It sounds like you may have a broken wire inside. I would inspect the circuit board on the left side of the earpiece first. Look for shorts, broken wires or anything that looks burnt. You can use a multi meter to make sure the wires in the neck band are not broken. Here is the video showing how to open it up: LG Tone HBS700 730 repair mod and upgrade
1 could be blown bulbs
2 could be a shorting wire
3 a faulty wire
4 the plugs need cleaning
5 try following the wires from the start to the end and look for any damage and if found broken bits or broken plastic if its broken then cut the broken bit off then strip then put choc blocks on and split bits tape with electrical tape and make sure all stripped bits and broken bit are covered properly
You can try to strip a little bit of the jacket off the wires and twist them together securely. Then use a little bit of electrical tape to wrap the bare wire. After, you can tape the head piece back together...... or you could buy some new headphones.
I just dealt with one of these last month, its a ten minute fix if you have a soldering iron. The wire gets strained inside, they didn't allow enough slack in the wire for the movement of the earpieces. A quick resolder of the broken connection and a dab of hot glue to keep it from moving was all it took. Cost of repair was zero.
Carefully strip back the outer insulation you should see different color coded wires just carefully strip the wires back to make a condictor connection and match them by color and use electrical tape to insulate them once tied together . If the wires aren't color coded find an old walkman plug the headset into it and just try different combinations until you figure out the wiring.
If the wires are open or the connections are visibly broken then the connections can be mended. But if there is fault in the earpieces then I suggest that cost a new one must be checked before you think of getting this repaired.
I've had this happen twice with Logitech headsets and believe it has to do with the cheap/fine wire they use in the cables. I suspect that a good tug on the cable will snap the wire or some other internal connection.
Your best long term fix will be to solder the wires together then tape them individually and finally tape the whole thing. Second choice will be to use crimp (**** splice) connections and then tape. Last choice will be just twisting stripped wires together and tape everything.
Whats most likely wrong with your HS850 is the connect button on the front of the headset (the larger oval chrome one with an inlay of a traditional phone handset on it)is stuck down. To repair this you will hold the hand set and pull up on lanyard attach point firmly. (This facia is held on by double sided tape). After pulling the facia you need to purchase or borrow a T-6 Torx bit to remove the screw that holds the headset together. Once you get to the circuit board you will see what the button and spring assembly are (all is is a round piece of foil and the "spring" is a piece of tape using tension to pull the foil up!) Reset the piece of tape so it does not rest on the board and reassemble that headset. Enjoy your HS-850
