Controlling your playerUpdated 23 days ago

Find out what the different player controls do

 The player controls behave differently depending on whether a card is inserted or not, and also sometimes if the orientation of the player changes (Yoto Player only) 

With no card inserted

Left-hand orange button (Yoto Player and Yoto Mini)

  • Turn clockwise - increases volume
  • Turn anti-clockwise - decreases volume

Right-hand orange button  (Yoto Player and Yoto Mini)

  • Press the button once to play Yoto Daily (if you are online). 
  • Press it once again to play Yoto Radio (if you are online). To return to the clock display, press the button one last time.

Right-hand orange button (Yoto Player only)

  • Turn clockwise when in nightlight mode to increase the brightness of the nightlight (or turn on if previously turned down to zero)
  • Turn anti-clockwise when in nightlight mode to decrease the brightness of the nightlight (down to zero)

Power button (bottom right-hand side of the Yoto Player / right side of Yoto Mini)

  • Press and hold for 3 seconds  - turns the player on or off
  • Press and hold for 10 seconds  - performs a hard reset and restart of the player - use this if the player freezes or is behaving strangely. Don't worry, doing this won't delete Wi-Fi details or any content
