    I tried this before I received assistance. It worked. The solution sent to me is 100% correct.

    Thank You

    I just purchased a new set and after charging the batteries and hooking the transmitter up to my ipod, i only hear 6 beeps. Pressing the Tone button does nothing. As suggested by this post, I 'reset' the system by removing the batteries and unplugging the transmitter for more than 30 seconds but this didnt solve it! I tried this again and still all I hear ar the 6 beeps. The lights on the transmitter are all working (showing green ON/OFF and flashing red CHARGE). Should I return these headphones?

Try to remove the batteries and at the same time unplug the power of the base for at least 30 sec. then replug and reinsert the batteries. That did the trick on mine.

Sennheiser HDR 130 with TR 130 transmitter not working.

If you twist the earpiece,one of them has two NIMH AAA batteries ,worth checking out if these are gone ,which is what happened to me.I was about to bin my rs130's and just stuck two new rechargeables and the earphones are working again!!!!!

As for $20 dollars from sennheiser for replacements!?!?!?
You should pick up two NIMH batteries for a couple of bucks on ebay or amazon.DO NOT USE ORDINARY BATTERIES!!!!!

While i am listening , every 5-10 minutes it starts tp bee[

With wireless headphones, a beeping signal most often means one of two things, a low battery or a bad signal. Please try the steps below to hopefully solve the beeping problem:
1. Turn off the headphones for a few seconds, then turn them back on while holding the button below the volume dial (look for signal button) for 5-10 seconds
2. If the above does not solve the beeping, then I would try to replace the batteries with either another set of NiMH rechargeable batteries or any other standard AA.
Hope this helps.

My sennheiser hdr 130 has no sound even though it has lights on its based and it is connected to my t.v. what is the cause of this problem and the solution?

This worked for me (this solution was posted on another thread). Unplug the base and take out the headset batteries. Wait 30 seconds. Reconnect. Turn on head set. I could hear immediately!

My cordless HDR 130 Sennheiser headphones no longer charge. I have only had them for about four years. What do you think is going on?

The batteries are at end-of-life OR your charger has failed.

Forst replace the batteries... they are MOST likely bad. Charge the new ones before using.

Have a TR130. Unit is 5 plus years old. Original batteies

Being over 5 years, I know these batteries don't last that long typically. But even if you change the battery this problem still occurs, I see:

Get your multimeter and try measuring the battery voltage when they were out and when they were in with the thing turned on. If the volts don't change more than millivots (small), then it's not the batteries.
Check the REC OUT to make sure it's not set to PHONO it should be on SOURCE. You should be able to hear a little bit of static if it's normal.
Did you try changing channels? I thought the channel switch was a rotating knob, but it's not -- it's a push button that toggles from 1 to 2 to 3, and takes a few seconds to auto-fine tune on the frequency. Try changing the frequency and waiting five to ten seconds between button pushes to see what happens.

You really should get some new batteries if the above information doesn't resolve it, new AAA rechargeable batteries should.

Complete silence on HDR 130 headset - probably in discharged state for some time, now charged for 48 hours

I had complete silence on an HDR 130 headset (no beeps, nothing), but I solved this problem using a solution posted on another thread. Unplug the base, take out the batteries and wait 30 seconds. Reconnect it all and listen. Mine started working immediately!

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!

On/Off not lit when plugged in

There is help for this in the user manual. Possible solutions I would try:

1. Make sure your source sound (TV, amp etc) is up high enough - if the sound is too low the headphones won't detect a signal.

2. Try changing the channel (the switch on the bottom left of the cradle base) and pressing the "Tune" button on your headphones. Try all three positions, pressing "Tune" at least 3 times in each position.

3. Take out batteries & turn off base, leave for 30 secs, reassamble and try step 2 again.

Should all work ok. I've been using mine for over a year and they're great!

Have not used them for a while

These systems have some signal detection, so needs an input to fire it all up. That is the same for the greenlight, when initially switched on for my HDR 120.
