JBL Xtreme Troubleshooting

This page focuses on diagnosing issues with the JBL Xtreme Bluetooth speaker released in July 2015.

Battery Fails to Charge

The device is plugged into a power source, but the battery won’t charge.

Bad Battery

Batteries degrade over time. If the power light fails to illuminate and the speaker won't make any noise the battery may be dead. Open the device and replace the battery.

Bad Charging Cable

Wear to the power cable may cause it to fail. If the cable exhibits signs of wear and the device fails to charge, try using a new cable to see if the device will charge.

Broken Charging Port

Charging port on the device may be broken due to wear. Disassemble the device and replace the charging port.

Bluetooth Connection Doesn’t Work

Cannot pair other devices via Bluetooth.

Too Many Devices

Another device may be connected to the speaker. Check for nearby devices and unpair them, then try to pair your preferred device again. You can force an unpair by reseting the device to factory defaults. See below how to do this.

Damaged Bluetooth

The Bluetooth chip in the device may be damaged. A damaged chip will prevent the device from pairing via Bluetooth. Disassemble the device and replace the Bluetooth chip.

Device Needs To Be Reset

While the device is powered on, press and hold the ‘Play’ and ‘Volume Up’ buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds to factory reset the device.

Vibration in the speaker, intermittent sound, or no sound at all.

Check the power light on the device to make sure it's maintaining power. If the device loses power quickly after charging, the battery should be replace.

Check for Speaker Damage

Inspect the speaker for cracks or debris. If the speaker is damaged, disassemble the device and replace the speaker.

No Sound at All

Audio Issues When Using Aux In

Clean the Aux In Port

Locate the port labeled “Aux In” and use compressed air to clean out any dust or dirt that may be trapped in there, then try using the port again.

Check Aux In Connection

Make sure that the Aux In cable is seated properly and has a steady connection. If the Aux In connection has persistent issues, it may be damaged. Open the device and replace the connector.

A Button Doesn’t Function

Attempt to Unstick the Button

The button may be stuck. Turn off the device and lightly press the button for several seconds. Attempt to unstick the button by gently pressing it repeatedly. If the button fails to respond or responds only intermittently, disassemble the device and inspect the rubber membrane and contacts for wear, Replace as necessary.
