Hi,Tonight my Sonos Move suddenly played Music very loudly in my kitchen (a bit after 3 AM CET, everbody sleeping). No neighbor using our wifi, no trace inside the app or alexa.1342612997 (diagnostics)Could you have a look into it?Many thanks in advance
After the latest update. My roam stopped charging, battery drained and no way of turning it on to reboot. Besides trashing or replacing what are my options to get this to work? I've tried numerous high speed type c cables and watts. I've tried rebooting by holding down the power button for 12secs. When I plug in the roam the orange light activates for about 5-7 secs and nothing else happens.
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 was playing on my Xbox when the arc suddenly made an extremely loud pop sound and then lost audio completely. The app wouldn’t let me adjust the volume and Alexa wake up didn’t emit its usual tone. I had to remove the power from the arc and reapply which resumed the audio. I’m concerned that one of the speakers in the arc may have been damaged when this happened. Has anyone had this issue?We have had no issues with the arc since purchasing it earlier this year.
I recently finally upgraded from S1 to S2, got rid of my Sonos Connect (Gen 1) and added a Sonos Roam. Ever since then, I’ve had a heck of a time with the S2 apps. Every time I start the app, whether it be Android, iPhone, or Windows Desktop, it will often fail in finding my system, or if it doesn’t fail, it will take about over 2 mins to finally find the system. I never had this with my S1, so I’m not sure why these apps are having a hard time finding my system. When it is found, then things are usually ok, until I stop using it and open the app again later on. I’ve cold rebooted each player, and reset my router many times. I can see all four Sonos speakers in my Router’s IP list and they are all on the same 2.4Ghz network. I can’t figure why it does this and it’s super annoying knowing that I can’t use my Sonos for a while after starting one of the apps. I have to hope that it will find the system and if not, keep relaunching it. I’ve even uninstalled and reinstalled the app
Keep dropping link to Spotify, speakers of older type won’t connect, but If grouped with newer speakers - move for instance - will work, but then drop the link again after varying playback times. excellent broadband connection, strong Wi-Fi, all systems up to date come on Sonos, do better! great speakers, awful software.
Hi everyone,Last week I got a Beam Gen 2 + Sub Gen 3 to replace my Beam Gen 1. So far everything's been running smoothly. Then today when I was listening to music with said setup while working a sudden hammering sound interrupted the music. The noise must have been at full volume despite the volume limit which I set to 40%. I jumped up from the couch and instantly pulled the plug. Music kept playing in the adjacent dining room on a pair of One/One SL for a bit before it stopped.I tried to find the problem online and only found this video. This is exactly what I experienced with my Beam as well. However, this video does not give a good idea of how loud this really was.Since I couldn't find a solution online, I called the support hotline. The lady on the phone told me, that such a problem has not come up yet. She asked me to replug the Beam and let some music play. After just a few minutes the noise interrupted the music again. So at least the support lady had some impression of it and I
Hello,Support diagnosis: 1215484432For months I have been trying to install an alarm with a "Radio soft music no stress" radio. I set it up correctly with a very specific alarm time. Unfortunately, it is always the SONOS ringtone that goes off and never the chosen radio.I can't get the SONOS ringtone to go off.How can I do this?Please tell me.P.S.: I'm going on holiday for two weeks so you have time to tell me.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version) Thanks
Have a brand new U8g and nothing else but Sonos Arc attached via HDMI eARC. S2 App shows checkmark for HDMI ARC connection, but the audio test fails. Both U8g and Sonos Arc firmwares are updated. Optical works, but I want sound with ATMOS via eARC.Also the U8g menu items for selecting ARC output are grayed out in the tv settings. Can only select tv speaker as output. It seems there may be bad CEC communication as I noticed if I disable CEC on U8g that the ARC output option can be selected, but it goes right back to grayed out after changing menus.Any ideas would be appreciated. Would a CEC Less adapter force the tv to be able to use ARC for audio out?
I’ve got two questions/issues after setting up my Sonos Beam (Gen 2). We can try to solve #1 first then work on #2 if that’s better than dealing with both at the same time.Soundbar: Sonos Beam (Gen 2) connected to TV with HDMI-ARCTV: TCL 55S405TV Box Remote: Xr11Updates: Both the Beam and the Sonos app are using the latest updates#1Both my TV remote and my TV box remote can control the Beam’s volume by adjusting the TV volume using an IR signal. But my TV box remote can also use RF and I’m wondering: Is there a way for the Beam to receive RF signals from the remote?#2The TV/Beam volume gets set to zero after streaming music from my phone to the Beam (using Airplay 2) instead of returning to the previously selected TV volume level. I have TV Autoplay selected ‘on’ in the Sonos app and this even happens if I stop streaming the music first then turn on the TV afterwards.
Good morning. I’ve tried everything I can think of to figure out how to get my sub to stop the occasional vibrating, screechy, hum sound. Mostly noticed with television, low volume levels. I put acoustic foam underneath thinking it has been shaking a wooden cabinet, but I don’t think that’s it. Any suggestions? Lot to spend for a sub that puts out an annoying sound.
I have sometimes a disconnect between my Sub and playbase. After some times, they reconnect.I am thinking putting a UTP cable between the Sub and Playbase, hoping that this will prevent disconnects.Any chance that this will help? Or is the stream between de Sub and Playbase “hard coded” as 5Ghz wireless?
Like the title says, over a year later I am still having a problem with my Sonos amp stopping the audio during commercials when listening to TuneIn. The amp will show that audio has stopped and I have to restart the stream. This will happen every couple of hours through the day. It only happens when the audio trys to return from the commercials.If there is a Sonos support person, the diagnostic report is 475660968All of my Sonos hardware is hardwired and plugged into a switch Sonos Radio stations will play all day perfectly. There is no problem with any of my network cables All wireless is turned off as I will only ever use this product hardwired. Phone control is through strong wifi in my house, but that is really irrelevant since once the amp starts playing the audio the phone has no relation anymore I have two Sonos ports as well that will NEVER drop the audio stream. When they are grouped and the audio drops on the amp, they will automatically ungroup in the background.
Hi, I have 2 Play 5 Gen 1s running on the S1 app but my profile on Sonos.com only shows the equipment i have on the S2 app. How do i find out if the old Play 5s have an upgrade % off? Both have been upgraded to the latest firmware and are running on the same Network, just on different Apps
Hello All, I have a Sonos setup in my home with a Play5, 3 Sonos One, and a Sonos Port connected to powered monitors. I have successfully run with no issues for years on my Netgear Orbi Mesh.Since the last Sonos update, each speaker drops connection randomly every day or so. The only way to recover is to power down and reboot the device. I show no issues in the network or router, have done packet tracing etc (Im an engineer) and there is no anomaly in any other device on the network (PCs, TVs, cell phones, etc). Even though it was a waste of time, I reset and re-setup all devices on the network, but the problem persists ONLY with the Sonos devices and the Sonos app. Anyone else seeing similar issues?
I have been having issues with playing Audible on my Sonos Roam via Alexa. I use the command “Alexa, play Audible” but after 3-4 minutes the audiobook will stop. On the Sonos app I get the following message: “Unable to play <Audiobook Chapter> - the song is not encoded properly.” Sometimes Audible will skip ahead 2 chapters after the message, but mostly the audiobook stops completely.This issue only happens if I play Audible via an Alexa command. There are no issues as far as I can tell with other services (eg Spotify, iHeartRadio, etc) or playing Audible through my phone.Below are the following solutions I’ve tried and their respective diagnostic confirmation numbers after the issue reoccurred:Completely reset the speaker - 1687113073 and 1909624914Switched speaker to a 2.4 Wi-Fi network - 1319891684Reset my Wi-Fi router - 267135584
For years my Sonos setup has been pulling music from a QNAP NAS device. The QNAP recently wore out and I replaced it with a Synology device. Sonos is having some trouble with it.I go to the Sonos controller settings, type in the path to the shared NAS folder, and Sonos begins indexing. It seems to be indexing for five or ten minutes, and then it errors out saying the folder is no longer available (screenshot below.) It’s done that four times now.Near as I can tell the NAS device is doing just fine. I can, for example, reliably browse to the shared folder in the Windows File Explorer. But Sonos keeps deciding the connection has dropped. What’s causing that? ---- DETAILS -----I am running the Sonos controller version 14.8 on Windows 10Sonos OS: S2My main Sonos device is a Connect (hardware version 22.214.171.124-1.1; series ID D100)The music files are located on a Synology DS220+ NAS device.The NAS is sharing, I believe, with SMB. It supports SMB 2 and 3.And this is the specific error I keep g
HDFury VRROOM arrived and hope as it is a switch with ARCANA functionality would allow me to us my Arc with both TV (Samsung with ARC) and projector. Not sound comes out and if l try to set up it give CEC error. Sonos Arc has been set up and works with TV. So can’t be the CEC issue on p29/30 of ARCANA manual.
Diagnostic code 906861728Getting really sick of this issue. SiriusXM channels play for 15 seconds and then error out. Today’s message is Unable to play - it is encoded using an unsupported digital rights management system. 15 Sonos speakers in my house..thousands of dollars...and I can’t play music.
