TROUBLESHOOTING

Now that your headset is set up, does everything work correctly and sound great? If not, refer to the suggestions below to help troubleshoot.

NO DIAL TONE

After making a test call, did you NOT hear a dial tone? If not, try the troubleshooting ideas below to help resolve this.

  1. Double check to make sure that you have everything connected as per the setup instructions. 
  2. Make sure that ALL cords are pushed in fully and have "snapped" into place. 
  3. Locate the compatibility switch and while on a call, move it to other positions until you hear a dial tone.

STATIC

When making your test call, you may hear static. If you do, try the troubleshooting tips below.

  1. Locate the compatibility switch on the bottom of the charging base and while on a call, move it to the other positions until the static is cleared up.
  2. Try removing the battery from the headset earpiece. Once removed, wait for a minute and then reinstall the battery.
  3. If items 1 and 2 above don't work, try removing the battery and unplugging the power from the wall outlet. Wait for a minute and then reinstall the battery, place it into the charging cradle and then plug the AC Power Adapter back into the wall power outlet.

ECHO

If you hear echo when on a call, the steps below should help to resolve this condition.

  1. Locate the volume adjustment on your TELEPHONE. Set this to about the midpoint (half way between high and low). 
  2. On the bottom of the charging base, locate the red dial that has an icon of a microphone. Set this on the number 2. 
  3. Make sure that the microphone tip is approximately two fingers width from the corner of your mouth. Having the microphone too close to your mouth can cause sound quality issues. 
  4. Try resetting your headset. This is done by removing the battery from the headset earpiece, unplugging the AC Power Adapter from the wall power outlet and then waiting

For a minute. Then, reinstall the battery, place the headset into the charging base and then plug the AC Power Adapter back into the wall outlet.
