How to Reset a Vizio Sound Bar

Visio Sound Bars provides excellent audio but there are times they do not perform perfectly. There are several reasons why you would have to restart your Vizio sound bar. The most common are:

1. Connectivity issues can arise when using wireless connections such as Bluetooth or WiFi.

2. Flashing lights on the sound bar indicate that there is an issue with the settings you may previously have entered. This problem can only be solved by the resetting option.
