Please don't tell me Harman actually hard-locked BT in ON status always? That would be pathetic choice for such a firm.

How to resolve it?
I opened soundbar and disconnected the bluetooth antenna (on the right side of the motherboard).
I don't see anymore SB26 on my phone in the bluetooth-list.

Thank you Timur 'Ka for the guide. I followed your steps and it worked perfectly. To anyone having trouble with neighbors connecting to your soundbar SB26 just follow Timur 'Ka post #61 and it works perfectly. I can finally use my soundbar again.

I guess it's an old thread but I maybe that 1% of the people still using the SB26 and honestly, I just want a center channel with a sub from my soundbars and I think it's good enough. Was never sold for the reflection and atmos through one speaker.
So this is my secondary system the primary being a 7.2.2 in my theater room. A couple of months back, the woofer had an issue with the psu and it was replaced by HK guys
Now the soundbar switches off while playing at louder than normal volumes (started about 1 month back). Not to say I haven't played it louder than before but again, I miss playing music loud through it. Whenever I make it a bit loud, it just turns off completely (not even the orange light). The hack is to unplug the cable from the wall or the adapter and reinsert. On the 2nd - 5th attempt the orange power light comes on and it can be played. After the first time it decides to act up, the problem occurs more frequently, at times every few seconds going completely off. I've tried different 2 pronged cables from the wall to the adapter and also tried multiple sockets. The SB 26 has only the optical cable in use from the TV. What could be the reason for this. Anyone else who's faced this issue before?
