Device Not Connecting Via Bluetooth / Audio Jack ¶
Cannot get your device to play on the MagicBox II by using Bluetooth or the Audio jack
Device not connecting Via Bluetooth ¶
First be sure that the MagicBox II has a full charge. Then make sure that the audio cable is not plugged in. Next, check that the MagicBox II is not connected with any other device. To disconnect the MagicBox II from any device to which it was previously connected press and hold the play/pause button for 5 seconds until blue light starts flashing. This means that the Bluetooth is now ready to pair with a new device. If this does not work, it is possible that the Bluetooth sensor is damaged and may need to be replaced. See our step by step DKnight Magicbox II Motherboard Replacement Guide
Device not connecting via audio jack ¶
First try turning the MagicBox II on and off. Next, plug one end of the aux cord into the MagicBox II and the other into your device. If this does not work, you may need to replace the Auxiliary Audio Port see Step-by-step DKnight Magicbox II Motherboard Replacement Guide.
Sound quality is poor ¶
The sound coming from the speaker is not playing at 100%, or the sound emitting from the speaker is poor/crackling
Too far from device ¶
Be sure the connected device is within 30 feet of the speaker. Objects in the way of the two connected devices like a wall could distort the sound. If you cannot see both the speaker and the connected device then they are too far apart.
Damaged speaker ¶
A blown speaker could be the problem and it will need to be checked. This will consist of taking the speaker apart and removing it. Please flow the trouble shooting guide.
