I have a Sennheiser MM100 Bluetooth headphones that has stopped responding. It will not turn on/off and the LED light is blinking a continuous blue. How do I get it to function again?


Found this online. Hope it helps you out.

Switching the headset on
To switch the headset on:
Press and hold the Play/Pause button for 2 seconds.
An ascending confirmation beep is heard in the headset and the LED indicates the current operating mode. Flashing in blue indicates that the battery charge status is OK; flashing in red indicates a low
battery (see page 6).
The LED flashes several times every second:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices and tries to connect to one of these devices.
The LED flashes slowly (once every second):
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is no current connection because the
Bluetooth device is switched off or out of range.
The LED flashes once every 3 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is neither an audio transmission nor an active call.
The LED is glowing slowly every 4 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices, a sound file is received via A2DP and played back or
paused.
The LED flashes once every second:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices and there is currently an active call.
If you switch on the headset and keep the Play/Pause button pressed for 5 seconds, the headset will go into pairing mode (see ?Pairing the headset? on page 9).
The LED flashes alternatingly in red and blue for up to 60 seconds:
The headset is not yet paired to any Bluetooth device. Pair it as described under ?Pairing the headset? on page 9.

Can not connect my 9xxBackbeat bluetooth headphone to my laptop. My OS (Win 7 x32) recognize this device but then it says it can download the driver to run this device


In order to use this headset, your built-in Bluetooth in your PC needs to support the hands free profile, audio and A2DP profile. If it does, all you need to do is hold in the power button on the headset until you see the light on the headset flashing red/blue, red/blue. If it doesn't you'll need to load it onto your computer. Once the headset is flashing red/blue your computer should find it.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How to link my blue tooth


Pairing the Plantronics Explorer 220:

For most phones, select Settings/Tools, Connections, Bluetooth, On. See your phone's user guide for more information.

With the 220 headset powered off, turn on the headset by pressing and holding the call control button for approximately 5 seconds until the LED flashes red & blue. The Explorer 220 headset is now in pairing mode. If you don't see the red/blue flash, press and hold the power button to turn your headset off, and then press and hold the power button again and hold for 5-6 seconds until you see the red & blue flash.

From your phone, go to the Bluetooth menu and select "Search" or "Add Device". Your phone should find the headset which will appear as "2xxPlantronics" in your list of devices.

If prompted for the Passkey (PIN code), enter 0000. If your phone asks for a PIN/passkey, enter 0000 (4 zeros). Pairing is successful when the LED on your headset flashes blue. Your headset is now connected and ready to use.

MY VOYAGER PRO .. LIGHT FLASHES BLUE RED BLUE RED ... CAN'T TURN OFF, CAN'T RESET, CAN'T RE PARE


If you manually turn the headset off, make sure that it is by itself, no other phones in the area, no WiFi hotspots. Once this is done make sure that there is not a bluetooth already installed on the phone itself, if there is, delete it. Make sure that the headset has a full charge. Try the pairing again. If this still won't work, you can try Plantronics Tech service line 800-544-4660.

Okay i have the mad catz 8806 mic it flashes red and blue and charges fine but i cant talk into it and cant hear anyone through it at all it beeps and i hear that.


If the headset you have is the Item No. 8860 in order to use it you have to pair it.
If you are using it on a PS3 then be sure that you have selected the headset in the PlayStation's settings.

Pairing is a process of associating Bluetooth devices with each other. It will establish a permanent security link between the devices and enable quick access to the services provided without the need to re-enter Pass Keys. You will only need to pair your PS3 and the Headset once.

Paired devices remain paired even when:
-One of the devices is powered off.
-A service connection is interrupted or stopped.
-One or both devices are restarted.

Pairing the Headset with the PS3
Before the Headset can be used with the PS3, the two devices must be 'paired' so they can communicate with each other. Use a gaming controller for this procedure and ensure that the Headset is powered on (flashing blue LED light) and that it is not being charged via USB cable.

1. Power on your PS3 console.

2. Within the "Settings" menu, press X on "Accessory Settings."

3. Press X on the icon labeled: "Manage Bluetooth® Devices."

4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: "Register New Device."

IMPORTANT: Depending on your model of the 8860 Bluetooth® Headset, your power button is either an oval shape with an icon of a circle with a line going through it (5a) or it is a button with a phone icon (5b). Please follow the appropriate next step depending on your model of the 8860.

5a. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by holding down the K1 button until the LED flashes Blue and Red (hold K1 approx 12 seconds).

5b. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by tapping the pairing button located next to the volume controls on the side until the LED flashes BOTH Blue and Red.

6. Once the Headset's LED indicator is alternately flashing Blue and Red (indicating the Headset is ready to be paired), press X on "Start Scanning."

7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.

8. Locate "8860" from the list of available devices and press X on its icon to be prompted for a Pass Key

9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass Key and press X on OK

10. You should then be taken to a new screen stating: "Register completed"

.

Troubleshooting



Q. The PS3 is unable find the Headset.
A. If the Headset has been paired with another Bluetooth device, the PS3 will have trouble finding the Headset. Either remove the Headset from the paired device or turn off the Bluetooth power on the paired device.

Q. The Headset cannot be activated after being charged for 20 minutes.
A. To activate the Headset, the battery needs to charge for at least 40 minutes. It is highly recommended to fully charge the battery before use.

Q. No indication of charging is shown.
A. If the Headset battery is empty or has not been used for a long time, it may take some time for the Headset LED indicator to show charging status with a steady Red light. Make sure the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on. The 8860 cannot charge without the console being turned on.

Q. No sound can be heard from the Headset.
A. Please make sure of the following:

-Make sure that the two devices have been paired.
-Make sure that the Headset is turned on.
-Make sure that the two paired devices are within 30 Ft. (9.15 meters) of each other.

*** Do not try to pair the headset to the PLAYSTATION 3 when the headset is attached to the USB cable. If it is attached to the USB cable when trying to pair up, it won't pair with the PLAYSTATION 3. ***
