Oakley thump pro 05-175


From what I understand you are charging with the USB cable. Did you leave it in at least for 3 hours (the PC also has to be on and not in standy or hibernation mode)? Do the glasses charge with the wall charger?

Your question does not really help me with working out the problem, check out my website. Orokrs have several problems, mostly battery and sweat damge will be the cause, or someone has opened them! I see Thumps and Orokrs that have been sent to me for repair, returned to the customer unfixable with a clear description of why, only to see them listed on eBay as not charging or wont turn on, not tested ect.

My oakley thump pro is charged but will not turn on

If you cannot get the unit toturn on try resetting them by holding down the play/pause button and the previous song/rewind button at the same time and after it resets if it still does not work you might have to go on oakleys website and update the software/firmware but this will delete your playlist. Hope this helps.

Oakley thump pro glasses wont charge

Check to make sure you are using the USB cable that came with them. Although other cables plug in they create the problem you have. I have had a similar experience.
