Adjusting the AV sync setting

If a Bluetooth audio device is connected, there may be a delay between the picture and sound due to the properties of Bluetooth. You can adjust the delay between the picture and sound with the A/V sync setting. (Only for Bluetooth A2DP-supported models that can use Bluetooth audio devices.)

Bluetooth A2DP-supported models that can use Bluetooth audio devices have [A/V sync] in [Settings] — [Sound].

  1. Press the HOME button, then select [Settings] — [Sound] — [A/V sync] — the desired option.

Hint

  • You can also adjust the output timing of the picture and sound if a specific audio system is connected with an HDMI cable. For details about supported models, refer to the support site.

Note

  • Depending on the connected Bluetooth audio device, the picture and sound may not match even when the [A/V sync] setting is set to [On] or [Auto].
  • To prevent the TV from displaying a black screen immediately after turning it on when a sound bar is connected wirelessly (Bluetooth), set the [A/V sync] setting to [On].
  • If [Picture mode] is set to one of the options below, the output timing of the picture and sound is not adjusted even when the [A/V sync] setting is set to [Auto].
    • [Game]
    • [Graphics]
    • [Photo‑Vivid]
    • [Photo‑Standard]
    • [Photo‑Custom]
    To adjust [A/V sync] when in any of these modes, select [On].
  • The responsiveness of the TV while playing video games may feel slower due to the [A/V sync] setting adding a delay to the output timing of the picture. For games that are dependant on response time, we recommend that you use the TV speakers or a sound bar with a wired (HDMI cable/optical digital cable) connection.
