Shows how to reset the JBL Flip 6 wireless speaker to return it to default factory settings. Resetting erases any prior paired Bluetooth devices from its memory. Deleting these stops it from connecting to any nearby devices afterwards. Also, do the reset to get this speaker ready for sale or re gifting, to fix pairing errors, or to stop it from linking with devices you no longer wish it to pair with.
How to Reset JBL Flip 6, Step by Step
1. Turn on the Flip 6
Press and hold the Power button until it lights up.
Find the Power button, as we see in the last picture above.
Then, the Power button lights up along with the battery power scale, as shown next. Here, since we’ve paired the speaker with BT devices before this, it does not enter pairing mode. We know that because the Pairing button flashes slowly, rather than glowing solid or fast blinking.
2. Wait for the Power Up Sound
The 6 makes a rising rock guitar strum sound when it comes on. It is then ready for reset after this sound finishes up.
3. Press the Volume UP and Play-Pause Buttons Together to Start the Reset Process
See the next picture to find the Play-Pause and UP Volume buttons.
The unit then enters reset, as shown in the next picture. Note that both the Bluetooth and Power buttons light up gray white for a couple seconds.
Then after a short pause, the speaker shuts off. All the lights go off, and it makes the power-down guitar sound.
4. Check that Reset Worked
Next, power on the Flip 6 again, as detailed in step 1 above.
Now this time, after reset, the speaker comes up in pairing mode, as we see next. Note that the Bluetooth button blinks white to denote this. When the Bluetooth button blinks, this means that the unit is not currently paired. Indeed, we expect it not to pair to anything after reset.
5. Done with How to Reset the JBL Flip 6 !
Resetting is now complete. You may now pack up the speaker for sale, or pair it again with your favorite BT devices. The speaker will no longer automatically connect with any earlier paired in-range device. To restore automatic BT pairing, manually pair the unit with a tablet or phone. Then, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, pairing with automatically occur once more.
