INSTALLING THE WALL MOUNT
++Installation Precautions
●● Install on a vertical wall only.
●● For the installation, avoid a location with high temperature or humidity, or a wall that cannot sustain the weight of
the set.
●● Check the strength of the wall. If the wall is not strong enough to support the unit, reinforce the wall or install the
unit on a different wall that can support the unit's weight.
●● Purchase and use the fixing screws or anchors appropriate for the kind of wall you have (plaster board, iron board,
wood, etc.). If possible, fix the support screws into wall studs.
●● Purchase wall mounting screws according to the type and thickness of the wall you will mount the Soundbar on.
-- Diameter: M5
-- Length: 1 3/8 inches or longer recommended.
●● Connect cables from the unit to external devices before you install it on the wall.
●● Make sure the unit is turned off and unplugged before you install it. Otherwise, it may cause an electric shock.
2 inches or more
1. Place the Wall Mount Guide against the wall surface.
• The Wall Mount Guide must be level.
• If your TV is mounted on the wall, install the Soundbar at least 2 inches (5 cm) below the TV.

●● If you are not mounting below a TV, place the Center Line in the center of the installation area.
3. Push a pen tip or sharpened pencil tip through the center of the B-TYPE images on each end of the Guide to
mark the holes for the supporting screws, and then remove the Wall Mount Guide.
4. Using an appropriately sized drill bit, drill a hole in the wall at each marking.
●● If the markings do not correspond to the positions of studs, make sure you insert appropriate anchors or
mollies into the holes before you insert the support screws. If you use anchors or mollies, make sure the
holes you drill are large enough for the anchors or mollies you use.

If asked for a PIN code when connecting a Bluetooth device, enter <0000>.
Only one Bluetooth device can be paired at a time.
The Bluetooth connection will be terminated when you turn the Soundbar off.
The Soundbar may not perform Bluetooth search or connection correctly under the following
circumstances:
-- If there is a strong electrical field around the Soundbar.
-- If several Bluetooth devices are simultaneously paired with the Soundbar.
-- If the Bluetooth device is turned off, not in place, or malfunctions.
Note that such devices as microwave ovens, wireless LAN adaptors, fluorescent lights, and gas stoves use
the same frequency range as the Bluetooth device, which can cause electric interference.
The Soundbar supports SBC data (44.1kHz, 48kHz).
Connect only to a Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP (AV) function.
You cannot connect the Soundbar to a Bluetooth device that supports only the HF (Hands Free) function.
Once the set has been paired with a device, if the soundbar is in DIN, AUX, or USB mode and you select
“[AV]samsung soundbar Kxxx K-ser" from your Bluetooth device's list, the set will automatically change to
BT mode.
-- Available only if the Soundbar is listed among the Bluetooth device’s paired devices. (The Bluetooth
device and the Soundbar must have been previously paired at least once.)

and the Bluetooth device exceeds 16.4 ft.
●● The Soundbar automatically turns off after 5 minutes in the Ready state.
++More About Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a technology that enables Bluetooth-compliant devices to interconnect easily with each other using a
short wireless connection.
●● A Bluetooth device may cause noise or malfunction, depending on usage, if:
-- A part of your body is in contact with the receiving/transmitting system of the Bluetooth device or the
Soundbar.
-- It is subject to electrical variation from obstructions caused by a wall, corner, or office partition.
-- It is exposed to electrical interference from same frequency-band devices including medical equipment,
microwave ovens, and wireless LANs.
●● Pair the Soundbar with the Bluetooth device while they are close together.
●● The further the distance between the Soundbar and Bluetooth device, the worse the quality is.
If the distance exceeds the Bluetooth operational range, the connection is lost.
●● In poor reception areas, the Bluetooth connection may not work properly.
●● The Bluetooth connection only works when it is close to the unit. The connection will be automatically cut off if the
Bluetooth device is out of range. Even within range, the sound quality may be degraded by obstacles such as
walls or doors.
●● This wireless device may cause electric interference during its operation.
USING THE SAMSUNG AUDIO REMOTE APP
++Installing the Samsung Audio Remote App
To control the Soundbar with your smart device and the Samsung Audio Remote app, download the Samsung Audio
Remote app from Google Play store.

Samsung may offer updates for the Soundbar's system firmware in the future.
If an update is offered, you can update the firmware by connecting a USB device with the firmware update stored on it
to the USB port on your Soundbar.
Note that if there are multiple update files, you must load them onto the USB device singly and use them to update the
firmware one file at a time.
Please visit samsung.com or contact the Samsung call center to receive more information about downloading update
files.
●● This product has a DUAL BOOT function. If the firmware fails to update, you can update the firmware
again.
●● Connect a USB device containing the firmware upgrade to the standard end of a USB standard jack to
USB Micro plug Adapter cable. Connect the USB Micro plug end of the cable to the USB jack on the main
unit.
●● Updating firmware may not work properly if audio files supported by the Soundbar are stored in the USB
storage device.
●● Do not disconnect the power or remove the USB device while updates are being applied. The main unit will
turn off automatically after completing the firmware update.
●● After the update, all settings are reset to their factory default settings. We recommend you write down your
settings so that you can easily reset them after the update. Note that updating firmware resets the
subwoofer connection too.
If the connection to the subwoofer is not re-established automatically after the update, refer to page 18.
If the firmware fails to update, we recommend formatting the USB device in FAT16 and trying again.
●● Once the software update is completed, turn off the product and then press and hold the ( p ) button on
the remote control for more than 5 seconds. “INIT” appears on the display and the unit is powered off. The
updgrade is complete.
●● Do not format the USB device in the NTFS format. The Soundbar does not support the NTFS file system.
●● Depending on the manufacturer, some USB devices may not be supported.
