Soundbars Are Sometimes Reset For The Following Reasons

  • You’re attempting to replace an old remote with a newer one because the old one no longer has extended functions or buttons that need to be altered.
  • The sound quality degrades every time you use it; the only way to restore it is to reset it.
  • You’ve changed its factory settings and need to reset it back to its original settings.

What is a Soft reset of the soundbar?

A soft reset is an act of restarting a device. It’s a good choice for infrequent users who only want to use the product occasionally. Because there is no need to pair your Bluetooth devices again, it has the benefit of not losing any settings and forcing you to repair your devices.

What is a Hard reset of the soundbar?

A hard reset, often known as restoring the device to its manufacturer-preset settings, is one way of returning devices to their original condition. This deletes any user information, settings, and Bluetooth-linked devices and restores the device to its original condition when it was new out of the box. As a result, a hard reset is sometimes known as a factory reset.
