Red light flashing 3 times. Won’t turn on.


If I press the post button on my OontZ Angle 3 I get a red light that flashes repetively in groups of three.

If I hold the power button down the speaker works (but the red light keeps flashing). As soon as I let go of the button the speaker dies.

I have tried charging with multiple cables.

I have tried to find the reset button through the auxiliary jack, but I don’t feel anything in there that feels like a button.

Any ideas?

Update (05/25/2018)

Has anyone successfully found the reset button?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I do not have mine with me at the moment (I am currently at work), but if there are no responses on this post when I get home I will check on my OontZ.


Bump. Anyone have any ideas?


That did not work with the paper clip

@jytug71kv4zrzki, No, the paper clip isn't going to work because there's no reset switch hidden inside the input jack. Oontz itself offers instructions on how to reset the speaker.


Resetting Your OontZ Angle 3

Note: The reset function only applies to speakers purchased after Sept 1, 2016

Step 1: Remove the Micro USB charging cable and 3.5mm Audio cable, if connected

Step 2: Press and hold down the Power button and + button together for 1 second, then release.

Step 3: The speaker has now been reset and can turn it on.

Note that the Angle 3 ULTRA has a different procedure; for that model you hold down the power button for 8 seconds.
