Unable to connect Bluetooth device

Follow the instructions for your Bluetooth device to ensure that Bluetooth is turned on. Test the device with another Bluetooth speaker to ensure it is functioning properly.

Unpaired Bluetooth device

If your Air Raid is unable to play music from your Bluetooth device, devices are not connected. Ensure the Air Raid is powered on. Press and hold the center button for five seconds. The Air Raid will enter pairing mode, and the LED will flash red and blue. When the device is successfully paired, the LED will blink red three times.

Bluetooth device disconnected

If the LED light on the front of your device is no longer flashing blue, your Bluetooth device has become disconnected. Press the center button briefly. The Air Raid will automatically connect to a paired device in range.

Devices out of range

The Air Raid supports a maximum range of 33ft from the connected Bluetooth device; ensure that the Bluetooth device is not too far away from the Air Raid.

Wrong device connected

If the Air Raid is connecting to the wrong Bluetooth device, clear its pairing list. Press and hold the plus and center buttons for 3 seconds while the device is powered on. This will clear all pairings from the Air Raid. Pair and connect your Bluetooth device again.

Air Raid will not pair or connect to a Bluetooth device

If the Air Raid will not pair or connect to a Bluetooth device after attempting all of the above steps, the device is likely malfunctioning. Your next step will be to replace the motherboard, essentially the heart of the device. Refer to replacement guide.

Device will not charge

You have plugged in your speakers and they won’t charge, or the battery life doesn’t last as long as it once did.

Playing at max volume

When you play music at maximum volume, the Air Raid will be depleting the charge on the battery faster than the battery is being charged. Turn the volume down or off in order to charge.

Loose charging connection

Check the connection between the device and the charger, and the charger and the wall. There should be no metal showing between the device and the charger, and the charger connection to the wall should not wiggle.

Charging from a computer

A computer USB port may not provide enough power to charge the device. Use the recommended charger with a wall receptacle.

Using wrong charger

Any charger that was not sold with the Air Raid can provide the wrong voltage or current. This can cause the battery to not charge and eventually degrade battery performance. Use the recommended charger.

Unpowered wall receptacle

Change where the charger plugs into the wall. Sometimes receptacles lose power or must be turned on with a light switch.

Bad battery

If you have left the Air Raid charging for a long time, but the battery dies quickly after unplugging it, you may need to replace the battery.

Bad USB port

If your device only charges when the plug is held at a certain angle, will not plug in all the way, or has visibly bent/broken pieces inside the charging port, you should replace the USB port.

Button inputs are unresponsive

Pressing the buttons on the device has no effect.

Disconnected Bluetooth

If you cannot change songs or “un-pause” using front buttons, your Bluetooth device may have become disconnected. To connect the Air Raid to a Bluetooth device, press the center button. Ensure that the other audio device’s Bluetooth is on. The LED on the speakers should flash blue once every 5 seconds as long as the Air Raid is connected.

Debris behind buttons

Sometimes dirt or debris can get underneath buttons and keep them from being pushed all the way down. You may notice that one side of the button moves more when pushed, or the button will not move at all. Use a keyboard vacuum or a can of compressed air to clean the small spaces around the buttons located on the Air Raid. You may also need to take the device apart to clean under the buttons.

Defective buttons

There may be damaged buttons, and it is possible that they need to be replaced. If all other efforts did not fix the button responsiveness, refer to the replacement guide to see how this problem could be fixed.

Sound is distorted

The volume is too high or too low, the speakers are snapping, crackling or popping, or there is no sound at all.

Low battery

If the Air Raid is low on battery, the sound may have a low volume or be distorted. The Air Raid must be plugged into a power source with its adapter. Be sure the outlet you are using is working.

Multiple connected devices

When multipoint (multiple device) is enabled, the Bluetooth chip will search for a 2nd paired device while still streaming music from the currently connected device. This causes a short section of choppy audio immediately after connection. It should resolve and play normally after approximately 30 seconds. Also, the following will resolve the issue immediately:

Soft Reset: Hold Volume + and the center button for 5 seconds to reset the paired device list and then pair again.

Remove Air Raid from Device: Go in to pairing settings on the device and remove or ‘forget’ Air Raid and then pair again.

Damaged speakers

If the above solutions did not solve the problem, the speakers may be damaged or broken. In this case they need to be replaced.

What if it is flashing red and its been charging all night?

jessydiaz87 - Contestar

same problem here

Terrance Snyder -

The only time my Air Raid flashes red is when I am playing music through the auxilary connection with my non bluetooth device. Check the number of green lights on the Air Raid to see if it is fully charged. When the Air Raid is plugged in for charging, is the green light blinking or not? If not, it's fully charged. If it's still dead and won't come on contact Skullcandy warranty department.

TJ Strong -

I've gone through 3 sets of wireless ear buds do to the battery over heating while charging and end up melting where he indicator light is. The package nor instructions day anywhere on there as to what change you should use. Anyone else having this issue? The last time I was using a charging block that was 5v 1amp pretty standard for alot of devices. What the f*** is going on this is beyond frustrating and expensive. Last pair I bought I got one use out of them and cost me $67 out the best buy kiosk in a Hawaii airport.

Skull candy Bluetooth Head Phones. Problem: Blue tooth / WiFi connect interference.

After trying to trouble shot the problem I can only come up is one problem. The Bluetooth Head seems to interfering with my WiFi when connected to my PC. When streaming (u tube) video the Head Phones Bluetooth does something to the WiFi and freezes the video / WiFi?

When I turn off the Blue tooth Head Phones the video will automatically start again. WiFi & Blue tooth I heard have the same band width a Open frequency.

Anyone else having issue like this with their Skull candy Bluetooth Head Phones?

So I tried soft resetting my Skull Candy headphones (Hold + and center button for 5 seconds), but it’s still connected to a unknown device. This makes me extremely frustrated adding the fact that I don’t even have the wire from the headphones since I lost it. Can anyone help me. Never mind! My sister was playing a prank on me the whole time. Though the soft reset doesn’t work.
