Hi... I'm trying to pair my HBM-710 to my Sony Ericsson 710A. It worked for several months but recently stopped working. When I pair it, my phone finds "unknown." That's OK, it used to work. Now, I seem to be successfully paired but when I try to connect, I get the message, "Bluetooth connection failed." The little bluetooth icon on the screen appears and has a < on the right hand side, which I take to mean it's trying.
Got the same issue .. i used to use it on a se k750i .. it worked perfectly .. i unpaired the headseat .. and erased the device from my phone .. now i got a se w800 and i can't get to connect it .. it just does not find it .. i've tryed this on several phones and still no solution ... i guess i'll have to write LG a messaage or smth .. good luck! marius

It sounds as if the device is not paired with your Chocolate. Press and hold the button on the face of the HBM-710 headset for approximately five seconds, or until the light comes on and stays on steadily, then discover the device with your handset's Bluetooth screen. Once it shows up in the list of devices, select in and pair it with your phone.
First, open the phone's Bluetooth screen. On the HBM-710, press and hold the button on the face for about five seconds, or until the light comes on and STAYS on. Now find the headset with your phone and pair it.
Just came across your question while searching for the same answer - Here's what I found out:
When it's off, press and hold the on button for 5 seconds - it'll turn on, but keep holding until you hear the short beep - the light's on and you're where you want to be. Here's the full text that I found from the manual:
-With the HBM-710 off, press and hold the PWR/END button for 5 seconds
(You will hear a short beep and the LED indicator will stay red, when the device enters pairing mode)
-Using your handset, find the "Bluetooth menu" and "search for" or "add" new devices
- Select "LG HBM-710" from the list of devices and pair it with your headset
- When asked for the Pass/PIN code during the pairing procedure, please enter "0000" (4 zeros)
- Once pairing has been completed successfully, you will hear a beep
- After pairing successfully, be sure to "connect" to the LF HBM-710
- If you want to pair with other devices in the future, the headset must be in "Pairing mode"
- If it will be not connected the "Pairing" for three minutes, it will be turned off.
Here's how to get the LG HBM-710 Bluetooth headset into pairing mode:
While the headset is OFF, press and HOLD the power button. CONTINUE to do so even after it has powered up. About 3-4 seconds after the startup beeps there will be one more beep. Then, the red light will go solid.
You are now in pairing mode! Hooray!
Go through the necessary 'Add a Device' steps on your cell or whatever and you should be G2G!
Sounds like someone "hacked" your headset and changed the code and display name. if you don't know the new code then my only suggestion would be head to your local distributor (probably a Verizon store) and ask them to reset your headset for you.
I found the solution. The original password setting is a combination of zeroes - at least 4. If you did not originally change your password setting for your bluetooth from the original setting - try that. It worked for me.
