How do I get my bluetooth speakers to work correctly?

Asked by LePoissons (27points) December 11th, 2013

I just bought a new bluetooth speaker today (Rockbox by Urban Beatz), and I can’t get it to work right. I was able to connect it with both my phone and my computer and it worked for a bit, but then when I tried to reconnect after shutting the speakers off, all it does is make a strange garbled noise. Kind of like muted random blips. It shows that my music is playing on my computer/phone, but the speakers aren’t playing anything.

I would consult the manual about this issue, but unfortunately, I left it in the box at my mom’s house. I’ve also tried googling the problem a hundred different ways with no luck. Thanks for any and all help!

(my computer is an HP envy m6 with windows 8.1 and I have a iphone 4s with iOS7, if any of that info helps)

Are both your phone and computer trying to connect to the speakers at the same time? That might confuse the speakers and result in odd behavior.

@jerv I’ve tried turning off my phone bluetooth and it’s still doing this funky thing. I’m not too sure what’s going on anymore :-(

Does the battery in your Bluetooth speaker have enough charge? My speaker kinda makes a sound like that when it needs to be recharged.

I also have that. It worked fine until it ran out of battery. Now it won’t charge. I would like to find out if I can fix that too. I also threw that info away. It was after it’s first use too.

Just try resetting it, or if the bluetooth device is already paired , delete that device from the paired devices list and create new pairing with the device. It worked for my Supertooth Bluetooth speakers. They are working fine.
