Fix 3: Re-pair the Jabra Elite 75t Earbuds

  • First, open your device’s Bluetooth settings.
  • Then, hold the button on both earbuds for three seconds until you see the LED light flash blue. This indicates that they’re in pairing mode.
  • Now, look for ‘Jabra Elite Active 75t’ in your device’s Bluetooth list and select it.
  • Wait for a successful connection message.
  • If you don’t see the earbuds listed, try restarting your device and repeating the pairing process.

Fix 4: Try the earbuds on another device

To further troubleshoot your Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds, try them on a different device. This step will help you determine whether the issue is device-specific or not. Make sure the target device has a functioning Bluetooth connection.

  • Pair your earbuds with the new device by following the usual steps.
  • Play some audio to check if both earbuds are working correctly.
  • If the issue persists, it’s likely the earbuds, not your original device.

Remember, some issues could be due to outdated firmware. Be sure to keep your devices and earbuds updated.

Fix 5: Update the earbuds firmware

In dealing with your Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds issues, updating the firmware is a vital step you shouldn’t overlook. Old firmware might be the culprit causing your earbuds not to work optimally. Here’s how you do it:

  1. First, download the Jabra Sound+ app on your device.
  2. Connect your earbuds to the device and open the app.
  3. In the ‘Headset’ tab, if an update is available, you’ll see ‘Update now’.
  4. Tap it and follow the instructions.
  5. Don’t interrupt the process, as it might damage your earbuds.
  6. Once it’s done, disconnect and reconnect your earbuds to your device.

If your earbuds are still not functioning well, the issue mightn’t be the firmware, and it’s time to explore other solutions.

Fix 6: Battery issues: Low Battery issues

With your Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds, you might encounter issues related to low battery, which can cause the Jabra Elite Active 75t right or left earbud not working issue.

To troubleshoot low battery issues:

  • Make sure to charge your earbuds frequently. Running the battery completely down often can shorten its lifespan.
  • Use the charging case provided by Jabra. Third-party chargers may not provide the right voltage, causing damage over time.
  • Contact Jabra support if your earbuds frequently run out of battery too quickly. They might need to be replaced or repaired.
