Bluetooth Range

Each Bluetooth device supports a specific adapter and features a limited Bluetooth range. Vizio soundbars can be connected to other devices within a range of 30 feet. Also, make sure nothing is shielding the signals between your soundbar and connected devices. We recommend shifting the soundbar near the TV within a one-foot range.

Reset the Device

Forget the Device

Sometimes you see your device paired in the menu but unable to transfer data. Remove your device from the pairing list and pair it again. Turn off the Bluetooth and wait for a minute. Turn it on and find your device and then pair it. 

Pairing Issue with PC

If you are pairing the Vizio soundbar with a PC, then make sure your desktop has Bluetooth drives installed. Bluetooth adapters need drives to program. Make sure your device has the latest drivers running. You can download it from Google. 

Move Other Devices Away

If you have a small media room, you can use aluminum foil between these devices to break the signal intrusion.
