How to Reset Sony SRS XG300 Speaker

Shows how to reset the Sony SRS XG300 Bluetooth tabletop speaker back to its default settings. E.g. Resetting returns sound mode and light settings to their fresh-out-of-the-box values.  Plus, a reset erases any earlier connected Bluetooth devices from memory. So it stops this unit from auto pairing to any nearby wireless devices afterwards. Moreover, you might do this to get this speaker ready for sale or re-gifting, or just to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer wish it to connect with.

How to Reset Sony SRS XG300, Step by Step

1. Turn the Speaker ON

Press and release the Power button for a half-second or so. E.g. Find the Power button as shown in the next picture.

The unit then makes a rising electronic music sound.

Furthermore, the XG 300 may also make a ding-dong sound and announce that it has connected to a device. Or it may make no sound at all if it doesn’t.  But whether paired or not though, this reset to default state routine works the same way, as follows.

2. Press and Hold the Play-Pause and MEGA BASS Buttons At the Same Time

Find these buttons as shown next.  Both of them are in the top button panel.

Hold these in until the speaker shuts off, and all lights go dark.

After nearly 6 seconds, the XG300 powers down, and the status lamp and party lights (if enabled) all go dark. See the dark lights in the next shot.

3. Check that the Reset of the Sony SRS XG300 Speaker Was Indeed Successful

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

Note that after the reset, this speaker comes up in discovery mode. The Bluetooth Pairing lamp blinks blue in a pulse-pulse-pause-pulse-pulse-pause sequence, to let you know this. E.g. See this in the next picture.

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 a Sony SRS XG300 !

The reset is now finished. Thus you may now safely sell or gift this speaker, or pair it again with your Bluetooth devices.

Keep in mind that after you do this, the XG300 no longer automatically pairs with any previously paired BT device. Thus, to set up auto connecting again, you first manually pair this speaker with a device. Then following that, any time that both speaker and device have Bluetooth turned on, and they’re near each other, pairing will automatically take place once more.
