Power on/off Turning On Unit

The headset will not turn on, though the transmitter is fine. I squeezed the earpiece with the power button in on itself, and then firmly pressed and held the on button, and it popped on. This only worked once. I banged the earpiece with the On button while washing my car, but there wasn't even a scratch on the unit, and it seemed to work just fine. Any advice?? thanks david z

    Yes I have the same problem.



    Headphones fully charged and adapter is fine but cannot get the headphone to power on.



    Even tried resetting the adapter

    I used to be able to push the power control in at just the right spot sometimes and the would turn on but now they don't turn on at all... If these have a 2 year warranty I will be sending them back for replacements.

  • rj4398 Feb 25, 2008

    Same problem here! The headset is only 2 months old, and I'm having to return them under the warranty guarantee.

  • slautterback Mar 09, 2008

    Same prob, I did get to work by removing the star ***** behind the ear cushion, then sliding the silver band that's just above the R (right side indicator).
    Then I spread apart the plastic carefully until they unsnapped partially and then stayed open.
    then I pushed the power on button and it works.
    Who knows why this problem is present, maybe some can offer a permenant
    fix.

    were do you go to send them back to get a new pair

    same problem. headset not coming on period, but transmitter is fine.

  • sdubya Jul 27, 2008

    Same problem on my Freepulse headset. Got worse over a 2-3 day window until it finally quit turning on or off altogether. Followed seven step process listed by "guest" and I could see that the small push button switch under the power tab was indeed lifting up off the tiny PCB it is mounted to. You will need a very fine tipped soldering iron and be careful not to short the solder to any other parts of the circuit board.



    The pushbutton swith does not have adequate mechanical mounting relief and will likely become a problem for many users after prolonged use. One could try a dot of epoxy or superglue to try and secure the body of the switch to the PCB to help avoid repeated failures.

    The solution above my post is truly the best one. I did as he/she said and now everything works! Eventually I think I may replace the support for the power button, but it works now and that is all that matters. Thank you to the guy/girl who offered this solution.

I had the same problem, but I fixed it. It's a very easy fix takes about five minutes. I don't think I need to post an instructable on this, but if someone needs photo-illustrated guide, I can do that.
Basically, the symptoms I had was that the on/off button worked but as time went on, i had to press it more firmly and harder. Basically the switch on the circuit board started to come off as I realized when I opened the headphones. Here are the instructions to open your headphones and fixing it.

1. Take the rubber thing that holds on to your ear, followed by the cushion on top of the speaker. They should just come right off by applying a small amount of force.
2. You should see a screw near the neckband, remove that. I believe its a torx six screw so you will need a torx 6 screw driver. Now, if you don't have one you can use one of those eyeglass repair screw drivers and try those.
3. Next, if you look closely near the on/off button (the silver plastic part) you should see gaps in increments. Take a flat head screw driver, and pry those spaces open, They should come right off.
4. Next, near the neckband and the speaker, there is a circular silver piece, that needs to be moved. Just apply a little bit of force or use pliers to push it back towards towards the neckband.
5. Now, slowly very carefully keep prying until the speaker gets separated from the headset pcb board.
6. Now, everything exposed, you should see a very tiny switch, that has started to come off. So taking a soldering iron solder the two ends of the switch.
7. Put everything back, and enjoy!

I have the same problem mine except mine just stopped working altogether for no reason. I checked the website and these things are supposed to have a 2-year warranty through logitech so I'm just going to try and get them replaced under warranty and unless anyone has anything better to do i suggest you do the same.

How do i fix power button switch on my wireless bluetooth headset? it the LG tone HBS-700


It is possible you may have broken the power switch off of the circuit board. To find out, you will need to open the earpiece and inspect it. Here is a video on how to open the earpiece LG Tone HBS700 730 repair mod and upgrade. If it has broken off, you may be able to solder it back on to the circuit board. If it is beyond repair, you could purchase a broken earpiece for cheap and use this video to repair it.

I hope this helps.

Turning the plantronics 510 headset off


Holding down the small black button at the top of the earpiece will power down the headset. Plantronics offers great support too so you can contact them at plantronics.com or check out the Plantronics 510 manual for info.

Ear piece does not work. Station top light does not come on


The 500A base station is definitely compatible with the 510 earpiece. If the earpiece is turned off or unpaired the base station's red power light will be flashing. If the earpiece is already off, try turning it on by holding down the little black button on top. The base station will automatically try to find the earpiece and the blue light on top of the base will come on. If the earpiece is already on (slow flashing blue light on the mic boom) turn it off and back on again and wait for the base to find it.

Plantronics voyager 510 headset


Make sure the headpiece is charged. Turn the headpiece off by pressing the little black button on top of the earpiece and holding for about 5 seconds. Turn the earpiece back on again the same way. You should have a slow flashing blue light on the mic boom. The base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.
If this doesn't work you may need to manually pair the earpiece to the base by pressing and holding the Listen Volume Adjust + Button and headset Call Control Button on the earpiece until the light on the mic boom flashes red and blue repeatedly. As above, the base station will now try to find the earpiece and within about 20 seconds the red light on the base should be steady and blue light on top should be on.

It sounds like you need to re-register the earpiece to the base. To do this, use the following steps:
1. Return the headset to the
Headset Docking Cradle

2. Press and hold both the
Speak Volume Adjust Buttons (+/-)
on the back of base unit for a
minimum of 5 seconds. The
Red Power Indicator will then
flash

3. Press and hold the Headset
Mute Switch (black button on top
of earpiece) for a minimum
of 5 seconds. The On-line
indicator (green light on boom)
will then illuminate.

4. Subscription completion is
indicated when the Power
Indicator is fully illuminated
and the On-line Indicator is
extinguished.

5. If subscription fails within 2
minutes the headset will return
to the un-subscribed state.
