I have a Samsung Soundbar HW-H550 connected to a Samsung UHD

Resolved Question:

I have a Samsung Soundbar HW-H550 connected to a Samsung UHD 4k TV VIA BLUETOOTH. The connection has worked fine for a year but has stopped working. If I turn the soundbar on it turns on, goes through the connection process fine but no sound comes on.
Any ideas?

It is easy, need a smart phone having bluetooth feature.Turn On sound bar, press Source button on sound bar remote to get BT source. You will get BT Ready message on sound bar. Turn Bluetooth feature in your cellphone and search the device nearby, select Samsung soundbar in available device list and your sound bar will show your cellphone name/ model that means it has establish bluetooth connection.Please click following link to download user manual copy of soundbar and check page-16 for detailed info...http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201411/20141118113802310/HW-H550_H551-ZA-ENG-IB_20141107-cms.pdfIf sound bar doesn't connect with your smart phone that means sound bar has got internal failure with bluetooth section and can only be used with other input sources but not the bluetooth.Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.Thanks.
