Question about Motorola Mobility HS850 Consumer Headset

1 Answer

Nothing's happening! Just beeping intermittently...

When I put my headset on, I'm not getting the little "powering up" scaling tone, just nothing and it's not working. So I tapped the button and all I get is a strange, intermittent beep and still nothing. It's showing as charged. D'you guys think it needs a new battery or something? Should I just throw it out the window in a rage? Sorry about the wording - technically challenged...:(

Re: Nothing's happening! Just beeping intermittently...

Hi No let it sit for a few hours and then place it into the charger overnight this should re condition the battery. Then try to repair the headset with your phone. Be sure to set up a trusted pair thus alleviating the disconnecting of the pair. Any further questions email me or repost. (E) Have a Great Day !!

Your headset powers on muted and inactive by default. After it powers on, hit the power button once,dont hold it, just press it. you'll hear 2 beeps then a higher tone. Your headset is now active.

No sound from RS130 headphones

I'm having the same problem with the RS140. Only a few weeks old, and no sound at all coming out (not even the beeps). Have replaced batteries and tried a different audio source. Base station lights are on and indicating it is receiving an audio signal, but nothing is going go the headphones.

Headset has static

Perform a reset on the headset.  Hold down the mute button (the dial on the back of the headset needs to be pushed straight in), and at the same time hold down the call answer button until you see the green light on the headset blink a few times.  Release both the mute button and the call answer button.  See if it works now.  If it doesn't, try a re-subscription (should be available in the manual).

The earpiece will make 3 short beeps when a call is incoming. Also the phone will still ring if you are within distince to hear the ringer. Hope this helps! SM

Remote ring detection provides a low tone * triple beep in your wireless headset when you receive an incoming call. This feature requires a handset lifter accessory, such as the Plantronics HL1 or HL10. If you do have a handset lifter but do not hear the remote ring detection, please check the following:

  • Check the placement of the lifter. - Make sure the handset lifter positioned directly over the phone's speaker.

  • Try adjusting the phone's ringer volume. If the phone's ringer is too quiet, it may not trigger the ring detection built into the lifter. Try turning up the ringer volume of your phone.

  • Check the ring tone of the phone. - If your phone's ring tone provides short beeps or plays music, the lifter's microphone may not detect it. Try switching your ring tone to a traditional ring or long beep.

  • Does the phone have different rings? - For example internal calls vs external calls vs transferred calls. Does the phone ring the same for each type of these calls. If so try changing so all calls use the same tone.

  • Attach the optional "external ring detector" cable. This cable plugs into the lifter and provides a small, black microphone. It is included in the plastic bag of lifter accessories. Mount the microphone near your telephone's speaker. Click here for more details.

  • There are 2 versions of the Lifter accessory - HL10 and HL1. The HL1 is a larger older version of the liter with a more sensitive rind detector. Some phones will require the older version of the lifter.

  • Please view the On Line Compatibility Guide to see if the older version (HL1) will be required for your phone.

*Please note the volume of notification beep in the headset cannot be altered, it will always be a low tone triple beep .

Can't Turn on/Charge

I had the same problem when I purchased mine. There was nothing to do except return it for a replacement.
