How to Pair or Connect JBL Flip 4

Quick Prep-up Before Connecting JBL Flip 4

1. Power On Speaker

Before you want to connect a device to your JBL Flip 4, make sure that it’s powered on. Find the power button which is located on the top panel of the speaker. Next, press and hold the button until you see all the LED lights on the front of the speaker flash.

2. Check Battery Levels

Make sure that both – the device you’re trying to pair your JBL Flip 4 with and the speaker itself have sufficient battery power to be able to initiate the pairing process. If your JBL Flip 4 LED indicator is flashing a red color, that indicates a low battery level. In this case, charge your speaker till the LED light indicator stops flashing red.

3. Remove Surrounding Interference

It’s ideal to attempt connecting in an area where there’s no heavy-set electronic devices such as a microwave oven, radio, WiFi router, etc. that can cause problems while pairing via Bluetooth. If you have such devices that emit electromagnetic radiation, move them to a different location to result in faster wireless connectivity later on.

Steps For Connecting JBL Flip 4

Start off with activating Bluetooth on your source device. Go to the settings menu on the device you wish to connect to the JBL Flip 4. This could be a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other Bluetooth-enabled gadget.

Now, click on the option that says “Find Available Nearby Devices”. Wait for a while and try to keep your device and the JBL speaker very close (the distance between them should not exceed 30 feet).

Once the name of your JBL speaker appears in the list of available Bluetooth devices, click on your speaker’s name, tap on ‘Connect’ to initiate the pairing process. Confirm your action and it should take less than a minute for your JBL Flip 4 to connect.
