Pyle Bluetooth connectivity issues can be due to a range of reasons, however, it doesn’t necessarily signify that you will have to pack up your Bluetooth speaker and start searching for a replacement
In this article, we’ll take a look at some common problems that can prevent your Pyle Bluetooth speaker from connecting to your devices. We’ll also provide you with simple and easy-to-follow troubleshooting steps to help you get your speaker back up and running in no time.
How To Fix Pyle Bluetooth Speaker Not Connecting to Phone
Step 1: Check the Basics
First, ensure that your Pyle Bluetooth speaker is turned on and has enough battery power. Make sure it’s in pairing mode by checking the speaker’s user manual for the specific instructions. Also, ensure that Bluetooth is enabled on your phone and that it’s not connected to any other Bluetooth devices.
Step 2: Reset the Connection
Sometimes, the Bluetooth connection between your speaker and phone can become unstable. To fix this, try resetting the connection.
- Turn off Bluetooth on your phone and turn off the Pyle speaker.
- Leave them both off for a minute or two.
- Then, turn on Bluetooth on your phone and power on the speaker.
- Put the speaker into pairing mode and try reconnecting the devices.
Step 3: Forget and Re-pair
If the previous step didn’t work, you can try “forgetting” the Pyle speaker from your phone’s Bluetooth settings and then re-pairing the devices. Here’s how:
- On your phone, go to the Bluetooth settings (usually found in the Settings menu).
- Find the Pyle speaker in the list of paired devices and select it.
- Look for an option to “Forget” or “Remove” the device. Tap on it and confirm the action.
- Now, put the Pyle speaker back into pairing mode and search for it in your phone’s Bluetooth settings.
- Once you see the speaker listed, tap on it to initiate the pairing process.
Step 4: Update Firmware
Outdated firmware can sometimes cause connectivity issues. Visit the official Pyle website and search for the model of your speaker. Look for firmware updates or software downloads related to your device. If an update is available, download and install it following the provided instructions.
Step 5: Restart Devices
A simple restart can resolve connectivity problems. Turn off both your phone and the Pyle speaker. Leave them off for a few seconds, and then power them back on. Once they’re both turned on, try connecting them via Bluetooth again.
Step 6: Clear Bluetooth Cache (Android Only)
If you’re using an Android phone, clearing the Bluetooth cache can help in some cases. To do this:
- Go to the Settings menu on your phone and find the “Apps” or “Applications” section.
- Look for “Bluetooth” or “Bluetooth Share” in the list of installed apps and tap on it.
- Select the option to “Clear Cache” or “Clear Data.”

How To Fix Pyle Bluetooth Speaker Not Connecting to Laptop
Step 1: Check Bluetooth Compatibility
First, make sure that your laptop has Bluetooth capability. Not all laptops have built-in Bluetooth, so it’s important to verify this. Look for a Bluetooth symbol on your laptop’s keyboard or check the user manual to confirm Bluetooth support.
Step 2: Power Cycle the Speaker and Laptop
Turn off both your Pyle Bluetooth speaker and your laptop. Disconnect any cables connected to the speaker. Wait for a few seconds, and then turn on the speaker and your laptop again. Sometimes, a simple power cycle can resolve connectivity issues.
Step 3: Ensure Bluetooth is Enabled on the Laptop
On your laptop, go to the settings menu. Look for the Bluetooth settings, which are usually found in the “Wireless” or “Network” section. Ensure that Bluetooth is turned on. If it’s already enabled, toggle it off and then on again to refresh the Bluetooth connection.
Step 4: Put the Speaker in Pairing Mode
Check the speaker’s user manual for specific instructions on how to put it into pairing mode. Generally, you need to press and hold a specific button or combination of buttons on the speaker to activate pairing mode. When the speaker is in pairing mode, it will typically indicate this through a flashing light or a specific sound.
Step 5: Scan for Devices on the Laptop
On your laptop, go back to the Bluetooth settings menu. Look for an option to scan or search for devices. Click on this option to let your laptop search for nearby Bluetooth devices. Wait for a few seconds or until your laptop detects the Pyle Bluetooth speaker.
Step 6: Pair the Speaker with the Laptop
Once your laptop detects the Pyle Bluetooth speaker, it will display the speaker’s name in the list of available devices. Click on the speaker’s name to start the pairing process. Follow any on-screen prompts to complete the pairing.
Step 7: Confirm the Connection
After the pairing process is complete, your laptop should display a confirmation message that the Pyle Bluetooth speaker is connected. You may also hear a sound or see a light indicator on the speaker indicating a successful connection. Test the connection by playing some audio on your laptop to ensure it plays through the Bluetooth speaker.
Step 8: Update Bluetooth Drivers
If the speaker still doesn’t connect after following the previous steps, it’s possible that your laptop’s Bluetooth drivers need to be updated. Visit the manufacturer’s website for your laptop and search for the latest Bluetooth drivers. Download and install them according to the provided instructions. After updating the drivers, repeat the pairing process.
Step 9: Reset the Speaker
If none of the above steps work, you can try resetting the Pyle Bluetooth speaker. Refer to the user manual for specific instructions on how to reset your particular model. Once the reset is complete, go back to Step 4 and follow the pairing process again.
Step 10: Contact Pyle Support
If you’ve followed all the steps and you’re not able to resolve the issue you should reach out to Pyle’s customer support. Provide them with details about the problem you’re experiencing and the steps you’ve already taken. They should be able to provide additional troubleshooting or arrange a repair if necessary.
