Soundbar fault or poltergeist?

Hi,

I have. JVC soundbar which has suddenly started switching itself off and on and switching between the source options without the remote or unit being touched. I can't fathom what's causing it. This morning I must have switched it on or changed the source a dozen times in a period of about 20 minutes before I gave up and put the radio on. It was the same the night before.


It's connected to the JVC telly via HDMI and I have a NOW TV stick plugged into the telly.


Do I need a new soundbar or an exorcist?

Try disconnecting it from the TV and see if it still does it.
If it does check it's remote and the unit itself for a stuck-down button or liquid spillage.
If it doesn’t try a different HDMI cable.

So far I've tried everything but a new cable so that must be my next port of call. I did wonder about the remote which has never been the best but even using the various buttons on the unit itself it doesn't make any difference.
