How To Fix Donerton Wireless Earbuds Charging Issue?

If your Donerton Earbuds are not charging in the case, then try the following solutions-

1. Remove and Insert Again

The first thing you need to do is- remove both the earbuds and place them again in the charging case.

I’m suggesting this because we often carelessly place the earbuds after removing them from the ear, and they won’t properly connect with the charging pins.

2. Clean the Charging Case

All wireless earbuds have a magnetic case that keeps the earbuds attached to the charging pins.

Over time, the charging case attracts dust and moisture from the environment and covers the charging pins.

This dirt layer acts as an insulator of electricity and stops earbuds from charging.

So, remove both earbuds from the case and clean the charging case and the earbuds with isopropyl alcohol and soft fabric.

After a thorough cleaning, insert the charging cable into the case, place both earbuds, and leave for 30 minutes.

3. Fully Charge the Case

Have you charged your case recently? If not, first fully charge the case for at least 3 hours.

What if the charging case battery is dead? For sure, it won’t charge your earbuds.

Put both earbuds in the charging case, plugin it into the charger, and leave for 3 hours. Once the case’s battery level increases, it’ll also charge your earbuds.

4. Reset Earbuds

Resetting earbuds can fix many software related issue. If you ave cleaned your charging case and buds, the last solution is to reset the earbuds.
