I have two Sonos Plays and a Roam. I can group the Sonos plays together, but not the Roam. All are visible in my system and selectable in the Grouping option, but when I try to save the group (either with all devices together or just the Roam), I receive the following error: “Unable to save group. Try again later”. I have tried later, much later, and much much later to no avail.
Hoping this will help some others overcome this funky software.I set up a pair of Roam devices on network A.I then needed to change them to network B.I hard reset both Roam devices and connected them successfully to network B.Less than 30s later, they disconnected from network B and reconnected themselves to network A.Solution:go to System > Network > Manage Networks > click network A > Remove restart your phone (to make sure Sonos app is not running!) reset your device follow the procedure to add a new device and you should be good to go
Hello,Do you know if it is possible to connect a Sonos Move with it? :> A Bluetooth turntable (brand: MARLEY)> Pair with a Sonos Play:5 (2nd generation) Are there any constraints? Thank you, Moderator edit: changed Five gen 1 to Play:5 gen 2 for accuracy
I have a Sonos Move. It seems sick! The top touch controls don't work, and the Bluetooth wireless button doesn't work. It says it's charged the lights flash white, and I get an ora ge which turns to green but I can't turn on Bluetooth to reconnect to the system. Then after a while I get a red light. Nothing changed on my system, location, router etc.... this seems to have come out of the blue!!!Can anybody help?? Please
My Sonos MOVE has been connected to my network for 3years… then all of a sudden (for whatever reason) last week it disappears from my network. I have SEVERAL Sonos products and each of them have all been (and are still) connected w/no issues. I’ll add that I’m able to Bluetooth to the device just perfectly fine.Going thru the setup - Sonos app sees the MOVE, goes thru the motions as if it’s going to add it back to the network only to end in an error of “There was a problem connecting your Sonos Move”.I’ve completed all of the recommended troubleshooting steps of unplugging my router, etc… and I’m stuck in this loop of ultimately ending back at the same error msg.Attempts at a factory reset have not gotten me back to a flashing green light. Am open to suggestions at this point.Thanks!
There are different types of Bluetooth codec supported by different devices.In layman’s term and as far as you may be concerned, Bluetooth codec has to do with audio-delay (lip-sync latency).In case you ever want to know if your Sonos Move is compatible with another device in terms of Bluetooth codec, then you should know it is SBC codec. SBC codec maybe the codec with the highest audio-delay. A tip that I can share with you to minimize this delay is to use a Bluetooth transmitter that is connected via optical cable.
When I purchased my first sonos products they were considered “state-of-the-art” stuff. But they seem to have stopped developing and improving. Sonos is not even mentioned in this Engadget article. Maybe they could give us the ability to use headphones with the system.https://www.engadget.com/best-portable-bluetooth-speakers-133004551.html
My Move, out of nowhere, started playing these mixed voices, like a records playing backwords. My wife was so creeped out, she wants to throw every Sonos we have in the whole house in the trash and might them on fire. It is super creepy. Seriously. WTF is going on. She paused it, then unpaused to make the video, but these sounds started in the bathroom while we were watching TV in the bedroom. Here is a YouTube short I made of it, cause I can't post a video here, only pictures. https://youtube.com/shorts/OJ-869INwEs?feature=share
HelloI have a problem with my roamWhen i turn it on and press play it connects to the last radio station, so it usese the wifi but when i try to access the setings from the sonos app it just sees it ppwer off.What can i do pls?Already tryed the 12 swconds reset and did nothing.
I have a non-functioning Roam. When placed on charging base, or charged by USB, there is a solid orange light for 10-15 seconds which then disappears.I’ve tried the holding of the power button for 15 seconds thing a number of times, on and off the USB and the charging base.The Sonos app recognises its disappeared but can’t find it again. No tones indicating being turned off or on again have been apparent. Rest of system functional. I can’t be certain, but it may have been left off the stand long enough to drain the battery. I’ve left it for long periods on the charging base, and also by USB-C. No joy!
Hello Everyone,I recently went on an extended work trip and wanted to bring my roam to listen to in the hotel. The bluetooth worked at first but after a week or so, it acts as though it has been completely forgotten by my home system and I can no longer use the bluetooth because it is acting like it has never been set up before.I tried making a local network on my laptop with the same WIFI network name and password as my home system but the app then wants me to reconfigure all of my devices to the new local WIFI network I made which obviously can’t happen since I am not at home.Additionally, I have tried adding the roam to the local network but when sonos checks for updates to the app, it gives me an Error 1001.Any help will be appreciated as I will not be home for at least 2 months and would like to have a decent speaker to listen to. Thank you!-Jake
I have an all Wi-Fi setup for my TV and want to connect the same setup temporarily to my projector but It only has one HDMI port and doesn’t have AirPlay audio support, however it does have Bluetooth support.So therefore my question is;Will adding a Sonos Roam to the setup allow me to make my current setup work with my TV as normal whilst also adding the option of Bluetooth connectivity to my projector?
My Sonos Roam has severe configuration issues. When it shuts down, not standby, and I wait for couple hours, it is back in factory defaults, green LED and needs to be linked again.This happened before occasionaly once a month, now it happens daily. I have good wifi coverage, client steering disabled, and IP address fixed. Nothing helps.The most anoying point is that almost every time I want to use bluetooth it has lost the config snd I must go back to the home network to couple again. Total useless device when on vacation.Is there a way I can avoid losing the config or is it just broken?Cheers
We have sonos one at our home. We also have sonos one and a move at out lake house which is about an hour away.Both systems are connected to wifi. The wifi names and passwords are the same at both houses, but are two different networks.While at our home, the move at the lake has been randomly connecting. I can see it connected on the spotify app, but there is no option to turn it off in the sonos app - I can only see the sonos speakers available at our home. I turn it off through the spotify app, but it constantly reconnects.I know the music is turning on and off through the move at the lake house because our cameras are catching it. How can I turn off the move from our house?Thanks!
Moved to a new WiFi Router, and my Sonos Roam won’t play nice with it. I’ve tried to set it up about four times, each time cycling through the setup/troubleshooting options (Make sure the network matches my device, check the password, reboot the Roam, reboot the router, etc.), and occasionally rebooting my device (iPhone), and it’s still not working. The Wifi comes with 2.4Ghz and 5Ghzs options - The Roam only sees the latter, and even when my device’s WiFi settings are is switched to that one, it’s still not having it. I’m very tired - Any help is appreciated!!
Hoping to get some clarity from the community on how painful this is supposed to be…I am travelling with a couple of Sonos Roam between my home and various office locations. I’m one of few very oddball people that like STEREO, you see. And I understand that the roam is intended as a Bluetooth MONO system when roaming, but since I am a difficult customer I tend to hook them up using the Wi-Fi network to get STEREO. Like we have had since the 1930s. So far, this has required a factory reset of the speakers EVERY TIME to connect to a new Wi-Fi network. Today I contacted support and asked how to do this without factory reset, and was told that this was not possible, I needed to factory reset. Pain. The experience at every location so so far has been, step by step:Start Sonos app, it finds the system missing and select the change network option. Attempting to find the system fails with “Sonos not found”. Surprising, since it's already connected via bluetooth, but apparently it's incapa
Hi,I bought the Sonos Roam SL recently, and use it with bluetooth. But every 2/3 songs, like 6/7 minutes, the music suddenly stop playing for like a second, then restarts. And it repeats every time, it’s not a random non reproductible issue.I’ve already resetted it, my app and my software is up to date.Can you help me ? Thanks a lot
Sorry if this has been asked before and I missed it in my search I tried connecting my ROAM SL to charge through my PC computer USB4 port.I am getting the “not charging properly” notificationI understand that USB4 supports well over the specified 10W Does the ROAM SL support USB Power Delivery (USB4 PD)? Thanks to anyone who has tried and had success? S
Hi, I’m having a very strange issue with my Sonos move. The speaker will be working just fine and then out of the blue it appears to be no longer part of my system. It has never removed itself while it was playing, but one time the battery died,when I put it back on the charge my app asked me if I wanted to “add move” to my system. As if it was brand new. This also happens when I don’t use my Sonos system for a few days. I go to play music and the Move is the only speaker that is not playing and the app sees it as new again and wants me to add it. The second part of the problem comes in when I try to add it back to the system. The speaker plays it’s chime and the phone hears it but when I press the join button, nothing happens. I’ve tried multiple times. The only way to get the speaker to rejoin my network and app is to do a factory reset. After this, I can join it up and use it for a few days. This has happened 3 or 4 times now and is VERY annoying. Please help.
