How to Connect Phone to LG using Bluetooth

Here is a step-by-step procedure I used to connect my LG Home theatre that has Bluetooth with other Bluetooth-enabled devices.

  • Press the power button on your LG Home theatre and wait for the welcome message to pop up.
  • Go to your remote control and press the “Function” button below the red power button on the remote
  • Use the left arrow button to navigate to “Bluetooth” before the FM antenna feature.
  • The LG home theatre indicator in the DVD player will indicate “Be Ready” which means your device is ready to connect to the available Bluetooth device you choose to go with.
  • Turn on Bluetooth on your phone or other Bluetooth-enabled device and click on the LG home theatre Bluetooth name. It’s usually in the form LG:xxxx where the “xxxx” stands for 4 digits.

The digits vary, so my Bluetooth digits are different from your own or other LG home theatre devices.

Once the two devices are connected the “Be Ready” will change to “connected” and later change to the name of your “phone”. If your phone is Infinis or iPhone or Samsung it will change to it and if you have changed your Bluetooth name it will change to it instead of the phone name and you can just relax to enjoy the new LG home theatre with Bluetooth.

Note: If you are using the old LG home theatre version you cannot use the Bluetooth feature. You cannot also swap. This implies that if you want to use an LG home theatre with Bluetooth you have to purchase either of the version mentioned above.

  1. Your explanation is quite commendable. I have this annoying experience with my LG C45 Xboom, whereby anybody leaving close to me can have unauthorized access to the system and begin to play his/her own music, even when it is switched off, with the bluetooth set to “lock”. Pls is there a way I can put an end to this?
