JBL Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

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)

The controls for the JBL Charge 3 are up top and you have volume up and down, Bluetooth pair, power, play/pause, and a button to link this device to other JBL speakers. There is no skip button, but if you hit the play button twice quickly it will skip to the next song

The service manual is posted in this but if you dont have the test gear that is required, it is not much use. https://www.scribd.com/document/143852098/PB12-JBL-pdf

You need to gently prise off the front speaker grill. You could use a blunt pen knife to do this. After you remove the grill You will see 4 additional screws at roughly each corner of the front panel. Unscrew them and then you can use the pen knife once more to prise apart the speaker housing. Prise the housing apart from the top because two base pads hold both halves together at the bottom. I hope this helps! :)

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

Just visit the site linked here; only and if you're technically qualified. If not, contact any service technician to repair this set.
If you're aware, you'll get something. If not nothing. OK?
