How to Reset Alexa Echo Studio Speaker

Here, we show how to factory reset the Alexa Echo Studio speaker, to put it back to factory default settings.  So why would you ever want to hard reset this speaker?  Well, you may wish to sell or give the unit to another person.  Or link it to a new Amazon account.  Or connect it to a new WiFi network.  In all these cases, resetting is the best way to clean out all old account data from this speaker.  Reset gets it ready to use on a new account and / or WiFi network.  So to reset the speaker, and unpair it from its current Alexa account, run through the routine below.





Do not always factory reset as a first step for fixing strange Echo Studio  behavior. Before resetting, try shutting off the speaker by unplugging its power cable either from the wall outlet, or from the unit itself.  Then, wait twenty seconds or so. Then plug it back in. Rebooting often restores proper working. But if not, read on for the proper reset procedure.

Once you hard reset the speaker, you’ll no longer be able to control it from your Amazon account.  To get control of it back, run through the Setup procedure again.  There, relink the speaker to that account again via the Alexa app.

Pack it Up or Set Up your Echo Studio Again

You may now give your Alexa Studio Echo to another now.  Don’t fear that they’ll have access to the Alexa settings on your Amazon account though. They won’t.

Or, you can set it up again on your existing account. But if selling, we suggest that you pack the speaker in its original carton. Do this for safest transport through the mail, as shown in the next picture.  Then, pack the Echo box in another outer box for further safety.
