We show you here how to reset a JBL Go 2 Bluetooth speaker, to restore it to its default factory settings. Resetting restores this speaker to factory default state. Plus, it erases any earlier paired Bluetooth devices from the speaker’s memory. Clearing these stops the speaker from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices after the reset. Also, you might reset to make it ready or sale or re-gifting, or to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer wish it to pair with whenever you turn it on.

1. Turn on the Speaker
Press and hold the Power button until the status lamp on the front top lights up and the guitar strum sound plays.
Find the Power button, as shown in the last picture above.
Then, the status light comes on, as shown next.
2. Wait for the Power Up Guitar Sound
The speaker makes a rising electric guitar strum sound when it powers up. The JBL Go 2 Bluetooth speaker is ready for use after this sound finishes. It may or may not pair with a device, depending on whether there are any in-range Bluetooth devices that know about the Go 2. Whether paired the reset works the same way, as follows.
3. Press the Volume UP and Bluetooth Buttons Together
Find the Bluetooth and UP Volume buttons. The BT button is on the top panel, second button in from the left edge of the speaker, and the Volume UP button is two buttons to its right. We circled both buttons in the next picture.
The speaker then enters reset. Within a second or two, the unit powers off after reset finishes, the falling guitar strum sounds, and after the status lamp goes dark, as shown next.

Next, power on the speaker again, as described in step 1 above.

5. Done with How to Reset JBL Go 2 Bluetooth Speaker !
Reset of the JBL Go 2 Bluetooth speaker is now done. So you may now gift or sell it, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.
After reset, the speaker no longer automatically connects with any previously paired Bluetooth device that happens to be in range and in Bluetooth pairing mode. Thus, to restore automatic Bluetooth pairing, you would manually pair the Go 2 with a desired device. Then after that, any time that both this speaker, and that device have Bluetooth turned on, pairing would automatically take place again.
