Yealink Teams Headset - Restart Headset (device)

The Yealink headsets for Teams may, from time to time, drop their connection to the workstation that they are assigned to. This does not happen often, but we have found that restarting the headset itself corrects the issue and restores the connection between the headset and Teams. This KB article will show you how to restart the device.

Please ensure that your headset is resting on its charging cradle before following the instructions below.

  1. Open the Yealink Software by clicking the desktop icon.
