Resetting a Bluesound Device

How To Reset Bluesound Products

HOW DO I PERFORM A FACTORY RESET ON MY GEN 1 BLUESOUND PLAYER? (NODE, POWERNODE, VAULT)

Steps to Factory Reset:

    • Disconnect the player from electrical power.
    • Wait 30 seconds
    • While holding down the Play/Pause Button, reconnect electrical power (the LED will flash Blue, Red, Green, Red) – do not let go of the LED button
    • Once the LED turns back to Red, continue to hold the button for 30 seconds.
    • After 30 seconds, the LED will begin to blink red – then release the button.
    • All customization to the Bluesound player will be removed and restored to factory settings. Don’t worry about the music stored in the Vault - it will not be deleted.

IMPORTANT: Removing your finger from the LED at any time before the LED begins flashing red will cancel the factory reset and leave the player in Upgrade Mode. Just start the steps again to factory reset the player.

You will know the factory reset is successful if the player returns to Hotspot mode (wireless connection - the LED will turn solid green). If the player is connected to your network through a wired Ethernet connection, it will simply connect as if it was a new player (LED will turn solid blue).
