how to reset sonos speaker



It can be a little confusing, but resetting your Sonos speaker is actually quite simple. You don't need any special tools, and you don't have to worry about damaging anything. All you have to do is follow these steps:

Disconnect power and Ethernet cable

If you’re having trouble resetting your Sonos speaker, disconnect both the power cable and Ethernet cable. Leave the speaker disconnected for at least ten seconds and then reconnect both cables. If this doesn’t work, move on to step two.

Press the Connect button

Press and hold the Connect button for 10 seconds. It's located on the back of your speaker, near the bottom.

After you release the button, wait for a moment to see if your speaker reconnects to its network. If it does not reconnect automatically, try connecting manually.

Reconnect power and Ethernet cable

  • Don't press the reset button on your sonos speaker. It's located on the back of the device, near where you would plug in an Ethernet cable.

  • Don't hold down Ctrl+Alt+Esc on your computer keyboard and then press R to reset it (this is only applicable to Windows systems).

  • Don't unplug your modem or router and wait a while before reconnecting them (this is also only applicable to wired connections).

  • Don't pull out all wires from both ends of any type of network connection, such as those used by your internet provider or phone company (typically these are found somewhere in an exterior wall by a window).
