How to Use Bluetooth With HDTV

By Breann Kanobi

As TV technology has increased, HDTVs are now offered with additional features such as Internet and Bluetooth compatibility. If you wish to use Bluetooth devices with your HDTV, you must first activate the television's Bluetooth and add the device to its menu. Most Bluetooth-compatible HDTVs ship with a universal Bluetooth remote, allowing you to control the television from a distance of up to 30 feet. Other possible Bluetooth devices include headphones, keyboards, mice and computers.

Step 1

Place the HDTV remote control sensor in front of the TV, if your HDTV uses an external sensor. If your TV utilizes a factory-installed sensor, skip this process.

Step 2

Remove the battery cover from the remote and insert the appropriate batteries. Replace the cover and press the "Power" button. The remote and TV should turn on, taking you to the "Setup" guide. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up the TV.

Step 3

Turn on any Bluetooth devices compatible with your TV.

Step 4

Press the "Menu" button, scroll to "Bluetooth" using the arrows and press "OK." Highlight the "Search for Devices" or "Start Searching for Devices" option and press "OK." Wait for the search to finish and highlight the device you wish to add.

Step 5

Highlight the "Add" or "Pair Devices" option and press "OK."
