One issue that you might encounter with your Partybox 310 Bluetooth speaker is when you are unable to pair it with a Bluetooth device. This can be an annoying problem especially if you want to play your favorite music on the speaker. Here are the troubleshooting steps you need to do to fix this.
Method 1: Perform a factory reset on JBL Partybox 310
The first thing you will need to do is a factory reset or hard reset. This will delete any data stored by the Bluetooth speaker and bring it back to its default settings. This is a useful troubleshooting step to do when you are experiencing problems with the device such as when you can’t make a Bluetooth connection.
Time needed: 2 minutes.
Reset the speaker
- Turn on the device.
You can do this by pressing on the power button.
- Press and hold the Volume up button and Play button.
Do this until the device turns off which should be around 10 seconds.
- Turn on the device.
You can do this by pressing on the power button. The device should now be in pairing mode.
After performing these steps try to check if the problem is solved.
Method 2: Pair the Bluetooth device
If the speaker is already paired to another device then you won’t be able to connect it to your phone or music player. To fix this you will need to pair the speaker again.
- Turn on the Partybox 310.
- Press and hold down the Bluetooth button for 3 seconds
- When the light begins flashing the Bluetooth speaker is ready to pair and connect.
Make sure to delete the speaker connection name on your phone then do a Bluetooth scan so that the speaker name will appear on it. Try connecting to the speaker.
Method 3: Charge the speaker to fix not connecting to Bluetooth issue
If the battery does not have enough charge left then there’s a possibility that the Bluetooth feature will not work. If this is the culprit then all you need to do to fix this is to charge the speaker.
- Insert the charging cord into the charging port of the speaker.
- Connect the power adapter to a power outlet.
Leave this charging for at least 3.5 hours then check if the issue still occurs.
Method 4: Device is not in range
In order for the Bluetooth connection to work properly the speaker and device it is connecting to should be not more than 100 feet away from each other. This range will decrease if there are a lot of obstructions or signal interferences such as walls between both devices.
Try placing the speaker and the device it is connecting to side by side then check if the problem still occurs.
