Multiple handsets registered to one base works well. The extra base can be used as a remote charging dock without registering a handset.
Trying to register a handset to two bases is neither possible nor useful.
Good luck! ----------------
OTOH, the specific model number was not given. While I have never heard of registering a handset to more than one base, nor made it happen by accident, maybe we all do "...learn something new everyday...".
What is the specific model number, and the date of manufacture ? Thanks! a r t ---------------------------------------------
I don't have this model but I have had two Siemens phone systems. Typically, when the handset says "Searching" it is trying to connect to the base station (the part actually connected to the phone line). This can happen if the handset is too far from the base station to connect to it wirelessly. It can also happen if the handset has become unregistered from the base station (or was never registered to begin with). If the distance issue is not the problem, look in your documentation for how to register the handset and give that a try.
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 handset must be registered to the base unit if the system has multiple handset ability, the manual will tell how to register the handset. If the system is a two handset system then only two handsets can be registered.
Thats because there are too many handsets registered to base OR it can't find the base. Did you set it to register then pressed the little tab in on the bottom of the base? You have to hold tab down and keep phone close to base (a foot or so). If handset goes out of reg mode, you have to put it back in, then quickly press base tab down again before it stops.
I went through this exercise with a Siemens Gigaset 8800. The solution is to DE-register the handset first. Then register it with your base. This function can likely be accessed in the handset menu. The phone you purchased is apparently still registered to the previous user's base.
One handset is preregistered to the base. You had two. You indicated returning the pin to 0000. To do so, you must have entered a code to deregister the pin and go to factory defaults. Your best option is to call and let them walk you through a clearing and registration process if the above links does not suffice to the quick reference guide.
You will need to register it to your base station before it will work. You do so by holding down the registration/page key on the bottom of your base for a couple of seconds, and then grab your SL30 and push Menu, scroll down to the option of Handset settings, press OK, then scroll to "registration" and push OK, select base station 1, press OK, then enter the default pin of 0000 and press ok. Repeat these steps if first not successful. You can download a manual for free on our website at www.cordlessrepair.com
