Volume is turned off on speaker or device
Make sure that the volume on the speakers is turned up sufficiently enough by adjusting the volume wheel on the speaker. Then make sure that the device connected to the speaker has its volume setting at an adequate level.
Bluetooth connection is not established
Make sure that Bluetooth on the speaker is on. This is the button close to the power button. There should be a light to indicate it is working.
If the speaker is within close proximity to devices that are known to cause interference, (radios, microwaves, phones), then the speaker can give out feed back. Make sure it is a good distance away from devices that are known to cause interference.
