If the button is difficult to press or produces unusual clicking or scratching noises, the problem comes from the button.

In that case, you’ll need to verify that nothing is obstructing the button, and if needed, perform some cleaning using a toothpick.

So, if the Singing Machine doesn’t seem to be receiving power or turning on after installing your adapter, there could be an underlying charging fault.

  • The Singing Machine uses a standard 5.5 mm*2.5 mm cord with a 10 W – 50 W power adapter, which you can easily replace and test.

Let’s review several methods for resolving the charging issues of the Singing Machine:

  • Ensure all cable connections of the charger are secured.
  • Inspect the charging port and remove any obstructions.
  • Install the Singing Machine’s charger in a different outlet.
  • Attempt to charge the speaker with a replacement cable.

Well, all Singing Machine models have a built-in LED charging indicator that illuminates once a charger is connected to the A/C port.

If the lamp flickers and goes off or does not illuminate at all, the fault can be with the internal battery of the Singing Machine or the charging equipment.

Note: If your Singing Machine is not charging and not turning on, deliver the device for repairs!

Quick Recap

So, if the Singing Machine not turning on, try to jump-start the device, inspect for any Power button for faults, and refill the internal battery to maximum capacity.

If the fault persists, reset the speaker’s settings and address issues related to the charging.
