Sarah-

The previous poster has a good point, If you have a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidkeick ID, swap batteries and see if they work.


THe sidekick 3 is notorious for the charging port going bad. It is tricky though, because the little orange light comes on but no power is actually getting to the battery.

In this situation, I recommend a external battery charger and a spare battery.

Check out the link below for those.

Make sure it's switched off when you charge it.Try to charge it for at least 12 hours. If still no success, try with a different charger, or through the USB cord. If still no success, probably a bad battery.

Try a different USB port. Leave it on for several hours. They sometimes say 12 hours for the first charge. If it still doesn't charge it is defective. Return it.

How do we complete a basic set up for Plantronic CS70 VT head piece?


Plug in powerpack to the base unit.
Unplug the handset with the curly cord from the phone and place both aside.
A short cord connects between the Handset socket on the PHONE and the PHONE socket on the BASE UNIT.(socket is near the power socket)
the HANDSET and curly cord plugs into the socket near the front of the base unit- it's the one that's extreemly hard to plug in!
Charge for 12 hours before use
Call someone and get them to stay on the phone while you turn the rotary knob (may need a screwdriver) on the side- keep turning it until you can hear each other
look for orange light as you hang it up to indicate that it's chaging

Done!
Good Luck!

With power cord plugged in and without power cord plugged in the pc will not turn on


remove the battery, plug-in power cord then power on. your battery may be completely drain and your power adapter can't give enough supply to power up your laptop and charge the battery at same time. if doing so power on your laptop, charge your battery for about 12 hours without turning the power of your laptop

Just a suggestion, but if you leave your bluetooth runnung it wears out the battery faster, so you could try turning the bluetooth off when you dont need it to see if that makes a difference. It does on most phones.

Stand by time is about 12 hours


Couple possibilities:

1. Old battery: After a couple years of use, the battery simply can't hold a charge as well as it used to. If you are using an old battery, try getting a replacement.

2. Replaced battery with a NON-Brand name: If you replace the battery with a lesser expensive pack from china, they will typically use an inferior set of cells. Use only the name brand batteries for best performance.

3. You're in a location where you cannot pick up a DIGITAL signal. If you are roaming or unable to pick up a digital signal, the cell phone will constantly be searching for a tower wasting precious energy. For best standby times, make sure you are receiving a digital signal.

4. Battery charger malfunction: If you're accustomed to charging your battery with a wall charger, try charging it from your cigarette lighter in your car or with a different charger. If it works longer after doing this, drain the battery and charge again the way you usually do. If you're back down to only 12 hour stand-by, the usual charger may be malfunctioning.

5. Make sure your backlight is not on all the time. If your phone has a setting to keep the backlight on, turn it off.

Good Luck.

"searching" message even when handset on the base


Found the following in AT&Ts FAQs for your phone, I'll leave only what might be relevant: # Charge the handset for 12 hours. After the first charge, the battery will quick charge in only 8 hours. Re-cradle the handset nightly for recharging. The battery will not overcharge. # Connect telephone line from base to unit to modular telephone jack. If cord is already plugged in, unplug and reconnect at both ends. Also, you may want to try another cord from a working telephone. See the owner's manual under "Connecting to Phone Line." (you can get the manual here on the product page in case you lost it) # Try a working phone at the jack. If another phone has the same problem in that jack, the phone jack is defective. Good luck, hope you work it out
