Can you just tell me how you have unpaired speaker from Mobile

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

when I turn off the speaker, the blue tooth light on my phone goes from blue to white. Then when I turn the speaker back on, its not paired and I pair it, then select it on LG and the bluetooth symbol goes blue again and says its connected.

Android Device Expert: arsufi2002, Hobbyist replied 2 years ago

ok, Do this way...

1: Turn off speaker

2: Come back to Bluetooth section in Mobile, There you can see your Bluetooth speaker name which you are have already paired. Now Very Right to Bluetooth speaker name there is settings icon > Click on it > This bring you bluetooth device options > there you can see an option to unpair current bluetooth device. You may unpair it. Once you unpair, the device name gets vanished

3: Now Turn Braven speaker in discovery mode and search for Bluetooth speaker

4: Pair once when found

Note: Make sure you performed step two as said

If you don't mind, would you share the Braven speaker unit model

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Braven BRV-X

Here's a wierd thing, I got a call coming in and when I answered, the voice came through the Braven. And not only could I hear the voice ok, but Pandora was playing in the background! And when the person hung up, everything shut off.

Unfortunately I have to go. If you make a some suggestions, just leave them and I'll be sure to click on excellent.

Android Device Expert: arsufi2002, Hobbyist replied 2 years ago

Press Triangle button for 4 sec, you will hear a sound and that time you can search for Bluetooth Speaker in mobile

For more Info: Please see first section of video (0-47sec)

HI Fiyaz,

This is very frustrating, just the communications part, not your fault, not mine, just answer is a little glitchy. For example, I wrote a long msg just now and hit reply,,, and it disappears. You don't get it, I don't see it in the the thread. If you want to finish this...contact me at***@******.***.

Android Device Expert: arsufi2002, Hobbyist replied 2 years ago

Dear sir,

Thanks for your reply. I will be pointing this issue to my developers.

Since we have this issue ongoing, i shall opt out to some other techs who support phone calls. You can work with them.

I am opting out.

Thanks and have a great day..

Follow these steps please on your Android phone> connect to wifi then Pandora>

  1. At the Home screen, touch the Apps icon.

  2. Open the Settings app.

  3. Ensure that the Wi-Fi master control icon is on.

    If not, slide the master control from Off to On to activate the phone’s Wi-Fi radio.

If you’ve already configured your phone to connect to an available wireless network, it’s connected automatically. Otherwise, you have to connect to an available network,

Signing in with an existing Pandora account:
Tap 'I have a Pandora account,' then enter the email address and password ***** used to register with Pandora. (If you do not know your password, tap 'I forgot my password.' You will receive a password-reset email to your registered Pandora email address.)

Signing in without an existing Pandora account:
Tap 'I am new to Pandora.' Fill in all required fields, check acknowledgment of our terms of service, and tap 'Create Account Now.'
Create Station
From the Now Playing screen, go to the Station List by touching the back arrow in the upper left (near the Pandora icon) and selecting Stations.

Tap "Create a New Station" at the top of that screen. You can then type the name of an artist or song in the text box. The search should auto-complete; however, you can also press the magnifying glass on the keyboard once you're done typing to find a list of relevant artists and songs.

Also, from the initial search screen you can view and select our curated genre stations. Instead of typing out an artist or song in the search box, tap on the "Browse Genre Stations" option that appears underneath it.

You can also create a new station from the song or artist currently playing on the Now Playing screen. Tap the album artwork to view the track details, and tap the plus sign just below the album title. You can then choose to create a new station from the currently playing song or artist.
Back To Top

Edit Stations
You can edit stations on your Android device by accessing the Station Details screen for the station you wish to edit.

From the Station List, you can find Station Details for the currently playing station by tapping the three dots next to the station name. To edit your other stations, touch and hold the station name until a context menu appears, then select Station Details.
You can also edit the currently playing station from the Now Playing screen by tapping the thumb symbol in the top right corner of the screen.

To remove seeds from your station, tap the three dots to the right of the seed name. To add new artist or song seeds, select “Add Variety” located at the bottom of your list of seeds.

If you want to edit the station name or description, scroll to the bottom and tap the pencil to the right of the station name.
Back To Top

Edit Shuffle
You can edit the stations that are played in Shuffle mode from your Station List. From the Now Playing screen, you can go to the Station List by touching the back arrow in the upper left (near the Pandora icon).

Press and hold the "Shuffle" option at the top of your Station List. Once the Shuffle Options screen appears, the stations currently being mixed in your Shuffle will show up with check boxes. You can select or deselect as many stations as you'd like.

Touch the back arrow in the upper left again to save your changes and return to your station list.

Hi,

My pandora works fine, ie. it works through the phone speakers with no problems. The problem is getting it through the bluetooth device.

The weird thing is this...when I connect and pair with my bluetooth speaker device (bravera brx) and when someone calls in, I can hear them through the device. So the phone audio works, its just the media audio that does not. Local media does not, internet media does not.

I have to leave for about 2 hours. I'll look for your suggestions then.

I installed the app...same problem. When I first got the bluetooth device about a month ago it worked. I didn't use it and now I'm having this problem...I know its some toggled setting somewhere.

Android Device Expert: Randy Boman, Technician replied 2 years ago

okay, sorry about that. I will check on another solution and get back to you. Thank you for your patience.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago

ok, no worries on patience! Also, we used another brand new phone and had the exact same problem trying to hear local audio.
