When Beats Studio wireless headphones don’t charge, they’ll eventually turn off due to low battery. Therefore, you won’t be able to turn them on.
The most common cause is usually the charging cables. However, other reasons include a damaged charging case or pins in your charger. To know the exact cause, follow this troubleshooting guide:
Troubleshooting Beats Studio wireless headphones that won’t charge
To troubleshoot Beats Studio wireless headphones that won’t work, try out the following steps in order.
1. Restart your headphones
Restarting your Beats wireless headphones is the first solution you can try to fix charging issues on LG Studio headphones.
Turn off your Beats headphones by pressing the power button until the headphones turn off. Wait for a few seconds before turning them back on.
Try charging your headphones again. If they still don’t charge, then proceed to the next step.
2. Check the cables and power socket
Broken cables or an issue with the power source could be why your headphones are not charging.
You can tell if the issue comes from the charging cable by trying it out on another case or a different device using micro-USB or a similar port to your version of Beats Studio Wireless headphones.
Change your charging socket or use a different plug. Consider using your computer’s USB port if no plug or socket is available. Observer if your beats headphones are working.
2. Force restart your headphones
If the first two steps didn’t work, you should try to force restart your headphones. You can do this by connecting the Beats headphones to a power source. Next, press the volume down and power button until the light flashes.
From there, you can check whether your headphones are charging. The process for force restarting your headphones may vary depending on the version of your Beats Studio wireless headphones you have.
3. Check the charging lights
Your headphone’s charging lights may be faulty and indicate that they are not charging when in fact they are.
For example, a solid red light means the battery is low, while a flashing red light indicates the battery is dying.
It may also mean that the headphones need to be reset, which you should do so immediately. Follow the steps we provided earlier.
5. Unpair and pair back the Beats Studio headphones
The headphones may be experiencing temporary glitches and bugs, causing them to fail to turn on. If this is the case, you can troubleshoot the problem by disconnecting it from the paired device and then pairing it again.
It is possible by using the following step-by-step procedure:
- Launch the Settings menu on your phone.
- Tap on Bluetooth.
- The My Devices option will show the devices paired with your iPhone.
- To display options, tap on the ‘i’ icon next to the Beats Studio Wireless Headphones.
- Tap on Forget this device and then select Forget Device.
- Search for the device and pair it to your phone.
6. Use another charging cable
Switch charging cables to determine if the problem was actually caused by a broken cable.
You can then use the cable to charge the headphones. If they start charging, then you need to get a new cable. If not, then proceed to the next step.
7. Clean the charging case
If either method does not solve your headphone’s charging status, you can try to clean the charging case or port gently. An accumulation of dirt, dust, and moisture may prohibit your headphones from charging. You can clean it using a microfiber cloth and a paperclip to eliminate the residuals.
Q-tips and rubbing alcohol are also cleaning agents that clean the case and charging pins. You should be cautious when cleaning your headphones, especially on fragile areas such as the case, cable, and pins.
Once cleaned, you can check whether the charging status has been restored.
