Re: Incoming alert

Generally you will get a ring in the headset when a call is detected by the lifter that you use or if you don't have a lifter then you would have to use the little microphone that comes with the unit and affix that to the speaker on your phone so that your GN 9120 knows when to alert you of a call.

NEC DTU 16D 1A not ringing

Your PABX line settings need to be programmed for "ringing" as incoming call notification for each specific assigned number (wired port assignment).

Incoming call alert

You will need the Plantronics HL10 handset lifter in order to have the CS55 ring, indicating an incoming call. The HL10 also allows you to answer remotely on most phones and hang-up remotely.

My headset won't stop sending an incoming alert ring continually even when on a call is there a master reset. I have 2 of these plantronics pro and both are now doing this it seems as when you have 2...

If you hold down the power on button while plugging in the a/c adapter charger, this should force the headset into a power cycle on the headset and correct the problem.

I use the handset lifter for the phone I have (Polycom SE-225). When am sitting at my desk neat the phone, I speak anything above a low normal into the bluetooth headset, like when I am laughing or people...

Unfortunately no. The phone ringer has to be a certain volume for the lifter microphone to pick up the ringing vibrations. If you put it to low, you will not be alerted to the incoming calls. When you're at your desk and can see the incoming calls, maybe then you can lower the telephone ringer volume for some relief.

Cannot hear phone ringing in headset, only on handset.

The HL10 handset lifer is what notifies your headset that you have an incoming call. If you are using the handset lifter and are not receiving the 3 short beeps in your ear piece there are a couple different things that could be going on.
1. The internal microphone could have gone out on the lifter. This microphone is what sends the signal to your headset that you have an incoming call. If the microphone is working you will hear 3 short beeps in your headset.
2. If the volume is too low on your telephone, the handset lifter will not notify the headset of an incoming call, so try turning the volume up on your phone and see if that takes care of the problem.
3. The HL10 handset lifter ships with a ring detector that has a 2.5mm jack on one end and a small round microphone on the other end. This ring detector is intended for phones that do not have the speaker located under the handset. You could try plugging this into the back of the lifter and setting the microphone next to where the lifter is mounted on your phone. This might help pick up the sound of the phones ring tone.

If you are manually lifting your handset out of the cradle and sitting it to the side instead of using a lifter, then you will not receive the 3 short beeps in your earpiece to notify you of an incoming call.

The earpiece will make 3 short beeps when a call is incoming. Also the phone will still ring if you are within distince to hear the ringer. Hope this helps! SM

you may have the earpiece volume too low, because you will only recieve a bleep when there is an incoming call, not a ringing tone, or just set it to auto answer in the phone settings.
