Re: plantronics cs55 problem
Turn on the wireless headset as soon as the HL10 lifter picks up the headset. Remember to press the call answer switch. A steady green light should come on the base and the wireless headset should have a small green blinking light on, on its side.
* Make sure your hand receiver is off the hook when using the headset. Also check that you hear a dial tone on the handset/hand receiver before turning on the headset.

The ring from the telephone is picked up by the internal microphone on
the HL10 Handset Lifter, typically for most phones, the lifter sits
directly over the speaker grill on the telephone where the sound comes
out. For telephones that curve out on the left side and don't have a
straight edge, there is an accessory called a "Ring Detector" which is
used. Here's a link:
the internal mic on the lifter has gone out, you can plug the ring
detector into the handset lifter and just stick the ring detector over
the speaker grill to pick up the ring. Plugging this into the lifter
will bypass the internal mic, this accessory would have come with your
HL10 lifter. You can also check the ring volume on the telephone, and
you can also try adjusting the ring tone on the phone (sometimes it will
pick up one ring tone better than another). Here is a link below if
you need to order a new ring detector: HL10 Nortel Adapter Kit 63014-01
This works if you're using the HL10 handset lifter with your CS70. The
HL10 has a built-in microphone to pick up the vibrations from the
ringing of the phone speaker under the handset. The HL10 came with an
accessory package that has an extra round microphone on a cord to help
the lifter if the telephone speaker is located in an out-of-reach
location on the phone. You take that external microphone, plug it into a
jack on the back of the HL10 and let it hang free making sure it's not
resting on any surface. That should eliminate any ringing in your
The internal gears on the Plantronics HL10 may be worn. You can take
the handset receiver off hook and try manually raising up the lifter as
far as it will go and then slowly pushing it back down into place,
sometimes this will help to get it back working properly. If that
doesn't work, you may need to replace the HL10 lifter. Below is a link where you can purchase a new lifter.
This how I fixed it 1) set bottom mic to A 2) set dial on the side of CS55 to "Setting 1" most typical 3) set sound lever on the back to "1" 4) played with mic control on the back until quality became sufficient
NOTE: Before re-subscribing the system make sure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the "_" position and NOT the "=" position. To Re-Subscribe:

4. Press the mute switch (black wheel on the top of the headset) straight down until a green light appears on the headset, then let go of the wheel, and the light should remain on the headset.
5. Resubscription is finished when the red light on the base is fully illuminated and the green light on the headset disappears.
6. Remove the headset from the charging base lift telephone handset/press headset button if not using a handset lifter. The headset and base should now be connected.
7. If this procedure does not resolve your issue to try a system reset.
