Question about Jabra BT500 Wireless Headset
I'm not able to switch on my headset and also i dont see any LED lighting up while charinging. What could be the problem? Pls help
I had this exact same problem, and had a couple hours on my hands to kill, so I opened up my headset. ***PLEASE NOTE - This WILL void your warranty*** Once the headset was open, I took a quick look around, and noticed that one of the leads that attach the rechargable battery to the little circuit board was not connected. Being somewhat handy, I was able to use my soldering iron to re-attach the lead from the battery to the PCB. I plugged the unit into the charger to verify, then carefully put everything back together. A little dab of superglue in the joint above the volume controls, and my headset now works great! Be careful when putting the unit back together, as the first time I re-assembled it, the lead came off, and I had to take it all apart and re-solder it. The circuit board will move out of the way slightly (pulls away from the case) in order to give a better angle to solder the lead. It does not fully detach though, so be careful. In total, it took about 30 minutes of my time, which is way cheaper than a new headset =)

I opened mine using a knife under the blue part, you CAREFULLY pry the blue off with it's adhesive, then you are left with two T6 torx screws, you remove those and careful not to lose the volume buttons. Then the main circuit board is all one piece and comes out easily.

I had a very similar problem. Your headset is most likely defective. Call Jabra at Jabra.com and they'll replace it for you if you still have the receipt where you bought it from.
