Dude... I am saying this seems like a pretty bad issue to have so wide spread. I love my buds but with only one working it is useless and a colossal waste of money. Please put out a fix Samsung!
My right ear bud is not working, i've charged the case but I get a red exclamation mark on the wearables app. I have unpaired and repaired the devices but nothing.
I have had the buds for about 9 months now and use them off and on. No issues until just a few minutes ago. I went to use them and only the left bud is working. Right bud is dead. I unpaired it from my PC and tried to pair again and while successfully paired there was no change in right bud behavior (still dead). I then uninstalled the Galaxy Wearable app from my phone (Samsung Note 10+5G), reinstalled the app, and attempted to reconnect the buds but no change. I also tried to reset the earbuds and reinitialize them in the app but no change. I also tried to do a manual software update but this failed because both ear buds are not connected, i.e. right ear bud is offline.
Based on some research here and on the web it looks like these might be bricked due to a faulty software update requiring replacement from Samsung. See attached pic of what the main screen looks like in Galaxy Wearable app. Samsung support, please assist and let me know if you need any additional information, thanks!
Device Name: Galaxy Buds (3CE4)
Software Version: R170XXU0ATF2
Received the galaxy buds for Christmas. Used with no issues until a month ago when I noticed the L one was completely dead. Charged it up but light never turned from red to yellow or green - just stayed constantly red. Put it in my ear, no sound, no connection. No issues with the R bud - working fine. Searched all the forums, watched a ton of very unhelpful videos, tried every fix-it solution out there and even borrowed a Samsung phone to try and view them in the Wearables app which just showed me what I already knew: L side with a red exclamation point, can't update and can't reset via the app. I'm interested now in exchanging them if possible. Please help.
