How can you pair the Anker Classic Wireless speaker with a mobile device via Bluetooth? What do the different LED colors mean? How to use the buttons?
CAUTION: Electrical Device. Read the safety instructions!
Turn on the Anker Classic* speaker using the main switch (sliding switch) on the unit’s right side. The blue LED will light up.
Switch on the Bluetooth mode on your mobile device. It will automatically search for Bluetooth enabled devices nearby. Select the model “Anker A7908” from the list of devices. The blue LED flashes while the two devices connect (pairing). Once the connection is established, the LED turns solid blue. – In case your mobile device requests a password, please try the combination “0000”.
The speaker will always try to connect to the last used device (mobile phone, tablet, computer) once powered up. In case a connection cannot be established, the speaker switches back to the pairing mode.
Step 4 (optional)
If you want to connect the Anker Classic* speaker with another device, simply turn off the Bluetooth function on the first device (for instance “disconnect”) OR press both volume keys (+) and (-) for 3 seconds on the speaker. The Anker Classic will be reset and switches back to the pairing mode in order to connect to another device.
The following functions can be controlled via the four different buttons.
|Function||Button How To / Control|
|Power On||Set the sliding switch to “ON”|
|Power Off||Set the sliding switch to “OFF”|
