The Endurance Peak wireless headphone is a game-changer for headphone users. Imagine using a wireless, waterproof headphone that caters to your sound needs. What else can you desire? But you can have an ugly experience when your JBL Endurance Peak is not charging.
If you observe that your JBL Endurance Peak headphone is no longer charging, don’t fret. We’ll teach you some tips on how to fix the problems on your own.
JBL Endurance Peak Not Charging: Possible Solutions
If you observe that there is a blue led indicator light of solid color on your device, then it must be working fine. But if otherwise, your JBL Endurance Peak is not charging and that is a problem you need to fix.
1. Charge it correctly
You need to be sure that your JBL Endurance Peak is not charging before proceeding. So charge it initially for 10 minutes to be certain. Once you plug it into a power source using the wire cable or charging case, its will go off when it is fully charged – a sign that it is time to unplug it.
You can also monitor the battery to see if it runs down too quickly after charging. In this case, it cannot be said to be charging since it may even run down a few seconds after charging. At that, the battery may have expired. Check the battery logo in the uppermost right corner of the notification bar. It will indicate the charge on the battery. If it does not charge after the period, do not leave it for much longer.
2. Clean the charging ports
When your JBL Endurance Peak isn’t charging, it could be that there are dust particles in the charging ports. Dust makes the electrical connection needed for charging functions difficult. That is why the charging port needs to be kept clean. Aside from the charging out, both ends of the USB should be cleaned too since the accumulation of dust can make them malfunction. And how do you clean your charging port? It is simple.
Damp a cotton ball in alcohol and clean areas in and around the port as far as they are reachable. You can also clean the entire device fully to remove dust and dirt.
3. Clean the device
Check the contact points on the Endurance Peak wireless headphone to make sure they are not covered by dust. If they are, clean them gently using a damp cotton ball. Target the area where the cable is connected and clean it. Aside from dust, grime and ear wax can also make the connection poor, and as such affect its capacity to charge.
If you cannot put the cotton ball in, you may try using a toothpick to reach the corners. After cleaning them, connect the charger again to see if it starts charging again. If you do not notice any sign that it is charging, try to move the cable to different sides. But if the problem persists, you may need the help of a technician.
4. Check cable and port
If you do not have any luck with the charging attempts, you may decide to check the cable and port. This can be done by trying a different cable to see if it works. You can also try your cable on a different JBL Endurance Peak. If the problem is a faulty cable, all you need to do is to get a replacement to charge the device again.
However, it is advisable to use cables that are compatible with your device – like cables that came with it. This is because cables that are not compatible with yours may cause damage to the battery and other parts. You can always check for any visible damage to the cable. If the cable is not the problem, you may need the help of a technician.
5. Reset JBL Endurance Peak
Simply forget the earbud already paired with the Endurance Peak and put them in a charging case. Then touch and hold the right earbuds for at least 10 seconds. You will observe the blinking of the light, a sign that the reset has been completed. The light will not blink constantly; it will turn on and off.
6. Turn the device on and off
Switching your device on and off again may just be what you need to get your device to charge again.
By now your Endurance Peak should charge correctly. But if the above tips do not help, then you need the help of a professional technician.
