Having problems pairing?


When using the BTR-S as a transmitter, issues surrounding pairing usually arise from the non-Bluetooth device. Check to see if you can pair the BTR-S to a different device - if it pairs fine, it means that the issue is with your first device. It could be incompatible, although this is unusual. Please follow the steps below to resolve any issues:

  • Check that the BTR-S is fully charged before first use, this will take around 3 hours and is done via USB (supplied).  A red light indicates charging and this will turn off when fully charged. 
  • Have you moved the switch to ensure it's in the correct mode?  TX = Transmitter mode, RX = Receiver mode.
  • Make sure the BTR-S is off when connecting to the other device via Aux.
  • Have you held down the MFB button long enough to allow pairing?  This can take up to 7 seconds. Keep the button held down until the LED light flashes blue intermittently.
  • Are you holding the devices close together? They need to be within 1m (or as close as possible) whilst pairing and can be moved apart once connected. 
  • Does your device e.g. speaker or  headphones have a pairing button or is it automatic search?  If it has a pairing button, this will need to be held down in order for the devices to find each other.
  • Do you have anything else you can try the BTR-S on? I.e. stereo, TV etc?


Successfully paired but no sound?

  • It's unlikely that the BTR-S is faulty.  It could be an incompatibility issue with the device you are using it with, but more often it is an issue that can be resolved with the device you are trying to use.
  • To eliminate a fault, please test that the device is working by plugging it into another device.  You can use as a transmitter in your iPhone – then just disable your Bluetooth in your settings. The transmitter will automatically function.  You can also test in another dock or speakers if you are trying to use it as a receiver. 
  • If it works fine in another device, the issue lies with your device.
