Re: When i put my headset to charge it stops charging...

If you are using the USB port on the computer to charge it, it may be an issue of your computer going into "Power Save" mode and shutting down the USB power. I found this by google searching "usb power save mode"... Possible Fix: 1. Click on "Start" and then right-click on "My Computer." 2. Click on "Properties" and then on the "Hardware" tab. 3. Half-way down on the right, click on "Device Manager." 4. Click the "plus" sign in front of "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." 5. Double-Click on the first "USB Root Hub" (not USB 2.0 Root Hub). 6. Click on the "Power Management" tab. 7. Uncheck the box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." 8. Click "OK" and repeat for all other "USB Root Hubs." 9. Finally, close all and go back to the desktop.

Plantronics audio 995H wireless headset not charging when plugged into computer. It does not show a red light for charging. When turned on it stays blue for several seconds then flickers red for 2 or

38cafd7a-6060-4717-bc4f-b4db91cc266a.jpgI recently fixed my 955 headphones... it's probably not going to be attempted by most folks, but it saved a great set of headphones from being tossed and replaced.

Basically you need to remove the right side padding and take out the 3 screws. This gets you access to the battery. The battery is a standard 3.6V lithium battery. Pretty much the same that is in most cell phones and many small toys. You can simply replace the battery with something like:

Or... here's what I did... add a lithium USB charger to the battery.
Now, if the battery dies I can plug it into USB and the phone will work while it charges.

It is charged when the red light goes out. Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button for one second and an audible will give you the battery charge level - high - medium - low.

My motorola n136 headset will not charge. This is my second headset with both doing the same thing. When pluged in to wall charger the blue light comes on but it is not charging. What am i doing wrong?

I dropped my 4-5 month old Motorola N136 bluetooth under my couch while activated. Took me a week to get it out, and now it will not take a charge. All I get is the red light blinking over and over when plugged into my charger. Any ideas?

My jabra BT160 won't charge

i had the same problem with mine. the problem is with the completely empty battery.
solution is to disassemble it and force charge the battery inside.
you have to cut any usb cable leaving the side which connects to pc and remove the insolation from red and black wires. connect them for few seconds to battery soldering points on jabra board (red to red, black to black, sometimes you have to scratch the solder a bit if it oxidized a bit). once you see the light you can start charging it normally.

Not working, not charging

Try to juggle the charging port, if it blinks again, then you have a broken charging cord

I Can`t switch my headset on, and it stops charging after 20 secs

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.

Cs55 connects but has no sound on headset

The compatibility setting, in almost 100% of the cases, should be set to "1".  You can find it on the side of the base, it's a little turn wheel that will turn if you stick your thumbnail in it and twist.  I have seen one instance on the Cisco IP phones that requires the compatibility setting to be on 5, so try that as well.
If you have a lifter installed, make sure that the short telephone cable that comes out of the back of the headset's base unit is plugged into the handset port of the telephone (where the handset coily cord is normally plugged into).  You would then plug the handset coily cord into the front of the headset base unit.  Make sure you have that configuration, and try again.
Finally you can try a re-set.  To do this you should lift the headset off of the charging base, make sure the green light on the top of the base is off (the headset is off), and then do the following: 1. Hold down the mute button and the call answer button at the same time. (The mute button is the black little wheel on the top of the headset itself.  If you use the tip of your finger to push that straight in, it will mute the headset) 2.  Keep holding both buttons down until the green light below your thumb on the headset flashes for 2 consecutive series. 3.  Let go.  Wait about 20 seconds then try answering.
If this doesn't work, try a re-subscription: 1. Place the headset back on the charging base. 2. The two microphone volume adjust buttons on the back of the BASE unit should be pressed together.  This will start the red light and the yellow light blinking on the front of the base unit. 3. Hold the mute button down while the headset is still on the charging base.  Hold it down until the red light stops blinking. 4. Disconnect the power to the base so that the red light and yellow light turns off. 5. Plug the power back in after about 5 seconds of it being disconnected and make sure the red light on the front of the charging base is now solid and the yellow light is flashing. 6.  Pick up the headset and try again.

PL-CS55 headset lifts receiver but only get buzzing sound in

Try a system reset:
1. Lift the headset off of the charging cradle (the base).  Make sure the headset is turned off.  The green light on the base won't be on if the headset is turned off. 2. Hold down the call answer button on the headset at the same time as mute button.  The mute button is found on the little black wheel on the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight in. 3. Hold both buttons until you see a green light on the headset flash.  It will be right below your thumb.  Hold both buttons until the green light flashes for a series of 2 flashes.  Then let go of both buttons. 4. Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back off and try again. 5. If this doesn't work repeat the process once more or try a resubscription.
Resubscription procedure:
1. Put the headset back onto the charging cradle.  Make sure the red light on the base is on and the yellow light is flashing. 2. On the back of the base there are two buttons for the microphone adjustment that can be pressed down.  Press both of those down until the red light and yellow light on the front of the base start flashing. 3. While the headset is still on the charging cradle press and hold the mute button until the red light on the base goes solid, and the yellow light stays flashing. 4. Unplug the power to the base and then plug it back in. 5. Wait 20 seconds and try.

New jabra A210 not charging

I had not used my A210 in a couple years, and when I needed it again now, I TOO GOT THIS SAME EXACT SYMPTOM: where it would light red (charging) only for 2 or 3 seconds, and then be off. Hours on the charger and no charging or difference. I tried plugging it in a few hundred times to see if it would "jump start" for the 3 seconds to add up, no luck. I WAS VERY GLAD to read MightyFrosty could change something inside and get it working. I followed his advice up to "removing the tiny circuitboard on the tiny battery and resoldering". Instead (got the case open with a razor blade, gently) I removed the amber tape that wraps the battery/circuitboard assembly and tried first "jumping" the red to the "+", nothing~ but then jumping the black to the "-" the RED LIGHT came on and STAYED ON! (but only while "jumped". Better yet after some 20 minutes of "jumpered" charging, the RED LIGHT STAYED ON even when I removed the tiny jumper~! (a tiny wire is all, bent to touch the black wire solder spot and the "-" battery lead). so IT APPEARS it CAN CHARGE PROPERLY on its own once the battery has a little juice in it! It is charging completely normally now (red light solid, no jumpers, and with no cuts or circuit removals!). I believe I can reassemble it all tomorrow and have a non-modified operational bluetooth Jabra! Thank you MightyFrosty and good luck to all!
