SoundLink Mini II continuous yellow blinking light

I have the SoundLink Mini II which has been working very well until recently. It never fully charges and the power light blinks yellow. I have tried everything recommended. I've even tried to do a firmware update, but when I connect via USB/computer, nothing happens. I can't even click on the symbol for the SoundLink Mini II. This is very frustrating. I've reset it. I've pressed the middle button, etc. 

It held the charge at 90% for weeks.

Now it's at 80% and it's continually plugged in to its charger.

ScoutHarper.

 

So sorry to hear that. There are a few things we can try. First, could you verify that you are using the original charger? While many 3rd party USB chargers will provide some level of charge to the Bose system, some will not work at all, and some may provide an inconsistent charging time.

 

Also, you could try to play the speaker at a moderate volume (around 50%) for at least 10 minutes while on battery power. Then try charging the unit again.

 

Try those steps and let us know

Yes, I'm using the original charger.

 

I did as you requested and now there is no power light at all. Still says battery at 80% when I push it, but it doesn't show it's charging. It would blink yellow if it was charging, right?

Okay. Now it's blinking yellow again. I'll see if it charges.

It's now about 3 hours later and it's still at 80%. It's not adding any charge.


Any other ideas?
