Siemens 2420 Phone System

Phone base display isn't legible. Partial characters are showing, so I can't program the system.

    I have the same problem. I have already replaced the system but would like to fix and donate the system to someone else.

  • Anonymous Dec 10, 2007

    I purchased my Siemens 2420 in February of 2000. Beginning in 2005 the display on the handset began to degrade, making it somewhat harder to read. It has now reached the point where it is barely legible.

The problem with the displays going bad is quite common with this model and other manufacturers (not just Siemens) that useds the same "generation" of displays that came out in early,mid 90's. The only option you have is to send it in for repair to have the display replaced (they are not plug in type displays possible for a do-it-yourself fix). It is totally unrelated to the power supply, but the pixels will come and go so it could have been a coincidence that they reappeared with the new power supply. Here is a link to the Siemens website where you would select the Gigaset folder, and it take you to a FAQ page where you can find tips and repair service options. http://kb.efficient.com/display/1/index.asp?c=&cpc=&cid=&cat=&catURL=&r=6.295413E-02

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.

Not registered


hello there i think this is because you need to register the second handset with the base here are the instructions

REGISTRATION
Registration links the base to a cordless handset. Once a handset is
registered it can use the base’s phone connection. A cordless handset will
not operate until it is registered to the base. During the registration
process, keep the handset near the base.
1. Press the flash/program button on the base until LINK HANDSET shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
2. Press the 1 number key or press the MESSAGES/CID (or) button
on the base to scroll to 1YES.
3. Press flash/program to confirm handset is linked to the base. WAITING
HANDSET REGISTRATION shows in the display.
4. Press the flash/program button on the handset until LINK BASE? shows
in the display. 2NO is the default setting.
5. Press 1 on the handset keypad or cid/vol (or) button on the
handset to scroll to 1YES.confirmation tone when the handset is successfully linked to the base.

Screen display not working properly


not a PERFECT solution, but it's a slight one

i have the same problem. i go through it everyday.
but when my phone does it. i either hold down the joystick, or the delete button, and it puts away the lines for a slight bit. be careful when sliding it down though, sliding it down hard can also cause the lines to show up.

I'm a Fresher in ASP.NET 2.0, Please help me


You need to change the column type from BoundField to TemplateField and call the substring method like this

<asp:TemplateField>
<HeaderTemplate>
Comments
</HeaderTemplate>
<ItemTemplate>
<%#Eval("Comments").ToString().Substring(0, 25)%>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
In this snippet, I am displaying only the first 25 characters of the Comments field.Only problem with this approach is that if even one of the rows contains a comments field with less than 25 characters, this might trigger an error.The fool proof way then is to write a small function in codebehind which will check the length of the field, chop off any extra characters and in case of shorter strings,
