Plantronics wireless headset no longer beeps/alerts for incoming call.
My Plantronics wireless headset will no longer beep in my ear to alert me to an incoming call on my PC or Macbook Pro via headset OR built in computer speaker. This must be a setting somewhere. RingCentral phone support was not able to figure out this problem and no one in my office with the same systems are having this problem. It's not an issue with the headset.
This happens if I just use the ring central program on my Mac and on my PC. It will not ring through my speakers. Which I tried this to make sure it wasn't an issue with my Plantronics wireless headset. My PC is running Windows 10 and my Macbook Pro is running 10.11.6. I also notice the audio on the PC is choppy when I use it so I mainly use the laptop. Ring Central sent me a link to download
18.104.22.16828 as they think it was a new update that may have been causing the issue sense all of my co workers head sets and computers work fine.
This is indeed an interesting one. Normally I would agree that this sounds like an RC software issue, except that if it were, we'd have thousands of users reporting the problem. What is the model of Plantronics device you were using? And, did you install any Plantronics Hub software? I'm starting to wonder if the Plantronics software is overriding the two settings we've checked above.
If you've installed any Plantronics software let us know what version it is.
Hi Michael, I have some suggestions on things you can do to try and resolve this.
First, try going to the RingCentral for Mac app and toggle the Plantronics Headset option off and then back on. If that doesn't help, next try uninstalling the Plantronics Hub software, you can find instructions on
Plantronics guide for uninstalling Hub software page. If you still experience the issue, try changing the setting in the RingCentral for Mac app to show "Ringer: Plantronics Savi 7xx". If the issue still continues try going to System Preference > Audio > Output/Input and change both of those settings to the Plantronics Savi 7xx.
If you still experience the issue after all this then please open a ticket with us through the
Contact Support page. We may want to get some diagnostic logs from your Mac and look into the problem further.
I reset the hub and downloaded new firmware update. I also totally un-installed the software and re-installed it. It seems to be working fine now. Still not working on the PC but I'm sure I just need to re-install like I did on the Macbook Pro. Thank you guys so much for your help in regards to this issue.
