There are many reasons why you may want to watch your Toshiba TV with Bluetooth headphones, maybe a family member is sleeping, your partner may hate the shows you love, or you may even just like the sound that emits from your favorite headphones. Either way, you are probably wondering, can I connect Bluetooth headphones to Toshiba TV?
You can connect Bluetooth headphones to a Toshiba TV, as long as it is a Fire Smart TV, has Roku installed, or has Bluetooth connection capabilities. In order to find out if your Toshiba TV has Bluetooth, you can simply check the sound menu.
In this article, we are going to go through the necessary steps to take to ensure your Toshiba TV can connect to your headphones via Bluetooth, as well as how to connect them, and the simple solutions to any problems that may occur so that you can start enjoying your home entertainment system through your favorite headphones in no time.,
As we mentioned already, if your Toshiba TV has Roku built-in or is a Fire TV, it is a smart TV, which means it absolutely has Bluetooth capabilities.
If you are not quite sure what kind of Toshiba TV you have or even if you have Roku built-in, don’t worry! There is an incredibly easy way to tell if your Toshiba has Bluetooth capabilities within minutes.
In order to check for this function, just navigate to your Settings Menu, then select Sound, then Bluetooth! If there is no Bluetooth option under Sound, you most likely do not have Bluetooth connection capabilities, i.e. your Toshiba is not a smart TV.
If you do see Bluetooth listed as a sound option, you are already halfway there in the process of connecting your headphones to your Toshiba TV.
Now, if you are already looking at the Bluetooth menu within the Sound Menu on your Toshiba TV, you should simply click the Bluetooth toggle to turn it on.
Simultaneously, you need to click the pair button on your Bluetooth headphones. Each set of headphones is slightly different but it is most likely located on the case or the headphones themselves, and you may need to hold it down until you see a light turn on or flash.
Then, you should be able to see the name of your headphones appear on the screen on your Toshiba TV. With your television remote, select the headphones you wish to pair.
That’s it! You should now be able to hear your audio entertainment straight into your ears instead of through the speakers.
Although the process of connecting your Bluetooth headphones to your Toshiba TV should be fairly foolproof, there could be a few problems you encounter along the way.
The most likely problem you could be facing is that your headphones are not appearing on the available connection list on the TV. If that happens to you, you should first check to ensure your headphones are fully charged, turned on, and that the pairing mode is activated.
If you still can’t see them, it’s likely that they are already connected to another device. Check your smartphone, computer, tablet, or any other device to which they could be connected and disconnect them in the Bluetooth menu.
You could also be struggling to connect them if the headphones are too far away from the television itself. We recommend turning both the headphones and the television off, standing within two or three feet of the TV with the headphones, turning them back on, and trying to pair all over again.
Still not working? It may be time to contact either the Toshiba support team or your headphone provider.
In order to find out which device is giving you trouble; you can try to connect another device such as your phone or a speaker to the TV. If that works, it’s quite clearly your headphones that are causing the problem, whereas if nothing will connect, it must be your Toshiba TV.
If you purchased a new Toshiba TV within the last few years, it is very likely that it is a smart TV, which means you will have Bluetooth connection capabilities.
However, if you are not quite sure whether or not your Toshiba TV is a smart TV, don’t worry, as you now know, it’s quite easy to find out if your TV has Bluetooth built-in, all you need is your remote.
Hopefully, you now have all the information you need to connect your Bluetooth headphones to your Toshiba TV to give you another option to enjoy your home entertainment system!
