    I have the same issue.

  • chaz4 Feb 08, 2008

    I plugged it in to charge and the red light came on. After some hours, I looked and the light was off. Now there's no way to either charge it or turn it on.

    This is the same problem I'm having. I plug it in and the LED flashes red then green then off completely. It won't turn on and it doesn't appear to be charging.

    worked great one day, now no lights and won't turn on.

    I'm in the same boat. Just got the headset and don't know if it's charging or not. No LED indication whatsoever. I've tried difference wall sockets, the PC. Nothing.

    This is the 2nd BT500 bluetooth that I have had that all of a sudden, inexpliciably, will not turn on even after lengthy charging. No light will come on when hooked up to charge.

    Apparently the saga continues. Have same experience as others have posted. Plug it in, LED quickly flashes from red to green, then off completely. After more than 4 hours of charging, no signs of a charged battery (LED not lit), and none of the switches seem to activate it. Compared the connection carefully with the manual diagram to ensure it's connected in the right direction, so I've ruled out that as the cause. No further clue as to what's wrong or how to correct it.

    Same problem! Paid up for this one and still use my cheap H500 by Motorola simply because it works.

  • racer_rr Apr 27, 2008

    Same. LED red to green to black.

    I found info elsewhere that if you plug the ac adapter in wrong to headset it will fry the battery. The adapter is not very fool-proof.

    Same problem here.  Piece of ****.

Hello all...

I had this exact same problem, and had a couple hours on my hands to kill, so I opened up my headset. ***PLEASE NOTE - This WILL void your warranty*** Once the headset was open, I took a quick look around, and noticed that one of the leads that attach the rechargable battery to the little circuit board was not connected. Being somewhat handy, I was able to use my soldering iron to re-attach the lead from the battery to the PCB. I plugged the unit into the charger to verify, then carefully put everything back together. A little dab of superglue in the joint above the volume controls, and my headset now works great! Be careful when putting the unit back together, as the first time I re-assembled it, the lead came off, and I had to take it all apart and re-solder it. The circuit board will move out of the way slightly (pulls away from the case) in order to give a better angle to solder the lead. It does not fully detach though, so be careful. In total, it took about 30 minutes of my time, which is way cheaper than a new headset =)

I opened mine using a knife under the blue part, you CAREFULLY pry the blue off with it's adhesive, then you are left with two T6 torx screws, you remove those and careful not to lose the volume buttons. Then the main circuit board is all one piece and comes out easily.

Cheers.

I had a very similar problem. Your headset is most likely defective. Call Jabra at Jabra.com and they'll replace it for you if you still have the receipt where you bought it from.

I have a Sennheiser MM100 Bluetooth headphones that has stopped responding. It will not turn on/off and the LED light is blinking a continuous blue. How do I get it to function again?


Found this online. Hope it helps you out.

Switching the headset on
To switch the headset on:
Press and hold the Play/Pause button for 2 seconds.
An ascending confirmation beep is heard in the headset and the LED indicates the current operating mode. Flashing in blue indicates that the battery charge status is OK; flashing in red indicates a low
battery (see page 6).
The LED flashes several times every second:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices and tries to connect to one of these devices.
The LED flashes slowly (once every second):
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is no current connection because the
Bluetooth device is switched off or out of range.
The LED flashes once every 3 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is neither an audio transmission nor an active call.
The LED is glowing slowly every 4 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices, a sound file is received via A2DP and played back or
paused.
The LED flashes once every second:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices and there is currently an active call.
If you switch on the headset and keep the Play/Pause button pressed for 5 seconds, the headset will go into pairing mode (see ?Pairing the headset? on page 9).
The LED flashes alternatingly in red and blue for up to 60 seconds:
The headset is not yet paired to any Bluetooth device. Pair it as described under ?Pairing the headset? on page 9.
