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.

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 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 remain lit for a couple seconds.

Next, power on the device again, as detailed in step 1 above.
Now this time, after reset, our JBL speaker comes up in Bluetooth discovery mode, as shown 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 a reset.

The unit will no longer automatically connect with any previously paired Bluetooth device that is in range. 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, pairing with automatically take place once more.
