Connect Your Sound+ Soundbar to the TV Using Bluetooth

When you connect the soundbar to your TV through Bluetooth, you can listen to stereo sound without the hassle of cables. Only one TV can be connected at a time.

If your TV does not support Bluetooth, you will need to connect your TV using an HDMI (for ARC) , Optical , or Analog connection.

Connecting to Your TV

Connecting the Soundbar

The steps below are for a Samsung TV. If you are using a non-Samsung TV, please refer to your user manual for more information on pairing Bluetooth devices.

  1. Press Source on the remote or soundbar until BT appears on the display.

  2. BT will change to BT PAIRING.

    If BT READY appears, press and hold Source for 6 seconds to display BT PAIRING.

  3. Enter the Speaker menu on your TV and then select Bluetooth Audio.

    Depending on your TV, you may have to navigate to the Bluetooth menu.

  4. Select [AV] Samsung Soundbar from the list of Bluetooth devices and then select Pair and connect.

    When the connection is successful, [TV Name] > BT will appear on the soundbar display.

  5. You can now listen to the TVs sound through the soundbar.


If the Connection Fails

  1. If the previous soundbar appears in the TV's Bluetooth device list, delete it.

  2. While the soundbar is in BT mode, press and hold Source on the remote or soundbar for 6 seconds to switch to BT PAIRING mode. Then, select [AV] Samsung Soundbar from your TV's Bluetooth device list.
