There are a few reasons behind this problem. The most common one is a problem with the settings. The problem can appear if you recently made some changes in your Vizio Sound bar’s setting.
There can be other reasons as well, for instance, there can be an issue with the power outlet or the Bluetooth connection can be poor, plus you might have been using your sound bar in the demo mode, but it is hard to determine.

The flashing of white lights means that your Sound Bar is continuously turning on and off.
There are different methods that can be used to fix this issue. In this post, we have mentioned a few ways to resolve the flashing white light issues with your Vizio Sound Bar. All of these methods are tested by our tech team and they work perfectly.
So without wasting any further time let’s get started.
5 Ways to Fix Vizio Sound Bar Flashing White Lights Issue
Check the Connection of the Sound Bar
The first thing you should do is to check the connection of your Sound Bar. Sometimes the plug might not fit into the socket, or the socket can be loose causing connection issues which ultimately lead to the flashing of White Lights on your Sound Bar.
First of all, unplug your Sound Bar from the power outlet and wait for a few minutes. After that plug it in again. Now press and hold the power button for a few seconds.
After that, check if your Sound Bar is fixed or not. If you’re still facing the same issue then move on to the next fix.
Fixing the Settings
The second leading cause can be a problem with the settings of your Vizio Sound Bar. If you have recently updated the settings then acknowledge that something has gone wrong. You might have unknowingly pressed a button which probably leads to the flashing of white lights on the Sound Bar.
You can do a few things to fix the settings again. For instance, I recommend resetting a few features in your Sound bar’s settings. Check every single setting option and change them, one after another. Do not alter the settings at once.
After you change one setting, check if the issue has been resolved or not. By changing them one after another, you will be able to find the root cause of the issue.
Check Your Bluetooth Connection
The third method on this list involves fixing your Bluetooth connection.
Another reason behind the flashing of white lights on your sound bar is a poor Bluetooth connection or simply an issue with the Bluetooth connection.
The possible issues can be with pairing or with connectivity. In order to fix the Bluetooth-related issues of your sound bar. Press and hold the Bluetooth button for three to five seconds.
By doing this, your sound bar will go into pairing mode. In the pairing mode, you will still notice the blinking of lights, but when you successfully pair a device the flashing will disappear.
Now check, if the problem is resolved or not. If yes, then congratulations, otherwise let’s try another fix.
Leave the Demo Mode
The fourth method on our list involves exiting the demo mode on your Vizio Sound Bar.
Another common reason behind the flashing of white lights might be that your Vizio Sound Bar is still in demo mode. In the demo mode, most of the important features are disabled. It is basically used in sales shops to run the system so that customers can check it out.
If your sound bar is in the demo mode, it might flashlights to get your attention. Here’s how you can leave the demo mode:
- You can use the menu options of your Vizio Sound Bar to exit the demo mode.
- Another option is to use the Vizio Mobile App to quit the mode.
- If these options don’t work then you can exit the mode by pressing the hard buttons on your sound bar. For instance, you can press the Bluetooth button, or the volume buttons, at once for a total of five seconds.
- After doing that, your LED lights will blink three to four-time and then the blinking issue will be resolved.
Resetting the Sound Bar
The fifth method that we recommend is to reset your Vizio Sound Bar.
Even after trying the above-mentioned solutions, if the problem still persists then try resetting your Vizio Sound Bar. Even if something went wrong with your sound bar, resetting it to the default factory settings might fix it.
The only drawback is that all of your previously done settings and selected preferences will be erased. Here’s how you can reset your Vizio Sound Bar just by following a few simple steps:
- Press and hold your Bluetooth button and the Volume down button
- Wait for a few seconds (four to five seconds)
- After that check, if your LED light has stopped blinking or not.
After resetting, the issue is very likely to be resolved. However, please keep in mind that resetting your Vizio sound bar is only recommended when the other methods aren’t working for you.
These were a few methods and fixes to resolve the flashing white lights issue on your Vizio Sound Bar. However, if these fixes don’t work for you then we recommend contacting customer support from Vizio.
You can get your sound bar checked by a representative of the company to find out the real problem going on with it.
