Its stuck in demo mode.

Just plug in and then when it's on hold the volume up bottom and the JBL connect button at the same time for like 15 seconds. Then it should be ok to be turned off and then unplugged and used again.

Hope it helps you.

Hi there Ryan, my JBL pulse 3 has a similar issue. It does not turn on at all even after putting it on charge for many hours. So without getting it ON, I can't really get any step further


Hi Ryan, my JBL pulse 3 was with the same issue. but after i putting it on charge and click the 2 buttons it came back to normal, it helped me a lot. Thanks


Thank you Ryan ... I have been frustrated for weeks, not wanting to purchase a new one. You saved me over $150 thank you, thank you, thank you!


My problem is the same as (faustin_mathew). It has been already fully charged but it will not turn ON..... I have tried your suggestions even though I didn’t think it would work because you said to press those particular buttons when the power was on. Again, I cannot even get it to power on. Please help.


Also same problem and almost new

Change the charger , use the different plug point. When u reset don’t connect the plug. Press play and volume up bottom for about 10 sec and then press only power button then

Connect the charger Do it 3 or 4 times it I’ll resolve.
