SX-HTE80 No Sound


Novice Member
Hi all, I have a TX-42AS520B TV, and I have purchased a SX-HTE80 sound bar. I've connected them via HDMI(to the ARC Out/HDMI in specs as described). Viera Link is on. The audio switches to Home Theatre mode when turned on. The Volume increases on the sound bar with the TV. But there is no audio output from the soundbar. I've searched through the settings for hours to no avail, at a complete loss, about to return the soundbar, any advice welcome. Thanks.

Are there any other inputs on the soundbar you can use to rule out the fact it might be faulty. If you can connect something to either a phono or 3.5mm input on the soundbar then you'll know a bit more. If you get nothing from one or the other of those, box it up and send it back.
