Question about Motorola Mobility HS820 Consumer Headset

1 Answer

Light stays on

The light stays on all the time until the battery dies. I can not make or receive calls with it. Like it is not on. I plug it in and the light stays on and when I unplug it it flashes off for a second and then turns back on. Normally when I plugged it in, the light would come on and stay on until it was fully charged then the light would shut off. It would flash intermitently while in use. But nothing happens when I push the button to turn it off/on. Is there something I can do? Is it beyond help? I bought it used, so I don't want to spend any money to fix it.

Plantronics audio 995H wireless headset not charging when plugged into computer. It does not show a red light for charging. When turned on it stays blue for several seconds then flickers red for 2 or

38cafd7a-6060-4717-bc4f-b4db91cc266a.jpgI recently fixed my 955 headphones... it's probably not going to be attempted by most folks, but it saved a great set of headphones from being tossed and replaced.

Basically you need to remove the right side padding and take out the 3 screws. This gets you access to the battery. The battery is a standard 3.6V lithium battery. Pretty much the same that is in most cell phones and many small toys. You can simply replace the battery with something like:

Or... here's what I did... add a lithium USB charger to the battery.
Now, if the battery dies I can plug it into USB and the phone will work while it charges.

I think I am having the same issue:
When you open the H730 up do you hear beeping noise instead of a womens voice. Also does it stay on until you open it for a second time.

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on

Indicator Lights:

2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when

6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:

indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How do i set my my motorola h350 into discoverable mode

Plug the Motorola charger into the end of
the headset.
The blue indicator light turns on when the
battery is charging. It may take up to 1
minute for the light to turn on. When the
headset's battery is fully charged (about 2
hours), the blue indicator light turns off.
With the headset power off, press and hold
the Call button for 6 to 10 seconds until the
blue indicator light turns on and remains
steadily lit.
Note: The blue light will flash as you press and hold the Call
button. Continue holding down the Call button until the blue
light is steadily lit.
Note: If you let go of the Call button before the blue light is
on and steady, ensure that your headset is off before trying

My Insignia NS-BTHDP headphones don't have a red charge light anymore. The first charge out of the pack had the red light on. But now the red light doesn't come on anymore. I wonder if it is really...

The LED may have just gone bad. Keep using it untill the battery dies, then try charging it and use it again. If it works as it should it means the LED died and there is nothing to worry about, if not you may need to replace the battery.

PL-CS55 headset lifts receiver but only get buzzing sound in

Try a system reset:
1. Lift the headset off of the charging cradle (the base).  Make sure the headset is turned off.  The green light on the base won't be on if the headset is turned off. 2. Hold down the call answer button on the headset at the same time as mute button.  The mute button is found on the little black wheel on the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight in. 3. Hold both buttons until you see a green light on the headset flash.  It will be right below your thumb.  Hold both buttons until the green light flashes for a series of 2 flashes.  Then let go of both buttons. 4. Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back off and try again. 5. If this doesn't work repeat the process once more or try a resubscription.
Resubscription procedure:
1. Put the headset back onto the charging cradle.  Make sure the red light on the base is on and the yellow light is flashing. 2. On the back of the base there are two buttons for the microphone adjustment that can be pressed down.  Press both of those down until the red light and yellow light on the front of the base start flashing. 3. While the headset is still on the charging cradle press and hold the mute button until the red light on the base goes solid, and the yellow light stays flashing. 4. Unplug the power to the base and then plug it back in. 5. Wait 20 seconds and try.

Green light stays on....headset not turning on

I have had no trouble with mine (3+ months of good use) until today. Same problem you had - green light won't go out, unit won't turn on. Jonsumer's solution got me to thinking, and this worked for me:

1. plug the charger into the wall.
2. plug the headset into the charger.
3. unplug the headset from the wall.

Plugging & unplugging the headset to charger multiple times had NO effect. It was only when I plugged it into the charger and unplugged the charger from the wall that the green light turned off and the headset began to work normally.

You can't program numbers vocally to you headset, you can only program vocally to your phone only if your phone has the voice dialing option. I have a H500 and can inform you of what I know. To turn on, hold button until blue light flashes once or twice, to turn off is the same thing. To pair your headset with your phone you have to hold down the call button until the light stays on then you use your phone to pair. After pairing the headset will flash quickly then discontinue. If you are using your headset and receive another call, you press the call button on the phone to answer the other line and to also release the call. The volume up and down buttons are found on the top and bottom of the headset, up and down is dependant on which ear you wear your headset. To mute, hold both the volume up and down buttons at the same time, this also unmutes the call. Hope this helps!

My motorola H700 keeps staying red when charging

Wait, how long have you waited for it to charge? It's supposed to stay red until over 80% charge, then switch to yellow. When it is fully charged, it goes to green. When you mean it stays red when plugged in, have you waited the 2 hours?
