Galaxy Buds Plus - left earbud stopped working

JUMP TO SOLUTION

After a month of flawless work, left earbud suddenly became unresponsive. Buds were working fine, placed in the charging case after use, on the next use left bud did not come alive after being taken out of the case.

 

- The bud does not show up in the galaxy wear app - it is drawn, but no battery status is shown. Right bud and case appeared normally.

- The touch panel on the bud is not responsive - it is not making any sound and not eating to presses.

 

- When placed in the charging case, red changing LED shows up, and turns green after a while.

 

Following a suggestion on this forum, I have reset the buds (no change), then tried to remove and re-add the buds to the app. After removal, buds are no longer detectable by the Wear app or by the phones' Bluetooth.

 

A non-samsung phone was able to find the right bud and make music play out of it, but left bud is still not working.

 

Please advise on how to proceed.

if you bought them from Samsung, bestbuy or like in my case I ordered them on through verizon. I had to call Samsung customer service, you can either speak with them over messager or on call, messager was faster. I guess, if you had bought them, you have a 1 year warranty. I sent in mine yesterday and I'm assuming they got it cause I just recieved my tracking number for the replacement. no mailing fee, they handle everything. the only thing you need to do is take it to UPS.

Hello!

 

I can understand wanting to use both of your galaxy buds at once. I have some troubleshooting we can try to see if we can get the buds to connect properly.

First I would try to reset the buds, you can do so following these steps:


First, navigate to and open the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone.

For the Galaxy Buds or Buds+, tap About earbuds. Tap Reset earbuds, and then tap Reset to confirm.

 

If that does not help to get the buds to connect, give the next troubleshooting steps a try.

 

Go to Setting > Connections > Bluetooth and un-pair the buds from there

Next, go to the Wearable's app and un-pair the device

Then uninstall and reinstall the Wearable's app

Once reinstalled reconnect the buds while they are plugged up by the power cord that came with them in the box.

 

You can also tap and hold on the touchpads while in the cradle until the light flashes green.

 

Let me know if this helped!

 

After performing the troubleshooting if your buds are still experiencing the symptoms, could you please provide me with your model and serial number for your buds in a private message so I can assist you further. https://bit.ly/2SUXRar

Hello, I'm Damian a Samsung Expert and user as well.

I'm happy to assist you!

 

In this case your best option would be to contact samsung directly as their are no service center that will physically service the Ear buds onsite these items are usually shipped out with proof purchase or further inspection down below i have attached a link

For shipping repair, you need to call Samsung, the hotline is indicated in this link: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/contact/
