I have been using a Roam through the Sonos 2 app with no issues. The Roam is controlled by either the iOS app on my Macbook or the android app on my phone. The two apps synced perfectly.Today I added a Move using the android app. The Move functions properly but I no longer see the Roam on my phone app and it is not displayed as a product that can be added. On the other hand, the MacBook app continues to show only the Roam without displaying the Move as a product to be added. If I add songs to a queue on either app, it does not appear on the other app. What have I done wrong?
My Sonos Roam is making a quiet clicking sound shortly after any media stops playing. This started after it went into sleep mode last night while I was out. I came home & plugged it in, only to hear somewhat faint popping sounds from the drivers about 3 seconds after any sound is played, even the sounds from using the physical buttons. I restarted the speaker & the problem persists. I had plugged in the speaker at some point and as I was plugging it in, the drivers made the same quiet popping sounds for a few seconds. After powering it off the speaker for the night, I am certain I kept hearing slight pops from the speaker even though it was off (whenever I put it near my ear). I'm sort of scared to power it on, as I don't want to damage the speaker or let it bug out and play loud harsh noise as some people say it's done. My unti is a replacement unit from circa February 2022 when my original speaker made rattling noises. I was planning on buying a Sonos Era 100 but with problem
Hi,I have two Sonos Move units and just reset them to factory settings after they stopped connecting to my WiFi. All is good except one of the units top plate (with the volume controls) is no longer working… Has anyone experienced this before? What’s the fix? Is this a hardware issue that needs to be replaced or is there an easier fix?Thanks
Hello,My Sonos Roam (owned for almost 2 years) suddenly won’t power on even after staying on a charger (both wireless charging and with cord). I’ve tried doing the 12 second power button hold for a factory reset but it doesn’t do anything. Please help!
I have a Move set up in my home office that is usually in bluetooth mode so it auto-connects to my Samsung monitor. I use the Move for meeting audio from my laptop, which is connected via HDMI to my monitor.The move will emit a long chime, usually in the early hours of the morning. I’m guessing that this is something to do with it identifying a device to pair to?Anyhow, it can wake me up so I’d like to see how I can disable the audio notification or prevent it from happening. I’ve tried putting the Move into standby but it seems to switch itself on after a while.
Until recently it was possible to start and pause play from the button on top of my Move when connected to my iPhone over AirPlay. Now I can pause if the speaker is playing, but if I press ‘play’ again the indicator light flashes white but audio doesn’t play. I am on the most recent software for my iPhone and the Move, I can’t tell if this is an AirPlay bug or a Sonos bug (also it is impossible to search this topic because Sonos has a product called Play, and ‘play audio’ is what I’m enquiring about, and the button on top of the speaker is the play button...).
When I go into the Sonos S2 controller app on my Ipad or Iphone, there are a lot of occasions where the Sonos Roam just does not show up at all, even after turning it back off and on again. I can see some of the other Sonos devices but not the Roam. I’ve also noticed the power button has a mind of it’s own, sometimes when I press it nothing happens, sometimes it comes on, sometimes I keep my finger on the button it might come on, then other times it might not and I have to plug it into the power supply to get it to come on. I just find this device so hit and miss and inconsistent.
i have 2 amp which are each connected to 4 in-ceiling speakers in 2 different rooms and I love having music as I move from room to room. I would also like to enjoy the same music on a separate floor, without installing ‘in ceiling’ speakers. Is there a way to do this?
Recently, one of my Roams has stopped playing music when grouped with a Play 1 or Sonos Five. Up until now, it has worked pretty much flawlessly. The Sonos app will show the Roam is in the same group as the other speaker, but no sound is coming out. I have tried grouping and un-grouping speakers in different order, starting with the Roam and then adding Play 1 or starting with Play 1 and then adding Roam. The app will show the group, but no sound out of the Roam. Interestingly enough, I can use the Sonos Voice Control to start and stop music on the Play 1 or Five.I use an Orbi RBR 750 and have the 2.4 GHz channel set to 6. I also have a Sonos Boost and my Orbi app shows that my speakers, except the portable ones, are on SonosNet. The Roamand Move are on the Orbi WiFi. I have done a factory reset the Roam and still have the same problem when I try and group the speakers.This has been very frustrating. I have a second, newer Roam that does not stay connected to my network at all. I
Hey all, I recently acquired a Sonos Roam speaker that I want to share between my smartphone (iPhone 14) and my wife's smartphone (iPhone 13).The 2 smartphones are up to date as far as iOS is concerned.The Sonos application is installed on the iPhone 14 to install the device and control it. When I want to stream music in AirPlay 2 from the iPhone 14, it works fine.When I want to do the same thing from iPhone 13, I get the message "unable to connect to Sonos Roam". The most surprising thing is that the error message is immediate, as if there were a setting on the iPhone that forbade AirPlay 2!!!! What's the problem??? As for the Bluetooth connection, it works perfectly on both iPhones.It even seems to me that the Bluetooth connection is more stable than the one with AirPlay 2!When the AirPlay connection is lost, the Sonos Roam is unable to recover it. You have to switch it off, then on again, and re-establish the connection from the iPhone. Many thanks,
I have a Sonos Move that is no longer playing any audio that is sent to it. It shows up on the network and if I stream music to it, it will show as if it is playing but no audio comes out.If I do any troubleshooting steps (ie. reboot router, reset Move to factory settings), it will work but will ultimately revert back to having the same issue.This issue started a couple of weeks ago so think it might be related to 14.6 update but no way of knowing for certain.I also have Beam on my network and both play fine.Is anyone having the same issue or can anyone recommend steps to fix (beyond what I have already done)?Thank you!
Hello, I have a video projector (Optoma UHD38) connected by an HDMI cable to my internet box (Freebox Revolution). I would like to be able to broadcast the sound coming from the video projector directly to the Sonos Move 2. Do you know if this is possible? Is there a solution using the bluetooth option on the Sonos Move 2 by chance? I am open to all types of configurations and solutions that would allow me to do this. Thank you in advance for your help Nicolas. PS : and below a rear view of my Optoma UHD38
Hello,As the title says, my Roam takes much longer to auto power down vs my Roam SL. Mic is enabled on the Roam.Is this a bug ? Wifi power save & battery saver both enabled for the stereo pair.I’d much rather they power down at the same time as the roam runs out of battery much quicker than the Roam SL.Thanks in advance.
My phone connects to my roam over Bluetooth, but no audio plays from the speaker. I have tried forgetting the device and re-pairing the devices, but the same issue persists. The roam works fine over WiFi on my home Sonos network, but the Bluetooth functionality is useless?
My Move would not update. It’s on the S2 version and out of the blue it quit working. Per the directions in the app, I tried to downgrade to S1 to apply the update hoping I could then add it back to the S2 version - that also gave me an error that the unit could not be downgraded. I had given up on the unit assuming it was just not going to update. THEN, weeks later, when I was checking some security setting in my Orbi app, I saw that the Sonos Move was showing as “blocked.” After unblocking it, the update worked. I don’t know how or why it ended up as blocked in the Orbi system. Anyway, I hope this helps someone else.
Originally, after working for a couple years, suddenly my Roam couldn’t connect to any stations. If I grouped it with other players, it worked fine. Ungrouped and it can’t connect on its own. So, I rebooted it (turned off by pressing power button for 5 seconds removed from charger). That didn’t work. So I figured I’d remove it and add the device back in. I did a Reset to factory settings. Then as I added the Roam back to my system, it made it thru all the steps (WiFi included) except the final one of Linking device to my account. That’s where it fails now, every time. When I login to Sonos.com, I see the Roam device (by serial number) in the list of my devices. I now wonder if there’s a bug where it can’t link to my account because it’s already there. Frustrating. Anyone else been thru this?
I have many Sonos products including the Move and the Move ring charger. Just noticed the lights blinking red while sitting in the charger. Tried to plug it in and gives me the orange blinking I'm charging lights.The app says, "battery depleted." Please help!I'm afraid this thing is dead.
Hey folks,I've got a Sonos Roam and I'm bumping into an issue. To connect it to Airplay, I have to go through the whole process of resetting the device. But here's the kicker: the very next day, that dreaded "unable to connect to Sonos Roam" message pops up again. Got any solutions before I think about making the switch to a HomePod?I’ve already tried everything on these posts: https://www.airplayguru.com/sonos-airplay-not-working Many thanks!
