Siemens gigaset 2420 two line phone drops calls

My Siemens Gigaset 2420 suddenly started dropping calls. Line 2 rings once or twice; if I catch the call before the phone misbehaves, i.e., on the first ring, the call is fine; if not, the call just disappears, the system does not capture call data and the call does not go to the answering system. This also affects other non-Siemens phones in the house. It seems the Gigaset is taking the call and immediately disconnecting it. Out going calls are fine. Line 1 is fine. I have disconnected the Gigaset, and as long as the Gigaset remains disconnected, the rest of the phones in the house work fine; re-connect the gigaset, re-establish the problem. I have also disconnected the power and re-connected it -- no help. Any ideas?

    When I am on the phone and another call comes in on the other line (we use both of the phone lines), sometimes all the lights on the phone light up and then BOTH calls are dropped (all the lights go OUT). If I wait, the phone rings again, all the lights light up, and then go out.



    I saw a response on another site that said this is a known firmware bug, and that if you clear your CALLERS log, it will fix it. I did that, powered my phone off and on, and it seems to be working (I've done about 8 tests different call-tests so far over about 20 minutes). Good luck to you.

SOURCE: Siemens Gigaset AL14H - mailbox full

I know this problem was posted ages ago, and no doubt the poster has solved it, but I hope giving a solution now is useful for some poor soul who, like me, who has spent ages surfing trying to find a solution, to no avail.

Basically, the problem is NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR PHONE. I discovered that our telephone supplier (Virgin Media in our case) gave us a free voicemail service without telling us. This service cuts in before the answerphone and takes messages which you don't know are there - apparently they are indicated by a break in dial tone but of course with Gigaset phones you don't use a dial tone!

So, people leave you messages (which you don't know are there, and so ignore) and after a while your mailbox gets full.

To access this mailbox you need to call 1571 - when you finally discover this you'll be surprised at how many important calls you've ignored.

To turn the service off you need to call the phone provider and it can take 24 hours for it to be turned off. Beware though, it took me 20 minutes to get through to the service provider. I then spoke to someone in India and was then transferred to someone in England who resolved the problem.

Finally we are back to normal. Phew!

The default PIN is 0000.

Siemens 2520 gigaset base


You will need to customize your Call log settings to show which area code your located in so it will redial from the log properly. To do so, push Menu, then scroll to system settings, push select, then scroll to Area Codes, push select and specify the area code that you are in. If you need additional assistance, go to the link below which is the full manual on PDF, then go to page 48. Hope that helps. http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%202420%20Plus_guide.pdf

Siemens 2520 gigaset base


Hi Mike,

Its an easy fix, you need to tell the phone what area code your in. Push menu, go to system settings, enter your pin, scroll forward to "area codes" press enter twice, enter your area code and push enter to save. Now the phone knows where your located and wont add the 1 and the area code. CG

I have the same problem with mine - a Siemens 2420 base. The calls come in, all the lights flash, then the thing clicks and resets. At this point, it can only be used for outgoing calls. i think i'm going to retire it. Too bad, cause the speakerphone was one of the best ever.

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.

Siemens 8825 gigset 2 line phone


If your system was working fine, and it all of a sudden started doing this, it sounds like your base has taken a surge of some kind. Your base needs replacing. You can try re-registering the handsets, but from my experience the problem is fatal. Now if this is a new installation and the handsets never work yet on the base, you just need to register them. You can download the manuals or get tech tips at Siemens website, gigaset FAQ pages.

Line cut off problem


That is a common problem with this model, normally happens after a storm passes through. Unfortunately there is no easy fix for on site, it would need to be sent in for repair or replaced. You can google Siemens Cordless Repair to find service facilities.
