Now that you know that your Hisense TV supports Bluetooth, it’s time to connect it to your Bluetooth device.
First, you must ensure that the device you’re trying to connect with your TV is in pairing mode. We know it sounds obvious, but some users run into this issue.
The process of getting into pairing mode is unique for every device. Take AirPods, for example. A user must press the case button and hold it until the white light starts blinking.

What to Do if Your Hisense TV Does Not Have Bluetooth?
We all know that not all Hisense TVs are Bluetooth-ready. So, what to do if yours doesn’t have Bluetooth?
The best solution is to get yourself a Bluetooth transmitter. It connects to the audio output of your TV and transmits sound in the wireless form to nearby Bluetooth devices like portable speakers, wireless headsets, and many more.
In simple words, the device allows you to use Bluetooth on a non-Bluetooth TV.
You can consider buying any of these Bluetooth transmitters:
- Avantree Oasis Plus Bluetooth Transmitter & Receiver for TV

- KotiSIG Bluetooth Transmitter Receiver
How to Fix Bluetooth Connection Issues on Your Hisense TV?
Sometimes, enabling Bluetooth on a Hisense TV can be a hassle! If your TV has Bluetooth, why isn’t it working? Don’t worry, as it’s normal to face these connectivity problems. It would only take a minute or two to find an amicable solution.
1. Soft Reset Your TV
To perform a soft reset, unplug your TV from the power outlet. Now, press the power button on your TV and hold it for 10–20 seconds. It will drain any remaining residual power from the TV and allow it to perform a soft reset. After one minute, turn on your TV and try pairing again.
2. Keep Your Bluetooth Device in Range
Keep your connected Bluetooth device under 10 meters or 30 feet of range from your Hisense TV. Also, ensure to turn off Bluetooth on all other nearby devices to lower the chances of interference.
When I connected my Bluetooth speakers to my Hisense TV, I made sure to turn off the Bluetooth on my phone just so it wouldn’t be confusing and I can seamlessly connect the two. I’ve experienced my phone connecting to the speakers first, making my Hisense TV unable to connect.
3. Forget and Pair Again
Sometimes, your device may connect to your Hisense TV, but you might not be able to use it because of connectivity issues. To deal with this, try re-pairing your devices.
First, forget or remove that device from your Hisense TV, and then restart both your Hisense TV and Bluetooth device. Once both your devices have restarted, try pairing them again.
4. Keep Your Hisense TV and Bluetooth Device Firmware Up to Date
Ensure that the Bluetooth gadget you’re trying to connect and your Hisense TV are running on the latest firmware.
5. Reset Your Modem or Router
To reset your router, unplug it from the power outlet, wait for at least one minute, and then plug it back in. Try pairing your Bluetooth device with your TV, but wait until your TV reestablishes a stable connection with the Wi-Fi again.
Try any or all of these proven fixes to resolve your connectivity problem. If you still have Bluetooth connectivity issues on your Hisense TV, consider contacting the official Hisense Support!
