Yep, the Ethernet lights on the port don’t light up either. Looks like it’s stuck booting up and nothing responds until you actually boot up.
Ah - not very promising then - may be they'll find you a replacement a little quicker under the circumstances. Polite but very disappointed email?

Spoke on the phone, they were surprised and didn’t seem to know why it happened. Maybe my particular unit.

So I’ve just sold the bezel that I had to add to my basket to get the deal on Curry’s for £77. Happy with that as it brings the total for the Soundbar to under £600 which seems a bargain :)

Put it on eBay at a starting price of £40 and would have taken that. Also did pretty well on the 2017 Shield. Bought for £125 with the game controller. Sold it without the controller for £148. Bonkers! Just did a 99p no reserve auction. There was loads of interest. My 2019 one only cost £199.

Anyone know when this will be back in stock in the UK?

You just have to be patient. It seems to to go in a cycle of stock in every month and then sells out quick.

Coming back from vacation. My jbl doesn’t work anymore. The led screen is buggy and I have no sound. How to hard reset ? ? I don’t think it can fix the clipping screen

Well I'm not sure there is much troubleshooting that can be done. I'd pull ALL cables, leave off for a short while then re-connect with fingers crossed.

The most you appear to be able to do is a restore to default settings:

9. RESTORE FACTORY SETTINGS By restoring the default settings defined at factories. you remove all your personalized settings from the soundbar. • On the soundbar, press and hold "Power On" and "Source" for more than 10 seconds. → “ ” is displayed. → The soundbar shows “ ” and “ ” and then, goes to standby mode.

Edit > cut/paste has removed half the text symbols, best take a look at section 9 in the manual

The bar works again but the screen has some dead area. For exemple i see VOL ‘2 instead of 12. The lower half of the number 1 is clipping

can I get a warranty for this ? The led is bugging on some place for few days (we can see only half the 1 for 10 ). It was perfect before

You probably could but it depends if your happy if everything else is working. I would probably assess ,if it was me, is it was worth the hassle of a change over vs the quality of the sound product your getting.

Called jbl. Need to send it back for repair. Which means no sound for a long time. I’ll wait a bit more maybe the panel will wake up 😅😅

Got my bar today and I’m very happy, watched Blade Runner 2049 in Atmos and it was amazing! It was like watching the movie in the cinema again.

Most folk have had some success selling on or you can return if you bought online.

Something odd has happened. I'm not getting any dialogue from watching anything with surround sound, only the the score from the film/show.

The factory reset seems to have worked. Not sure what happened there. I've also given up on the calibration as it fails every time.

Just read the trustedreviews review for the Bar 9.1 and can honestly say the reviewer is more confused than scoby doo. Essentially says it's the closest soundbar to an actual physical Dolby atmos system yet still manages to find enough reasons to say it's not even worth 4 stars.

If you make a soundbar that's mediocre for movies but good for music you'll get a much more positive review than the other way round.

Yea, I read this as well and thought the same as you.
