Question about Siemens Gigaset 2420 Phone
Phone base display isn't legible. Partial characters are showing, so I can't program the system.
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'll find someone with a multi-meter and let you know! You are correct - 12v 400 mA

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.
