Using the radio for the first time
1. Place your radio on a flat surface.
2. Fully extend the wire aerial located on the rear of your radio. Place
the wire antenna so that it is as straight as possible extending either
above or below the radio.
3. Insert the adaptor plug into the DC socket located on the rear of your
radio. Plug the adaptor into a standard 13 amp mains socket outlet.
The display will show 'WELCOME' for a few seconds. During this time
the radio is scanning to find a DAB radio signal. After a short time the
current time and day will appear on the display.
4. If no signal is found, '0:00' will be displayed. It may be necessary to
relocate your radio to a position giving better reception. You should
then carry out a scan to find stations as described on page 9.
IMPORTANT: The mains adaptor is used as the means of connecting
the radio to the mains supply. The mains socket used for the radio must
remain accessible during normal use. In order to disconnect the radio
from the mains completely, the mains adaptor should be removed from
the mains socket outlet completely.
Characters appearing on the LCD display indicate that the radio is connected
to and powered from the mains supply.

Bluetooth mode
The Bluetooth mode on your radio allows you to play audio, play sound from
video files and stream music from Bluetooth capable devices such as your
moblie phone, computer, tablet etc. through your radio's loudspeaker.
'Bluetooth pairing' occurs when two Bluetooth enabled devices agree to
establish a connection and communicate with each other.
When a Bluetooth enabled device such as your Blutune 40 radio is in a
'discoverable' state other Bluetooth devices can detect, pair with or connect to it.
Your radio will flash its Bluetooth indicator light when it is discoverable or
when it is trying to connect to a previously paired Bluetooth device. When a
device is paired with and connects to your radio, the Bluetooth indicator light
on the radio will remain lit.
Bluetooth connectivity performance may vary depending on the connected
Bluetooth devices. Please refer to the Bluetooth capabilities of your device
before connecting to your radio. All features may not be supported on some
paired Bluetooth devices.
A Bluetooth connection can provide a link for audio up to a distance of
approximately ten metres. When pairing two Bluetooth enabled devices, for
convenience, we recommend they should be no more than 2 to 3 metres apart.
The presence of other functioning Bluetooth devices during connection may
lead to operational difficulties. Bluetooth is a short-range radio communication
system and generally Bluetooth devices can communicate with each other
clearly within a regular sized room or office. The reliability of a Bluetooth
connection between different rooms will greatly depend upon the construction
of the room and walls etc. Bluetooth communication range may be substantially
reduced if the signal passes through a solid object.
19
Human bodies, brick and concrete walls, heavy furniture or bookcases will
all reduce the operational range of your Bluetooth devices to a greater or
lesser extent. Glass, dry-wall or wood paneled walls and office partitions may
have a less severe but noticeable effect. Metal pipes, foil-lined plasterboard,
metal window frames and domestic wiring can also have an effect. You
should position your Bluetooth devices closer to each other if you observe
communication difficulties.
WiFi networks and cordless phones generally use similar radio frequencies to
Bluetooth and may interfere with one another. If any interference is noticed,
then try relocating the radio or one of the other devices.
Some Bluetooth devices may require a 'Passkey' (an authentication key) in
order to establish a link between devices. A passkey is similar to a password,
although you only need to use the passkey once to establish a link. If your
device asks for a passkey to be able to pair with your radio then enter a code
of 0000 (four zeroes).
The Bluetooth capabilities of your radio enable it to receive audio from many
Bluetooth capable devices including mobile phones, personal computers and
PDAs. Only one Bluetooth device can be connected to your radio at a time.
It supports the following Bluetooth profiles and functionality.
Your radio supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) which is
a stereo audio connection that streams stereo music from PCs, mobile
phones etc,
Your radio supports AVRCP (Audio Video Remote Control Profile) which
allows your radio to control music playback from the connected device.
Note: Some mobile phones may temporarily disconnect from your radio when
you make or receive calls. Some devices may temporarily mute their Bluetooth
audio streaming when they receive text messages, emails or for other reasons
unrelated to audio streaming. Such behaviour is a function of the connected
device and does not indicate a fault with your radio.
Connecting Bluetooth devices
1. Ensure that the Bluetooth capability on your phone, tablet or PC is
enabled. You may need to refer to the user documentation for your
device, since the method will vary with each device.
2. Press and release the On/Off button to switch on the radio.
3. Repeatedly, press and hold the Mode button on your radio until the
Bluetooth mode is selected. Your radio will show that it is 'discoverable'
by flashing the Bluetooth indicator on the display.
2
3
4. Using the Bluetooth settings of your phone, tablet or PC direct it to
search for 'discoverable' devices. After a few seconds, you should see
a device named 'Blutune 40'.
5. Select 'Blutune 40' to cause your phone, tablet or PC to pair with your
radio and to establish a connection.
6. Once the connection is established, the Bluetooth indicator on the
radio display will remain lit. You can now begin playing music from
your phone etc.
Some Bluetooth devices may require a 'Passkey' (an authentication key) in
order to establish a link between devices. A passkey is similar to a password,
although you only need to use the passkey once to establish a link. If your
device asks for a passkey to be able to pair with your radio then enter a code
of 0000 (four zeroes).
If you need any further advice, please call our Technical Helpline on :020 8758 0338 (Mon-Fri)
20
Playing audio files in Bluetooth mode
When you have successfully connected your radio with the chosen
Bluetooth device you can start to play your music using the controls on
your connected Bluetooth device.
1. Once playing has started adjust the volume to the required setting
using the Volume buttons on your radio or your enabled bluetooth
device.
2. Provided that your phone, tablet or PC allows volume control when
using Bluetooth we recommend that for normal Bluetooth listening
the radio's volume control is set to a high level. This will permit the
audio volume to be controlled using the connected Bluetooth device.
This will generally be the more convenient method of controlling the
volume. However, if you are using headphones plugged into your
radio, we strongly recommend that the radio's volume control is used
as the means of adjusting the audio volume. You will then need to set
the volume on the connected Bluetooth device to a higher level. The
purpose here is to prevent unexpectedly loud noises in the headphones,
when changing modes in the radio or when switching on and off.
3. The audio player in your phone, tablet or PC may be able to respond
to the Play/Pause, Next track and Previous track controls on the
radio. To play or pause the audio press and release the Tuning control.
To access the next or previous track, rotate the Tuning control clockwise or anti-clockwise as required.
Note:That not all player applications or devices may respond to all of
these controls.
Note: If the unit is in the Bluetooth mode and it is not connected to a
Bluetooth device for more than 15 minutes it will automatically switch
to the standby mode. The LCD will revert to the standby mode clock
display. To use the radio again, simply press the On/Standby button
to switch it on.

Disconnecting a Bluetooth device
You can only have one Bluetooth device connected to the radio at any
one time although it may be paired with several devices.
Once you have a Bluetooth enabled device connected to your radio it
cannot be interrupted by another Bluetooth device unless you choose to
break the connection.
1
1. To force a disconnection, press and release the Menu button on the
radio. 'PAIRING' will flash on the radio's display.
2. Press and release the Tuning control. The radio will sound a double
beep provided that your radio's volume is set to a suitable listening
level.
2
3. The radio will disconnect device and then will become 'discoverable'
for a period of approximately 60 seconds. The Bluetooth indicator will
flash on the screen. You may then pair your radio with a new device.
Some Bluetooth devices will automatically connect while others may
need you to confirm the connection. If no new connection is made,
then the radio will attempt to reconnect to the previously connected
device.
4. If you no longer want your Bluetooth device to be paired with your
radio you will need to delete the relevent pairing on the device. Please
refer to the Bluetooth documentation for your phone, tablet, PC etc.
for details of how to cancel current pairings.
