The red flashing is a power supply problem, nothing tends to work with this issue.
contact b and w service or point of sale as they should arrange repair as this is a known problem with this product

The LED flashes several times every second:

The LED flashes slowly (once every second):
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is no current connection because the
Bluetooth device is switched off or out of range.
The LED flashes once every 3 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices. However, there is neither an audio transmission nor an active call.
The LED is glowing slowly every 4 seconds:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices, a sound file is received via A2DP and played back or
The LED flashes once every second:
The headset is paired to one or several Bluetooth devices and there is currently an active call.
If you switch on the headset and keep the Play/Pause button pressed for 5 seconds, the headset will go into pairing mode (see ?Pairing the headset? on page 9).
The LED flashes alternatingly in red and blue for up to 60 seconds:
The headset is not yet paired to any Bluetooth device. Pair it as described under ?Pairing the headset? on page 9.

The zeppelin no longer plays 2 ipods, it flashes a blue light when pressing play but no music.

the flashing blue light normally indicates the ipod is on pause. if the unit is not on pause, the problem could be the arm or the interface board, they power suppy could also be the old type, so suggest you contact b and w service if you have not already. (if there is an issue, ask them if your serial number has the updated or the problematic power supply unit!)

When playing music from my ipod on zeppelin during song there is a sudden pause for 2 or 3 seconds then song continues but much louder than before.

if it is jumping, then report to b and w. I believe they do not know the cause and more than likely replace the unit if they cannot fix. make sure you you make them aware of the jumping in output.
