How to Reset Echo Studio Speaker

Here, we show how to factory reset the Echo Studio speaker, to put it back to factory default settings.  You may wish reset to prepare the unit to sell or give the to another.  Or, to link it to a new Alexa account.  Or, to connect it to a new WiFi network.  In all these situations, resetting is the best way to clean out all old account data from the Echo Studio.  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 Amazon account, run through the routine below.





Do not always reset as a first step for fixing strange behavior though. In fact, before resetting, you should first try powering down the speaker by disconnecting its AC cord either from the wall outlet, or from the unit itself.  Then, wait twenty seconds or more. Then plug it back in. Rebooting often restores proper working order. But if not, read on for the proper reset procedure.

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

Next, Pack it Up or Set Up the Speaker Again

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

Or, you can set it up again on your existing account. But if selling, we recommend that you pack the device 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.
