I am trying, but my Onn Soundbar is not working; how do I fix it?

There are a few reasons that your Onn Soundbar cannot function. The first step is to determine whether the power supply is low; if found, then give it a recommended power supply (Check manual for power specifications). Check the wired connectivity of the Onn Soundbar; if wires are loosely connected, properly attach them. It is possible that the Soundbar remote batteries are not charged or that the cells are weak, due to which the Soundbar does not capture any signals from the remote. If so, check the remote battery and try to charge or change them.

How Can I Connect Onn Soundbar to My Roku TV?

For accurate sound quality, you must have adequately connected your Onn Soundbar to your Roku TV. You can also follow these steps to fix the problem of pairing your Soundbar with other TV brands, such as Samsung, TCL, and LG. We recommend you read the included manual (of Soundbar) for additional information if you need a different step.

Establish The Right Connections

There are two Options:

  1. HDMI input labeled ARC Option
  2. Optical Cable Option

So, if your Roku TV supports both HDMI and Optical connectivity options, then you have both options so that you can choose one. However, some Roku TVs lack Optical connection opportunities and feature only the HDMI input option (Like old Roku TVs). So choose one that is available.

HDMI input

Did you know how HDMI works? Well, it is abbreviated as ‘High-Definition Multimedia Interface’ and works as transmitting video and audio signals between Onn Soundbar and Roku TV or between various digital devices. So, if you use an HDMI connection, the sound from your Roku TV will go to your Soundbar. So follow the steps below for an HDMI connection.

Accessory Requires

It would be best to have a good quality HDMI cable like AmazonBasics HDMI Cable (18Gbps, 4K/60Hz).

Follow The Steps For HDMI Option

  • Find HDMI ARC Input on your Roku TV.
  • Connect the HDMI cable on one end to the TV HDMI ARC port.
  • Now connect the other end to the Onn Soundbar HDMI port.

Follow The Steps For Optical Option

Find Two Words: “Digital Audio” and “Optical”. These words indicate Optical input, so after finding them on the TV, connect your Optical cable, one to the TV and the other To your Onn Soundbar optical input.

How To Set Up Roku Remote: For this purpose, you have to go to Roku TV settings and enable CEC, so once it is enabled, your Roku TV remote will start working.

  • Go to Home.
  • Scroll & Find Settings.
  • Press OK to Select the settings.

  • Now Scroll & find CEC (Control other devices)
  • Press OK to Select the CEC option.
  • Select ARC (HDMI 1) and Press OK.

You have successfully enabled CEC control once all steps have been followed correctly.

Power Up

Now it’s time to give power to Onn Roku Smart Soundbar to make it run. For this, you have to connect one end of the power cable to the soundbar power input and the other end to the wall outlet. Add remote cells also.

Final Steps

  • Go to Roku TV and ‘Find Network
  • Choose your Wireless Network.
  • Automatically, the Soundbar gets the latest software.
  • By following the on-screen instructions, you can activate your Onn Soundbar.
