Common Issues While trying to connect Vizio TV to Bluetooth Speaker and their Fixes
Connecting your Vizio TV to a Bluetooth speaker can be tricky sometimes. Here are some problems you might run into and some ways to fix them:
The TV can’t find the Bluetooth speaker
Sometimes you have already turned on your speaker but the pairing wasn’t active. Or some speakers have automatic turn off after 5 – 10 min of no activity. This might be one of the causes.
The other reason is may the Bluetooth speaker is not kept near your TV as a result its difficult to establish a connection. Try some methods to enhance your Bluetooth signal strength.
The Bluetooth keeps turning off
If Bluetooth keeps turning off, it might be because other electronic devices are interfering. Try moving the speaker away from other devices and then try to connect them again. You can also try updating the software on both the TV and speaker.
The sound doesn’t match the video
This means that your video is playing and the audio comes after the screen or vice versa. It is so frustrating to watch a good movie like that but you can fix this easily.
Just go to the audio settings of your TV and adjust the delay time. If that doesn’t work turn off and turn back on your TV.
The sound doesn’t sound good
One of the reasons for this to happen is your Bluetooth speaker and TV are not kept close enough for a smooth connection.
The other might be a silly mistake like either the volume on the TV is set or the speaker is. Make sure that volume is kept high enough for your preference for smooth and sound audio.
Rarely enough, it might be possible that other electronic devices that are kept aside are creating interference. Try moving out those devices farther.
