I have a Jabra A210 Universal Bluetooth Adapter. It was working fine until yesterday. It's supposed to charge for about 2 hours, and the red light is supposed to turn off when fully charged. It's been charging for almost 8 hours now, the red light comes on when plugged into the charger, and just stays on. I unplug it and press the on/off button, but it will not turn on.
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.

You have to first put the Headset into discoverable mode. According to the Jabra website, this is done by pressing and holding the end/mute button until the light comes on steady. Follow the procedure for your phone to pair a bluetooth device to it. The PIN code will be 0000.
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.
hi, 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
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!
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!
