How to Fix the Vizio Soundbar


Vizio soundbars are a great way to amplify audio from external devices without having to get an entire speaker system. This also makes soundbars ideal for pairing with devices for use in a small business setting. Most issues with Vizio soundbars stem from the device they’re connected to or are the result of interference from another nearby device or object, but occasionally, the issue can be with the device’s hardware. Use troubleshooting to try fixing your Vizio soundbar problems before reaching out to Vizio support.

Soundbar Won’t Turn On

  1. Push the connectors on the power cord connecting the Vizio Soundbar to the external device firmly into the AC outlet it’s connected to and also to the connecting port on the device. If the device is loosely connected at either end, it may not power on.
  2. Connect another device that you know works to the AC outlet the soundbar is connected to. If that device also doesn’t work, you likely have an issue with the outlet, such as a blown circuit breaker or a defective outlet.
  3. Move closer to the Vizio soundbar and also remove any objects between the remote control and the soundbar, then try using the remote to power the soundbar on. The remote may not power the soundbar on if it’s more than 15 feet away from the device or if there are objects in between the remote and the soundbar. If neither of those options work, try pressing the “Power” button on the soundbar. If the device turns on, try replacing the batteries in the remote, as they’re likely drained.
