Question about Samsung WEP500 Wireless Headset

2 Answers

Not Charging I left it charging one night and the next day i wasn't seeing the charge light on the cradle.....I tested the cradle and adapter with a multimeter and it checked out. I'm in jamaica...so my options are SERIOUSLY limited where repair is concerned....any trouble shooting tips or does it sound purely technical?

Same thing happened to me the other day. For some unknown reason my wep500 seemed to just die with no apparent cause or reason. So I took the unit apart and tested the battery with a multi meter. It read 3.9V. So power was not the issue, I then put it back together and by chance, happened to continue pressing the power button for 5 seconds in hope I would see the LEDs flash but no dice. Then for no reason, I went to my phone and tried to pair and to my amazement it actually paired (meaning the device must of been on). So I then hit the big button on the wep500 and sure enough it calls the last number stored in my phone. It turns out (out of all things) the led itself went bad for some unknown reason. I suggest you try charging it (you won't see the red led), try turning it on (you won't see the blue led) and then try pairing from your phone. If you phone indicates it paired, then try calling the last number from your wep500. If it works, then you too have a bad LED (I have never seen an LED go bad before). Hope this helps.

Hi there,
I faced the same problem too. Sometimes the connection is bad. If the light blinks/ is unsteady, then it could be a connection problem. So try gently pressing the cradle (the power cord back side and front side where the red/blue light appears) together. If that's the issue you should see the red (charging) light on continuously.
Hope this helps!

Mint Plus Turbo Charging Cradle won't function properly


Cradle and contacts are fine. Cradle circuit is nothing but a reed relay and few wires, relay closes on proximity to robot's body, therefore no voltage on contacts before robot is close to cradle.
There is a thermistor inside of battery, and mine was bad. I removed it and now I am charging the battery from my bench power supply at about 220 ma current, overnight, and it works. Probably the solution is to get a new replacement battery, but the one with the thermistor inside (OEM), easily recognized by the third wire, and all should be fine, assuming that nothing else is wrong with charging circuit or power adapter (12v/1A)
Hope this will give you some ideas of where to poke.
Once successful, please post your solution.

It sounds like you have a bad battery charger, but it could also be slightly corroded battery contacts. Make sure the contacts on the battery and inside the computer are clean (you can use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). You will have to measure or have someone measure the output of the charger, to make sure it's putting out a good charging voltage. You can use a voltmeter to do that.
If you can run it by Best Buy, they can check to see if the charger is good. There's also a possibility that the battery has gone bad, and in that case, they may not hold a charge.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Won't turn on


The device may just be locked up and needs to be reset so that it can start up normally. To do a reset on the device, make sure the unit is plugged in to the charging cable/cradle and connected to power. Next press and hold the Mode + Reset buttons at the same time for approximately 10 seconds. After releasing the Mode + Reset buttons, attempt to power the device on normally.

Does not hold a charge. I have tried charging it for 2 days and when I unplug it and check the battery it says zero charge and shuts off!


if you see the amber light on the charging cradle then your battery no longer holds a charge. if you don't see the amber light then your pda is not charging when in the cradle. most likely it's a battery problem. good luck.
