Question about Motorola Mobility S9 Headphones

S9 headset I can not power on my headset. The only thing it does is blinks at me twice in a green light when I connect it to the charger and it blinks once in green when I take it off the charger. I have no idea whats going on. Motorola didn't even know what it meant.

I just hooked it up with a usb sync cable to my computer. It was installed and ready to use and the charging light came on. Seems like it is charging as the led went from red to yellow, and it does turn on now. However, it still does not work with the usb cable plugged into a wall charger. If this solution works for others having the same issue kindly post your results.

Plug it in to the computer and let the computer install the drivers. After the driver installs wait a few seconds and it should turn red. What Motorola has done it one of the pins in the usb cable needs to be grounded. Unlike most usb devices that use 2 wires a positive and negative voltage, motorola chargers use 3 wires or more. A computer or motorala specific charger provide this input and all other charges fail.

Try using a different charge. The unit is sensitive to power levels. Think it cuts off the charging circuit if the current is too high or too lowl.

My headphones will not charger


hold the power button and the volume up/or down cant reall remember which one exactly, hold both down simultaneously while plugging the headset into the power supply to charge. I find it easier to already have the cable in the headset connected. you should see a flash of different colored lights on the led then it should go to red.

Why does my Motorola S9-HD bluetooth only plays from left side when listening to my iphone 4g?


I just had the same issue. I charge my headset every day so I came to the conclusion that the short was due to a small piece of metal shorting out a connector in the chargeing port of the headset. I fixed it by first opening the charging cover and holding the headset by the ears in one hand. I then lightly tapped the opening against my other hand to loosen the metal shard. After doing this a few times, the sound came back. I then used a can of compressed air to finally flush out the intrusive shard. I didn't see how large it was but now my S9-HD headphones work! I'll check the connections on my 2 chargers to see if they have any evidence of breakage because I did notice when I plug in the set, I have to jiggle the connector a little recently.

Recently i have purchased Motorola S9 blutooth head set. Kindly let me know what type of motorolla charger to be used 1.5amp or 2 amp since there are 2 chargers available. And also while charging, within...


Bluetooth headsets, like many portable devices can be charged on a USB port on a computer, which supply less than 1A, so either charger would be suitable.
Looking at the manual, a full charge should take two hours, so half an hour seems a little quick.
Perhaps it was part charged?
You could see if you can listen to music for six hours on a charge, and if so how long it takes to charge then.
The manual can be found here.S9 user guide - Motorola

It is frozen with the green light on


try plugging in the charger to the headset, unplug the charger from the AC. If the light goes out see if the headset will connect.

Motorola s9 headset not charging


I had the same problem but instead of a red light it would flash green twice and stay off. I could not find the original charger and another plug in charger would not work. I plugged it into my computer with a usb cable and after several seconds it started charging.

How do I reset s9....the green light stays on constantly and I cannot connect at all.


If you guys haven't found a solution, you might want to try this out. Have your S9 charger hooked up to the unit and plug the charger into a surge protector. Flick the main switch of the surge protector on and off a few times and it should turn off the unit. Then turn on and pair if need to and it should be fine. Hope that works for ya!

Motorola S9 headset won't charge batteries


This might work if you aren't using the ORIGINAL charger. I had this problem when my cat chewed through the original Motorola charger. I figured my Blackberry charger would work fine, but it didn't. I then discovered that my Blackberry charger was 700mAH and the broken charger was only 550mAH. When I found another charger with the proper power it charged. I also found that it worked when plugging it into my computer with a standard mini USB. I hope this helps.

Can't get my computer to discover my s9 headphones. There are no other BT devices connected. The blue light is on...


What bluetooth adapter are you using on your computer? Get the manual for the S9 from the Motorola web site: it will tell you that the blue light is related to mono voice/microphone, and flashing green is all about stereo musioc, no microphone. 
So what are you trying to do with your S9?
On your computer it can be hands-free, or a stereo headset. It has two personalities, and you should see the two modes in your bluetooth configuration screen on the PC.
From what I see in the Motorola manual, if you click the right ear button for "Play/pause" it is supposed to kick the headset into A2DP stereo playback.

Cannot get S9 to connect to phone or computer


From Falvey86: Hold the headset start button for about 10 to 20 seconds, the lights will start flashing red and blue, then the search for Bluetooth devices from phone and it will appear as: S9. press "connect", a window will appear, place the password "0000", that should do the trick!!!!

Motorola S9 headset plays music in one ear


I had the same problem with a Samsung phone. There are two ways of fixing this; First, you can remove the S9 profile from your phone's bluetooth list, and then add it again, going through pairing and entering 0000 on your phone when asked for the code.
Alternatively, you might try pressing the "play" button on the right earpiece on the Motorola S9. This is supposed to kick it into the A2DP stereo mode for music listening.
Good luck.
And get a copy of the manual from the Motorola web site at http://direct.motorola.com/ens/s9/Headset_Home.asp I found this very handy for checking what the little flashing lights mean. When you get stereo reception, the little LED in the middle of the headset flashes green, not the usual blue and red and purple for voice calls. 
In case you didn't know, as a phone headset, with the microphone activated, you only get sound in your left ear, and the light flashes blue. For music, you get both ears, and it flashes green. So if it ain't green, you are in mono mode.
