Before we dive right into the technicals, keep in mind that Samsung has made many soundbars, different models, distinctive designs, and some with unrelated settings. They include various functions and features that make them unique. Resetting them shouldn’t be a pain but the steps are generic. You have to press and hold on to some buttons, and then the soundbar will go into reset mode. Once you’re in reset mode, you can navigate to the factory settings and there you have it.
So, what is the problem here? Why do we need to reset a soundbar? There could be major issues like the sound is being projected inward. But, that calls for a different audio specialist, not one article.
Below, we will discuss the reasoning behind resetting your Samsung soundbar and the method involved.
There could be several reasons but the main reason is the fact that there are connectivity issues. The system is refusing to connect your TV and device. Remember, soundbars connect via Bluetooth or a WiFi option. This issue can only occur with wireless devices. Try switching the Bluetooth on and off on your soundbar before resetting the entire system. The Bluetooth-enabled devices can also cause an issue, try switching them on and off. Rebooting the Bluetooth system can be the solution before actually resetting your soundbar.
Another reason could be multiple devices. A piece of technological equipment with a Bluetooth function has a limit to the amount of Bluetooth devices it can pair up to. You might have your TV, speakers, and cellphone connected to the soundbar. Once you have an overflow of Bluetooth devices, the equipment can malfunction. To resolve this issue, try to connect your soundbar to a different TV. It could be your TV that’s the problem. Or connect a different device to the soundbar.
Your subwoofer is the third issue that can occur but is a rare issue. The connection between your subwoofer and soundbar could be breaking due to the many devices in the area. These devices on the same frequency as your soundbar could be referred to as obstacles between your soundbar and the desired device. A microwave can be the problem, just move it away from your soundbar. If these quick options don’t resolve your problem, here are some steps you can follow
You can use your Samsung remote for this section. Resetting your Samsung soundbar doesn’t involve any additional costs. You don’t need to buy any extra wire, an extra remote, or a subwoofer. The process involves your Samsung remote, your soundbar, and a television. It could be your television or a demo television that you’re going to use when trying to reset the soundbar. Just keep in mind that you’re going to need your TV at the end when pairing your soundbar to your desired devices.
Word of warning: If your soundbar does not pair with any Bluetooth devices, contact the Samsung support center by visiting their website. You can request additional help from a trained professional via email, telephone contact, or a personal visit (with the Covid-19 outbreak, the personal visit might not be an option).
