Google home mini has never worked. Four solid white lights on.  Will not reset. Have tried holding reset for minute or more.  One solid green light and 3 solid white lights when reset button is held. No sound, volume controls not working. Have disconnected and reconnected power. Nothing at all.

Try the following:
  1. Make sure your mobile device or tablet is connected to the same Wi-Fi as your Google Home Mini device.
  2. Make sure the Mini is powered at a wall outlet, not on a USB port or power strip outlet.
  3. Open the Google Home app Google Home app.
  4. In Home , tap the Mini device you want to reboot.
  5. In the top right corner of the device card, tap the Settings .
  6. In the top right corner of the Device settings, tap the More button More menu and then Reboot.

I don’t have the 3 dots in the top right. Under device settings I have a banner that says some settings are unavailable right now.

Hi John,
Sorry to hear that you are seeing some odd LEDs.
Has the Mini been set up and working before?
Try unplugging it for a few minutes and try again.
If you are still having trouble, let us know.

I have left it unplugged for an entire day and still no change. This is very upsetting as I have only had this for about 2 weeks. I was able to set it up and it worked beautifully for about 2 weeks.

I have the same problem, it started happening a few months back while I was in college. Since then I thought it was a network issue but it's definitely an issue with the firmware. I would appreciate it if I could get some assistance fixing the issue or getting a replacement. 
Thanks, :)
