We lost the remote for home theater system during our last move. Somehow, the sleep timer got activated, even though there is no remote. How do I shut it off again without the remote?


It's a bit weird that the sleep timer keeps coming every time you power up. Have you let it shut itself down by allowing the sleep timer do it? If it still does it then, and there is no button that will cancel it on the unit itself, try pressing them all, then you will to get either a universal remote or see if there is an original. As I don't know the make or model number of your system that is the best answer I can give.

How can I resolve this?


Hi Gary

This can happen infrequently due to either the iPad needing a restart (iPhone 5's and 5s's) have similar issues.

There are two things to try;

1) Turn your samsung sound bar off, and pull out the power cord out of the wall, now this may sound unnecessary but the logic behind that is to have it clear any potential "error code" or crashed script which is powering the bluetooth transmitter in the sound bar. You do this for ca. 60 seconds, 30 will do too but we just want to be sure. Once that is done plug the bar in again and power it on and see if it works now.

2) Restart your iPad, this has the same logic behind as step one, but in this situation i'd like you to turn both off starting with your iPad.

It is not uncommon especially depending on the iOS your running on your iPad for the bluetooth transmitter not to see the bluetooth sources around you.

To turn your ipad off push the sleep/power button at the top right of your ipad for 10-15 seconds. Until you see the swipe to turn off. Let it shut down completely after you swiped it to turn off. (this can take a minute) Once you see the spinning wheel on your ipad disappear start with unplugging your Samsung Sound Bar. As in step one follow the same procedure until its back on. Now turn your iPad back on with the sleep / power button and wait till its fully loaded.

Now in the settings>bluetooth you should in theory see your sound bar again. If you still encounter problems don't hesitate to let me know.
Have a great weekend

MY ILIVE SOUND BAR KEEPS TURNING OFF WHEN WATCHING TV


I'm having the same problem. I don't think it has anything to do with the Sleep settings, you can play with them all day & the only benefit you may get is forcing it to stay on for 90 min or whatever instead of 15.
(I've tried setting to 00, obviously the first thing that comes to mind is that it's a Sleep Setting issue, but I seriously doubt this. You can't even set the Sleep Setting to 15min anyway)

Instead, I'm pretty sure that the problem exists in the sound bar not recognizing that there is an active signal & is shutting off due to what it sees as inactivity (timing out after use). I've come to this conclusion due to multiple complaints of the same problem.

Some people are reporting that it's not happening when they watch movies, others have tested & said the radio stays on as long as you like, a couple people have posted that theirs works fine & only shuts off when they turn off about 15 minutes after they shut off the audio source, which leads me to think that this is what is going on, the system thinks the audio source (TV, Bluray, etc) is off & no sound is coming through. It must have a funny way of detecting it...

I will try a few tests & if anything works I will pay the results. One person claimed there's stayed on after turning their TV all the way up... I could try this but will have to turn TV speakers off (currently I am running both TV speakers & sound bar). Anyway, I'll keep digging, must be some way to get this to work, I hope...

Turn off the sleep mode. For some reasons the geniuses ship it with a sleep setting already on. Hold the sleep button til it shows the time then press the sleep button several times until it displays 00. good luck!

The system goes into Sleep mode every 5 minutes and just before going into the sleep mode,''protection Error'' flases on the screen


Unfortunately, the unit is not going into "Sleep mode".
The PROTECTION error actually means that the unit is overheating.
The unit shuts itself off to avoid further damage.
Try to make sure that no other device is below the unit. Also make sure the unit has adequate ventilation on the back of it.
If not, call 1-800-7267864 and let them set up a repair order for the unit.

RCA RTD215 surround sound


I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX
