Realme has several truly wireless earbuds in its arsenal. This includes the Realme Buds Air, Realme Buds Air Pro, and Realme Buds Q-series. One major problem users have been facing with Realme TWS is that one side, the left or right earbud, stops working automatically after some time. Therefore, this article will look at different methods to fix Realme and Dizo Buds one side not working problem in detail.

Some older Realme Buds models follow a master-slave relationship. The right earbud is connected to the phone, and the left is paired with the right earbud. In contrast, newer models like the Realme Buds Air connect individually to the device.

Irrespective of the models, many users have been facing a strange issue wherein the left earbud would automatically stop working. We, too, have experienced it with our Realme Buds Air Pro, wherein the left side stops playing music with a buzz.

While there’s no straightforward solution, below are some tried and tested troubleshooting steps you can use to fix the problem. These methods will work on the following TWS models:

  • Realme Buds Air Pro
  • Realme Buds Air 3
  • Realme Buds Air 2
  • Realme Buds Air Neo
  • Realme Buds Air 3s
  • Realme Buds Q2
  • Realme Buds Air 3 Neo
  • Realme Buds Q2s

The Realme Buds use an optical sensor to detect if they are being used. Hence, they can automatically pause music once you remove them. The buds also have connectors at the stem bottom to charge when sitting inside the case.

The sensors or the charging connector may not work correctly if dirty, causing disconnection issues. So, clean the buds and the charging connector at the bottom. Also, clean the dirt and debris from charging pins inside the charging column in case.

  • Clean the Realme Buds Charging Connectors
  • Clean the Realme Buds Charging Column in Case

If it’s the charging at fault, notice the battery percentage of the left earbud- it will always be on the verge of dying and keep disconnecting. The connector needs to be in contact for the buds to charge properly.

Method 2- Charge the Realme Buds
