how hear the files in a flash memory?

Asked by: mohammad mansouri
That USB port is used to charge mobile devices as the CHARGE 3 also acts as a power bank for mobile devices. Please keep in mind, it is ONLY used for charging and would not be able to read/recognize thumb drives or audio files from your mobile phone/device.

I have Charge 3 connected to power source to use with my Amazon Dot without powering off. It has worked for 2 weeks. Now all of a sudden I am getting a flashing white light on the power button. I pressed it and it was fine for a few hours but flashing now

Asked by: veggie59
The behavior of the power button on the JBL Charge 3 if its flashing white, it means that the speaker is on standby mode. Unit will go on standby mode if there is no audio signal detected within 10 - 15 minutes. With this being said, first 2 weeks that the speaker was working fine the volume on the DOT might be loud enough that the speaker senses a signal, and this prevents it from going into standby mode or auto on/off feature just to save battery power. Set the DOT's volume to 100% and control the desired volume on the JBL Charge 3.

How do I clean the red variant of black stains? Because this really makes the product ugly.

Asked by: Enriquevoss
Cleaning procedure would be, soak the speaker in water with little soap. Note: The fabric can stain from certain materials such as grease, paint or any other oily materials. We highly advise that you protect the speaker from those materials because it may cause damage to the speakers in the long run.

I want to connect the JBL charge 3 to my smart tv speakers. I bought a y adapter cable 3.5mm. male plug to 2 male rca plugs . I plugged the 2 RCA plugs into the audio plugs in the back of the tv but will not connect. Help please

Asked by: Bobbi
I’m sorry to hear that you are having issues with the JBL Charge 3. We need to check if the RCA plugs connected are output ports and we also need to check if speaker settings are set to external as it is normally defaulted to internal. If it still does not resolve issue, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you.

how to check if it's not fake product. is there any QR code. Thanks

Asked by: Thang
If CHARGE 3 has differences to what you see in our photos on our website especially if it has a micro SD port and green led light, it's a counterfeit product. To ensure you get genuine JBL products, please visit our authorized JBL stores or purchase product from our JBL web sites only.

My JBL Charge 3 can't connect with my cell phone Moto X Force. I checked it with Lenovo/Motorola and they tell me to verify with JBL. I certainly shure that you will speak that is a problem with my fone. Am I right?

Asked by: Mozartajr
To put the CHARGE 3 in pairing mode, simply press and hold the Bluetooth button for 2 seconds. The light should start flashing blue, indicating that the CHARGE 3 is ready to be paired. Turn your device’s Bluetooth on and you should now be able to connect to the CHARGE 3. If this doesn't help, please reset the speaker by pressing and holding the “Volume +” and the “Play/Pause” button at the same time while the CHARGE 3 is on. The device should switch off automatically, indicating the reset was successful.I noticed that you are in Brazil. If you are still having issues, please contact the store where you purchased the unit and they will be able to help.

I am thinking about purchasing the Charge 3. I know from the reviews that it plays music remarkable well. I listen to a lot of audio books on my Note 3 and want to know if the Bluetooth capability will play my audio books as well?

Asked by: DanAgain
The CHARGE 3 does not require any specific drivers. It utilizes the standard Bluetooth Stereo Audio drivers available in most laptops. There are two different Bluetooth protocols, one for Headset Audio used for talking on the telephone, and the other for high quality stereo audio listening. Being that the CHARGE 3 is a speaker, your computer, Mobile phone, Tablets must connect to the CHARGE 3 using the Stereo Audio protocol. Additionally, it seems that audio book is an application installed to your device, it should still work accordingly with the device installed.

Hi JBL personnel. I could not find a battery charging instruction to charge the JBL Charge 3 for the very first time. How long does it take to charge the JBL Charge 3 for the very first time out of the box?

Asked by: Jay Foo
The recharge time for the CHARGE 3 (from 0-100%) takes about 4.5 hours when plugging the included 5V / 2.3A charger into the wall outlet. Please note, charge time will significantly decrease when using higher amperage micro USB charger. We also have the quick start guide instructions located at our product webpage on our http://www.harmanaudio.com/jbl/JBL+CHARGE+III.html?dwvar_JBL%20CHARGE%20III_color=Black#start=1 for your reference.
