Re: Soundlink Color II auto powers on after latest sofware update when Bluetooth on phone is activat

This is really crazy! Spent about an hour with phone rep doing resets and trying different things. Hopefully there will be a fix for this with an app update or a speaker update to reverse this unwanted feature.I wonder if the person who thought of this would like it if everytime they walked by the fridge, the doors would open. Or walk up to the sink and the water turns on, or enter the bathroom and the shower starts and the comode flushes. And you can't turn any of those functions off.

Might be a geat feature for some but for sure not most. Give us the option of on or off please!!

Re: Soundlink Color II auto powers on after latest sofware update when Bluetooth on phone is activat

Hi MoSail,

This is the single most problematic issue about the Soundlink Color II. It's always turning on when one of its recognized Bluetooth devices turn on. And once it turns on and is connected to the Bluetooth device, it stays on. That turn off after designated time does not work if there's a valid Bluetooth connection. I always have to be aware and turn it off or it's out of power in a couple of hours after turning on automatically. I often turn it to the external hookup setting by pressing that third button from the left that disconnects it from Bluetooth without turning it off. That keeps it off, incidentally, when you physically turn it off while that button is engaged. But it's a kludge. There must be a better solution.

Correct. If you want to have the SoundLink "Off", switch to "AUX" and turn it off. It will stay off.

 

Unfortunately for "best user experience" the last working firmware version is no longer available. Waiting ...

I have the same issue, and I would also like to say, that it is **bleep** annoying! Please make an update that fixes the problem!

 

Kind regards Rasmus Morgen
