Question about Siemens Gigaset 4215 Cordless Phone

2 Answers

Phones will not register

I have a SIEMENS GIGASET 4215 with two handsets. They have been working fine both before and since I moved in April 2007.
A few days following a two-hour power outage, the thee phones began to flash "base 1" and it was not possible to make or receive phone calls.
I removed each phone from the stand/charger and took the batteries out of the phones.
I recharged the batteries and replaced each phone in its stand. It flashed "Base 1". It just kept flashing this way. So I pressed the [END] button to re-register each phone - starting with the base unit - and replaced in the stand and it flashed "Searching...". I left it like this and it just keeps flashing "Searching...".
Is there a solution to this problem, or should I just scrap these phones and start over with new ones?
Many thanks for your help.

    Thanks Geno69.

    I tried your suggestions - 3 times with each handset without any success. Currently two handsets are flashing 'Searching' and one is flashing 'Base 1'.

    I didn't previously indicate that the 'signal strength' icon is also flashing at the same time, and is 'blank' (no black fill on icon).

    I don't know whether or not this has any bearing on the problem but the phone batteries are fully charged and the 3 phones are standing side-by-side, plugged in and with the handset(s) firmly in the stand(s).

    I appreciate and thank you for your trouble.

    Thank you Genoa69. I appreciate your expert input. Now I know not to waste any more time on this and will proceed with a replacement phone set.

    Have registered pendant with base.The status LED flashes blue/red when I remove the pendant from the charger. After a few minutes all LED's are off. Pressing the big red button has no effect on base.

Try this:
Pick a handheld, press Menu - H/set settings - Reg Handset - Select Base 1, enter 0000 as password. Now on the bottom of the base station press and hold the Register button in for about 10 seconds or until the h/set beeps.

    Also for the Siemens 4215 base, there is a hidden rest procedure to manually reset the entire base:

    1. Unplug AC adaptor

    2. Press and hold reg button on bottom of base.

    3. Plug in AC adaptor while holding in reg button.

    4. Keep reg button held in for 25 seconds then release.

    This should reset the base to factory defaults with a password of 0000.

    Then register handsets as stated in my previous post.

    Then the base is bad. I have 2 of them like that. Both seemed to happen when I let the ans mach hit it's limit. When I got done deleting messages, the unit was dead and no handsets would register. I think you now have a brick.




Geno69's solution (step 1 and 2) worked for me with a siemens gigaset a160.

thanks :)

Display keeps saying 'searching'

I don't have this model but I have had two Siemens phone systems. Typically, when the handset says "Searching" it is trying to connect to the base station (the part actually connected to the phone line). This can happen if the handset is too far from the base station to connect to it wirelessly. It can also happen if the handset has become unregistered from the base station (or was never registered to begin with). If the distance issue is not the problem, look in your documentation for how to register the handset and give that a try.

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.

Merging 2 siemens gigaset 4215 systems (one base with 2 phones + 2 phones)

If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.

When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.

My siemens gigaset 4215 and 4000 don't work and need some kind of code whats the code?

Hello, Almost never is it the handset that is bad when those symptoms occur. It sounds as if your base has gotten hit by a power surge and won't boot (the handset now can't "talk to" the base and its always searching for it). Most people report this after a storm has passed through their area. You can try re-registering the handset to the base, but unfortunately it probably won't work, sorry. You can order the base only and register your handset to the replacement base when you get it. To order a replacement base using google, search for Siemens Cordless Repair and click the first non sponsored link. Good Luck

Answering machine

Unfortunately the 4010 model does not have a built in answering machine but does have features to work with your local telephone companies voice mail. If you want to keep your same phones and get a base with a built in answering machine you will need to replace your 4010 base with a 4015 base (up to three handsets), or a 4215 base (up to four handsets). But don't toss out your old base, you can use it to extend your range if you ever use a 4200 series handset that will allow you to register each handset to up to four seperate bases simultaneously to extend the range. You can buy the 4015 or 4215 base only and save yourself some money. You can google Siemens cordless repair or go to the Siemens website to find a few options.
