My invoke becomes unresponsive after a few mins whenplaying music from a paired Bluetooth device... every time. I did the whole setup as well as factory reset it already and same issue. I only use the invoke as a paired Bluetooth speaker, so it doesn't serve it's purpose when it keeps disconnecting. Please help!

Same issue here. Feels like the speaker is warm (not hot) near the top. 10-20 min max of play, and it will freeze completely. The light will then go amber and the unit reboots after a while. Really enjoy the sound from this device when it works, so this is very disappointing.

I am haveing an issue that started yesterday I just moved it to a different location and ever since then the led light sensor has been spiraling around and won’t even let me set it up to an account and so far I have tried holding down the microphone button, unplugging it and plugging it in, hitting the factory reset button. Also I have tried to see if I could do it manually with a mini usb male to usb male port and I did find connection problems because my computer would keep on restarting the device manager when I tried to run it does anyone know how to fix this.

Any luck? I’m having the same exact issue. One White LED circling around the top display. Powers on but unresponsive to bluetooth, mic button or reset pinhole. I don’t want to throw this speaker away.

Doesn’t set up keeps saying something went wrong
