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

Re: Power on/off Turning On Unit

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!

Re: Power on/off Turning On Unit

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.

Headset will not re-set according to instructions. Indicator light is half red, half blue. What should I do?

I had the same issue with green light always on and not turning off. Call button plus volume up button did not work when the unit was not plugged in. When I plugged the unit in to charge, the volume up and call button (together) did reset the unit.

Cannot get power to the unit the light indicating power is out

I have the same model as you. I have two transmitters and three headphones actually. Please see below:

Plug in the transmitting unit into a good working power outlet. Make sure you have the audio connected to a loud source. Turn on the source device producing the loud audio to be transmitted to your headphones. Now see if the transmitting unit's LED light is on. Check headphones for audio. (May have to tune in the headphones and adjust its volume as well).
I recommend that the source of your audio have its built-in speakers off, while still providing audio out to your transmitting unit, via an external audio output. Check your source manual or look for audio jacks on the front or back. There may be a setting to turn this on and for the main built-in speakers to be turned off as well.

If this does not work, unplug the transmitting unit, and then plug it back in again, after waiting for about 10 seconds - all while audio is being provided to the unit. It should come on.

RCA headphones - nicad or alkaline batteries WHP141

Your wireless headphone unit requires two rechargeable AAA batteries.
Rechargeable batteries are uncharged when you purchase them. Before
you can use the wireless headphones, the batteries must be charged for
16 hours. Follow these steps to install and charge the batteries.
Installing the Rechargeable Batteries
Take care to follow these steps to correctly install the batteries.
1. On the right headphone, locate the battery compartment (1).
Use the finger depression on the compartment to turn the battery
compartment cover counterclockwise to remove the cover.
2. Insert two AAA rechargeable batteries, carefully following the
markings inside to ensure the batteries are inserted properly, with
the + and - ends in the correct positions.
3. Replace the battery compartment cover.
Charging the Rechargeable Batteries
To recharge the headset unit, follow the directions below. Note: The
cradle/transmitter on the WHP141 is not a recharging cradle, although
you may place the headset in the cradle during recharging.
Follow these steps to recharge the NiMH rechargeable batteries.
1. Make sure the ON/OFF switch (2), located on the right headphone,
is in the OFF position.
2. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket (11), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter.
3. Plug the adapter into an electrical outlet.
4. Connect the charging cable (10), located on the back of the
cradle/transmitter to the recharging input (3), located on the right
headphone. The headphones can either be placed in the
cradle/transmitter or placed next to the unit. If the headphones are
connected correctly, the charging LED indicator light on the
cradle/transmitter (8) illuminate.

No charge for xbox wireless headphones

There should be lights on the front of the headset's transmitter box. Are these lit up?
Also, there should be a "palm tree" icon on the left earcup of the headset. When you turn on the headset from the POWER button, the palm tree should flash about once a second. Is it flashing?
If not, you may need to "pair" the headset to the transmitter.

Audio from tv is not restored by turning off power on headphones

It sounds as if you are plugging the base into a standard headphone jack located on the Television set.

RCA Headphone jacks (incl mini) automatically stop the sound output to the main speakers on almost every set I have seen.. or home stereo.. etc etc

In other words you can take a standard RCA jack.. with nothing connected to it.. plug it in while the music or sound is coming out the main speaker.. and it will cut off the output to those speakers..

If you set has audio outputs on the back.. preferably Fixed Audio Out .. you will need to connect your base unit to those.. turn your set volume to 0 and adjust the headset volume using the control on the right ear-cup.

If you have variable audio out.. you will need to go into your TV sets setup menu.. turn off the speaker.. and turn up the set until you achieve a signal and decent volume through the headset.

If you are missing these connections.. your current “work around” is your only solution.

Best of luck

Won't charge or turn on.

I wrote to Insignia and they recommended the following procedure, which worked for me:

1- Plug the charger into a power outlet
2- Press the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons at the same time for resetting the device.

My earphones are working well now.

Trying re-syncing the transmitter and the headphones. Hold down the power buttons on both until they alternate red and blue blinking, worked for me and now they work just fine. Got that from the Logitech FAQ website.
