TCL products have been popular among people and have been loved by everyone who purchased it but unfortunately, the products have been facing some issues in their system from a long time. TCL Android TV users have pointed out a problem saying that their HDMI ARC is not working. Users said that when they connected a HDMI cable through ARC in their TV and started to use apps like Netflix, they were not able to hear the sound and the same thing happened when they connected the cable box to their TV. Users said that the ARC works sometimes and sends sounds to the receiver and sometimes it does not. If you are also facing the same type of problems, follow these steps to fix the issue by yourself –
- Make sure that nothing else is plugged into the HDMI input of the soundbar.
- Make sure that you have connected the HDMI cable properly.
- Switch off the TV, turn it on and try to connect again.
- Reset your Android TV.
