My Bluetooth device sees the Block Party Live but is unable to connect to it. How do I get my device to re-connect?

In your device's Bluetooth settings, select the "Block Party Live" and choose "Forget Device". On the front of the Block Party Live, press the Disconnect button. After turning the unit off and on again you should be able to pair your device. 


My battery shows a low charge but when I put on the party lights, they sometimes strobe when I don't want them to. What do I do?

If you get unwanted strobing from the party lights and the battery shows a low charge, connect the Block Party Live to a wall power source for immediate functionality and to begin charging your battery, or turn off the party lights until you are able to recharge the battery to a higher level for continued audio.

Since the lights can use a large amount of power, a single green battery status light left on the battery charge may not be enough to power both the lights and the music. The battery life of a fully charged Block Party Live is up to 75 hours with music only and up to 6 hours with lights and music.
