How to fix Vizio Sound Bar Flashing White Lights
Typically, this problem isn’t related to any hardware issue, so you don’t have to worry too much. But it can get pretty annoying at some point, so make sure to fix it as soon as you can. Here are some ways you can try out to fix the problem.
Fixing the Bluetooth connection
This isn’t applicable for all Vizio sound bars, as not every sound bar will have a Bluetooth connection. But if yours has Bluetooth, then you can follow along with this method. So, when the Bluetooth connection stays unpaired or not connected to any device, you will see the white lights flashing.
To solve this issue, you can connect a device with Bluetooth to your sound bar. Or you can hold down the Bluetooth button on your sound bar for 5 seconds. This should stop the white light from flashing.
Choosing the right input
If you are in the wrong input or source, the sound bar will warn through the white flashing light. So, once you set the input to the right source, the flashing should stop.
To fix this issue, you hold down the input and volume up button for 5 seconds. This way, the sound bar will catch up on the default input source, and the white light will turn off.
Turning off demo mode
The flashing white light issue may also occur if the sound bar is in demo mode. To fix that issue, you can turn off the demo mode of the sound bar.
There are two ways to do so. You can either use the official Vizio app or use the physical button on the sound bar. All you have to do is hold down the input and Bluetooth button at once for 5 seconds, and you should see all the lights flashing 4 times. This indicates you are getting out of demo mode.
Resetting sound bar
If nothing else works out for you, you have to do a factory reset on the sound bar. This is fairly simple to do on a sound bar. The best way to reset is by referring back to the user manual of your sound bar.
To factory reset some sound bars, you have to hold down the input and volume up button. And some of them reset with input and volume down. This mostly depends on the model you have, and you get this on the instruction manual. So, this shouldn’t be hard.
In short, getting rid of the Vizio sound bar flashing white lights isn’t that difficult. Once you figure out the reason, you can do it yourself without any help at all. Also, it’s very quick to do too.
