Resetting Samsung Soundbar

Reset the Soundbar

There are times when the electronic appliances have some weird problems, and we don’t get a hold of the problem. Just like the other gadgets, our soundbars can also have these issues which can make your life harder, like sudden restarting, problems in the equalizer, or when it’s not getting connected to your Bluetooth device.

Surely, these situations can be very problematic, especially when you have an important show to watch or a crucial league match is heading up shortly. You can also do a soft reset before trying a full reset on a soundbar. A soft resetting means turning off your soundbar and then turning it on again after some time.

If the soft resetting of the Samsung soundbar did not resolve the issue for you, then you can try the full resetting on the soundbar, which should eventually get rid of you for all your problems. Below, we have compiled two different methods for resetting your Samsung Soundbar With and without the remote.

  • On your soundbar remote, press the “Power” + “Menu” buttons for about 10 seconds.
  • You should now see the “INT” written on the soundbar, which means that your soundbar is getting reset to the default factory settings.

How to Reset the Samsung Soundbar Without Remote

Although resetting the Samsung soundbars with the remote control is pretty much hassle-free, but, here is the banger, not all the Samsung soundbars have the capability to get reset using the remote system, and you have to get the reset done on these devices by using the physical buttons available on the soundbar itself.

Resetting the soundbar using its own physical keys is not a hard process either. You can easily reset it by following the below-mentioned steps. As there are a variety of different soundbars available in the market, thus we have provided you with two different methods, the first method is using the volume keys, and the other one involves using the play/pause button.

The reason for adding two separate methods for resetting the soundbar is quite obvious, if either of the methods is not working for you, you can always skip to the next one to get the job done.

Why do We need to Do Hard Reset on a Soundbar?

People often think of factory resetting as a magic dose that will magically resolve all the issues for them. Well, it is not the case, factory resetting a soundbar or any other device simply resets the factory settings and gets rid of you of any problems like sound not increasing, poor sound configuration, or device not pairing.

It simply clears the cache, and provides you with a fresh copy of the firmware, by taking all the problems away from you. So, whenever you are facing any issue on your soundbar, give reset a try before claiming the warranty.
