In case of a blue light flashing on the ring doorbell, it means that the bell wants to notify you regarding the status of the device, the status listing being as follows;

  • The blue light will spin when you have pressed an ordinary button. 
  • If the process of booting for the camera of the doorbell video is already underway, the light will turn and off every second. 
  • The ring will light up in solid blue color if the speaker is turned on. 
  • In case you have reset the device, a short blue flash will appear which is followed by a white light. 

If the list mentioned above is of no help, or in case you are facing other sorts of issues, it can easily be fixed by searching for what is wrong with your doorbell. 

Let us now get to know how to reset ring video doorbells.

Couldn’t find the cause of the issue? Well in cases where we are unable to find what is wrong with our device, we generally opt for a hard reset so the device can go back to its optimal condition. 

All thanks to the designers of modern-day ring doorbells, users can make good use of the reset option for the ring devices. One thing that you should keep in mind is that the process of resetting depends upon the model of your doorbell. 

If you are using a doorbell or doorbell version 2, an orange button is available. One simply needs to press it for 15-20 seconds and the device will reboot as soon as they see a flashing light on the front side of your device. 

If for some reason, your version of the doorbell doesn’t have a setup mode, simply turn it off for 10-15 minutes to begin with the startup process. 

Even though the solutions are pretty simple when it comes to doorbell issues, some issues may trouble users more than others. 

What if there is no sound in the doorbell? Let us find out

No sound issue in doorbell

There are two simple explanations for this issue. Either the speakers of your device aren’t working or you haven’t enabled the microphone. If the microphone is not set up with the doorbell, you will be unable to hear anything. This is why you need to make sure that it is turned on to avoid any further issues. 

As soon as you access the ring app, try to turn the microphone on and off a couple of times and if that doesn’t solve the issue, you will just have to buy a new mic. 

Here are some simple ways that can help you to fix this issue with relative ease. 

Need a new video doorbell?

If you continue to experience issues with the original generation of Ring doorbell, perhaps it’s about time you upgraded to a new device. There are many alternative video doorbells on the market aside from Ring that offer other features such as facial recognition, free offline storage, or Google Home support, so make sure you do some research before you buy.
