Here, we explain how to reset a UE Bluetooth speaker, that return the speaker to its default factory settings and often solve many pairing or other problems.
Resetting the UE speaker wipes any paired Bluetooth devices from memory. Clearing this data prevents the speaker from connecting to any nearby BT devices after the reset. Further, you might reset to ready the unit for sale or re-gifting. Or, perhaps you simply wish to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer listen to on it when you power it up.
How to Reset UE Speaker, Step by Step
1. Turn on the Speaker
Press and release the Power button. The status lamp in that button lights and you hear a power-up sound. We circled the Power button in the next picture.
Then, the status light comes on solid or it blinks, as shown next.
2. Wait for the Power Up Sound
Most any UE speaker makes some sort of electronic sounding noise when it powers on. So when you hear it, the speaker is then ready for use.
3. Be Sure the UE Speaker is Not Paired with Anything Prior to Reset
This speaker does not answer to the reset command while connected with a source Bluetooth device. So disconnect it before resetting.
4. Press the Power and the Volume DOWN Button Together for Five to Eight Seconds
Find the Power and Volume DOWN buttons. E.g. See these both pointed out by the green arrows in the next picture on our example speaker. Note that most UE speaker models reset using the same buttons.
The UE speaker then enters reset. Within a couple seconds, the unit switches off afterwards. Next, the falling electronic ker-plunk sound plays. Then the status lamp in the Power button goes dark, as shown next.
5. Check that your UE Speaker Did Indeed Reset
Next, power on the unit again, as detailed in step 1 above.
After reset, the UE speaker comes up in ready-to-connect mode, with the pairing lamp rapidly flashing white.
6. Done with How to Reset UE Speaker !
The UE reset is finished now. So go ahead and gift or sell it, or connect it anew with your BT devices.
Don’t forget to delete any now-stale connections to the UE speaker from your source BT devices that you set up prior to resetting. These will no longer work. So you should “forget” them in your source device’s settings pages.
