Unable to control vizio S5430W soundbar


Recommended Posts

I have an lg 65sm9000 . It is attached to a S5430W Vizio soundbar via the optical cable. Although the sound bar operates with my TV, I'm unable to control it with the LG magic remote. I  cannot power it on or off and I .cannot control the volume with the magic remote. I have to use the vizio sound bar remote. Does anyone know a way to remedy this difficulty?

You need to remove the optical cable and connect an HDMI cable from the tv’s HDMI ( ARC) port to the soundbar’s ARC port.

After doing that turn on LG Simplink in the settings. Then you will be able to control the soundbar from the magic remote.

You can also add the device using device connector -> add device.

Simplink is basically HDMI CEC that allows control of connected HDMI devices.

Optical cable is just an audio output cable and cannot be used to control the other device.

Get a decent HDMI cable.

Karan, thank you for your response.

I tried your solution, but for some reason, it didn't work for me. I removed the optical cable and connected the HDMI cable to the TV's HDMI (ARC) port and the soundbar's ARC port. Also,

via the SOUND settings menu, I set the Sound Out to HDMI (ARC). According to the settings display, this also automatically turned on the LG Simpliink. Unfortunately, something is amiss because I could get no sound from the sound bar.The volume buttons on the magic remote now controlled the  the soundbar volume indicator (which was not the case before the connection change), but no sound was produced.

Any further suggestions?

Probably your sound output is not set right. Go to settings and change audio output to auto. It might be set to PCM or something else.

if still doesn’t work after changing to auto, restart the tv and soundbar fro mains.

still not, then press the “AD” button on the magic remote while HDMI 2/3 whichever is ARC is selected as source. You’ll get a menu with power button. Click that and the soundbar will power off. Then after 2 mins do the same to power on again.

These should work definitely.

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      I brought LG LED 124cm 49UK7500  UHD/4K from India to UK. Will the TV support UK TV channels such as BBC and others through a TV Aerial cable or do i need to buy a FreeView box?

      This London Craft Week, visitors to The Conran Shop’s Chelsea and Marylebone locations will be greeted by a feast for the eyes, or perhaps, more accurately, a ‘Forest of Eyes.’ Delivering vivid colors and infinite contrast via millions of self-lit pixels, LG OLED evo TVs will play an important role in stunning, new art installations created by London-based multidisciplinary artist, Yinka Ilori, for leading lifestyle retailer, the Conran Shop.*

      Yinka Ilori’s distinctive work will shine out from the stores’ large display windows, communicating hope and optimism through the artist’s bold, joyful palette and signature use of pattern. Introducing his ‘Forest of Eyes’ theme, the installations will comprise a series of eye-shaped boxes, made from timber and alive with color, resembling blossoming rainbow-hued flowers.
      Within each box will be a series of smaller eye-shaped forms, a mirrored floor, and an LG OLED evo TV that blurs the line between real and digital with its immaculate picture quality. The vibrant, accurate colors and deep, inky blacks of LG’s self-lit TVs will accurately reproduce Ilori’s colorific creations on screen, preserving his artistic intentions while seamlessly blending with the installations’ physical elements to help capture the attention – and imagination – of passersby.

LG OLED evo technology is the exclusive combination of the company’s cutting-edge picture algorithms and the α9 Gen5 AI Processor. Applied to LG’s 2022 G2 series (LG OLED evo Gallery Edition) and C2 series models, OLED evo elevates the ability of the TVs’ self-lit pixels to deliver superior clarity, detail, contrast and color, for images that practically jump off the screen.

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.
