I searched around, and googled the error messages I have, but to no avail. Perhaps as this is an older device, the answers are harder to find. Anyway, see if anyone can help…
I loaned my Play:1 to a friend, which they never used, but now I have it back, it's failing to link to my account.
I did a hardware reset in the end. Still setup failed suggesting I use ethernet instead. So switched to ethernet, it finds the speaker, does its chime "PIN" okay, but then at "Linking your Play:1 to your account", it fails "There was a problem linking your Play:1 to your account", no reason or details given for fail.
So ultimately I have "Your Play:1 (Den) has been added. Audio playback will be available once this product is updated and linked to your account", and the Play:1 is shown in System/Products as "Not registered".
I tried online support, but the bot just wasted my time and couldn’t connect me to anyone.
Online at sonos.com, my Sonos account shows the Play:1 as registered, *with today’s date*.
So far it's given me no opportunity to set up wi-fi.
With the ethernet attached, the Play:1 is at 192.168.1.74, and http://192.168.1.74:1400/support/review shows this (and only this, no links on the page) (btw: if it’s got an http interface, can I not just set up everything manually at some other url?):
