Question about Siemens 242 Cordless Phone (242B)

Open Question

SIEMENS 6010 cordless: When I dial a number I cannot hear a ringing tone in the handset, although otherwise the phone works, and rings when receiving calls. This only happened today when I nearly dropped it, and fumbled - evidently I inadvertently knocked off a button!

Hi Krister,

It sounds from your symptoms (no pun intended) that your handset receiver/speaker has gone bad, or if you use a headset, the circuit might have gotten ripped open from tension from the headset plug. You can try plugging in a standard 2.5 mm plug headset into it (real common headset). My guess is that you will be able to hear dialtone using a headset and use the phone, but the phone will continue not ring or make key beeps.

Its fixable, but with the Siemens models don't let anyone try to open it. To work properly it needs to snap together tight, and guaranteed they will gouge the plastic and break the more than 10 tabs that keep it held snug together, there are no screws. The skill to open them without damaging them is proper training and muscle memory, which is reserved for the people that do it daily, plus if the plastic needs replacing it will add to your costs. Nevertheless, if you want it fixed, just google "Siemens Cordless Repair" and click the first or second non sponsored link to make arrangements to get it fixed. Good Luck and let me know if I was right about the headset audio.

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

Hi James, Here is a link to the instructions below to download the Siemens Gigaset Manual for free or for Siemens repair services. However, on the 4000 model you can easily set the time by pushing menu, scroll down to base settings push OK, push OK again for clock, then scroll down to TIME, and push OK and make your changes. Also, you can change the date, as you saw in the menu. If your using a 4200 handset, the menu is slightly different, but similar. And if you get caller id, the phone will automatically read the system date and time from the phone company so you never have to set your time again. Here is the link for the manual, you may need to go to a different manual depending on your base station model. Good Luck, CG http://www.barclayent.com/manuals/Gigaset%204000%20Quick%20Start.pdf

When dialing with my logitech skype phone I can't hear any sound until the other person answers the phone. It only happens with skype to skype calls. It works perfectly calling regular phones.


This is probably because dial tones and ringing tones are part of an archaic system. Your cell phone still makes these noises as a courtesy, and you hear the dial tones/ringing tones when you make regular calls because your phone is communicating with the standard phone system.

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.
