How to Reset Wonderboom Speaker

Here, we give reset Wonderboom Bluetooth speaker instructions that return the speaker to its default factory settings.

Resetting the Wonderboom speaker wipes any paired Bluetooth devices from memory. Clearing this data prevents the Wonderboom from connecting to any nearby BT devices after the reset. Further, you might reset to ready the Wonderboom 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 Wonderboom Speaker, Step by Step

1. Turn on the Wonderboom

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.

2. Wait for the Power Up Sound

The Wonderboom makes a unique electronic sounding noise when it turns on. The speaker is then ready for use when this sound stops.

Now it may or may not pair with a device.  That depends on whether you have any in-range Bluetooth devices that know about the Wonderboom.  Whether paired or not, the reset works as follows.

3. Be Sure the Wonderboom 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.  The   Power button is on the top of the Wonderboom, near the front.  Volume DOWN  is the long plum line on the front, near the bottom.  See these both pointed out by the green arrows in the next picture.

The Wonderboom reset is finished now. So go ahead and gift or sell it, or connect it anew with your BT devices.
