Question about Samsung WEP170 Wireless Headset

1 Answer

Can't Turn on/Charge

Hello, I recently picked up a WEP170 and I'm having troubles with it. I cannot turn it on at all. It also does not seem to charge at all. When I attempt to charge it, the indicator light turns red for a moment and goes directly to blue, indicating that the unit is charged. When I try to turn it on, nothing happens. No lights, no beeps, no nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Same problem, when I first went to charge it up the light very qucikly went to blue and flashes at random after a while it remains blue and only falshes every 10/15sec. I got this while on holiday so returining it is not really an option.

    I have two of these headsets about a year and half old (although never used) with the same problem. Are the batteries dead and are they replaceable?

    I have the same problem. Although I haven't used it in a long time, I thought I'd pull it out and start using it again. I put it on the charger and the red light came on for about 1 sec and went to blue. I can't turn it on.

I had the same problem when I purchased mine. There was nothing to do except return it for a replacement.

If you haven't used the device for a year, it is not surprising that it may not charge. The rechargeable Lithium ion battery may no longer accept a charge, especially if it was stored in a zero-charge condition. It' probably time to replace it. In the future, try to charge anything you don't plan to use for a while to 50-70% of full charge before storing it. I have destroyed a number of cordless phone batteries by letting them sit for a few weeks after a complete discharge, but luckily they are easy to replace.

It is not good at all, it was a wrong choice

You can change the rechargable battery inside and see what will happen.
