It sounds like you need to re-register the earpiece to the base. To do this, use the following steps:
1. Return the headset to the
Headset Docking Cradle

2. Press and hold both the
Speak Volume Adjust Buttons (+/-)
on the back of base unit for a
minimum of 5 seconds. The
Red Power Indicator will then
flash

3. Press and hold the Headset
Mute Switch (black button on top
of earpiece) for a minimum
of 5 seconds. The On-line
indicator (green light on boom)
will then illuminate.

4. Subscription completion is
indicated when the Power
Indicator is fully illuminated
and the On-line Indicator is
extinguished.

5. If subscription fails within 2
minutes the headset will return
to the un-subscribed state.

Everytime i hit the blue button on the desk set i don't hear a dial tone in my head piece


Two things to remember. If you're connected through the handset jack, the handset (receiver) needs to be lifted off the phone to get a dial tone. Secondly, if you're connected through the headset jack, you may need to adjust the configuration dial (round dial on left-hand side of base) to make it work when the headset button on phone is pushed.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

The Plantronics 500A base should be plugged into the handset receiver jack on the phone, not the headset jack. It could be that the headset needs to be re-paired to the base unit, or the lifter is worn out (if using one). If you manually remove the handset receiver from the phone, and you power on and activate the headset, does sound come through ? If so, it may be the lifter. Here is a link for the 510S / 500A user guide to troubleshoot, and also a link for the pairing instructions.

Problem for Plantronics CS50 Wireless Headset - I can hear the person on the other end when the configuration dial is set to 1,2 or 3. But th other person cannot hear me. When I set the dial to 4, others...


The following is a cut from Plantronics web site. I hope it helps, It's just possible you have missed a setting, such as the mute switch.

The CS50 has both transmit (how you are heard) and Receive (how you hear) controls on the unit itself.

The Master Transmit controls are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting. You can fine tune this setting with the Plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the base that are above and below the picture of the microphone.

The Master Receive setting is on the back of the base (below the picture of the microphone) there is a 1234 switch 1 being the highest setting and 4 being the lowest setting. You can fine tune this setting by using the volume control on the headset itself. This is the rocker volume wheel on the back of the headset (opposite of the microphone).

The headset volume control also doubles as a mute switch if you press it in, instead of rocking it back and forth.

There are also configuration settings on the left hand side of the base. This is a dark grey dial with a 1234 on it. There are notches to the right of this dial. Whatever number is lined up with the notches it what setting you are on.
This needs to be set to the clearest setting.

There is a silver button on the headset itself which is your “Talk button”. This is what you press to use the headset and or transfer the call from the headset back to the hand receiver.

There is also a switch on the right hand side of the base which is your the IntelliStand feature.

When the CS50 is used in conjunction with the HL10 handset lifer you can enable the IntelliStand feature.

The IntelliStand feature senses when the headset has been removed or placed into the CS50 base unit which automatically activates the Handset Lifter and enabling headset/handset mode to answer or end the call.

There is a switch towards the bottom on the right side of the base unit that will switch the IntelliStand feature On and Off.

My headset has a constant buzzing in earpiece. Even when no line is selected. Can't hear dial tone.


On left hand side of base unit dial has to be set with the number 1 in the 3'oclock position. On the right hand side of base unit there is a switch set it to the 1 position. On the headset press and hold the vol - and vol + and pick up call buttons at the same time until an orange light on headset blinks a few times.

Is it compatible with an IPCC nortel network phone?


I am personally using a Plantronics CS60 wireless headset with a Meridian Nortel M2006 Phone and it works just fine.

Here is how you can setup the Plantronics CS60 wireless headset.

NOTE: Before setting up the system make sure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the "_" position and NOT the "=" position.

The headset and the base unit are supplied subscribed to each other. However, if you wish to use a replacement headset with the base unit (or if you lose your connection to the base unit), then you must re-subscribe as follows:

1. Return the headset to the charging base.

2. Press and hold both the + and - buttons on the back of the charging base until the red light on the front of the base starts to flash.

3. Let go of both buttons. The red light should continue to flash.

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.

Plantronics CS55 requires lifting handset on phone


Please note that your hand receiver has to be off the hook when using the headset.

This is correct, additionally you can use a handset lifter accessory, such as the HL1 or HL10.

Subscribing Headset to Base:

The headset and the base unit are supplied subscribed to each other. However, if you wish to use a replacement headset with the base unit (or if you lose your connection to the base unit), then you must re-subscribe as follows:

1. Return the headset to the charging base.

2. Press and hold both the + and - buttons on the back of the charging base until the red light on the front of the base starts to flash.

3. Let go of both buttons. The red light should continue to flash.

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.

Plantronics cs50 head set with lifter has STATIC


Try a system reset:
1.  Lift the headset off of the charging cradle, but make sure the headset is turned off.  It will be off if the green light on the front of the base is not lit.  If it's not, push the call answer button once to turn it off.
2.  Push the call answer button and the mute button at the same time and hold them down.  The mute button is the black little wheel at the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight down and hold it while holding the call answer button.  A green light on the headset will flash for 2 series of flashes.  Wait until the end of the second series then let go of both buttons.
3.  Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back up and try to use it.  If this doesn't work, repeat one more time and then disconnect the power from the base and plug it back in.

Headset has static


Perform a reset on the headset.  Hold down the mute button (the dial on the back of the headset needs to be pushed straight in), and at the same time hold down the call answer button until you see the green light on the headset blink a few times.  Release both the mute button and the call answer button.  See if it works now.  If it doesn't, try a re-subscription (should be available in the manual).
