We give Sony XB33 reset instructions here to return this wireless speaker to its default factory settings. Resetting restores the XB33 to fresh-out-of-box state. Plus, it takes away any prior paired Bluetooth devices from memory. Clearing these stops this speaker from pairing to any nearby BT devices. Also, you might reset to get the unit ready for sale or re-gifting, or to stop it from syncing with devices you no longer wish it to connect with.
Sony XB33 Reset Instructions, Step by Step Routine
1. Turn the Speaker ON
Press and release the Power button for a half-second or so. Find the Power button as shown in the next picture.
Then, the status light lights up green, as we see next.
The speaker may make a ding-dong tone sound as it boots. It may also announce that it has paired, should it connect to a in-range device. Or it may make no sound if not. But whether the unit pairs or not though, this hard reset routine works the same way, as follows.
2. Press and Hold the Pairing and Volume DOWN Buttons Together
Find these buttons as shown next. They are both on the top button panel, as we point out in the next picture.
The XB 33 then enters the reset process.
Next, after a few seconds, the speaker powers OFF. The status lamp goes dark, as shown next. Plus, note that there is no powering-OFF sound when the unit powers down.
3. Check that your Sony XB33 Did Indeed Reset
Next, power on the unit again, as detailed in step 1 above.
Note that after reset, the 33 comes up in discovery mode. The Pairing Mode lamp double blinks blue to let you know this.
This signifies that you may then look for this speaker on a nearby BT device, and pair to it if you want.
4. Done with Sony XB33 Reset !
Resetting is now done. So you may safely sell or gift the speaker, or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.
After reset, the XB33 no longer automatically syncs with any previously joined Bluetooth device. Thus, to restore auto pairing, you manually connect it with a device. Then, any time that both speaker and that device have Bluetooth turned on, and they’re near to each other, pairing automatically takes place once more.
