That's because the speakers are broken. Look in the User guide for reset instructions. If that doesn't work buy new speakers.

Bluetooth will not activate, tx-nr636 setting says its on but no light and device will not connect


To connect a Bluetooth-enabled device (phone, tablet, iPad, iPod, computer), follow the steps below:

1. Press and hold the button to put the receiver in "Pairing/Connecting" mode. You should see a red and blue light flashing in rapid succession somewhere on the receiver.
2. Turn on Bluetooth on the device you want to connect with the receiver and tap on Scan. The device will start scanning for nearby Bluetooth devices. When you see that it detected a device with a name similar to the receiver's name, tap on the name to pair with the device. If you are asked for a passcode/passkey, enter '0000' or '1234' (without the quotes). If the two pair, the light on the receiver will turn to a steady blue and you will see 'Connect' on the device. The two are now paired.Tap on Connect and then you will see Connected on the device. Your device and the receiver are now connected.

The steps above should be detailed in the set up guide that came with the receiver. There may even be a passkey/code provided in the guide. Use that one for pairing instead of the passkey I suggested above. Please note that pairing is a one-time procedure, required only the first time you are connecting the device to the receiver, a "get to know you" process. After that, you just need to connect the two.

I am assuming that you have already hooked up speakers to the receiver. Start playing music from your device and enjoy listening to it through the receiver's speakers !

How do I pair my I Pad with my new Philips portable speaker using bluetooth ( can connect fine using a cable)


If your portable speaker is Bluetooth-enabled, here is the general procedure:

1. Press and hold the function control button on the speaker until you see red and blue lights flashing in rapid succession on the speaker (the speaker is now in "pairing" mode).
2. Turn on Bluetooth on your iPad and then tap on Scan. iPad will begin scanning for nearby Bluetooth devices. When you see a name similar to that of your speaker, tap on it . You will be asked for a passcode/passkey to pair the iPad with the speaker. Enter '0000' or '1234' (without the quotes).
3. Once the passkey is accepted, the two devices are now paired. The light on the speaker should become a steady blue.
4. On the iPad, tap on Connect. If the iPad connects to the speaker, you will see Connected. You are done. Play some music from the iPad to see if you can hear it coming through the speaker.

You should have this procedure detailed in the set up guide that came with the speaker. Please note that pairing is required only for the first time you try to connect the two devices, to get them "acquainted" to each other. After that, all you need is to connect the iPad to the speaker every time you want to listen to your iPad through the speaker.

My speaker does not connect to my ipad


The speaker has to be paired with your iPad before it will work. Check your documentation on how to put your speaker in "discoverable" mode long enough for the iPad to find it. If you have previously paired your speaker and it at one time did function is your iPad, make sure that Bluetooth is turned on on the iPad. Also, check the batteries on the speaker if it has previously functioned with your iPad...

Digix BT-100 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker says not connected when I try to pair it with my ipod.


Kathryn,

The speaker can only pair with one device. I had the same issue pairing it with my phone and then to my iPad.

You simply need to unpair it with your daughters iPod by turning off the bluetooth on that iPod, turn off then back ON the speaker and connect again to your own iPod by turning on the Bluetooth, Selecting BT100 from the list and wait for it to say CONNECTED (not paired).
Hope this helps!
