I bought a headset for my friend for his cordless phone for Xmas from The Source by Circuit City and the connector fits, but there is no sound or anything coming through the headset. Are there specific headsets or connectors for certain cordless phones? Is there something that we should be doing to make this headset work? Don't we just plug it into the phone? My friend is not well and cannot hold the phone by his ear on his shoulder for very long and really needs a headset. Please help steer me in the right direction on CNET. Thank you so much.

the wireless only works with their own make of phones. Is this phone and headset uses bluetooth and using the same standard (I forgot the standard now)..then it should work. How about give us the make and model of the headphone.

I bought the headset at The Source and don't have the packaging now. This person does not have speakerphone or hands free on his phone. The guy at The Source said that the headset would work on anyone's brand of phone, but this is not true, obviously. Thanks for your help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
