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.

Why does the myzone headset we purchased not work, as the red light will not turn on?


Not sure how old this unit is but you need to check your battery connections for crud.

If the battery's have been leaking or the terminals are corroded it will not power up. I beleave that unit takes rechargeable batterys.

    Can't pair to iphone 3g


    Hi, the iPhone 3G definitely does work with bluetooth. In fact, I'm talking on a bluetooth headset with my iPhone 3G right now.

    You have to put both your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headsetand the iPhone in "pairing mode".

    On your iPhone, click the Menu button, tap the Settings icon, tap the General icon, and then tap the Bluetooth icon. Make sure that 'Bluetooth' is set to "ON" and not "OFF". As long as you have this screen up, your iPhone is in pairing mode.

    Turn your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset off and wait a few seconds. On your Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset, press and hold and Answer/End button for Five Seconds, until a solid blue light comes on, which places the device in Bluetooth discoverable mode.

    Now that both devices are 'discoverable', the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset will show up on that Bluetooth screen on your iPhone. Be patient as it might take a minute to appear. Tap on the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headsetin the list on your iPhone, and then it will ask you for a passkey. The passkey is "0000" (without the quotes). After you enter the passkey, the Southern Telecom Emerson Bluetooth Headset will show up on the list with the word "Paired" next to it.

    Now you're paired! Incoming calls will automatically be passed to your headset as long as your iPhone can find it nearby.

    Good luck.

    I have my backbeat 903 synced to my ps3 and phone how do i switch to my phone when i leave the house and back to the ps3 when i want to use it in gaming


    Multipoint is a new development in Bluetooth technology that allows your headset to be connected to two Bluetooth devices at the same time. When a call comes in, the Bluetooth headset knows which handset is ringing and will connect to the phone automatically. Multipoint can benefit most Bluetooth Headset users.

    Good luck from Headsets Direct!

    Motorola S805 headset worked fine with T60 laptop


    Solution I found with the same devices is to properly par the devices.

    Refer http://direct.motorola.com/ens/s805/QuickstartGuide.pdf

    It basically states :

    1.Ensure the headphones are turned off (L indicator light not blinking).
    2.Press and hold L button. After about 6 seconds, the L indicator light becomes steadily lit.
    3.Release the L button. The L indicator light remains steadily lit.

    If the L indicator light is flashing or not steadily lit, repeat steps 1 through 3

    Now on the T60:

    Search for Bluetooth Devices as you would normally.
    The T60 lists Bluetooth devices it finds.
    Select Motorola S805.
    Select OK or Yes to pair your headphones
    with your phone.
    Enter the passkey: 0000
    Select OK.
    When your headphones successfully pair
    with your phone, the L indicator light
    changes from steadily lit to rapidly flashing.

    That's it next time you start a audio program on T60 output will be sent to Motorola Headphones

    Hi, I purchased two units of logitech cordless


    Your friend should be able to use the headset if your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature. THe computer will send and receive the Bluetooth signals with one transmitter/receiver like your computer does and then connect to the wireless lan with a different transmitter/receiver system on a different frequency. Just make sure your friend's computer has Bluetooth feature turned on and then setup the headset by the "pairing" process.

    Connect trueblue bluetooth headset to Samsung Eternity cell phone


    I had the same poroblem. I turned the phone off and then restarted it. That worked for me. Try to make a phone call and see if you can hear it on the Bluetooth.

    Also... compliments of Best Buy Troubleshooting -

    Bluetooth Troubleshooting: Phones & Headsets

    Problem #1:
    Headset and phone are turned on, but you don't hear anything in the headset, i.e., there is no dial tone.
    Action #1: Make sure your phone is Bluetooth-capable. If it is not: A. Buy a new Bluetooth-capable phone. B. Purchase a Bluetooth adapter for your non-Bluetooth phone. The adapter will allow your phone to interact with a Bluetooth headset.

    Problem #2:
    It's a Bluetooth-capable phone and Bluetooth headset, both are turned on, but you still don't hear anything.
    Action #2: Make sure your phone, headset, and, if necessary, adapter are fully charged before attempting to synch the Bluetooth connection between the two devices - in many cases a blinking blue light will indicate the headset is charged.

    Problem #3:
    Everything is charged, but still not working.
    Action #3:Before two Bluetooth-enabled devices can communicate with each other, they need to be initially synched up to each other - also referred to as linking or pairing.
    A. Find "Communications" or "Connections" on your phone's menu screen and explore within to locate "New" or "Bluetooth."
    B. Push the main button on the headset until the light shines solid blue and is NOT blinking. C. Select Bluetooth on phone menu. Within Bluetooth you may need to select and highlight "Devices" or "Find Devices" (depending on where you are, there may be other Bluetooth devices available).
    D. While the headset light is solid blue, open the Bluetooth link (or Find Devices) on your phone's menu screen and scroll through until you locate the headset you wish to synch up to. Your phone will automatically begin searching for Bluetooth devices within 30 feet of itself.
    E. After a short period of time, your menu screen should say "connected" or "devices paired". Make sure you click or select the device name to finalize the connection. If you have successfully paired the two devices, you will hear a dial tone in the headset. Congratulations! You've joined the Bluetooth world.

    Note: After a couple of minutes showing solid blue, the light on the headset will start blinking; you want to pair up the phone and headset while the light is still unblinking. This is important. If the light starts blinking before you can complete the connection, you will need to turn the headset off and on and start over.
    Problem #4:
    You've followed all the instructions in this guide, and your Bluetooth connection is still not functioning properly.
    Action #4: Take out your manual and carefully reread the section on synching up Bluetooth devices. If you still can't get things properly connected, we suggest you call the manufacturer regarding this issue.
    Motorola: 1-877-MOTO-BLU for troubleshooting, or www.hellomoto.com
    Jabra: 1-800-327-2230 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST for technical support; or www.jabra.com

    I hope this helps.
