Soundbar 700 No Sound

Hi all,

 

I’m currently using the Soundbar 700, surround rear speakers and the bass module 700 with my Sony AG8 TV. 

It’s been stable for the last 8 months other than on one occasion where I did a factory reset on everything. Yesterday I turned it on and no audio was coming out.

It is connected via HDMI ARC. 

 

I tested another source on the TV other than sky and nothing came out. I played music via the app on my mobile and it worked perfectly. I have unplugged everything and left it off for 10 minutes with still no luck. 

My soundbar firmware is running v7.0.11-7872. 

It would be great if there are some other suggestions. I want to avoid connecting via the optical cable but I saw one old firmware update stopped the soundbar working and solution was to do this.

 

Thanks all

Re: Soundbar 700 no audio with ARC

This is a very exciting product. My toddler recently disabled the soundbar's microphone, and the same day ARC audio started working reliably. Airplay, however, stopped working. I love it!
