Questions and Answers

Sonos boost light flashing orange?

The light on my Sonos boost is flashing orange and won't connect.

When your light is flashing orange, it means your boost is looking for a household to join. This usually occurs when you are setting up your Boost for the first time. If you have already set up your Boost and I just started doing this, reset your Boost by unplugging it, waiting 30 sec and plugging it back in.
