Sub cuts out very oftenBought this about 3 months ago. Was very good with music, tv, and movies. With the subwoofer cutting out rarely. Now the sub cuts out just about every other bass drop. Would not buy or recommend to a friend

Great soundI bought this within the month, really liked the ease of setting it up! The only negative I see is the remote. It is definitely better than the last one but really needs the quick instructions on the back of the remote so I don’t have to go get the booklet. I added the rear speaker kit ant it too was very easy to set up! I would buy again!

Fills the room with soundI’ve owned this for a month (with the add-on rear speakers) and still am thrilled with how this fills the room with sound. It doesn’t overpower your ears, yet I can clearly hear the talking in movies and still enjoy all the background noises. For the price it seems like one of the better options, especially with the ease in which it connected and operates with my LG tv.

This may sound dumb but how do you turn the SJ5Y sound bar on? I have it connected with a HDMI cable to a Phillips TV and of course have the power bar & sub plugged in but no power. Also the green light on the sub is not on. Please help!

I bought the sound bar and rear speaker kit but am unable to turn surround to ON status on my LG tv so rear speakers inoperable. Tried holding down Autovol per directions to turn surround on. Will not turn surround on. Any suggestions?
Asked by: TheKeithF
When you press the AUTO VOL as listed in the manual, do you see SURROUND scroll? It would be suggested to ensure the rear speakers are connected properly on the unit. If this doesn't correct the issue, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional support.
