What Can I Do if Resetting Doesn’t Solve the Speaker Problems?

You don’t need to reset your speaker if it is working perfectly fine and you don’t want to do so. The speaker must be reset when it no longer pairs with Bluetooth devices, or when it has unknown devices connected. The following remedies can be tried if you still have problems after trying any of them for a while.

Bluetooth Pairing Problems

There is a chance that a reset will effectively resolve your speaker’s pairing issues if you have them. Before you reset the Bluetooth devices of your phone, you should also unpair, forget, and re-pair them before you reset the device itself. It would be a good idea to reset the speaker if that didn’t work, but if it didn’t, you can try it again.

If the speaker still does not connect to your device, you need to make sure that the Bluetooth on the device, such as your smartphone and the computer, is turned on. It is possible that the connection will not go through if the device you are using to connect the speaker to has an old Bluetooth model. There are many JBL speakers that come equipped with the latest Bluetooth version, which may not be able to connect to older Bluetooth versions.

Speaker Not Turning On

If the speaker does not power on at all, then there may be a problem with the device’s charging, where the battery does not charge or the device’s battery may have been damaged, leading to the speaker not working as it should. It may also be the case that the power button is malfunctioning. When you have a device that is not powering on, you should take it to a technician to have it checked out or you can contact JBL customer support for assistance.

Unknown Device Paired

If your Bluetooth device has been paired to a device that it cannot connect to, and it has been paired to an unknown device, you can reset it to solve the problem. You will need to reset the device again if you still cannot pair it with other devices after resetting it.

Low Battery Runtime

In order to determine if your battery isn’t lasting as long as it should, check the battery rating of your device. When the battery of your speaker is rated to last twelve hours after charging, the rating is based on your speaker running at a low volume and running for twelve hours. When the speaker runs at a high volume, you may find that the battery does not last as long as you would like.

Whenever the volume is turned up to a high level, the battery drains quickly. In the case of old speakers, you may need to replace the battery if it is damaged.

Poor Audio Quality

A speaker may be getting old if the quality of the audio it produces is not as good as it once was. It is possible that the audio quality of your speaker might deteriorate if you overload it with high volumes for prolonged periods of time. You might need to replace your speaker if it has been used in high volumes for a long time, and if it is old and used in high volumes for a long time.

For your speaker to play in the way that you expect it to, you need to check the audio settings on both your speaker and your audio device.

Why Would You Want to Reset a JBL Speaker?

Among the industry’s most advanced speakers at this time, JBL speakers are considered to be among the best. They produce audio quality that is almost impeccably clear, and they are also able to connect wirelessly or via Bluetooth to a variety of audio devices. There is a limited number of functions available on some of the JBL speakers, but they are all advanced enough to be able to connect remotely through Bluetooth.

Several of the speakers come with advanced features, such as the ability to show the percentage of battery life left on them. The most common reason people reset their speakers is when they have problems with their batteries. There is either a problem with the battery failing to charge or the battery is draining very quickly. It is recommended that you perform a reset if you encounter any of these problems.

You can also reset your speaker if you are experiencing connection issues such as not being able to pair new devices or you have unknown devices paired to the speaker and you need to pair them. Additionally, on your speaker, you may also need to reset the settings if you have forgotten how to do so in the past and you need to do it now.

You might also be able to soft-brick your speaker if the problem persists. It means that your device may become unusable due to soft bricking, but if you reset the device, you can restore the functionality back to it. It is very different from hard-bricking where it is impossible to restore a speaker through conventional methods and it becomes useless once it has become hard-bricked.

Closing Thoughts

Since JBL has been in the audio business for over 70 years now, it is one of the oldest companies in the industry. Under Harman International Industries, which is a part of Samsung Electronics, this business is under Harman International Industries. Among all the large companies and professionals who choose JBL speakers, there is a wide variety of brands to choose from.

There is usually a subwoofer included with most speakers from JBL, so you can get the deep bass you need for your hip hop and other modern music with a speaker from JBL. In spite of the fact that you may play either at a low level or at a high level on the speaker, an impressive amount of bass is produced.

Again, JBL speakers are capable of running on battery for up to 24 hours, making them perfect for traveling when you need to listen to music. You may not be able to bring them on a trip with you because they are not the lightest speakers, but you can still use them. Even better, they support the latest Bluetooth version, which is version 4.2, which is the latest version of Bluetooth that helps you to connect quickly with your device.

The JBL speakers I have tested so far have been great for playing music in the house or in the car, and I highly recommend them.
