Customer Question
Hi - we have...

Hi - we have a Samsung Smart TV with Klipsch sound bar - today, the sound has disappeared for normal cable tv but works fine for netflix - any clue what happened - our issue is we have 3 remotes to work this tv

Technician's Assistant: What is your speaker connected to or paired with? Are all cables connected tightly?

The bar is connected to the TV - all cables are connected properly

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a different audio source (e.g. another TV, computer, or CD)?

This bar is mounted so we can't try another tv

ok we followed your directions - no sound for cable channels
Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 2 months ago

Do you usually need to do something with the soundbar remote in order to change from cable to dvd to netflix? or is that automatic?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago

Now you are going to reboot the other equipment:

-unplug the Tv POWER cord

-unplug the soundbar POWER cord

-wait a minute, plug them back in, power on as needed.
