Jabra bt160 Bought the Jabra BT160 wireless headset. I charged it and per the instructions the solid blue light went off which is supposed to mean it is fully charged. Unfortunately, the headset will not turn on. Is there anything that can be done?

    Mine won't even charge! i just got it yesterday and go to plug it in...the light flashes once and that's it. No solid LED light.....ugh.

    The same problem - charging light goes on for about 10 seconds. Leave it plugged in longer, and no matter how long it will not work. Jabra has replaced the unit four times and each one does the same thing! It's beyond belief!

I can not get the headset to turn on.


If I read everything correctly in the manual I believe the light only stays on when the device is in the pairing mode. If the light flashes every second, the headset is on a call, if the light flashed every three seconds, it is in standby mode.
Standby mode: is when the Jabra BT160 is passively waiting for a call. When you 'end' a call on your mobile phone, the headset goes into standby mode.

Make sure your phone is bluetooth equipped.

You must first successfully pair the headset with your phone. The manual shows you how.....
1. Put the headset in pairing mode Make sure that the headset is on. Press the answer/end button and press the volume up (+) button at the same time, until a solid blue light comes on.
2. Set your Bluetooth phone to 'discover' the Jabra BT160 Follow your phone's instruction guide. This usually involves going to a 'setup,' 'connect' or 'Bluetooth' menu on your phone and selecting the option to 'discover' or 'add' a Bluetooth device.
3. Your phone will find the Jabra BT160 Your phone then asks if you want to pair with it. Accept by pressing 'Yes' or 'OK' on the phone and confirm with the passkey or PIN3 = 0000 (4 zeros). Your phone will confirm when pairing is complete. In case of unsuccessful pairing, repeat steps 1 to 3.

CHARGING My Jabra bt160


I think something's goofy with these headsets. I bought 2 of them recently (one for me and one for my g/f). Within a week or so, she told me hers just "died" - and she couldn't get the blue light to come on when it was plugged into the charger.

Mine acted dead too, just a day or so before she told me about her problem. On mine, I think I just held down the "volume down" button and the main button at the same time for about 15 seconds and it appeared to "reset" it. That apparently didn't work for hers, but oddly enough - after a few days, we plugged it into my charger and it started working again!

My Jabra BT160 won't connect to my Nokia 6103 why?


hold the on/off button and the + button for 2 min. If you fail at the first time. Try again, until you see the blue solid light. Search again in your phone, you should see Jabra bt160. Enter 0000 at the passcode. Good luck
