How to Fix JLab Earbuds Not Charging

If you’ve been struggling with an issue that you haven’t been able to solve, you’ve come to the correct spot.

There are a variety of possible reasons why your JLab earphones aren’t charging properly. It is possible that the charging cable is defective, that the connection is not tight enough or that the connection is unclean, or that the charging case has been hacked.

To help you fix any future charging difficulties with your JLab earphones, we’ve laid out the actions you should take in the following sections.

Check Your Charging Cable

The most frequent issue that individuals have while learning how to repair JLab earphones that won’t charge is that they are using the incorrect charging cord.

Manufacturers provide a very particular cord with their earphones for a very precise purpose, and this may come as a surprise to you. If you’re using internal batteries in your JBL headphones, this is the wire to get the greatest results. It provides just the appropriate amount of “energy” to your earbuds without harming them or burning out the battery in your headphones.

It’s important to double-check the cable you’re using for your headphones if they’re not charging properly. If it is not the original JBL wire, you should replace it as soon as possible.

Double Check the Connection

Another possibility is that your wire isn’t firmly secured into your earphones or your JBL charging case, which might cause the problem.

A positive “snap” when attaching your cable to your earbuds/case is essential, and you’ll want to make sure your charging cable connects to your charging source with the same positive “snap” as well. If your connection is poor or if it is not precisely slotted into its connection point, it is possible that you will not get enough energy to charge your headphones.
After you have examined the cable, you should verify this connection.

Clean the Connections

The chances are in your favour. You’ve probably seen how filthy, muddy, and gunked up your charging cable becomes after 3 to 6 months of regular use. After being used (and mistreated) on a daily basis, these products never appear like they did when they were first purchased.

Cleaning the connectors, on the other hand, is really simple and may restore your cable to better than new condition in a matter of minutes.

Use a Q-tip to gently swab the connections after applying a little amount of rubbing alcohol. The solution does not need you to go insane or to bathe the ends of your cable in rubbing alcohol as previously suggested. You just need to apply a little force to clear away any dust, dirt, and filth that might be causing your connection to be unreliable.

Update the Earbuds

A excellent job is done by JBL in terms of upgrading their earbuds firmware on a regular basis, which includes addressing significant issues and providing new functions.
However, if your earbuds have outdated firmware, you may not be able to take advantage of battery-saving enhancements or updates that resolve charging difficulties completely.

Check with JBL every six months or so to see if there is a new driver update available. Perhaps you’ll be amazed by how brand-new your headphones feel following a simple software update!

Clean the Charging Case

It’s possible that you’ll need to clean the connections in order for them to start charging again.

Cleaning your charging wires follows the same steps as cleaning your phone charger cables (and cleaning out the connection on your earbuds, too).

Using a Q-tip, apply a little amount of rubbing alcohol to the connectors and begin working. Because it evaporates so fast, rubbing alcohol is a fantastic disinfectant. You won’t have to be concerned about anything shorting out, and you’ll also receive a fluid that will dissolve any muck and filth that may have accumulated.

Restart Your Earbuds

Sometimes the simplest solution to the problem of JLab earbuds not charging is just to restart them!

If you’ve ever had to restart your computer, laptop, tablet, phone, or network in order to get it to “behave,” you’re probably not alone. Those pesky little ghosts in the machine of contemporary technology may create all sorts of hiccups, like malfunctioning earphones from JLab.

Try shutting down your earphones, restarting them, and refreshing them to see if it resolves your charging issues. In certain cases, you may be amazed at how well this works even when nothing else seems to be working.

It is possible that you may need to factory reset your JLab earphones. This is a bit more harsh, but it will restore your earphones to their original settings and smooth out any bugs that may have developed along the way.

You may, of course, update your software once you’ve remedied the charging issue.

Try a Wireless Charger (When Applicable)

Finally, it may not be a terrible idea to experiment with a new kind of charging entirely to determine the source of your problem.

It’s worth a try if your JLab earphones have the capability of wireless charging. Take use of a high-quality (but affordable) wireless charging pad and place your earphones on top to check if your charging troubles are resolved.

If everything checks out, you’ll be off to the races in no time!

But if your JLab earbuds are still charging after that, it’s possible that there’s an issue with the batteries themselves (or the earbuds themselves). Make contact with JLab to see if you can get them removed from the system (or your purchase refunded).
