Special Attention to the customers who purchased Newport Plug-in Speaker:
Once you've connected the speaker with your device, if you unplug the speaker from the electrical outlet or move it to another outlet, please reconnect it by Pressing the Power Button to turn it on. This way, the speaker will automatically reconnect itself.
If you try to reconnect it to your device to turn it on without pressing the power button, the sound will not come out even though the Bluetooth status shows "connected" or the voice prompt says "connected".
After turning on the power of the Newport Plug-In speaker if sound is still not coming out, please reset it entirely by accessing your device's Bluetooth setting to find "FORGET THIS DEVICE". It will automatically enter pairing mode if the speaker is in the "on" state (if the speaker is "off" state, please press the power button after selecting "Forget This Device").
