Skullcandy Wireless Headphones Troubleshooting

If you’re still encountering problems while attempting to pair your Skullcandy Bluetooth headphones to your device, give these troubleshooting tips a try.

  1. Check that Bluetooth is turned on by looking for the Bluetooth symbol at the top of your device’s screen. If it’s not on, turn it on in the settings menu.
  2. Ensure that the two devices are close to each other. For the best results, keep the devices within five feet of each other.
  3. Try restarting both devices. Sometimes a soft reset can fix the problem. You can also turn airplane mode on and off to reset your device’s connectivity.
  4. Turn off any devices that may interfere with the pairing process. Other Bluetooth devices may be trying to connect to your headphones or earbuds, so turn off any previously paired devices.
  5. Make sure both devices are charged. Low battery levels can cause some devices to switch off Bluetooth to conserve power. If your mobile device won’t pair, ensure that the device you’re trying to connect to has enough battery life.
  6. Delete the device from your mobile device’s list of Bluetooth devices and try rediscovering it. If your phone or tablet detects the device but cannot receive data from it, restarting the pairing process may be necessary.
  7. Move away from other devices. Interference from other nearby devices can also prevent successful pairing, so try moving away from them.
  8. Keep some distance from USB ports. USB interference can be a problem, so if the connection isn’t working, try pairing your Bluetooth devices away from your computer’s USB ports.
