Here, we give the JBL Clip 4 Bluetooth speaker reset routine, to return it to its default settings. Resetting reverts this speaker to its factory default state. Furthermore, it wipes away any prior paired Bluetooth devices from memory. Erasing these stops the Clip 4 from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices after reset. Also, you would do this to get the unit ready for sale or re gifting, or to stop it from joining with devices you no longer wish it to link with.
JBL Clip 4 Reset, Step by Step
1. Turn on the Speaker
Press and hold the Power button until the status lamp lights.
First, find the Power button, as we see in the last picture above.
Then, the status light comes on, as the next picture shows.
2. Wait for the Power Up Guitar Sound
The speaker makes a rising electric guitar strum sound when it powers up. Then, the 4 is ready for reset after this sound ends.
Now the speaker may or may not pair with a device. That depends on whether there are any in-range Bluetooth devices that know about this speaker. But whether paired or not, the reset works the same way, as follows.
3. Press the Volume UP and Pairing Buttons Together
Find the Volume Up and Pairing buttons.
The Volume Up button is on the front of the speaker, near the top, to the right. See it next.
And the Pairing button is on the left side of the speaker, as we point out in the next picture.
After you press and hold these two buttons, the speaker then enters its reset routine.
Next, after a short pause, the Clip 4 turns off. The status lamp goes dark, and the speaker makes the power-down guitar sound.
4. Check that the JBL Clip 4 Reset Did Indeed Happen
Next, power up the Clip 4 again, as we did in step 1 above.
Note that after a reset, our speaker comes up in pairing / discovery mode. The status lamp fast flashes white to tell us this, and you should now be able to see the speaker in a BT source device when connecting to it.
5. Done with JBL Clip 4 Reset !
Reset is now over. So you may now sell or gift it, or pair the speaker once more with your favorite Bluetooth devices.
After the Clip 4 reset, the speaker no longer automatically pairs with any previously synced device that is in range and in pairing mode. Thus, to restore automatic BT pairing, you have to first manually link the Clip 4 with a device. Finally, after that, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth running, and they are in range of one another, pairing would automatically take place once more.
