How to Reset Sony SRS XB13 Speaker

Show you how to reset your Sony SRS XB13 Bluetooth speaker to its default settings.  Resetting restores the XB13 Extra Bass speaker to default state. Plus, resetting erases any earlier paired Bluetooth devices from its memory. Clearing these stops this speaker from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices. Also, you might reset this speaker to get it ready for sale or re-gifting, or to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer wish it to connect with.

The speaker may make a ding-dong tone sound when it powers up, should it pair to a nearby device. Or it may make no sound at all if it does not.  Whether paired or not though, this reset routine works the same way, as follows.

2. Press and Hold the Play-Pause and Volume UP Buttons Together

Find these buttons as shown next.  They are both near the bottom of the speaker, as we point out in the next picture.

The XB13 then enters reset mode.

Then after a very short pause, the speaker powers OFF, and the status lamp goes dark, as shown next. Note that on the SRS XB13, there is no power-down sound.

3. Check that your Sony SRS XB13 Speaker Did Indeed Reset

Next, power on the unit again, as detailed in step 1 above.

Note that after a factory default hard reset, the XB13 comes up in pairing mode. The Power lamp blinks blue rapidly to let you know this.  This is a signal that you may then look for this speaker on a nearby BT device, and pair to it if you so desire.





4. Done with How to Reset the Sony SRS XB13 Bluetooth Speaker !

The reset is now finished. So you may now sell or gift it, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After a reset, the XB13 no longer automatically connects with any previously paired Bluetooth device. Thus, to restore automatic pairing, you manually pair it with a device. Then after that, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, and they’re near to each other, pairing would automatically take place once more.
