Only turning on while plugged in

Hi,

I recently bought a JBL charge 3. Since today, it won't turn on when it's not plugged in. I didn't blow it and the battery is full (all 5 light are on). How can I fix this or do I have to go back to the store?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem. Tried everything. I press the power button but blue light turns on for one second and then turns off. The white blinking light is constantly on. It won’t charge. Completely brand new arrived yesterday and it worked for 10 min and battery dieded.when I turn it on and press Bluetooth and volume up it completely turns off and I unplugged it and it’s just black. When I plug it back in white light comes back

just did the update… it killed myJBL Charge 3 no power after update.

1) my device is fully charged.

2) i tried every combination possible… no good!

There is no lights out power and the charge does nothing to help… I've tried plugged in and not plugged in… no good.

it's totally dead :-(

Same problem here :( Now I'm trying to find any solution, hopefully there is a way to fix it somehow...

Same problem here I’ve tried everything, is it maybe a hardware problem where something has to be fixed/replaces?

You need to charge your jbl and when the power button turns on you have to press the volume+ and the connect button at the same time until it shuts of.

Then you pull the cable out and start it
