Hisense Soundbar Not Working (How To Fix/Reset)

One important thing to keep in mind is the fact that there are many connection points between the soundbar and the TV. It may only be in a single cable but that cable is a type of technology that has often been updated over the years.

When was the last time you checked your cables? If they are split or cracked, you may not be getting the signal that you need. Any type of damage can even keep them from working altogether.

The same is also true if the port is not cleaned properly. If you are using a port that is full of dirt and dust, it is also not going to be sending the full signal.

The best thing you can do is to clean everything. Blow out the port with some compressed air and then use some rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip to gently clean the inside. You should also clean the cables.

If that fails, you may need to upgrade the cables to the latest technology. Try using them on another TV and see if you can get the soundbar to work.

Those are just some basic tips to help you get started with the process. As you will find out in this article, there may be other things that will work as well, depending on why you are experiencing the problem.

For now, let’s take a look at some of the specific issues that can occur with a Hisense soundbar and how to fix them.

If you are experiencing a problem and your Hisense soundbar will not turn on, is there a way to fix it?

Power cycling your Hisense soundbar will often help to fix an issue where the power button is not working. Try unplugging the soundbar and leaving it unplugged for a few minutes before plugging it back in again. If that doesn’t work, try it again two or three times before moving on.

There are many different reasons why a soundbar may not be getting power. It doesn’t always have to do with the power button but sometimes, it goes beyond that.

For example, we often plug in many different electronic devices in the same or similar areas when we are using a soundbar. This can include the TV, DVD player, cable box, and many other items.

It’s not out of the question for the circuit breaker to get overloaded because you are putting too much on it. Has the circuit breaker been tripping? You might want to try removing some of the items or moving them onto a different circuit to see if it helps.

Check the receptacle as well as the power cable to make sure that they are not damaged. If they are damaged, they should be repaired or replaced.

Hisense Soundbar Not Connecting To Subwoofer

If your Hisense soundbar is not connecting to a subwoofer, you’re not going to get the full experience. How can it be fixed?

Since the soundbar connects to the subwoofer with Bluetooth, there may be problems where it is not recognizing it properly. This could be because the subwoofer is too far away from the soundbar. Put them near each other until they can pair properly.

If you are still experiencing a problem with them close to each other, you may need to take things to the next step. This would include cycling the power on both the soundbar and the subwoofer and then pressing and holding the pairing button on the subwoofer for a few seconds.

When pairing the subwoofer, the light will blink rapidly. It will then connect to the soundbar. If that doesn’t work, try connecting the soundbar with another Bluetooth device, such as your smartphone.

Are you having a hard time getting your soundbar connected to your TV? There may be a solution that can help.

Since a Hisense soundbar uses Bluetooth to connect to the television, you should put it in discovery mode and make sure that they are close to each other. If necessary, cycle the power on both the TV and the soundbar before doing so.

Another option is to connect the soundbar and the TV directly using cables. Although this is not the ideal solution for most people, it can certainly help if you are not able to connect with Bluetooth.

The real key to having this work properly is to use the highest quality HDMI cable that you possibly can. Don’t use an older cable or one that you pulled off of another electronic device. By a high-quality new cable.

After you can get the TV and soundbar connected with the cable, it may be easier for them to recognize each other through Bluetooth.

Hisense Soundbar is Not Loud Enough

When a Hisense soundbar is not loud enough, it can affect how much you are enjoying watching TV and movies. How can you fix the problem?

The most common reason that a Hisense soundbar is experiencing low volume is that the connected device has the volume turned down. Although we want to adjust the volume with the soundbar, we want to ensure that it is turned up to full on the TV or other electronic device that is connected to the soundbar.

Be careful when you are making this adjustment because it can affect how quickly the soundbar sound goes up. You might find that it goes up to an uncomfortable level, so be prepared to turn it down quickly.

If necessary, you will have to unplug the soundbar to adjust the volume on the TV directly. Sometimes, the TV volume will turn down automatically or if you make some adjustments that are not associated with the volume. Anytime the volume of the soundbar is low, you should try that first.

Hisense Soundbar No Sound

Have you been having a problem with your Hisense soundbar where no sound is coming out? The solution is often easier than most people think.

A common reason why there is no sound coming out of a Hisense soundbar is that the mute has been turned on. Check the remote control and try to unmute the soundbar. You should also try to unmute any electronic device, such as the TV that is connected to the soundbar.

Another reason why you may be having a problem getting any sound out of the soundbar is that the HDMI cable is not connected properly. If you recently moved the soundbar, you may have accidentally unplugged it from one of the ports.

If, after checking the port, you are still experiencing the problem, you can inspect the cable for any visible damage. If necessary, replace the cable with a new one.

Hisense Soundbar Keeps Turning Off

If your Hisense soundbar continues to turn off randomly, there may be a way to fix the problem.

In most cases, a soundbar will turn off randomly because it is not getting a proper audio signal. If a cable is loose or some other connection is not working properly, the soundbar will turn off because it is no longer detecting the signal from the other device.

One thing that you can do is to connect the soundbar properly and then turn the volume up to maximum on the connected device. As long as it is hearing the sound from the device, you can adjust the volume on the soundbar correctly.
