I recently had my father send me a Gigaset 2420 system as I am a poor college grad. Upon hooking up the base unit the orange buttons occasionally flash as the unit restarts itself. My parents had cats that chewed on the power supply, I am wondering if this my be the reason, or if the problem might be internal. Any input is greatly appreciated... Thanks!

To reset the Gigaset 2420 Pin
At "System Settings" in the Menu press *65# then press the Select button.
"System PIN Reset" will be displayed (if the PIN was not already the default).
The default PIN is 0000.
There is a way to override and reset... I think you need to press *67# when in the system pin area via menu. Confirm this first though. There is a way to do this though- then you reset it to 0000- google it and you will find the answer-
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.
I had the same issue a while back and I believe a new power supply fixed that problem. If you know anyone with a multi-meter and they know how to use one they can tell you if your power supply is bad or not putting out enough voltage. I believe this system requires 12 volts and 400 milliamps it will say on your current power supply.
I just replied to a similar post. This is a common problem, not only with the Siemens but most all manufacturers that used this design of display on many different devices. And in this case, the display connections are pressed on with a special machine and can't be replaced by a do it yourselfer. Sorry I can only recommend sending it in for repair.
That is a common problem with those types of displays, they are sensitive to heat, cold and any movement. They were used by Siemens, and almost all the other manufacturers during this time period. Unfortunately on this particular model, they are not soldered in, they are pressed on by a machine. So if you don't have a Zebra cable press machine ($1000's), and a brand new display, you can only resort to sending it in for repair. Sorry.
