UE Wonderboom Reset Instructions

Here, we demo UE Wonderboom reset instructions. These restore the factory default settings to the UE.  The hard reset on this UE Boom line of wireless Bluetooth speakers works as follows.

Resetting UE Wonderboom speakers wipes any memorized Bluetooth devices from memory. Clearing this data prevents the UE from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices after the factory reset. Further, you might reset the Wonderboom to re gift it.  Or, you just wish  to stop its auto pairing with devices you no longer play through lt.

UE Wonderboom Reset Routine

1. Turn on the Speaker

Press and release the  Power  button.  The status lamp in that button lights and you hear a power-up sound. We’ve circled the  Power  button in the next picture.

2. Wait for the Power Up Sound

The UE Wonderboom makes a unique sounding turn-on noise. The UE is then ready for reset when this sound finishes.  It may or may not pair with a device.  That depends on whether you have any in-range Bluetooth devices that know about the Wonderboom and that it have previously paired with as well.  Whether paired or not, this reset help works the same way, as follows.

3. Be Sure the UE Wonderboom is Not Paired with Anything

UE speakers do not respond to reset requests while connected with a source Bluetooth device. So, unpair the Wonderboom before resetting.

4. Press the  Power  and the   Volume DOWN  Button Together for Up to Eight Seconds

Find the  Power  and Volume DOWN   buttons.  The   Power  button is on the top of the speaker, near the front.   Volume DOWN   is the long vertical line on the front, near the bottom.  See these both pointed out by the green arrows in the next picture.

The Wonderboom then enters hard factory reset.  In a few seconds, the unit powers off when reset completes. The falling electronic ka-plunk sound plays. Then the status lamp in the  Power  button goes dark, as shown next.

5. Check that your UE Wonderboom Did Indeed Reset

Next, power on the UE again, as detailed in step 1 above.

After a reset, the Wonderboom comes up in ready-to-pair mode again, with the pairing lamp rapidly flashing white.

6. UE Wonderboom Reset Now Done !

Reset is done now. So go ahead and let someone else use this speaker. Or pair it again with your favorite Bluetooth devices.

After a reset, the UE no longer auto connects with any previously paired Bluetooth devices. Thus, to restore automatic BT pairing, you pair by hand the Wonderboom with your desired device(s). Then any time that both the UE and device have Bluetooth turned on, pairing again occurs without you having to do anything.

Don’t forget to delete any now-stale connections to UE Wonderboom from your source Bluetooth devices that you set up prior to hard resetting the speaker.  These will no longer work.  So you’ll want to “forget” them in your source device’s settings pages.
