If you want to bask in the sun while listening to tunes, then Solar Bluetooth Speakers may be just the thing for you. If you are not technologically advanced, then you may find it difficult to use the Bluetooth on the device. If so, follow the tips below to help you with some potential pairing issues you may be having.
Before you can use your Bluetooth device, you need to make sure that your phone is paired to the speaker. Pairing means that the devices are connected to one another. In the case of your speaker, your phone is the part of the system that transmits information, while the speaker receives it.
Typically, your phone will not pair automatically to your speaker. However, once the speaker and phone have been paired, then your phone should connect automatically once your speaker is turned on, as long as you have your phone's Bluetooth on.
To pair the first time, the speaker must be in discoverable mode. This means that it is actively searching for a device to connect to. Before you activate this mode, make sure that your phone's Bluetooth is on. You can turn it on in the setting menu. You will want to go into the Bluetooth menu in your settings once your speaker is discoverable as well.
To make the speaker discoverable, read the instructions in the manual. Typically, you will need to hold down a button on the device, so it is fairly easy. Once you do this, go into your phone's Bluetooth menu. Choose the option to search for new devices or scan for devices. You should see the name of the speaker listed in devices after a few seconds. Tap on the speaker and you should connect to the device.
If you are having connection difficulties, then this may mean that there is another phone in the vicinity that is trying to connect to the device. Make sure to connect in an area where no other phones are present.
Also, some phones have a setting that makes the phone "invisible" to Bluetooth devices for a short period of time. You may need to turn on visibility before scanning for devices.
If you pair your bluetooth speaker properly, then your phone should always pair with the device. If a friend wants to use their music playlist during a day out on the beach, then this may be problematic. This means that you need to disconnect the device so your friend can then pair theirs. You can simply turn off the Bluetooth and your friend's phone can connect once the speaker is discoverable.
If you change phones or no longer want to use your phone with the speaker, then it is wise to unpair the device. Unpairing is different than simply turning the Bluetooth off. To do this, you will need to go into the Bluetooth menu. Tap on the speaker name and then hit the unpair option. You should no longer see the speaker listed as a Bluetooth option.
