    I have the same problem on mine, and the blue light never turns on. This is my second unit. The first one had a similar non-charging problem with no blue light ever. That's 0 out of 2 so far for me. A third one is coming. If that one doesn't work I guess I'll have to get a new phone with bluetooth built in. But I like the one I have and I just got a new battery. Wah!

    Same thing for me with a purchase I just received today. Called Jabra support and they said this means the device is deffective.

    Hello, and i have just the f... same problem. Was buying 3 of the items direct in USA (the A210's are not findable here i Europe). After connecting to the charger, the red light turns on for about 3 sec. then it turns off. i am not able to turn the item on. So, i bougth 3 and two are not working. Did not check the third one. will see... I think they have been to long not charged in the shop, so the batteries went totally down and get a damage... Hopefully it can be changed somehow. Will not send the items back to USA for replacing... Postal fees are to high...do not buy this item!!!!

    Same problem. I exchanged 3 times and the shipping charge is more than the cost of the device already. NEVER buy Jabra products again!!!!

I had not used my A210 in a couple years, and when I needed it again now, I TOO GOT THIS SAME EXACT SYMPTOM: where it would light red (charging) only for 2 or 3 seconds, and then be off. Hours on the charger and no charging or difference. I tried plugging it in a few hundred times to see if it would "jump start" for the 3 seconds to add up, no luck. I WAS VERY GLAD to read MightyFrosty could change something inside and get it working. I followed his advice up to "removing the tiny circuitboard on the tiny battery and resoldering". Instead (got the case open with a razor blade, gently) I removed the amber tape that wraps the battery/circuitboard assembly and tried first "jumping" the red to the "+", nothing~ but then jumping the black to the "-" the RED LIGHT came on and STAYED ON! (but only while "jumped". Better yet after some 20 minutes of "jumpered" charging, the RED LIGHT STAYED ON even when I removed the tiny jumper~! (a tiny wire is all, bent to touch the black wire solder spot and the "-" battery lead). so IT APPEARS it CAN CHARGE PROPERLY on its own once the battery has a little juice in it! It is charging completely normally now (red light solid, no jumpers, and with no cuts or circuit removals!). I believe I can reassemble it all tomorrow and have a non-modified operational bluetooth Jabra! Thank you MightyFrosty and good luck to all!

    I caught "-" on a long "hairpin" copper strip along the "on/off" side of the board.
    It took me awhile to unwrap the battery and find the thin foil battery connectors.
    They are marked " " and "-" on the bottom of the battery.

I had the same issue. So what I did was get a small screwdriver, opened the A210 case removed the battery. You will notice orange tape (remove it) then attached to the battery is a small board (the defective part) . Cut away the board, then you will need to solder the wires back to the thin metal film leads. And voila it will now charge, make sure to never let it charge for more than 2 hours. Do this at your own risk. Of course this will void the warranty.

Kev,
This worked for me as well. I was able to take the jumper off after about 5 minutes and the red light stayed on. After about 40 minutes it would turn on. We'll see how well it holds a charge.
It seems like a really un-smart design, where a dead battery can't be recharged... because it's dead.

    Update- I hurt the snap together features of mine and need electrical tape for it now, but it took the charge and works fine now. By the way, amazing range with this thing tested with an LG cheap earpiece. 200+ feet for listening to MP3s.

Same story. After not using my A210 for years it would not charge. Kev in Cal's advice. I opened the case "carefully" with a razor blade. cut the orange tape off of the battery/overcharge board. made a tiny jumper out of a piece of cut wire. I plugged the charger into the device, held the jumper on the "-" post on the overcharge board and the other end onto the "-" tab of the battery. The Red charge light came on! Held this position for about 4 to 5 minutes. After that time, pulled back my jumper and charging continued. Put the case back together and it's working perfectly. Thanks guys and thanks FixYa site. Great Stuff.

Thanks to all who have posted their solutions. Just to shed some light on this problem, the little circut board in the battery is a overcharge/under charge protection circut By removing the board you can now overcharge the battery and if you do- ?smoke?. The module I have has the battery puffed. that means that the battery is damaged. I got this module to interface with a two-way radio and I plan to power it remotely so I'm removing the battery. This fix is not for the faint at heart and requires soldering fine wires. If you like doing things like this- go for it.

The Jabra A210 keeps dropping the connection between the devices.


My solution is to connect the jabra audio jack to the speaker output of my receiver. Jabra need it to detect a source. If the connection to the source is cut, jabra waits around 30 seconds and if nothing happend jabra stop the transmittion. I hope that helps.

hi,
you have to connect the jabra audio jack to the audio source, to the speaker output of your receiver for example. If jabra detects the source it will work. If you cut the connection, jabra watch for a while if something happend and than stops the transmittion. Hope that helps

Jabra JX10 Bluetooth doesn't/won't charge


Not sure if this is a solution or if it occurred by chance. Like many on here, I put my Jabra JX10 away for a few months while not using it. The time come for me to need it once again and found that it was dead. Made an attempt to charge the unit with negative results. The unit would only show a green "charged" LED indicator as if the unit was fully charged. I tried plugging the unit into the charger multiple times, and took the cradle out of the loop and just used the AC cord alone. Still with the same results. I pulled the outside cover off (slowly), to be sure not to break the small fragile tabs that hold it in place. The battery takes up majority of the space. Removed the battery but DID NOT disconnect from unit. Plugged the charge cord into the unit and immediately got a red LED charging indicator. While charging, placed the battery back inside and put the outside cover back on. The unit continued to charge for a little over an hour before the green LED "charged" indicator came on. I used the unit throughout the day to test it with no problems. Not sure what removing the battery from unit did, especially when it was not disconnected, but it worked. I hope to see similar results.

BT500V won't charge


This happens because the battery gets too low to take a charge.
To jump start the headset, connect the power lead and the LED will be flashing red. now press and hold the power and BT pairing buttons. The LED should change to solid red.
I found that holding both buttons for about 3-5 minutes allowed the battery to get enough charge to start charging and you can release the buttons and the headset will continue to charge.
If the led starts flashing again, just repeat the process again.
Hope this helps...

Jabra a 210 adapter not charging


I contacted Jabra and they said this problem is due to a bad internal battery. There is nothing that can be done to fix it. So I returned it to the guy who sold it to me and got my money back. Purchased another from a different vendor, and this one works great. That's the only solution!
