This post supplies Sony SRS XE200 speaker pairing directions, by way of Bluetooth. to link it to common portable devices. E.g. These include the Apple line of device like the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This routine also works for Android base devices as well, such as Samsung and LG phones, as well as Amazon Fire tablets.
Sony SRS XE200 Pairing, Step by Step
With your SRS XE200 powered OFF (power button is dark), run through these directions to pair it to your source BT mobile device. We’re using an iPad Air computer for this demo.
1. Go to the Home Screen on your Source Device
Firstly, press the Home button to reveal the smart device’s Home screen.
2. Find the Settings App
We found ours on the second page of the Home screen, as shown next.
3. Bring up the Settings App
Thirdly, touch the Settings app icon.
The smart device then shows the first page of its settings, as we see in the next step.
4. Go to the Bluetooth Settings Page to Continue with Sony SRS XE200 Pairing
Our Bluetooth Settings screen displays as follows. Note that our Bluetooth is running here. But since our Sony SRS XE200 is currently shut OFF (is not in Bluetooth discovery mode), it does not show up in the Bluetooth devices list. Also, we don’t see it since we’ve never paired this speaker with our mobile device before.
5. Turn On your Sony SRS XE200
Turn on the speaker by quickly pressing its Power-Pairing button. See this, pointed at by the green arrow, in the next picture.
The unit then powers up, and its status lamp glows green, as we in the next picture.
But since our tablet does not know about this speaker, the SRS XE200 will not pair with it automatically.
6. Put the XE200 in Discovery Mode
Now, to see this speaker on your device, place it into Bluetooth discovery / pairing mode. So to accomplish that, press and hold the Pairing button, and release when you hear the rising pitch beep sequence and the speaker announces, “Bluetooth pairing,” in a lady’s voice.
Find the Pairing button in the buttons panel, second one down from the top, just below the Power button, as we see in the last shot.
In addition to the voice announcement, the Bluetooth Status lamp begins flashing blue in the pulse-pulse-pause-pulse-pulse-pause pattern, as we see next.
7. Find the Speaker on your Mobile Device to Continue with Sony SRS XE200 Pairing
See the screen shot next. We found our XE200, as pointed at by the green arrow.
8. Now Pair with the XE200
Tap the listed speaker in the discovered devices list.
Your source device then pairs with this BT speaker.
E.g. The the mobile device’s Bluetooth Settings screen might then change to look something like the following. Note the now-connected SRS XE200 entry, as pointed at by the green arrows in the next screenshot.
9. Done with Sony SRS XE200 Pairing !
At last, we have now successfully paired the XE200 BT speaker with with a common mobile tablet device.
