How to change battery in iogear headset gbmh201

    I stored my iogear bluetooth wireless headphone (GBMH201) and now when I tried to recharge it, it will not hold a full charge. When I start to use it with my cell phone, it works really good for about 5 minutes, and then shuts off. It seems like the battery will not hold a full charge - as they say it will hold one for about 6.5 hrs.

    I need to know how to get to the battery to change it, and what kind is it? It looks to me like it can not be done and it is now just trash?

HOW TO CHANGE BATTERY HEADSET H500


Why do you think you need to replace the battery? A common sign that your Motorola Bluetooth headset needs a new battery is when you repeatedly hear five quick high tones in successive, one-minute intervals. Another symptom of a low or dead battery is when you try to scroll to Power and your headset doesn't come on. The Motorola H500 headset has a long battery life, but the battery eventually will go bad. Unfortunately, the battery is integrated as part of the headset's circuitry and should not be replaced by its user. Motorola strongly advises against trying to change the battery. Attempting to replace the battery voids the headset's warranty. By sending the headset to Motorola for repair, you can have a new battery installed without the risk of damage to your equipment.
But you can try the following at your own risk:
Locate the battery door at the rear of the headset and open it.
Remove the old battery. Install a new battery to match the plus and minus illustrations on the battery compartment. Shut the battery door back in place.
Select "Menu" on your phone. Select "Settings."
Select "Connection," "Bluetooth Link," and "Setup."
Select "Power." Select "Change."
Select "On," and then press "Select."
Press the "Call" button and hold it down. Release it when the LED light blinks.

I have connected the headset Blue-tooth with my laptop there is a blue tooth connection but no sound (music).from my media player (windows) I can change the numbers but there is no music. Hetset DR-BT21G...


It seems your laptop Bluetooth could be 1.1 version and headphones are 2.1 it won't work. I would suggest wired headset or get a 2.1 the difference is 1.1 doesn't not allow high quality sound 2.1 does allow stereo sound. here is a sample IOGear USB 2.1 Bluetooth Micro Adapter GBU421

We lost power last night and my IOGear Miniview Ultra+ is asking for user name and password. I'm pretty sure I didn't change it from the factory setting. But, I don't know what it is. Can you...


Dear Gary, the IOGear MiniView does not have the ability to offer you any sort of user management so i would recommend checking if it is one of the machines it is attached to might be the item that is asking for the username and pass.

Can't access Ion Drive


You have to check also Disk Management while your HD is connected to the your computer.

First, if you can detect the HD in your Device Manager but not under the Disk Management, then the IOGEAR Tech Support is could be correct.

If that's the case, you need to contact IOGEAR and ask them to send you a USB Y-Cable. That Y-Cable is FREE. IOGEAR will just ask for your billing address, and they can send you one for free.

That Y-Cable has two type-A USB and one mini-B USB ports. The two type-A should be connected to the computer, and the other end to your HD. Having two USB connected to your computer, that should be enough for the HD to get power from the two USB ports.

If that did not help, I would suggest to connect your HD into different computer to see if you can detect it.

If you do detect it, back up all the files, reformat your HD, change the drive letter, and then retrieve all the files back.

Thank you and good luck!

Backbeat 903 headphones won't pair with Windows 7 64-bit laptop


I had the same problem as you although I was able to find a solution. If your bluetooth adapter on your computer doesn't support A2DP then you can purchase this adapter from IO Gear: http://www.iogear.com/product/GBU421/ or another adapter that supports this feature. Windows will try to install it as a generic bluetooth adapter (which wont allow you to pair the headset) but if you install the disk that comes with this, it will also install the additional drivers needed for the headset.
Walmart carries it for $20 at most stores or $13 online. I got mine at the store.

If you need help installing it let me know I can provide the steps I did.

Left ear of headphones volume low


Out of the box or before using it, you have to charge the headset for about 4hrs or until no light on the headset (red if it's charging). Then try using it again play around with the volume. If you encounter the same thing then you have to replace it at the store.

Will the Iogear GBMA211 Wireless Audio Transmitter (GBMA211) work with ANY bluetooth headset I have a Motorola S9???


No, it will not work with other headset like Motorola S9. The GBMA211 Audio transmitter is tested to work with the GBMH211 IOGEAR Bluetooth headset.

The GBMA211 was tried with the other Bluetooth headset but no success.

Iogear speaker problem


To isolate the problem, here are the things that you may do for the GBE201W7.

1. Disconnect/reconnect it from the phone or other Bluetooth device.

2. Make sure that it's fully charged.

3. Increase the volume while trying to make a test call.

4. Contact IOGEAR Tech Support if you will get the same problem after trying the first 3 steps. Meaning, this headset needs to get repaired.
