  1. I connected my new Onn 36″ 5.1 soundbar to my Win10 Dell Gaming PC (Inspiron 5676) via bluetooth expecting that I could configure for 5.1. PC is HDMI-connected to TV (ARC) for monitor. Room configuration on Win sound settings only provides Mono or Stereo options for bluetooth soundbar. What am I doing wrong in my setup?


  3. my onn soundbar is not working with the subwoofer how can i fix if? i have try all this,Pairing the subwoofer
    Pair manually: Long press mute on the remote for 7s, then long press pairing button on subwoofer for 3s, soundbar’s current LED indicator and subwoofer’s mixed-color(mixed by red and blue) LED will quick blink until be paired each other.

    1. I have the same problem my inn soundbar doesn’t connect to the subwoofer and i.tried all this process but instead of saying sub link mine says unlink after a while

  4. My sound bar will not turn up pass 3 when i am watching tv but it works fine when i use the bluetooth can anyone help me out

  5. My sub for my 36” onn sound bar wont work the small speakers play but not the sub cant find anything on how to fix it

  6. I purchased an ONN 36” 5.1 soundbar with subwoofer and 2 small speakers. When plugged in the top input to subwoofer from speaker has a crackle noise. Have tried switching both speakers as well as both cords so I know it’s the subwoofer top input plug. Any ideas on how to fix?

  7. I have the 2.0 mini sound bar. Hooked up with the optical. Have a green light but no sound. Help

  8. Did you try to change the setting on the TV itself? You need to find the surround sound instead of the TV’s speaker.

  9. I just got the 36 in onn. Soundbar 2.1. When I move the cursor through my TV while on YouTube or even Netflix, it says ‘Talk’ each time a new selection is highlighted, this is very annoying, how do you turn it off?

    1. I’m having the same problem. I have been searching for days and can’t find anything about it. I’m about to return it and get a refund

  10. Is there way to turn the soundbar power on automatically when I turn the tv power on ? I am currently using optical , thank you

  11. Sound bar works-woofer works but side speakers don’t. Redid bluetooth between soundbar and woofer. They first worked with initial hookup-but not now.

  12. If you are having no sound and are using the provided optical cable, you need to make sure the small, metal pin is not INSIDE of the plug. If this is the case, there will not be a clear connection and no sound will come through. You may need to use a small object (such as tweezers) to GENTLY bend the pin back toward you so it goes on the outside of the optical plug as you insert it. Only a small amount of pressure is needed to do this.

  13. Waste of money….Not worth the purchase – won’t connect via HDMI-ARC or Optical cable.

  14. My onn 36″ 5.1 Sound bar is connected via optical cable to my wall mount TV. My TV is connected via WIFI and not Satelite. My sound bar will work with some channels and not other. For instance, it will not work with Prime Video but will work on the CW channel. How do I make it work on all channels?

  15. my onn soundbar squeaked sounds like a microphone that’s to close to a speaker how can o fix this I already bought new wires still doing it?

      1. I am having the same issue, not sure what you mean by your response. My system is set up to only my Surround sound, not any other speakers. Mine squeaks like its feedback. Through the Small speakers, not the woofer.

  16. I bought the 5,2,1 sound bar and woofer $300.00 would like to find the Co. web site to download the Demo they use at the [email protected] stores it might be stored on a usb stick on their demo set up that makes the sound 3d or go behind & around you as the demo plays. Anybody know where I can get this file? Dish Network doesn’t broadcast movies in Atomas as of yet.

  17. I can’t get my soundbar to connect to my subwoofer. I’ve been trying everything I read online and nothing is working help plz?!?!?!?!

  18. I purchased the 36″ 5.1 surround system. I set it up, the subwoofer & 2 small speakers are working but the surround bar is not. No sound or nothing is coming from it. It has speakers so I imagine sound should come from it. I did what the instructions indicated. Don’t know what I did wrong. I used the HDMI ARC connection.

  19. I have the 36″ 5.1. it automatically goes to standby after like 4 minutes when i leave the room or something. Is there a way to adjust that to a longer time period before it goes to standby?

  20. my system does not work with any connection I try anyone having th[s problem?

  21. Bought Oon 5.1 soundbar w/ surround speakers. Using HDMI I connected my PS5 to soundbar, then soundbar to TV. When I’m using headphones the soundbar goes into standby mode and I can’t see the TV and have to turn it back on. Is there a way to disable the automatic standby?

  22. My model 100015717 while listening to music turned off the speakers and the subwoofer I could not get them to work from. New

    Mi modelo 100015717 mientras escuchaba música se apago los altavoces y el subwoofer no he podido hacerlos funcionar de. Nuevo

  23. The woofer was heard the first day I bought it and not the next day, I have been doing what the pairing manual tells me manually and nothing. I am going to have to return it to you.

    El woofer se me oyó el primer día que lo compré y al otro no ,he estado haciendo lo que me dice el manual de emparejamiento manualmente y nada.voy a tener que devolverle

It says the soundbar and subwoofer will pair automatically when both are turned on this is no true.Does any body know how to solve this problem?The 5.1 surround sound isn’t worth a crap without the subwoofer and 2 satellite speakers working along with the 36in 5.1 soundbar.
