  1. Help please. I have paired my new jbl go2 with my samsung phone and tablet. I can listen to music from my tablet. But I can’t get anything from my phone. Can both be connected at the same time?What do I need to do?

    1. My JBL GO 2 problem
      While night time fully charged but morning we don’t use the speaker .
      Buttons no working .
      Only LED light on in red color

      What we do??

      1. Hello, the same thing happens to me, red light on and nothing works, I can’t turn it off or reset it either.

        Hola, a mi mesucede lo mismo, luz roja encendida y nada funciona, tampoco lo puedo apagar ni resetear.

      2. The red LED is constantly lit and the buttons do not respond to anything.
        Folyamatosan világít a piros LED, és a gombok semmire se reagálnak.

    2. No. I had same problem and the Argos Product Support line helped a lot. I had to stop all my devices recognising the Go2 then ask for one to recognise it again.. . Even just switching off the bluetooth on the device did not allow it to work with another device.

  2. Hello, I’ve just bought the very good JBL GO 2. It’s great but….
    Why can’t I play it while it’s charging, it just switches off when I try to play music in the charge mode

  3. I am replacing my BROKEN laptop speakers with a JBL GO2.
    Is there a way to KEEP the GO2 on all the time without having it turn off automatically. I keep the power cord plugged in at all times.

    Thank you.

  4. I ‘ve got two Go2’s can I pair them up to each other for more Sound ala stereo??? If so what cable do I need . Thanks

  5. After I charged my JBL Go2 Speaker and disconnected it from the powersource, the LED is still red (permanently). The Box is not reacting to any pressed buttons. Even after several hours after disconnecting from the charger the LED is red, as of it would still charge.

    1. Press and hold the power button until the red light goes off, about 20 seconds. The best way to find answers is to enter the device name and add troubleshooting to your search.

  6. I don’t know what happened but my JBL go only connects to my cell phone to my partner’s, it no longer connects to the computer when it did before. of rependen the compus of my house no longer detect it! I have two notebooks and both have bluetooth but for some reason they do not detect the device. what can be done?
    No se que pasó pero mi JBL go solo se conecte a mi celular al de mi pareja, ya no se conecta a la compu cuando antes si lo hacia. de rependen las compus de mi casa ya no lo detectan! tengo dos notebooks y ambas tienen bluetooth pero x alguna razon no lo detectan al aparato. q se puede hacer?

  7. “After I charged my JBL Go2 Speaker and disconnected it from the powersource, the LED is still red (permanently). The Box is not reacting to any pressed buttons. Even after several hours after disconnecting from the charger the LED is red, as of it would still charge.”
    Exactly the same happened to me, right after the first charging, and the box has been “dead” for almost 24h now. Was that it? If yes… What a miserable quality!

    1. Hold it down until it finally turns off, it worked for me.
      Mantenlo presionado hasta que por fin se apague, a mi me resulto.

  8. How do you actually use it? The instructions don’t tell you at all. I have guessed you have to charge it but then what?

  9. Hello,
    same question as Max, how to suppress too loud on and off sounds?

    même question que Max, comment supprimer les sons d’activation et de désactivation beaucoup trop bruyants ?

  10. My jbl go 2 speaker, when not plugged in, still shows the light is charging. So what is that error?
    Thank you.

    Loa jbl go 2 của em khi không cắm sạc nó vẫn hiện đèn báo là đang sạc. Vậy đó là lỗi gì vậy ạ
    Em cảm ơn.

  11. I wonder why I do not find an answer anywhere. Many questions about the expected red light and what happens when it does not light up, but the answer is nowhere to be found

    Απορω γιατι δεν βρισκω απάντηση πουθενα. Πολλα ερωτηματα για το αναμενο κοκκινο λαμπακι και τι γινεται που δεν αναβει, αλλα η απαντηση δεν υπαρχει πουθενα

  12. So I purchased this GO2 speaker yesterday. Not impressed with the packaging as in: the sheets of paper info rolled up and stuffed into a small box, which have to be flattened out. Then there are NO instructions on how to set this thing up. Not even info saying you can download a manual. Why should I have to do that? Instructions should be included. So can you send me a copy of the instructions.

  13. I have connected for two hours. No red charging light appears. It does not turn on.

    Tengo conectado hace dos horas. No aparece luz roja de carga. No se enciende.

  14. it is impossible for me to connect the jbl go2 speaker to my computer which is under windoos 10, if on tours 37 there is someone who has the solution thank you

    il m’est impossible de connecter l’enceinte jbl go2 a mon ordi qui est sous windoos 10, si sur tours 37 il y a une personne qui a la solution merci

  15. Hi guys,

    I seem to have some problem with JBL go2.
    Got it brand new and it only works while it’s connected to the charger.
    There is only white LED color, no blue, no red colors.
    As soon as I disconnect it from the charger it turns off.
    Any solutions for this ?
