JBL Flip 2 Bluetooth Speaker Complete Teardown, Diagnosis, and Rebuild

My friend John moved back to South Africa last year, and he sorta “bequeathed” me his old JBL Flip 2 Bluetooth speaker. It’s got great sound, but a slight problem when charging: the USB port is extremely loose, and you have to wrap the cord around the speaker in a jury-rigged fashion to keep it held in place. After a few weeks, I finally decided to take the thing apart and see if I could fix it.

After a little exploratory surgery, I found that the source of the problem was that the USB connector had essentially come unsoldered from the PCB it was attached to. A little bit of solder and the prodigious use of E6000 later, the JBL Flip 2 Bluetooth speaker is back to operating like new!

How to install the Insignia USB Bluetooth adapter in Windows 7

EDIT 1/16/2017: Commenter Anony Mous (haha, well done) has confirmed that the HP drivers work with the Insignia Bluetooth adapter as well. I have both the Lenovo and the HP copies of the drivers mirrored here.

EDIT 12/29/2016: Commenter Angry Dude has found a mirror for an older driver at Lenovo’s website. Give it a try for now until a proper solution is found.

EDIT 12/13/2016: It seems that Broadcom has pulled the Windows 7 driver for this device. I will investigate and update as I find more information!

This is more for future reference than anything considering it comes with paper instructions to download some software and does not come with a disc. Welcome to the future!

  1. Plug the adapter into a free USB port.
  2. Download the driver and software from http://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php
    http://airbornesurfer.com/filebox/s/IRTwmeWyBnJsAL1
  3. Install the driver and restart the computer when finished.
  4. Profit!
