JBL red light, and is not turning on!

Hello!

after using the JBL for 7 hours, it stopped working and turned on a flashing red led on the bottom of the box! I can’t turn on and i can’t turn off! it only turn off when the battery runs out, and when I put it to charge it does not turn on and continues with the red led lit on the bottom! Anybody know? thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I fixed the issue on my Extreme2 but holding the power and volume + buttons down at the same time until I heard a response. The response I got was the same sound you hear when you are trying to raise the volume and are already at top end….. I powered down the unit and when I turned it on problem solved….. I had read various accounts/remedies online as well and was grasping at straws when I got this routine to work for me….

I have an Xtreme 2 and this happened to me while attempting to activate “low frequency mode". However my speaker was plugged into the wall when it happened, I simply just unplugged it and plugged it back in and it turned back on. Try plugging it in if it wasn't already plugged in.
