IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Your Unit is designed and manufactured to operate within defined design limits, and misuse may result in electric shock or fire. To prevent your Unit from being damaged, the following rules should be observed for its installation, use, and maintenance. Please read the following safety instructions before operating your Unit. Keep these instructions in a safe place for future reference.

  • Heed all warnings.
  • Follow all instructions.
  • Do not use this Unit near water.
  • Clean only with a dry cloth.
  • Do not block any ventilation openings. Install in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other Unit (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
  • Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized or grounding-type plug. A polarized plug has two blades with one wider than the other. A grounding type plug has two blades and a third grounding prong. The wide blade or the third prong are provided for your safety. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement of the obsolete outlet.
  • Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at the ends where the plug is located, near convenience receptacles, or where they exit from the Unit.
  • Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.
  • Use only with the stand, tripod, or bracket specified by the manufacturer, or sold with the Unit. When a cart is used, use caution when moving the cart/Unit combination to avoid injury from tip-over.
  • Unplug this Unit during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.
  • Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the Unit has been damaged in any way, such as when the power supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the Unit, the Unit has been exposed to rain or moisture, does not operate normally, or has been dropped.
  • To reduce the risk of electric shock or component damage, switch off the power before connecting other components to your Unit.
  • Unplug the power cord before cleaning your Unit. A damp cloth is sufficient for cleaning. Do not use a liquid or a spray cleaner on your Unit. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
  • Always use the accessories recommended by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility.
  • When moving your Unit from an area of low temperature to an area of high temperature, condensation may form in the housing. Wait before turning on your Unit to avoid causing fire, electric shock, or component damage.
  • Slots and openings in the back and bottom of the Unit are provided for ventilation. To ensure reliable operation of your Unit and to protect it from overheating, be sure these openings are not blocked or covered. Do not place your Unit in a bookcase or cabinet unless proper ventilation is provided.
  • Never push any object into the slots and openings on your Unit. Do not place any objects on the top of your Unit. Doing so could short circuit parts causing a fire or electric shock. Never spill liquids on your Unit.
  • Do not block the subwoofer ports. Allow for 1-2 inches of space around all sides for ventilation.
  • WARNING: Exposure to loud sounds can damage your hearing causing hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ears). With continued exposure to loud noises, ears may become accustomed to the sound level, which may result in permanent damage to hearing without any noticeable discomfort.
  • When connected to a power outlet, power is always flowing into your Unit. To totally disconnect power, unplug the power cord.
  • Do not overload power strips and extension cords. Overloading can result in fire or electric shock.
  • The wall socket should be located near your Unit and be easily accessible.

Keep your Unit away from moisture. Do not expose your Unit to rain or moisture. If water penetrates into your Unit, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer. Continuous use in this case may result in fire or electric shock.

  • Do not use your Unit if any abnormality occurs. If any smoke or odor becomes apparent, unplug the power cord and contact your dealer immediately. Do not try to repair your Unit yourself.
  • Avoid using dropped or damaged appliances. If your Unit is dropped and the housing is damaged, the internal components may function abnormally. Unplug the power cord immediately and contact your dealer for repair. Continued use of your Unit may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Do not install your Unit in an area with heavy dust or high humidity. Operating your Unit in environments with heavy dust or high humidity may cause fire or electric shock.
  • Ensure that the power cord and any other cables are unplugged before moving your Unit.
  • When unplugging your Unit, hold the power plug, not the cord. Pulling on the power cord may damage the wires inside the cord and cause fire or electric shock. When your Unit will not be used for an extended period of time, unplug the power cord.
  • To reduce risk of electric shock, do not touch the connector with wet hands.
  • Insert the remote control batteries in accordance with instructions. Incorrect polarity may cause the battery to leak which can damage the remote control or injure the operator.
  • Read and follow all warnings printed on the Unit.
  • WARNING: This equipment is not waterproof. To prevent a fire or shock hazard, do not place any container filled with liquid near the equipment (such as a vase or flower pot) or expose it to dripping, splashing, rain, or moisture.
  • CAUTION: Danger of explosion or fire if batteries are mistreated. Replace only with the same or specified type.
  • Do not leave the batteries exposed to direct sunlight for a long period of time with doors and windows closed. Do not disassemble the batteries or dispose of it in fire.
  • If the main wall plug or the appliance coupler is disconnected, the disconnected device will remain readily operable upon reconnection to an appropriate power source.

Turn off your TV speakers when programming your sound bar.

Bluetooth Pairing

To pair the sound bar with a Bluetooth device:

  1. Press and hold the Bluetooth button  on the sound bar or remote control for three (3) seconds.
  • Search for the sound bar (VIZIO SB2020n) using your Bluetooth device. For more information, refer to the user documentation that came with the device.

Now you can play audio from your Bluetooth device. Volume can be controlled on both your source device and the sound bar.

The LED indicator on the sound bar will turn blue and start blinking in pair mode. Once the device is paired, the LED indicator will stop flashing.

Using Bluetooth Mode

  1. Your sound bar supports music streaming from devices with Bluetooth capability.

(Device compatibility will vary, see your device’s documentation for more information.)

2.       Once you have paired your source device to the sound bar your device should remain paired (within range).

  • If the source is changed back to Bluetooth, any paired Bluetooth device will reconnect automatically.
  • If the input is changed, the Bluetooth device will disconnect (will stay connected if Auto VA BT is on).

A Bluetooth signal has a range of up to 30 feet. Keep in mind that Bluetooth is a compressed audio format, so streamed music may lose some integrity when compared to a wired connection. Try the following if your sound quality is less than optimal:

  • If you hear any break-up or disconnect while streaming music from your device, move the source device closer to the sound bar.
  • Be sure that there are no solid obstructions in the line-of-sight between the sound bar and the source device.
  • Other wireless devices can affect Bluetooth range, including wireless security cameras, wireless video baby monitors, cordless phones, and microwave ovens. Turning off or moving these devices may improve Bluetooth range.

Your sound bar is not equipped with a microphone, so it cannot operate as a hands-free device for a smartphone.

Reduce the volume levels on your device and on the sound bar before pressing Play. High volume levels can damage your hearing.

Connecting to a Voice Assistant

Your sound bar can connect to a Voice Assistant (VA) device through an AUX or Bluetooth connection. Once connected, your sound bar will now act as the VA speaker.

Features and Benefits:

  • Voice Assistant Dedicated Input: VA can be active on the sound bar even if the sound bar is set to a different input with audio playing.

Auto Muting: If playing audio from the sound bar, the VA will play over the original source audio for 10 seconds. If continued after the 10 seconds, the VA audio will mute the original source audio. Once the VA audio is stopped the original source audio will resume.

Make sure your sound bar is turned ON and Eco Power setting is turned OFF. Refer to Eco Power Mode on page 11 to disable.

Setup Tips:

  • If the VA audio is too low, adjust the volume from the VA device.
  • If the start of the response from the VA is cut off, enable “Start of Request” from your VA app settings.
  • To enable/disable the VA function, press and hold either the INPUT or Bluetooth button on the remote for 10 seconds (depending on what connection you use). Refer to Auto VA on page 10 for more information.

Using the AUX Port to Connect

(If there is no AUX port on the VA device, use a Bluetooth connection instead.)

  1. Use a 3.5mm audio cable to connect the AUX port on the sound bar to an AUX port on your voice assistant device.
  2. Press and hold the INPUT  button on the remote for 10 seconds to enable AUX VA.

Using Bluetooth to Connect

  1. Press and hold the Bluetooth button on the sound bar or remote for three (3) seconds. Search for the sound bar (VIZIO SB2020n) using your VA device app. For more information, refer to the user documentation that came with the device.
  2. After successful pairing, press and hold the Bluetooth button on the remote for 10 seconds to enable Bluetooth VA.

If you are the prevailing party in an arbitration to which the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes applies, then you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees as the arbitrator may determine.

The dispute will be governed by the laws of the state or territory in which you resided at the time of your purchase (if in the United States). The place of arbitration will be Irvine, California, or your county of residence (if in the United States).

ANY DISPUTE, WHETHER IN ARBITRATION, IN COURT, OR OTHERWISE, WILL BE CONDUCTED SOLELY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. VIZIO AND YOU AGREE THAT NO PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED AS A CLASS ACTION, A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OR PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY.

ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WILL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD SET FORTH ABOVE. SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

VIZIO WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF INFORMATION OR DATA, COMMERCIAL LOSS, LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS, OR OTHER INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF VIZIO HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

IN LIEU OF ANY OTHER REMEDY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES AND DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ANY CAUSE WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING VIZIO’S NEGLIGENCE, ALLEGED DAMAGE, OR DEFECTIVE GOODS, NO MATTER WHETHER SUCH DEFECTS ARE DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT), VIZIO MAY, AT ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OPTION AND IN ITS DISCRETION, REPAIR OR REPLACE YOUR PRODUCT, OR REFUND ITS PURCHASE PRICE.
