How To Fix Common AirPod Problems!

by birtanpublished on January 10, 2021

Welcome back everyone i always make these type of videos on my third channel and my second channel but i don't really drop them on my main one so i figured i might as well talk about some of the more common you know airpod problems that i've seen in my life and pretty much how to fix them now this is not going to be a full in-depth crazy tutorial but i try my best basically the most popular videos i've done on my second channel for airpods i'll go ahead and kind of go ahead and try to describe them and hopefully i'll leave like some metal

Links or some you know timestamps in the description so you can go and skip to those specific issues that you're having and go and kind of fix it from there and it'll pretty much narrow it down so the very first problem that i've seen a ton of people run into all the time that i've experienced every single day almost every single time i use airpods it's only one side working so what this basically means that if you take your airpod out and you go ahead and put it in your ear and you go ahead and you know actually take out

The other one don't put it back in but you take out the other one put it in here as well basically sometimes these air pods will actually end up not syncing up properly and only one of them will be working where the other one is still outputting at the same volume nothing changed and pretty much every single time this has ever happened the best way that i've seen this work time and time again is to actually go ahead and take your airpods out of your ears put them back in your case

Shut it off and just let it wait for like five seconds typically what happens here is that your phone will go ahead and disconnect with your air pods and you can go ahead and then open these bad boys back up put them back in the air and you will probably see that they've synced back up and they will end up working there now some other ways that i've seen this you know tampered with in some ways i've seen this actually mess up even more is that if you have a bunch of ear wax

Or dirt and stuff built into your air pods so when you get your air pods they're brand new they typically work but if it's not a software issue then typically you have a lot of crust in your airpods you have crusty airports as i used to say and you probably have to go ahead and clean those things off before you go ahead and continue onward i've seen this time and time again and that is typically what i've seen and what i've seen people you know and you know my airpods back in the day

We're like that now they're clean i promise so that's the very first thing or that's the second thing i would recommend if only one side of your airpods work is to clean them out thoroughly and then go ahead and reconnect them back and they should end up working if it still doesn't work and disconnect your airpods from your iphones and or androids and reconnect from there so that's the first issue that i've seen a lot of people run into and that's typically what i would do in that case

Now let's say the next issue is you know your airpods microphone isn't working now this can happen you know if you're trying to take phone calls or facetime calls or something and for some reason the microphone isn't working now in case you guys don't know the microphone is actually built into the bottom of your airpods right here so if you look right here basically you'll see that at the bottom you have this little whole thing silver thing whatever this is typically where the

Microphone is i've also heard that sometimes it's like other places like right here and stuff but usually this is where the main microphone is now if you're on your airpods and you know for some reason they are connected and your microphone isn't working now this could be two things one maybe it's your airpod problem or maybe it's your phone problem now in this case let's say if it's your ipod problem now let's say the microphone is supposed

To be fully working but it's just now working in this case now what this basically means is that your airpods are faulty and they do in front and they don't function properly but if they do and you know they do for 100 facts then it might mean that you have a lot of you know debris and earwax and whatever dirt built up in this specific microphone hole so i would recommend taking a q-tip out clean it out thoroughly here you know put them back in the air and they should

End up fixing themselves and they should end up working on both sets of airpods if that doesn't end up working then obviously go into your phone and you want to go ahead and basically allow the microphone settings within your settings app for each individual app sometimes you may have not even allowed the microphone in those apps such as snapchat instagram so on and so forth so you want to go ahead and allow the microphone in those specific apps and that should end up working with your airpods at that point now the next thing

Is basically how to fix your airpods if they're not charging or if they're not functioning properly in aka charging now this can happen for a couple of different reasons now let's make our way down to this bottom hole typically as you guys know on the bottom of these machines we have the lightning ports right here what this allows us to do is plug in our charger right here and it'll end up functioning and working properly however sometimes there can be like i said before the breeze stuff just randomly built in

And kicked up in there and you typically what happens here is that over time not within one day but over time this can actually build up and cause even more issues and eventually cause these specific chargers to not even be able to charge our airpods now this is a huge issue because obviously you'll not be able to charge it so what i would recommend doing here is getting some sort of q-tip or getting some sort of you know cleaning material cotton swab anything that can fit in

There i've heard toothpicks before too and kind of you know scrape in there very very lightly you don't want to mess up anything and just kind of get something in there and then pry it out do not use anything metal do not use like a you know sim card eject tool or anything like that use like a toothpick or some type of plastic you know prying tool in there and scrape out anything that's in there eventually you'll see that you'll have a bunch of cotton and random stuff built in there so

That's the very first thing i recommend doing in that case then i would go ahead and recommend you know turning on your airpods again and seeing if they function i guarantee you in this case they'll end up charging typically if you see that orange light here that means they're charged if there's if it's green typically it's you know fully charged so that's the very first thing i would recommend doing if they're still not charging now if it's the actual airpods that that aren't charging in the case

Then what or then what i would recommend doing here is taking out your airpods and making sure everything is cleaned out within your airpods you know taking that same toothpicks taking that same cotton swab and cleaning out everything from within here and then taking the cotton swab and then fully prying it in there and pulling out anything you can't typically they should be clean there should be a bunch of earwax in there or anything like that and if it's set and if it's clean i'd

Recommend taking your airpods cleaning out the microphones at the bottom again one more time and plugging them straight in typically this should end up fixing those specific issues so your airpods case should end up charging with a specific thing but your airpods themselves should also end up charging in this specific situation as well now let's say everything is working out so far but this last issue is one that keeps plaguing you and that is your airpods that just keep disconnecting no matter what you do

They just keep disconnecting over and over again now what i'll ask you is which specific device are you connecting your airpods to are you connecting them to an android device are you connecting them to an iphone or an ipad or android basically now if you're connecting them to an android device it's typical that these airpods disconnect i've had androids i've connected a ton of airpods to them and realistically every time you go ahead and put them in your ear they don't automatically connect aka they

Disconnect from your device every single time you put them in the case now this is very annoying and i don't like it so if you're using an android you will have to reconnect every time i don't know if there's been software improvements to fix that so far but last time i used it which was like two months ago that's typically what happens now let's say it's your iphone that keeps disconnecting from your airpods now this typically means from what i've seen that your airpods are just sometimes calibrated with multiple

Different devices so sometimes i'll have it connected to my imac and my iphone and if that ends up being the case especially with these new versions of software the big sur you know mac os bixer and ios 14 they have this new airpod handoff feature so if you're going from an imac or an iphone or whatever it'll go ahead and switch from one device to the other so you can go and go into your settings for both devices you know if you're using a macbook an ipad or iphone and i recommend turning that specific feature off the airpod

Handoff feature so it doesn't automatically switch from one device and you know to the other now if that ends up working and you don't even have it installed or you're not even on this version of software then typically it is another software issue luckily it's not a hardware issue for airpods probably and that means that your airpods may not even be fully charged i've seen this time and time again especially with me sometimes i think my airpods are charging and everything but for some reason the case is charged

But the airpods aren't and you can go ahead and you know put your iphone next to your case or your iphone 12 or whatever next to the airpods case and i'll show you how much those are charged and typically at the end of the day those will go ahead and tell you you know your airpods you know case is at 100 but your airpods are only at two percent and they'll just keep disconnecting until they're fully charged so you want to wait until your airpods are fully charged and then go ahead and

Retry to go ahead and connect to them and you know hopefully they'll end up working now if that doesn't end up working what i recommend doing is totally resetting your airpods so put your airpods back in their case hold down this button back here until this front light turns white and once it begins flashing white you can go ahead and take your iphone or whatever and go ahead and wirelessly connect your airpods to the iphone and that should end up fixing the situation if it still doesn't end up

Fixing then again like i said reboot your phone turn off your bluetooth turn it back on and try reconnecting your airpods there and that should probably end up fixing those issues so those are really the most common airpods issues that i've seen in ways that i kind of went and dealt with them these are things that i've experienced and from reading online this is typically what ends up fixing them so if you guys have any other questions or anything let me know in the comment
