Sometimes this problem can be caused by a power button that isn’t working. Try pressing down this button for at least 2 seconds then check if the speaker turns on. You might need to have this button repaired at a service center if it is damaged.

Some of the reasons why this button can get damaged is if it has worn out contacts or if it has been subjected constantly to extreme force.

Method 3: Faulty battery

One factor that can cause this problem is a defective battery. If this is the case then replacing the battery will fix this. It’s recommended that you have this done at a service center.

Some of the causes why a battery will fail is if it is constantly being overcharged or when it is constantly being exposed to heat. These factors will rapidly degrade the battery performance.

Method 4: Faulty circuit board

Although this speaker is built to withstand constant water splashes it isn’t 100 percent waterproof. If water can enter its circuit board then it will cause damage to it. If the board has been damaged then you will need to have this fixed at a service center.
