What People Are Saying

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RICH SOUNDING I replaced a left/right speaker system, along with powered subwoofer, system, and bulky amplifier, with this almost invisible soundbar/woofer and I'm very happy I did. The sound quality and quantity is terrific in my medium sized setting.

My sub woofer not working and the green light blinking?

Asked by: Pineapple jae
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.
