20 Most Recent JBL ONSTAGE Docking Station for iPod Questions & Answers

First, I know nothing at all about ipods. However, I am a decent electronics guy. Obviously, one end of the power cord plugs into a wall outlet; the other connects to the station. How? Does the cord simply disappear inside the station, or is there some kind of connecting plug? Which end is frayed? If it's at the wall plug end, you could simply cut the wire (unplug it first !!!) above the fray and wire in a new standard wall plug. You can do the same on the station end if the wire runs directly into the unit AND if you can get in there to reconnect the wire. If, on the other hand, the wire is attached to the station via some sort of power plug (like a printer for example), you'd better leave that puppy alone and invest in a new docking station or new power cord. You'd also better stop using the unit unless you can fix it. Bare wires spell tripped breakers and danger of injury.

fault is from the button of the unit. There is every tendency that the button is not contacting the panel inside the unit, that is why it is not responding.
You need to disassemble the unit to find out.
Get a screw driver that can fit into the unit, unscrew all screws. Use a flat screw drive to pry the unit from the side in order to take the cover/case apart.
Locate the volume part, turn on the unit and press the volume button directly on the panel. If the volume works, it means there was not contact that why the volume didn't work.
But it the volume still doesn't work, then problem is from the control board.
Perform the above task and let me know the out come.
I hope you understand the message I am trying to pass across. And I hope it makes sense to you.

For the JBL Awake
I just had the same issue and i found a way to solve this :
1. Unplug the power supply
2. Plug it back while holding the [ON/OFF] button
3. The screen shows “UP9” again
4. Do the update with the JBL Music app (I did it with my old iPhone 4s plugged on the 30pin connector)
5. Finish the firmware update ... until the app tells you to unplug the power before restarting the device
(Sorry for my bad English, i’m French)

Check there is a signal going to it.
Check the amplifier is working.
Check the bass speaker is not blown.

Assuming Bluetooth mode. Insure Bluetooth is enabled on the iPad and the JBL and that they are in the pairing mode.

Sometimes I find it necessary to restart a device to get its Bluetooth pairing mode to connect to the device I am trying to connect it to, such as a speaker or even my car.

Try doing default factory settings.
Step 1. Press the "Power" button located on the top center part of your JBL Charge 4 Bluetooth speaker. The speaker will be powered on when the LED backlight under the Power button is lit.
Step 2. Hold down the "Bluetooth" and "Volume Up" buttons at the same time for roughly three seconds. The Volume Up button looks like a plus sign. Additionally, it's important to hold down the "Bluetooth" button in the center of the device next to the Power button, as it's easier to hold down. After three seconds, the LED ring around the Power and Bluetooth buttons will briefly light up before the JBL Charge 4 powers down.
Step 3. Press the "Power" button again to turn the JBL Charge 4 Bluetooth speaker back on. The Charge 4 will instantly turn on in Discovery mode, with the Bluetooth LED blinking on and off, and the speaker making a pinging sound. This confirms that you've successfully reset your JBL Charge 4 to its default factory settings. You'll need to pair or re-pair any devices you want to play audio through the JBL Charge 4 speakers with the device.

That is a bluetooth speaker sir. Standard device. ANY device with bluetooth should be able to use the speaker with no drivers other than the ones included on the playing device
