Please !  I appreciate your are trying to help me, but it so frustrating when you dont read what I have actually posted.

 

Ive tested the output of the Sonos into another source,  It has the same volume issue. There is a stream but at max vol it is barely audible,

I have tested the secondary system with a different input and that works fine..

The only change is the App. 

Could you confirm the other errors you see please ?

There is no line-in connection thats why you dont see one !

The connections to the connect are :-  2 network cables and the line-out and the power lead.

The only other thing I see its a potential fault with a network cable ?

I have plugged Connect back in after 45 mins, no change to volume - still very faint. Now some intermittent crackling.

Is there a reference number I should supply to Customer care ?

Hi @LJ2018, thank you for your response and for submitting another diagnostic. We appreciate you for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. Let me help you with this.

The troubleshooting steps we provided depending on the error we found in the diagnostic report. Looking at the latest diagnostic, I still see the same errors and some of your speakers (2 Play 1's and 1 Connect Amp) don't have a connection to our Sonos cloud server. I would still recommend performing the steps we provided in this thread since the issue was not resolved. To address the cloud connection of your speakers, you can perform a sequential reboot of your network devices, all your Sonos products, and force close mobile controllers to refresh the connection. 

We really appreciate the time and effort you've spent in resolving this issue, it would be best for you to continue working with us over the phone to expedite the process. I recommend contacting our Sonos Customer Care support to perform in-depth troubleshooting with your full network setup including the make and model of each device and to do some tests on the Sonos app to isolate the issue to provide the best option for you.

Please feel free to reach out in the future if you have any other questions. You're always welcome here.

Apologies.  The I was at work and not at home and the audio stream was inactive.  Completely my error I was trying to speed things along.

Ive replicated the error and submitted more diagnostics.  Confirmation Number 1010030269

 

That said I have read your above comments.  It is so frustrating when you blame the hardware, when the hardware has been in place for 9 years, was working and the only change has been an app update !

I also stated there is a sound feed but it is very faint.

Ive also stated above the Volume is set to fixed and has been since install, setting it to pass thru results in the same extremely low volume.

Ive connected another device to the second system (replacing the sonos element) and it performs as it should with the correct volume.  So the fault is definitely with the sonos connect.

 

The connect is currently unplugged for the 30 mins as suggested above - it does not have speakers attached, only 2 network cables and the line-out are in use)

 

Please review the new diagnostics.  1010030269

Hi @LJ2018, thank you for your response and for submitting another diagnostic for us to check. Let me help you with this.

Based on the diagnostic, there's no line-in connection on your Sonos Connect and the ethernet cable is potentially faulty. This could be one of the reasons why you're not getting audio. Also, an audio dropout was detected in your due to sync error and the audio feed is too slow causing the playback to stop.

Let me suggest the next troubleshooting and see if it works for you.

  1. Power off your Sonos Connect.
    • Disconnect the left and right speakers and line-in connection. 
    • Wait for at least 30 minutes.
    • Reconnect all the connections and power it back on.
    • Start playback to test the audio.
  2. Check the volume.
    • Depending on your Line-Out Level setting, you may need to adjust the volume in both the Sonos app and on your receiver
    • If you have your Line-Out Level set to Fixed, you will need to adjust the volume on the receiver or device that you have connected to Port or Connect.
    • If the Line-Out Level is set to Variable or Pass-Through, try adjusting the volume on both the receiver and in the Sonos app. 
  3. Change the wireless channel on the Sonos app
    • Settings > System > Network > Networks > SonosNet Channel > Set it to 11
    • Observe your Sonos system performance.

If you're still not getting audio from your connect, it would be best for you to continue working with us over the phone to expedite the process. I recommend contacting our Sonos Customer Care support to perform further troubleshooting to provide the best option for you.

Please let us know if you still have further questions or concerns. We are always here to help.

Hi folks,

@Airgetlam and @controlav, thank you for your usual assistance. We really appreciate it. 

@LJ2018, thank you for reaching out to us and welcome to the Sonos community. I appreciate you for providing us your concern and submitting the diagnostic. Let me help you and figure out what's happening.

Upon checking the report, it's telling me that the diagnostic was incomplete and not returning any information about your system. However, I can see that all your speakers are online.

Can you please submit another diagnostic? You can also try to submit from another mobile device/controller and include the confirmation numbers in your response for us to check. 

If you have any questions about this. We and the community are always here to help.

Any reply please Sonos ?

Hopefully, a Sonos rep will be along to look at it.

Great - thanks have submitted the diagnostics as requested

And I’d think a bot would require a ‘Sonos employee’ badge of some type. I’ve never seen Sonos use such a technology, likely due to the complexity of interpreting the data in a diagnostic versus the problem reported. Not impossible, I think, but they’ve never expended the effort, as least to my knowledge. 

I think I’m real...but I do use copy/pasted responses due to the need for so many issues that need basically the same response.

Thanks for reply.  Are you real or an Answer bot please ?

Problem is persistent.

 

Diagnostics - submitted - 1445311186
 

Lots of good details, but I would recommend that you submit a system diagnostic within 10 minutes of duplicating this problem, and call Sonos Support to discuss it, or post the number here.

There may be information included in the diagnostic that will help Sonos pinpoint the issue and help you find a solution.

When you speak directly to the phone folks, there are more options available beyond just the diagnostic analysis.
