Question about Motorola Mobility HS850 Consumer Headset

4 Answers

Paired with old phone, can't pair with new phone.

Previously I paired my HS850 headset with a motorolla phone, when that phone died a few days later, I received a replacement phone. I put the headset in pairing mode, but the new phone will not find the device. "No Devices Found". Is there any secret button combination to reset the headset when pairing it to a different phone?

    I've had my HS850 for over a year on a Motorola RAZR phone. I just got an iPhone and it can't detect my headset. I think I am doing something wrong with my headset, but I'm not sure.

No secret button just patience
try moving the headset away from the phone when pairing
Sometimes a little distance is the difference

I cannot get my vmx100 headset to pair with my v950 motorolla phone.

Hello and welcome to fixya.

To pair your VMX100 with your phone. Take your phone and the vmx next to each other. Turn on the VMX by opening the microphone boom, it is switched on. if the vmx is not paired it will automatically go to the pairing mode.

the led should flash in red and blue to indicate that it is in pairing mode.

If you have previously paired it with another deivce then you have to enter to the pairing mode yourself. Open the microphone boom as you would turn it on. while you press on the bolume button at the same time.

The led on the top will flash alternatingly in red and blue to indicate that the headset is in the pairing mode.

On your phone, you need to make sure the bluetooth is turned on and that you are in discoverable mode, then look for bluetooth devices nearby.

The VMX 100 should show up. connect to it and your phone should ask for a passkey which is 0000 four zeros.

if the pairing was a success, the led on the top will flash slowly in blue.

your headset is now paired, if not, then repeat the process.

Your phone should be able to transfer the call audio to the headset either automatically or manually, have a look in your phones manual on how to transfer the call to the headset or how to use the headset with the phone.

I am trying to pair a Blackberry 8900 to the HS830 Bluetooth device. I know the passcode is 0000. But the Blackberrry is not detecting the HS830 at all. It detects other Bluetooth items, but not this one....

Put the headset in PAIRING mode, if it has been paired with another phone, it will not accept a new pairing or another phone until you put it in pairing mode again. Press the button until the LED gets steadily ON, search the headset and pair it with the new phone. It only accepts one paired phone at a time.

Bh 101 bluetooth headset lost manual and forgot pairing code

Try this: 1. Ensure that your phone is switched on. 2. If the headset has not been previously paired with a device, switch on the headset. The headset enters the pairing mode, and the indicator light starts to flash blue quickly. If the headset has been previously paired with another device, switch off the headset, and press and hold the multifunction key until the indicator light starts to flash blue quickly. 3. Activate the Bluetooth feature on the phone, and set it to search for Bluetooth devices. See the user guide of your phone for instructions. 4. Select the headset from the list of found devices. 5. Enter the passcode 0000 to pair and connect the headset to your phone. In some phones, you may need to make the connection separately after pairing. You only need to pair the headset with your phone once. If pairing is successful, the headset appears in the menu of the mobile phone where you can view the currently paired Bluetooth devices. When the headset is connected with your mobile phone and ready for use, the indicator light of the headset slowly flashes blue.

Won't connect to cell

When you're in a call w/the headset paired to the phone, if you press the options menu on the phone, it should say "Switch to Phone". If it doesn't then you're paired, but not using the headset. If it shows "Switch to Headset", click that and you'll be good to go.

Motorola HS850 Headset gone silent

I bought a new HS850 and guess what, I got this hearing problem on the very first day ...phew ! I did the pairing with my Motorola A1200 phone and it worked for once, even the sound was coming in the earpiece and then I put it to charge for the first time and once done, I again started it up and it got connected with the phone and after that there was no sound in the ear piece. I was going nuts....about what could be the problem.

So i decided to delete the earlier paired profile from my phone and do the pairing again and guess what...It Worked....:) So you can try that out too....

Pairing Motorola RAZR with the HS850

No, living outside of your cellular "home area" has nothing to do with the bluetooth pairing. You're problem is a common problem. Lots people have this problem you are not alone. So, here is what I suggest. 1. Make sure both the headset and the phone are fully charged. 2. Delete the "device" from your phone. I mean precisely that. Go into you cell phone's bluetooth settings and erase your "HS850" from it. 3. Try re-pairing it. Put the phone and the headset in pairing mode and allow it to sync. This should do it. I always works for me. You usually only need to pair once and every time you use the headset all you should have to do is connect it. I hope this works for you. Good Luck.
