Question about Bose QuietComfort 2 Consumer Headphones

4 Answers

No Sound/No Power

I have a Bose headset Model OC2. I removed a dead AAA battery which was somewhat corroded on the positive terminal. I had not used the headset for 2 or 3 years. Replacing the battery does not get me power or sound. There is no visible damage to the battery compartment. The contacts seem to be ok, but how do I clean them just in case corrosion is the problem. If cleaning doesn't work, what then?

Hello, I see you have a set of headphones that are inoperative. You can take a peice of aluminum foil the heavy duty type and scrub the contacts to clean the terminals.If you have a figernail emery board that will work also. If that doesnt work you will either have a wire corroded into also and you will have to take apart, or either take to a local small radio repair shop and let them repair the wire.Thank you

Why does the myzone headset we purchased not work, as the red light will not turn on?


Not sure how old this unit is but you need to check your battery connections for crud.

If the battery's have been leaking or the terminals are corroded it will not power up. I beleave that unit takes rechargeable batterys.

2008 Tahoe has no power at all lights, engine, bells all dead


First step check the battery and the connections , chevrolet has a common problem with the negative battery terminal getting corroded. Remove the negative terminal and inspect the metal lead in the cable , clean and repair as necessary, with the negative cable removed perform the same inspection on the positive cable. If issue still persists further troubleshooting will be required.

I need replacement batteies for my sony headphones and can not find them


My headphones (after several years) got to where they would go dead in about 1/2 hour. I used Panasonic AAA H8 Ni-MH 630 mAh. They last longer and get much louder than the stock batteries. I was able to remove the old batteries without breaking the holder. They work better than new.

Starter button doesn't work. can't be pushed down so grill won't start. do I need a battery for this part?


When the igniters stop working the backs are corroded. Clean well and reinstall or replace altogether. In the meantime you can use long fireplace matches to light the burner until you are ready to effect repairs.

Your wireless headphone unit requires two rechargeable AAA batteries.
Rechargeable batteries are uncharged when you purchase them. Before
you can use the wireless headphones, the batteries must be charged for
16 hours. Follow these steps to install and charge the batteries.
Installing the Rechargeable Batteries
Take care to follow these steps to correctly install the batteries.
1. On the right headphone, locate the battery compartment (1).
Use the finger depression on the compartment to turn the battery
compartment cover counterclockwise to remove the cover.
2. Insert two AAA rechargeable batteries, carefully following the
markings inside to ensure the batteries are inserted properly, with
the + and - ends in the correct positions.
3. Replace the battery compartment cover.

No Sound/No Power


I used your site to research the problem further. I found an answer which recommended rubbing the suspect terminal lightly with a pencil eraser. It worked! I now have battery power and my headset works fine.
