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.

SOURCE: paired with my laptop but no sound comes out of the speaker. my laptop still plays throuugh its own speakers.

Although I have a different model, I was having the same problem. By right clicking on the speaker icon next to the clock in the icon tray you'll get different options. Click on 'Playback Devices' and then you'll see all the speakers that are active. In my case, the default speaker was set to be my laptop speakers (you can see this because of the green dot). By simply changing the bluetooth speaker to be your default speaker (by right clicking on it) you'll hear sound again. And when the blueetooth speaker is disconnected, the laptop use your 'secondary' speakers, that is, your laptop speakers. Hope this helps!

Why cant i get my computer to dicover my auvio pbt200 bluetooth speaker?


  1. Try playing other audio files. Ensure that audio can play fine from the same audio device when using a headphone.


  2. If Step 1 is not the case, try listening to audio by connecting the speaker to the Bluetooth device using the Aux-in cable. This will isolate if it's a Bluetooth connection issue or not. Remember to disconnect/un-pair the Bluetooth connection first.


  3. If the issue only happens when connecting via Bluetooth, do the following:
    1. Adjust the distance between the speaker and the Bluetooth device.
    2. Reset the speaker to its factory default settings. For instructions on how to reset your speaker, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
    3. Clear the current pairing entry from your Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to clear the pairing entries, consult the user's manual of your Bluetooth device.
    4. Try re-pairing the speaker and the Bluetooth device. For instructions on how to pair the speaker with the Bluetooth device, go to the product's support site to view the relevant knowledgebase article.
    5. To further isolate, try pairing the speaker with other Bluetooth device.

  4. If the issue happens when connecting either on Bluetooth or Aux-in, please contact Creative Customer Support via email.
Note: Creative Bluetooth speakers do not need any driver to operate. You may need to update the Bluetooth driver of your computer's built-in Bluetooth adapter or your USB dongle. To determine whether your computer or USB dongle is updated with the latest Bluetooth driver, please refer to their user's guide or website for information.

Great sounding speaker, but nothing but trouble with the bluetooth. It appears that I can only have one device paired at a time. In order to connect another device, it breaks the current pairing. A


Yes this is a 'feature' of Bluetooth. (I have never seen the point of Bluetooth... Wi-Fi does everything it does, but better !)

It DOES usefully enable a phone or tablet to play though headphones or speaker and to use a headset 'cordlessly'...

Consider instead a 'Bluetooth Receiver' (under US $10 from China) connected to a FM Stereo Bug (Transmitter) - Then you can use any number of quality FM Radios (including phones with built in FM) up to 50 metres or so away...

How do i pair my phone to play on my insignia speaker?


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

The steps above should be detailed in the set up guide that came with the speaker. 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 phone to the speaker, a "get to know you" procedure. After that, you just need to connect the two.

Digix BT-100 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is not recognized by my android MOTO X cell phone.


Is the speaker paired with another device?

You may try turning off the bluetooth on your phone, turning off the speaker, turning back ON the speaker and then turning on the bluetooth on your phone again. This should reset the phone to SEARCH for BT-100.

Once you SEARCH for available devices you should see BT-100 on the list. Select BT-100 and it should pair. If it does not CONNECT be sure to press BT-100 again to connect. The speaker will BEEP, indicating that the speaker and the phone are now connected.

If you continue to have trouble feel free to contact the manufacturer at support1@digixmedia.com or going to http://www.contelusa.net

How do I set pairing mode


You will need to be sure that your device has BLUETOOTH. If it has bluetooth please turn on the bluetooth settings on your android device. You will now want to turn on the speaker.

Using the android device you will search for available bluetooth devices. Once you see BT-100 you will select that to PAIR. Some devices will automatically CONNECT after the devices have been paired. If not, please press BT-100 again to CONNECT. The BT-100 speaker should BEEP indicating that they have connected and the speaker is now ready to use.

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!
