How To Reset Vizio Sound Bar

Vizio has always been known for its high-quality TVs and home theater systems. Now they also offer some of the best soundbars in the market.

Although, as with any piece of technology there may be times when you have a problem with it. 

How To Reset Vizio Sound Bar

Usually, common technology problems are often fixed by resetting the device. The same can be done for soundbars.

Sometimes with soundbars, you might find the quality of the sound is not as expected or has decreased. In this case, the first recommendation many would make is to reset the soundbar. 

If you are not sure how to go about resetting a Vizio soundbar, then you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we are going to walk you through the steps to resetting a Vizio soundbar. 

Resetting Vizio Soundbar

Resetting the Vizio soundbar has never been easier. The easiest way to reset the Vizio soundbar is to turn the power off for ten seconds and then turn the power back on.

However, this will only help with basic problems and is not a detailed reset of a Vizio soundbar. 

If the problem you are experiencing has not stopped, then you can do a more detailed reset, which would require you to press some more buttons.

To do a more detailed reset on a Vizio soundbar you need to press and hold down the ‘Input’ button and the ‘Volume Up’ button for around 15 seconds. It is important that you press these buttons at the same time. 

Most people often look for a reset button when trying to reset a device. Reset buttons are incredibly helpful as we don’t have to remember a sequence of buttons every time we wish to reset the device.

Unfortunately, the Vizio soundbar does not have a reset button. In order to activate the reset mode, you must press the buttons in the correct order. 

Resetting A Vizio Soundbar Remote

There are times when the problems you are experiencing with a Vizio soundbar are not from the soundbar itself but the remote. Since the remote is what helps to control the Vizio soundbar, this can be especially frustrating. 

When this happens there is a way to reset the Vizio soundbar remote. To do this all you have to do is take the batteries out of the remote.

Then you should press every button on the remote itself twice. Insert new batteries into the remote and then turn the remote back on. 

At this point, you should check that the soundbar is working properly. If you discover the actual soundbar is malfunctioning then you need to check the settings.

To do this, press the ‘Setup’ button on your remote. Then click on ‘Reset Audio’. When everything has reset, the LED lights on the bar will blink. 

Resetting A Vizio Soundbar Without Remote

Sometimes we lose remotes, especially if they are really small. If you have lost your remote or don’t have it with you and need to reset a Vizio soundbar, don’t fret it can still be done.

Although, a quick tip is that if you have lost the Vizio soundbar remote, it also works with universal remotes. 

In fact, it is actually quite easy to reset the Vizio soundbar without the remote. To reset the Vizio soundbar you need to press and hold down the ‘Bluetooth’ button and the ‘Volume Down’ button.

These buttons need to be held down for 15 seconds or until all the LED lights cease flashing. Make sure that you press these two buttons at the same time for the Vizio soundbar to be reset. 

How To Reset Vizio Soundbar To Factory Settings

There are often problems with electrical devices that will not go away, no matter how many times we turn the device on and off again. In this case, you should perform a factory reset on the device.

A factory reset will restore the device to its original settings. This means that any personal information stored on the device will be erased. This means the setting you have changed on your soundbar will have been removed. 

Performing a factory reset is really easy, all you have to do is press and hold down the ‘Bluetooth’ button and the ‘Volume Down’ button.

These buttons should be held down until all of the lights on the device go off, which usually takes 15 seconds. 

Final Thoughts 

The Vizio soundbar is an excellent choice for anyone who wants great audio quality. However, sometimes the soundbar will not work correctly.
