    exact same problem

    We have the very same problem

  • Anonymous Jan 04, 2009

    Same here, except we have an older Ipod Touch that works fine with headset.
    We can't get an updated Ipod Touch (with external speaker) to work with the headset.
    What gives?

    I have same problem with S9 HD. Pairs with Ipod Touch but will not shut off external speaker on Ipod or come through S9

    I have the same problem w/ motorola D650 BT dongle & iPod Touch

    * When connected to iPod Touch 2G, S9 pairs with with D650; right side headset buttons for advance, reverse, play & pause control iPod playback, but sound only comes from external speaker - all attempts to remedy by restart, reboot, and re-pairing have proved unsuccessful.

    * Same S9/D650 pair works fine with iPod Nano 4G and iPod photo.

    * I also have a Sony TMR-BR81P BT dongle. When paired with S9, it works fine with iPod Touch 2G, iPod Nano 4G, and iPod photo.

    * Problem appears to be with the D650 BT dongle and the way it works with the iPod Touch 2G.

    * Search of net revealed many users with same problem when using D650 and iPod Touch 2G. Did not see any fixes, although some users reported fixes for similar problems with iPhone. iPod Touch 1G users reported S9/D650 worked fine.

    * Don't know if software update would fix this, but think that motorola (who advertises D650 works with any iPod with 30 pin dock), should work with Apple to develop SW update or other solution to resolve. User level efforts appear unsuccessful. Motorola, if you're listening, please pursue this or let us know that the problem can't be fixed, so folks can just go out and buy the Sony BT dongle for iPod instead, it does not suffer from the same probelms.

    Package said it works, manufacturer's website says it does not!

    From Motorola's website:

    1Motorola's D650 Bluetooth Adaptor for iPod is developed to work with the iPod Mini, iPod Nano and selected models of the iPod Classic. It is NOT compatible with selected ranges like the iPod Touch, iPod Shuffle and iPhone. For a complete list of compatible iPod models, please refer to your local Motorola dealer/ distributor for more information.

I just bought the S9 with the D650 adopter with the same, very frustrating problem problem.
I contacted Motorola directly (1-800-331-6456), and after being redirected a couple times and asking a bunch of questions they told me the following:

Yes, there is a compatablility issue with the Ipod Touch and the D650. So no, we aren't all crazy. The new D650's now have a software upgrade to correct this problem. They were nice of enough to offer sending me a new one with no charge. The only thing I have to do is return my old one (and they took my credit card information to make sure I do return it.) They said it should be here within the week, so now I just gotta wait and see.

So my advice, give them a call and do the same.

I have the ipod touch and just bought the D650 and it works! Try turning off the ipod touch, put in the D650 and turn on your S9. Now if only I could get this to work on my iPhone.

Trying to connect motorola s9hd to the laptop

assuming you have bluetooth installed on your laptop,
1) you have to disable the bluetooth pairing of your s9 with another device that you may have paired with it earlier - like a mobile phone. disconnect previously paired devices first.
2) turn on the bluetooth feature on your pc and ask it to "search" for devices. assuming your s9 is on standby, your pc should be able to "locate" and pair with it assuming the s9 is within an arms length distance from the computer.
3) make sure that the s9 is completely charged to eliminate that power issues as well

I have an IPOD touch. I just bought d650 motorola bluetooth adapter. I also purchased insignia bluetooth headset. I can change tracks but the sound comes out of the ipod but not the headset

Unfortunately not all bluetooth headsets are compatible with the Ipod Touch. You should go the Apple's Website and see if that have a list of what bluetooth devices will work for them

Pairing Motorola D650 to Motorola S9 with ipod nano or touch

It does work with the itouch. Try turning off the ipod completely. Turn it on again, then plug in the D650 and then your S9. Enjoy!

Cannot increase volume on my Motorola S 9 stereo headset.

The problem is that the unit is not immune to sweat as Motorola claims it is. Mine did the same thing with trying to lower the volume. You might try to dry it out good with a hair dryer (but don't get it too hot). That might help for a while, but eventually it will short out again and you won't be able to fix it. Sony just came out with a unit that is similar and I am going to dump the Motorola for the Sony to see if it works better.
