Red blinking light


Hi, Ephraim. The flashing red light indicates that the device is showing "low battery". It could be that the LG phone charger fits the charging port on your bluetooth headset but it is not compatible with your device. In order for you to know that it is charging, the device should show a steady red light(means charging).
Please take a look at the table reference below.

Headset is not charging through USB


If you are using a USB hub, then try connecting the USB dongle directly to the USB port of the machine/laptop. Some USB hubs will not charge devices properly.
I had a similar problem with my headsets solved by plugging into a USB port directly.

How do i charge my lg bluetooth headset with AC charger. I cannot find an adapter insert on the headset.


HI. You will need to remove the concealment cover on the charging port before you can connect the charger. The cover is on the opposite side of the volume button. It will have the initials "PWR" on the cover. Pull that off to expose the charging port.

Handsfree not working


Make sure that the phone cord that comes out of the back of the CS50 base plugs into the Handset port of the avaya telephone, not the headset port.  Then make sure the coily cord that comes out of the telephone handset is plugged into the front of the CS50 base.
It takes 1.5 hours to charge to 80% capacity, and 3 hours for a full charge.  You will know it's charged fully because the yellow blinking light on the front of the base will now be solid.

Plantronics Problem with my headset


Setup the Plantronics CS60 wireless headset as follows:

  • Locate the 2 ports on the bottom of the CS60 charging base. One has an icon of a "full telephone" and the other has an icon of a "hand receiver."
  • Unplug the hand receiver from the base of your existing telephone and plug it into the "hand receiver" port on the CS60 base unit.
  • Then take the short cable that came with the CS60 and plug it into the "full telephone" port on the base of the CS60.
  • Plug the other end of the short cord into the hand receiver port of your telephone (where the hand receiver just was).
  • Make sure the AC Power is plugged into the wall, and then you can adjust the configuration settings.
To be able to hear or speak through the handset, either place the headset back into its charging cradle or press the call control button on the side of the headset. The talk indicator light on the base should go off and no sound will come through the headset.

To be able to hear or speak through the headset, press the call control button on the side of the headset. The talk indicator light on the base should go on and the green light on the side of the headset should be blinking.

Note: Make sure that the cables are connected correctly and the handset cable is connected to the base of the CS60 base.

Wep210


There's a small power jack under a tab at the base of the unit. I found it only charges if you plug it into the transformer travel charger. For some reason plugging it in the PC USB port doesnt work.

If the unit is being charged a red LED will light up, turns blue after 2/3 hours when its fully powered up.
