Smartphone/Handset Won’t Turn On or Off

Please keep the Smartphone/Handset powered on. There’s usually no need to turn it off except when troubleshooting.

  • Try pressing and holding the Power button on the Smartphone/Handset until you see activity on the screen, then let go. See the Quick Start Guide included in the kit for the location of the Power button.

  • If it still will not turn on or off, call the CMC at 877-996-5553.

Smartphone/Handset Not Holding Charge

After a full recharge, the Smartphone/Handset should remain charged for 8-12 hours. Please note, however, that battery life will be shortened in both the Smartphone/Handset and the Pendant when the two devices are not within close proximity to each other.

  • Make sure the Smartphone/Handset is being charged daily for at least four hours.

  • Keep the Smartphone/Handset and the Pendant within close proximity (10 feet) of each other to prevent loss of Bluetooth connection, which can severely impact battery life.

  • Make sure the electrical outlet where the charger is plugged is working and is not controlled by a switch that’s turned off.

  • Try plugging the charger into a different outlet.

  • Make sure the charger is inserted into the Smartphone properly.

  • If you continue to experience this issue, call the CMC at 877-996-5553.

Pendant Beeping

  • The Pendant will beep when the Record/Send button is pressed either on the Pendant or on the Smartphone.

  • The Pendant will beep when the On/Off button is pressed.

  • The Pendant will beep every 5-15 minutes when its “AA” battery is low. Change the battery. (Note: If the battery is too low, the Pendant will make a solid beeping tone three times and turn off. After replacing the battery, remember to turn the Pendant back on.)
