When it wont charge, there could be a bad cell on the headset, it may have suffered too many drops, or has been in contact with a lot of moisture.

Try to put the headset in a warm area, perhaps if you have a satellite dish receiver, cable tv receiver, or radio receiver in your house, sit it on top for an hour or two, and let the radiation from those devices dry out any excessive moisture that could corrupt your connections. This will not damage your headset.

If that does not work, I am afraid you will have to head to a local neighborhood wireless shop, or your retailer and get a replacement, or send in your warranty card and get it replaced with your supplier.

I would register your equipment on the website of your headset, then call them in for a exchange.


Please rate me for my effort.

  • When you close the cover of the micro-USB port after charging the battery, push the catch at the edge (the round part) of the cover into the port compartment.

My 340 headset will not turn on


Try these steps from the user guide and then pair up your headset to the phone. "Before using, you must first charge your headset. 20 minutes = minimum charge. 2 hours = full charge. Light is solid red when battery is charging. Press the control button for 2 seconds to power on. Press the control button for 3 seconds to power off." If you're still having problems, then it's time to get a new one, sorry.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

How do i charge my jabra bt150


Use the AC adapter to charge from a power socket.
The charging socket is located at the top of the headset (the wider end). When the LED is solid blue, your headset is charging. When the solid blue LED turns off, it is fully charged.
