"Check Subwoofer" usually means that the sound bar and subwoofer is not paired together. Before you try moving the subwoofer closer to your sound bar, you could try the following steps below to re-pair the sound bar with the subwoofer.
1) Put your sound bar to standby mode.
2) Hold the "Mute" button on your sound bar remote for 5 seconds.
3) You should be seeing "ID SET" on your sound bar.
4) Turn on your sound bar when the subwoofer blue LED starts to blink.
5) The subwoofer blue LED should be solid after a while.
If there is still no connection (subwoofer blue LED blinking) after 2 minutes, you could try moving the subwoofer closer to the sound bar, as interference from other 2.4GHz devices could have disturbed the connection between this two devices, as they operate using the 2.4GHz band.
HDMI Cable (HDMI ARC)
1) Able to control sound bar's volume with the TV's remote.
2) Able to turn on and off the sound bar together with the TV.
1) Not able to control sound bar's volume with the TV's remote.
2) Not able to turn on and off the sound bar together with the TV.
Do note that even though you have an HDMI cable, you'd still need an HDMI-ARC compliant TV so that all the features above would work. So everything would be useless using an HDMI cable to connect both devices when the TV is not HDMI-ARC compliant.
HDMI-ARC : High Definition Media Interface - Audio Return Channel
- HDMI-CEC : High Definition Media Interface - Consumer Electronics Control
When you move the subwoofer closer to your sound bar, try re-pairing the sound bar and subwoofer together again.
You could look at this thread that I created almost a month ago : http://www.avsforum.com/t/1502461/samsung-hw-f450-subwoofer-constant-disconnection
Hey, how is everyone today? I purchased a new Samsung HW-F450 sound bar/subwoofer package at best buy. I have everything hooked up but getting no sound. I have it hooked to a 50" Samsung DLP TV (HDTV 1080p). It's not a smart tv. My sound bar is hooked throught the aux in to audio jacks. Since my ps3 an directv is using both my HDMI inputs. The sound bar says "TV Ready, check subwoofer". Is there a setting I am missing, what is my best way to utilize this system.
I have this soundbar but I hooked everything up to my TV's 4 HDMI ports then used Optical out from the TV to soundbar. Also the soundbar only has 1 HDMI input so you would need to unplug what's current in the HDMI out on the soundbar because that is for ARC to the TV.
hi, i connected this soundbar to a smarttv samsung 40'' E5500 series i used without any problem with hdmi cable. some days ago, i disconnected cable to connect it on a xbox.
now, i re connected the original cable to tv hdmi port and "hdmi out" port of the soudbar.
tv recognize satellite connected, and if i try to change volume i see the "satellite graphical indicator" isted of the normal volume indicator on tv.
tv option recognize satellite too.
but i hear nothing.
soundbar works, because if i try to play music from bluetooth it works, even if i try to play music from usb key.
hdmi connection seems to works, because tv recognize it and volume sincronization works.
I power on tv, so i power on soundbar, tv change sound source to sound bar, and there is no sound :(
any help? :(
1) If you have a spare HDMI cable lying around or from a working system, take it out temporarily, change it with the sound bar and check if any sound is coming out from your sound bar.
2) Make sure you change your sound bar's input to "D.In", which should change to "TV ARC" automatically by itself if it's connected properly.
3) Make sure you have enabled ARC mode on your television, and have connected the sound bar to the special "HDMI ARC" port on your television.
4) Make sure that your sound bar or television is not put at a very low volume, turn it up abit and check.
However, if there is no sound coming out from your television speakers, it could be your satellite box problem or your HDMI cable connecting your satellite box and television together at fault. You could try this two solutions I have listed below.
1) If you have a spare HDMI cable lying around or from a working system, try changing it with the sound bar and check if any sound is coming out from your television.
3) Try restarting your satellite box and check if there is any sound coming out from your television.
More Information :
As long as an HDMI cable is categorized as "high speed" it will support ARC. Since "standard speed" HDMI cables are hard to find anymore if you have bought your HDMI cable in the last couple of years and its of decent quality its very likely to be "high speed" and therefore ARC capable.
How well ARC works often depends on the order in which the devices are powered on. In most cases the tv should be turned on last.
ARC also depends on the compatibilty of the devices. It will not work with all devices regardless of brand, make, model, year it was made, etc. Since abione has 2 fairly new Samsung devices compatibility is likely not an issue.
