How To Correct Soundcore Bluetooth Not Working Issue
One problem you may experience with your Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is unsuccessfully pairing it with another Bluetooth gadget. There are numerous potential causes for the connection issues, including an unpaired device, dead battery, or device out of range.
This could be particularly frustrating if you wish to play your favorite tunes through the speaker. Here are the necessary troubleshooting procedures to resolve this issue:
Technique 1: Do a Factory Reset
This is a beneficial approach when encountering issues with the gadget, such as when you cannot establish a Bluetooth connection.
A hard or factory reset is the first thing you should try if you’re experiencing problems with your Soundcore. This clears the speaker’s memory and returns it to its factory settings. Here are the steps to take:
- Hold down the power button for about 8 seconds to reset the speaker.
- Hold down the Bluetooth button for about two seconds to remove all prior pairings.
After completing these actions, try establishing a Bluetooth connection with the speaker.
Technique 2: Pair the Bluetooth Gadget
If your Soundcore speaker is currently linked with another gadget and you wish to connect it with your smartphone, you must reset its Bluetooth connection. Follow these steps:
- Activate your Soundcore speaker.
- For approximately three seconds, tap and hold the speaker’s Bluetooth button.
- Once the light starts blinking, you can pair your device.
- Erase the title of the speaker connection on your device. Then, perform a repeat Bluetooth scan to locate the speaker’s id, then attempt to link to it.
Technique 3: Recharge the Speaker
One explanation why the Bluetooth functionality will not function is the speaker’s battery running low. Charging the speaker will take care of the problem. Here’s how:
- Plug the micro-USB cable into the speaker’s charging connector.
- Plug the opposite end of the micro-USB connector into a wall charger and ensure it’s secure.
- Connect the wall charger to an electrical socket.
- Charge the speaker for not less than three hours before attempting to link it to your Bluetooth gadget.
Technique 4: Device Is Out of Range
The suggested maximum working distance between a speaker and the connected device is 66 feet. The range reduces if there are numerous obstacles or signal disruptions like walls between the two devices. Thus, if you have issues with your connectivity, try putting the two devices in closer proximity.
It can be frustrating when a Soundcore Bluetooth speaker is not working. We love the sound quality of both the Motion+ and Motion Boom, but it won’t do much for you if it won’t connect to an audio source!
Hopefully, this guide will assist you in knowing how to pair a Soundcore speaker with other devices. Try some of these solutions, and you are good to go!
