SOURCE: Have replaced the headphones with

Have you made sure to replace the batteries with the right kind? Placing non-rechargeable batteries in a charger may damage both the product or the batteries themselves. It may also be that the batteries are dead. If you are adamant about using alkaline, try replacing with a fresh set.

My Audio headset has worked great-but stopped working

Could be the battery has a weak charge! Try running the battery completely flat, recharge fully, then run completely flat, and repeat this cycle about 3 times......This will give the rechargeable battery a revitalised full charge! This is a good procedure for any rechargeable battery as part charging and charging when not completely flat does take its toll on a battery.

Hi! My headset keeps if the battery is do I recharge the headset?

Based on the manual you are supposed to get a cable that connects to the transmitter and that would be the charger, make sure that you get new rechargeable batteries because most products provide you with generic Chinese batteries and those would last just a few recharges.
I'm giving you a link to download the manual I'm not sure about the model but the principle is the same. (click on the support and manuals tab)
if it works for you don't forget to rate me

Motorola S9 headset won't charge batteries

This might work if you aren't using the ORIGINAL charger. I had this problem when my cat chewed through the original Motorola charger. I figured my Blackberry charger would work fine, but it didn't. I then discovered that my Blackberry charger was 700mAH and the broken charger was only 550mAH. When I found another charger with the proper power it charged. I also found that it worked when plugging it into my computer with a standard mini USB. I hope this helps.

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 Sound/No Power

I used your site to research the problem further. I found an answer which recommended rubbing the suspect terminal lightly with a pencil eraser. It worked! I now have battery power and my headset works fine.

Sennheiser TR136 Wireless Headphones Nothing Happens

I had a similar problem - after owning them for 4+ years, no sound we coming out, and no beeps -- nothing. The lights on the charger stand were on though.

I tried buying new rechargable AAA batteries and they were NIMH (nickel metalhydride?) and still didnt work. I borrowed a friend's pair of NICM (nickel cadmium?) AAA rechargables though and the problem was solved!

So, it would seem the some of the new chargable battery types might not work in older models of this unit (which is also called the RS 130 now in the US and Cdn web sites).

Hope this helps!

Replace the NiMh batteries. They might be bad. Could happen during power surges as you indicated you had. Let them charge up fully 14-18 hours as the book suggests.
