The battery may be shot and incapable of charging. The red light could be merely indicating that the charger is working.

SOURCE: Jabra BT 350 has stopped connecting

Hey everyone! I had the same problem, and I actually got it to work again! I hope these directions will help you get yours to work (from the manual):
1. Put the headset in pairing mode
• Make sure the headset is off.
• Press and hold the answer/end button until a solid blue light comes on. <== THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! HOLD THE BUTTON UNTIL YOU SEE A SOLID NON-BLINKING LIGHT! (This is where I was going wrong with the directions.)
2. Set your Bluetooth phone to ‘discover’ the Jabra BT350
Follow your phone’s instruction guide. This usually involves going to a ‘setup,’ ‘connect’ or ‘Bluetooth’ menu on your phone and selecting the option to ‘discover’ or ‘add’ a Bluetooth device.
3. Your phone will find the Jabra BT350
Your phone then asks if you want to pair with it. Accept by pressing ‘Yes’ or ‘OK’ on the phone and confirm with the passkey or PIN = 0000 (4 zeros).

Good luck!

SOURCE: new jabra 350 can't be charged

right out of the box i had the light flicker on me too. if you don't have warranty or receipt like i did try this. i'm not responsible if it doesn't work after!

peel off the blue part of plastic that has jabra on it. take a screwdriver and unscrew the star screws. take the cover off. using some wires, briefly connect a battery (i used a wireless drill battery) to the leads of the bluetooth battery. you'll see a spark.

now my thing is charging for the first time

SOURCE: Jabra JX10 Bluetooth doesn't/won't charge

Not sure if this is a solution or if it occurred by chance. Like many on here, I put my Jabra JX10 away for a few months while not using it. The time come for me to need it once again and found that it was dead. Made an attempt to charge the unit with negative results. The unit would only show a green "charged" LED indicator as if the unit was fully charged. I tried plugging the unit into the charger multiple times, and took the cradle out of the loop and just used the AC cord alone. Still with the same results. I pulled the outside cover off (slowly), to be sure not to break the small fragile tabs that hold it in place. The battery takes up majority of the space. Removed the battery but DID NOT disconnect from unit. Plugged the charge cord into the unit and immediately got a red LED charging indicator. While charging, placed the battery back inside and put the outside cover back on. The unit continued to charge for a little over an hour before the green LED "charged" indicator came on. I used the unit throughout the day to test it with no problems. Not sure what removing the battery from unit did, especially when it was not disconnected, but it worked. I hope to see similar results.

SOURCE: phone won't connect to Jabra

I'm going to say what you already know its your jabra. it has gone to jabra heaven. Iv gone threw 3 of these in 2 years it doesnt take much to damage them scents the electronics are so delicate and small I lost one due to dropping it one because it got to much moisture (I took it to the shower with me and laid it on the counter and the steam killed it when I was done it no longer worked ) and one my 10 year old son sat on in my car it was DOA by the time I got him to school. Im sorry that I could not help you revive it in some way but i hope that I was at least helpful.

Hi there
This sound like a warranty problem for the rider is quite new. Check the battery charge some electric riders do funny things when the battery is down they do not always stop. The throttle potentiometer sounds by the symptoms to be at fault. Try put a Medium Wave A.M. radio near it and listen if you can hear a buzzing sound if not the controller is sick and this needs special repairs. If you hear buzzing that changes as you turn the throttle then the controller is okay and the links or cable from your controller can be sticking

ggirl why did you buy a pig in the poke they should refund your money because the batteries should have a six month warranty. Now always ask for the date code on batteries you are buying they shouldn't be any older than 4 months old. There are good batteries out there but if I offend anyone I'm sorry but MK batteries are very good also Interstate batteries and probably others that I'm not aware of. The best way to insure good batteries are buying fresh batteries, Charge them before you use the chair and always get into the habit of charging overnite if you use the chair daily. Never leave the charger plugged in more that 12 hours and if you don't use the chair daily charge at least once a week and always put up fully charged. Mk recommends charging the batteries daily for the first 20 days. Never run the batteries or let them fall below the red light on your battery level indicator. Your chair runs on about a 5 volt range (26-21 volts) after that the red light blinks like crazy. If it falls below 20 volts the charger will not charge the batteries. If you take care of them they should last you 3 years or more. Hope this helps

My jabra BT160 won't charge


i had the same problem with mine. the problem is with the completely empty battery.
solution is to disassemble it and force charge the battery inside.
you have to cut any usb cable leaving the side which connects to pc and remove the insolation from red and black wires. connect them for few seconds to battery soldering points on jabra board (red to red, black to black, sometimes you have to scratch the solder a bit if it oxidized a bit). once you see the light you can start charging it normally.

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.

New jabra A210 not charging


I had not used my A210 in a couple years, and when I needed it again now, I TOO GOT THIS SAME EXACT SYMPTOM: where it would light red (charging) only for 2 or 3 seconds, and then be off. Hours on the charger and no charging or difference. I tried plugging it in a few hundred times to see if it would "jump start" for the 3 seconds to add up, no luck. I WAS VERY GLAD to read MightyFrosty could change something inside and get it working. I followed his advice up to "removing the tiny circuitboard on the tiny battery and resoldering". Instead (got the case open with a razor blade, gently) I removed the amber tape that wraps the battery/circuitboard assembly and tried first "jumping" the red to the "+", nothing~ but then jumping the black to the "-" the RED LIGHT came on and STAYED ON! (but only while "jumped". Better yet after some 20 minutes of "jumpered" charging, the RED LIGHT STAYED ON even when I removed the tiny jumper~! (a tiny wire is all, bent to touch the black wire solder spot and the "-" battery lead). so IT APPEARS it CAN CHARGE PROPERLY on its own once the battery has a little juice in it! It is charging completely normally now (red light solid, no jumpers, and with no cuts or circuit removals!). I believe I can reassemble it all tomorrow and have a non-modified operational bluetooth Jabra! Thank you MightyFrosty and good luck to all!

Steady Red Light


From the sounds of this.. It's all due to bad keying of the polarized charging plug. The solid red light PROBABLY means you're battery is pretty darn dead. It'll need a new battery(not worth the cost imho. get a new jabra, and be happy once again) At a certain low voltage, the red light starts blinking. when it drops below the preset threshold, it will shut off completely. If it sits too long at this discharged rate, the battry WILL self-terminate. If the voltage drops below a certain level, it's ruined. Also note, most Li-ion cells will only last a few years. 2-3 years of "full power" is usual. Mine's 2 years old(steady usage), and showing signs of it's age.


"My red light won't go off even though I charged it all night.
Also, a small piece of plastic came off the charge opening. I don't know if this is will pose a problem to the use of the Jabra BT150."

This is probably the most telling bit of information. It means you DID plug the charger in upside down. It will NEVER charge in that configuration, as it is supplying power to the completely wrong pins. If the battery was good to start with, it shouldn't hurt the headset, but never know. I have accidentily plugged it in backwards for a couple min before noticing, with no ill efect, but YMMV.

"Doesn't anyone from the Jabra manufacturer check this site?"

NO (especially not for discontinued products)
