Question about Samsung 40" AudioBar w/ Wireless Subwoofer HW-E450
My samsung HW-E450 soundbar with was working fine for about 3 months. But, now it is not auto linking with the subwoofer. It flashes the message "check subwoofer". I have to reset the subwoofer and link it manually. But, only works until the unit is turned off. Next time, same issue. I am using Anylink with HDMA ARC connection and it turns on with the TV. I even tried turning off Anylink. Problem didnt go away. What is possibly wrong with my system?

Purchased a x810 & everything tests out fine except TV signal sounds from cable box. We have the Comcast cable box connected to the 50" Samsung Plasma TV hooked up to Samsung x810 Soundbar all using HDMI cables. But we are not getting cable shows sound through Soundbar. Please advise

My unit said "protection", "goodbye" so I opened it up and found a capacitor to one of the speakers had blown, right by the fan. It's a 35 cent part and a simple solder job. The hardest part was getting the face plate off the dvd tray so I could get to the circuit board.

Try unplugging the unit for 60 minutes, then plug back in and try it again. This will reset the processor and hopefully the unit will operate normally. Check all the speaker wiring for shorts, make sure they're also not touching the chassis of the receiver, or are not otherwise pinched or frayed. If all looks well, try disconnecting all the speakers and cycle the power off, then on again.
If it power up, try connecting the speakers one at a time until one of them shuts the receiver down. Check this speaker with a multi-meter and make sure it is reading between 4-8 ohms.
If not, the speaker may be blown and is causing the receiver to see a short and therefore power down. The "Protection" will stay lit because of a short inside the unit, and is protecting the rest of the components for further damage. It will automatically disappear once the condition is fixed.
Honestly though, if this is happening already, I would exchange the system as soon as possible or if you have an upgrade option, see if you can get a Philips, or Samsung system as they have better reliability in general based on what I've seen and read.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.

Protect is an error code for short and overload. To isolate where the fault came from use only the DVD player(built-in) while disconnected all inputs(PS3, TV etc.). If the symptom didn't appear, high chance that it came from bad cable connectors from your inputs. You have to change the inputs with a new cables, old cable may have an internal shorts due to frequent bending or pulling which trigger the protect error code.
If the symptom still there after disconnecting the inputs from the unit, disconnect now the speaker while playing again the unit(play it without the speaker's connected). If the symptom didn't appear, the trouble is in the speaker loaded to the unit. You have to isolate them one-by-one by connecting it one at a time. Note : turn off the unit before connecting the speakers.
If the symptom still there, the fault is in the unit itself. This is caused by either faulty power supply which is gone to out-of regulation due to faulty parts(mostly the electrolytic capacitor) or the audio Output circuitry. This is quite technical and need to check by a qualified technician, I would advice you to send it to repair shop to troubleshoot the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Sounds like it's stuck in it's power saving mode. If you've tried reset, checked all the connections, and kicked out the plug for a Cold Reboot and it's still no go, open the back, spit in it 3 times and hit it with a rock - or take it to a TECH because you've already done ALL that you are capable of, or you'd already know that.
