Gives JBL Flip 6 factory reset directions to restore the speaker to default settings. In summary, factory resetting clears any earlier paired Bluetooth devices from its memory. We may wish to clear these because this stops the speaker from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices. Plus, you might reset to prepare the Flip 6 for sale or re gifting. Or, you may factory reset just to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer wish it to sync with.
JBL Flip 6 Factory Reset, Step by Step
1. Turn on the JBL Flip 6
Firstly, press and hold the Power button until it lights up. Find this button in the next picture.
Then, the Power button lights up along with (briefly) the battery power scale. He
2. Wait for the Power Up Sound
The JBL Flip 6 makes a rising rock guitar strum sound when it powers up. The Flip is ready for use after this sound finishes.
3. Press the Volume UP and Play-Pause Buttons Together
See the next picture to find the Play-Pause and UP Volume buttons. These protrude from the fabric. The Play-Pause button looks like an arrow, and the Up Volume button looks like a plus sign.
The Flip 6 JBL then enters factory reset, as we see in the next picture. Note that both the Bluetooth and Power buttons light up gray white along with the battery gauge and the oval that surrounds the buttons. They stay lit for a couple seconds.
Then after a short pause, the speaker powers OFF. All the lights go off, and it makes the power-down guitar sound.
4. Check that JBL Flip 6 Factory Reset Worked
Next, power on the speaker again, as we detail in step 1 above.
Now this time, after factory reset, our speaker comes up in Bluetooth discovery mode, as we see next. Note that the Bluetooth button blinks white to denote this. Now when the Bluetooth button flashes rapidly, this means that the unit is in pairing mode. Indeed, we expect it not to pair to anything after factory reset.
5. Done with JBL Flip 6 Factory Reset !
Factory resetting is now complete. So you may now pack up the speaker for sale, or again pair it with your favorite BT devices. The unit will no longer automatically connect with any previously paired Bluetooth device that is in range. Thus to restore automatic Bluetooth pairing, manually pair the Flip 6 with a tablet or phone. Then, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, and are in range of one another, pairing with automatically take place once more.
