Samsung HW-Q90R - How to Factory Reset


Novice Member

A really simple question which hours of googling have failed me.

How do I reset my Samsung HW-Q90r soundbar?

Lots of results on other models, but not this one.

Thanks loads in advance.

With power off, press and hold volume up and down buttons together until int appears.

doesn't work on mine.

Just to d/check, are you referring to the buttons on the remote or on the bar itself?
On the bar. I have the q80r. It's the same bar as q90 but without rears. And it works on mine.

They are definitely different because my Q90r won't reset using that combo either.
Just tried on mine...powered off and held down + and - buttons on soundbar and nothing happened. So powered back on and this time I held the + and - buttons and the soundbar reset so looks like you need the bar powered on while pressing the buttons.

I meant to come back and write this the other day but it slipped my mind but I also figured this out as well. Yhe soundbar must be on and +&- held together for reset. Didn't fix my issue of the soundbar not turning on automatically anymore but did do the reset as it should.
