How To Fix AirPods Flashing Orange

If you have a problem with your AirPods, you can easily reset it by putting it in the charging case and pressing and holding the settings button.

However, even if you put it in the charging case and try to reset the AirPods, there are cases where the status lamp does not blink orange or orange to white and cannot be reset.

This article will explain what to do when AirPods cannot be reset normally, even if you press the setting button.

AirPods light meaning

LED lights on the AirPods charging case indicate the status of the AirPods and AirPod casing. Each color produced by this LED lighting has a different meaning. Let’s take a look at each.

Inside the casing

  • Green: Indicates that the AirPod casing is fully charged
  • Solid Amber / Orange: Indicates that the AirPod case is not fully charged.
  • Blinking amber/orange —Indicates that your AirPods haven’t been successfully paired with your iPhone or other devices. (What we investigate)
  • Blinking white indicates that your AirPods are ready to set up on your iPhone or other devices.

Outside the casing

  • Green: This indicates one full AirPods charge left in the casing.
  • Solid amber/orange: Your AirPods will be fully charged less than once.

Now that you understand all the colors produced by the LED lights in your AirPods casing let’s dive in and see how to fix the flashing orange/amber lights. Let’s look at some methods. Try each of them, and don’t forget to share with us in the comments that worked for you.

Method 1: Press the button with the case lid open

Even if you press the setting button with the lid of the AirPods case closed, you cannot reset the AirPods.

To reset the AirPods, you need to press the “setting button” on the back of the case for at least 15 seconds with the case lid open. Therefore, if you have closed the case lid, try resetting your AirPods with the lid open.

If you can’t reset your AirPods by pressing the Settings button with the case lid open, try the next solution.

Method 2: Disconnect AirPods from iPhone

If the AirPods are connected to the iPhone via Bluetooth, the status light will not turn orange even if you press and hold the setting button, and you will not be able to reset the AirPods.

So, disconnect your AirPods from your iPhone and then try resetting them. To disconnect your AirPods from your iPhone, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the “Settings” app.
  2. Tap “Bluetooth“.
  3. In the list of your devices, tap the “i icon” of “Connected AirPods“.
  4. Tap “Forget This Device“.
  5. When the confirmation pop-up appears, tap “Forget This Device“.

With the above steps, you can disconnect your AirPods from your iPhone. If you can disconnect your AirPods, try resetting your AirPods as you normally would.

Method 3: Disconnect AirPods from all devices

In addition to iPhone, AirPods can be connected to devices such as iPad, Mac, Android, and Windows. If your AirPods are connected to other devices besides your iPhone, you can’t reset your AirPods as well.

Therefore, if you have AirPods connected to multiple devices, you can reset them normally by disconnecting from all the devices.

Follow the steps below to disconnect your AirPods on devices other than your iPhone.

For iPad :

You can disconnect using the same procedure as for iPhone. For detailed steps, please refer to Method 2: Disconnect AirPods from iPhone.

It is possible that your AirPods may not reset properly due to the low battery level of your AirPods.

Therefore, fully charge your AirPods before trying to reset your AirPods.
