Why Does My Jbl Speaker Keep Turning Off

If you’re a music lover like most of us here at JBL, then the chances are that your speakers have become one of your favorite accessories. Your JBL speakers are probably some of the first things you reach for when you get home from work or school and may even be the first thing you pack in your bag when you go on a trip or somewhere else. But what if your JBL speaker keeps turning off? That’s not exactly ideal, is it? Well, don’t worry! There are actually several reasons why this might be happening and we’ve got all the answers right here. With just a few simple changes to your speaker set-up or audio settings, you can get your JBL speaker back up and running smoothly again. Let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons why this might be happening

Why Does My Jbl Speaker Keep Turning Off?

The first and most common reason why a JBL speaker might keep turning off is that it’s getting too hot. Speakers are basically just an intricate system of wires and circuits which make a sound. It’s the sound that we hear coming from the speakers, but it’s these wires and circuits that do all of the work in producing the sound. As you use the speakers, the wires and circuits will heat up. This is normal, but if they get too hot then they can become damaged or even catch fire. It’s important to keep your speakers on a flat surface so that they’re not bumping around or being jostled by anything else in your bag or case. 

Your JBL Speaker Keep Turning Off Due to a Loose Connection

  • If your JBL speaker keeps turning off, it could be because of a loose connection. This happens when the wire that connects your speaker to the power source or to your device is not connected properly. Check to make sure that all wires are firmly in place and if they are, then you may want to consider changing the wires themselves. Wires can become loose over time and this is especially true if you’ve been moving your JBL speakers around a lot. This will cause them to be exposed to more wear and tear which will eventually lead to a loose connection.
  • If you’re still having problems with your JBL speaker turning off, then it could be due to a loose wire connection on the inside of your speaker as well. The wires on the inside of your speakers can become loose from time to time which will cause them not to connect properly with their corresponding components inside the speaker itself. In order for this issue to be fixed permanently, you’ll have to have your speaker professionally serviced.

Your Speaker’s USB Port is Disconnected

  1. If your JBL speaker keeps turning off, the first thing you should do is check to see if your speaker’s USB port is still connected. Sometimes, when you’re carrying your speaker from one place to another or if there’s too much movement, the USB port can disconnect and cause your speaker to turn off. The easiest way to fix this is just to reconnect the USB cable and make sure it’s securely in place.
  2. If the problem persists, it could be that something is actually wrong with your JBL speaker’s internal circuitry. This can happen if there was a power surge or some other kind of electric issue that affected the wiring inside of your speakers. If this happens, you may need to take it to an authorized repair center for further inspection and possible repair or replacement.
  3. Another reason why this might be happening is that you haven’t installed the latest software update for your speaker. The software update for your JBL speaker may actually fix any existing issues or errors and can prevent future ones as well.
  4. If you’re using an older version of the JBL Connect App, these issues could also be related to a faulty or outdated app. To fix this, you should update your app to the latest version and see if that fixes the issue.

Your JBL Speaker is Out of Battery

  • This is the most obvious reason why your JBL speaker keeps turning off. If you’re using a wired connection, then check the power cable and ensure that it’s plugged in securely to both your speakers and the power source. If you’re using a wireless connection, then make sure that you have enough battery charge on your device for it to connect to your speakers. If your device is a laptop or computer, then make sure that it has enough charge for wireless connections. Also, if you’re using an external sound card, plug it in as well.
  • If this is the case, there are two possibilities: either your phone has no available storage space left or there isn’t enough charge left on its battery for audio streaming. To avoid this issue in the future, either delete some of the unnecessary files on your phone or connect your phone to a power source.
  • If you’re using a laptop, then the same applies here as with the phone. If you’re using a desktop computer, then there may be too many open programs running on your computer for it to handle audio streaming properly. Close all the unnecessary apps and try playing music from your computer again. If this doesn’t help, try connecting your computer to a power source so that it doesn’t run out of charge while trying to stream audio from it.

The Software is Out of Date

  1. Your JBL speaker keeps turning off if you have software that’s out of date. This could be the software on your phone or tablet or the software in the speaker itself. If your speaker has a software update, then it’s likely this is what’s causing your issue.
  2. You may also want to check to make sure that you aren’t using an outdated version of your audio player or music app. If you are, it might be time to update it!
  3. Another common reason why your JBL speaker keeps turning off is that the settings are turned off on either the speaker itself or on your device. You might need to adjust these settings so that they work with each other better and don’t turn off as soon as one of them stops playing a song!
  4. Check for any additional features like sleep timers or alarms. If you have either of these features on, then it could be that your speaker is turning off because it’s supposed to.
  5. You might also want to check the settings on your phone or tablet if you’re using one to play music. If there are any features that turn off the screen or lock the device, then this could be contributing to your problem as well!
  6. Some speakers have a built-in timer that will turn the speaker off automatically after a certain amount of time has passed, so make sure to check for this feature as well!

There’s a Firmware Update Available

  • Your speakers are not compatible with the new firmware update.

If you’ve got a pair of JBL speakers and they keep turning off, then it’s quite possible that you’ve got an older model that doesn’t support the latest firmware. This is especially true if your speakers have been around for a long time and are still working just fine despite the lack of updates. Everyone knows how frustrating it can be when all your favorite gadgets stop working properly, so make sure to check with your manufacturer if you think this might be the case.

  • Your speakers are not charging properly or are simply out of juice completely.

Another common reason why your JBL speaker keeps turning off is that it’s simply out of charge and needs recharging. If this is the case, then there are simple steps that you can take to get things back up and running again as quickly as possible

  • The audio cable is not connected properly.

If you’ve got a pair of JBL speakers and they keep turning off, it may be that your audio cable isn’t connected properly. Simply check to make sure that the cable is plugged in properly, and then give it some time to charge before you try using it again.

Your JBL Speaker Keep Turning Off Due to Audio Quality

  • Your Audio Quality Isn’t Good Enough

If you’ve got a device that’s hooked up to your JBL speaker, then it’s likely that the quality of the audio is going to be the main culprit here. When you go to play a song or playlist on your JBL speaker, it will typically playback at a lower bitrate than the medium or high-quality setting. This means that your music isn’t going to sound as good as it could on other devices. If you want great quality when listening to music on your JBL speaker, make sure that you have the highest quality setting enabled for each individual device connected to your speakers.

  • Your Speakers Are Too Close To Each Other

If you have two JBL speakers hooked up together, then they tend to get very loud and very close together when playing music from both of them at once. It can actually increase the likelihood of the speakers turning off because they are so close together. 

  • Your Audio Settings Are Too Loud

If you’ve got your JBL speaker set on high volume and your audio quality is too low, then this could also be why it keeps turning off. When you’re listening to music through your speaker set-up, make sure that you keep the volume at a moderate level at all times so that it doesn’t get too loud for both of your ears. If this isn’t possible because of where you are using your speakers, then try turning down the volume slightly on each individual device connected to each speaker and see if that helps.

Conclusion

If your JBL speaker keeps turning off, it’s worth checking whether there’s an update available for the software or firmware. This may simply be a case of your speaker being out of date and needing an update to function properly. If all else fails, you can always reach out to the JBL support team. They’re a friendly bunch and will be more than happy to help you get your JBL speaker up and running smoothly again. With a few simple changes to your speaker set-up, you should be able to get your JBL speaker back up and running smoothly again in no time.
