Question about Nokia BNIB NOKIA 3500 Classic Unlocked/Sim Free BLACK/RED UK Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Headset is not recognised by Nokia 3500

My phone, a Nokia 3500, does not give any indication when I connect my headset to it. Thus, when I play music, it is played through the loudspeaker and even in the music player, the option to hear through the headset (which only appears when the headset is connected) is not there. Naturally I am a bit worried since I bought the phone 3 months ago.

I have a guess that once or twice when I put the charger in the socket first and then connected it to my phone, by mistake I put it in the headset port. But as soon as I saw it was at the wrong port, I put it in the right place and the phone began charging. My fear is that due to the possibility the headset port came in contact with electricity that my headphones do not work.

Lastly, is there any other place in my phone where I can do something about headset settings, other than going to
Menu-> Settings -> Enhancements-> Headset?

I would like to get some advice on what to do. Do I have to buy a new headset or will the current one get back to normal if I do something?

    But how did it break? And by headset connector, do you mean the port of the phone or the headset?

Unable to listen music in Nokia BH 108


Hi! The Nokia BH 108 headset does not have the A2DP function (advanced audio distribution profile). However, if you are using NOKIA (symbian) non-windows phone, you can play music since the phone bypass the said restriction. You may want to try other bluetooth headsets that has A2DP function so you can enjoy the musics from your headset.
Thanks.

Headphone symbol on normal mode


I have a similar problem on my phone, which is that when I insert my headset, it does not recognise it. And thus the music is played through the loudspeaker. And if it is recognised (luckily), then after I take it out, I see that the headset sign is still there. The only solution I have had is to turn the phone off and switch it on again. The sign should go away by then.
OR:this is the problem of jack where from you insert the headset pin,
change the jack your problem issolved.

N95 - not recognising bluetooth headset


http://darlamack.blogs.com/NokiaN95usermanualUS.pdf

Here is the manual for your phone. Page 28 describes how to get your phone ready for your bluetooth headset.

But as for your headset, it depends on the individual headset. If you had a plantronics headset, you would go to their site, http://plantronics.com/ , click their support section, and then find your headset and grab the manual off the site for it.

Usually for headsets, it involves holding the power button on for so long, then entering your default password for the headset(usually 1111) into your phone.

Between your phones manual, and the headset one, you should be good to go. :)

BT 1.2, Version playing music through a BT headset while music is playing on laptops.
and again we need to find out what BT software version is on the phone and if sony erricsson came out with better BT software for your needs.

hope this little information helps.
