Welcome back! Do you have the original manual for the earbuds?
This is from the Altec Lansing support site, which is just general help:
"A. Make sure your Bluetooth device is turned on and is on the discoverable mode, a blinking blue light denotes that the speaker is ready to accept connections.
B. Make sure your speaker is not already connected with another device (the easiest way to determine this is if you see a steady blue light in the center of the speaker).
C. If you want to connect with another device, disconnect the previously connected device and try pairing again.
D. If you had already paired your device and connection was successful prior but now your connection is failing or getting a connection error, unpair /forget device (for IOS devices) from your phone or mp3 player and pair again. Now try to connect.
E. If you are pairing the first device to the speaker, after you turn on the speaker and when you see a steady blinking blue light, select device model from the list of discovered Bluetooth devices to pair. If prompted for a password/pass code enter “0000”.
F. When you are turning ON the speaker for the first time it automatically tries to connect to the last paired device, if it cannot find the last paired device and you have paired multiple devices it will try to establish connection with the previously paired devices. If none of the paired devices are available to connect it will turn to a discoverable mode and this can take anywhere from 5 to 90 seconds. If you are trying to establish a connection during this time you will receive an error. Kindly wait for approximately 90 seconds, scan your MP3 player or phone to discover new devices in the Bluetooth manager screen of your device and select the model number from that list which you wish to pair. If prompted for a password/pass code enter “0000”.
G. If none of the above options work, please refer to your Owner’s Manual which came with your Altec product or contact our technical support line at 1.855.292.4087."
