@jayeff ive solved my problem now. The play/pause 15 second trick worked for me. @speedracr

My Bose has been dead a more than a year. I tried everything,nothing worked. Before you rip into it to change the battery, go to the Bose system update center, and upgrade your system software. Even though it showed no sign of life this upgrade brought it back to functionality.

My Mini speaker is plugged in and the charge indicator light-(Red) comes on but then turns off in less than 10 seconds...what to do?

door

As noted above and elsewhere press the start/pause button for 15 secs with the device plugged in (even though there are no lights), unplug from the charger after 15 secs and release the button. Remember also to go to http://btu.bose.com/?p=-1#section=connec... to update the software. I had almost given up on my device but these steps fixed it

Hi,

Try the following checks to see if the problem is in the charger, the charger cable or the speaker.

1. Connect the speaker with the charger USB cable to a USB port on a working PC/laptop. (the user guide shows that the charger cable, USB cable standard plug charger end, micro USB plug speaker end, can be unplugged from the charger).

If the speaker charging light comes on then the charger is faulty and needs to be replaced.

You can charge the speaker by connecting it to a PC/laptop, however it will take longer to fully charge as there is less current being supplied by the PC/laptop than the charger. You can also use any charger e.g. from a mobile phone, provided it has an output (printed on the charger) of 5VDC (definitely not more or less) and a current output of 0.5-1.0A (500mA-1000mA) and that it has a micro USB connector.

2. Connect a different USB cable between the PC/laptop and the speaker.

If the speaker charging light comes on then the USB cable is faulty and needs to be replaced.

If the speaker charging light still doesn't come on after trying the above checks then the problem is in the speaker. It could be the speaker charging port, the charging circuit or the battery. The speaker will have to be opened and checked to ascertain what the problem is.

I swapped out the USB cable and it's working. Dubious that it might be the connection port, but so far so good! THANK YOU!!

Nice one! Swapped charger for USB lead into PC removed battery, then put battery back. It came to life, so then tried the AC charger and that worked too. It maybe a re-boot issue in the speaker, but all well now #happy

Mudei tudo e nada. Ou seja, não tem 3 meses que comprei esta droga pelo Mercado Livre e já vou ter que abri-lo. Pior tem que ter ferramenta especial. Não comprem mais esta porcaria.

Unit plugged in but no lights, no turning on? Try this:

- Plug soundlink in to wall charger

- Hold down the play/pause button for 15 seconds.

- Then, BEFORE releasing the play/pause button, unplug the charge cord from the unit.

- Release the button,

- Plug the unit back into the wall charger.

- Press the power button, and your unit should power on.

I had the same problem on both my Soundlink Revolve. It would go down to blinking red, but then refuse to charge. This appears to be one of the issues:

I was using a Samsung phone power adaptor to charge the Bose. DO NOT USE ANY POWER ADAPTOR EXCEPT FOR BOSE. They are not compatible. The Samsung has a "fast charge mode" by increasing the voltage to 9V momentarily to test to see if the receiving device can handle 9V. Samsung phones with this feature, can be charged fast at 9V (instead of the normal 5V). When Bose Revolve detects that momentary 9V, it shuts itself down, and refuses to accept a charge, even though the Samsung adaptor is back at 5V. So use its original wall power adaptor by Bose.

Yes, exact same issue, wife started using her Samsung charger and killed it. Did the 15 second pause/play button hold and then plugged it into a different charger (not bose) with lower voltage and presto.

I actually only partially agree with this. Other wall chargers do seem to be adaptable but I can only charge the dock with the adapter that doesn't have the fast charge. The generic normal charge adapter that I have surely does work well though. Either way, the answer here was great as I never would have guessed it was because of the fast charge adapter.
