Question about Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Consumer Headphones

1 Answer

Red light flickers for a few seconds on Bose headphones. They have been charged overnight, and were working well yesterday? I've cleaned the removable plug, and if I jiggle them sometimes they'll connect for 2 seconds then nothing. Any thoughts?

How old are they? It seems like 3 years is the life expectancy for any electronics these days whether it be notebooks, mp3's etc. Someone said call Bose and they will send you new ones for $75. Mine are doing the same exact thing yours are. Im calling tomorrow!

Hi. I just purchased the insignia digital wireless headphones for my boyfriend and the headphones won't charge properly. It says to put the on the dock station and the red light will stay on(up to 4 hours)...


If the red light is on for such a short period of time, it probably means that the headphones are charged. The red light will flash for a long time and then turn green only when you charge on the dock headphones that need charging. I suggest to try to use them without charging them and see if the headphones work.

Why does my kinivo bth220 headphones have a flashing red light on them no matter how long i charge them and they will not turn on


The batteries won't charge. You might want to google around for replacement batteries.

First I'd try a factory reset. PRess the +, - and multifunction button for 6 seconds until the blue light flashes and it shuts off. When you turn them on next, it's in pairing mode and try again.

I love my Bose Soundlink Mini 2. But, I faced a few issues sometimes.

Speaker not turning ONSpeaker not charging with the battery LED blinking.Speaker not getting connected to the bluetooth devices.
But all were fixed by reading through the Manual a bit. To help others, I actually made a video, to show some troubleshooting tips for the Bose Soundlink Mini 2. Checkout the video, if your speaker is not turning ON / not charging / bluetooth not getting connected:

This seems like a very common issue for the soundlink mini 2. This is due to a firmware bug. Gets foxed with a hard reset.Check the video for details and other trouble shooting tips.

Plantronics audio 995H wireless headset not charging when plugged into computer. It does not show a red light for charging. When turned on it stays blue for several seconds then flickers red for 2 or


38cafd7a-6060-4717-bc4f-b4db91cc266a.jpgI recently fixed my 955 headphones... it's probably not going to be attempted by most folks, but it saved a great set of headphones from being tossed and replaced.

Basically you need to remove the right side padding and take out the 3 screws. This gets you access to the battery. The battery is a standard 3.6V lithium battery. Pretty much the same that is in most cell phones and many small toys. You can simply replace the battery with something like:

Or... here's what I did... add a lithium USB charger to the battery.

Now, if the battery dies I can plug it into USB and the phone will work while it charges.

Bose QC 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones the red light is on. Should there be a green light if they are working?


No green light for QC2, just red. If it's constant the battery is charged, powering the noise cancellation, and, if connected to an audio device, conducting sound. If the red light is blinking, the battery is losing its charge.

Bose Headphones only works on left side.


Have same problem. Play with the plug in the socket. I'll bet it you can occasionally get both working. Not a solution since it probably won't stay working. I have an old plug and it fails too. I'm afraid they did't make their plugs to the right tolerances. Used to work once. Annoying for this expensive a headphone.

Battery charger flashing red light


Clean contact points of both battery and charger with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. This solved my problem with blinking lights and not charging of the batteries.
