Question about Siemens Gigaset A580 IP Cordless Phone

1 Answer

Hi I am hoping you can help me. I own a Siemens Gigaset A58H handset which up until 48 hours ago has been working perfectly. One day, the voicemail light indicated I had new voicemails and so I went to push the voicemail button to listen to these. However, I think that I may have pressed something else since the voicemail light suddenly went off, the screen also changed and the whole phone appeared "dead" as in no lights, etc. The screen now has the word "Base" flashing along with a little flashing icon in the top left corner (looks like network or connection icon). The menu is otherwise responsive (I can change settings, dates, ring tones, etc), yet I am unable to get rid of the flashing display and my phone is no longer making or receiving calls. I am sure there is a simple solution to this, unfortunately, I have been unable to find it - I hope you can help. Many thanks

You need to find your manual to the phone in case you need to reset the phone.
When flashing Base like that, it has lost connection to the base charging station. It can be the power to the base unit or the phone cable that is faulty.
In any case the phone cannot connect to the base unit, so my advice would be to check the base unit (normally also the charging station), and make sure that all cables are connected and it is turned on.
It sounds like a bit of a dummy advice, but in my 17 years of experience, it is nearly always a cable problem when described like yours. It can be something as simple as someone unplugged the unit to vacuum or something like that and forgot to plug it back in.

If that isn't the case, then see the first line I wrote. Then you might need to reset the phone. The few wireless phones I've had, it would include either letting it run out of power or removing the battery and then a combination of buttons you had to press. But that would be mentioned in the manual.

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.

How do i fix my landline phone?


hmm im not sure if there's an issue with the base for your wireless phones but it maybe that the phones arent able to determine if the base is active (EG the right base for the phones) some may need to be paired up to the base or the base maybe malfunctioning due to the lightning storm (Phone lines are prone to being struck at times which could send a surge to some types of phone bases and ruin them)

My Siemens gigaset A 490 cordless phone is showing Register HS what i have to do pl advise


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 manual for the Gigaset A490 is available here: http://gigaset.com/medias/sys_master/A31008-M2200-R301-2-3S19_en-fr-es_USA_CAN.pdf . If you need it in another language (or country), start here: http://gigaset.com/hq/en/product/GIGASETA490.html?tab=manuals .

I hope this helps.

Red light not flashing on handset


No, that typically is used to notifiy you that you have a voicemail.
It's not an indicator of phone working.

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.

Problem Siemens Gigaset 4000 and 4200


If you had a storm, and the only handset that works shows line in use, then your base has gone bad and needs repair. The reason the phones are flashing base 1 or something to that effect is because they don't see the base anymore, which typically means no phones will see your base, so its odd that one phone is actually seeing the base. Either way, you can try re-registering the phones to the base, but if you get the line in use after they register (if they will register), then your base is bad. If they won't register, your base is bad. For additional assistance you can go to www.cordlessrepair.com
