Resolved Question:

Hello. We have a Gigaset 300h system in the house (4 phones), and have returned from a period away to find that nothing works at all. Is there a way of wiping all the settings and starting again? In particular, we don't seem to have a record of a PIN for our system. Is there a way of resetting the system if one does not know one's PIN?

Hi Jonathan. Welcome to justanswer.

If you have forgotten your system PIN, you can reset the base to the original code 0000:

Disconnect the power cable from the base.

Hold down the registration/paging key on the base while reconnecting the power cable to the base. Hold down the key for at

least 5 seconds.

The base has now been reset and the system PIN set to 0000

For resetting the device:

Press Menu-Settings-System-Base Reset-Yes- Press the display key

Thanks, ***** ***** which is the registration/paging key?Then, in your second point about resetting the device (which I take to mean the individual handset) which is the 'display key'?Sorry to be so dumb
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

The registration/paging key is the one which is on the base unit and the display key is the first key from the top left (just below the screen)

I have four phones, three of which are on what I would call dumb bases, with no keys on them at all. The fourth is the master base and it has 8 keys with different symbols on, some of which I can understand but others not. Which of these keys on the base is the registration/paging key?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

Can you confirm the model of your Gigaset phone once again?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
C300H
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

I am sorry. I thought your model was C300.

The reset process is simple for C300H.

Just Press MENU-SETTINGS-SYSTEM-RESET HANDSET. Then press OK to confirm

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
OK that will work (I imagine) for the handsets but what about the main base? I still need to know which of the various keys on the main base is the registration/paging key.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 6 months ago.

You have to do the same procedure on the main base unit as well to reset. The paging key is the one with speaker/wifi kind of a sign. The first key out of the 8 keys present.
