If the power on your Beats Pill 1.0 won't turn on or if it is unable to connect to other devices--either through bluetooth or through audio jack--employ this process to replace the motherboard. Before using this guide, double check the troubleshooting page. For instance, you may need only to plug in the charging cable or connect using a different audio cord.

The motherboard is the main circuit of the device, meaning some special skills are needed in order to transpose it. Step 5 requires wire stripping. From there, you will need to solder the battery to the new motherboard as part of Step 6.

Remember to disconnect your Beats Pill 1.0 from a power source and to turn off the device before beginning the replacement process.

  1. Using the spudger, create space between the speaker covers and then remove. On the underside of the device, remove the rubber stand with the BeatsPill logo on it. Using an ESD-safe Phillips #0 screwdriver, remove the four screws that were underneath the rubber stand.

    I bought a brand new Beats Pill 1.0 online last week the first night it seemed to work all right the next day I charged it I plugged it in and it was crackling on the left hand side from the front and now the whole volume of both sides very low but it is still getting a Bluetooth connectivity I tried to reset it by holding the baby and the power button to get this thing in the back to flag it would not reset that way any suggestions I meant it is for a lot of money I paid $170 I thought I was getting a brand new device

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know from where I can buy a motherboard for a Beats Pill??

While trying to repair I snapped that yellow part with the thin copper running through it, I tried to repair this with superglue but I don't think it worked. Not sure what the part does but is it still safe to use?

Calvin Carroll - Yanıt

Hey Calvin. Unfortunately that part is actually a flexible circuit. Superglue unfortunately will not restore the ability for current to travel through the cable, as superglue doesn't conduct. I imagine the device is safe to use, however the device will not work. If you do power it on, I would monitor the device to see if heat is being generated, as this can be dangerous. You will need to find an intact cable to replace the broken one, though, to restore the device to working order.

Good afternoon,

I am trying to figure the value of the inductor sitting behind the micro USB charging connector. That inductor was the one causing the failure in my case. Can anyone tell me?

Looking for power board for my beats pill model A1680, thanks

Travis Zimmerman - Yanıt

I think the beats pill 1.0 sucks, all mine does is gets super hot at both ends when trying to even charge the thing. I’ve tried a different plug, audio cable, the default mode reset, it won’t charge & hasn’t e Ed Ben turned on for a second. I’ve tried calling Apple for assistance - I had a case -# & 2 people helping me, then they just dropped me like a bad apple (no pun intended) & closed my case when it wasn’t even resolved or looked at. They know exactly what’s wrong w/these speakers!
