Why Your Stealth 700 Keeps Turning Off

You may find that your headset occasionally turns off on its own. Usually, this is because there is a timer that detects game or mic audio. If there is a long enough time to detect no audio, it automatically goes into shut-off mode. You should hear a warning before it does this to let you know a shutdown is happening. 

Another reason your headset turns off randomly could be that you have too many apps running simultaneously. Some applications can cause interference with the connection, and some devices limit the number of applications that can run all at once. Limit the number of applications running, even if they are running in the background, and see if your headset works correctly. 

How to Fix a Stealth 700 Headset that Isn’t Charging

It may be that you can’t turn on your headset because it isn’t charging correctly. If this is the case, you can try:

  • Check that the charging cable or charge port doesn’t have damage. Lightly blow out any debris or dust that might be there and look at the pins to see if any are bent.
  • Try a different but compatible charging cable. It may be that the cable you are currently trying to use has something wrong with it. 

If you find something wrong with the charge port or the battery, you will have to buy a new headset as neither of those parts has an easy fix. There are ways for you to replace the battery if you want to, but it is easier and cheaper to look for a new set in most cases.
