How to Connect My Haier TV to a Soundbar (Haier Roku TV)

The TV has two audio modes, which can be accessed by navigating in the Home screen menu to Settings> Audio> Digital audio output.

  • Stereo- Use this setting for internal speakers, headphones, and external stereo amplifiers connected through HDMI ARC, SPDIF optical, or headphone jack.
  • Auto- Use this setting to automatically detect the best audio setting based on the audio stream in the content you are watching. If you have connected the TV to a soundbar through HDMI ARC or SPDIF optical, the TV automatically selects the appropriate sound capabilities of the device based on the characteristics of the current program.

Connect your Haier 32E4000R to a Sound bar via a digital audio connection:

  • HDMI ARC- The HDMI Audio Return Channel enables the TV to output digital audio on one of its HDMI connectors. The connected amplifiers can also function as an input source to the TV, if needed. To use the ARC capability, you must connect an HDMI cable from your sound bar’s HDMI ARC connector to the HDMI ARC connector on the TV. Be sure you are using a certified HDMI cable. Select the appropriate setting under Settings> Audio> Audio mode as explained above. Then make sure you enable HDMI ARC under Settings> System> CEC.
  • SPDIF optical- To use the optical output, connect a TOSLINK optical cable from the sound bar to the optical or SPDIF connector on the TV. Also, make sure you select the appropriate setting under settings> Audio> Audio mode as explained above.

After making the required HDMI ARC or SPDIF optical connection, go to settings> Audio> S/PDIF and ARC option and select the audio format to use.

Haier TV Turns On and Off by Itself

A Haier TV turning on and off by itself could be because of a cable or satellite box that is connected to the TV. If the cable or SAT box is set to control the TV, it could turn on the TV as it turns itself on to record a program. You will need to change the settings on the TV or DVR to make sure only the DVR turns on.

If the cable or satellite box is not the issue, here are other possible causes for the TV behaving that way:

  • It could be responding to an infrared signal from a remote control belonging to other devices, or even from a neighbor’s house through the window.
  • It could be responding to flickering indoor light, sunlight, or street light. Try closing the curtains and turning the lights and other equipment with LEDs off.
  • It could have a faulty connection inside that responds to vibration.
  • It could point to internal power supply unit failure.
  • It could be a programming feature. Check the on/off timer feature on your setting to make sure it is not enabled.
  • The remote control could be faulty or low voltage or corroded battery contacts inside.
  • Poor connection in the mains power plug or socket, causing arcing.
