Razer leviathan v2 turns on but will not work


Userlevel 1

My leviathan v2 speakers have been working great for a while now and all of the sudden, stopped working, they turn on and the source light is green, but my pc no longer detects the speakers whatsoever. i also cannot change them to bluetooth to connect my phone to them. i just cannot get anything out of them. i have tried updating the firmware but in order to do this, the device needs to be in bluetooth mode so i cannot update, i have tried reinstalling synapse and restarting my pc but still no luck. i left it a couple of days and suddenly the source light was solid red and pressing the buttons or holding them did nothing, i switched it off at the wall and then back on and im back to them being able to turn on and off but still cannot get them in bluetooth mode or cannot get my pc to recognise them.

I have the same issue after tuned off my PC. every time that i make my PC start up this issue happen every time  synapse cannot detect soundbar. i had to disconnect cable and reconnect it to solve this problem.
lasted Driver of synapse and soundbar firmware updated everything.
hey Razer your product is suck. ashamed on you Razer.

no more buy your product.

I have the same issue after a power surge.

My Pc Windows or synapse doesnt detect the soundbar.

Bluetooth mode connects to my laptop but no sound.

Here is how i managed to start it again.

 

Remove all cables from the sound bar.

Remove the adapter from power socket. (This may not be necessary, just my experience)

Wait disconnected with no power about 15 minutes. (This may not be necessary, just my experience)

Press and hold power button for about 5 seconds. You should hear a low click inside the soundbar.

Connect every cable and power up.

 

I had the exact same issue, but changing power adaptors didn't work or only temporarily worked. In the end I pulled the entire thing apart, looked at everything, put it all back together and it's now working perfectly fine...

helped solve the problem by disconnecting the speaker from the power supply at night + resetting the settings (hold down the power button and -/+ volume)

This is the second time this has happened to me, and yes, power surges, power outages are the common scenario for me.

First time I had to borrow a friends soundbar (same model as mine, Leviathan V2), plug that to my PC, and somehow, something, whatever was broken, got fixed, his worked first time plugging into my PC, disconnected his and connected mine after all this and, to my surprise, it worked.

Six months after, same behavior. Sound bar turned on, but PC wouldn’t recognize it. However, this time, following the steps in the below link actually helped me fix the situation.

Razer Leviathan V2 Firmware Updater | RZ05-03920

Software and Firmware Updates for Razer Peripherals

Hope this also works for everyone. 

Cheers!

It happened again. Leviathan doesn't like power surges very much. Also, coincidentally, a new version of synapse has just been released. I don't know who the reason is, but the computer stopped seeing the device when connected. This time the firmware update helped me (I used another laptop that has bluetooth for this) - https://mysupport.razer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4166/~/software-and-firmware-updates-for-razer-peripherals

 

(at the 12th point, the button did not respond - I disconnected the device from the network and turned it on again https://mysupport.razer.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6274 )

I  have the same issue please help 

 

this has happened to me around 3x in the past 12 months, all because of a power interruption or fluctuation.  I even encountered the dreaded RED light earlier today.

 

[SYMPTOM]

Turning On the Leviathan V2 just freezes, bluetooth doesnt work, and speaker doesnt get detected. Sometimes upon turning on, it will show red light.

 

[FIX]

My solution is a variation of what ErikkVanilla and TroyFace has done.

While turned on, remove the USB cable, and insert another (high-quality) USB cable and choose a new USB port. As soon as I inserted the cable, my PC’s audio switched to it. Now, turn it off, gracefully, then plug back the official USB cable.

 

Good luck.

Lesson learned. Dont buy Razer anymore.

Apparently I managed to solve it!

The source wasn't sending enough energy/voltage to the input, I took the cable and pressed it very hard on the input, it's strange, but after I did this the PC recognized the PC mode and bluetooh, it's hard to explain, but there's something to do with the power source and cable.

Edit, I unplugged the device and separated the adapter’s power bar from the plug for ~15 minutes. After putting it back together, the soundbar started working again. That would indicate the adapter’s power bar itself may be the component that’s sensitive to power surges.

A power outage bricked my Leviathan V2. It turns on, will even connect to a Bluetooth transmitter, but there’s no sound. Additionally, the device is not recognized when it’s USB-connected to a PC, so there’s no way to factory-reset it.

 

When the power outage occurred, the device was plugged into surge protector. It would appear that the soundbar’s electronics are just too fragile.

I have the same issue… speakers work but suddenly no sound. Source light blue for me though. Trying to update whatever I can now and see what happens later. 
 

Razer support team please answer us on why this is happening…..

 

Same after a power outage it stopped working

 

Now another round of a power outage, another round of problem. And it can’t be fixed by switching the cables. Damn!

Same after a power outage it stopped working

 

I had the same problem. Holding the mute button down for 10 seconds forces a factory reset and the unit will power down. After powering back up, the sound was once again working. 

same problem… buy high end speaker for got problem only…. if u only replace the unit = useless.. 

 i have the same issue since a year now , no veiled solution from Razer.

I have the same problem and cannot seem to get it working. Other sound devices work.

I have the same problem and Razer does not offer a valid solution.

its defo not a real solution no, but yeah thats the only way i got around it, its a shame because im out of my warranty and they work great… when they work, but yeah unless i wanna part with the couple hundred i spent on them to buy something else, thats the best i have for now unfortunately🤣

Man, that is not a real solution, you should be able to work connecting this speaker to your usb c port. The problem is the quality of this devices. If someone is reading this post, before to buy it. Please, don't buy this garbage.

UPDATE…. Slight fix i have found…

 

So when i posted this, i had fixed it before i saw any replies, managed to fix with changing the power wire that goes to the power brick… since then it was fine (once i got it back to PC mode) but then i took it in to the garden to use with my phone for bluetooth and then same again, would not go back to pc mode and would not play with bluetooth.

 

I tried for hours with switching cables and nothing worked, i then found a cable from a back massager that i have, that had the same size plug for the speaker end and it has the same specs as the power brick from the original one… Input: 100-240v - 50-60Hz so i removed the original power brick and plugged this into the speaker, turned it on, and it was able to switch to pc mode instantly, i then turned it off and plugged the original power wire back in and its working perfect on my pc… for me this is fine because i just wont change back to bluetooth again… i feel like this issue is initially down to the power brick from razer just being iffy / broken and probably requires a new one, but as long as its in pc mode and not switched, it works.

 

Thanks fort all your replies, hope this can help you all.

Same issue

 

I've been going back and forth with support and they're telling me I have to buy a new one with 15% off.  I just want this one to work.  It's ridiculous I can't even do an update on my own because the BT button doesn't function.

Tried new cables.  Multiple ports. Powered off n on etc

 

Very unhappy 

I suspect that disconnecting the device from the power supply for more than 15 minutes helped me. Now it is working, but the synapse still does not see it

Hello, I too am experiencing the same issue. Attempted to switch cables and no fix. Any updates? 

 

bro me too this leviathan v2 is too sux broooo
