Jlab Earbuds Not Charging: DIY Troubleshooting Tips
Before moving on to more advanced troubleshooting steps, there are a few basic steps you can take to try and resolve the issue with your Jlab earbuds.
1. Checking the Charging Cable and Port
The first thing you should do is check the charging cable and port. Here’s how to do it:
- Check the charging cable for any damage or fraying. If the cable is damaged, it may not be able to transmit power to the earbuds properly.
- Check the charging port on the earbuds for any debris or damage. If the port is dirty or damaged, it may not be able to connect to the charging cable properly.
- Try using a different charging cable and/or charging port to see if the issue persists. If the earbuds charge correctly with a different cable or port, it’s likely that the original cable or port was the issue.
2. Restarting the Earbuds
Sometimes, restarting your earbuds can help resolve charging issues. Here’s how to do it:
- Turn off your earbuds by pressing and holding the power button until they turn off.
- Wait a few minutes before turning them back on by pressing and holding the power button again.
- Try charging your earbuds again to see if the issue has been resolved.
3. Checking the Charging Circuit
If the charging circuit in your earbuds is damaged, it can prevent them from charging properly. Here’s how to check the charging circuit:
- Remove the battery from the earbuds.
- Using a multimeter, check the voltage across the charging circuit. The voltage should be within the specified range for your earbuds. If it is not, the charging circuit may be damaged.
- If the charging circuit is damaged, you’ll need to replace it to fix the issue.
4. Updating the Firmware
If the firmware on your earbuds is outdated, it can cause issues with charging and performance. To update the firmware:
- Connect your earbuds to a device using a USB cable.
