Question about Plantronics CS50 Wireless Headset

Open Question

Head set beeps 3 times, can't connect

My headset beeps three times. I've replaced the battery with a new one (that works in a different headset.)

The orange light is flashing to indicate that the battery is charging but it still doesn't work after more than a day of charging.

The red light never illuminates.

Try a system reset:
1.  Lift the headset off of the charging cradle, but make sure the headset is turned off.  It will be off if the green light on the front of the base is not lit.  If it's not, push the call answer button once to turn it off.
2.  Push the call answer button and the mute button at the same time and hold them down.  The mute button is the black little wheel at the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight down and hold it while holding the call answer button.  A green light on the headset will flash for 2 series of flashes.  Wait until the end of the second series then let go of both buttons.
3.  Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back up and try to use it.  If this doesn't work, repeat one more time and then disconnect the power from the base and plug it back in.

Make sure the headpiece is charged. Turn the headpiece off by pressing the little black button on top of the earpiece and holding for about 5 seconds. Turn the earpiece back on again the same way. You should have a slow flashing blue light on the mic boom. The base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.
If this doesn't work you may need to manually pair the earpiece to the base by pressing and holding the Listen Volume Adjust + Button and headset Call Control Button on the earpiece until the light on the mic boom flashes red and blue repeatedly. As above, the base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.

SOURCE: Turn on head set light flashes blue then blinks red

I found a guide that tells you what the different colors and lengths of flashes mean. Have a look for yourself. It seems like you have a low battery by how you describe it. You'll be Bluetoothing again in no time! ;-)http://plantronics.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/plantronics.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1169&p_created=1047671477&p_sid=C4BU4zzj&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NjUsNjUmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PSZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX25sJnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9NTIw&p_li=&p_topview=1

Move the call control button up or down, the indicator light will flash blue if it's paired or blue and red. If it flashes blue and red you need to pair phone with the headset. the passkey is 0000.

SOURCE: my headset will not hold a charge CS70VT

The only thing is to check the voltage output by the charger... usually 5 volts. The lights MAY blink even if voltlage is too low.

If it is OK, then battery in the headset has failed. Have the battery replaced or DIY if not under warranty.

The usual cause of this is to continue using batteries under load when one of the cells is totally depleted.

The solution for paring the explorer 240 is found in the bottom of the product page for the embedded link on the User Guide Link. I have also provided the instructions below. I hope this helps

How to Pair Your Phone With Your Headset for the First Time

1 Turn on the Bluetooth feature on your phone.
For most phones, select Settings/Tools > Connections >
Bluetooth > On. See your phone’s user guide for more information.
2 Turn the headset on.
Turn on your headset by sliding the Power Switch toward the microphone. Wait until the indicator light flashes red then blue.
If you don’t see the red then blue flashes, turn the headset off, then turn it on again. Press and hold the Call Control button until you see the red then blue flashes that indicate pairing mode status.
3 Set your Bluetooth phone to ‘discover’ to locate the headset.
This usually involves going to ‘setup’, ‘connect’ or ‘Bluetooth’ menu on your phone and selecting the option to ‘discover’ or ‘add a device’.
4 Once available headsets are listed, select your headset (for example 2XXPlantronics or 3XXPlantronics). If prompted for a passkey, enter 0000.
When pairing is successful, the indicator on your headset flashes blue. Your phone will also confirm when pairing is complete.

Headlight blue light is flashing and won't do anything else


If you hold down the power button (and keep holding!) while wearing the headphones, you will hear three beeps (keep holding! If you lift your finger, you have wait a moment to start over) followed after a moment by two beeps. If you do this while the headset is NOT on, it will enter the "discoverable" mode and the lights should flash red/blue red/blue. If you do this while the headset is on, the second set of beeps sounds a little different, and those tones mean the headset is turning off.

The "manual" (a single sheet of paper) for this device is a joke, and website technical support is nonexistent.

When I first purchased mine, despite the poor instructions, I was satisfied, due to the low price. But I've only had the device for less than a month, and I've only used it three times, and suddenly I can't get it to pair with my laptop or my phone, though it had worked find a couple of weeks ago, last time I used it.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, I guess. Disappointing.

Blue parrot lights blue and red keep flashing and there aren't any beeping noises


If your headset is 6 or more months old, it could be the rechargeable battery is due for replacement. The power supply or battery is the one thing that can cause all sorts of odd symptoms. I read your post and put a known bad battery into one of my 3 Blueparrott B250-xt headsets and did just as you described. If you would like to order a new battery for this headset, email me at ebhammonds@gmail.com. They are $20 and shipping is free.

My Plantronics Blue tooth earpiece gives a constant "three beep" sound. I can hear the other person on the phone but the constant beeps at the same time. The beeps happen also when the phone is...


The three beeps usually indicate low talk time. If you have tried turning off and on your headset and still have the annoying beeps, then there is a problem with the device. You'll need to contact your retailer or Plantronics (800-544-4660 x5538) for warranty replacement. If it's out of warranty, check out our website Headsets Direct for the latest in Bluetooth headsets.

While the headset works frequently, it will suddenly stop. Nothing I do will allow it to connect again. I hear nothing through the headset after the initial beep that indicates headset mode was enabled. ...


It sounds like the battery is no longer holding a good charge. There is no replacement battery for this headset. If you are using the original 510 headset you can replace it or pair a different bluetooth headset up to the 500A base. Just keep in mind if you decide on a different style of headset you will not be able to charge it in your base. I have included the link for the 510 replacement headset below.

Have new headset, why is the base unit keep beeping at me


Here is an explanation of the beeps you are hearing:

• One beep every 10 seconds is caused by a low battery
warning. Recharge battery by returning it to the base charge
cradle for one to three hours until charge light stays lit or
quits blinking.
• Two beeps is an out of range warning. Move closer to the base.
• Three rapid beeps every 30 seconds indicates your mute is
on. Press the mute button once to turn mute off.
• When an optional lifter is connected, three repetitive beeps
indicate a call is coming into the headset. Press the call
control button on the headset to answer the call.
