Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you.


I'm sorry to hear about the problems you're having with your Vizio.


If the unit has been unplugged for at least 15 minutes, to allow it to cool and the ventilation slots are clear, then this indicates the output IC of the soundbar is faulty.


This directly drives the speakers and is prone to heat damage. The Bar itself needs service to have this chip replaced by a Sony Service Center.


I can send you the link if you'd like.


If you need further assistance, let me know.
