4. Done with How to Factory Reset the Sony Cube Speaker !

Factory reset is now complete. So you may now sell or gift the cube, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After a factory reset, the speaker no longer automatically connects with any previously paired Bluetooth device. Thus, to restore this auto pairing, you manually pair this cube speaker with a device. Then any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth ON, and they’re in range of one another, pairing automatically takes place once again.
