Jabra a 210 adapter not charging

Hello.  I just purchase a jabra a210 adapter for my windows media phone that is not boothtooth compatible (go figure).  When I brought the device home I plugged it into the charger and the red light came on showing it was charging but only stayed on for around 3 seconds.  I read the instructions and they said the red light would stay on while charging but it did not.  I charged the adapter for about 2 hours ( what the instructions told me to do).  Once the 2 hours where up I unplugged the adapter and tried to power it up and nothing happend.  I kept trying and the blue light never came on.  I called the jabra company for support and they said that it sounds like a bad internal battery.  I then returned the adapter back to the store and exchanged it.  The new adapter that I got from the store turned out to do the same exact thing.  Charged it forever tried to power it up and again nothing.  I then went back to the store for the third time and had them open up another package and try to plug it in at the store and it did the same exact thing again.  Red light comes on for a few seconds then goes off.  I proceeded to take the charger and adapter home to try and charge it over night to see if that would help and this morning tried to power up the adapter and nothing happened.  I tried calling jabra and they are closed for the weekend.  Ugh I am so frustrated and I am pretty knowledgeable when it comes to electronics but at this point I am totally stumped!!  Please help.

    I'm having the same issue. The red light will come on momentarily after unplugging and replugging the power supply in, but will not stay lit nor charge.

    Same problem here. Returned the first one and tried with another one today, same thing. Red light comes on for about 3 seconds and then nothing!

  • Lauriegirl Dec 29, 2007

    I have the same problem.

    Plug it in to charge, red light turns on for a second or so then shuts off.

    Whats up with this adapter?

    Same here, just like the problem everyone else has had.

  • Sherertom Jan 28, 2008

    Exact same problem.

  • Anonymous Nov 03, 2008

    Same here. I returned the item to the seller and got another one with the same problem. I still want one but am afraid I will get the same thing!!!

    I've now had FOUR of these *[email protected]^#$ things - the first worked for about a year (so I was happy) - when it died, i went online and found them very (very) cheap, so bought THREE (figuring they'd last me forever) - the first one worked for about two weeks; numbers two and three won't even charge....
    I'm FURIOUS at Jabra for making (still?) such a crappy product. I'm going to try to get in touch with them this week to see if they know the extent of their problem - and whether or not they have ANY intent on making things 'right' (which I HIGHLY doubt, otherwise engineering would have fixed whatever the problem is - and recalled the defective ones - and reissued working ones - but that never seems to have happened; has it?)
    So Jabra is just sort of taking money for NOTHING; it's a 'scam' - pure and simple!

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!

See another similar question with my more detailed answer, but it seems the battery must have some life to let the system charge. too low and the whole thing becomes dysfunctional. You can go in the case and hot wire the black wire over to the neg terminal on the battery (1/8" distance) to get some juice in the battery, then after 1/2 hour it will charge on its own (see details elsewhere). The red light must be on as proof it is charging. good luck

I had the same problem. I called Jabra; they said to mail it and the receipt to them and they would replace it.

The Jabra A210 keeps dropping the connection between the devices.

My solution is to connect the jabra audio jack to the speaker output of my receiver. Jabra need it to detect a source. If the connection to the source is cut, jabra waits around 30 seconds and if nothing happend jabra stop the transmittion. I hope that helps.

Jabra bT260s Pairing problem...

You may need to change your output sound device. The method may vary depending on your software and hardware, but go to Start -> Control Panel -> Sound (I think. Doing this from memory, so might be slightly off). There should be a Devices or Output tab. Change that to your bluetooth headset. You will probably need to restart WMP before you hear music, too.

Jabra bluetooth adapter A210

you have to connect the jabra audio jack to the audio source, to the speaker output of your receiver for example. If jabra detects the source it will work. If you cut the connection, jabra watch for a while if something happend and than stops the transmittion. Hope that helps

Jabra BT150 compatibility

Went to Jabra could not find the number you gave for the phone. It is compatible with Nokia phones but does not show this number. Sorry.

There's a 6162 and it is compatible.

Let me know if the number you gave is correct.

Won't charge up...

I had the same issue. So what I did was get a small screwdriver, opened the A210 case removed the battery. You will notice orange tape (remove it) then attached to the battery is a small board (the defective part) . Cut away the board, then you will need to solder the wires back to the thin metal film leads. And voila it will now charge, make sure to never let it charge for more than 2 hours. Do this at your own risk. Of course this will void the warranty.

Charging the LG Bluetooth

the cover is a little rubber covering on the side you lift with your fingernail, and the charger port in underneath.
