Hi, since the past few months, I have been unable to add my soundtouch 30 speaker to the soundtouch app. Have gone through all the troubleshooting including resetting the speaker, uninstalling the app, adding again, moving the speaker to another place. Every time I reset, I am able to connect the speaker to the WiFi. The WiFi signal turns white and I have seen the information of the WiFi upon pressing 5 + vol- button as well. However, at the last step of renaming the speaker to add to the app, it throws an error saying some error occurred, please try again later. Please help. I have used iPhones, android phone and a laptop to connect. Nothing works.
Thank you for reaching out to us and welcome!
I'm sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with connecting your SoundTouch 30 to the SoundTouch application. I'll be more than happy to help!
I would recommend help forcing an update to your speaker by pressing and holding the 4 and volume minus button together for 10 seconds. The screen should count you down on the front. You should do this when you have successfully connected the speaker to your network and you have a solid white LED at the front.
Let me know how you get on!
Hi, thanks for responding. But this doesn’t work for me either. I had tried this step earlier as well and now again after resetting. Firstly upon pressing 4 and - vol, I can see a countdown of 5 seconds. Don’t know if that’s how it’s supposed to be. Anyway, the screen doesn’t get past 1 second to finish. So it doesn’t update. I tried with both WiFi and Ethernet connection. Neither works.
Thanks for coming back to us!
I'm sorry this hasn't worked for me. The next step would be to try and manually update your SoundTouch 30.
You can do this by following the instructions outlined HERE.
Let me know how it goes!
Thanks, but still no luck 🙁. I updated the speaker. Hoping mine is series III as I purchased that in 2018. The system rebooted after the update but still showing the same error while trying to connect to the app.
Thanks for confirming. I know it sounds strange but please can you try creating a new SoundTouch account and try adding the speaker to that please?
Hi, i tried logging in to a different id, but still the same. however, what I didn't highlight was that the last time I tried updating and today again with the update.stu file as in the link, the screen fades after reaching 100% (text greys out) and it doesn't reboot. The last time I had to switch off and update again. Today, I again reset the speaker to factory settings, and tried updating the same way and again, nothing happens after reaching 100%. It gets stuck at "100% installing updates". so i don't know if its actually updating.
Thank you for letting us know! If you are able to update again, it's likely that it is not updating correctly.
