HW-C450 not starting up, very slow response

by mikesamsung / December 31, 2010 9:04 AM PST

I Purchased the HW-C450 AudioBar two weeks ago and it worked perfect for the first 4 days but it has stopped working... it will turn on the light sequence goes on the it says hello and this is where it starts. It will stay on "HELLO" for three minutes the it will disappear for a few seconds and the bits of the word "Digital 2"( my selected input, ive tried digital 1 also with another optical cable) will appear dim then start to go bright there is no sound if i try change the volume it takes a while then bits of "VOL 06" or whatever its on start to appear and stay for about 10 minutes then it goes back to displaying the same way as it did on start up "digital 2". ive unplugged the unit (subwoffer as-well just in case)for a weekend and the problem is still happening... if i turn the unit off it will take a few seconds but then it turns off as if there was nothing wrong. Any advice if its something simple or should i bring it back to where i bought it?
