Check the firmware version

Your firmware may already be up to date, especially if you have a new Sound Bar. If the version number is 1.195 or higher, you do not need to update.
If you're not sure, it's easy to check which version of firmware you have:

  1. Turn on this unit and make sure that it is in a normal startup state.
  2. Connect Subwoofer. If needed, refer to the Operating Instructions about how to connect Subwoofer.
    Note: A different software version is displayed depending on whether Subwoofer is connected or not.
  3. On the remote control, press the SOUND FIELD button until Stream information is displayed on the screen, then press the (volume) - button continuously (Switches to Stream informationSound fieldVoice modeNight modeSoftware version).
  4. Scroll to see the Version information.
  5. If the software version is not the latest (1.195), an update is needed. If the version number is 1.195 or higher, you already have the most recent firmware version.

Notes on update operation

Incorrectly pressing the (Power), (BLUETOOTH), and + (volume) buttons at the same time may result in the activation of some of those features, depending on how the buttons were pressed. Here is how to deal with those circumstances:

  • The BLUETOOTH function may be set to ON or OFF by pressing the (Power) and (BLUETOOTH) buttons. After displaying BT POWER in the display window, OFF or ON is displayed. In this case, the setting has been changed, so press this button again to return to the original setting. Alternatively, the BLUETOOTH function can be turned on by performing an initialization.
  • Pressing the (BLUETOOTH) and + (volume) buttons simultaneously without pressing the (Power) may have caused a manual link operation of the subwoofer, in which a SECURE LINK message is displayed in the window, and LINK flashes. If this happens, press the (BLUETOOTH) and + (volume) buttons simultaneously again to cancel the link operation.
