Bluetooth Headphone Not Working







bluetooth headphone repair

Received one Bluetooth Headphone for repair.

Problem reported by the customer: Headphone is not turning ON.

On initial inspection I found headphone is not turning ON but it is working OK on Aux Cable. Here headphone is not working because it does not power ON. Bluetooth is required Power to turn “ON” & through Aux cable it runs directly connected to the device it does not required Power. So for further inspection I opened the one side of the head unit which is having charging port.

Here reported no power ON issue Leads suspected area to battery section. I checked this side of the section it doesn’t have battery this side.

So I have to open another head device to reach battery section.

Checked battery charging circuit output voltage, it is showing 4.17v DC seems ok.

Suspecting battery is not charging because of open circuit; so to confirm the same I re soldered the battery on charging wires & kept the unit for charging for 3 Hrs. Then I checked voltages on the battery & now battery is showing 3.9v

    Nice catch! I like to upgrade the battery with larger capacity ones that I pull from other devices.

    i have exactly the same speaker in my shop that belongs to my nephew. the main problem with it is the actual speaker, there is sound only on the right side of the speaker and upon testing, the speaker is open and needed a new one but was costly to buy. thanks for sharing and have a blessed day

    These 3.7V Li-Ion Lithium Li-Po Polymer battery packs, like the 230mAh 402030 packs are often bulged and defect. And used in smartwatches and other portable devices. Luckily you found your LiPo was still in good condition here.
