Like the others:
My headphone Q35 green led will not turn off, FW downgrade NO, Reboot with turn off,plug in, plug out, NO.
Bose must know what the real problem is, and is not making it public. It has to be a hardware failure, no reboot FW fix, otherwise you would see it. Where is the post that says, "you should return your headphones, there is nothing you can do to fix this"?
Very disappointed in forum tech help
It sounds like you've done all you can do on your own. It's time to call Bose Support.

I received my replacement unit on Friday. The original e-mail had me expecting just the QC30 with no additional accessories, however, I received a brand-new-in-the-box set of QC30s. Not sure if this is standard procedure, or because I bought the in-store warranty, or because I've not had them for more than 90 days or so. That made me quite happy. I charged them up and was able to use them on two 5+ hour car rides this weekend. Worked great. Very happy. Thanks to the faux-cross shipping method (i.e., Bose shipping replacement unit when my return UPS label was scanned) I wasn't without my QC30s for more than a few days, and the whole ordeal didn't cost me any money. Thanks Bose.

I am having the same problem, and this is my third headset in a month. My previous headsets also had issues with turning on. The power button is wonky, to say the least and although a hassle, I will keep exchanging for a new set until Bose fixes this obvious problem.

I have the same issue. 6 month old unit. Read this thread and tried everything but nothing helps. It must be a hardware issue which cant be resolved.
Really disappointed and if Bose is a serious company they should replace my unit with 2-3 new ones.
