Fix JBL TUNE 120TWS Not Charging Issue

After discussing the charging-related errors, I want to tell you how to fix them. Below are different methods that can help resolve your JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds not charging issue. Please read and implement these methods carefully:

Pull Out The Connectors in The case

When you look inside your JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds charging case, you will see three connectors. These connectors connect with your earbuds and start the charging process. 

Sometimes, when you place your earbuds in the charging case, the connectors can get stuck, preventing proper up and down movement. This can cause the connection between the case connectors and the earbud connectors to fail, and as a result, your JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds do not charge.

I suggest taking a pin and gently lifting the connectors inside the charging case upwards. Once they are lifted, move them up and down 2 to 3 times to ensure they are moving freely and can establish a stable connection. 

When you feel that the connectors are correctly aligned and moving properly, place the earbuds back in the charging case and start charging them. Hopefully, this will resolve JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds not charging issue and your earbuds will begin to charge.

Clean The Connectors

Sometimes, the connecting points on your earbuds and the connectors in the charging case get dirty due to earwax or dust. This dirt can prevent a proper connection, stopping the JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds from charging. 

Clean them effectively by taking a cloth and thoroughly cleaning the connectors and earbuds. 

Then, take a cotton swab and dip it in alcohol. 

Use the alcohol-dipped cotton swab to clean the connectors and the earbuds thoroughly. 

After cleaning with alcohol, take a cloth and dry the connectors and earbuds. 

Try charging your earbuds again. Hopefully, they will start charging now.

Reset Your Buds

One way to fix charging-related errors is by resetting your earbuds. Resetting them can resolve unknown issues that may be causing the error, restoring your earbuds to their default settings and allowing them to be charged again. 

There are various methods to clean your earbuds; you can read about them in detail in our article on how to reset JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds.

Charge Without Buds

If you’re facing issues where your earbuds are not charging, I suggest the following steps:

Firstly, charge your empty case separately from the earbuds. 

Remove the earbuds from the charging case.

Begin by charging only the case for about 15 to 20 minutes.

After that, place your earbuds back into the charging case.

By following these steps, your JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds should start charging properly

Fix JBL TUNE 120TWS Case Not Charging Issue

As I mentioned earlier, users also face an error where their earbud case does not charge. Here’s what you can do to fix this issue:

Firstly, try charging your ear case without the earbuds connected. If the case starts charging, congratulations! If not, proceed to the next step.

Try changing your charging cable. The cable you are using might be faulty, which could be causing the case not to charge. Replace it with a new cable and attempt to charge the case again.

If changing the cable doesn’t work, inspect and repair the charging port of your ear case. There might be some sort of error or damage causing the case not to charge. Once you fix the charging port, try charging the case again.

By following these steps, you should be able to resolve the issue of your earbud case not charging.

Replace Charging Case

If you have followed all the given steps and your ear case still isn’t charging, I suggest considering replacing your charging case. You don’t necessarily need to buy a new earbud or a new charging case; you can find replacement charging cases online through various stores. 

Use Google search or social media to look for information from friends or stores around you. There might be someone who has the necessary information or can provide you with a compatible charging case for your earbuds. 

A new case could solve the problem if your old case is completely damaged or unable to charge. Once you have the new case, your case should start charging, and then you can proceed to charge your JBL TUNE 120 TWS earbuds.
