Problems With Samsung Subwoofer

Subwoofer Not Turning On

If your subwoofer isn’t working, then it’s likely that there is an issue with the power or power supply.

Make sure that the power cord is correctly connected to the subwoofer and at the wall supply. If power is available, the sub will show a standby light to show that it’s receiving power to the device.

If there’s still no light, turn it off at the power supply and unplug it from the wall. Allow it to sit for a few seconds and then try again with the same approach as previously.

If the subwoofer is still not showing any light, it could mean there’s an issue with the power supply. To test this, use another electrical device that you know is working well and plug it into the wall outlet. If the other device doesn’t receive any power, then it could be that the wall outlet has an issue. If this other device does have power and works correctly, this could mean your subwoofer has a technical issue and you’ll need to contact Samsung and request a service.
