Hi there and welcome

Can you please hold the home and power buttons on the iPhone for about 10 seconds until you see the apple logo then release.

Let the iPhone restart, then try to pair it to the charge and tell me if it now connects and works please.

JBL Charge

yes but there are different models...

Explain the steps please you are taking to try to pair it

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
My phone isn't showing my device. So therefore I cannot connect it to Bluetooth.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

Push your JBL Charge power button until it flashes red and blue. As soon as it is flashing red and blue it will be discoverable by your iPhone.

Let me know the results

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It only blinks blue
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

ok, as it is blinking blue, try to see it on the iPhone please.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It's not showing up on the iPhone
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

on the iPhone, go to settings, general, reset, reset network settings

Once done, repeat the instructions to pair and tell me if it then works.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It did not work out something must be wrong with the speaker
Expert:  Richard replied 1 month ago.

Correct

It is the internal bluetooth module that has faulted, else it would be showing now

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the Charge to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
