This sounds like the battery is no longer viable. Unfortunately, the headset does not have a replaceable battery. First you need to check if the headset is under warranty, and if so, get it replaced. But if it is not under warranty, you may want to take a look at the link below to see a newer headset that is compatible in looks to yours.

When I try to charge my headset, the indicator light flashes red instead of staying solid. Please help me, I love this headset and I'm so upset it won't work for me..


If this is not charging correctly it may be that the battery is no longer functioning properly. The batteries are non replaceable on this headset. If this is still under warranty (1year) you should be able to get a replacement

PL-CS55 headset lifts receiver but only get buzzing sound in


Try a system reset:
1. Lift the headset off of the charging cradle (the base).  Make sure the headset is turned off.  The green light on the base won't be on if the headset is turned off. 2. Hold down the call answer button on the headset at the same time as mute button.  The mute button is found on the little black wheel on the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight in. 3. Hold both buttons until you see a green light on the headset flash.  It will be right below your thumb.  Hold both buttons until the green light flashes for a series of 2 flashes.  Then let go of both buttons. 4. Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back off and try again. 5. If this doesn't work repeat the process once more or try a resubscription.
Resubscription procedure:
1. Put the headset back onto the charging cradle.  Make sure the red light on the base is on and the yellow light is flashing. 2. On the back of the base there are two buttons for the microphone adjustment that can be pressed down.  Press both of those down until the red light and yellow light on the front of the base start flashing. 3. While the headset is still on the charging cradle press and hold the mute button until the red light on the base goes solid, and the yellow light stays flashing. 4. Unplug the power to the base and then plug it back in. 5. Wait 20 seconds and try.

Headset will not turn on


hello to you, ahh yes the wonderful world of moto, it sounds to me like your not letting it charge long enough, when you start the charge it will go red, than after a bit it will go yellow and when fully charged it will go to a real dark green.( some times up to 3 hours, no!! im not kidding,) it amazes me how long it takes. step 2. when you want to put it in discover mode press the call button in till it turns solid purple than pull the mike down real quick and it should stay purple at this point you have 30 seconds to pair that puppy. good luck and you will get used to it. hope you only have one. i have seven.

BT500V won't charge


This happens because the battery gets too low to take a charge.
To jump start the headset, connect the power lead and the LED will be flashing red. now press and hold the power and BT pairing buttons. The LED should change to solid red.
I found that holding both buttons for about 3-5 minutes allowed the battery to get enough charge to start charging and you can release the buttons and the headset will continue to charge.
If the led starts flashing again, just repeat the process again.
Hope this helps...
