I have a Sonos Gen 2 that has been misbehaving badly lately, and this is a last-ditch effort to try to resurrect it.
When connected to Ethernet, it powers on and then I get a solid white light.
When not on Ethernet, it flashes white several times and then the light goes out.
When I factory reset on Ethernet, it flashes white 3 times, then goes into a sequence of 4 white/orange flashes, then it repeats the sequence as long as I keep the button on the back held down.
If I hold the PLAY/PAUSE button, it flashes white a few times and then goes solid red.
Looking at my Pi-Hole device list, it DOES show up in my list of Ethernet devices and is assigned an IP address, so there is *some* life to it.
I have tried factory resetting it several times, both on/off Ethernet, including at the request of a Sonos chat agent, to no avail. It’s not under warranty anymore so it’s effectively “trash”, which I feel terrrible about. One of those “worked yesterday, now doesn’t work” situations, and there really isnt any excuse for that. I have 6 other Sonos speakers of different types, including one that is almost 10 years old, and they all work fine.
Hi. First, please stop factory resetting the speaker. All you are doing is destroying potential diagnostic information.
Does the speaker work OK when connected by Ethernet?
