I see this problem has been reported for over a year and no fixes still. I can’t even listen to Atmos music on my appletv or use it to play atmos movies because of the super loud pop and shutdown. This has been a know issue since back in 2021. I read no fixes at all on the forum. Just tried to listen to a new Atmos Remastered album and it sounded like my Arc blow up then shut down. On top of that I’ve never heard a single sound come out of the top firing speakers on it using atmos on any other app that plays atmos. At this point I’m unsure if the Arc even plays atmos content at all.
Over the past two months the sound has stopped working on our ARC SL home theater. After checking out my LG display and Apple TV 4k each time the solution happened to be Sonos updates. Sometimes its firmware, sometimes its a controller issue. In each case we found that doing the update brought the sound back. We have three iPhones and an iMac with controller software, though we never use them. Every time the sound quits, I now have to walk around the house checking devices to see which one needs the update. With out previous Playbar HT as well as the ARC SL HT, I recall being able to go several full versions of controller software before anything would go wrong with our systems and now we can’t skip even a minor point release release. Once the system was set up and working perfectly, there’s no need to update the software at all. So why the forced update gimmick?
Since about 5 days ago I can’t stream Apple Music or even browse my AM library through my Sonos system. I’ve tried deleting my account via the Sonos app and reauthorizing my AM account, that didn’t help. AM results will appear in the Search screen but when I try to play them I get “unable to add songs to queue,” and when I try to browse my AM library I get the error shown in the attached screenshot. All other sources work, including Spotify and local Sonos library. I am also able to stream AM to Sonos via AirPlay. Is there a known issue with Sonos directly connecting to AM at the moment?
A continuation of this thread. Now, even when I manually update, it won’t play music. The controller shows all albums and songs, and also album art - so clearly it’s pushing/pulling info to and from wherever. But it tells me it’s “Unable to connect” to the server address.Every device on the network - Windows and Android - can connect to the device where the Library is stored. Sonos says it is able to add the Library at that address (and again, it sees songs and artwork).I’m so, so tired.
Hi there, My Sonos Beam is lowering the volume automatically just after I turned it up. It lowers the volume to the same value (15) again and again. It does not matter if I control the volume on the beam itself or via different apps (sonos app, spotify android or macOS, tv remote). I already tried unplugging the device, wait and rebot but to no avail. The light on top of the beam is also blinking white and red. I have not touched or moved the beam or cables in ages. Diagnostic report:199665785Hope you guys can help me out here.
I own a yoga studio and have 6 Play 3’s, a Connect, and a Boost. The issue I have is very specific and I am not sure how to resolve it. Inernet speeds are in excess of 350MB consistently. What happens is that when you play a song, the next song in the queue will play just fine, but the following or 3rd song will not play, and I will get a message that says “connection to Spotify was lost” then switches tracks to the 4th song. In a studio where the next song being in sync is very important this is a big issue that comes and goes. Anyone heard of this?I have tried deleting everything then reassigning it all back, this works for a short period then back we are back to this. I have tried resetting both the router and modem to no avail. For a studio this is a difficult problem but one that is so specific that there must be a solution to this, any ideas? Best!
I have the Sonos Arc and have my Amazon Music (Unlimited) and Pandora accounts connected. In my Amazon Music app settings, I am using the default Loudness Normalization. That’s supposed to “play all songs at the same loudness level.” However, that is not at all happening. One song will play at a good volume, then the next song will be extremely loud. It doesn’t seem to matter whether the song is HD, Ultra HD or Atmos. How to remedy this so that they play at one level on the Arc?
Yesterday morning I was unable to listen to a BBC Sounds service: the message was “Unable to play 6 music: the song is not encoded correctly”. I’m on S1: after a day of fiddling about, rebooting everything, router, switches and all devices, it seems that, after a few tries, my S2 compatible devices are happy to play but my S1 devices aren’t. Could there be any other cause? Is this coincidence?Thanks for your consideration!
I have one Sonos device: a Sonos One SL.I run the Sonos app on a Windows 10 PC.I keep my Sonos app and firmware up to date (currently on version 14.10).I bought and use my Sonos device to play songs from Spotify playlists.(I can play songs from Spotify on my Sonos device by either using the Spotify app connect featureor by using the Sonos app, but I prefer using the Sonos app because it allows you to select and playsongs from multiple playlists while the Spotify app only allows you to play from a single playlist.)As long as I’ve had my Sonos device I’ve had intermittent problems when attempting to load songs from one or more Spotify playlists into my queue, or when playing songs from Spotify from my queue.When attempting to load songs from Spotify playlists into my queue I get unable to load songs 1002 errors, and when attempting to play songs from my queue I get unable to play songs - Spotify connection lost errors. These problems are becoming more and more frequent, and lately it has
Hello all, I only manage to get PCM Stereo with my setup when I’m playing.My TV settings are like this : Digital Audio Out : PassThrough eARC enable My PS5 settings : Output Device - HDMI Device (Soundbar) HDMI Device Type - Soundbar Audio Format (Priority) - Linear PCMAll my devices are supposed to support PCM multichannel… Am I missing something ? Thanks for the help !
Hi, I need some help on this one. I can’t connect to Apple Music with my sonos system anymore. I am basically asked to reauthorize again and again Apple Music for Sonos, but never worked. No possibility to play any title and no access to my library. Checking Apple music third-party app with authorization, Sonos S2 does not appear. I do the basic process as usual when adding a music service. This worked before. Don’t know where the issue comes from. Any idea ? Note: My apple music is a student one. Are you aware about any compatibility restriction with sonos ?
After updating to S1 my Sonos system worked as usual by following an update to version 11.2.3, build 57381090, my play 5 Gen 1 will no longer connect. I’ve tried all the solutions as per the app to add a missing product, including the factory reset on the speaker and powering down router and hard wiring the speaker with ethernet cable.I’m left with the mute and dash button flashing green.Given the CEO of Sonos gave a written assurance that the old speakers would work with the new software, that must mean i’m due a new speaker from Sonos as clearly this is not the case.Anyone else with this problem?
I am having problems with the search field in the Sonos Android app S2. The problem is that when I type something into the search field, after a few characters the text gets selected, and than the next character that you type deletes the already inserted text. Hard to explain, but watch the inserted Youtube movie, where I am trying to search for Supertramp. The problem occurs on all my devices: Samsung S22 Ultra, Oneplus 6, Oneplus 3, Motorola g7. Also my wife's Oneplus 8Pro, which uses my Sonos account. The problem does NOT occur on my iPad Air 4.So it would be safe to say that it is not device-dependant. It is driving me crazy, it is impossible to search this way.What I have tried so far:new install of app empty cache of app empty data of app clean install (on my new S22 Ultra) Different soft-keyboards, with all settings tried out (auto correct, autofill, spell-check). Hardware keyboard Voice command Deleting music servicesNothing helped, what can I try more?Is my account corrupt
Spotify is massively out of sync since a couple of weeks. I remember I installed updates to both Spotify and Sonos. So there are on the latest version. Since three years it is normal that Spotify and Sonos are sometimes out of sync, but this time it is heavily broken and does not recover I start playing a list. I press next maybe. Works. And after a few minutes the problem already appears. The song in Spotify is a wrong one. I sometimes cannot even press next anymore. Volume is buggy too When I use the Sonos app it works. I can see the correct song, next and previous works please please fix this I just took a diagnosis: 1849336499
I Haven't used my SONOS in a couple months, but when returning to it, it asked me to re-authorise apple music. Which it tries to do, i click on authorise, with the correct email and password i use for my apple music, it says “authorisation complete” then when i go to my music it just says “unable to load music”Why is this happening?I also want to state, i have factory reset the sonos and the sonos app on my Android phone.
My tv is a Samsung QN85QN90AAFXZA. It’s less than a year old and has eArc. Hooked up the Arc and 4K AppleTV but don’t get Dolby Atmos showing during playback in the Sonos app… It reads “Multichannel PCM 5.1”Known issue? User error?Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
Hi - experiencing audio switching between my ARC connected LG TV and my Beam. Beam cuts out, and TV speakers cut in for a few seconds every now and then. this has persisted across updates, changed cables, power cycling etc. I have a diagnostics dump 1001779540 which I took seconds after it happened last. Many thanks, Robert.
I have a Sonos Gen 2 that has been misbehaving badly lately, and this is a last-ditch effort to try to resurrect it.Symtoms:When connected to Ethernet, it powers on and then I get a solid white light.When not on Ethernet, it flashes white several times and then the light goes out.When I factory reset on Ethernet, it flashes white 3 times, then goes into a sequence of 4 white/orange flashes, then it repeats the sequence as long as I keep the button on the back held down.If I hold the PLAY/PAUSE button, it flashes white a few times and then goes solid red.Looking at my Pi-Hole device list, it DOES show up in my list of Ethernet devices and is assigned an IP address, so there is *some* life to it.I have tried factory resetting it several times, both on/off Ethernet, including at the request of a Sonos chat agent, to no avail. It’s not under warranty anymore so it’s effectively “trash”, which I feel terrrible about. One of those “worked yesterday, now doesn’t work” situations, and there re
Reviving my account here to post this:My music library is completely in Spotify and I rarely listen to playlists, I simply shuffle my entire “My liked songs” list. I've done this on Sonos for years, with a list of just under 3000 songs.Now, I am having exactly the issue described in this topic: (that was apparently never satisfactorily resolved)I'm consistently getting the “unable to add tracks to queue” error when I try to play or shuffle my liked songs. Not sure when this started, I think it is on the order of days, maybe a few weeks. Most of the time my Sonos queue is filled and I don't have to re-add tracks, and I don't remember when it last worked successfully.Of course I will get the boilerplate response, but I'd like to head that off by saying:I have restarted my network and my entire Sonos system sequentially as per the standard procedure. (twice) This used to work flawlessly with exactly the same amount of tracks, on exactly the same network until very recently. This topic:
Hi Play:5, manufacturing date sometime around 2009, is completely dead. No light in LED. Found several cases of this online, but no solutions. Does anyone have any knowledge about the problem, og better yet, schematics.. I mainly suspect problem in switch mode power supply. Have only done very basic measuring, but I find 220VAC on primary side, no power on secondary side. I think about ordering a mosfet, and/or a diode I suspect, but if I had schematics I could do some more pinpointing..
I woke up to find that half of my speakers are showing “incompatible” under my S1 app.Controller says there’s an update, but it won’t let me update. I get an “Error 9”.For kicks, I tried to reset my Sonos Move and repair it with the S1 controller. No such luck. The controller won’t let me do anything until it updates (some options grayed out). Stuck here and need some assistance. I REALLY hope I’m not going to have to go through and reset all these speakers. Any advice or guidance here outside of replacing half my system with S2 compatible speakers? Not ready to do that just yet. Just want everything working as it should. I believe “update automatically”, which I don’t ever recall enabling, may be the culprit. TIA and please advise.
Our Play5 used to work over Wi-Fi, but since about half a year ago it can’t connect over Wi-Fi anymore, and now only works when an ethernet cable is connected. We also have a One SL, which works fine over Wi-Fi. I submitted a diagnostic: 1740776518
I am running a Gen-1 system comprising two Connect ZP90's, a Connect Amp ZP120 and a ZoneBridge BR100. Intermittently, the two ZP90's keep dropping off of the (Sonos) system. Checking my router web page, all components show up as connected and are assigned MAC addresses, even when NOT showing up on the Sonos app. One will disappear to be replaced by the other, before swapping again and (sometimes) temporarily all components will reappear on the system for a short time before disappearing again. This despite one of the ZP90's being hardwired to the router via a NETGEAR 8-Port Gigabit Ethernet Unmanaged Switch (GS108). Restarting the router seems to help temporarily, but isn’t providing a long term fix. Also, frequently, when trying to play a radio station on one of the ZP90's, I get a message saying "Cannot connect to Sonos Product" I have sent diagnostics and the confirmation number is: 1656924348. Can anybody help please? THANK YOU.
