  1. Thank you for the review of the JBL Flip 3 users manual, I purchased a JBL Flip speaker years ago and only recently found the speaker and now am trying to charge the speaker. I only noted a large red circle flashing around the speaker perimeter. I plan to continue charging this speaker for 4 hours, then checking the red circle, hoping for either a green or blue?

    I would very much appreciate your comments or help finding a users manual.

  2. Change battery as I did today. Then download app and update. Works beautifully and I was having the same problems as you.

  3. Couple of issues I’m having that I’d like some help with.
    1. When I press pause on Spotify, it often disconnects Bluetooth and turns the JBL speaker off.. It doesn’t happen every time, and that’s the frustrating part.
    2. Is there a setting that I’m missing that automatically connects the speaker to my phone when I turn on the speaker? It is getting quite old having to re-connect the speaker every time #1 happens.

  4. I have jbl flip 4 speaker. I don’t use the speaker very often. Yesterday i put it on charge and fell asleep. When I woke up in the morning, it was showing fully charged. I played music for around 30 min in the evening after which I noticed a little red light blinking near the power button or the jbl connect button(I can’t remember exactly). I switched it off and back on again and it showed me that it had plenty of charge. But while playing music again, I noticed the red light again. Why is the red light coming on even though the speaker has more than 80% battery left?

  5. I bought this to hear Audible books on Kindle Oasis. I do not understand how to use it and the instructions do not make it clear to me. The error message on the Oasis says “pair a bluetooth audio device to listen” and I do not know what I’m doing wrong. Help! Thanks.

    1. I’m not great at pairing Bluetooth either. My only suggestion would be to go to You Tube to help guide you through the set-up since you can get a visual of it as well.

  6. I want my speaker to blue tooth to my TV but not to my hearing aid. How do I use on TV and not blue tooth to my hearing aid at the same time
