Unfortunately sometimes buttons get stuck, the best method to attempt to fix is good ole Isopropyl Alcohol and a Q-Tip.

Dip 1 head of a Q-tip in the alcohol, then swab the corners of your button, be sure not to SATURATE the button, just so that the acholol penetrates the cracks of the unit where the call button is located.

Once swabbed, place the headset on a warm or hot surface, maybe in direct sunlight, on top of an entertainment center, on top of a satellite or cable TV receiver in your home for an hour or two, for the radiation to dry out any wet solvent that may have seeped inside the unit.

Remember Isporopyl Alcohol is an aseptic cleaner, and, when dolluted with water, cleans hospitals and pharmacies, and is used in about 90% of workplaces with computers as a cleaner and electronic disenfectant.
Be aware, I am not responsible for any damages of your unit, but this is the only fix I know of.

I hope this helps, or you can go to the website of your supplier, fill out an online registration form for your unit, then give them a call and request an exchange or repair authorization.

How to connect it to samsung seek cell phone


When joining (or pairing) a Plantronics bluetooth headset to another device a lot depends on the other device. Assuming that you know the necessary steps of your phone or PC for connecting a bluetooth device, all Plantronics headsets pretty much follow a set pairing procedure for connectivity. This one is for the Discovery 975:

1 Turn on the Bluetooth feature on your phone.
2 Turn the earpiece on. Press and hold the call control button until the indicator flashes red/white.
3 Use the commands on your phone to locate and select your earpiece. 9xx Plantronics.
4 If prompted for the PIN code or Passkey, enter 0000.

Pairing is successful when the indicator on your earpiece flashes white.

Note If your phone supports Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you will not need to enter a PIN code or Passkey.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How to program to a cell phone


The normal procedure is:
Turn on Bluetooth on the cell phone.
Turn on the charged earphone.
Press search for devices on the cell phone.
When the earphone is found enter '0000', four zeros, press enter.
It should now say device connected.
If not:
Is '0000' the correct code? look in the owner's manual.
Is the earpiece charged? Power light on, blinks?
Is the procedure slightly different? Check owner's manual.
Is it still linked to a different phone? Turn off that phone.
If you still have issues, the earpiece is probably defective.

Bluetooth wont sync with my bluetooth enabled phone


This is not actually a solution, but when I had the same problem with my Jabra (which I think is one of the best), I took it to my phone store and they synched it for me. Lots of navigating around and knowledge of a code to input. Screw it, let them do it!

GN 9120 beeps constantly


Are you using the GN1000 Handset Lifter? And if so, are you playing music/radio through the speaker of your telephone? If this is the case the Lifter will be picking up the sound of the music coming from the telephone and interpreting it as an incoming call, hence sending a signal to the earpiece in the form of beeps. Just stop the music coming from the telephone and the beeps should stop.
If you are not playing music through the telephone, you may need to turn down the sensitivity adjustment on the back of the Lifter. Just turn the knob anti-clockwise a little bit and see if that eliminates the beeping. If the sensitivity adjustment is too high it will pick up every little noise that goes on around your desk and interpet them as the phone ringing.

If you are not using the GN1000 Handset Lifter, then the beeping may be the result of a sticking/stuck volume button on the earpiece. If you adjust the volume on the GN9120 it gives a beep when you reach the maximum or minimum volume. If a button is stuck down it will result in a constant beeping. A stuck button is generally not a user servicable problem, however a little bit of tinkering with the button may get it unstuck.

Can,t connect my Plantronics220 Earpiece to my phone


Begin with headset turned off. 1. Press and hold down the call control button

for 8 seconds until the headset status indicator begins to flash blue then red. The headset is now in pairing mode for the next 120 seconds.
2. While the headset is flashing, use the phone menu to search for Bluetooth devices and select "220Plantronics."
3. When prompted for a passkey, enter 0000. Headset will flash blue when paired successfully.

No sound


Had the same problem with the BT250v 'connected' to my Nokia 6021. When connected to my notebook, the 250 did produce sound, so decided the Nokia was the problem. Fixed the problem by doing a full reboot of the phone like this:

 

Jabra: Turn off the 250

Phone: Delete the BT connection to the Jabra (in BT settings)

Phone: Switch off BT

Phone: Turned off the phone (I've even removed the battery)

Phone: Turned on the phone

Phone: Switch on BT

Jabra: Turn on the 250 for detection

Phone: Look for audio devices

Phone: Connect to Jabra

 

Problem fixed!

Motorola H350 - Incoming calls


there is nothing you can do about the delay as it's the time it takes for the bluetooth to send the signal to your earpiece to tell it the call is answered, the only way to stop any delay is to set your phone to auto answer in the bluetooth headphone settings or in the call settings.
