Question about Jabra BT500 Wireless Headset

Jabra BT500 will not power on or charge

I can't seem to figure out why the Jabra won't power on or charge. I have tried the USB and Power cord and nothing happens no lights or anything. For a couple of days the orange light just flickered faintly but it wouldn't charge and now it's just completely dead.

    Had same problem and I called Jabra.com. They said I have a defective headset. They are replacing it for free... as long as I can send them a copy of my receipt to show it is less than a year since a bought it.

    Jabra BT500 worked great yesterday will not power on or charge from USB

    I just got this headset 2 days ago and if you plug it in you will see a green light and then a red light (very quickly) and then nothing. It will not charge. I have tried the USB cable and the power cord....nothing. I do not have my receipt and Jabra will not help. HOW FRUSTRATING!!!

    I think Jebra BT500 is a waste of money and time. I bought mine from Car phone warehouse in Kingsbury Road NW9, charged it as instucted and when I wanted to use it it will not come on and nothing was working. I took it back to the shop only to be told there is nothing they can do about it but to recharge it. Well I have given up with it. I will advise that it should be taken out of the market because it is useless.

    I have the same problem. I charged it a whole night plugged in to my computer via usb port. Orange light flickered the whole time it was plugged in. When unplugged it was still dead. Plugged it into wall outlet with power cord that came with it...same results. Orange light flickered the whole time...when unplugged it was still dead, no light of any kind. This unit is practically new...only used it about a month before storing it.

I have at work 5 Jabra 150 which I kept in the closet about 2 years .Indeed no longer charges.
The probelm is the rechargeable battery. I spread one and the battery is not the type Li-ion but rather resembled a Pb-acid battery and is dead and.
there is nothing you can do.Take a look on picture 8 on this link http://www.instructables.com/id/Jabra-BT-350-Disassembly-and-Repair/. The aluminium part is the accumulator and is sealed .

Not a solution but a complaint. I have a Jabra Easy Call (1 year) and a Jabra Classic (2 months). Both stopped taking a charge at the same time. Company is worthless for help.

My problem is it will charge up but will not turn on I contacted Jabra and because I can't find my receipt they will not give me any assistance and I've only had it since February of this year. I've never had a product that an individual tells me they don't repair at the price of these things. I will never buy another Jabra again.

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

Jabra BT500 won't power up


If you can try a different charger, try that. try charging with USB cable if not. Try your charger on another headset if you can. I think the charger is the problem. If no change every way, here is the link to the user manual if you need it; http://www.jabra.com/Sites/Jabra/NA-US/pages/SupportProduct.aspx?productid=3c063d26-e62b-4b4d-9613-c10134a79cf3 Page 7 has the toll-free tech helpline which is probably worth a check in case they have any ideas before opening it up. If still no luck, and you want to open it up, first thing to look for is the battery. check any connectors are on properly. try charging for a while and see if battery gets warm/hot/no change. See if there are any technical specifications or part numbers written on the battery and I can get more info to see if it can be checked and if it is worth replacing. If you have any trouble identifying the battery, try posting back a photo of the inside and we will see what we can do. Hope this helps :)

PCV R44G, won't boot, no fans, won' turn on.


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Why won't my Sony camera charge?


Not all cameras charge from the USB cord. Also there are some USB cords for data, some for charging.

Compaq CQ4010F Desktop PC won't turn on after a power surge


You probably and lets hope so, have an Electro Static Charge Buildup on your desktop. Remove the Power Cord and Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 Seconds plug the Power Cord back in the hit the Power Button. If it boots then you had an Static Charge Buildup. If it does not boot and you say it happened after a power surge then either your Power Supply or Motherboard is possibly damaged. Do you hear fans, hear the disk drive running, see lights, hear the CD Rom click once and see the light on the CD Rom drive com on briefly after you hit the Power Button. If so it would seem that your power supply is ok.

My headset will not turn on


Hello

Your bluetooth headset is powered by an internal battery. If the battery is not charged,it just won't turn on. Fully charge your battery before use.

Make sure that the power outlet you're using is working and that the cord is fitted correctly into the wall, PC or Car outlet and the Jabra Bluetooth device.

Try unplugging the Jabra Bluetooth device and see if it turns on. If so, use the Jabra Bluetooth device until the battery is completely exhausted. The next time you charge it, check that it is charging properly

If the Jabra Bluetooth device is still not charging, check what happens when you initially plug the Bluetooth device into its charger. If the light on the Bluetooth device flashes on and then off again quickly, it is likely that the battery is no longer working. Batteries cannot be replaced or covered warranty

Jabra a 210 adapter not charging


I contacted Jabra and they said this problem is due to a bad internal battery. There is nothing that can be done to fix it. So I returned it to the guy who sold it to me and got my money back. Purchased another from a different vendor, and this one works great. That's the only solution!
