We know how annoying this situation can be especially when you are going to use headphones for your workout. To avoid this problem and find a possible solution, we did some digging on this topic.
After an hour of digging and research, we were finally able to come up with not only solutions to this issue but also the main reasons behind this problem. This article will explain everything you are looking for which is why we highly recommend you to read it till the end.
Why is Jabra Elite 85T Left or Right Earbud Not Working
Before going to the solution part of this problem it is much better to understand the root cause of the issue. Once you figure out what causes the problem, fixing it is just a matter of time and your efforts.
Let’s take a look and see what are the reasons why the left or right earbud of the Jabra Elite 85t stops working.
1. The Battery is Empty
The first reason why the Jabra Elite 85T earbuds stop working is that the battery has run out of power. When the battery runs out of power, the device becomes inoperable. The problem with Jabra 85t earbuds is that both devices have different batteries.
Thus any of them can run out anytime while listening to music. Under such conditions, whichever headphone’s battery runs out will stop working.
2. The Volume Control is Stuck
The second reason why the Jabra 85t earphones stop working is that the volume control is stuck. If the volume control is stuck, then the volume cannot be adjusted. As a result, the volume of the headphones remains at its maximum level. This may happen due to several reasons. For example, if you accidentally press the volume button too many times, then the volume control might get stuck. In addition, if the volume control gets damaged, then the volume will remain permanently high.
3. There is a Short Circuit
The final reason why the Jabra elite 85t earbuds keep turning off and the audio signal stops working is a short circuit. A short circuit causes either one or more wires to become electrically connected together. Short circuits usually occur because two things touch each other unexpectedly. The most common cause of this problem is when you inadvertently push one wire inside another.
To solve this issue, check whether all the earbuds are plugged into their respective ports. Also, make sure that they are not touching anything else. If you feel that there is still something wrong and you do not hear any sound coming from the left or right ear of the Jabra Elite, then proceed to the next step. We would like to emphasize that this issue should not happen at all unless you do something really silly.
4. Disconnecting The Cable
If all the above-mentioned attempts fail, then disconnect the cable. It means you have tried everything possible to fix this issue. If you try all these steps and nothing works, then this issue must be resolved by discharging the battery and plugging all cables back again. This procedure needs to be done carefully so that no damage occurs.
How To Resolve Jabra Elite 85t Problem?
Now that we know why the Jabra Elite fails to play music despite being plugged in properly, let us now deal with the ways to resolve the issue. This section will address various possibilities to resolve this problem. Here we go:
Resolve With Charger
Charge your Jabra 85t to 100%. After charging for 20 minutes, connect your Jabra 85t headset again. Plug and unplug the headset from the USB port as per usual. Make sure that you charge the phone using a charger rather than an external battery pack. This option might work but only after charging your phone fully.
Solution 1: Resetting The Bluetooth Pairing Process
This method requires some technical knowledge and could prove to be effective. To use this technique, you need to reset the pairing process. Follow the instructions that I am about to give to you.
First of all, go to the Bluetooth settings on your device and remove the pair with the device. Once you are done with it, the next thing that you need to do is to turn off the Bluetooth on your phone and put the earbuds back into its case.
After that pull them out of their case and turn on Bluetooth on your phone. Scan for available devices and wait until you see the headphones. Your phone should detect the headphones automatically.
Now just open up the Bluetooth connection menu on your phone and tap on the blue eye icon beside the Jabra 85t’s name. Select “Turn On” from the list and wait for the process to complete. At last, reconnect with your headset once again using the same steps mentioned earlier.
Solution 2: Resetting The Device
You can also perform a hard reset on the Jabra Elite 85t headset. First, turn off the Jabra 85t and wait until the LED indicator lights up once. Then, hold down both the buttons simultaneously (Volume Down + Power) for 10 seconds.
When the LED turns green, release the buttons and the headset should start working again without any issues. But if you face problems after performing a hard reset, refer to Solution 3 for further help.
Reset Using Hard Reset Button
Next, press the power button while holding down Volume Down + Home buttons together. Wait for the handset to vibrate twice. Now release all three buttons. Release the power button only when the LED starts blinking yellowish. Then click the volume button to confirm that the shutdown was successful.
