For those who enjoy viewing films, television shows, or playing video games on a large screen, a soundbar is a must-have accessory. Soundbars may often be used as large Bluetooth speakers by pairing with your smartphone over Bluetooth.
Soundbars from Samsung are quite popular because they’re inexpensive, simple to set up and offer a lot of aural punch when compared to the speakers on your television. Soundbars are frequently preferred by consumers over more complex surround-sound systems. The best soundbars, on the other hand, are not without flaws. Fortunately, most small difficulties with your Samsung soundbar can be resolved quickly and easily by performing a simple reset.
Why is it necessary to perform a factory reset on the SoundBar?
To be honest, it’s rather typical to discover problems with any equipment after using it for a while. It’s especially important when the gadget has been hooked in for days or weeks.
Samsung SoundBars are susceptible to a variety of difficulties, such as the following:
- The soundbar will not work with your TV if it is not connected to the HDMI port
- The subwoofer and soundbar aren’t working together
- The soundbar will connect to a Bluetooth device, but it won’t play any sound
Most consumers will either buy a new soundbar or mail it back to the manufacturer for RMA (return merchandise authorization). Instead of dealing with these little inconveniences, you can just perform a reset.
Soft reset and Hard reset are two different kinds of resets to be mindful of.
What does it mean to “Soft Reset”?
Restarting a device can be regarded as a Soft reset. You won’t have to go through the process of re-pairing your Bluetooth devices if you switch to this method.
What does it mean to “Hard Reset”?
A hard reset is a type of system reboot. You may think of a hard reset as restoring your gadget to its original factory settings. This wipes off all user data, settings, and Bluetooth-linked devices, restoring the device to its original factory condition. Because of this, the term “factory reset” has been coined.
Before attempting a hard reset, give these a shot:
The simplest approach to fix most soundbar difficulties, including connectivity issues, is to perform a hard reset. Nevertheless, you’ll be wiped clean of all your preferences, which is a pain. As a result, you may wish to begin with less invasive repairs.
Try attaching a different device first. As an illustration, if your TV and soundbar aren’t working properly, you might consider using your smartphone instead. It will help you determine if the problem is with the soundbar or the device it is connected to.
Turning Bluetooth off and back on may also help, but this isn’t always necessary. Using any smartphone, you can simply perform these tasks.
The third step is to execute a “soft reset” of your computer. Make sure to keep in mind that you won’t lose any data or configuration if you perform a soft reboot. Step by step, please.
For a few minutes, turn off your soundbar and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Your power cord should be plugged back into the power outlet. Activate the soundbar.
A hard reset is the only option if none of the previous methods work (factory reset).
How to reactivate a Samsung SoundBar?
Resetting your Samsung Soundbar is simple. In order to restore the factory settings on your Samsung soundbar, perform a reset (hard reset). There are many misconceptions out there about the process, but it’s really rather simple and can be accomplished in less than one second.
Please proceed in accordance with the listed procedures:
- Activate the soundbar’s power by pressing the on/off button on the remote control. You can make use of the soundbar’s built-in buttons or the remote control to do this.
- Press and hold the power button on either the remote control or on the soundbar control panel to turn it on.
- Until you see the ‘INIT OK’ message on the display screen, keep pressing the power button. The only thing you need to do is wait for the soundbar to restart.
- Just like I said it would be in less than one minute. When you turn on your Samsung SoundBar again, you’ll need to reconnect all of your devices, especially Bluetooth ones, and check the settings for any customizations you wish to make.
To sum it up, Samsung SoundBars should be able to follow these instructions. The user handbook is always a good place to start. As long as it is not readily available, you can always find it on the manufacturer’s site. It’s also possible to get important information about your product, such as how to clean it, how to store it, firmware updates, and other useful details.
