When Should You Reset Your Bluetooth Headphones?
When you reset your Bluetooth headphones, you are reverting them to factory settings, thus eliminating any bugs or glitches that might be causing your problems.
Resetting your Bluetooth headphones is helpful if:
- Your Bluetooth headset won’t connect to your smartphone or laptop
- The Bluetooth headphones won’t charge
- Your smartphone can’t find your Bluetooth headphones
- Your device can find the headphones, but the two won’t pair successfully
- Your headphones keep disconnecting from your device, even though they’re both fully charged
- You’re watching a video and the audio is delayed
- The sound is full of static or audio stutters
- You can connect your Bluetooth headphones, but there is no sound coming out, even when the headphones are set as the Default Playback device.
Aside from fixing your connectivity issues and software glitches, resetting will also get rid of any user-imposed settings that could be messing up your audio.
However, resetting your headphones will not fix any damage your headphones may have endured. If your headphones are glitching because of wear and tear on the electronics or because of water damage, then a reset will not help.

My charger started flashing because it got damp i put it to dry left it for a day and not had any more problems with it. ages ago (permalink)
Blinking charger light can mean:
1) Battery temperature is very high or low. charging can take forever or may even remain incomplete
2) Damaged or dirty terminals inside the charger. most commonly damp or dust. dry out slowly if damp. gently clean with a dry cloth if dusty
3) Battery compatibility issue. cheap copies do this sometimes. Originally posted ages ago. (permalink) knowledgeable whistle edited this topic ages ago.

Good morning, My sonicare wasn’t charging. The light flashed a few times but and then stopped illuminating. Just replaced the battery and still no light. Any ideas? I’m in the UK. Do you do a repair service if I can’t find the problem? Cheers Simon
It sounds like there could be internal water damage to the circuitry on the PCB. What is the HX number marked on the bottom of your toothbrush handle?
This is a toothbrush and will be placed very close to water and contact with water, so water damage would be least to worry about, the manufacture should be seriously do something to solved this problem.
The brushes do have rubber seals at both ends but over time these can harden and split. Always store your brush on its side with the head removed when not in use so water cannot seep down past the seal.
