1. Turn the JBL Flip 4 Speaker On

First things first, you need to turn on your JBL speaker to reset it. If it's already on, you can switch to the next step, but it is better to turn it off and turn it on again. But if it is not on, press the power button and hold it until it is lit up.

The power button and the battery scale lighting up indicate that the JBL speaker is on. Also, you will hear a rising electric guitar strum sound from it after it gets on. But here's this thing you might not have known before.

That is, if your Bluetooth is already connected to devices, then the power button produces white light after getting on since it skips the Bluetooth discovery mode. But if the power button produces blue light, it means you haven't paired it with other Bluetooth devices yet.

2. Press the Volume Up and Play/Pause sign Together

This is the most crucial step. Because this is the step for which your JBL speaker will reset to its factory, for this step, you will have to press the "Volume Up" (+) sign and the "Play/Pause" sign on your JBL speaker together for a while until it turns off.

If it turns off completely, you will hear a guitar sound, and the power button will not light anymore. The speaker is completely off due to pressing these two buttons to indicate that the speaker is on its factory reset mode. Now that it has been reset to factory settings, you will connect the Bluetooth with any other devices except the previous ones.

3. Press the Power button

This very step is important to check whether your JBL Flip 4 speaker has actually reset or not. For that, you will have to press the power button again to turn it on, as you did previously. But this time, your JBL Flip 4 speaker should be reset to factory settings.

As we said before, if the color of the power button light is blue, then it indicates not being paired with any device yet. So, if your speaker actually resets, then the power button should be blue after turning on as it will not pair with any previous devices. But if it is not, then maybe for some reason, it didn't reset.

But don't judge if it's reset or not by the power button light. Check whether the previous Bluetooth connections are still paired. If not, then try pairing new ones. If everything works well, then Congratulations! Your JBL Flip 4 speaker has been successfully reset.

1. Turn the JBL Charge 4 Speaker On

On the other hand, if you haven't paired it with anything yet, it will light up along with the power button after turning it on. Like the JBL Flip 4 speaker, there will be power up the sound of a rising electric guitar strum.

2. Press the Volume Up and Bluetooth Signs Together

This time, you have to press your volume up button along with the Bluetooth button for a while. Hold them together until the power button, along with the Bluetooth button and the oval ring around them, lights up brightly.

3. Press the Power button again

But, hey, you're not done with your steps yet. Don't leave the room without checking whether your JBL Charge 4 speaker has actually reset or not. And to check that, you have to turn on the speaker again
