How to fix cut off sound with QN85B and QN90B

If your speaker or soundbar keeps getting cut off when connected to your Samsung television, then you can try taking the following steps:

1. If you are using a wireless speaker or soundbar, then you need to make sure that there aren’t any physical objects that may be blocking the direct line of sight between your sound device and your television set.

2. You should also make sure that you don’t have any wireless devices nearby. A Wi-Fi router, for example, will cause interference with the sound output.

In this case, you can either reposition the Wi-Fi router, soundbar and/or speaker.

3. You can also try moving the wireless soundbar or speaker closer to the television set as the distance may be too long to establish a stable connection.

4. If possible, you can also try changing the Wi-Fi connection of your router to the 5 GHz frequency.

5. You can also simply try using a wired connection when connecting the speaker or sound as doing so should be more reliable than a wireless connection.

6. If using a wired connection is still causing issues, then you should make sure that the cable is correctly connected. You should also make sure that the cable hasn’t been damaged.
