Question 10: How do I re-pair a previously connected device to my boombox?

[ Edited ]

Note: If you unpair your Bluetooth device using the Bluetooth pairing button on your boombox, the Bluetooth device is no longer remembered and you must pair your device as if it were for the first time. For help with Bluetooth pairing, see Question 8.

 

  1. On your boombox, press the Source button repeatedly until the Bluetooth_icon.gif (Bluetooth) indicator appears on the LCD.
  2. Make sure that the Bluetooth device is turned on and within 33 feet (10 meters) of your boombox.
  3. On your boombox, press the Bluetooth Icon A.gif (Bluetooth pairing) button. Your boombox enters pairing mode and the Bluetooth LED blinks.
    Note: Your boombox will remain in pairing mode for 30 minutes or until it pairs with a Bluetooth device.
  4. On the Bluetooth device, start pairing mode, then select NS-BBTCD01. See the instructions that came with the device for more information about selecting a device. The Bluetooth LED on your boombox lights solid when pairing is complete.
    Note: You do not have to enter a password when re-pairing to a previously connected device.

Question 13: What should I do if my boombox is not pairing with a Bluetooth device?

[ Edited ]
  • Make sure that Bluetooth is selected as the audio source. Press the Source button one or more times until BT appears on the LCD, then press the Bluetooth Icon A.gif (Bluetooth pairing) button.
  • Make sure that the Bluetooth device is turned on.
  • You may not have selected your boombox on the Bluetooth device. Make sure that the Bluetooth device is in pairing mode, then select NS-BBTCD01 on the Bluetooth device. For more information, see the instructions that came with the Bluetooth device.
  • Shorten the distance between your boombox and the Bluetooth device. The maximum distance is 33 feet (10 meters).  However, this distance may be reduced if the wireless signal has to pass through walls or other obstructions.
  • Make sure that your Bluetooth device supports the A2DP or AVRCP Bluetooth protocols. See the User Guide that came with your Bluetooth device for more information. See Question 29 for information about finding your User Guide.

Question 17: What should I do if my boombox is not playing sound?

[ Edited ]
  • Make sure that the AC power adapter is connected securely and correctly to your boombox and the power outlet.
  • Make sure that your boombox is turned on.
  • Turn up the volume using the volume control knob.
  • The wrong audio source may be selected. Press Source until you see the correct indicator on the LCD.
  • The batteries may be dead. Replace the batteries with six type C batteries. Make sure that the + and symbols on the batteries align with the + and symbols inside the battery compartment. Do not mix old and new batteries.
  • If you are using a connected device, your audio cable may be damaged. Replace the audio cable. If the problem stops, the cause was the original audio cable.
  • If using Bluetooth, shorten the distance between your boombox and the Bluetooth device and try re-pairing your device. The maximum distance is 33 feet (10 meters). However, this distance may be reduced if the wireless signal has to pass through walls or other obstructions.
  • Disconnect your headphones. Sound will not play through the boombox speakers when headphones are connected.
  • For help with Bluetooth pairing, see Question 8.
  • If you are trying to play a CD, see Question 18.

Question 18: What should I do if my CD will not play?

  • Make sure that the CD is correctly inserted with the label facing up.
  • Make sure that the correct audio source is selected. Press Source repeatedly until CD appears on the LCD.

  • Make sure that your CD is compatible. Your boombox can play CDs, CD-Rs, and CD-RWs.
  • Your CD may be damaged. Try playing another CD.
