Enabling Bluetooth on your LG TV
As you know, LG Smart TVs use their own operating system “WebOS”, which previously supported only branded sound devices from LG. Starting with the third version of webOS, you can connect devices from other manufacturers to your TV.
You can activate Bluetooth module on LG Smart TV as follows:
- Press the “Menu” or “Setting s” button on your TV remote control;
- In the menu that opens, select the “Sound” section;
- Check the box next to the “LG Sound Sync / Bluetooth” option;
If full work with Bluetooth on your TV is blocked, we recommend using the capabilities of the engineering menu.
To call it, press and hold the OK buttons on the remote control, as well as on the TV panel for a few seconds, and the service menu will appear on the screen.
For some TV models, you may need to press the “Menu” buttons on the remote control and on the TV panel at the same time for a few seconds to access the service menu. On some TV models, both methods work and open different service menus.
If a password is requested in the service menu, enter 0000 (four zeros). If 0000 doesn’t work, try 7777 or 0413 or 8741 or 8743 or 8878.
Then you can make changes to the desired settings. Press the button on the remote control to save the changes.
What you need to know about turning on Bluetooth on your Smart TV?
As you know, not all Samsung and LG TVs support Bluetooth. Therefore, it will not be possible to turn on Bluetooth on all TVs. Usually, this requires the presence of a Smart TV and a hardware module responsible for the operation of the specified technology.
You can find out if your TV supports Bluetooth connection by examining the specifications of your TV. To do this, type in the full model name of your TV into a search engine, and study the technical characteristics of the device. Specialized web resources like fullspecs.net can also help.
If you have a Smart TV of the brands “Samsung”, “Sony”, “LG”, “Philips” with Bluetooth support, then it is likely that your device will not allow you to connect via Bluetooth from other manufacturers.

How to connect wireless headphones to your tablet
You can connect any wireless headphones to your tablet in the same way as to a modern smartphone. The algorithm of actions does not change.
Steps to connect bluetooth headphones to tablet
The steps for connecting to a tablet running Android and iOS are exactly the same, only the appearance will differ. I only have an iPad in my hands, so I will take screenshots with it, but you can follow exactly the same steps if you have an Android tablet, everything will be the same.
Step 1. enable headphone pairing
The headphones always have a power on / off button. In the vast majority of cases, this button also turns on the pairing mode, if you hold it for 7-10 seconds while the headphones are off.
Pairing is necessary for the tablet and headphones to exchange security codes, which are necessary to decrypt the data exchanged between the devices. Have you ever wondered how it turns out that if there are 10 tablets and 10 Bluetooth headphones nearby, which are connected in pairs, then their signals will not mix and everyone will hear what they should and will never hear what the person sitting next to him hears? The fact is that all data that is transmitted via Bluetooth is encrypted and can only be decrypted by the device that has the same security key as the second gadget. Thus, the signal is available only to you and no one else.
Step 2. Enter the Bluetooth settings on the tablet. Turn on Bluetooth. Now enter the settings menu for this type of communication. You will see a list of devices that the tablet already knows about, and below there is a menu “available devices”, which displays third-party Bluetooth gadgets that are ready to exchange security codes with you if you wish. It is in the list of available devices that you should see the name of your headphones.
Step 3. Completing pairing The name may not appear immediately, you need to wait for a while, but usually it does not take longer than 15-20 seconds, as soon as it appears, click on it. After that, the pairing will be completed automatically, the tablet will remember the headphones and the next time you just need to turn them on, and not enter the pairing mode, and they will automatically connect. Of course, if the Bluetooth module in the tablet is active.
Sometimes additional requests may appear on the screen, for example, on the Android OS, the function of unlocking the device is available, if there is a Bluetooth device next to it, with which it has already been paired. It is understood that if the tablet sees your headphones, then you are somewhere nearby, which means that the screen can not be blocked. In some cases, this is indeed a very convenient feature, but be careful not to let strangers and crooks take your personal device into the hands.

How to connect headphones to a Samsung tablet?
In the modern world, more and more people are faced with the need to listen to their favorite music, watch films and interesting videos in public places, on the way to work or study. Therefore, even small-sized speakers are out of the question. they will be drowned out by surrounding sounds and interfere with people nearby. A personal headset for playing sounds. headphones. will help in this matter. They will allow you to immerse yourself in your favorite playlist, movie or video and at the same time not violate the framework of the personal space of others.
Everyone is used to the fact that the headset successfully connects to a player or smartphone, but what about the tablet? Samsung headphones are connected to this gadget in the same way as all other devices. There are wired and wireless models of devices for listening to sounds. Depending on the modification, the connection technology differs significantly.
Step-by-step instructions for connecting headphones to your tablet:
- Find a metal plug at the end of the headphones, and the corresponding socket at the end of the tablet.
- Connect them all the way.
- The device should display a headset connected icon.
- Check audio playback.
Connecting headphones wirelessly to iOS models:
- Connect Bluetooth for data transmission by activating the corresponding button in the settings menu.
- On the case, find a button to turn on the headphones working with a radio signal.
- Press it. the search for devices nearby is activated.
- After successfully finding the device, the corresponding headset icon will appear.

- Prepare your tablet for Bluetooth data transfer.
- The model will start searching for a headset to play sounds.

The device model may differ, but the general connection principles will be the same.
Is it possible to receive calls on the tablet with headphones?
Tablets allow you to make calls, for this they have built-in microphones and speakers. However, the dimensions of modern models make the conversation very uncomfortable and conspicuous for the people around them. Therefore, it is most convenient to answer calls using a headset that has not only headphones, but also a built-in microphone.
If it is absent, you can listen using the sound playback device, and speak into the tablet microphone. Therefore, you can answer the call without even removing the headphones from your ears. To do this, you need to click on the corresponding button on the device screen.
How to find good headphones for your tablet
It would seem that the main purpose of any audio headset is to reproduce sound, and any model, even the cheapest one, can do this. Then why are some devices more expensive than others? It’s all about sound quality.
In headphones, the sound signal is a priori of lower quality than from speakers, and even more from sound monitors.
This is due to the fact that between the sound source and the one who receives it (in this case, the receiving side is the human ear), there must be at least a small distance for the sound vibrations to “travel” through the air.
Naturally, headphones with a microphone for a tablet are located close to the ear, and therefore the sound almost does not vibrate in the air, thereby losing quality.
Now let’s move on to how to choose the right wireless accessory.
To do this, I have compiled several basic criteria that need to be considered when choosing:
- External or internal.
Internal accessories are large options that cover the entire ear and have a top bezel, such as gaming headphones for a tablet. Usually they have better sound and more autonomy, but the head and ears get tired in such a headset pretty quickly.
An external headset is considered to be one that is inserted into the auricle. In such accessories it is convenient to play sports, and some even wear them all day, because the ears almost never get tired (except perhaps inside the shell).
- Battery life.
Since the wireless headset is not cabled to the tablet, it has its own small battery. But unlike the battery in mobile devices, the characteristics of sound-reproducing devices indicate not the number of milliamps per hour, but the approximate battery life. On average, this is 8-14 hours, depending on the model.
- Microphone presence.
If you plan to not only listen, but also talk through an accessory, then pay attention that they have a microphone.
- Noise isolation.
This individual setting depends on the preference of the user. If you do not want to hear extraneous noise, then choose a vacuum-type headset (in the case of an internal one) or closed external headphones. There are also models with adaptive noise reduction, which analyzes the sound from the microphone and filters the noise level.
- Frequency range.
Any playback device has a range of frequencies that it can reproduce. A person can recognize from 16 hertz to 20 kilohertz. The closer to this indicator the characteristics of the accessory, the better.
I recommend buying a headset with a sensitivity of 80 dB or higher.
Factors such as design, type of attachment on the head (or ears), and so on, I did not begin to paint, since these are too subjective criteria.
How to connect wireless headphones to iPad
To connect headphones to an Apple tablet, you need to understand which headset you are using: Airpods or any other. In the case of AirPods, you need to open the home screen on the tablet, then put the case with Airpods next to it and take the headphones out of it.
A few seconds will pass and the AirPods settings menu will appear on the iPad display, and the accessory will be linked to the iCloud account on the tablet. Everything is now ready to use.!
Instructions on how to connect Bluetooth headphones to a tablet (not Airpods):
- Turn on the audio device by pressing and holding the corresponding button.
- Go to the settings of the iPad, to the “Bluetooth” section and enable this function.
- Find the name of the accessory and connect to them by entering the password specified in the instructions (most often it is 0000).
- If the password is not requested, at the time of connecting the tablet to the Bluetooth channel of the accessory, hold down the headset power button, pairing the devices.
- The devices will connect to each other and now you can start using them.
In both cases, you only need to connect the headset once. All subsequent times, you just need to turn on Bluetooth and the connection will happen automatically.

If that doesn’t help, then restart both devices and try again. If this did not work, then check the operation of the accessory on another device. Maybe it’s the Bluetooth module of the tablet.
If there is a sudden loss of sound, the headset is most likely running out of power or located too far from the tablet.
You can connect any wireless headphones to a Samsung smartphone using Bluetooth technology.
- We turn on the pairing mode on the headphones. As a rule, there is a special button for this on the case.
On the Samsung device, open “Settings”, then “Connections”, tap “Bluetooth”,
When the headphones are displayed in the “Available devices” block, click on them and confirm the connection request.
After pairing, we find them among the connected devices, tap the gear on the right and, at our discretion, enable the parameters of their use.
Connecting Galaxy Buds
Samsung branded headphones can be connected either as described above or through the special Galaxy Wearable software. On some smartphones it is installed by default, but you can download it from the Google Play Store or Galaxy Store.
- Launch the application, select a suitable device from the list
and provide Galaxy Wearable with the required permissions
On the next screen, click “Continue” and give additional permissions. access to the calendar, SMS, etc.
Galaxy Buds can report notifications that come to the device, as well as read their contents. If you are interested in such a function, first we allow them to read the alerts, and then provide access to them on the smartphone.
We read the brief instructions for using the headphones and tap “Got it”. The device is ready for use.
Unlike a standard connection, the Galaxy Wearable app gives you more options to customize your buds.
Solving connection problems
If you have any problems during the connection process, please follow the recommendations posted on the Samsung support page.
- Make sure the headphones are charged. The charge level can be displayed in different colors by a special indicator. Check this information in the instruction manual. If there is no indicator, just connect the device directly to the mains for 20-30 minutes, as they will charge more slowly through a computer or laptop. Insert Galaxy Buds correctly into the slots of the charging case and connect to the charger.
Check Bluetooth connection. There should be no more than 10 meters between devices. If the headphones are not listed among the available devices, turn them off and back on again to re-pair. Return the Buds to the charging case, close it and reopen it. Restart the “Bluetooth” function on the Samsung smartphone.
Check for software updates on your Samsung Smartphone. Read more about this in a separate article on our website.
To update the Buds headphones, launch the application, scroll down the screen with the settings and tap “Headphone software update”.
