Re: connection between two phones

Let me tell you how to solve your problem in a way you can best understand. :) yikes..

Your handset has lost the ability to communicate with your base. If you have had storms in your area, or you had a static discharge on the handset (it is winter), it could make this happen, sometimes terminally (needs repair or replacement). However, You need to attempt to re-register your handset to the base station, its fairly easy to do. You will have to put your handset and base into "registration mode" simultaneously. Grab your fully charged handset and stand your base station. On your cordless handset push menu, scroll down to base settings, push ok, scroll down to base station 2, then press ok, scroll down to register and push ok, enter your base pin, or 0000 and push ok. Handset should be flashing "registering base station 2". Now quickly, On your base station push menu,scroll forward to system settings, push select, enter your pin or 0000 then push select. Push select again for Handset Registration, the screen should be flashing Handset registering or something to that effect ( I am at home ). So now your base and handset are "searching" for each other to register. Watch your handset, and if it sees the base, the display will flash and ask you to assign the intercom number, just push OK. If that doesn't work, I can help you more. Just let me know.

Re: connection between two phones

There might be two problem....1st of programming and 2nd one of internal hardware problem of your handset which is not working.

For the 1st option- Read manual carefully, there is security setting. Follow the steps with second one handset which is not responding.( I can assum that it is power on but not responding to signals..May i right?) After completing security process it will give long beep and will bond with other one and that is necessary for frequiency adjustment. This generally occures after removal of batteries.

For the 2nd option- There is crystal inside your handset which is resposible for generat stable and similar frequency as other handset. When that crystal lost its capacity it results in mismatching of frequency and occures in non connection results in no response from handset. This can be repaired by technician after getting part no of that crytal from your device and replace it with another one. But for this you have to visit technician with all of handsets and attachment as it is necessary to check it working properly after repair, even technician may also need it for setting frequency level.
Is it clears all doubt about this problem then say FIXYA......

Handset won't work

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.

Gigaset Communications have created a process that enables Tesco Internet Phone subscribers with Siemens Dual-Phone DP450 to unlock the phone from the Tesco Internet Phone service. This will enable the phone to be used with other Internet Telephone services. This follows the recent news that the Tesco Internet Phone service is to be ceased from April 26th, 2010.
This is an approved method for unlocking the Siemens Dual-Phone DP450 defined and released by Gigaset Communications, the original supplier of the phone to Tesco. If this procedure is not followed exactly your phone might not work anymore. In this case Gigaset Communications cannot accept any warranty claims.

Unlock procedure
Your Phone should have the latest released Tesco software version, else this unlock procedure will not work.

On your handset:

Select and press OK Enter the system PIN (0000) and press OK
The base station establishes a connection to the internet or a local PC.
YES Press the display key to start the firmware update. If no update is needed, this will be displayed.

To unlock the WEB interface of the DP450, you need to enter the following service code. Please use the exact code as is described below, else your phone will not work anymore.
SETTINGS > BASE 94762001 (Now "Eeprom" must be displayed)
Insert the following number sequence: 01778 06183 06191 Press OK to finish the programming. "Saved" must be displayed on the Handset.

Then release the phone to be able to upgrade it with the latest Retail firmware version.
SETTING > BASE 94762001 (Now "Eeprom" must be displayed)
Now insert this number sequence: 04850 04351 04864 Press OK to finish the programming. "Saved" must be displayed on the Handset.

After this procedure you can upgrade your phone to use the latest retail firmware version.
Select and press OK Enter the system PIN (0000) and press OK
The base station establishes a connection to the internet or a local PC.
YES Press the display key to start the firmware update.

Please Note: The firmware update can last up to 3 minutes.

Your Phone is by default configured to use the Internet Telephone service, if you want to change this to set the default to the land line you need to change this in the web interface from your phone. How to do this, download the Gigaset S450 IP manual from the Gigaset web-site URL: ... nuals.html

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.
