Fix: Anker Soundcore Mini Not Charging

How to fix Anker Soundcore Mini not turning on?

Your Anker Soundcore Mini might be out of battery, or there could be a glitch in the settings, or it could be a hardware issue. There are many possibilities with the device not turning on, but unless it’s a hardware issue, it can be fixed by trying out simple solutions. Now let’s take a look at them.

Check the battery status:

The Soundcore Mini does not have any LED lights feature built-in that would inform the user about its battery status. But if you have a device with Bluetooth 4.1 or above, the speaker’s battery will show up in the top right corner, next to the phone’s battery bar percentage. So if the last time you used the speaker showed a percentage with a deficient number, the battery on your speaker is drained. In that case, you need to charge it properly to turn it on again.

If the device is not turning on since you bought it, and you can’t check the battery percentage, move on to the next solution.

In some rare scenarios, the USB cable that came with the speaker could also be at fault. So try out other cable and adapter combinations as well.

Try the next solution if your Bluetooth speaker is charging properly but not turning on.

Reset the Bluetooth speaker:
