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.

Orange light flashing, no chargine


A replacement battery must be the EXACT same power spec as the original in DC volts and Milliamps, or you could damage the Mobo components. Some aftermarket batteries do not work well. The connections may be different.

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.

Samsung R480 Will not charge or turn on but indicator lights flash or stay on.


Swap out the ram one at a time testing to see if you can power up, making sure there is one in the memory slot at all times, if this works the piece in your hand is defective, no difference! the motherboard has major issues.

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.

Inspiron 6000 flashing orange light for three batteries. I took apart two, made one using three groups of three cells that were fully charged and rebuilt another with brand new cells, and both get the...


The flashing orange LED is a Battery Critically Low indication.
If the Windows Battery Meter and the BIOS do not show the batteries charging then there may circuit problem in your battery.
If you can, try battery in another system, if you can't, I'd try a new battery before doing any hardware changes to the system

BATTERY LIGHT FLASHES ORANGE


hi,
if you have tried both batteries with the same laptop and they are giving you the same error code, then it could very well be a motherboard problem, both the batteries cannot be bad, what you can do is try these batteries on some other compatible laptop model to check if they work fine there. Also try swapping the AC adapter as in both case you might be using the same Ac adapter, try using some other good known AC adapter as well.

Further queries are welcome
If you find my solution helpfull please do rate me

Canon BJC 6000 Beeps and Power Light Flashes Orange


The 6 beeps along with the orange light stands for "Re-install BJ cartridge or replace it". You might have already fixed the problem by replacing the cartridge, and you're still stuck with the error indication. Waste Error Reset 1: Power off printer 2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once. 3: Hold POWER and release RESUME 4: Press RESUME twice 5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange. 6: Press Power to set data If it still doesn't go away, try cleaning the contacts the cartridge makes with the printhead. Dip the carts contacts(dipping only the contact area) in shallow hot water for a minute, then wipe dry with a cloth that doesn't shed fiber. Also clean the contacts on the printhead using a damp cloth, maybe also some alcohol. If it still doesn't go away you have to think of replacing the printhead, or chucking it. Good luck
