We explain how to turn on the JBL Flip 6 BT speaker here. Now most speakers have a Power button that they prominently position on the unit so it’s easy to find. Indeed, this speaker is no exception to this pattern, as we find its Power button on the button panel, as we see next.
There’s also a status lamp inside the Power button, that starts glowing when the speaker powers up, as we point out in the next picture.
This lamp is dark when the speaker is OFF, as seen above.
How to Turn On the JBL Flip 6
To power up this speaker, press the Power button. Then release after a quarter second or so. Moreover, you needn’t hold it in for too long for the unit to see your press and then turn itself on.
When the speaker comes on, the status lamp glows, and the unit makes a rising pitch guitar strum to let you know that it is now running.
But if pressing the Power button does not start up the speaker, or if the battery level gauge blinks red, it could be that you need to recharge the speaker. So if the unit won’t come on, try connecting a USB charger to it. You can indeed play the speaker while it charges. Or you may have a bad charger or charger cable. The battery could be faulty too. Or, the unit may be in Service Mode. We discuss all of these issues here, and how to resolve them.
But if after all these checks the speaker still does not turn on, then the unit itself may be defective. In that case, get a new one. Or get someone to repair it for you. Or tackle the job yourself if you can get the parts you need.
