Question: Left and/or Airpod Not Working after re-pairing, toggling various settings, Apple TV not seeing them?
I tried everything. From multiple forums. When it hit me, why were there a lot of ppl with this same problem but not anywhere near the # of ppl who are obviously are buying them? Time is the answer, my friend, Time.
First, Airpods get dirty. Thankfully, they are easy to clean with their porcelain-ish finish. But how about the case receptors? They obviously collect dirt, dust, ear wax, pizza crumbs, etc. So, I tried the only thing that has worked: Clean the Airpod Case and the stems of the Airpods, themselves.
Follow these steps:
1) Take the Airpods out of the case.
2) Grab a Q-tip.
3) Get your wife's bottle of nail polish remover (or your own - acetone). Side note: I originally thought of rubbing alcohol but didn't none nearby.
4) Dip 1 Q-Tip into acetone and then into the bottom of each of the two holes in the Airpod case and twist it in there for a few seconds).
5. Take same Q-Tip and clean the bottom of the stems where the Airpod comes into contact at the bottom of the hole. Let dry for 30 seconds.
And within 1 min....voila'! Iphone did the animation (which had grown erratic), appeard as a selectable audio output on my Apple TV., etc. etc. etc.
Hope this helps as I love these things too much to be buying or waiting in line in to exchane them.
