I was playing on my Xbox when the arc suddenly made an extremely loud pop sound and then lost audio completely. The app wouldn’t let me adjust the volume and Alexa wake up didn’t emit its usual tone. I had to remove the power from the arc and reapply which resumed the audio. I’m concerned that one of the speakers in the arc may have been damaged when this happened. Has anyone had this issue?We have had no issues with the arc since purchasing it earlier this year.

Desktop and Android app have started telling me "spotify returned no results for _____ in artists. Please try a different category or a new search term" this morning. Has replicated on multiple devices. Only happens for Spotify and only in "artists", albums and playlist search still works. Any idea if I changed a setting or if something is wrong on their end?I’ve reset the speakers and restarted the apps.
The past couple of months when playing music from Spotify on any of the sonos speakers the music skips to the next song or stops playing at random points. It can be after 2 songs or half a day. The controller reports connection to spotify lost. Sometimes i can immediately click play again and it starts over but sometimes it takes 1-10 min before i can resume. Meanwhile i can play from other sources just fine so it seems like a Spotify specific issue. If i try to play using spotify connect then as i select the speaker, it changes it back to the previous target.
I was so excited to receive my Sonos Era 300 yesterday. Everything sounded great at first. But last night I was going to fall asleep to some music like I sometimes do and I noticed a static pop sound. It’s like listening to your music while someone is slowly closing a bag of chips. I tried everything. Unplugged, reset, tried playing through both the Sonos and Apple Music app and it still did it. Anyone else notice this issue?I’m hoping it’s a software issue, but I’m not waiting to see if it is

HiDid the update last night and ever since, my Boost sporadically shows as ‘updating’ on the app, with a blue dot next to it. It does sometimes show as normal but then reverts to this ‘updating’ status. It isn’t updating though and everything seems to be working fine. So looks like just a glitch and I have noticed folks on Reddit also commented the same.Anyone else got this little issue?
Hi guys, I just bought the Sonos Arc and the new Sub Gen 3 and I paired them with 2 Sonos One (Gen 1) speakers for the surround setup. Yesterday I noticed that while idling and playing, there are some tiny constant crackling/static/electric current sounds coming from the brand new Sub and I found it quite irritating. So what I did first was to make sure that the connection with the power cord is secure, which it was. Then I tried to remove the Sub from the group, factory reset it and added it back to the system. But the same issue persists. I don’t suppose this is normal, right? Does anyone has a similar issue with the new Sub? I’ve checked my Sonos Arc, One and Beam and none of them has this issue. Since I just bought it from Best Buy last week, should I return it and get a new one to see if it’s something wrong with the one I’ve got? It’s not a cheap device and I don’t want to compromise on its quality. Thank you all!
After updating to 9.0 on iOS, I am getting the message "Sonos App controls no longer appear on your lock screen" on all my updated devices. The lock screen controls stopped working on all my controllers with above message. I do not have any other music player running nor I have any sort of voice over configured. Settings for the app are correct with both hardware volume control and lock screen controls enabled on all devices.
Hi Play:5, manufacturing date sometime around 2009, is completely dead. No light in LED. Found several cases of this online, but no solutions. Does anyone have any knowledge about the problem, og better yet, schematics.. I mainly suspect problem in switch mode power supply. Have only done very basic measuring, but I find 220VAC on primary side, no power on secondary side. I think about ordering a mosfet, and/or a diode I suspect, but if I had schematics I could do some more pinpointing..
Hi, I've recently acquired a ZP100 however it looks to be stuck in the boot process with a single white light flashing endlessly. It doesn't appear responsive to holding the mute button on bootup. On powerup all of the network port light flash briefly and the connection lights are solid if wired to bridge via ethernet. I know this is an old product and I know it is my fault for purchasing it, but is there any other reset tricks or way to update the firmware to get out of this loop?
Hi, I have a pair of Play:1's in my kitchen, configured as a stereo pair. Several times now (maybe, on average, once every 2 weeks), the right speaker stops working. Once it stops, it never comes back and the only way I can get it to come back is to separate the pair, and recreate it. This (so far) has worked immediately every time, so it appears the speaker itself works fine (in fact, when I separate it, I can always play music directly on it). I have a couple of other pairs of Play:1's in my setup, and only ever get this problem with the same, right, speaker in my kitchen zone. Nether speakers are wired. Any ideas why I keep getting this problem? For Sonos support, my Diagnostic confirmation number is: 603946054. Thanks.
Tried using Sonos with Golden Master of Catalina and its a no go. When I add my music library on an external drive it does so normally but NO songs in the folder are recognized. Wonder if it has to do with Music being the new app for music instead of iTunes?I was able to see music added if it was on the internal drive of the machine.
I noticed that songs playing from a Spotify playlist we’re skipping again. This has happened numerous times over the past several years. I followed the suggestion from someone in support and purchased a Boost. The problem sorta went away. After the last update to the app and speakers this week, the skipping has started again. Unless you’re paying attention you probably wouldn’t notice it. One song plays and then next song will play for about 15-20 seconds and then will skip one or two songs and start playing again. I’m the past a notice would pop up saying “Connection to Spotify was lost” The past couple of days no pop up message. It just skips to another song. I did the unplugging the modem/router and all the speakers+Boost. What I did discover that this is happening when the CROSSFADE is On. I like crossfade but I totally dislike the songs skipping. I have turned it off 3 times and it seems to work fine. I turn it back on and the skipping resumes. I couldn’t find this issue anywh
Good evening, My system updated to 15.2 today and following this update, all of my speakers’ volumes are easily double what they were before. I run one of my Play 1’s at volume 4 at night and have done for years, but volume 4 is now way too loud and even setting it to 1 is very loud. I have 2x Play 1’s, 1x Play 3 and the latest Five and it’s the same on all of them. I’ve had to set a volume limit of 50% on each speaker but now all of my volume references for me and my family are all over the place which is incredibly annoying. Any ideas?
Hi, I went on my phone and went on to the Sonos App , i went down to click T Bedroom and it wasn't there. It completely has disappeared and I can't listen to my music through Sonos. It has always worked as I always listen to music in my room. Do you know how I add my room back in? What is the problem?
FEATURE REQUEST: Add option to enable "Center speakers" for the ERA's 300, if they are added as surrounds
After suggestion by @Corry P in the Sonos Era 300 wall mount positioning post, where we discussed the issue of ERA’s 300 “center speaker” not playing at all, while added as surrounds.I asked this:@Corry P I don’t want to “reach”, but couldn’t there be a toggle to enable the “center driver” for example only for music?Something like the Surround Audio — Music Playback feature.So at least in music scenarios, ERAs are not “crippled” in surround setup. Because in “stereo” standalone mode without ARC, they sound much better in my opinion. Corry P replied:Hi @Majo133 Perhaps - I recommend you start a new topic making this point and it will be marked as a feature request. Thanks! I am therefore creating this post marked as “Feature request” and i am requesting feature described below. Feature to be added:“Allow user to manually enable center speakers of the ERA’s 300, if they are added as surrounds to the ARC/BEAM + SUB setup.”This could be added for example only for music playback, to the se
Hi All. Since the Apple Music outage a few days ago I just get the message “Unable to browse music” when trying yo use Apple Music. I have removed and reloaded the account, reauthorised it etc to no avail. I have a family account and I did notice that my partners library was working fine which seemed odd. Its becoming a pain now as not all of my set u is Airpaty compatible so fiddling about to link things isn't very user friendly ! I see this seems to have happened over the years but wondered if anyone had a resolution to this ?
Is anybody else experiencing this. It only started happening yesterday and I have had my Beam for about a year. I have the Beam connected to my Samsung Smart TV using HDMI (ARC) and it happened when I started a YouTube video through the TV YouTube app. There was a loud buzzing noise over the audio. At first I thought it was a TV problem, but I switched to the TV speaker and it was fine. When I switched back to HDMI the problem persisted. I also unplugged the HDMI from the Beam and plugged it back in but the problem persisted. After rebooting the Beam (by removing and reinserting the power cord) the problem went away. However it has happened at least 3 times over the last 24 hours. It should be noted that if I stream to the beam over airplay while in this state the buzzing doesn’t happen. Also the Beam is in a surround setup with a Sub and 2 Sonos Ones. As it just started happening I wondered if it was due to a software update or something.
