Cannot connect with Bluetooth®
If you cannot pair your Bose speaker or headphones to a Bluetooth device, like a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or TV, here are some things to try.
Reboot the Bluetooth® device.
Electronics, such as cell phones, tablets or computers, might need to be reset on occasion to correct minor issues. This is typically done by shutting down the device, then powering it on again.
Clear your Bose product memory of previously-connected Bluetooth® devices.
Your Bose product remembers the last several devices it connected to so it can quickly reconnect to them. In case there is an issue with the device memory, clear it and then try to reconnect the device. For more info, see Clearing the product memory of paired Bluetooth® devices and Connecting a Bluetooth® device.
Remove your product from the memory of the Bluetooth® device, then try again.
In the Bluetooth settings of the Bluetooth device, find the list of previously connected products. Remove your product from the list, including any duplicate listings labeled LE (Low Energy), then reconnect it to the device. For more info, see Connecting a Bluetooth® device.
Try connecting a different Bluetooth® device.
If your Bose product can connect to another device, Bluetooth functionality is working. In cases like this, the issue could be with the first device or its settings.
Select the type of device you are trying to connect:
Smartphone or tablet
