Clear Obstructions Between the Device and the OontZ Angle 3 ¶ 

If there are objects in between the device and the OontZ Angle 3 or if the device and the OontZ Angle 3 are out of range of one another the Bluetooth connection may be too weak to connect the devices.

Motherboard May Need to be Replaced ¶ 

If the device is connected with Bluetooth and the volume controls still don’t work, the issue is in the motherboard not responding to the buttons being pressed. Use the Motherboard Replacement Guide to replace the faulty motherboard and the volume controls should start being registered.

If there is a weak connection the sound quality will be poor. Try clearing obstructions and keeping the speaker near the device to maintain a strong connection.

Battery May Need to be Charged ¶ 

The OontZ Angle 3 may just need to be recharged. When the battery of the OontZ Angle 3 is running low, the sound quality of the speakers slowly gets worse. Try plugging it in with any micro USB charger and the OontZ Angle 3 should be able to be turned on.

Speakers May be Dusty/Dirty ¶ 

The sound coming from the speakers can come out distorted or muffled due to there being a buildup of dust or dirt on the speakers. Use the Speaker Replacement Guide to open up access to the speakers and clean out whatever dust or dirt may be present.

Was using my speaker a Lil while to listen to music and it stopped playing. Checked the connection and everything was okay, battery was good, showed that the music was still playing on my phone but no sound was coming from the speaker. Disconnected it and reconnected but it repeatedly stopped playing. HELP!

Happening to me too. The speaker works, though, if i use the 3mm jack to connect to my device. Now I think there's something wrong with the bluetooth receiver of the speaker, it might require a motherboard replacement

I have the 3xl version and i was playing music with it charging and all of the sudden it started puffing out smoke in all directions it still kept playing music but i turned it off to cool and unplugged it after letting it cool for a few minutes it no longer smoked any ideas what the problem could be.

I was listening to music with it paired to my iphone and it stopped playing. Now when I turn it on I get the power light flashes 1x, then 2x, then 3x, then 1x and it stops. Bluetooth light never comes on.
