The most practical solution to non-lasting issues with the Onn Party Speaker is to perform a “soft” reset using the built-in “Power” button.

It’s an effective method to relaunch all system services and forget the existing Bluetooth connections of the Onn speaker, fixing most issues.

Here’s how to perform a “soft” reset on the Onn Party Speaker easily:

  1. Verify the speaker is turned on and connected.
  2. Connect the charging cable to the Onn speaker.
  3. Next, hold the “Power” button on the top panel.
  4. Release the speaker’s button after 10 seconds.
  5. Wait 30 seconds while the Onn is powered off.
  6. Press the power button again, to restart the unit.

The “Power” button is in an identical position on both the “Medium” and “Large” versions of the Onn Party Speaker, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding it. 

In case your model does not have a built-in power button, you can achieve an identical reset by manually unpairing the speaker.

Note: You can unpair the Onn speaker manually through your device’s wireless settings!

2. Re-seat Onn’s Charging Adapter

An unsecured connection of Onn’s charging cable on either end will prevent the electricity from accessing the speaker’s hardware.

That’s why the most straightforward solution is to reseat the cable on both ends and determine if the LED status of the speaker will change to “Charging.”

Here’s how to reseat the Onn speaker’s charging cord in easy steps:

  1. Unplug the adapter from the party speaker’s A/C port.
  2. Disconnect the other end of the cable from the power.
  3. Wait for 45 seconds and reseat the wire on both ends.
  • Ensure the adapter is securely plugged into the speaker.
  • Check if the cable’s outlet connection is loose/unsecured.

What Adapter Do Onn Party Speakers Use?

Onn Large and Medium speakers both use a 2-prong AC power cord with male-to-female connectors.

The input current of the adapter does not exceed 2 amps and the plug format is type A.

So if you need a replacement in the future, verify to order the correct power adapter.

3. Alter the Speaker’s Charging Source

The next step is to install the charging adapter of the Onn Party Speaker into an alternative power source that can deliver electricity effectively.

An electrical outlet that’s deteriorated or depleted may lead to charging problems with both, the Onn Large or Medium Party Speaker.

First, identify alternative power sources that can be used instead of the current one and move the speaker along with the necessary equipment.

So, after the new cable is installed, check the indications of the speaker’s LED lamp and determine if the status has changed to “Charging.”

Tip: Before relocating the speaker, ensure the outlet is in a functional state through testing!

4. Check Onn’s Port for Obstructions

Well, if your Onn Large Party Speaker not charging, the issue may be a result of an obstructed speaker charging port or issues with the insertion.

As a result, the LED light of the speaker may remain the same, even after installing the charging cable securely into the port and socket.

You can quickly rule out an obstruction of the charging port by using a smartphone’s flashlight and inspecting the metallic pins in the connector.

  • Any dust or debris on the surface of the pins will prevent the adapter’s 2-prong end from plugging in securely.

How to Clean Onn Speaker Charging Port?

You can effectively remove all the debris within the speaker’s port by applying some cleaning solution to an ear stick and inserting it into the port.

So, use rubbing alcohol or a toothpick to soften and scrub the debris inside out.

Warning: Be gentle and do not apply too much force while cleaning the charging port’s pins!

5. Wait Until Onn Stops Overheating

Charging the Onn Party Speaker for a prolonged amount of time can result in elevation of the internal hardware’s temperature or other words–overheating. 

The longer the speaker’s hardware overheats, the more likely it is for Onn to stop charging or develop other, severe issues such as hardware defects.

How to Tell if the Onn Speaker is Overheating?

If the plastic feels hot to the touch, the speaker is most likely overheating or the internal components’ temperature is elevated.
