Static in left earpiece when adjusting; adjustment eratic, finally left earpiece dropped out completely. This happened to another set and Senheiser replaced it at a cost of about $70.00. Is there an alternative?

    Why can't Senheiser get this to last? They're one of the most respected names in the audio industry. I cdonsider this a manufacturing defect. Do you agree?

The object you adjust the sound with is a potentiometer, which is a variable resistor. The contacts are circular, and increase in resistance as they are turned. They can get slightly oxidized, and dirty from dust and lint, over time, and if you can get some electrical contact cleaner sprayed on them, you have a chance of getting them to work, unless the oxidation is just too bad. When a side drops out completely, the contacts could be totally unconductive or worn, or obstructed by some particle.
So the alternative is trying to clean the potentiometers. Unfortunately, manufacturers don't make this accessible or easy, since the units are not engineered for easy servicing.
Oh, one more thing you can do is to try and find replacement potentiometers, and simply replace them. It's not usually pretty, but it can work. If Senheiser would sell you some, it might be cheaper if it looks plausible to you.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Unfortunately, no. The speaker gets demagnetized and there is nothing else you can do to fix that.

Having trouble with right earpiece not as loud as left on my lg hbs750


Probe the Settings for how to pan the sound. If you do, put the slider to where you like it and that's it! If you don't find it, try going to a local mall to a BOSE store and see if the problem occurs with their demo products. More questions? Just post a comment! -Mr. W

How to adjust the tension disks on my Pfaff sewing machine?


Make sure your bobbin is the right size. If it is too high it won't turn freely. Also, make sure you drop the bobbin in so it rotates clockwise. The tension must adjusted by hanging the bobbin from your hand and bob it up and down gently. It should move about one inch downward once adjusted properly. The hole in your plate should be checked to ensure the center where the thread dispenses is smooth. Use a finger nail file to smoothen if needed. Now, adjust the top tension to four. You may need to adjust just slightly. Just remember when you remove the bobbin assembly to put a drop of oil on the race. (Many forget this). When you rotate the handwheel towards you the bottom thread should come up. If this doesn't happen then you will need to have adjustments made.

Earpiece volume control


On the upper left edge/side of your phone, you will find your "Volume Up/Down Keys". Use these DURING a phone call to adjust the volume of your earpiece speaker. If you don't do it during a call, you will just be adjusting the ringer volume. Hope this helps.

Left channel static


I have seen dirty switches or pots cause constant static. I would get some contact cleaner and try spraying it into all switches and pots, and work them to clean the contacts. Also, check to see if there is static in a low-level output such as the one for a tape recorder.

Please advise as to how to increase the VOLUME on my DECT 6.0 phone.


To adjust the ringer volume:
  1. With the phone in standby, press ^ or v. The display shows the current volume level and the handset sounds the ringer at that level.
  2. Use ^ to make the ringer volume louder or use v to make it softer or turn it off completely.
  3. When you hear the ringer volume level you want to use, stop pressing keys. The handset will use the new ringer volume starting with the next incoming call.
Note: If you set the ringer volume to Off, the handset won't ring. If you have any accessory handsets, other handsets will ring according to their individual settings.

To adjust the earpiece volume:

You can choose from six volume levels for the handset earpiece. To adjust the earpiece volume while on a call, press ^ to make it louder or v to make it softer. The handset display shows the current volume level for the earpiece.

To adjust the speaker volume:

You can choose from six volume levels for the handset speaker while on a speakerphone call. To adjust the handset speaker volume, press ^ to make it louder or v to make it softer. The handset display shows the current volume level for the handset speaker.

Note: The handset earpiece and the handset speaker have separate volume settings.

Incoming calls: the caller can hear me but I can barely hear the caller


If you have already adjusted the volume of your cellphone, then the problem is in the earpiece. If the phone dropped accidentally the earpiece loosens its contact and you need to open the phone to adjust the contacts. If the phone was not dropped, the earpiece is busted and needs replacements.

Static and low volume in ear piece


Static is common when you are too far away from your phone or if you have a cheap earpiece. Volume will be low if your bluetooth is not up all the way, if it is adjust the volume on your actual phone. If that doesn't work, then you just have a bad bluetooth headset and should look at getting one specifically made for your phone.

New Phone Causing Echo


It sounds like your microphone volume is too loud. Get someone on a call with you so they can tell you how it sounds as you adjust it. Turn down the mic volume by pressing the + & - buttons on the earpiece together once which puts the earpiece into mic adjust mode. Then decrease the mic volume by pressing the minus button a few times until it sounds right. The earpiece will automatically revert to normal mode within a few seconds.
If this doesn't work it may be that you need to adjust the compatibility setting for the new phone. This is the small black dial on the base station. The most common setting is 'A' but you may need to experiment with other settings for that phone.

Need to adjust earpiece volume


Hi,

You can increase the earpiece volume by pressing the UP volume key (located on the side of the phone) *during* a phone call. I simply called my voicemail and once it connected, I hit the UP volume key and the volume meter displayed. Then I pressed it til it was the max and pressed SET. That worked for me, hope it works for you.
