When I pair my sound at with the subwoofer it pairs for a few minutes, then the blue light goes out on the subwoofer. Does the blue light have to be on for the subwoofer to stay connected?  If so, why does it not work correctly? 

Asked by: Mary
I was not able to get the sub to pair with the soundbar. Called Crutchfield (where I purchased), they were no help, did not have a manual. Called JBL and they did not have a manual either. Their tech had a unit in his location and he played with his to come up with a solution. If your sub is flashing at a different rate than your sound bar they will not sync. Turn the power off to both units. Reconnect the Power.  Push the sync button on the soundbar then push the button on the subwoofer, it they are flashing at a different rate push the button on the soundbar a second time possibly a third until they are flashing at the same rate. Once they are flashing at the same rate they will connect and you are in business.

BT Lost Buffer Connection Hello, I have a problem with the buffer. Constantly losing touch and hear a strong pop when listening through Apple laptop. I did reset the system, but not effect.What to do? Will there be an update to fix the problem?

Asked by: Martev
I experienced totally the same issue. Moreover (rarely? 1of 10 times) if my laptop connects back in automatically to soundbar I cannot adjust the volume with OSX volume control because it adjusts the bass level. We want to use 4-5 devices simultaneously (but not in same time) and the connection sometimes is very painful, I have to try it many times to connect successfully.

I purchased JBL SB250 on 10-4-2016 and i am unable to connect it to TV from the cable what JBL has provided.How to connect jbl sb250 to tv using aux analog cable?

Asked by: deepu
If your TV has a digital optical audio output: Connect the supplied optical cable between the TV and the SB250. You will then have to set your TV to send the audio signal to the optical output, and you will have to select the optical input on the SB250. If your TV has left and right (white & red) analog audio outputs: Connect the supplied cable between the TV and the aux input on the SB250. This output on the TV may be effected by the volume control on your TV. Some TV's will give you the opportunity to set this output to FIXED or VARIABLE. If your TV provides this option, set the TV speakers to OFF and set the output to FIXED. Then set the SB250 to the aux input and you'll be set. If your TV has a mini-stereo headphone/line output: You will need to purchase a mini-stereo to mini-stereo audio cable, and connect it between the headphone/line output on the TV and the aux input on the SB250. This output on the TV may be effected by the volume control on your TV. Some TV's will give you the opportunity to set this output to FIXED or VARIABLE. If your TV provides this option, set the TV speakers to OFF and set the output to FIXED. Then set the SB250 to the aux input and you'll be set.

My subwoofer is making a poping sound , and i just got it today brand new , can u say how can i fix this ? thank you

Asked by: dushawn
When a speaker begins to pop, it means that it is receiving a signal that is clipped or distorted. This is telling you to turn down your volume control.It could also be due to an interference caused by a wireless router another wireless device like phones, tablets or computers for example which may be active around the unit. please try to turn off or move away any wireless devices and check whether the noise is gone. You can also try to move the subwoofer to a different location for a test.

I just got the sound bar system and its great!! However, the subwoofer keeps "popping" every few minutes and it's very annoying. How do I get it to stop doing it?

Asked by: RichieRich9969
Hi RichieRich, were you ever able to figure this out on yours? I have the same problem and have completely exhausted myself troubleshooting and moving things around to try and fix it.

I am having a random thumping from the sub woofer only when i am connected by bluetooth to my phone to play music. It is also happening when my wife's phone is connected. Whats the issue? Thanks

Asked by: Derp
What you are experiencing with the SB250's subwoofer is not normal. Try to adjust the bass level lower and see if the thumping noise will still be present. If it is, please submit a case at jbl.com/contactus and our Customer Service Team will be glad to assist you.
