Question about Radio Communications
My headset will not power on or charge. I have the bluetooth Plantronics P590. Worked great yesterday. Just a few months old and haven't had any problems until today when I thought my battery was dead and I plugged them in to charge. Won't charge off the computer USB charger or the wall plug in so, shouldn't be a charger cord problem. Any thoughts?
This is a "known issue" that I have raised to Plantronics. Whether they do anything about it, remains to be seen. The workaround I have discovered seems to work with both of my P590 headphones that stopped charging:
1. Plug in the USB charging cable to a laptop or computer that is powered on.
2. Connect the USB charging cable to the headphones
3. Connect the 3.5mm headphone cord cable to the headphone output on the laptop of computer (this is the long cable with the normal 3.5mm stereo plug at each end)
4. Plug the other end of the 3.5mm cable into the P590 input.
The headphones should start charging.

Thank you so much Carlos!!! I received these headphones as a gift about a decade ago and they were my favourite so I was quite upset when a couple years ago they wouldn't charge for me. I packed them away in a box in hopes that I might be able to fix them one day (I'm a tinkerer). Found them last week and decided to give it one last go before finally putting them to rest in the garbage when I found your post. IT WORKED!!! This just made my whole week. Thank you so much!!!!!!
