Headset

This chapter contains instructions on how to use the Headset, including charging
the Battery and connecting to a Bluetooth-enabled cellular phone.
Charging the Battery
The rechargeable battery included with the Headset is not fully charged when new,
and must be recharged before using. Recharging the first time takes approximately
4 hours; afterwards, each full battery recharge will take approximately 2 hours. A
fully charged battery will provide approximately 3 to 4.5 hours of talk time, and
100+ hours of standby time. To recharge the battery:
1. Plug the battery charger into a wall outlet. The green light on the charger will
illuminate.
2. Connect the other end of the battery charger into power port on the bottom
of the Headset. A click is heard when the charger is properly inserted in the
power port, and the red light on the charger will illuminate.
3. When the battery is full, the red light will turn off.
Turning the Headset On/Off
Turning On
To turn the Headset on, press and hold the Large Button for three seconds. Two
short, high-pitched tones will sound, then the blue light on the Headset will illuminate. The Headset is now turned on.
☞
Note: If the Headset’s rechargeable batter is low, the red light on
the Headset will flash.

Actiontec Wireless Bluetooth Headset User Manual
Turning Off
To turn the Headset off, press and hold the Large Button for three seconds. Two
short, low-pitched tones will sound, then the red light will flash. When it stops
flashing, the Headset is turned off.
Pairing the Headset
To use the Headset with a cellular phone, it must be paired with the phone. To do
this:
1. Press the Large Button for 5 seconds. Two high-pitched tones will sound, followed by two more tones, and then the red and blue lights will flash.
2. Initiate the pairing procedure on the Bluetooth-enable cellular phone to pair
with the Headset. Make sure the cellular phone is in discovery mode.
3. Place the Headset one to three feet from the cellular phone.
4. When the cellular phone requests a passkey, enter 1234 (the default PIN of
the Headset). When pairing is successful, the red light will turn off, and the
blue light will illuminate.
If the pairing fails, the Headset will turn off automatically after two minutes.
About Pairing
Pairing is the process of associating Bluetooth devices with each other. When two
devices are paired, they establish a permanent, secure link with each other,
enabling quick access to services provided without having to enter passwords every
time either device is activated.
Paired devices remain paired even when one of the devices is not powered up, the
service connection is stopped or interrupted, or one or both of the devices are
rebooted.

Chapter 2 Using the Headset
Handling Calls
Once the Headset is successfully paired with a cellular phone, you can use it to
make and receive calls. If your cellular phone suppors voice dialing, you can perform this with the Headset.
Making Calls
There are two ways to make a call, using the Headset: keying in the number on the
cellular phone dial pad, or using voice dialing (if the cellular phone supports this
feature).
Using the Dial Pad
To use the dial pad on the cellular phone, dial the phone number. Once the call
is placed, the conversation will be carried by the Headset.
Using Voice Dialing
To use voice dialing, press the Large Buttone until a beep is heard. Say the name
of the person to be called. The call is placed.
Answering/Ending Calls
When an incoming call is received, a beep is heard, and the blue light will flash
quickly. To answer:
1. Press the Large Button.
2. If needed, adjust the volume. Press the Large Button to increase the volume;
press the Small Button to decrease the volume.
3. To end the call, press the Small Button for three seconds, or do nothing. After
10 seconds, the Headset will automatically disconnect.
If the Headset if powered off and an incoming call is received, press the Large
Button for three seconds to answer the call.
☞
Note: Due to the design of some cellular phones, the Headset
may auto-disconnect even if it is powered on, and will not beep
when receiving an incoming call. To reconnect the Headset to the
cellular phone, press the Large Button for one second.

Connecting to a Computer
To connect the Headset to a computer, the computer must be Bluetooth-enabled
(i.e., support Bluetooth internally or have a Bluetooth adapter installed). The computer must support Audio Gateway Profiles.

2. On the computer, open the Bluetooth Configuration screen and doubleclick Find Bluetooth Devices.
☞
Note: The Bluetooth Configuration setup may differ based on
the brand of the Bluetooth adapter you are using.
3. Place the Headset firmly in either ear.

Troubleshooting

This section details problems that may occur when using the Headset, and solutions for them.
The Red Light is flashing. What does this mean?
When only the Red light is flashing, the Headset’s rechargeable battery is running low. Plug the Headset into a wall outlet via the power adapter and recharge
the battery. Full recharge takes approximately two hours.
I charged the Headset’s battery for 20 minutes, but it still doesn’t work.
What can I do?
The Headset’s rechargeable battery must be charged for at least 40 minutes
before it can be used. It is recommended, however, that the battery be charged
for the full two hours.
I plugged the Headset into an electrical socket, but it doesn’t appear to be
recharging. What’s going on?
If the Headset hasn’t been used for a long time, or the battery is nearly empty, it
may take a few minutes for the Red Light to flash and indicate that it is recharging.
I am getting no sound between the Headset and the device it’s connnected
to. What should I do?
Check the following:
• Make sure the Headset and the device have been paired.
• Make sure the Headset is turned on.
• Make sure the Headset and the device are withn working range of
each other.
• If connecting to a cellular phone, make sure it has good signal strength.
• Some cellular phones support only one Bluetooth headset at a time.
Disconnection can occur if more than one Headset is being used.
