Orbi satellite randomly playing "we wish you a merry Christmas"

Hi all, strange issue.  Randomly, maybe twice a day one of my satellites plays a digital style "We wish you a merry Christmas", just the tones, very annoying like an old style atari game.  It plays for about 2 minutes then stops.  Only the one satellite does it....  

 

Any ideas?  Virus?  I dont even know why it would have a speaker.....

 

Thanks!

You are correct. There is not a speaker in either the RBR750 or RBS750.

More likely it is some other device in the same room as the Orbi.

I thought the same thing when my kid was complaining about it and I didnt belive him, but it did it when I was in the room the other day, and it sure sounds like its from inside the router when you hold your ear to it.  It sounds like the kind of sound you would get from a motherboard speaker, just different pitched soft beeps to the tune of we wish you a merry Christmas.   And it stopped when I unplugged the router......  Very odd...

Try a factory reset on the satellite. 

 

You may want to try to update the Orbi system as well.
