Plantronics model 340. The battery keeps dying in this model headset, this is my wife's second headset in 8 months. Is there a trick to get more battery life from these headsets?

    The battery on our Plantronics 340 headset has lasted for about 10 months. We are disappointed in the product since we paid high-end dollar for the unit and expected it to last as long as our cell-phone battery.

Plantronics sells a pice of **** what works only a short time. For example any hearing aid you by you can replace the battery but here is build that way for one reason.... they want you to by a new one and create more waste. Soluition: Do not by that brand!

My 340 headset will not turn on

Try these steps from the user guide and then pair up your headset to the phone. "Before using, you must first charge your headset. 20 minutes = minimum charge. 2 hours = full charge. Light is solid red when battery is charging. Press the control button for 2 seconds to power on. Press the control button for 3 seconds to power off." If you're still having problems, then it's time to get a new one, sorry.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

This would usually happens only, if your BATTERY present is the BT headset is completely dry or worn out..

Try charging your headset for another 8 hours and try again, If its not charging you have to take it to plantronics service center to change the battery,

But mostly after charging for 8 hours, it would work.

Please revert me, if you need more assistance, i would be very glad to assist you more.

I Can`t switch my headset on, and it stops charging after 20 secs

Move the call control button up or down, the indicator light will flash blue if it's paired or blue and red. If it flashes blue and red you need to pair phone with the headset. the passkey is 0000.

I had to insert the charger plug very hard to start charging. Push it firmly till you hear a "clic" once you hear the clic, wait for a moment (you only need to do this the first time)
