I've bought the headset last December, but since I've been travelling around a bit, I haven't been able to take it out of the box til this Sept!!! It flickers a blue light once when I plug the charger, but then it does nothing. No lights, nothing at all. Please help me! I've tried keeping it plugged for a day, but to no avail.
I found that if I removed the ear pad on the charging side of the earphones, and accessed the circuit board, that the connection from the battery to the plug was lose. I plugged the charger into the headphones, while I attempted to make the connection more secure or tight. When the red light came on and stayed on I put everything back together. Whala! The unit started to take a charge and has worked ever since. This maybe a common problem for this unit.

Since you bought it last month I am hoping you have a warranty on the
headset. It may be that it is just a bad battery, and the batteries are not
replaceable. Sometimes that happens straight out of the package, but not
very often. It could have been due to heat or cold damage. Check your
connections again, maybe try a different outlet, and is it plugged into the headset
It's '0000' (four zeros), but if it has already been paired to your phone, you don't have to perform the pairing process again. You just have to turn both your phone's bluetooth radio and your headset on. If the link is not automatically done (some phones show a headset icon on the top bar to indicate the link is done), try to press the headset's MFB. If you have to press the button to restablish the link, it might happen that the voice path gets connected (you can hear it on your headset). This would draw the headset's battery pretty fast. To avoid it, either press the button again, or just by turning your phone off (put it in stand-by mode, of course) could do the trick.
Just my 2 cents...
I am sorry to say but the Plantronics are cheap and not well made. Sounds like you might have a weak battery and because of that it wont have enough charge to turn on. I myself have gone through many and now spent a little bit more and got a better earpiece.
A fully charged battery should last up to 4 hours if it's being used A LOT! But I lost mine and it was in standby mode for pretty close to 3 days and when I found it I was still able to use for quite awhile before charging it again.. So yes, it sounds like it had a weak battery..
