my Jbl charge is bass boosted beyond compare, so much so, that i can't hear the audio in the songs i listen to, just the bass

Asked by: gusta
It is possible that the sound settings of your music player is not configured correctly. Try using a different music player app, and try pairing with a different device, to see if you can determine where the problem is. If it only happens with one app or device, the problem is not in the CHARGE. If it happens with all apps and/or devices, try performing a hardware reset. RESET: In Power ON mode, press the Power and the Volume Minus buttons simultaneously. The Charge now turns off, and when you turn it on again, it has been reset.

Bluetooth is not working anymore. I tried reseting but doesnt work either. Tried pressing for 3 secs the power button but doesnt even flash. What can I do? Also none of the buttons work except for the power one.

Asked by: Sandermercado
Thank you for the inquiry. Please disconnect/unpair all source devices. Please allow the battery to completely discharge. Please recharge the battery using another cable at an alternate power source if available and test. If the issue is unresolved please contact the dealer or retailer for return/exchange/service information. Best Regards.
