I have recreated this closed topic as I have exactly the same issue as was so clearly described by other users.Audible intermittently stops after playing for a few minutes. “Alexa resume” restarts it usually a minute or two before it stopped. Alexa work fine otherwise and audible on other devices works fine. Its just the combination of Audible and Alexa on my Roam that has the problem.Definitely not WiFi issueSonos - Please investigate this which is clearly a bug of some sort
I have a pair of Sonos Roams I have set up in my home.These are plugged in by default and I intend to use them stationary. As such I don't want them to sleep or enter standby when not in use. Both speakers have very good wifi signal, on channel 11, both have static IPs assigned to them and they are not close to any obstacle or in proximity to a wifi splitter or wifi extender.The channels used by the speakers are also not in conflict with any other signals in or outside my home. Very frequently I will find that one of the two is not available on the Sonos app, google voice assistant will inform me there's no wifi and a quick reset will have them up and running again. I was hoping to avoid this frequent daily reset can I do anything on my end to get this issue solved? Here are a few screenshots taken before and after resting. Can I provide any diagnostics info?
Hi all, let me quickly explain. I use an MacMini M1 and installed Apple Music to stream to my 2 SONOS Move’s. The speakers show up on Apple Music as expected but I am not able to get any sound out of them. The connection is getting dropped. (all devices are on the same network)If I restart the Mac, it works from beginning without any issue but in case I leave the desk vor 20 minutes and stopped the music before, the same issues as mentioned before occurs. No sound. After a quick restart it works again.No idea what I can do about that.
It’s like I have two alpha speakers - 5 (Kitchen) and Roam (Bathroom).Trying to group one with the other each way results in a group with no sound on the “grouped” speaker. When I group either or both from a pair of 1s (Living Room), a single 1 (Office), or a Playbase (Bedroom), I have no issue with audio in the pairing. When I pair either 5 (Kitchen) or Roam (Bathroom) from these three compliant speakers there’s no issue.Not sure when this started but I’m blaming the Lo Pocos Hermanos man since I activated Sonos Voice recently. Any ideas?
I have very similar sentiment as this post; however, the post was not able to be commented on so that is weird. I was really excited to receive the roam to extend my music to the other rooms - but am as much more disappointed of its functionality. It doesn’t keep the charging - turns on and off without instruction and is hard to get connected when needed. Quite annoying and demotivating for such an investment - knowing there are other and cheaper loudspeaker systems. As much as I am impressed by the beam the roam is a flop ... https://en.community.sonos.com/wireless-speakers-228992/roam-6858306I was on the waitlist to get my Roam when they were first released and was really excited when it came; but since then I have had so many frustrations with it. All other gripes aside (i.e. not being compatible with my wireless charger, the battery constantly dying even when I turn it off, sometimes turns on without instruction or connection) my biggest complaint is 1) How difficult my Roam is to
I’m a bit frustrated once again with Sonos. The setting up process for nearly every device is completely annoying. Well, the Sonos “ROAM” is the worst one yet. I bought this product for nearly $200 on the road hoping to have great sound while in my hotel room… which will be another two weeks. Got back to the hotel and come to find I CAN’T use this Bluetooth out the box. Sonos wants you to hook it up to your “private” network AT HOME. I’m not at home. I SHOULD be able to use this out of the box with blue tooth connection. It a total scam to advertise the way you do. The box should say - “can be bluetooth once connected to your home network”. I then would have saved my money.This type of run around is SO unnecessary. I’m once again SUPER frustrated at the companies policy to use what I should clearly own. The reality is, I don’t own this product until I connect back home 2,000 miles away. Any help here?
Do you need wifi to connect phone to roam via Bluetooth? I won a Sonos speaker but I don't have wifi at home. I can't get roam to enter Bluetooth mode. I can't set up the app because I don't have wifi. Does this mean you couldn't use the speaker if you are away from wifi, like out on a boat or camping?
So I have a Beam, stereo pair One SLs with sub, Five, and a Roam. All in separate rooms. I have always used Airplay 2 via my Macbook using Apple music to send to my speakers. By swiping all the buttons on most of the speakers I can control the Airplay skipping tracks. I can also use the new Sonos Voice control to say “Hey Sonos, Skip” I also can pause or restart the music from the buttons. Airplay still works just fine. Sending to all the speakers. I can group and everything. Suddenly, I cannot control skip at all from my speakers. When I slide over all three buttons it gives the prompt sounds as though it skips, but it does not change tracks. When I say “Hey Sonos, skip” it gives me the sound effect prompt as though it skipped, but does NOT skip. The odd thing is that everything else works. I can ask “What song is playing?” And it will correctly tell me. The album art pops up on the app and everything works to lower volume. But I cannot skip. It does not allow me to skip
Was given this Roam as a birthday present. Was super difficult to set up- spent hours trying to get it to connect and would make me start the whole installation and connect to devices at least four times. It was very frustrating. Finally got it to work pretty well most of the time. Now, six months later (and very light use) there is a red light flashing and my phone cannot connect to my Sonos Roam. Tried powering it down, uninstalling the app, reinstalling, nothing. I tried letting the battery go dead and recharging it in the hopes It might reset, but it flashes blue at first, makes a pleasant chime sound, then flashes red. i love the sound of this, but it seems like it is way more trouble than my cheap five year old mini Jambox that still works! Any suggestions?
There is still an issue with Move Stereo PairsSpeakers paired and Battery Saver is OFF.1st IssueSpeakers left idle for a few hours off their charging base will shut down as if battery saver mode is on. They require a power button press to be active again.2nd IssueOnce the speakers start up there is no sound from the left hand channel. It shows as working in the app but sliding the balance has no effect and it is silent. No amount of powering on and off will help.Work around temp fixUnpair and repair the speakers resumes normal functioning. The Moves should NOT power down if the Battery Saver mode is off surely? I was busy getting sound back and forgot to do a diagnostic but will do one later if the problem appears again, which it may.In the meantime I will do a hard reset and re-add and pair to my system.
My Sonos Move has stopped working. It appears on the app as requiring an update, but I get error code 888 and 1002 when I try to update. The only light that displays is the power light. I have tried to factory reset, I've held the infinity button for 3 minutes to get some form of response, but nothing. Even turning it off requires holding the power button for longer than 30 seconds. When I turn it back on, I get the amber light on the front momentarily. It's been on the charger cable whole we were away for 3 weeks. Could it be the battery needs replacing, and how do I do that. I've tried everything in the support suggestions.
I currently have an Arc and Sub 3 together as I system. I know it will not do surround sound but I have a pair of Move’s coming. I think this will be a good little casual listening system for my upstairs. My question is how do I add the two new Move’s? I believe that I add each one as a different room and then I pair the two Moves. I also was wondering about syncronizing volume between the three parts of the system, Sub, Arc and Moves. Is this at all automated so that they are balanced with one another or do I just adjust each volume independently by ear until I have the balance to my liking? Thanks very much for your help. Cheers.
I have a Sonos Roam that I am attempting to connect to a Project Audio BT turntable. The first time I used it, everything worked perfectly. But now whenever I try to enter BT pairing mode it will connect for a second or two before disconnecting again. I can pair the turntable with other speakers successfully, and I can pair other devices with the Roam, but the two no longer play together properly.I have already tried numerous factory resets but to no avail. Anyone run into anything like this before?
Its pretty strange, I am using a Mac Mini M1 with the latest OS and updates. My 2 SONOS Move have the latest updates as well but as soon as I use Apple Music, the connection to Sonos gets lost after 5 seconds and there is no sound at all. Once I restart the Mac, everything works fine but if I go away from the computer and try it again after 30 minutes, I again cant connect anymore. If I restart, everything works fine.Any idea what causes this strange behaviour?
I was hoping that there would be a fix to the Move issues that 14.6 introduced mid April. But no! I was using the Moves in a Stereo pair off their base yesterday. They played fine and were left of their baes overnight. Charge this morning was at 39%. I started playing music and sometimes it showed playing but no sound then the Right hand speaker would play but I could not stop it. Eventually the stop command worked but the LH speaker is still not playing music. Other functions work on that speaker, such as being able to turn off the status light but it will not play any sound. It is a risky business trying the speakers as I foolishly upped the volume and then the stop command would not work, nor would the on device stop button. Luckily it eventually worked but this is not good. I have placed both on their charging base and will see if there is a change when i get home later today. I have submitted two diagnostics, but left my phone at home. Will add them later. I am assuming th
My Sonos move suddenly stopped playing back music, or plays intermittently. Whether playing directly to the move or in a group - example, I create a group with other wired and wireless devices… it shows the music playing on the Move along with the other zones, but there’s no music coming out of it. The other speakers/systems are playing fine. Nothing has changed with my network, the Move is in the same spot (even tried moving it closer to the router)… one test today - I started a song in a group with the Move and two other devices. The other devices started playing, the Move did not. 2 minutes into the song, the Move started playing the same song but from the beginning (so it was way out of sync), played for about a minute then stopped. Now won’t play. I’ve tried resetting the Move already.I’ve had two chats with support already, no resolution - just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
I currently have updated to the latest Sonos App and run the update for the Sonos Roam.I am following the factory steps to add to the system and currently have a Sonos Roam in the system but for whatever reason I am able to add the Sonos Roam. It tells me to power down the roam and restart. Upon restart the Sonos Roam shows as offline in the app even after several restarts. I tried factory reset and to re-add a couple times and still no progress.
Hi everyone. I am facing a problem lately with my sonos system although I didn’t have such an issue before.I have sonos five, move and roam. The last few weeks I encounter the below.When offline, Move and Roam do not appear as ‘offline’ in the app as it was the case in the past. Most importantly, for both Move and Roam (less frequent Five) I get a message ‘unable to connect to device. try again later’ when i am trying to start the speakers playing. A similar message i get when i am trying to connect/group the speakers to the Five when the latter is functioning. In some cases when the problems of point 2 above apply, in the app it is seen that the speakers ‘are playing’ (the bars on the right of the speaker window under ‘system’ are moving, however the speaker does not play actually).I tried with rebooting my router and re-install the sonos app. However the problems remain.Could you please help, or advise?
Since about May, the alarm on the Move has stopped working correctly. I keep it in the hall on the charging station, and at night I take it into the bedroom, where I leave it as an alarm clock, while the charging station stays in the hall. Up until May everything was fine, the alarm in the bedroom in the morning worked fine. But since May the problems started. The device turns on, but nothing plays. The Sonos app (S2, iOS ver 14.8.1) shows that it is playing, but the unit is silent. To start playing after that I might have to reboot the Move. It is important to note that the network configuration and network equipment had not been changed. What I did: I completely reset Move, reinstalled the application and reset the modem. But nothing helped. Who has encountered this and what can be done?The version of hardware: 126.96.36.199-2.2
I have a Play 5: Gen 1 and two Play 1’s. Just bought two Roams which are set up on the S2 app. S2 app doesn’t find any other speakers on system. S1 app finds the Play 5 fine but says the Play 1s are incompatible. When I attempt to “fix” the incompatibility the app says to download S1???The three speakers were working fine on the S1 app before I downloaded S2.
