JLAB earbuds not pairing together

Hey, welcome back to my channel. So today’s video is actually something that was requested by a viewer. Her name is Jen Cutepic, I hope I said that right. And she basically asked me how to fix your headphones when jlab earbuds not pairing together

Quick Solutions Overview

There are several ways you can fix jlab earbuds not connecting to each other and I’m just going to get straight to the point and make this really quick for everybody.

Ensuring Charge

  • First Step: The first thing you want to do is make sure that they’re both actually charged.
  • Identifying Sides: If you take a look at one of these headphones, they actually have writing on them to tell you what side they go to in the charger.
  • Common Mistake: A common mistake I used to make was I used to put them on the wrong side, which means they weren’t charging.
  • Proper Placement: So we’re going to put them each on the right side. So right and then left.

Understanding Charging Indicators

  • Case Battery Life: These two white lights actually don’t mean that the headphones are charging. This is just the battery life for the actual case itself.
  • Headphone Battery Indicator: The actual battery indicator for the headphones themselves are two blue lights that show up on this side and this side.

Addressing Bluetooth Issues

  • Connection Check: The first thing you want to do is take a look at your headphones. So you see right now they’re flashing this white color.
  • Disconnecting from Other Devices: The first thing you want to do is just go to anything you’ve paired that’s close by or in your room and disconnect these headphones from there.

Forgetting Device on iPhone

  • Navigating to Bluetooth Settings: We’re going to go to settings and then we’re going to click Bluetooth.
  • Forgetting Device: You’re going to press Forget from this device, which means it’ll erase it completely from your device.

Observing Headphone Response

  • Looking for Blue and White Flash: So if you look at your headphones, what you’re going to see is they’re going to stop glowing this white light and they’re going to start flashing right there, this blue and white color, which means they’re looking for a device.

Reconnecting and Charging

  • Connect Charging Port: When you close it, make sure you connect this Bluetooth charging port to a computer or whatever you’re using to charge these headphones.
  • Monitoring Charging Indicators: After 10 seconds, what you’re going to do is you’re going to open this up. There’s the blue light.

Pairing Back to Phone

  • Initiating Connection: Go back on your phone or whatever you want to use. Right here, you see it’s glowing blue and white, and press that.

Troubleshooting Non-Working Side

  • Addressing Non-Working Side: But if you connected to your phone and the other side still isn’t working, you see this JLAP pattern on here?
  • Touch-Sensitive Solution: These are actually touch-sensitive. And whatever side doesn’t work, just hold down or press your finger on the side that isn’t working, on the button or the touch-sensitive side, and just hold it for 10 seconds.

Confirming the Fix

  • Playing Music: The reason why I ask you to put music is because if you do that and it actually connects, you won’t know until you actually start playing a song.
