You need to hold down the call button before opening the mic. Once it turns purple immediatly open the mic. If you wait too long to open the mic after it turns purple it will turn blue or just go out.

Connection to my phone was intermittent. After finding this solution I confirmed that the pin switch was definitely the problem! Simply pressing on the hinge did not premanently fix my problem, however (disconnected from my phone when I let go), so I cut a thin strip of tape and put it on the pin-side of the boom. Problem solved! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

This site is awesome. It worked. Thanks

Thanks!! I was beginning to think it was broken

Thanks ButchJK - I tried almost every other thing - this was the one that did the trick for me...

Look very closely at the hinge on the boom. There is a very small pin-switch that glides in a groove when the boom is opened and closed. Sometimes "slop" will develop in the hinge and the pin-switch won't get pushed in enough to register that the boom is open. Light pressure applied by squeezing the hinge to push in the pin-switch should work. --For some reason pairing mode is much more picky than regular talk mode.

Wow, thanks I appreciate the help

Thanks 'Guest Oct 09 2007' for alerting me to the pin switch problem.

I bought a new H700 2 days ago and found that the H700 could not be turned off by closing the flip. I returned it 1 day ago and the dealer gave me a new replacement.

Same problem. After reading your post I found the pin switch and it is very loose in its mount. It looks like Motorola has quality control problems with the H700.

I will return it to the dealer and attempt to get it replaced again. I like the H700 but if the pin switch problem is endemic, perhaps I should look for a refund.

Disappointing, because in other respects this seems to be a fine headset.

I have a bluetooth blueant n15417 and cannot put in discovery mode


To put the device into pair mode, hold the green button down for 5 seconds, after 5 seconds while still holding the green button release the mic arm. The device should then be in pair mode, if not the pair list may have become filled. To clear that hold down the vol + button for 5 seconds and release the mic arm. If you don't get any loud sound, power off the unit and hold the red button for 5 seconds while releasing the arm. Eventually you will get a red/blue flash telling you it is in pair mode (or what you call discoverable mode, which technically is referring to the phone). At that point go to the bluetooth menu, search/scan for devices/add a new device and enter the pin code 0000 if prompted.

I can not figure out how to put in discovery mode when turning on


close the mic and hold down the button until it becomes purple. Open the mic and it should stay steady lit purple. Then you can pair it with your phone. I found the manual online because I had lost mine as well. Also, make sure any old phone you were using it with is off so it does not connect with that one. Good luck!

How do you reset it?


Turn the headset off (flip the boom in) then hold down the talk botton. The indicator should turn solid purple. Keep holding the the talk button and turn the headset on (flip the boom outward) and then it should stay soild purple and ready to pair with your phone.

Good luck.

Pairing


With the microphone closed, push in the call button. It should turn purple within a second or two. When it does release it and as quick as possible flip open the microphone. The light should stay purple and it is now in "pairing mode"

Purple light will not stay lit


I signed up JUST because this solution worked:

"Hmm this may sound like a stupid solution that doesnt work but what i did is...,

#1 I Held the button to make the violet light go on
#2 when the violet light is on dont just flip the boom mic, flip* the earpiece with it.

*note: when fliping the mic and earpiece, dont open slowly, flip it open fast and keep it there." I do want to note that my passcode was reset to nothing during my 3 months of troubleshooting.

Not going to mess with it.

Purple light wont stay lit for pairing


Make sure the microphone is closed and the BlueTooth is off. Hold the button in until it turns purple. As soon as it does release the button and flip out the microphone. The purple light should stay lit all the time now. That is until the pairing process is done with the phone.

First, turn on your bluetooth on your phone.
Flip the boom mic on your H700 and hold down the call button for 5 seconds.
The indicator light should be purple. That means it is in pairing mode.
Then using your phone, attempt to connect to your H700.
It'll ask for a passkey. The default passkey is 0000.

How to do pairing


Thank you. I called a 1-800 number for tech support but they told me I had to wait 14 days from the date of purchase before they could help me. Your suggestion was right on the money. Thank you.
