Re: I receive an error that the BT250 is not powered or...
I have had a BT250v for a few yeasr now (on my third, actually!). This problem would occasionally come up. Delete the profile from your phone, and start the pairing process all over again. I switch mine back and forth between me personall LG cell and my business blackberry. When I go from my cell to the bb, everything is fine, but I need to re-pair to get it back onto my cell.

phone can find it. You can find out how to do this by referring to your

If the Bluetooth check box is not selected, select it to turn Bluetooth on.
Make sure that the headset is discoverable.
Tap Scan for devices.
Your phone will start to scan for Bluetooth devices within range.
When you see the name of your headset displayed in the Bluetooth devices section, tap the name.
Your phone then automatically tries to pair with the headset.
If automatic pairing fails, enter the passcode supplied with your headset.
The pairing and connection status is displayed below the hands-free headset or car kit name in the Bluetooth devices section. When the Bluetooth headset or car kit is connected to your phone, the Bluetooth connected icon
is displayed in the status bar. Depending on the type of headset or car
kit you have connected, you can then start using the headset or car kit
to listen to music and/or make and receive phone calls.
are you using a bluetooth headset? if yes then check whether u have switched on your bluetooth headset & also your phone & bluetooth headset must be reachable, that is, both should be within range as mentioned in your bluetooth headset manual.
You may need to reset your Bluetooth devices. Please follow the steps below:

Go into the Bluetooth menu on your cell phone and follow the cell
phone’s instruction guide for pairing a Bluetooth headset. This
generally involves going into a “devices” or “hands free” menu and
adding a new device. Your phone may ask if you want to pair with the
headset, accept by pressing “yes” or “OK” and confirm with the passkey
or PIN 0000 (4 zeros).

Ensure headset is switched OFF
Press and hold the talk button (big central button on front of headset) until the indicator flashes red & green alternately, then release. Headset now ready for pairing. Note: Headset pairing mode will time out after 5 mins.
To allow phone / pc to "find" the headset, consult your phone / pc bluetooth operating guide on pairing devices.

A pin or password screen will appear, you must enter 0000 and confirm.
When pairing is successful, headset indicator will change to green and flash continuously every 3 seconds.
Pairing is then complete.
It is possible to pair up to two phones with the headset - the most recently paired phone becomes the "primary "phone... only one phone can be connected at a time --> this function only works in Hands-Free profile. If both phones are in range, then the headset will connect to the "primary" phone first.
