call, touch or open the slide.
 If the slide is closed, simply slide it up.
 If the slide is closed, press the Voice
Commands key twice, then touch .
 If the slide is open and the touch buttons are
lit, touch .
NOTE If you touch Left Soft Key [Quiet] while the
phone is ringing, the ringing or vibration is muted
for that call.
NOTE If you touch Right Soft Key [Ignore] while the
phone is ringing, the call will end.



Mute Function
The Mute Function prevents the transmission of
your voice to the caller. To quickly activate Mute
touch Left Soft Key [Mute], then to unmute
touch Left Soft Key [Unmute].

NOTE! while doing this you must call someone then while talking with him touch Left Soft Key [Unmute] to Unmute

Hope it help you out ^_^
try download the manual if you loose it

When you call out the person recieving the call hears nothing


As far as I am aware there is note default mute setting so it sounds like the mic is faulty or blocked. They are usually at the bottom of the phone so make sure there is nothing blocking it.

If there is no sound then more than likely, the mic is faulty.
