My jabra BT160 won't charge

I have a BT 160 that I've used for over 2 years. I purchased 4 others for my family and they have all worked fine. A few months ago I purchased 4 more to have for backup. I recently opened a new one and when I plugged it in to charge it blinked on and off and stayed off. I left it to charge and it won't charge. I tried 2 more and they won't either. Is there anyone that knows what to do?

I had the same problem with mine. the problem is with the completely empty battery.
solution is to disassemble it and force charge the battery inside.
you have to cut any usb cable leaving the side which connects to pc and remove the insolation from red and black wires. connect them for few seconds to battery soldering points on jabra board (red to red, black to black, sometimes you have to scratch the solder a bit if it oxidized a bit). once you see the light you can start charging it normally.

You can use ANY USB cable, doesn't have to be one that came with the headset. Just cut off the end opposite the end that plugs into the computer. Separate the RED and BLACK wires, and while the cable is plugged into the computer, attach those wires to the red and black wires in the headset. Hold for a couple sec, then you should be able to charge it normally. Don't forget to remove the two screws under the plastic cover to get to the inside.

How can you "force charge" it? my battery doesn't come with a computer outlet; instead you have to connect it directly to the wall, and it doesn't do anything! it has all the same problems you mentioned above, i need help!!!

CHARGING My Jabra bt160


I think something's goofy with these headsets. I bought 2 of them recently (one for me and one for my g/f). Within a week or so, she told me hers just "died" - and she couldn't get the blue light to come on when it was plugged into the charger.

Mine acted dead too, just a day or so before she told me about her problem. On mine, I think I just held down the "volume down" button and the main button at the same time for about 15 seconds and it appeared to "reset" it. That apparently didn't work for hers, but oddly enough - after a few days, we plugged it into my charger and it started working again!

My Jabra BT160 won't connect to my Nokia 6103 why?


hold the on/off button and the + button for 2 min. If you fail at the first time. Try again, until you see the blue solid light. Search again in your phone, you should see Jabra bt160. Enter 0000 at the passcode. Good luck
