Bose Soundlink III Speaker randomly turns off


Does anyone else have a Bose Soundlink III speaker? I have one and it randomly turns off for no apparent reason. I’ve seen others state they have this problem too but there doesn’t seem to be a repair or viable fix.

Usually after one shutoff, it won’t shut itself off again for a while, but it’s so annoying. Any solutions?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same issue. The unit will turn off while listening to music and even though it is permanently plugged into the power the charging indicator starts blinking like the battery is charging! Powering on the unit again usually allows it to work again for awhile. Most frustrating issue. I suspect somehow the charging/battery monitoring section is causing some issue. does anyone know if the unit will work with the battery removed? Maybe worth a try to see if that resolves the issue. I always use the unit plugged into the power so it wont be a big loss for me.

Same problem, and the blutooth disconnects and reconnects often, which is extremely annoying. I suspect a damaged circuit…
