Question about Jabra BT150 Wireless Headset
I've never had a problem with my Jabra BT150 before. I really love it. But I lost the charger to it almost a year ago. I finally bought a replacement charger, and now it has a steady red light, with the blinking blue (standby) coming through on top of it. I don't know what the steady red light means..or how to get rid of it! I know that blinking red means that it means to be charged. Mind you, the bluetooth is working on calls; but the light MUST be mean something! Can someone help?! Thanks so much!
From the sounds of this.. It's all due to bad keying of the polarized charging plug. The solid red light PROBABLY means you're battery is pretty darn dead. It'll need a new battery(not worth the cost imho. get a new jabra, and be happy once again) At a certain low voltage, the red light starts blinking. when it drops below the preset threshold, it will shut off completely. If it sits too long at this discharged rate, the battry WILL self-terminate. If the voltage drops below a certain level, it's ruined. Also note, most Li-ion cells will only last a few years. 2-3 years of "full power" is usual. Mine's 2 years old(steady usage), and showing signs of it's age.
"My red light won't go off even though I charged it all night.
Also, a small piece of plastic came off the charge opening. I don't know if this is will pose a problem to the use of the Jabra BT150."
This is probably the most telling bit of information. It means you DID plug the charger in upside down. It will NEVER charge in that configuration, as it is supplying power to the completely wrong pins. If the battery was good to start with, it shouldn't hurt the headset, but never know. I have accidentily plugged it in backwards for a couple min before noticing, with no ill efect, but YMMV.
"Doesn't anyone from the Jabra manufacturer check this site?"
NO (especially not for discontinued products)
