Can't turn on the AAC codec function of the soundbar

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    If the Bluetooth device connected to the HT-X8500 soundbar doesn't support the AAC audio codec, that codec function of the sound bar can't be turned on.
    Check the specifications or manual of your Bluetooth device if it supports the AAC codec.

    Also, if the soundbar is already connected to a Bluetooth device, the AAC codec function can't be switched on or off. You can only switch it after turning off the Bluetooth function of the soundbar.

    How to turn Bluetooth on or off

    Press and hold the Power button (power button), Input button (input button), and – (minus volume) button for more than ten seconds.

    • If the Bluetooth function is on, the HDMI® and BLUETOOTH indicators will flash.
    • If the Bluetooth function is off, the Dolby ATMOS (Dolby) ATMOS and DTS:X indicators will flash.
