When connecting a soundbar to a television, consumers frequently encounter a number of issues. Audio breaking off abruptly, lip-sync faults, and surround speakers not working are the most typical problems that require a quick resolution.

The HDMI ports are the source of the majority of issues. HDMI connections were introduced with the intention of merging audio, video, and controls into a single system that would be easier to handle and less troublesome.

But, even for skilled technicians, determining two linked HDMI devices is sometimes a question of guesswork. Furthermore, the more sophisticated a system is, the more likely it is to fail.

Unfortunately, even if you carefully follow the instructions, you may encounter difficulties. There are a few actions you may take to resolve the issue that does not need the purchase of new cables or equipment.

Begin by disconnecting all of the HDMI cords connecting the soundbar to the TV. Turn off both components after the cables have been separated. Turn off the soundbar and TV for a few seconds. Allow enough time for the power cycle to complete.

Connect the HDMI to the output on the soundbar as well as the input on the TV before turning on any components. After that, reconnect the Fire Stick to the Soundbar’s HDMI input.

Switch on the components and double-check the source settings on both. Often, the issue is caused by the wrong source settings. After debugging, you should be able to watch Fire Stick content on your television.

Inspect Cables, and see if there is any damage

In other circumstances, the wires are also damaged. Examine the outside of the wires to check whether this is the source of the problem. While you may believe you can easily tape them up, our staff recommends purchasing new ones to avoid reoccurring problems.

What if Your Soundbar Doesn’t Have ARC?

If you have an old soundbar or one that doesn’t have an ARC for some reason, the procedure is slightly different. While you’ll still need to experiment with the inputs as stated above, you’ll want to plug the Fire TV Stick into the TV rather than the soundbar. The audio will then be managed through the TV, with output to the soundbar through an optical out connection or other audio-out option.
