JBL flip 3 won't connect via bluetooth

The speaker will register on my Samsung tablet when searched but won't pair to play any sound unless I use an AV wire. IS there a way to reset the speaker? Or any other solutions please and thank you

Hi,

Just verifying that it pairs OK but no audio on BT but when you connect an A/V cable it still stays paired and the audio works on the AV, is this correct?

Just wondering if you have a faulty AV socket and that is stopping the audio from the BT. Either because the BT input source is not connected properly or because the speaker thinks its' still connected to the AV.

Not sure about your speaker but in some there is either a set of changeover contacts in the AV socket itself which changeover when a plug is inserted, to switch the audio input connection to the amp in the speaker away from the BT and onto the AV or there is a contact in the AV socket itself that operates when the AV plug is inserted that "informs" the speaker to electronically switch the source of the audio away from the BT and onto the AV.
