Singing Machine Won’t Connect to Bluetooth – Quick Steps!

Note: The Singing Machine app is not necessarily required for the setup of the speaker!

1. Activate the “Pairing” Mode

To make the Singing Machine discoverable for other nearby wireless devices, you must place the speaker under “Pairing” mode.

For this purpose, you must press and hold the “PAIR” button on the outer periphery of the unit for a little over 5 seconds until the LED starts blinking.

The button is located right underneath the Singing Machine’s trademark logo and on the left of the directional pad.

The LED lamp should illuminate and start blinking in blue upon releasing the button, meaning the Singing Machine can be now discovered from the device and ready to pair.

Note: The Singing Machine’s “Pairing” mode lasts for as long as the LED is blinking!

2. Re-enable the “Bluetooth” Feature

This solution is extremely helpful if your device’s Bluetooth coverage is congested or if there’s interference with other Bluetooth wireless devices.

Let’s learn how to re-enable the Bluetooth on Android first!

  2. Enter the “Bluetooth” or “Wireless” tab.
  3. Tap on the slider to disable the Bluetooth.
  4. Wait for 15–20 seconds and tap the slider.

3. Disconnect your Singing Machine

Like many other single-channel Bluetooth speakers, the Singing Machine too can be connected with only one device at a time.

Thus, to play music from different devices, you must unpair your Singing Machine from all existing connections.

Here’s how to unpair the Singing Machine from other devices in 2 methods!

  • Disconnect” the Singing Machine from the Bluetooth settings.
  • Forget” the Singing Machine’s profile in the Bluetooth settings.

Disconnecting the Singing Machine only works if your device has successfully established a connection to the speaker.

So if you have already paired with the device previously, it will be registered with a Bluetooth profile in your device’s settings, allowing you to select “Forget.”

Warning: Forgetting the speaker removes the device’s profile and erases all existing settings!

4. Install & Set Up Singing Machine App

So, while all Singing Machine models can be discovered and configured manually through your mobile’s “Bluetooth” settings, the Singing Machine app allows for quick and seamless pairing. 

The platform contains thousands of pre-edited karaoke tracks, so you won’t have to play music from other third-party applications.

Note: The Singing Machine mobile app is available on both Android and iOS!

Here’s how to install and set up the Singing Machine app with the karaoke speaker:

5. Reset Karaoke’s Wireless Settings

In case you’re still experiencing issues with setting up the Singing Machine over Bluetooth, you should power reset the speaker’s hardware.

Your device uses a rechargeable internal battery, so the power cycle should be achieved through your karaoke speaker’s built-in “Power” button.

Here’s how to start and complete a power cycle on the Singing Machine:

  1. Install the Singing Machine’s adapter into a power source.
  2. Next, connect the charging jack to the speaker’s A/C port.
  3. Press and hold the “Power” button next to the frontal pad.
  4. Release the button after 15 seconds and unplug the A/C.
  5. Next, wait for 30 seconds and reboot the Singing Machine.

6. Test on Alternative Wireless Devices

There may be a Bluetooth compatibility issue, preventing the Singing Machine from discovering or connecting.

The next step is to discover the karaoke speaker through the Bluetooth settings of an alternative wireless device and attempt to establish a connection, to localize the problem.

How to Find a Singing Machine Bluetooth Profile?

The Singing Machine’s connection name is typically “SINGING MACHINE” and the speaker’s model.

You should also remember to search for the speaker under the “Discoverable Devices” or “Discovered” section since the Singing Machine’s profile should not exist on the new device.

Note: If the speaker has paired successfully, the status will adjust to “CONNECTED.”

7. Reinstall the Singing Machine App

reinstall the singing machine app

The Singing Machine may be refusing to pair due to an existing issue with the Singing Machine app.

So, the next step is to uninstall and reinstall the app through Google Play or the App Store to erase any pre-configure Bluetooth settings preventing the connection.

Here’s how to reinstall the app on Android and iOS:

  1. Find the Singing Machine app’s icon on the homepage.
  2. Hold the application for 3–5 seconds to show the settings.
  3. On Android, drag the icon to the Trash Bin → “Uninstall.”
  4. Download the app through Google Play or the App Store.

Also, Forget the Singing Machine’s Profile!

Before reinstalling the application, you should manually forget the Singing Machine’s connection from your device’s Bluetooth settings.

Hence, adding the speaker will erase any pre-configured wireless settings that may re-apply after installing the Singing Machine application.

Note: Search for the Singing Machine’s profile under the “Remembered Devices” page!

8. Use the 3.5 mm “LINE INPUT” Jack (Workaround)

use the 3.5 mm “line input” jack

So, if you’ve tried everything but the Singing Machine still does not connect via Bluetooth, you should consider switching to a wired connection. 

The Singing Machine comes with multiple wired connection options, including a standard 2.0/3.0 USB and a regular 3.5 mm AUX “LINE INPUT” port.

As long as your device supports audio AUX connection, you won’t have to use your device’s wireless Bluetooth connection.

What are the Benefits of Using Wired Connection?

Switching over to a 3.5 mm jack provides significantly higher audio quality at the small cost of having to keep your phone or laptop close to the speaker.

While Bluetooth signals often undergo drops or disruptions, you will forget wireless interference after switching to a wired connection.

Tip: Use a shorter AUX cable to prevent attenuation of the signal!

Quick Recap

Whenever the Singing Machine won’t connect to Bluetooth, hold the “PAIR” button for 5–10 seconds, re-add the speaker’s profile, and reinstall the Singing Machine app.

Well, if the issue persists, factory reset the speaker and switch to a wired connection.
