Question

Soundbar

Hi our samsung soundbar keeps losing volume when we try to turn it up or down and the only nois3 we get is a muffled sound from the subwoofer. I took it to be fixed but the guy said it worked perfect so couldn't find a fault so when we got home it was fine all night but has since started losing volume again can anyone help?

Subwoofers don't product speech.

That speaker is for low frequency effects and should be muffled in how it sounds.

But the loss of volume points to a real failure so check your warranty and make the call.

Yes I know that I was just wondering why volume keeps turning on and off especially when we turn hole up or down it's out of warranty thought it could be something loose inside circuit board? We took it to a guy but it worked fine for him for 2 days

I hate to tell this.

But the makers rarely diagnose these to find out what's going on. The cost to do so is more than replacing a board or entire bar. The makers don't publish schematics most of the time and with a service manual from 12 to 15 bucks which the shop might change double you are getting close to a new bar when you add in the counter fee. Here that is 150 bucks so sound bars rarely if even go in for repair unless in warranty.

It could be the source

If somebody tried your soundbar for 2 days, maybe he was using a different source, have you tried to test your bar with another device (to determine if you lose the sound level too?
