Hello, just wondering if it’s common to have to reset my roam speakers in order to get the charging dock to work? Mind you it has only happened once and probably never again (hoping). I just added a Sonos white charging dock/pad/magnetic flat thing with a cable to my white roam. The black roam had its dock from the beginning and no problems at all but both roams and chargers decided to just come to the conclusion to stop charging from the dock. USB C charging worked fine. so my first instinct was to come here and complain that my stuff is broken I need to return blah blah blah. ok white roam still won’t charge with the dock, it’ll light up orange and then fade away, the app shows a quick charge and then not charging, USB c still works. Diagnostic number 760738273Black one also quit charging from the dock too lol, both are now USB C connected
I have an old play 5 1st gen which I have now put on a separate s1 systems - tick - job done. dead easy to set up.1 have a beam and two 1 sl’s in my bar which are now on the S2 systems - tick job done - dead easy to set up. I have been given a Roam for my birthday - hurrah!?? No… not hurrah. can i connect the roam? no!!! i need to change my sky router settings - I have sky-q as well. I - like most - are not proficient in the way of IT and the mere thought of twiddling with the internet settings leaves me cold... And quiet frankly - for an off the shelf consumer product you should not need to delve into the wizardry and witchcraft of the IT specialist. I did however delves into the dark arts - If i try and separate the 2.45ghz and the 5 ghz sync as requested then the rest of the tinterweb is up and down like a yo-yo. the rest of the ‘try this’ pointers I could not even fathom so left them as they were. I put it back the way it was and closed the coffin lid - never going there again. So
I bought the Roam the other day. After a nightmare setting it up with the app and a few hours on the live chat with customer services, it worked through the app for the first day and even paired happily with my beam, but has since been ‘offline’ on the Sonos app. It’s been off and on and I’ve restarted our WiFi router. I’ve been able to play music through it directly through Spotify on AirPlay, but no joy connecting it again to the beam via the app. This means I can’t see what the battery is doing and how much charge I have at any point. Sometimes it randomly changes its own volume to quite loud while sat in the same spot and I have to turn it down. I haven’t had any problems with my beam. Is this a faulty Sonos product? We mostly plan to use it around the house and garden. Should I return it and switch to a Sonos One, which was our other option?
As I understand two Sonos Roam can be setup as stereo pair through WiFi. In my case I have no home WiFi, only smartphone hotspot that I use all the time for all my home devices. Is it possible to set up a stereo pair this way? Will there be limitations?And what if I use two Sonos One in stereo pair? Do they behave the same?The stereo pair will be playing music mainly from my desktop, and occasionally from my phone. Thanks in advance.
Finally got my Roam. Really disappointing. Charged it for four hours. Tried every adapter in my house. Finally to got 100%. Played for four minutes then turned off. Flashing red light. Left to charge again overnight. Turned on for ten minutes then turned off. App is saying 100% but won’t play. When operational, also dropped off my system every two minutes and need to be reconnected. Oh dear. Think I’ll need a replacement. And if that’s no better, refund. any thoughts? thanks!
I have a beam and 2 sonos 1’s linked together in my apartment. I bought the roam for trips and the beach etc. and just want it in my closet when I’m not using it. Problem is whenever I tell my Sonos Beam to play music on my devices it automatically turns on my roam. This is real annoying. Any thoughts or solutions to this?
My wife gave me this for Fathers day. I was excited to get it connect to my Sonos system.. I quickly learned that it will not work with the Sonos s1 controller. Well here is the problem I have A lot of money in speakers and amps, None of them are compatible with the new controller including the black amp and the Move. Looking at the compatible list very little of the equipment will move over to the new controller. And it seem that the new equipment will not work with the old. This leaves me in a predicament, I cannot setup the Roam to work with my other home equipment, I have to setup the speaker with the Gold controller. NOTE - you cannot setup Bluetooth until the speaker is registered with a controller….That was not an east task when the gold controller kept trying to upgrade my home system. Finally got it and i have 1 speaker on the gold controller , once connected i could setup Bluetooth. I closed the gold controller and reopened and the system defaulted to trying to upgrade my sy
hello,I just added a sonos move to my system last week. it was working fine until today when it went offline (showing as offline in the app) and i can’t get it back online (even with reboot or find missing product). I am on an Eero pro 6 tri-band mesh here and the house, and i can see the Move connected to the downstairs Eero in the Eero app and active.Pressing the play button on the Move sometimes starts playing a podcast, but it’s not controllable from app as showing offline despite showing online in the eero app. It’s become totally useless. should I return ?Diagnostic - 123101796ISP : XfinityRouter : eero Pro 6Thank you
Just bought a roam yesterday. I’m having issues with the Wi-Fi not connecting and the device not being recognized by my phone app. I literally have to reset my router anytime I wanna use it… Also, as an aside, the power button sucks and it sucks that it’s combined with the Bluetooth pairing. Think I might return the device.
Hi,I recently got a roam to add to my sonos collection. I was able to easily connect it yesterday. I shut it off after I was done. Now when I turn it back on it won’t reconnect to my sonos app (android 12 beta, pixel 4xl). I can connect it to my phone via bluetooth and it works, however. I have a mesh network with tp link deco. Thanks!
My new Roam wants to connect through a pop up in the Sonos App and I can’t find a way (having reset twice so far) to get the Roam connected to Sonos Boost and not the general home wifi. It will only show in the Sonos System Info in the About My System as WM 1 while all other products are WM 0. It will be frustrating if the Roam cannot benefit from the Boost while at home and therefore suffers the very same problems that caused me to get the Boost in the first place.
My Sonos Move would not connect to my computer via Bluetooth. It worked previously. So I deleted the instance and tried to re-add without success. I would press the join button, Sonos Move would appear in my device list, I select, then I get error, “Unable to Connect”. So I moved to my Wi-Fi, no issues. So I thought my computer’s Bluetooth dongle was bad. I went to connect to my phone and that’s when I found the problem. Sonos Move was already connected to my phone. I disconnected from my phone, pressed the join button, and my PC connected to the Sonos Move again. Even though the Sonos Move stores up to six devices, it automatically connects to the first device it discovers. I have a Bose Soundlink and it immediately announces which Bluetooth device I’m connected to. Is there a way for the Sonos Move to tell me which Bluetooth device it’s connected to? If not, is there a way to put in a features request?
Hi all, picked up a Roam the other day (also have an Arc on backorder). These are my first Sonos products. I've connected the Roam successfully through both my iPhone and iPad, and it's working as it should using these devices. Unfortunately I can't connect via my iMac. I get the message:"Not Connected. Your Sonos product was not found. If your product is a long way from your router, your may need to try moving it closer...."I've spent about an hour on the phone with Sonos support. We tried multiple procedures (rebooting, verifying wifi networks, re-installing the app, etc.), and seemingly last on the list was updating my OSX. I'm currently using 10.14.6. The thing is, it's an older machine (2017) and I'm just not prepared to update to the latest OSX out of fear that it will cause a major disruption in my personal and professional life.Hoping someone reading this might have some help. I need to connect via my Mac because I do not use any music streaming sites, and I want to link my iTu
I have a Pixel 3XL and a new Sonos Roam (among some other Sonos products). I am unable to bluetooth pair my Pixel with the Roam. I’ve been able to pair the Roam to my wife’s Pixel 4a, and my son’s android tablet. I’ve been able to pair another speaker to my Pixel. I don’t know what the problem is. I go through the simple steps, and see Sonos Roam (SONOS 3EC8) on the list. When I attempt to pair, it goes gray for a few seconds and then back to white, like it never happened. Is there a way to solve this?
Hi, I have recently purchased a Sonos Roam primarily to use while in the garden. I have set the Roam up in the kitchen (WiFi) and it is connected to a Sonos One (WiFi in the living room) ) a Sonos SL (Ethernet in the TV Room). Generally when playing in these locations the performance is fine, occasional buffering🥴. My problem starts when I attempt to move the roam into the garden, expecting it to pick up the Belkin WiFi extender. Initially it works ( it is within WiFi range (confirmed through WiFi checked on iPhone) however it then stops. I have read on various forums that this is now a common problem. What is being done to correct this “NOT SO ROAM…..ABLE DEVICE.”
If you have an old S1 system and want the Roam set up as a separate system on S2, you need to swithc off all your product, while you set up a separate system, or you can’t setup your new Roam.After setting up a new system in S2 app, your can switch your old products on again and access them in your old S1 app.After setting up the Roam via network, you can switch on the bluetooth system.Only that way you can get your Roam to work,It took me a while to get it to work, but now it works fine.SONOS please let your customers know this fix, or you’ll get unsatisfied customers.
Sonos seems to be getting more complicated everyday: It used to be so easy.I have 2 room speakers set up perfectly and I added a move with a boost.Everything worked fine then it went down when someone unplugged the router…Re-plugged the router and the rooms came back but I had to reset the move, it came back on and played music for 30 seconds then ‘offline’… this has happened 6 times and I can’t get it to continue.On the app it shows the music playing via the little ‘bars’ but nothing from the speaker after 10-30 seconds… it works for a second then goes offline???What do you suggest?
Hi, I have recently purchased 2 Roams for stereo sound on my terrace and I am seeing some issues with one of them - it’s constantly disconnecting when the WiFi network is changed. I’ll explain my setup and I mention I tried resetting both devices to factory settings and adding all WiFi networks to the list - It looks to me like there’s an issue with that particular Roam, because the other one doesn’t experience any of these issues. Here’s my setup: I have an apartment and a terrace at the next floor, where I get to via stairs. To make WiFi work reliably everywhere, I have a router in the apartment and a powerline extender via the electric grid on the terrace - the SSID is the same for both, they are linked via OneMesh, so when signal fluctuates, the WiFi doesn’t drop on my mobile device and it’s rebalanced. When I run internet speed tests, I get 600 Mb/s in the apartment and 110 Mb/s on the terrace. I use 2 separate SSIDs, one for 2.4 GHz and one for 5 GHz, but I am always connected t
Hi, my Roam has been working fine for the past few days, but I cannot seem to turn it on anymore. I’m using an Apple 20W USB-C charging brick to charge, but all that seems to happen is when I plug it in, the orange light glows for 10 seconds and then it fades away. Following the reset process doesn’t seem to do anything either. Any ideas as to what my problem might be?
Hi, all, When connecting the Roam to a laptop or android phone via Bluetooth, the music makes small pauses every few seconds. I've also tried playing YouTube music on the phone and playing it via Bluetooth to the Roam and than connecting it to the Beam via WiFi, and the music still makes this small pauses. I've tried forgeting the divice on the laptop, reseting the Roam and the problem still continues. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
