Hello everyone,

I've spent over two hours chatting to Samsung Technical support who are no closer to resolving a solution - all that I need to do is to get the power adaptor further away from the soundbar.

They can't 

1 - confirm if it's an ordinary two core cable that I can simply cut and extend

2 - tell me what pin sizes are used so that I can get an extension made up

3 - contact Head Office and ask for specification details

Needless to say it's been like banging my head against a brick wall

I figured out a solution! I spent way too long on this problem.

The HW-s800b and HW-s801b soundbars require a 3.0x1.1m DC connector pushing at least 19v/30w power. The power adapter that came with my soundbar (which I assume is the same for all) was a 3.0x1.1mm DC 19v/60w adapter that only went about 5ft from the TV before having a big brick attached to it, which was frustrating to hide.

I could not find a 10ft+ 3.0x1.1mm DC power adapter at all, so I opted to combine some parts to make an equivalent over USB-C.

I purchased the following 4 items, which powered the sound bar and provided some choice in length, thinness and avoided Samsung Support entirely:

I hope that helps! It works just like the original power supply, fits in a cable wall sleeve nicely, and shouldn't be too budget-breaking (although the total solution cost about $60, not exactly great). I ran the cable through a wall sleeve under the Frame soundbar and then under a rug to get behind the couch, out of sight.

Enjoy!

(if I could find one) would a 3.0x1.1mm male to female cable work here with the supplied psu?

I just want to share my solution. I had the exact same problem. The DC cord from the adapter being too short.

I tried all solutions mentioned here, converters, USB-C extension cords  etc. from AliExpress. Couldn't find a working solution, so after countles hours i tried the most simple solution. Cut and extend the existing wire.

Cut the DC wire and use a regular wire you would use for any electronic to extend. It works just fine. Also use some Heat Shrink Tubing to get it done correctly.

Hi there,

 

Any chance you can give me more information on what cable would be suitable to buy for following your instruction?

 

Thanks! 🙏

Hi,

I used an ordinary 2-conductor extension cord like you would use for a regular lamp.
Like this: https://www.amazon.com/Conductors-Resistant-Electrical-Extension-Lighting/dp/B08FMMZHQ6?th=1

Where I connected the wires, I also used heat shrink tubing to get it properly assembled.

Works like a charm and no need to use all kinds of converters :smiling-face:

Just get longer cable the same as the one you have from Amazon or eBay,. I used the European wire to extend my TV cable, and have had no issues. I doubt you could lengthen the power to soundbar wire though
