Won't even turn on
My beats won't even turn on. Won't charge, nothing. Went to a repairer who said Apple will send a refurb pair if I pay $275. Is there a cheaper way to fix them?
The world’s most famous headphone has been completely redesigned and reimagined. The new Beats Studio is lighter, sexier, stronger, and more comfortable, with precision sound, Adaptive Noise Canceling, a 20-hour rechargeable battery, and RemoteTalk. It has all the energy and excitement you expect from Beats, plus a powerful, reengineered sound.
I found a solution to this problem you just hold down the power button and the mute button for 2mins, make sure you press both of them down and make sure you press them down for 2mins no less than that. Then the leds should flash and the headphones should work.
If your Studio or Studio Wireless headphones aren’t charging properly or you’re having difficulties with sound, try resetting your headphones.
Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds
Release the button
The Fuel Gauge LEDs will all blink white, followed by one blinking red
When the lights stop flashing, reset is complete
Your Studios will automatically power on after a successful reset
This feature helped me.
Hope it will help you too.
What's going on?
I just had this happen to me. Came home from work and just wanted to listen to music but my Beats wouldnt turn on! I quickly searched and found this forum. Nothing helped my situationand on the Web. I did try this next thing and it worked for me!
The Beats lights would not turn on for nothing. I couldn't even get a red light! So I plugged them up after trying every reset possible (still no lights on). I then ran to Walmart to buy some back up headphones and to get an oil change on my car (was gone about two hours). When I came back, I held my power button down for about 10 seconds and it finally reset! Now it's working again! This worked for me and I hope it works for you!
(Also FYI only use a Beats charger to prevent over charging or damage to the battery)
If the hard reset technique doesn't work, you may be out of luck. I talked extensively with Apple Support about it as well, and they have no further documentation or troubleshooting techniques. Mine would be charged (tested - the battery had a full voltage) and would turn off after only a few seconds of listening at any volume level. The amount of time would vary based on how long it had been after a hard reset.
The "repair cost" of Apple makes sense because they probably don't even attempt repair. The circuit board inside the headphones all but requires damage to be disassembled, and Apple would not return a damaged product.
If you're curious, take a look at the teardown guide that I will be making in the next few days.
I have the wireless beats that just have the white light on and nothing happens. I've tried holding the power down, holding the power and the mute down as well as holding the power and the volume down. Nothing works! The light won't turn off an nothing happens! Please help!
Hey guys I'm so depressed right now, I have beats studio wireless, the other day I over charged it and it shows red flash and stuff, so I tried to reset it and it still doesn't work, even the one holding the power button and the mute button for 2 minutes, and than I confused so I tried to hold the power button and the volume down button for like a minute or two, and suddenly it's dead, and I tried to do it again to turn it on but it's dead until now, please it's been 4 months it doesn't works. please give me solution i really need it, any advice I would appreciate it
Your Studios do not turn on or seem to charge because the wires on your circuit board in your right ear have loosened or broke, due to improper jack or charger insertion. Fold your left ear, unclip your right ear cushion, then unscrew the 3 screws which are on the plastic part of the headphone not the alluminium part. You will see several dry joints on a small circuit board. 3 or 2 wires should be broken, one to send power to your right ear which should be gold and red. or either a black or red wire for your battery. bottom line, solder them back
I have the same problem but the lights on my headphones just stay on when i hold they power button for 3-4 seconds then after that after 3 seconds they turn off there charging right now the red light is suppose to show but it wont it did last night but now there not charging what do i do?
Im having this issue with my beats solo 3. They have trouble turning on and when they do they either turn off again or connect to my phone for only 5 seconds. I've tried charging them, and ive tried all the reset techniques. I even called the apple care line and all they said is to try the reset teniques again or go to the website that updates beats to see if they need an update (whitch they don't).
Is there a solution to this?
If not do you think it chip or the battery?
I'm having the same problem. I get the two red bleeps and then a couple of white lines and then it just beeps red again and dies. I just don't feel like they're dead, just not alive. Any other suggestions would be helpful. I've tried all the reset methods so far. Any new ideas?
Mine would appear like they weren't charging, and when I tried to get them on I got the red flashing light, but when I went on the beats updater it said they were at 99% battery... I reset mine like a thousand times and nothing happened, but now they are working if I reset them, plug them in to charge, and then press the power on. Can't unplug them or turn them off without causing the cycle to start over again but it seems to be working for now....my warranty with apple is up and I'm not paying to repair or replace them so hopefully this resolves on its own...
Wow so I’m not the only one with issues apparently. Only have used my beats3 three dang times and now they won’t connect. Power light is stuck on and won’t turn off or do the reset. Nothing. I guess I’ll let them run out of charge and see if that works. They are seriously brand new!
Beta Solo 3 wireless.
One white led light stays on (ocassionally), won't charge, won't power on or off, will not reset (volume down and power button or mute and power button) and these are 15 months old, never abused, used authentic chargers and SUDDENLY STOPS working!!!! Of course outside of warantee!!! So upset that $300.00 headphones are an EPIC fail!
