If you need a PIN code, it should be displayed on the device’s screen, e.g. if you are trying to pair your phone with the TV, you’ll see a PIN on your phone’s screen and you’ll have to enter it into the TV.

In some cases, you may be asked to enter a PIN even if your device doesn’t display it. In this case, try entering “0000” and let me know if that works?
