Hello, this is an issue I have had for some time now when switching to S2 but finally getting around to asking why this is happening: I have a beam connected to my tv and when watching tv, works without issue (5.0 setup with 2 ones). However, when I group either our move or roan to the TV setup, they both will skip / have poor connection to TV audio (however the beam and ones still work smoothly) this is unique only to tv audio. When I stream music or anything else, there’s no issue. Pre s2, it was not a problem at all. I’ve tried resetting everything, software is up to date, etc and nothing seems to work. any help is appreciated.
We have a Roam that’s about a year old. It’s been working fine since we got it, but it’s been a few months since we’ve used it. We went to use it today (it’s been sitting on its charge pad) and it was warm and wouldn’t connect or do anything - no lights, no noises…even a factory reset wouldn’t do anything. We’ve taken it off charge for now, but does anyone have any ideas on what we could do?
Hi all,After some month of mixed usage of Sonos Move, I updated to 14.18 and noticed immediately that bass got boosted a lot and also I lost clarity on vocals. I can turn up high in eq but it takes high frequency too high to open up the vocals.i was really satisfied with it till now (used with 0/0 eq and loudness on). Now I can't listen to it, I feel tired ears after some minutes and sound quality got a lot worse. Anyone had the same issue? Any suggestion on how to troubleshoot/solve it?Thanks
Hello Guys, i have the following problem. I want to use the battery mode of the sonos one but it stops working when it is removed from the charging dock. It also does not turn on when not on the charging dock although according to the app the battery is fully charged. It works only when placed on the charging dock. Has anyone had this problem? thanks in advance!Stan
I cannot connect via Sonos app or Bluetooth. In the app it says “offline”. I can’t see it in AirPlay. I do have several Sonos speakers that work just as they should (wifi and AirPlay). My roam has been plugged in for awhile so I think I can eliminate battery or wireless charging (don’t own it) I did try powering it down I walked through find missing products multiple times. Note that restarting my router is a 12 min task.The chat box appears to walk you through the help steps again so that seems useless. Thus here I am since the office is closed anyone have an idea?
Hi, I have Apple TV with AirPlay but cannot get it to connect to Sonos Roam via bluetooth - constantly says PIN is incorrect; style of PIN on bottom of speaker is NNN-NN-NNN. Any ideas why this won’t work?Also about to get Chromecast with Google TV (latest version); can this use Sonos Roam or One speakers as audio output?Thank’s in advance :-)
Hello, I have a Sonos Roam that was purchased in April (Not used until December) that will no longer turn on. I have spent the last three days with chat giving me the runaround with different procedures on rebooting a resetting just to have them basically say “Sorry, you’re out of warrant” and would not send it any further for review. To those that have had this issue, was there any luck getting this turd to power on? I have thousands of dollars in other Sonos products that have been great, but this situation has put a bad taste in my mouth. The refusal to stand behind the product frustrates me.
I like to use my Roam as a computer speaker. I have issues where Sonos bluetooth frequently disconnects. What seems to trigger the disconnection is when while listening to music on a music player or web-browser and I play a second audio stream on some web videos on any browser (usually Twitter video) all my audio mutes and Sonos freezes and becomes unresponsive. The only way to reconnect is a hard Roam reboot.The issue only happens on Windows 10 (I tested two Windows 10 computers). The issue does not happen with Sonos Move or other bluetooth devices (airpods or UE speaker), only the Sonos Roam. I was sent a new Roam by Sonos, and both the old and new Roam have the same glitch.Try to reproduce the error on Windows 10 yourself. It happens every time I play this video with another audio stream running in the background. I would say about 50% of the videos off Twitter trigger this same issue.https://twitter.com/BarackObama/status/1555221890372861952
My ROAM is connected with Wifi and Blutoorh. Blutooth at kitchen is used to listen TV when needed. The problem I faced is that once ROAM is connected with blutooth (TV), ROAM tries to keep connectting with TV, even when I do not want to listen TV from ROAM. I can hear the TV sounds from ROAM whenever the TV is on.... What I want to do is to listen TV only when I need. Yes, I know, mute works, but this is not smart. I called SONOS local customer service and he said that ROAM is designed to keep the last blutooth connection, and once it is connected with some other blutooth device, then ROAM will not try to connect with TV again. Hmmm, this may work, but this is not smart at all and annoying to do so thking the recovry of the TV connection. Is there any 'smart' way to disconnect blutooth, via app, or voice control (alexa or sonos)?
I have three iOS based controllers and they intermittently lose visibility to the Roam or will sometimes see the Roam but you are unable to adjust the volume. There’s no pattern I can discern - one day it’s one controller, some days two but rarely will all three controllers lose visibility to the Rroam. After connecting with the working controller the other one/two controllers will mysteriously regain visibility to the Roam. All of the devices are within a 15 foot radius without any intervening walls. In addition sometimes simply rebooting the Roam resolves the issue, however this is getting annoying. I submitted a diagnostic report #591028388, however right now the controllers at home both see the Roam. Should I wait until the controllers lose visibility to the Roam and submit another report? Is there a diagnostic tool for the controllers to see what state they are in when they can’t see the Roam? Grasping at straws here!
I have had a Sonos Arc connected to my tv in my family room for about a year. I just bought a Move to use outside and in other rooms. I want to group or pair my Arc with my Move when watching TV or listening to music. I know it will not be surround sound. I added the Move to the Sonos app In the Sonos app under Settings, the Group options is grayed out. is this possible or the Move basically be a standalone speaker?
We recently upgraded our Playbar and Play 5 to an Arc and Sonos Move.Previously we could group our Playbar and Play 5 and listen to TV sound with no issues. However, since upgrading to the Arc and Move, when we group them and play TV sound the Move cuts in and out constantly and is unlistenable.We cant go back to our Play 5 setup as it is the original Play 5 which only works on the original Sonos app, not the upgraded version.Extremely disappointed as we cannot use the Move for the reason we purchased it >/ Diagnostic report: 1632836691
I have a system consisting of 6 Sonos Play 1’s, a Move and Boost. I had a new Netgear Orbi mesh wifi network installed and now I can’t connect the Play 1’s. The Move connects no problem. I’ve tried rebooting the router, powering off the devices and turning on one-by-one, connecting one Play 1 to the router via ethernet, etc. Nothing seems to work. When I try to “Add Product”, it just spins and spins. If I go to “Find Missing Products” it identifies all the devices but when I do the “push-2-buttons-simultaneously” thing I end up with an “Unable to join the network ‘Sonos”” message. Any help is appreciated; I’m beyond frustrated.
I tried using my Move and I noticed that it wasn’t connected to the network (I have 8 SONOS products connected). The white light is constantly flashing and I cannot turn it off with the power button or by doing a factory reset. It’s just completely unresponsive.I called technical support and they were useless. The guy seemed like he had never worked with a Move before and just kept searching the web for solutions that I already tried. Then, he asked for the serial number but didn’t even know where to find it. Finally, after 30 minutes of “troubleshooting”, he told me that I needed to send the unit back to him in exchange for a 30% off coupon. What? So you want me to send the unit back to you so you can refurbish it and sell it and all I get is a 30% off coupon? What kind of business model is this? I’ve been a loyal SONOS customer for over 10 years and you can’t even offer help to fix my product or offer an exchange?
My Roam SL continues to disappear from my Sonos app or shows offline. Sometimes I have to try multiple times to turn it off and back on. Then it works fine for awhile. I disabled sleep mode and it still goes offline. I have a NetGear Orbi wifi setup. I don’t have any issues with other Sonos speakers, just the Roam SL.
i have Sonos Move but because of my OS (12+ on iphone 6) have to downgrade it to S1 in order to use it. I understand this means certain Move features may be lost but can’t find any info about what they might be. Anyone know? Another related question - if I downgrade to S1 can I then upgrade it back to S2 if I get the suitable OS (14+)?
I’ve tried doing this a few times but never succeeded in what should be a simple process. In preparation for a trip where I’d like to add the Roam to a different WiFi without resetting it, I’ve just created a new WiFi hotspot at home and am trying to add it to my Roam.Current setup:Many speakers on S1 connected to Sonosnet.Single Roam obviously on S2 connected to same network as S1.Steps taken:Switch on Roam and move phone to different WiFi (the new hotspot) and open S2:Select ‘Unable to find your system’:Select ‘Yes’:Select ‘Yes’:Select ‘Find system’:The App finds two systems even though S1 is disconnected. This also happened when on holiday, far away from the S1 system.Select ‘Continue’:Select ‘Select’. I am returned to the ‘Find system’ screen. If I select that I’m returned to the ‘We’ve found multiple Sonos systems. Let’s confirm the one you want to update.’ screen.It’s an endless loop. I then tried the ‘Find Missing Products’ option:I get this:Select ‘Continue’:Select ‘Contin
I have a Sonos S2 system with a few Ones and a Roam in it. We’re going on holiday soon and would like to take the Roam with us and put it on the holiday home’s wifi network.I’ve read other posts saying I can go to the general network settings and add multiple wifi networks which sounds exactly what I want.However, I’m just a little confused. If I take the Roam away from my own network, how do I connect to it so I can put the new wifi network in? Sorry I’ve seen a few questions on it - a lot about using multiple Sonos systems which isn’t what I’m after - but I’m obviously missing one small detail. I’m sure this must have been answered elsewhere.
My Sonos set up consists of a Play3, two Play1s and Boost. I just got the Roam as I wanted to group it with everything else. My wifi has 3 options; normal, 5g and meshMy existing Sonos all connects to normal and 5g. When setting up Roam it connected to the mesh. In the Sonos app I see either my existing devices (if I am connected to normal or 5g), or only the Roam (if connected to the mesh). At no point do I see all my devices and the Roam. This issue is preventing me from grouping the Roam with everything else (and that was the whole point in choosing the Roam). I cannot find a solution to this anywhere! Help please!
