My Beats Studio 3 Wireless Won't Charge,
“Most likely”, the battery is simply just not charging the battery at all.
That said, my “Beats won’t charge anymore” situation can’t be a strange one. Could be your issue too.
SYMPTOMS and DIAGNOSIS: I can connect the USB charging cable (connected to the Wall-wart in “charge mode”) and jiggle/move it around and frequently it will make the (normal) charging lights come on. When I let go of the pressure, charging stops and the RED slow blinking single light starts up. It fades out after a while. Never charges.
To test the connector without disassembly, I used one of those colorful giant rubber band style “wrist bands” folks use for advertising promotions to physically hold the Male USB connecter FIRMLY INTO the USB port on my Beats Studio 2 Wireless headset. The pressure from the rubber band firmly pushing the cable head at a slight angle from perpendicular into the USB connector on the headset actually worked. The unit finally fully charged in 2 hours, but I cannot figure out HOW to get into the unit to repair/re-secure the Female USB connector on my Beats Headset without destroying it. I am an amateur and won’t risk them becoming landfill material just yet. They work great when they work.
Could I perhaps take this unit to a “Repair Shop” like UBreak-iFix and get it repaired for a reasonable price (like $30-$50)? This has to be a pretty simple repair to the case structure holding the female USB connector component to the main board or possibly a simple re-solder to the connector with a “Superglue” repair story. I just dont know how to get in there to judge the situation without doing more damage to the case or connector or worse, breaking something else I can’t fix at all.
CONFESSION: I believe this headset was accidently knocked to the floor with the charging cable inserted into the USB port. Bet that’s how the “damage” occurred. Something around that cable head probably “gave” on impact.
LASTLY: Would I need to get new ear pad(s)/cup(s) if a repair person has to “go in” for an “internal” repair/replace of the the Female USB connector to make it properly charge again?
Love to get this headset repaired . Been unable to use for like 2 years now… well, except for the time I used the rubber band thingy to make the charging cable finally work… Thanks in advance for any ideas or help offered. Love my Beats…
