Having your Yip smart tag suddenly start beeping randomly can be annoying and concerning. But in most cases, it’s an easy fix—and this guide will walk you through exactly how to troubleshoot and resolve random beeping from your Yip tag quickly.

What Causes Random Beeping in Yip Tags?

Before jumping into the step-by-step troubleshooting instructions, it helps to understand what typically causes a Yip tag to start beeping randomly in the first place.

The most common culprits include:

  • Loose or misaligned internal battery springs
  • A worn or faulty battery
  • Signal interference from other devices
  • Outdated device firmware

Fortunately, the problem is usually caused by loose battery springs inside the tag. With a few quick adjustments, you can stop the beeping and get your tag working properly again.

How to Troubleshoot and Fix Random Beeping

Follow these steps to troubleshoot random beeping from your Yip tag:

1. Remove the Back Cover and Battery

  • Use a quarter to unscrew and remove the round back cover
  • Gently remove the battery—you may need a pen to pop it out

2. Locate and Adjust the Battery Springs

  • Inside the battery compartment, you’ll see two small metal springs
  • Gently pull up on the springs using your fingers—do not pull straight up or they may break
  • The springs should look aligned as shown in the photo below after adjusting
