Question about Sony MDR-RF970RK Headphones

Open Question

The headset seems to be charging on the base, however, when I put it on my head the green light doesn't come on.

I'm not sure how to hook it up to a Panasonic Viera Flat Screen TV. The headsets do no "auto on" when I put them on my head so I can't even swap wiring connections until I get sound!

SOURCE: i accidentally cut the wire on my sony mdr-D777 headset. how do i repair?

If you matched all the wire up in their original configuration then there is not much else to be done.you could try taping them individually so that none of the wires are touching. At this point I would invest in a new one, Perhaps blueooth ; )

SOURCE: surround sound problems

you need an optical cable which it's sort of mentioned in the manual, but because of the multitude of possible ways to connect the TV to the sound surround, I did not figure out either.
I got my optical cable at BestBuy for about $45.00

Savi Office WO100 won't charge. The green light on the base is blinking but my computer says there is 0% percent charge.


There are two possible solutions to this issue:

1. The headset needs to be reset.
2. The headset is defective and should be replaced.

To reset the headset, use a straightened paperclip to push the reset button on the inside of the headset, below the earhook. See the pic:

You may need to hold the reset button for a few seconds. Then replace the headset into the cradle. You should see normal behavior again.

If this doesn't work. you will need to replace the headset.

Unplug the unit, then take the ear piece and slide the battery off .... When you have the battery detached from the ear piece, wipe off the metal prongs, leave it off for a few minutes, then put back together. Make sure you plug the unit back in. It will take a couple hours for the unit to be charged. That should take care of the issue.

Is it compatible with an IPCC nortel network phone?


I am personally using a Plantronics CS60 wireless headset with a Meridian Nortel M2006 Phone and it works just fine.

Here is how you can setup the Plantronics CS60 wireless headset.

NOTE: Before setting up the system make sure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the "_" position and NOT the "=" position.

The headset and the base unit are supplied subscribed to each other. However, if you wish to use a replacement headset with the base unit (or if you lose your connection to the base unit), then you must re-subscribe as follows:

1. Return the headset to the charging base.

2. Press and hold both the + and - buttons on the back of the charging base until the red light on the front of the base starts to flash.

3. Let go of both buttons. The red light should continue to flash.

4. Press the mute switch (black wheel on the top of the headset) straight down until a green light appears on the headset, then let go of the wheel, and the light should remain on the headset.

5. Resubscription is finished when the red light on the base is fully illuminated and the green light on the headset disappears.

6. Remove the headset from the charging base lift telephone handset/press headset button if not using a handset lifter. The headset and base should now be connected.

Plantronics CS55 requires lifting handset on phone


Please note that your hand receiver has to be off the hook when using the headset.

This is correct, additionally you can use a handset lifter accessory, such as the HL1 or HL10.

Subscribing Headset to Base:

The headset and the base unit are supplied subscribed to each other. However, if you wish to use a replacement headset with the base unit (or if you lose your connection to the base unit), then you must re-subscribe as follows:

1. Return the headset to the charging base.

2. Press and hold both the + and - buttons on the back of the charging base until the red light on the front of the base starts to flash.

3. Let go of both buttons. The red light should continue to flash.

4. Press the mute switch (black wheel on the top of the headset) straight down until a green light appears on the headset, then let go of the wheel, and the light should remain on the headset.

5. Resubscription is finished when the red light on the base is fully illuminated and the green light on the headset disappears.

6. Remove the headset from the charging base lift telephone handset/press headset button if not using a handset lifter. The headset and base should now be connected.

7. If this procedure does not resolve your issue to try a system reset.

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.

All of a sudden my CS 55 with plantronics stopped working. It shows that its on but the headpiece isnt charing and also doesnt work. Any ideas why?


If the Plantronics CS55 wireless headset shows that it is on, you have to make sure of the following things.

a. the green LED on the base turns on when you turn the call switch on from the headset.
b. the small green LED on the side of the headset is blinking.
c. the telephone headset is lifted from the cradle.
d. if the headset is not charging and the Amber light on the base does not blink when you place wireless headset on it; trying placing the headset more firmly.
e. If the headset is not charging and the Amber light on the base does not blink even after placing the wireless headset firmly on the charging cradle, you may need to change the battery.

Alternately you can try resetting the Plantronics CS55 wireless headset.

Reset Plantronics CS50, CS60 or CS55 Wireless Headset

If you have problems with the sound or connection of your Plantronics CS50, CS60 or CS55 wireless phone headset, you may want to try to hard reset it using the following steps:

Note: Ensure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the - position and NOT the = position.

1. Press both the call control button and the listening volume/mute button for 5 seconds. When the indicator light blinks release both buttons.

2. Press the call control button again. The talk indicator light will again blink to indicate the headset is back to normal.

3. Disconnect the AC charger from the AC charging jack for 5 seconds.

4. Reconnect the AC charger.

Now give the Plantronics headset a try.

Trying to switch out my base unit on the 9120 I am trying to trouble shoot a loud screeching sound that happens when I hang the phone up cant get my head set to switch to the new base


The loud screeching is probably due to the headset mic volume being too loud, or the campatability setting on the base station is in the wrong position for your phone.
To register a new earpiece to a base station, simply put the headpiece on the charging dock and leave it there while you disconnect the power, wait about 20 seconds and then reconnect the power. All the lights on the base should flash a couple of times and then the green charging light will start fashing as normal. The headset should then be registered.
