Try These Before Resetting

Here are a few things you can try to fix your connectivity issue before even trying to reset the soundbar. Samsung soundbar is designed to work with Bluetooth enabled devices and Bluetooth have certain limitations.
Firstly, try to reboot everything like the Soundbar, Television or the Subwoofer and pairing everything once again. Also, try to connect the soundbar to a different television and see if it works.

      There may be any technical issue. You can contact any technician to get it fixed.

    • Hi Darron, I came across your question and wondered you solved the problem as our Samsung HW-m360 bought in Aug 18 has shut down and won’t reboot. Tec support advises to take it for diognosis and/or repair but it so far across town that I feel like chucking it and getting a new one. Have tried EVERY combination of things to get it going. Did you have any success and what worked for you if it did. Cheers Ray
