Jabra bt250v Indicator light doesn't remain on...

I received a set of the jabra headsets and discovered that the indicator light doesn't stay on while charging. It flashes on for a split second once piece is inserted...and after unit is left alone for a time to charge, the unit won't power on. Is it the charger or the Jabra bt250v? Thanks for your help!

    Same problem here?

  • Chrissyace May 08, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem. Does the headset have a battery on the inside of it that needs replacing? I have used it in the past and had no issues with charging but after a years in the cupboard it now does the same thing flashes once and then nothing. Does anyone know if it has to have a replacement battery in the headset. Perhaps that's why as it's fairly old now.?????

I have just repaired my bt250 with this problem, i hadn't used it for around 2 years and when i put it on charge just got i flash of blue led. the fix was to "jumpstart it" the headset needs to se some sort of battery voltage to start the charging process, i stripped mine right down but that was just to fiddley. IF YOU DO THIS IT WILL BE ENTIRLEY AT YOUR OWN RISK AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF YOU TRASH YOUR OTHERWISE USELESS HEADSET. ok all you need to do is very carefully remove back cover (undo 1 screw and ease it apart). be very carefull as there are delicate wires inside. lift the inner part out slowly and you will see the battery.it has some orange tape around the end and there is a small circuit board attached to it with a small red wire and a small black wire. look at the battery and you will see under the orange tape there are to larger tags.these are the main battery terminals, peel back the orange tape just until the tags are slightly exposed. now you need to solder a wire to each of them and DON'T TOUCH THEM TOGETHER. on the battery it says which tag is + and which is - make sure you mark your wires or get red and black ones. now i used the lead from the charger. look at it . it has a hole in the center of the pin that is the + so put the + wire in there. if you are not sure use a volt meter. now touch the - wire to the outer metal of the connector that is the - point on the charger connector. hold this for around 2 mins but no more. as the out put of the connector is 6.2v and the battery is only 3.7v the battery will get warm. if the battery is getting too hot in under 2 mins then take of charge. when you have done that and taken off the connector i recommend to use a volt meter and just put it on the battery wires you soldered on to check battery voltage. as long as it reads you should be ok. de solder your wires from the tags and rebuild headset then try and charge it. this worked for me. i am no electronics expert i just like to mess with broken stuff so i know it seems a bit dodgy to connect like this but i had nothing to lose and it worked.

  • krix003 Oct 18, 2010

    Bang on mate ,
    stripped two ends of the wire twist that came wrapped around charging lead .
    twisted end round outer of charging adapter and pushed other end through yellow plastic onto - of battery connection ,
    then got sowing needle in inside connection of adapter and poked the pin end through yellow tinted plastic against positive connector for ten seconds
    held headset together and slid back in charger and blue light stayed on
    so reassembled and works superb

    Fantastic solution. Even better than using solder - just insert a pin into the ve centre of the AC adapter and use this to touch the ve battery terminal, whilst holding the -ve outer against the -ve terminal; works a treat.

  • dididocky Jun 27, 2011

    its been 3 years since i done this and to be honest i can't remeber to much without looking at another headset but mine is gone now, you should be able to see the gold looking tabs on the battery and the markings + - are small next to the tabs if you can see through the tape i cant remember but would think there are 2 wires on the battery 1 black 1 red, red is + black - seems its best not to solder solder as i did, read the comments and there are aa few tips there that othres have done to do it. just remember hold wires on for 2 min max probably not need that long

I confirmed with Jabra that the headset usses a non-standard battery with integral circuitry, and of course not offered as a replacement part. The best solution is to not purchase products from a manufacturer that sells devices that are known to contain such engineering constraints that limit the product life. As they say, "You buy junk, you get junk."

I was looking for a solution for a similar problem... The circuit on the internal battery has an issue and I cannot measure the voltage through it correctly. The battery reads 3,55 V, while the circuit reads 0,55 V. So, I have the same problem as above then... A blue flash and nothing else, no charge... I am going to remove the circuit of the battery and connect it directly to the charger pins. I believe this will not cause any issues. At least, I will be able to charge the headset this way. I will post once more should this method fails.

Thanks, this helped a lot. My BT250 would not charge. Blue light was steady and flickering, but nothing. I opened up the BT250, dismanteld the battery. I measured 0,34v. So I used some old wires, connected them to the charger and jumpstarted the battery on the larger terminals (flip the circuit board over) for 1 minute. I then measured 3,4v. So no need to solder anything. Repackaged everything and hooked up the charger. BT250 will now turn on and off as usual.

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.

Go here for a copy of the owners manual....

My Jabra headset won't pair with my phone--my phone can't "discover" the headset. The headset is charged and when it is turned on, it blinks three times in a row


Assuming you're talking about the Jabra BT2050 headset press and hold the center (round) button for at least 10 seconds; light will stay solid entering the pairing mode. Follow instructions on your phone.

An old headset I had would flash blue and orange when it was in discover mode, ( so the cell phone would find it to pair it up). This jabra I have will not go there. My cell phone just says cannot find...


Hello friend,
First, make sure that your headset is charged and then press and hold the "Answer/end" button until that the light becomes blue solid. at this time you can do a search on your phone to discover bluetooth devices.
Here is the link to download the user manual for more information:
http://www.jabra.com/sites/Jabra/GNimages/Products/WirelessHeadset/BT350/Documents/BT350_UM_NA_EN_491.pdf
if the device doesn't light on at all, you may need to try with another charger because in this the device is not charged at all.

Jabra red light of death


seeing the red light tells you that the jabra isn't fried or shorted and that there is life but there is a problem, the red light isn't blue when it should be. so have you read the directions your ear piece came with when you first bought it?... hold the on button until you see the blue light stays on.(blue light will flash fast then slow then come to a complete stop and stay on) once blue light stays on that should mean you can now find the ear piece on your cell phone to link up. if problem still isn't fixed then you might as well buy a new one.
