Google Nexus Q

Factory Reset Instructions

  1. Unplug the Nexus Q, then plug it in again.
  2. Wait for the Ring LED to light up, and then place your palm over the single LED on top.
  3. The ring LED starts flashing red. Keep your palm in place until the ring LED stops pulsing red and starts circling blue (about 10 seconds).
  4. If you lift your finger too soon, the LED turns solid red. If this happens, unplug and plug in the Nexus Q again to start over.
  5. During a successful reset, the ring LED will pulse purple to indicate that is is wiping all data.
  6. Once the reset is complete, the Nexus Q will reboot. After a short time, it will display a solid color to indicate it's ready to be set up again.
