Samsung Galaxy Buds Left Or Right Bud Disconnection Issue Fix

Samsung Galaxy Buds disconnection

I recently got a pair of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus and interestingly the left bud was not working for me out of the box. I contacted customer support and they could not figure out what the issue was as the pair was brand new. This is a known issue that happens when people do not take care of the Samsung Galaxy Buds and they get dirty but mine were brand new so that should not have been an issue. I resolved the Samsung Galaxy Buds left bud disconnection issue and I thought I would share my findings with you.

How To Fix Samsung Galaxy Buds Left Or Right Bud Disconnection

I checked out the Samsung Galaxy Buds Reddit and posted my issue. Other people shared their experience and I tried everything including the following:

  • Putting them in my ear and tapping the buds.
  • Holding the touchpads while the buds were in the case
  • Opening and closing the buds again and again in different ways.

But nothing worked for me. I finally discovered the trick. My left bud had been discharged for a while and had gone dead. The simple fix was that there is a small button on the inner side of the bud under the left and right indicators. Pressing the button resets the buds. After doing that, I was able to connect the left bud with the case and the right one along with my phone.

Previously, the app on my phone was not picking up the left bud and it was not charging either. After the reset, it was able to charge and it was showing up on the Galaxy Wearables up on my Note 10+. I thought I would share the fix so that other people can try it out and fix the issue.

Let me know if this solves your problem as well and whether or not you are now able to connect both of your buds.

  1. Great, I did everything prior to your method to fix the problem to no avail. Finally it worked for me as well. Thanks.

  2. You can leave a picture of this button here? I’m very afraid to press the wrong place and break something

  3. yes, please.. appreciate if the author can provide a picture, There’s a hole in below the “R” and “L” indicator, which I gently tried to press it but it seems that it feels like its not a button so I never applied to much force since I am afraid to break something.

  4. Got mine recovered. The battery actually got drained and the charging case is not functioning properly when you tried to charge a low battery bud. You’ll notice that when you put the ear bud to the charging case, the inner LED turns red then into green for a few seconds, this somewhat shows that the charging case can’t get the actual state of charge the ear bud thus exiting the charging. To get this fix, you need to re-seat the ear bud for a couple of times until you get a continuous red LED, then wait it to get it fully charged.

    To avoid this issue, make it sure not to let the earbud battery drain around 10%.

    • Thanks a lot for this. My left ear bud too got disconnected. I thought there may be an issue with the buds. Turns out the battery had drained too low. After trying your method, got the earbuds to charge again.

    • I had a similar problem, whatever I did, one of the buds shown disconnected . I put it in the case several times to see the red light LED. I repeated this several times until the bud was connected to the device with 1 % of critical percentage. after while it back with percentage battry. thank you.

  5. Worked for me, after several times of putting on and off the earbud now seems that’s starting to charge…
    Hope this helps.

  6. Is someone able to send a picture of the the bud pointing out which is the button? There is a hole which does not feel like a button when pushing something into it and the other looks like a light
