Connect Bluetooth Audio Devices to Samsung TVs

Last modified : May 22. 2019

Most QLED, 4K, UHD, and SUHD TV models can connect lots of different Bluetooth devices - like Bluetooth headphones, speakers and Soundbars, as well as keyboards and gaming controllers. You can follow the steps below on how to pair Bluetooth audio devices, or check out the Connection Guide right on your TV at Settings > Source > Connection Guide.

Please Note: If your TV Model number ends with a 3 (ie. UA55MU6103WXXY), you may not be able to connect Bluetooth devices. Check the specifications online for your specific TV to make sure.

For detailed steps on pairing Bluetooth Keyboards to a Samsung TV, please see the page on How to pair Wireless Keyboards to Samsung TVs. If your TV was manufactured between 2012 and 2014, you'll need to check out the page on Connecting SoundShare Devices to a Samsung TV for information on connecting Bluetooth SoundShare devices. 

Pair Bluetooth Sound Devices

1 Press the Home button on your remote control and then select Setting . On the left hand side, choose the Sound menu, which is second from the top and then select Sound Output from the centre menu. The menu paths below are common to most Samsung TVs manufactured after 2016:
  • Settings > Sound > Sound Output > Speaker List / Bluetooth Audio
  • Settings > Sound > Expert Settings > Wireless Speaker Manager > Bluetooth Audio Devices
Sound menu.
2 Select the Speaker List that you would like to connect to your TV. It’s important to make sure your Bluetooth device is on and in pairing mode.

3 Select Pair and connect, and wait for your device to connect.

If you're having trouble pairing your device, try the following:

  • Make sure the Bluetooth device is charged, and not currently paired with any other device
  • Bring the Bluetooth device within a metre or two from the TV
  • Check the user manual for your Bluetooth device to ensure it is going into pairing mode 
  • Power cycle both the TV and Bluetooth device 
4 When the devices are done pairing, select OK.

If you are experiencing problems after going through the above steps, try going through some of the tips below:

 

  • Bring the device closer and press refresh.
  • To connect a Samsung audio device that supports TV SoundConnect to the TV, change the mode on the Samsung audio device to TV SoundConnect.
  • You are unable to use Bluetooth devices and the Surround feature simultaneously.
  • Only one Bluetooth device can be connected at a time.
