Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds Good I purchased this sound bar a few months ago and have been pleased with the purchase. Definitely better sound than my built in tv speakers. Pairs well with my LG TV. Volume on movies still a challenge but overall a quality sound bar. Plenty of power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Great features, great sound! But, not that reliable. Thought speaker needed repairing, returned twice, was told nothing was wrong. However, I continued to have the same problem; i.e. transferring sound from television to sound bar. No sound, except occasionally. Tried everything. All other equipment perfect. Not a big fan of HMDI/ARC. Just gave up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid sound bar Overall a great sound bar. Maybe a bit bass heavy for normal dialogue, but music and action flicks are awesome. Subwoofer easy to hide out of the way, but you can definitely hear/feel it no matter where you put it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate it! About 5 months after purchasing had to send back to LG because the display stopped working .got it back and a month later had to send it back again with the same problem. Got it back and the display STILL DOES NOT WORK. I GAVE UP

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sounds fine, BUT HDMI ARC didn't work Bought this along with a new LG 55UH7700 4K TV. Tried everything to get HDMI ARC to work. Called LG customer support three times. No luck. Ended up returning both. I tried two different sound bars and three different HDMI cables (NOT included with the soundbar). Got no where.

How do I sync my soundbat to my subwoofer. The instructions say to press the button behind the soundbar for 5 second but the green light never stops blinking 

Asked by: Anthony2686
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this Sound Bar system. The description given suggests that the pairing process of the Subwoofer speaker has failed. When your connection is not completed, you can check red LED or blinking green LED on the wireless subwoofer and the wireless subwoofer does not make sound. To solve the problem, follow the steps below. 1. Adjust volume level of the main unit to minimum by pressing VOL v button repeatedly until standby LED (Red) turns on for 2 seconds and blinks slowly. 2. Press and hold (Mute) on the remote control for about 3 seconds. The standby LED (Red) on the main unit blinks quickly. 3. Press and hold Pairing on the back of the wireless subwoofer for more than 5 seconds. The LED of the wireless subwoofer lights up alternately in red and yellow-green. 4. Disconnect the power cord of the main unit and the wireless subwoofer. 5. Turn on the main unit: The sound bar and wireless subwoofer will be automatically connected. Green LED on the rear of wireless subwoofer turns on. ^AC

How do I pair this with an echo dot?

Asked by: 1Cece
We are sorry, but the unit can not be paired with the Dot. ^AC
Answered by: amber
Date published: 2018-01-10

I followed The manual to pair Bluetooth devices. But the main sound bar won’t change from the OPT option when I press the F button on the remote control or on the back of the sound bar.
