Just bought a Samsung soundbar hw-q60r about a week ago and connected to. Samsung OLED tv. After a week whenjj b I turn on the soundbar volume starts at zero and increases when I push up but when I release it automatically goes down to zero. We tried the soundbar remote, tv remote all behave the same way.

Hey @Nachog35  ,

I can see that you've got a US model TV.  With Samsung support being localised and this being a European forum (the English language part is supported by the Samsung UK & Ireland team, for example), we're limited in what we can do for you in terms of direct support.

Have you been in touch with Samsung US about this issue, or shared it on the Samsung US Community (https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/TVs/ct-p/get-help-tvs)  to see if others in the US are reporting the same?

Its October 2021 and I too an experiencing the same issue, firstly an automatically increasing volume then following advice to power off/on and holding down the +/- concurrently I now have an automatically decreasing volume.  It unbelievable to me that this issue has not been resolved or the product removed from sale. I am not keen on opening the back and disconnecting the ribbon cable as my quite reasonable expectation is that a product that is six months old should not fail in this way.  Can Samsung please contact me and advise how to get this product replaced, thank you

Hey Peter, I was experiencing the same problem a few weeks ago. I contacted Samsung and they organised an engineer visit to repair the soundbar - the whole circuit board inside was replaced after two visits from the engineer. This fixed the problem, but this morning upon turning my television on the volume problem started again. The volume refuses to turn up and keeps resetting back to zero. My television is also connected via optical cable as a few posters have commented. This must be some sort of software issue rather than firmware! I have seen people commenting also to remove the ribbon connecting the hard keys but I'm unsure whether this constitutes voiding the warranty. I have owned the soundbar for less than 6 months also - pretty unbelievable that this can't be resolved either by way of update or complete internal hardware replacement. I'm honestly considering just chucking it away, very dissapointing. Soundbar model Samsung HW-T550

Hey I just want to share my solution to this problem. 

I had a similar problem: the volume of my HW Q950T automatically dropped to zero after switching on, which makes the soundbar unusable. First I did a hard reset of the soundbar (hold down "+" and "-" at the same time for 5 seconds) - no effect and the problem still persisted. Out of sheer desperation, I decided to reset all devices in my entertainment system that are directly or indirectly connected to the soundbar and use it to the factory settings:

  • Cable box - no effect
  • XBox - no effect
  • Apple TV 4K (2021) - voila, the soundbar problem has been fixed.

So, the culprit in my case was the Apple TV 4K and a factory reset of the soundbar and the Apple TV 4K fixed the problem with my soundbar.

Cheers

@Mortanon This fixed my issue, and this is the only place I found this solution! Thank you so much!!! As soon as I read your issue had to do with the Apple TV 4K, I had a feeling this might be worth a last shot before calling tech support. This saved me the huge headache of potential back and forths with them. You are the best!
