Introduction

A very common problem with the speaker is that the headset and the transmitter de-sync. To solve this, refer to the Astro A50 user manual and re-sync your transmitter and the headset. If it's still not working , the soldering on the mic port might have come off and you will need to re-solder the wire to the speaker. To do this follow these steps:

What type of screwdriver is needed in order to do this?

  • Then you will see more screws around the now silver edge and a black cushioning pad in the middle. The number of screws depends on the speaker you are replacing, one side has 2 screws while the other has 4.

  • After that take off the cover. If the speaker is still connected and no wires are visibly damaged, then the speaker(s) is not the problem with your device. Please refer back to the troubleshooting page and make sure that the Astro A50 has the newest firmware, etc. If the wire is not connected continue to the next step.

  • To reconnect the wire you will need to solder the wire back to the mic port. If you need help soldering refer to the soldering guide here.

  • If there is still no sound or static, then the speaker might be “blown” and/or needs to be replaced completely. If so, please order a new speaker and follow the same steps to replace the whole speaker.
