How to Turn On Sony SRS XB10 Bluetooth Speaker

We explain how to turn on the Sony SRS XB10 portable Bluetooth speaker here.  Now most speakers have a Power button that Sony prominently positions on the unit so it’s easy to find.  Indeed, this speaker is no exception to this pattern, as we find its Power button near the bottom in the button panel, as we see next.

There’s also a status lamp, just beneath the Power button, that begins glowing when the speaker powers up, as we point out below.

This lamp is dark when the speaker is OFF, as seen above.





And when the unit is running, this lamp lights up as we see next.

How to Turn On the Sony SRS XB10

To power up this speaker, press the Power button. Then release after a quarter second or so.  Also, you needn’t hold it in for too long for the unit to see your press and then turn itself on.

When the speaker comes on, the status lamp starts glowing, and the unit may or may not make a beep sound.  It will sound a ding-don sort of beep pattern if it pairs to a nearby Bluetooth device.  But if it pairs with nothing, then it makes no sound.

But if pressing the Power button does not turn on the speaker, or if the CHG light blinks orange, it could be that you need to charge your speaker.

So if the unit won’t come on, try connecting a USB charger to it.  Yes, you can indeed play the speaker as it charges.

Now with a charger supplying power, this speaker should always power on when you depress the Power button.  If not, then the unit may not be getting any juice from your AC adapter.  So check that the receptacle for the power supply is live, that the adapter works, that the cable between it and the speaker is not damaged, and that the charger plug is fully seated in the speaker’s micro USB port.

But if after all these checks the speaker still does not turn on, then the unit itself may be ruined. So in that case, get a new one.
